Scraplifting, old school style

Actually when I first started scrapbooking I didn’t scraplift (copy the design or elements of an existing layout) at all. I just did whatever. Now that I have my own loose style I find it easier to look at other people’s work for inspiration and not loose my style in theirs. I pulled out my old Ali book A Designer’s Eye for Scrapbooking with Patterned Paper and picked out a couple of layouts to lift to get myself into the groove the other day.

This is a pretty straight lift from page 77. Photo turns, hello, totally forgot about these little lovelies.
Copy-3
I barely squeaked out the title with some fabric I had in my to be punched quickutz stash (I use a ruler box to store strips of cardstock, paper and fabric that are 1.5″โ€”to fit my little xyron. Hope that makes sense, if not tell me, this helps me utilize my Squeeze so much more). I need to bring more fabric up and incorporate it into my layouts, I love the texture.
Copy-1
This is a looser lift from page 94. Super simple, but wanted to show lots of the girls playing together. I know they are going to love looking back at layouts like this when they are older.

I’m trying out a new neutral and so far I love it. I was in a big white/kraft kick but I like this slightly speckled off white.
Copy-6
Also glimmer mist, yum!
Copy-7
More mists. The photo of the layout was too wonky to try and crop it, sorry. Pretty impressive that my nails are painted though! Ha!
Copy-8
Fabrips from Studio Calico, love them!
Copy-4
Last one from today, and my favorite! I don’t know when I bought the Zing powder, but I hadn’t used it before, and it is so awesome. I forgot how much I love the look of embossing.
Copy-5
And of course brads.
Are you scrapping this weekend? I have some more layouts to share, but after I took photos I realized they needed something. Good thing I just got my sewing machine back from the shop!
Also based on my last bunch of layouts I don’t think I will ever use up my patterned paper stash, yikes!

  1. I googled it and didnt seem to find it on a few sites including the JustRite one…I really LOVE the slash marks dividing up the date. Oh well, thanks for letting me know.
    Hope youre having a good weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I love the last layout with the embossing and all the flowers! Just beautiful. I so miss my scrapbooking. I really must get myself back in the habit of making some time for that.
