Gimme a Copy.. The art of the Scraplift–Christmas style


share this: facebook

 

 

Because DSP was running its annual Christmas in July promotion this edition of GImme a Copy had a Christmas theme. The original layout was not a Christmas kit but the challenge was to use the design and create a christmas themed layout

The original layout is by Mars- Its a gorgeous layout design and I thought would lend itself very well to some great Christmas layouts and I wasnt wrong as you can see below from the marvellous layouts that were created.

Christmas Memories by Teetopper


These ornaments had been my DM's for years and years. Now that she is gone, they are most precious to me, and regardless of the colors or theme I choose each Christmas, these will always be present.
This is for Lauren's latest Gimme a Copy Challenge. This is a lift of Mars' beautiful Happiness layout, which is Lauren's pick this week.

It's traditon every year that we go to Candy Cane Lane.It's a beautiful neighborhood that decorates EVERY house for the entire season.You park and walk the streets enjoying the VERY festive and beautifuly lit homes,yards,roof tops.A couple streets even string lights over the streets from one home to another.People serve hot chocolate,some have fire pits on their driveways for people to stop and sit to relax and one man has Karaoke machine with a full size screen on his garage door.Everyone stops by to sing.It's amazing!! And so much fun.I can't remember the statistics,but the amount of lights and electricity that they use every year is through the roof.Not to mention the homeowners electric bills for two months..But they enjoy doing this and people come from all over San Diego to enjoy this.We are lucky,the neighborhood is just around the corner from our home so we go a couple times during the holiday season.And usually on Christmas Eve.

DSP Whimsical Christmas Page Kit
When my daughters were 5 and 3 years old, they had their first theater experience. We went to see the ballet 'The Snowman' and they were glued to their chairs, jaws dropped, totally hypnotized.
The producer - a friend of mine - arranged for them to meet The Snowman in his dressing room.
The Snowman totally played his part. He didn't speak one word, invited them in with handgestures, put Sabine ons his lap and his arm around Manon. *Snap*
I love this picture. The girls were blown away by the importance of meeting THE Snowman, red cheeks of excitement and I truly believe this was the performance that started their love for theater.

Little Christmas Angel by Leea

I like how this layout turned out, even if I got carried away and missed the theme I was trying for...I was going to try for Lauren's Give Me A Copy CIJ scraplift of Mar's layout, then my layout just took off on it's own...lol.
This is a photo of my oldest granddaughter from 2002 when she was an angel in the Christmas program at Church. I've wanted to use the photo for years now, but there were other things that stood out and just didn't work being in the photo (behind her head is someone's foot crossed over their knee with the boot very obvious in the original photo, I also had to work on the part of the wing that was covered). When I found Lauren's snow globe in my kit stash, I started working on the photo to give it a soft look (and hide that boot!) and I like how it turned out...so even if I didn't get the challenge right, I've got the photo improved
I recolored some elements. Lauren's Kits used for this layout (unless I missed one):

Holiday Happiness by Leea

This layout is a scraplift of Mar's layout featured in Lauren's CIJ Gimme A Copy CIJ challenge. These photos are several years old, but still fun to look at My husband with his beard and wearing a Santa hat, looking at a gift from our granddaughter and having fun laughing He saw my layout as I was finishing it and said he might grow his beard out again this fall...thinks it will be even more gray.
Kit used for this layout is Lauren's Christmas Sparkle page kit:
