Sunday Paper: Jackson Layouts

It's the end of May already!  At the beginning of May I challenged myself - and YOU - to create a layout a week in celebration of National Scrapbooking month.  How'd you do?  I made 7 layouts and a few cards!

When I started the challenge I had ideas of finishing up a scrapbook but my Jackson paper pack was laying out from a previous workshop so I decided to go to town with it.  Often I get busy making layouts, adding stamped images and other embellishments I forget about the coordinating complements.  Jackson Complements are cute!  There are many pieces and sentiments I really like.  My mission in creating layouts with my Jackson papers that I also use as much of the coordinating complements as possible!  In the end, I have a few left but I also have the Jackson Picture My Life cards and I can use up the rest of my complements with those. And... truth be told another Jackson paper pack is on my list to get because I like it that much!

Where do you get your inspiration for scrapbooking?  Pinterest, magazines, idea books...  Sometimes it's one element of the layout that gets me started, other times the sketch and in this case... the whole sha-bang!  I scraplifted this first layout from a layout I found on Pinterest.  This layout was designed by Dana Kessler, a fellow CTMH consultant.  She has a knack for creating beautiful pages.  The chevron on the outside of the pages grabbed my attention and it was the perfect layout to get me in the complement-embellishing mojo. 

This layout was created with Jackson papers, Jackson Complements and Brave Enamel Shapes. I went quick and easy with this layout.  There is are no stamped images and no cricut cuts.  Although, I'm sure the chevrons on the sides could easily be cut using the Artbooking cartridge!  I had different pieces cut from different projects and hand cut everything.

Clean, straight lines in my layouts really appeal to me.  They are definitely my go-to.  This next layout was created using Jackson papers and Jackson Complements.  I also added some embellishments from My Crush Wildwood Sticky Tabs and My Crush Wildwood Clips.

Each paper pack has 3-double-sided designed papers.  Depending on the papers that are pared together the layouts can take on a completely different look.  This layout was created using Jackson papers, Jackson Complements, CTMH Spray Pen (with Chocolate Ink and Create-A-Shade Paint), Boardwalk Washi Tape, Lagoon Houndstooth Washi Tape, Artisian Studs and Magic Mesh.  The sentiments on the bottom of the left pages are from the zip-strip on the Jackson papers.  I'm telling ya' every bit of this paper pack is fun!

I wrapped up my Jackson layouts with this fun layout.  I was inspired by a layout that my upline Karina McQuistan created and scraplifted this idea.  This is the perfect layout to use up scrap papers!  This layout was created using Jackson papers, Jackson Complements and Brave Enamel shapes

That's a wrap for my Jackson layouts for now! Like I said I'm going to get another paper pack because I really enjoyed playing with the patterns in this paper.  With 3 boys and all the outdoor adventures we have I'm certain I'll be filling these layouts quickly with cute smiles and fun memories!

Wait, just a minute! I said I completed 7 layouts didn't I?  Sure did!  All 7 layouts were CTMH papers too!!  The next 3 layouts I created this month were using Blossom papers.  I will feature the Blossom paper pack in June and share those layouts then.
