You often hear how inspiration can be found everywhere- like from fashion, home and garden magazines, and even from the many styles and colors found at Target. Even though I‘ve tried, I've never been one to find inspiration in these types of places and always just rely on getting my ideas from other’s pages and blogs.
This all changed when I received, a few months ago, the May JCPenney catalog. Do you remember the huge catalog they used to have? It used to be all pictures and item numbers? Well, no longer! What I received in the mail was a streamlined smaller version full of great colors, great patterns and in particular great title ideas!! I always struggle with title ideas!
As I read the many captions, I was immediately inspired! I could see pages forming in my head based on these fun titles and slogans. I eagerly awaited the June catalog and I was not disappointed as it had just as many fun titles and ideas as the first! I can happily say, I finally have gotten the connection between outside influences and my scrapbook pages! Don’t just throw away your junk mail, especially your JCPenney catalog- take a look through it and get inspired! Here are a few layouts I have created that were inspired from the latest JCPenney's catalog!
