Week 3 - Thursday: Scraplift Challenge #4

For our 4th scraplift challenge, we're switching it up a little. Katie and I (Emily) decided to have some fun and scraplift each other! Take a look at the layouts we chose and then pick either one to scraplift yourself to enter the challenge.

Emily's choice: I chose this layout of Katie's because I loved what she did with the patterned paper behind her photo and I wanted to try something similar.

Emily's layout: I had a perfect photo for this layout, but then I had to make a quick trip to Michaels for a single sheet of patterned paper because I had absolutely nothing in a dark enough shade of blue or black to work with! Once I got the paper, though, this layout came together pretty easily. I decided to add stitching to the sunburst, which took awhile to do but was totally worth it for the extra detail and texture it added.

Katie's Layout: After looking through Emily's blog, I decided to scraplift this layout. Emily's layout was actually inspired by Shimelle's Starting Point. (Which if you've never been to Shimelle's blog, you totally should!)

I really loved the square photo, as well as the layering of papers behind it. I chose to use a picture of my Minion shoes, and then also used "minion colors" for my layout, which just meant bright blues and yellows. I also threw in a few pops of red washi tape.

We hope you're inspired by our layouts this week and we can't wait to see your take on one of our layouts!


  1. cool idea to switch layouts! I love the dark blue on Emily's layout!
