Amanda you are the 8th link below and our winner because "sqinchie", a made-up word I used in this layout, has 8 letters in it! Email your addy to firstname.lastname@example.org and Tattered Angles will send you the goooods. And they are gooooods! I love Glimmer Mist!
This new purchase of Christine's sparked the memory of a particular beloved photo she was saving. Christine mimicked the title work & color scheme exactly and positioned the photo right under the largest word: love. This is beautiful and striking interpretation from a T-shirt!
The weaving vines over the window pane inspired Suzanne use of ribbon through her daughters 6 sweet photos. The small berries are represented in the random buttons. She used the neutral tones of the wood but backed the photos onto bright yellow paper for a 'pop'.
These dishes were a birthday treat for herself. She bought them because she loved the pattern so much and by doodling the same florals on paper it makes a cool detail that I love too!
The colors, patchwork pattern and textile nature of this quilt inspired Jaime's 'goofy' layout. She used the patchwork pattern in a small dose which is often all you need to achieve the design you're after. And Jaime did it beatifully here.
Donna is in a southwestern state and an earthy girl at heart. I've always noticed those details in her home and here is a prime example. She used the ribbed textures, bold colors and western patterns to make this introspective layout about herself as the middle child.
When I saw this cool picture of her vintage fan I couldn't image the amazing translation Vicki could spin out of it. The colors, patterns and placement of elements make this circle Page Frame layout as interesting and demour as her vintage-looking collection in the photo.
These iron hangings hang high on our bedroom wall and are the beginnings of a collection. They are what I look twice a day, morning and night and I love the asymmetry of where they hang. The Hambly transparencies were an easy translation for the iron but the colors needed to be lighten and I used a blue background instead.
This vase and stars sit at our front door and everytime I see them they seem to be flying out like butterflies. The glitter and natural colors inspired me to do this page of my busybee daughter doing a puzzle on the couch.
This couldn't get any cuter! The ribbon tied frames on the wall are lovely and when Jaime added the same idea to her page it's a totally new use of ribbon than we normally see. The things we may not think of while sitting a our scrap tables can turn out be genius ideas!
Ideas are born in unusual places. Jill was busy in her house when this laundry basket caught her eye. Behind the white grid openings peeks another bag revealing a black pattern. Her grid design is enhanced in the same way; by adding small surprising photos, unexpected rubons, interesting patterns and her personal journaling of 11 lessons learned after 11 years of marriage.
The classic tone-on-tone stripe pattern in Delaney's beautiful piece of furniture inspired her 'Class of '01' layout. She layered strips of similar papers in muted sage colors to reflect the same elegance she loves in her chair. It is a perfect use of design for this meaningful layout about wearing her Honors sash.
Lana's beaded bracelet is a new fave of hers. And since the warmer weather has arrived she's been living in these shorts and white tank. She machine sewed stripes on the tan paper to reflect the same ribbed texture. The round beads were translated into the pop of teal color found in the die cut clouds under the title.
Amie mimicked her table's ornately painted detail by creating a handmade border. Her daughter's beautiful layout is as sophisticated and eye catching as the piece of furniture is in her home. This set shows how easy it is to recreate what your decor style is on a page.
Her kitchen proudly displays these framed spices and how perfect a page topic is it that her sweet daughter is snacking on yummies? The grid pattern was Cindy's jump start for this page design, such a cute way to include 6 small photos. Wouldn't this make a great sketch!?
She used eclectic elements against a stark but warm background just as she has in her office bookcase. Cat's interesting self portrait contrasts in black. More warm browns & yellows are picked up in the details. And the topic of interest is even more relevent, she says she "IS NOT wrinkle free". Now her antique inspirations have an even deeper meaning.
And last but ceeerrrtainly not least are Christine's two layouts. Both are inspired from - you guessed it - a bottle of shampoo! The theme, logo, title and subtitle all were elements she beautifully translated into pages about her children and the raising of them. The second one, "wash rinse & repeat" is a clever title that inspires me to look twice at any product labels for cute sayings and witty titles.
