It's day 4 and we are so very excited for today's event. It's a big one and quite possibly our favorite. Right up there with swimming and gymnastics and our winter scrapolympic skeleton race. We have two teams that are ready and raring to take part in the relay.
The goal for this event is to take the "baton" from your teammate and use it to create your own layout. Then pass it forward and see where the third teammate takes it. For all our competitors today, there is little more exciting than being inspired by one of your favorite scrapbookers. Let's get started.
Team One consists of Amy, Lisa, and Aliza. Here is there awesome relay.
Amy began with a goal to incorporate the journaling right into the title. Or the title right into the journaling. For her, it all started with the pink card and then went from there! Amy's beautiful layout is proof that you can totally use pink on a boy's layout.
This layout then went to Lisa. She writes, "As you can see I scaled down from Amy's great page. Whenever I do scraplift and/or use another page as inspiration I make them into a page that is me. So I can be super inspired by a page that is super busy with sewing and a lot of embellishments, but that is perhaps not my style." Such a great reminder that we can look beyond the details (or in them) to find things we can use.
Lisa's layout then went to Aliza who made hers. She says, "I loved the simplicity of Lisa's page, but I had a large photo and a small story that I wanted to use at the time. So, I simply swapped the elements while keeping the basic design the same; My journaling is a small square, while my photo runs the length of the page. I tried to include some bits of stamping on the edge, as Lisa did, but I am a big scaredy-cat when it comes to stamping. So, I went with washi tape and stickers instead. Using those embellishments also helped me spread my color scheme around the page."
What a successful swap of sides and elements. And what a terrific sets of layouts from Team One.
Next is Team Two, consisting of Jenny, Dee, and Marnie.
Dee took this layout and essentially turned it on its side. She mimicked the photo matting, and kept the strips for journaling. The difference in perspective makes it seem like a whole new "sketch."
Lastly, Marnie turned it again (not realizing that is where it began!) for the journaling, but maintained the horizontal photo. She also kept the journaling strips, and maintained Dee's 10 point journaling.
Team Two did a great as well. Much too close to call. We will determine it to be a tie, and we will cross the finish line holding hands like the marathoning German twin sisters. Oh, the Olympics warm our hearts. ♥
Will you join us in a relay? And if you need some teammates, we will gladly play along with you!
