Clarification On What Scrap Lifting Is
Posted 22 April 2005 - 12:35 PM
uestions have been asked about what Scrap Lifting is. This is a sensitive topic and I should have done a better job describing it to you. My apologies to you and to Ann.
Ann is a fabulous designer and I wouldn't want you guys to accidentally do anything with her work that is wrong or that would hurt her feelings. You see, it is wrong to do an exact duplicate of a layout without permission. That isn't scraplifting. That is just copying.
Scraplifting is taking inspiration from the layout and when you scraplift, you ALWAYS credit the original designer. Another thing about it, you should never submit a scraplifted layout to a magazine or anywhere else where you will receive credit or payment because you are not really doing your own work, see?
What I didn't know before I announced this contest is that Ann has had problems in the past with people ripping her layouts off (she is SO good) and then she would find them published in magazines. Can you imagine what a shock that would be????? To see your work published under somebody else's name and they were getting the credit for it???
So, please, respect Ann. She is a fabulous, fabulous designer. She IS inspirational. It's not a wonder that so many of you have purchased her products. They are simply beautiful! Use her layouts for inspiration in this scrap lift challenge but don't directly copy them.
Now, I'm also including a nice article below by Emma Bellish about this topic. She has written so well about it. It ought to help you understand the topic better.
As a note, the winner of this contest will be someone who has used Ann's layout to inspire them. If the layout makes Ann uncomfortable because it is a direct copy, then it will be disqualified.
So have fun with the contest. Be INSPIRED by one our the most inspirational scrappers I know.
Great article about Scraplifting
