This week Scrapbooking & Cards Today is celebrating it's 6th birthday. A group of us decided to celebrate with a layout chain. The idea is one designer creates a layout and sends it to the next designer on the list and they create a layout inspired/based off the layout and then the new layout is passed on to the next designer on the list and so on. Our layout tag chain went a little something like this .... Emily Pitts to Vicki Boutin to Kathy Thompson to me to Davinie Fiero to Lynn Ghahary.
I received this layout from Kathy ...
... here is the layout i created inspired by Kathy's layout.
(Supplies Used: Cardstock Bazzill, Patterned Paper Studio Calico, buttons/chipboard accents from My Minds Eye, DieCut Date from Elle's Studio, Tabs from American Crafts, Sticker from My Minds Eye, Chipboard Button from Studio Calico, Corrugated Heart Jillibean Soup. May Arts ribbon, Basic Grey Brad, Silhouette Cutting System/Image, Stampin Up Punch and font Traveling Typewriter downloaded from the internet)
I used Kathy's layout as if it was a sketch: photo flanking the left, layered patterned papers with rounded corners on a cardstock base. In the end I don't think our layouts look anything a like but when you break down my layout the similarities seem so clear.
To follow the chain check out how Davinie was inspired by my layout.
