Welcome to this week’s Spin-A-Lift, where we’ll be looking at an amazing layout and then putting our own twist on it. This week we’re going to be spinning a layout by the fabulous Robin Carlton!
On top of being an amazing designer and ‘boss’ here at Sweet Shoppe Designs, Robin is also a very talented scrapbooker. She has a distinctive style, combining great photography and fun colours to create some amazing pages – some of which we have seen in a variety of magazines!
After spending ages in Robin’s wonderful gallery, I chose Shine Bright. I love this one for so many reasons. She chose such great colours to accent that gorgeous picture of her son and this layout is so perfectly balanced. There are just enough elements to provide interest and leave the layout feeling uncluttered. The splotches of ink are the perfect touch of grunge to make this a great boy page!
I flipped her design 90 degrees in my layout and used Eve Recinella’s funky Metropolitan papers, I also used her Crumpled Alpha’s. I went looking to Lauren Grier for my elements and got them from her I Heart You, Flutterflies, and It’s All About You sets.
We’d all love to see your take on this week’s Spin-A-Lift, so why don’t you take a meander through Robin’s fabulous gallery and give one of her layouts a spin. Please link us up so we can all take a look and leave you some love! Don’t forget to check out all the fabulous challenges at the Sweet Shoppe forums – they’ll definitely keep you inspired for the week!
