Thanks for dropping in here today.
Do you remember the card below?
Well, I used it as "inspiration" for my latest LO. I "scraplifted" this card, to create the layout I wish to share with you all here today. Sometimes it can be a good idea to look trough own works too to get inspiration and ideas for new works, and here is a sample on how a card can inspire to a layout.
Above: On this layout I used approximately the same set-up as on the card and the same colors, even some of the same products as one of the pattern papers. I let the card inspire me with the large circle design on center, but since the layout is square and larger, it allowed me to add another circle design and more details on.
Above: This image shows my layout in progress, photo taken with my iPhone to share on Instagram. To frame in the photo of my girl I used a Sizzix Thinlits die ""Frame, Ornate Oval". I draw on the edges of the die with a black pen and used Chalk Edgers "Old Road". I used a Shabby Chic Metal Treasure "Baroque" frame as the 2nd circle design on the layout, combined with an black old overlay design.
Please make sure you drop by Sizzix's blog for loads of inspiration here.

And here are some close-ups of details on the layout:
Above: The large "circle" on the layout is where I placed the photo of my happy daughter, framed with Sizzix die Thinlits, layers of old overlays and Prima flowers. I cut out her profile to make it look like she is leaning out trough the frame.
Above: The 2nd "circle" design on the layout, the smallest one, are made by using Shabby Chic Metal Treasures "Baroque" frame and an old black overlay, together with a circle Prima stamp (under heart), a Shabby Chic Resin Treasures heart from the "Angel Wings", with dripping turquoise paint underneath. On top of the heart I added small "Clock Hands" together with a "Clock Parts" from the Junkyard Findings collection.
Above: The butterfly is made of traditional die cut butterfly, where I cut of the body part to only use the wings. Then I used a pen head from Tim Holtz, and added a little "head" using "Clock Parts" and "Clock Hands" from my Junkyard Findings at Prima. Behind the pen head I draw some "drops" as a little "tail".
Above: Here you can see the different layers and use of different products. On the bottom/background I used 3 different pattern papers from Prima. The birdcage is a Shabby Chic Metal Treasures birdcage. There are layers of old overlays, Prima clear tapes and flowers, fussy cuts, Sizzix die cuts, paints, chalk inks and so on.
This was all I had for today, but hope you liked my share.
Wish you all a wonderful and creative week further.
