Finding inspiration online (i.e. Pinterest, Facebook, online scrappy galleries/blogs) are a great place to start and get those creative juices flowing. As is scraplifting one of your favourite designers. You can choose to create something that is very similar or just pick a few elements that you'd like to incorporate into your work.
(*Either way ... always remember to give credit due where necessary. :) )
Let's take a look at what a couple of our designers have to share with us today.
Scraplift a Journal
I love making altered projects and decided to scraplift one of Cari Locken's projects. I just love the altered journal that she made using Imaginisce's Black Ice collection.
Here's my take on her journal. I used the new Perfect Vacation collection. A travel journal is a great idea for summer road trips. You can keep the kiddos busy with a fun activity too. They can write about the journey and have a place to collect their souvenirs.
Here's a close up of the cover. I even added a mini pencil for the kiddos.
I added glassine bags to some of the pages. You can insert more travel papers from the Perfect Vacation collection into the bags along with souvenirs.
Imaginisce: patterned paper (Perfect Vacation)
Imaginisce: My Baby Gems
Stash: Ribbon, twine, glassine bag, mini pencil
This week we were asked to scraplift another design team member work. So as you can imagine the hardest part is picking who and what you are going to lift. I finally decided on a beautiful LO created by Monique Liedtke using the super cute Bushel of fall Collection.
Here is her layout:
For my layout I stuck pretty close to Monique's layout after all its stunning! I used the oh so sweet My Baby Collection and featured one for the first pictures ever taken of my youngest daughter Peyton.
Here is my take on Monique's Layout:
And just a few detailed looks just for fun.
I added just a but of twine to my die cut title that i popped up using some foam dots.
I just love these layered stickers aren't the bunnies just the cutest thing ever!
