8 is enough!

i came across this "8 is enough" way of scrapbooking in ella publishing blog, it was quite sometime, and finally i managed to do this :) it is on how we actually can scrapbook at least 4 LOs with using 8 supplies :) (not including the cardstock, scissors, glue and other basic ones)   
i always busy picking this and that, here and there, when i scrapbook and will leave my room looks like there is a "crashed aeroplane" in it :) hehe.. actually, this is a term in bahasa indonesia when something is so messy: "kapal pecah!" (aka. direct translated as crashed aeroplane) 
it's true, the toughest part is the selection of those 8 supplies.

but on the other side, the limitation of supplies really can make me think out of the box, and do crative ways of using these supplies.
when choosing the supplies, i tried to pick those with same range of colors (well, in my opinion, all bright colors are in the same range).
i also tried to pick ones with variety of "patterns", 2 papers with strips designs (OA & LYB) and 1 elements from CC. lucky, i still have this set of alpha sticker from K&Co, as they have 2 colors. to add accents for my LOs, I chose sunflower glimmer mist.

here is the complete list of supplies I used (from left to rigt as shown in the picture):
- patterned paper: Studio Calico
- patterned paper: Little Yellow Bicycle 
- patterned paper: October Afternoon
- patterned paper: Pink Paislee
- patterned paper: CosmoCricket
- sticker: SassafrasLas
- letter sticker: K&Company
- glimmer mist: TA - Sunflower

and finally i made these 4 LOs :)
i love this pink paislee pp so much, the laces are so beautiful.. i used element from cosmo cricket pp as my title and my journaling base.

i used the banner sticker from SFL in this LO, as flags and as a separation line. the LYB pp is just so nice, love the colors so much, and as i want to keep the design, i used a big "block" of this pp for more 50% of this LO's area.  

overall, I love this "happy times LO" most, the one with most combination of supplies here & there.

i made 2 flowers from SFL sticker as embellishments. and spray a little bit here & there.

finally, I have to say that I must limit my supplies of scrapbooking as often as possible, and start to use my hoarded stashes :) 

thank you for dropping by. i really appreciate it! :) i really do :)
hopefully you can be inspired in some ways.. 

God bless you!
