5:00 pm iNSD with Emily Pitts!

Hello dear SCT friends, Emily here! Are you enjoying the festivities of the day? Are you getting a lot of scrapping done? If you're just joining us now, be sure to start at the beginning of today's festivities here!

One of my favorite parts of each new issue of the Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine is the Inspiration Gallery. I find so much inspiration from both long-time friends and new-to-me scrapbookers. The Spring issue was no exception, I found a great two page spread called, "Grow," by Leigh Odynski. I used to do two page spreads a lot, but in the past few years, I've really moved away from them because I don't take as many photos. But this layout made me WANT to do a two-pager. The design was amazing– graphic, but with lots of texture. The balance between the pages was perfect, and I knew I had the perfect series of pictures to test out the design. 


I pretty much copied Leigh's spread, element for element. I made my own tags because A: I didn't have all the matching ones, and B: I'd made a layout for the winter issue with tags and it was enjoyable to revisit tags. If you've never made your own tags, I challenge you to add one today to your creating! I loved the texture that her bows and small little bits added, I feel like they made the design work. I even took inspiration from Leigh's title! Totally different season, but similar word. 


I'm so happy with how her inspiration got these pictures scrapped, they'd probably still be sitting on my phone had I not had this opportunity to share the amazing talent our readers share with us in every issue! Enjoy the rest of your weekend, I hope you get a lot done!" ~ Emily

Your challenge: Create a layout with tags! At least 6! Share your 5:00 pm challenge with us three ways: by email at ideas@scrapbookandcards.com, by uploading it to our Facebook page or tag us on Instagram @sctmagazine by May 15th!

  210. Amber McCuaig May 9, 2016 at 11:34 pm

    One of my favourite “techniques” is to use a layout by a fellow scrapbooker to inspire my own. I am currently working on a large project that means A LOT of 12×12 layouts, and I just don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have others’ layouts to help me out! I love what Emily did using Leigh’s layout! Thanks so much for the chance to win the fun prizes from SCT and Paper Smooches 🙂

  211. stampnk May 10, 2016 at 3:13 am
