"Making Lemonade #3" - Scraplift Yourself

Hello!  I'm finally back with the third instalment in my Making Lemonade series, which is all about staying creative and re-finding your scrappy mojo in the times you have no creative flow.  In this video I'm looking at scaplifting myself, which is something I've only ever down once before!

The layout that I chose to scrap lift is one that I've never shared on my blog before, and is one that I created for The Crafty Maven online crop that we had a few weeks ago.  It was for Tanya Hubbard's Challenge "Tackle the Terror" in which we had to take on something we found scary.  Like Tanya, my challenge was machine stitching circles.  The layout is all about the first day of school this year (in January), and how Azaria really wan't happy.

I loved this layout, and decided to scraplift it, this time with photos of Azaria on her birthday.  I used my August Hip Kit again.  In terms of scraplifting, I didn't recreate the original layout, but used it as a starting point and inspiration.

The photos aren't that great, but they definitely get the memory recorded.

I love the chipboard and wood veneers in this kit!

The "Hey!" and "Love" were originally cut apart cards that I cut into circles with my Cuttlebug.

And here is my video:

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!  Its Sunday right now, and tomorrow is the first day back at school for my older two (and Shaun) after two weeks off.
