Coffee And Scraplifting! Chat At 9Am Mt Today! Winner has been chosen!
Posted 07 November 2009 - 05:33 AM
Join Angela (angelaNussbaum) and me (Becca) this morning at 9am MT for a Coffee Break Scraplift Chat! Let's start off Digital Scrapbooking Day right!
So, what is scraplifting?
Scraplifting is when you use a specific layout to inspire you. You can follow the entire layout or you can take one thing (like the text, or positioning of flowers) and lift that.
Is scraplifting bad?
No! BUT you must remember to give the other layout or designer credit. The best way to do that here at Scrap Girls is to add a link to their layout in the area where you list your products used, and to say who they are.
Today's challenge is a little different than what we usually do. We're not going to give you a specific person to scraplift. This time, in honor of DSD, we want you to find layouts that are very "digital" in design to scraplift. They can be a SG Team Member's or not.
Here are just a few SG Team examples to explain what I mean...
Java Affair by ChristyVW
You Are Colorful by ChristyVW
Proverbs 3 by J9Buckles
Follow Your Heart by J9Buckles
What is a mother? by ericahite
Such A Boy by satippetts
The Pout by scrappingjo
Leave a Trail by HisThao
Journey by KellyChron

She 'lifted Jo's "The Pout" layout.
And here's mine -- Autumn
I 'lifted Janine's "Follow Your Heart" layout.

This is not as "digi" as some of the others, but I did do some blending and OOB. I was inspired by Janine's Proverbs 3 - but I used it as sort of a prayer for my son and his SO.
