A little more inspiration by Kriszti

Hello everyone!
Kriszti here.

I am on the rock team (you can see my rock song interpretation here on 1st July reveal) but I was really inspired by the pop song too, so this is a project inspired by Lukas Graham - "7 Years"
I love this song.




I was inspired by the song title, Seven.
When I looked back through my photos , this particular photo of my daughter  on she seventh birthday party. , imperfect , really caught my eye and made me smile!

To begin, I used the polka dots background paper as my base
I put it vertically on a white strip of paper but for this layout, I picked out all the pink.:) 
On the strip put the two photos and kept the embellishment minimal.





 Just how I love it, this girly layout!


 I hope that I have inspired you!
I can't wait to see what you create based upon the rock and pop songs this month.

July video tutorial

Hello everybody, Khristina here with a new video tutorial for you.

I am on the rock team (you can see my rock song interpretation here on 1st July reveal) but I was really inspired by the pop song too, so this is a project inspired by Lukas Graham - "7 Years"

Here it is the process video: Once I Was Seven Years Old 

I wanted to create a fun and colorful layout for my son who is seven years old right now. I worked with patterned paper from the Scoot collection by Deena Rutter for Echo Park and the added bonus was almost everything I used came out of my scraps from other projects! 






Thanks for popping by today, I hope that I have inspired you! I can't wait to see what you create based upon the rock and pop songs this month.

This is my Layout for the song "All I need"! In these strenuous days he's close to me and helps me whenever I need it :) I used frames, a beautiful summer cardstock and a selphie

Elisabetta


I am very happy to be here and have the chance to inspire you with my works! As first project as DT I made a sort of caviardage work (It consist on outlined from a book page only the words you choose,to form a poem, a sentence... whatever your fantasy creates! you can paint on the page, use colors to outline words, decorate it... it is really a funny tecnique! Here you can find some examples). It isn't a real caviardage since it isn't on a book page: I printed song lyrics, glued them on a canvas, decorated it and selected some words that inspired me!

Maya


Hi there, I'm super happy to share with you my first DT reveal here. For July's challenge, I created a layout inspired by the song title "All I Need". Even though time goes on and things change, family is always in my heart, and I know for a fact they are all I need. By the way, I also have a step by step tutorial in my blog. Hope you love my layout and find some inspiration here at SIWAS. ☺


The Pop Girls


The song, 7 years by Lucas Graham, made me think of my children when they were younger and now that they have grown (the youngest is 18), I can say what a blessing it is to be their mom. The captions state 'my inspiration' and 'the future.' The paper is American Crafts/PLAY jump rope, various brads and paper flowers, finishing off with embellishments from Close To My Heart. I especially love the shiny, metallic copper color! {cellphone...mediocre pic quality, sorry}


I love the song 7 Years and one of the lines in the song is when I was 11 years old my daddy told me...  This song could be about anyone as it is all about age and looking back and looking forward.  I used papers and ink from Close To My Heart - Happy Times.

Lauren


I love this song, and I knew right away that I would scrap this photo is from my 30th birthday.  I threw myself a party with a "Breakfast at Tiffany's" theme.  All my friends and I wore little black dresses and pearls.

July guest designer

It is time to meet our fabulous Guest Designer of the month!

Please help us welcome Asa!

My name is Åsa and I live in the middle of Sweden with my hubby and our 14 years old son and 9 years old twin daughters and a dog. I will soon be 40 years old. I work as a teacher since 17 years.
Scrapbooking and cardmaking are my addictions. Lovely ones. It all started in 2007 when I was carrying my twins and couldn´t go to work. I had to have something to do. Since then I can´t stop. Mostly I do layouts. I don´t know if I have a style, I try to vary me. But I love CAS! I use a white cardstock as a background almost everytime. Pink, black and white are my favourite colours! 
My card making style is just CAS. Very CAS! 
I follow a lot of blogs of talented people around the world and I get my inspiration there from. 
I´m so glad that I got this opportunity to be a guest designer at wonderful Scrap it with a song. Thank you!
You can visit my blog to say hi if you want to, that would make me so happy: 

Asa made a wonderful layout inspired by our July pop song - discover both songs and our challenges of the month here.


How I was inpired by the song:

"I knew right away that I would pick "7 years". Love that song! I used a line from the song as my title but I changed the lyrics a little bit to 40 instead of 30."

Thanks for joining us Asa, we love so much your project!

If you would love to be our Guest Designer in the future, all you have to do is to play along with our SIWAS challenges: just link your entry in the linky tool on top right of the blog!
The DT will choose their favorite project and the winner will be our GD for a future challenge. Thank you for your continued support and good luck.
