Remix Layout Week 1

Hey Everyone! On Monday I introduced you to this card...

 and today I'd like to show you the scrapbook page I created that was inspired by the card! There are a lot of ways to remix a card in to a scrapbook page. You can use the same color scheme, layout, stamps or theme. For my first remix I pretty much used it all!

I started by pulling out the same paper I used for the card. I added a few more coordinating patterned papers and I was ready to scrapbook! For this particular layout I choose the papers first, then dug for pictures to match. Since I have A LOT of scrapbooking to catch up on I had plenty of pictures to choose from.

After I found the pictures of my son's first trip to the zoo I knew I wanted to use Nichole's FREE download on this post. I trimmed down the lion about a 1/4 inch smaller than the template and used an impression die to add some texture to his mane. I also tied in the wood grain heart from my card and the same patterned paper.

At the top of the layout I added some details about our trip and stamped a heart from Night, Night Moon. Notice I also used the same green polka dot mat as my card.

Here are some more details about our trip. I love the stamping detail here and there throughout the card. Gotta love using what I already have to enhance the layout.

Finally I cut the title using my Silhouette. I'm learning as I go with the Silhouette but I'm happy with this title and the color it adds to the page.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my first remix!
