MARCH SCRAPLIFT CONTEST

Postby tricia » Mar 23rd, '09, 11:18 pm

This is your chance to have your work featured in our newsletter -- We want to see your interpretations of this month's Scraplift layout (by Anja) and we have a great prize for one lucky person that plays along. Just uppload your lift of Anja's "VDay" layout to the gallery and add a link to your layout in this thread on the message board.

The person who creates our favorite lift will get a free May kit, and will be asked to create a layout to be published in May's Scraplift column.

Here's Anja's layout:

And how Aida interpreted it:

And how Mou made it her own:

For those of you who are not subscribed or missed this month's newsletter, here is Anja's layout for this month's scraplift. We absolutely loved the stitches and weaving :

Image


Our other DT members also did their take on it. Here is Mou's lift of Anja's layout:

Image

Mou lifted the paper strips, stitching and stamped label. She did a 6x12 scalloped neutral backgound to balance the rich colors and complex patterns of the paper strips. Like Anja, she did not use a photo, instead she used a Home decor idea card.

Aida also did her take of this:

Image

Aida had the same paper choices and also lifted the bottom-right aligned design.

Remember - The person who creates our favorite lift will get a free May kit, and will be asked to create a layout to be published in May's Scraplift column!!

Just add a link to this thread once you've got your layout uploaded to the Cocoa Daisy Gallery...

There are so many ways to lift the layout :) Try lifting the strips of paper or the colour combo as well :).. Would love to see what you come up with.

So this was hugely challenging but I did it! My take was so create a large sheet of paper weave and then to cut my accents / embellishments out of the weave....Am very happy with the result, thanks for kicking me out of my comfort zone. Am not sure how to add the link from here to the gallery??? Is this the link....

Newbie with a Question here!!! OK, two questions :)

1) Do you have to use products from the March kit for the lift?
2) When is the deadline for uploading?

Thanks!

Here's my take.

gallery/pic.php?mode=large&pic_id=1351

I laughed when I realized that I had almost covered up the paper weave with my large photo block, but I was really happy with the results.

Hi Aubrey --

1. No you don't have to use products from the March Kit :)
2. The regular deadline for the scraplifts I believe is 10th of April.

Thanks for asking!! And Good luck!!

Here's my scraplift entry - I loved Anja's paperweave, something I've never tried, so thought I'd give it a go. You need to read my LO's description in the gallery to understand the title! ;D

This is my take:

Noticed that the top part of Anja's LO is a large strip, so instead I placed these Sassafrass layered cutouts. Had fun doing the paper weaving. Thanks for the inspiration.

I don't know if this 'counts' as I've just lifted the paper strips, but I did this one last night:
