OK, so I like almost never, ever scrap lift. At all. I get ideas here and there and incorporate them into my own designs, but rarely do I ever take a page someone else made and copy it. It’s totally acceptable to do that. It’s even flattering to the original artist, as long as you don’t try to pass the design off as your own idea. Give credit where credit is due, please.
So last week when I was scrapbooking I took a little booklet along of pages I had found on the internet that I really loved and wanted to use for the ideas. During the middle of the day when my mojo was beginning to wane, I decided that instead of trying to figure out my own layout that I’d scrap lift this particular one instead.
Here’s the original page. Her blog is French, so I can’t even read a word of it, but I believe her name is Stephanie, and her pages are gorgeous! Hop on over to her blog and browse her gallery. Her work is so beautiful. Thank you, Stephanie, for the inspiration!
I used the exact layout design and just tweaked it a bit to suit my photo and my own supplies. I loved the flower accents sprinkled on the right hand side of her page, so I made my own accents to fit my masculine, school-themed page instead.
I love all the layers and details on each of Stephanie’s pages. I’d like to get better at layering. Sometimes my pages lack dimension, I think. I love it when people use lots of layers to add dimension and interest. I’m still learning!
How about you? Have you ever scrap lifted anyone?
It’s Friday, y’all! I hope you have a super weekend! I’m planning on getting my housework done today so I can spend the day work on some crafty projects tomorrow.
