Pass The Page - Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to "Pass the Page" blog hop! When Julie initially posted this on her blog I knew I wanted to be a part of it.... the idea is that Julie started with a layout she created and sent a photo of it off to the next person and then they were to take whatever inspiration they got and then create their own layout. A photo was then sent to the next person on the list and so on. Each of us have only seen the layout of the person before us... that is until today!

As soon as I received this photo of Alison's beautiful "Winter Sun" layout, I got to work on my own page.
I loved the linear design of this layout and that is where I drew my inspiration. I used lots of straight line layers along with the torn edge at the bottom for a bit of variety. I detected Alison's use of a punch to create the edge on the paper, so I pulled out my notebook punch and did the edge on top. I also noticed how her photo shows us the beautiful colors of the leaves and she carry's that through with her embellishments. I in turn took the heart from the machiatto and used a heart punch for my embellishment. I also kept with the block style lettering she uses for her title.

Most of the papers I used were from a Scarlet Lime kit, I also used Basic Grey and October Afternoon papers. The alphabet is Basic Grey and the journaling card is something I made. If you are interested, you can download my vintage tags.

Thank you so much for stopping by and now you can move on to Jemma's blog to see what inspired her from my layout. There is a prize for those who comment on each blog. If you would like to start at the beginning please visit Julie over at Letting the Days Roll By. 

I cannot wait to visit everyone's blog to see each transformation and interpretation!

  2. Ooo... another total change of colour scheme - but you have also kept the same basic structure as the inspiration page. I love the punched edge on the top layer of paper, also the torn piece with the two ladies peeping out at the viewer. The little heart embellishment is such a cool idea.

    Thanks for the little present of the downloadable journalling tags - how nice they are (and how nice of you)!
