Scrapbooking from the Inside Out... GIVE AWAY!!!

Hi, this is Nancy Doren, guest-blogging all the way from Colorado! I’m a lucky scrapper because I get to be on two amazing design teams: GCD Studios and Scrapbooking from the Inside Out. Sometimes these companies intersect and when they do, I’m in heaven!

Scrapbooking from the Inside Out is a kit club and online community with a unique focus: emotion-based kits. Each month we explore an emotion, and our kit materials are selected based on color, design and iconography that reflects an emotional theme. We offer an inspiration page each month complete with a music playlist, journaling prompts, quotes, photos and links that will guide you as you scrap about yourself and your deepest dreams and feelings. Scrapbooking from the Inside Out often packs its kits with GCD papers... they’re perfect for so many reasons!

GCD Studios papers are full of possibility. Most GCD Studios papers are design-based rather than thematic. This makes them perfect for scrapbooking emotions... you can choose a paper based on color, design, or icon without being limited by a specific theme. This month’s emotion at SFTIO is Yearning, so we selected several papers from the GCD line Debonair for our kits. The Debonair line evokes thoughts of travel and journeys, perfect for the idea of yearning. I used Debonair paper to decorate some envelopes (and cards to put in them) and loved the exotic flair it gave my project:



GCD Studios papers make amazing backgrounds. One of my favorite things about our papers is the reverse side, or the “B” side of the paper. The back side of GCD Studios papers features a coordinating color in a solid or small print, perfect for creating backgrounds. I used the reverse side of some Debonair paper to make a lattice-like background for my “Sunshine” page. I love how the paper evokes woven straw mats you might find on the beach:


GCD Studios papers come in an incredible variety. The range of colors and designs available in GCD papers is amazing! From muted pastels to bright primaries to sophisticated vintage to playful patterns, GCD Studios has it all. At Scrapbooking from the Inside Out, we love to have variety from month to month—no two kits are alike! And GCD always has the perfect paper for whatever emotion we’re expressing. Their papers mix beautifully with other paper you may have in your stash. On this layout I mixed and matched some paper from Debonair with other lines:

So next time you’re scrapping, consider scrapping about yourself, and when you do, reach for some GCD Studios papers!

And one lucky winner will receive the entire Yearning kit from scrapbooking from the Inside Out! Just leave a comment and we’ll draw a winner and announce it on Friday.
