Inspired by Paper Scrapbooking?

image

I noticed a few month’s ago that several of my team members were posting layouts with, “Inspired by _______________, a paper layout” listed in the credits.  I loved the layouts and the very different looks that were being created! A few days later, I saw the below video from Laine and thought, “Amen!”  I think because I was a paper scrapper first, it’s easy for me to see the overlap, but understand that it might not be as easy for some.  There tends to be a similar divide among digital scrapbookers with “paper looking” layouts on one side and “fantasy” style on the other.  This is one of the things that we discuss a lot in this weeks Digi Show that will be out Thursday.

I think there are things we can take-away from every kind of memory keeping (digital scrapbooking, traditional scrapbooking, fantasy, blogging, Tweeting, Facebooking, etc.) and incorporate them into what we do!  Just take a look at the layouts below…I bet they will have you seeing paper scrapbooking as a great source for inspiration, if you don’t already!
