So we have been working out in our yard to get it ready to enjoythe warm weather, and all to no avail...it is snowing again, so I stayed in all day with my beautiful baby boy and scrapped and caught up on old episodes of Brothers & Sisters! I've told you all that I'm taking a class, and not only am I learning a ton, but I am receiving tons of inspiration from my fellow classmates. Seeing others work on a constant basis, alongside yours not only helps you to step it up a notch, but also gets the creative juices flowing. The three layouts above are layouts that I scraplifted from others. For those of you who don't live and breathe scrapbooking like myself, scraplifting is using an idea from someone else, and is perfectly fine as long as you do not copy there layout exactly, and you give them proper credit.
CREATIVE TIP: When you're looking to complete a lot of layouts in the shortest amount of time, use ideas from others. You can already see that the design or idea works, if it caught your eye in a gallery or a magazine, so use the idea and build off it, but always remember to give credit when necessary. In the above layouts I used everything from basic layout design, to subject matter, to color schemes, from others work.
"Diet Coke" The papers are from Dana Zarling, the Hipster Plume Brush is from Anna Aspnes, both from Designerdigitals.com, The ribbons, staple, sticker and flower are from Shabby Princess and the My life journaling brush comes from Brusheezy. I used CK Rugged font, and the photo was by Lauren Roth. The idea of the diet coke page was scraplifted from the Get it Scrapped Gallery and was submitted by "quilter422".
"Moments Blessed" The paper and folder tab was from Peppermint Creative's Autumn Blend Kit, The moments stamped and fabric swatch brushes are from KPerteit, The splatter brush is from Brusheezy, The staples and frame are from Shabby Princess and the basic layout of the page was scraplifted from the Get it Scrapped Gallery and submitted by "janellebelle".
"A Perfect Day" the papers are from Dana Zarling's Breezy Days paper pack, the two flowers are from Shabby Princess. The Perfect day word art is from Jessica Sprague, the font was CK Curly and the string is from KPertiet's all hung up kit and the alpha charms are by peppermint creative. Some basic design elements were scraplifted from a layout submitted by "anke" on the Get it Scrapped Gallery.
