Scrappy Friday – Missy Whidden Scraplift

Hello Creatives!

Here I am with the 4th Scrappy friday of the month. I usually only do 3, but because the challenges were so fun, and the fact that I am on holidays, here I am for a fourth one!!!

But, to be perfectly honest, the truth is…. How could I miss the opportunity to scraplift a scrapper I totally admire?

As you probably know, the challenge is to scraplift Missy Whidden this week!

Here is the page I’ve chosen :

What I particularly liked in this page is the background, made of different paper strips, the different layers, the frames, the embellishments and the different words and phrases. Well, I confess…I like every single bits of that page LOL!

What I knew from the beginning to be impossible for me was to add some stitching to the page, as you probably know by now, I’m totally hopeless at it!

However, I’ve come up with a page which is quite different from the original, but which includes the elements I’ve listed above:

Instead of using strips of paper, I used some washi tape strips. and I framed my pic’. I also tried to add some volume and layers, as well as some embellishments (paper clips, perspextives, flairs and Spiegelmom Scraps felt and cork stars and clouds)

I then added some words and phrases, using either stickers or stamps.

It was such a pleasure to scraplift such a talented scrapper! Have YOU tried to play along with us this week?

See you next Friday for another Scrappy Friday!

SN@P 2 It! Fast layouts

SN@P, do you SN@P?  Simple Stories SN@P, that is. At first, I wasn’t too sure about the small pocket pages, but this line is fantastic!!  Not only can you create great 6×8″ scrapbook incorporating lots of pictures and memorabilia, but you can use these same elements on your scrapbook layouts too.  Yes, it’s true! And, it’s fast.  See…

This layout came together in less that 30 minutes! I’m totally serious here.  I just cut the diagonal stripe to 6×8″ and placed is off center in the 12×12″ base.  I tilted my 4×4″ Instagram picture and off set it within the 6×8″ piece.  You can see that I punched some clouds with my trusty Fiskars Cloud Punch (I have 3 sizes).  I cut apart a 3×5 bingo card and placed on the top and bottom of the photo, added some SN@P Stickers and Flair Badges, spattered some inks, stuck on some washi and added my overlay for the title.  Don’t be scared of these transparency overlays!! They’re awesome to use. You can layer them, just like I did below.  GOOD. TO. GO!

This one came together in about 40 minutes, but only because I was being a putz, LOL… Any-hoo, I used one 4×4″ and two 3×3″ Instagram photos here.  I trimmed one of the SN@P border stripe papers to include the sections I wanted, then built my layout up from there.  I adhered my photos and tucked some of the polaroid cards behind them, along with more transparencies.  These SN@P border & element stickers are so fun!!  There are so many shapes and fun sayings that you’ll have something for lots of your projects.

So, that’s how I SN@P friends!  These layouts are also featured in the Spring 2013 Memory Works Look Book, available for download for FREE ~ HERE!!   I’m also working on a SN@P 6×8″ album so I’ll be sharing that soon!  Until then, happy scrappin’!!
