Scraplifting Weekend 8

As I'm nearing the completion of our 10th Anniversary Cruise albums and the end of my Scraplifting Weekend, I'm feeling a sense of accomplishment and relaxation. I've had so much FUN scraplifting some of my favorite bloggers.

Karen is an avid cardmaker who enjoys photography, travels often, and documents her memories using Project Life. Karen's use of stamping, die cuts, and little details lead to an inspiring clean and elegant style. I wanted to include one of the 8x10 professional photos we purchased on the cruise in the Culinary Delights section of our album. The photo has lots of details (a large photo of us, three smaller photos of the cruise ship, a title & subtitle), so I was looking for something simple and found just what I was looking for in this post from Karen during last year's LOAD. I particularly liked the addition of the washi tape strips along the bottom of her Family Photo Op layout.

I matted the photo and the adhered it to a wide band of black cardstock. I added two hearts in the place of Karen's one, then popped on a few enamel dots and this simple layout is complete.

Thanks for the inspiration Karen!

  1. A flavour of Karen and a touch of Melissa - I like it!

  2. Thanks! I love it, and I'm quite sure it's the first time I've ever been scrap lifted!

  3. You really have captured your lift beautifully

  4. This turned out great, Melissa. I have been MIA for awhile so I need to go back through and look at all of your cruise layouts. Scraplifiting is a great way to get these pages done. Love that you are are spreading the work of other bloggers at the same time. Checking out Karen too. :)

  5. I especially love your paper (or washi) strips at the bottom. The perfect touch!

  6. I like the clean classic look of the page - perfect for that photo.


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
