Inspired by Legos

>> Monday, September 26, 2011

A few weeks ago, I took my son and his cousin to the new Lego Store in our city. I was completely amazed at all the displays and inspiration I found in the store. I also came to the conclusion that the Lego Store really is just the Apple Store for kids. :)

There was one display behind the register that I found completely inspiring-- so much so, that I used it in this layout, AND as the design inspiration.

Lily Bee Supplies Used:
Memorandum 6x6 Tiny Tablet
Memorandum Index Journaling Cards
Memorandum Mixed Cardstock Stickers
Memorandum Papers- Whiteboard, Boardroom, 9 to 5, Timeclock

Here's a closer look at the photo/display I used as my inspiration:

To create this layout, I trimmed 20 2 inch squares from kraft paper, and used a 1 1/4" circle punch to punch the center of the square. I backed each square with assorted papers from the Memorandum 6x6 Tiny Tablet.

I added various layers with different papers from the Memorandum collection to complete the layout.

I decided to use this design and create a card. I used a hole-punch and circle punch and punched random holes in a piece of kraft cardstock, and backed the cardstock with paper from the Memorandum collection. It's not as "orderly" as the design in the layout, but it's the same basic concept.

Here's a closer look at the card.

I hope this inspires you to consider unexpected sources for design inspiration! Thanks for stopping by today!
