Hi everyone! Emily here with today's Tuesday inspiration piece. Every once in awhile something jumps out at me on Pinterest and screams, "HEY! Look at me!! I would make a good layout!" This particular piece, a book cover, did just that! Its fun colors, vertical lines, and staggered title would work really well in scrapbook form!

First up this week is the fabulous Laura, who used the inspiration to make an adorable card. Here's what she has to say about her creation, "I loved the inspiration image so very much! At first I was going to do a very literal translation of it, but as I started creating it ended up quite different. I loved the different height strips with the words on top and was inspired to do something similar with label stickers cut to different heights, and added chipboard hearts above them instead of words. So for me the inspiration image was a great jumping off point to make a fun and simple card."
Laura is one of my all time favorite card makers, and I love how she can take something so simple as a blank label and make it look so cute and creative!!
Like Laura, I had originally planned on creating a layout that was nearly identical to the inspiration piece. I was hoping to mirror the title and the strips of color, however after I began my layout, it took a bit of a different turn. I still used the vertical lines that are so prominently featured in the book cover, however I ended up ditching the title. I made one of my lines into a giant "1" in honor of my son's birthday and added a white boarder around the lines as an attempt to keep it from getting too busy!
This layout includes paper from a few different October Afternoon lines. I love how easy it is to mix and match between them!
If you were as inspired by this book cover inspiration piece as Laura and I were, we would love for you to play along!
