Saturday Scraplift: Let the Layering Begin!

Today is the fifth Saturday of the month, so we’re lifting one of our own CT members: Carolynn (mamabean). Carolynn’s signature layering is immediately recognizable in the gallery and invites close study. Her use of embellishments and brushes is impeccable and no small feat to reproduce. Her fellow CT members were excited to lift Carolynn; here’s what we did:


Debi (beehive50) stepped out of her clean and simple box and did a wonderful job lifting Carolynn’s Baby Love page. Debi moved the main design toward the top of the page, highlighting that great shot of her son. I love the little detail at the bottom and Debi’s great shadow work.

Pam (blkcow) celebrated her sweet granddaughter’s first birthday with a lift of Carolynn’s Hello Sunshine page. I love how the energetic brushwork and balloon-filled photo reinforce the reason for the page. They just scream, “Party!”

Kathleen (kathleen.summers) used a sweet picture of her husband and younger daughter in her lift of Carolynn’s Cold November Days. The strips of patterned paper, brushwork, and musical elements are perfect, and those pops of red really capture the viewer’s attention.

I celebrated my granddaughter’s birthday, too, albeit her ninth instead of her first, when I lifted Carolynn’s Play Time page. It was fun finding elements to “hang” from the twine, and I got to use one of my favorite color combinations: purple and green.
