The One Where I Scraplifted...

Ah scraplifting...the art of taking someone's else sketch or layout concept and copying it. I do it. I have the Becky Higgin's Sketches books and use them all the time. I love Allison Davis' sketches.
I even scraplift from myself. Gasp. It's true. Sometimes, I'm just too lazy to reinvent the wheel or sometimes, I just really love the way something turned out.
I created this layout of my son Jackson's photos from a family photo shoot and loved the look of it so much I replicated it for my other two boys (Brody wasn't born yet, so no photos of him).



The only difference (besides the cardstock color) is the use of some additional elements on Jackson's layout. I used twine for the very first time on his layout. I have to admit I'm kind of hooked-good stuff!

All materials are Sassafrass except the twine (We R Memory Keepers).

Do you scraplift? Who is your inspiration? 


  1. great job! love them!--you know i always scraplift myselft when i do duplicate laouts for my boys--heck yeah! it makes it so easy!

  2. i often do three layouts that are nearly identical for each of the kids...don't see a thing wrong with that!
