Can you feel that? There’s a slight chill in the air, reminding us that fall is right around the corner. With the changing seasons, we thought we’d change up this month’s “CK & Me” a bit. Rather than finding three incredible pages and the scrapbook layouts that inspired those pages, you’ll see two incredible pages that were each inspired by a single layout found in the September 2010 issue of Creating Keepsakes. I’m doing this to show you just how inspiring and versatile a single design can be. And the single (and stunning) design I’ll be talking about this month is this one from Jamie Harper.
Our first featured “CK & Me” guest is Telah Wrenn. She loved how Jamie lined up her 4″ x 6″ photos and rounded their corners. Didn’t Telah do an impressive job of taking Jamie’s lead and coming up with something completely different and completely fabulous? Nicely done, Telah!
Summer Mobley also found an aspect of Jamie’s photos unique. If you look closely at her layout, there are tiny holes poked in the corners of her images that act as unique photo corners. Summer adored this idea and incorporated it into her beautiful scrapbook page. She didn’t have a paper piercer, so she used an ice pick, creating slightly larger holes. Way to be resourceful, Summer!
As our talented “CK & Me” guests’ pages illustrate, you can take a page design and make it your own in so many ways. Have fun finding multiple inspiration points in your favorite layouts, and see just how many unique pages you can create from a single design.
Hey, while you’re at it, why not send one (or more) of those pages our way for possible inclusion in a future “CK & Me” spotlight. Not only will you receive a free Creating Keepsakes special issue, but you’ll also receive our brand new “CK & Me” button (shown here) to use on your blog, gallery, etc. Send your pages to firstname.lastname@example.org with “CK & Me” in the subject line. Please include an image of your page and the issue and page number of the layout it was inspired by.
But wait, before you get to creating and submitting, we hope you’ll take a minute to congratulate this month’s featured scrapbookers on a job well done.
