Hi All! Lisa Warren here. I hope you’ve been enjoying all the Valentine’s Day inspiration the team has been sharing this week. That reminds me…better go make my hubby a card…
Do you ever see a layout and are instantly inspired by it? I do. All the time. There are so many talented scrapbookers in the world, and sometimes when you see a layout, you just have to create straight away! Recently I was checking out all the craft magazines at the newsagency, and I was instantly drawn to the cover of Scrapbook Trends. This layout by Susan Weinroth is just divine!
I love how the photo is off centre, that she’s stuck to one colour for lettering, patterned paper and embellishments, and also all the little embellishments contained in the random circles. So much fun…I wanted to have a go myself! I challenged the team to have a go too, and here’s what we came up with…
Here’s my take…I’ve used patterned paper from the “So Tweet” collection as well as white Pebbles chips. I love how Susan spread her title over two lines, and as it happened, her title fit my layout perfectly. I wanted to add the blue from Susan’s layout, but give it a bit more punch of colour. The end result is a fun, girlie layout that my daughter loves!
Mirielle Divjak created this gorgeous layout! She has swapped out the punched circles for stitched ones, and the single photo for 6 sequence shots. I love the primary colours she’s used, and the yellow Pebbles chips coordinate perfectly…such a fun boy layout!
Marielle LeBlanc created this fun layout with the Lil’ Buddy collection, using a combination of Pebbles candy dots, chipboard, punched circles and stickers to create the circular element at the top of her layout. Love those little robots! Marielle has also flipped the layout to create a mirror image of the original by Susan.
Sophia Allison has put another twist on the cover lift. Instead of lifting just the layout, she has lifted the whole cover! Sophia has placed her title at the top of her layout where the magazine’s masthead appears, and added journaling strips in place of the magazine contents. What a great idea!
There you have it. Four layouts lifted from the cover of a magazine, all different in style. That’s the great thing about taking inspiration from layouts…they’re a great jumping off point for you to make a layout your own. Thanks for dropping by!
