Most of my papercrafting is inspired by others... I "scraplift" an idea here or an idea there... but this time I decided to pretty much duplicate a layout from Creating Keepsakes magazine that was created by Elizabeth Karchner. (She's brilliant-- check out her blog to see more of her creations!)
The main difference? Elizabeth made her layout mostly by traditional paper scrapping. I did a majority of my layout by creating it digitally in Memory Mixer. Here's a photo of the digital page alone:
Then I added some fun traditional embellishments (Bazzill brads and cardstock, pattern paper scraps, pop dots). Those really made the page come alive with texture, color and style. Here's the final product:
It was fun to try and make a digital layout look so much like a traditionally created page. Would you have known it's a Memory Mixers page?
