Gimme a Copy–the Art of the Scraplift


share this: facebook

 

One of the easiest ways to create a great layout in a faster time is to scraplift a layout you particularly like. Scraplifting can be anything from a complete copy just changing the photo, to taking one part of the layout and using that as the basis for your inspiration and any and everything between.

There is no shame in scraplifting, and in fact it can be the perfect way to complete a layout fast, while complimenting the original layout designer.

Hence I started the Gimme a Copy challenge where I will choose a layout I particularly like and leave it to you to create your own magic using it as inspiration.

For the first challenge I chose this layout by DSP Member honeymoon as our inspiration

Fiona used the following products to make her layout

Kit: Hint of Heather Page Kit by Lauren Bavin
Word Art: The History 2 Word Art by Tina Chambers

Here are the scraplifts.

Castello Di Amarosa Gate House by Lauren Bavin

This is a scraplift of Honeymoons layout  for my new challenge Gimme a Copy which is to scraplift a given layout from a previous gimme more challenge
As you can see ive been pretty true to the original layout just changing the word art to suit
I used my A Hint of Heather page kit  -and Tinas Travel word art set 2

    Freedom by Teetopper

For her first Copy Challenge, she chose Fiona's (honeymoon) Urquhart Castle. What an awesome layout it is!
This is my lift, pretty much identical because hers was so pretty. I did use a couple of elements from the companion kit, and different word art to match my photo.

Work in Progress by Marriedin79

Journaling: Almost our entire house has been a work in progress since the middle of January. What started with a simple request to paint our bedroom has evolved into a let's-paint-every-room-and-put-up-crown-moulding project. This is the family room where the boys are painting the aforementioned moulding in preparation for the installation to begin tomorrow.
I used several of Lauren's kits for this layout.
Rainbow's End
Blended Memories
A Splash of Colour AOP2
A Splash of Colour AOP
Additionally, I created my own brush for the word art.

I did this layout for Lauren's new challenge to scraplift a layout she chooses.
I used her Cooper's Beach and Coastal Breeze Page Kits.
Thanks honeymoon for the great page to lift and thanks Lauren because I've never lifted a page before and this was all I needed was someone to give me the page to use as inspiration.

Lucy, who is seated is the Grandmother I never met - died when my mother was a teenager. When I came across this photo I could see an expression of my older granddaughter in my grandmother's face.

St. Olav’s Church by Mars

Journaling: St. Olav’s Church, Avaldsnes
Karmøy Island, Norway
St. Olav's Church, founded in 1250 AD on Avaldsnes is Norway’s oldest royal seat. Avaldsnes is at the mouth of the ‘Nordvegen’ fjord,or' the way north' where the name Norway comes from. This medieval stone church has been a landmark for seafarers for centuries. It still stands as a powerful symbol of Karmøy’s former glory.
My grandfather was born on the island of Karmøy and I had the great pleasure of exploring it myself including the house he was born in that was 400 years old. It is fascinating to see such old structures, especially coming from such a young country.
