You’ve heard of a forklift. You’ve heard of a facelift. But have you heard of a scraplift? Of course you have! Just about every scrapbooker I know pulls inspiration from the ideas and creations of others. It’s one of the things that make the creative scrapbooking community so fun! Check out how these fantastic designers have scraplifted and drawn inspiration from pages published in Creating Keepsakes magazine in this installment of “CK & Me!”
When it comes to an issue of Creating Keepsakes, the cover layout is the first page we get to enjoy, and the layout featured on our March/April 2011 cover, created by Mou Saha, is definitely one to enjoy.
Check out how Connie Myers took Mou’s design and made it her own by switching up the colors a bit and changing the direction and size of the photo. What a happy birthday design this is, Connie. Thanks for sending it our way!
Crystal Butler tells us that the misting on my layout and the overall design of Izzy Anderson’s sweet page inspired her to create this fun scrapbook page. Way to combine ideas to make your own amazing page, Crystal! Thanks for submitting.
As you can see, Izzy found inspiration in the theme of Christina’s page. Izzy said she rarely scrapbooks about herself, but that the playful approach Christina took with her journaling got her excited to make her own random list. So happy to see you scrapbooking about yourself, Izzy. It’s a worthwhile effort that generations to come are going to love having. Thanks for sending your vibrant page and sharing your experience with us!
