Scrapbook Sunday: May Messy Box

Scrapbook Sunday with the May Messy Box! See how gorgeous these patterns and embellishments are in this months box. See the full post over at www.aBeautifulMess.comI'm a color lover, but I find myself gravitating to very specific color groupings. I'm all about most shades of pink, bold yellows, and subtle blues. Throw in lots of black and white and I'm a happy gal! This month's Messy Box was especially easy for me to fall in love with, and I can see myself using up every last scrap of patterned paper! 

ScrapbookSunday2I printed off some of my favorite Instagram photos after deciding which few would work well together with these papers and this theme, and my first page was finished in record time. I think I was done in ten minutes! These patterns were so easy to mix and match and the bold fonts worked really well together. All I did was add in a few stickers and stamps, wrote on some photos, and I was done!

ScrapbookSunday- 2ScrapbookSunday5Scrapbooksunday4The large card at the bottom of this page above is one of my new favorite ways to add interest to a layout. Layering papers cut at different angles is the perfect way to add more pattern when a page feels too simple. It leaves plenty of room for journaling, and you could easily switch out the largest piece and replace it with a photo.
