Awesome Clusters: A Saturday Scraplift

I am in awe of scrappers who can put together beautiful layers and clusters to embellish their pages. How do they do it? I am no good at it. Therefore, when I saw kikimama’s gorgeous page about her husband and daughter, I knew it had to be my choice for this week’s scraplift. It is stunning, wow, wow, wow! Each item she added to her page is perfectly chosen and expertly placed. This is layering and clustering to perfection.


Two of the expert embellishers on the CT have created lovely scraplifts to share with you. First, Kim designed this adorable page about her beautiful daughter and her new glasses. The pink and white elements she used are fabulous against her dark background. Don’t you just love that Pencil Line Twist tying it all together?

I have been wanting to scrap these sweet photos of my grandson and his girlfriend at their Homecoming. (His mother and I had fun posing them!) This seemed the perfect time to give it a go with some embellishing. At least with this layout you can see a totally different take on the scraplift by someone who is cluster challenged (Notice how much shorter my supply list is!)
