Scrapbooking design: Starting with supplies

When I design pages, I normally start with the photos or story, then go from there. Sometimes, though, I start with a product, usually something that's been sitting around for a while on my desk. Here's one such page.

I had a sheet of washi strips stickers from Studio Calico from one of my last kits, I think. I loved the colors on them--they reminded me of autumn--so I left them around, but I could never figure out how to use them. Then I printed some small, square photos from the Renaissance Fair and decided to use them on that page. Here's the page:

Thank you for visiting! What is your starting point with a page? Do you too start with photos most of the time, or do you ever start with products?
