Good morning and welcome to the Saturday Scraplift. I’m sooo excited this week. And it’s funny because I kind of forgot (oops!) that I was hosting this week and all of a sudden realized it on Tuesday in a bit of a panic. So I opened up the gallery and BOOM! There was this week’s inspiration. Love it when fun things happen like that. 🙂
So, this week we are lifting the incomparable Melanie (Britgirl!) Her style is so vintage and warm and cozy and perfect for a winter scraplift. Now, I will admit that this collage style is out of my comfort zone, but after I started pulling elements and layering them on the page, I’m pretty sure this won’t be my last collage page! Best part, there really are no rules so I can’t screw this up.
I enlisted some help for this challenge and love the different takes on this page. First up is Delisa (DELISAK) and her absolutely charming Love collage. Think she just needs to frame this and hang it on her wall! Love the layers upon layers and this new Love Letters Kit is stunning and really worked with the patchwork background.

And my dear friend Debi (beehive50) jumped on the no rules collage train as well. Always love to see her take as she stays true to her style but still uses inspiration from the original page. The movement, the layered brushwork, the long supply list 😉 , and the fact that the truck had her name on it!! It all works on her page.

And finally, my page came together after my daughter put a few photos up on Photo Circle from her trip to an African village in Gambia yesterday. These children are so gorgeous and the smile on her face…swoon. Grateful that Delisa and Debi were inspired to NOT directly lift the inspiration page as that is how I roll. 🙂 This page was so fun to make (the supply list not so much HA!)
