Today I wanted to show you one of my NSD layouts a bit more in detail. For two main reasons: it is my first ever A4 layout and secondly, it is a scraplift of a newly discovered talented scrapper.
This is my layout:
And this is the layout that I scraplifted:
So this was my first time doing a layout on A4 format. This format is actually very popular. In America they call it 8.5×11 (which is very similar to A4 size, and because A4 is readily available here, British scrappers will normally just use A4 rather than buying the other size from America).
I must admit that I found the format a bit odd. I am so used to square! Even when I was scrapbooking on 8×8, it was smaller but still square. The verticality of it worked with this layout though, but maybe only because I was scraplifting an already made layout and I wasn’t trying to come up with my own original work!
The designer that I copied is Victoria Marie. She has been around for a while but I have only just discovered her. I love her style, as it varies and it can be quite simple and striking or busier with lots of layers, etc. I liked this layout above that I chose to scraplift because it would force me to use tons of embellishments that I have been collecting over time, that I rarely even look at because they are just not my style. However I loved how she made them work on her layout. And I am quite happy how my layout turned out!
A couple more closeups:
I entered this layout on the NSD challenge about long journalling, and I tell the story of our first encounter with our first cat, Tommy. He is greatly missed and I wanted to make a layout about him.
I hope you have enjoyed this layout, and thanks for looking!
