Its like shoplifting but it's not against the law.
Actually it's very much encouraged.
Not many people can be totally creative without inspiration.
Scrapbooking is about more than one thing.
It's preserving .
It's whatever fills your need.
So therefore the first and most important thing is to JUST DO IT!
Last year I was asked by this magazine if they could publish one of my layouts.
Here's a perfect example of creating "outside the box". The patterned paper featured here is actually from a Jewish holiday collection, but as you can see, adding a little of this and a little of that makes for a very happy springtime layout. How sweet is that?
This paper is from the Rosh Hashana collection (hence SWEET) for Crafting Jewish Style.
The creater of these awesome collections asked me to design layouts.
The magazine gives specific instructions how to make this layout.
Did I say "you can do it" yet?
Here's a layout that I scraplifted from this book a few years ago.
I loooove how it came out.
But all the same the message is clear.
And now I have it forever documented.
See how easy that is?
You should be convinced by now that you can do this.
That you want to do this.
That you will do this.
Start with this layout too.
Purchase exactly what you need.
If you have any questions E-mail me.
I will show you one more example of a scraplift.
This is from my very favorite Elsie.
A few years ago she put out this book.
She inspires me to be free with my creativity in a fun and colorful way!Heres the original.
And if you read my blog from the beginning you will remember this one.
So now that I am starting to trust you with my secrets the least you could do is start scrapbooking.
If you will check in with me I will show you more at a later date.
Just to keep you interested.
