My family made a goal of seeing all 50 states before my kids graduate from highschool; so I imagine this layout as a title page in a themed 12x12 scrapbook that I will at some point put together.
Mostly, this was a playful page for me. I made the chevron stripes by punching patterned paper with a square punch and then cutting them on the diagonal to create triangles and then arranging them and pasting them down into the chevron stripes. I saw this idea on Pintrest as a pattern for a vintage quilt. It is fairly self explanatory - just start playing with those triangles and you'll see - or leave a comment and I'll do another post with a step by step.
So how is this connected to 7 Gypsies? It is not one of the most inspired by 7 Gypsies layouts - it was actually one of the last pages I made in this series, but one that I had the most fun with so I wanted to post it first. But looking back the colors are in the theme of 7 Gypsies - especially the black, taupe/neutral, and white/creme; and there is some hot pink in the new Trusseau collection by 7 Gypsies and I've seen lots of polka dots in the 7 Gypsies lines over the years, so I think it qualifies as 7 Gypsies inspired. And the typewriter number stickers - which I picked up at the scrapbooking yardsale recently - look very 7 Gypsies to me.
