Scraplifting – using Someone Else’s Page as Inspiration

A couple of weeks ago I posted a link on the weekly update on the SSN Blog to Chelsea Cook’s blog  to show you her scrapbooking layouts which are lovely.  I also said that I would “Scraplift” one of them.

Well actually I decided to make Sketch using a couple of Chelsea’s layouts (from her gallery) for the June SimplyScrapbookingNow Newsletter.  And I made my own 12×12 scrapbook page yesterday from the sketch and it looks like this… (click on the picture for an enlargement)

Fairies Scrapbook Page by SundayL

Below is my sketch which I created from two of Chelsea’s pages (pictured underneath the sketch!)

I took the layers of paper strips idea from this layout …

… and the circle and journaling elements from this page to create the sketch.

Here are some close-ups of my page.   This picture shows the hand stitching.  TIP: It’s always best to prick the holes before sewing.

In the picture below you can see some sparkly brads.  The blue one (in the white flower) is a “sugared” brad which I was given as part of a stash swap.  The green one is an ordinary brad which I covered in Stickles glitter glue!  It does the same job.  I also added the same glitter glue to the pink Butterfly brad too.
