You guys are really rocking the lifts! I was so impressed with what you came up with. Here's a handful of reader-submitted scraplifts.
First, Margie Scarpignato lifted the esteemed Ali Edwards:
And Margie's lift:
I'm lovin' how Margie adapted the design for her number of photos. She writes, "I love to scraplift. Sometimes I do it more literally than others. This one was a pretty straight forward scraplift. I didn't change much out besides the photos, journaling and the stamp. I love how it turned out. I find I learn alot by scraplifting. It helps me step outside of my comfort zone and learn techniques as well as aspects of design I might not discover on my own. Often after scraplifting I then find I can incorporate new things into my own original designs.
In some cultures & art disciplines students learn by copying the masters. In Japan students even take on the name of their master." Impressive job, lady (and can I change my name to Lain WenkeSmithSimickFloresWinnickCostenDillowDickinsonOvertonPalmer... oh, you get the picture!)
Next, MargotMacG lifted Brenda Arnell.
Here's Brenda's layout:
And here's Margot's spin:
I like how she changed the title just a nudge, and used the edges for journaling. Woohoo, chica!
Now, guess which layout from Wednesday Kate lifted?
You got it! She lifted my lift of Celeste Smith's layout... how's that for six degrees of separation!
Here's another Ali inspiration from Meastmanak (originally in CK 9/09):
...and her spin:
Once again, NO ONE would ever have guessed these two were "the same."
Finally, another reader, Agata, shares my Jody love. Here's Jody Wenke's original layout:
And Agata's adaptation:
Now, if I haven't inspired you to give scraplifting a try, then I have failed... and I hate failing! So go give it a try. Save me some angst, will ya? ;)
Thanks for spending the week with me!
