Scrapbook Page Ideas: Black and White with Polka Dots and Stripes

I really love all of the wonderful people who have been reading my blog and leaving such uplifting comments. Every week I see my homemade cards and scrapbook pages getting better and better and it is because all of the wonderful support from those reading my blog.

For my first scrapbook page this week (sorry it’s late) I combined several challenges that were available on other sites. Even mixing the different challenges turned into a beautiful baby girl scrapbook page of Braelynn. Here is the finished product.


I know there is a lot going on here, but I am entering this page into six different challenges. Here’s what the rules of requirement were for each challenge I entered.

365 Cards Blog – You had to use three different “R” items on your page or card. I used ribbon, rick rack and rhinestones; which are kind of hard to see in the photo, but are located in the left corner of the page next to the rick rack.

All Sorts Challenge Blog – For this challenge you were required to use the colors black and white in combination with one other color. The other color I chose was lime green.

Crazy 4 Challenges Blog – This was any anything goes challenge.

Secret Crafter Blog – In this challenge you had to feature spots and stripes on your page. I didn’t have any striped paper in a color combination that would work well for this page, so I created my own with a plaid maker from Stampin’ Up. My daughter is also wearing a black and white polka dot shirt, which I thought went well with the theme.

Sketch Saturday – This was a challenge that required you to follow a certain sketch or layout for the scrapbook page you were creating. I think the sketch turned out well.

Andrea’s Stampin’ Moments Blog – This is where the lime green came into play and why I chose that color over other colors. The challenge required you to use black, white and lime green in your scrapbook layout or homemade greeting card.

I hope you all enjoyed

looking or viewing this scrapbook page as much as I enjoyed making it and displaying it. Now get to scrappin’ those scrapbooks and keepsakes.
