Scraplift a Scrap Page - Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop November 2021

 

Welcome to this months hop - I got to pick this one and I have been looking forward to it. I don't know about you but I love looking at other scrappers work and recreating it myself. The circle of scrapping friends I hang with call it Scraplifting so I thought it would be a great theme for us to do. So here is my page.

If you are coming from Ma├» Chapelains blog, you are already in the loop but you can otherwise follow the links below and you will eventually get to see all the pages we have to share.

Ribbon Page

I have scrap-lifted a friends page - a little history I have been scrapping with this friend for probably 15 years or more and I have always been in awe of her pages. I chose this page because we have so many different ribbons and fibers and if you are anything like me you will have just as many. So this is the page I scrap lifted.

My friends page


The flowers and ribbons on my page are all Stampin Up! some are retired but I wanted some variety so I pulled out as many as I could find and if I didn't have one the right colour well I coloured it.

Ribbon variety
Kim used a doily for added texture in the center of her page - I didn't have one to use so I cut some velum using the Artistic Dies from the current Annual Catalogue for a similar effect.
I also had a big box of gems of all varieties so I became very heavy handed with popping those babies everywhere. 

Heads up - the ribbon is all stapled to a cardstock circle to make it go around nice and evenly. Under the photo there is a journal card that slips in and out from under the photo.

There is inspiration all around us be it the print on someone's, clothes a nice bag we see or even  something we feel like the warmth of the sun on our faces. Think about where you get your inspiration from.

Friends are like Seashells for Hooray It's Thursday

  This weeks card made in my Hooray it's Thursday Facebook live. I got to borrow this beautiful Friends are like Seashells Bundle and the coordinating 3D Embossing folder so today my pre recorded video features just that! I have been loving the Alcohol blending technique so that is back also.

Smooshing with Christmas Season Hooray It's Thursday 28th October

Last Thursday of the month for October a I have a technique to share. Known by me as 'Smooshing' because that is what I found most people calling it on YouTube  for want of a better reason.

Smooshed card front

This card was also part of a team challenge - we had a challenge that was a sketch. I will admit I love the team stuff that we do - usually its a load of fun but it never ceases to inspire me.

Card sketch

Here is this weeks video - it is orientated better for easier watching than the live version - I think I need to work on the video taping.
