Okay, I am finally back to share a little of the fun from my scrapbook retreat a few weekends ago. We tackled a few challenges this time, one of which was to use the same template. Our template came from this layout from Rhea at ReAsonand this sketch from the Scrapbook Steals blog.
The basic idea is a sunburst pattern with lots of paper strips, a great way to use scraps or 6×6 pads. I started with a plain white 12×12 sheet (the kind that come in albums when you buy them, no wasted paper here). I drew the spaces for the photo, mat, and then drew each sunburst. Just like Rhea, I cut and numbered each one. All four of us were then able to use those pieces to make our patterned papers fit just right.
Here are all four takes on the idea:
I think we all enjoyed seeing just how different the layouts could be; Shar, Donna and I went a little more distressed and Brande’s is cleaner. Brande left a border around each paper strip, the rest of use chose not to, Shar embellished more and Donna kept is simple. All great layouts that started the same way.

I don’t have supply lists for the other layouts, but I have a feeling Shar’s is mainly Bo Bunny, Brande’s is Queen and Company and Donna’s is K&Company. Ladies, please correct me in the comments if I am wrong! 🙂 (Also, I got the best photos I could using just my phone, I couldn’t bring everyone’s layouts home!)
Awesome idea! Beautiful layouts ladies!
Wow, these layouts are so nice and bright! Love them all!
Great job ladies! Cathy and Corina were my inspiration. Looking forward to more retreat layouts on your blog!
How could I forget those? Check them out here and here.
The Material List were right Cheryl! They look awesome, we need to adopt that as a tradition at the retreats! So FUN!
