Snap 4 - Starting Points

After completing several layouts at my friend Amy's crop earlier this month, I decided to use some of the miscellaneous supplies I had with me to create starting points. Do you remember Shimelle's starting points? The idea is to create the background (or starting point) of a layout before choosing the story or photos for the completed layout. I used the first three ideas (here, here and here) that came up when I searched Shimelle's blog for starting points.


Here's a closer look at each one.




I'm hoping to find time this week to turn these starting points into completed layouts!

Joining in today with Helena's meme - Snap - a visually linked set of between 2 and 4 images.  The set can be based on colour or shape or subject.

I love the idea of starting points and these are lovely lively starts

Sian said...

Ha! They do look like quilts! But they'll make very nice pages

I really like the red pieces! And they would all make lovely mini-quilts!

Love the yellow one. Your post reminds me that I have an album of pre-made pages from my scrapbooking biz days that I need to review again. I really want to start using them up!

Brilliant. I like the colours in the first layout. I have a post just waiting to be shared about creating layouts before.

I like the looks of these a lot! I was never very good at using premade pages, but I know your's will be great!

These are pretty. I do remember Shimelle's starting points and just a couple of months ago, I used up some scraps and made two bases for layouts. Alas, I still have not gone back to either one to complete them. Thanks for the nudge to pull those back out.

I used to love Shimelle's starting points. Can't wait to see how your pages turn out. I may do some of these next time I scrap!

I love premade layouts!
I'm going to a play day on Tuesday. Maybe I'll make some.
