Scraplifting Weekend 5

Have you noticed that all my layouts this weekend feature photos from our 10th anniversary cruise? I'm determined to complete the final pages for that project, thus my idea to scraplift some of my favorite bloggers. Scraplifting the design of someone else's layout means I can have FUN while creating more layouts in less time.

Jacky is a self-proclaimed craft addict and creates some of the most amazing cards with multiple layers of papers, stamped images and embellishments. She's also a wonderful scrapbooker who uses lots of patterned paper, however she often starts with a cardstock background for her layouts. I chose this recent layout to scraplift because I had four food photos to scrap, three of them were somewhat darker than the other, and this layout design was perfect to accommodate that fact.

I also really like how Jacky used strips of the heart patterned paper as an element on the top right of her page. I found a text paper in my stash that had rows of spices in colors that worked with my photos, so I cut them apart and mimicked Jacky's design.

I included my journaling on a tag in the bottom left corner.

This layout came together fairly quickly, and I"m thrilled with how this design worked with my photos.

Thanks for the inspiration Jacky!
