We Party Layouts!!

My scrapper friend Kara came over a couple weeks ago, and for the 2nd time we worked on the "same" layout - implementing the same technique to create a layout we both looked at online! Here's the layout by Shannon Tidwell we tried to re-create as our own!

First up, is my friend's layout "We Party Rock" by Kara Nettnin! The pic she used are her two adorable boys at the lake a couple weeks ago!

We both just punched circles from card stock (instead of using chipboard) and covered with washi tape! Here, Kara used smaller circles spread out with a mix of washi tape - LOVE how it turned out!!

She used some foam thickers for the "We" part of the title, which really stood out against that yellow washi and other thickers from American Crafts to complete the title! Love the little washi flag and Amy Tangerine bit in there too!

Next up is my layout "Arthur Avenue Market" from our recent trip to NYC last month! We visited the "real Little Italy" in the Bronx at Arthur Avenue! It was so cool!

I decided to stick to just a few colors for the washi tape, but added some punched circles from some Studio Calico paper (last summer's Boardwalk kit) in there too for some more detail since I used larger circles.

I made my own little flag, using washi to cover a rectangle and grabbing a toothpick from the kitchen!

We just had the best time working on the same layout together! I like doing the same techniques at the same time so we can help each other out more and Kara likes how easy it was to pack her stuff to come over with a specific list of supplies. Our layouts came out so different too! Scrapping alone just isn't as fun anymore!
