Saturday Scraplift Challenge: Corner to Corner

Happy Saturday everyone! Is there anyone else out there just like me… so thankful that it’s weekend?! And what is better than taking a little time to check out this week’s scraplift and getting a page in the gallery? I’ve had this page of Erin’s (Ernie88) in my favourites folder for a while and I was thrilled when some of the Creative Team and Guest Creative Team jumped in on the lift. It’s interesting to note that we were all inspired to keep the diagonal from bottom left to top right – a true testament to Erin’s great design!

Quick off the mark was Lynnie (grandma lynnie), matching up a large blended photo with a perfect music paper to form the backdrop for her wonderful image. Am I the only one that didn’t know Lynnie plays guitar?!

Here is Lynnie’s supply list: Letter Box KitFine Lines Border Lines Brushes and Stamps No. 02Musical Epoxies No. 01Musically Quoted Brushes and Stamps,Rimmed Framers No. 01Krafty Journal Spots No. 02Sentiment Flairs No. 04Flossy Stitches: BlueLoosely Labeled Dates No. 01A – all Katie Pertiet.

The mix of soft tones, the black brushwork and title work create great contrast in Maureen’s (maureen reynolds) lift and I like how well the grey stripes work with the gentle plaid paper. The page is balanced nicely with the journaling which lets us in on the story behind the image – bless him! I’m sure he’s happy with his little sister now though!

Julie (MaggieMae) made great use of the new Color Essentials Lime range for her lift, using plaid and dotted paper, a great matting for her image, and carrying on through with the lime for her brushwork and the finer details of her lift. Bear looks so cuddly!

I’ve felt a little bit in a rut with my own scrapping lately so I chose Erin’s page for the scraplift because I knew I’d be challenged with the diagonal. I have to admit that I was tempted to swing it a little (ok, more than a little!) so the page was simple split down the middle instead. But as I studied Erin’s page more, the more I was happy with how my page was starting to look with the diagonal. I was also inspired with the star detail that Erin used. So Erin, if you’re reading this, this page is all down to you, my friend, thank you so much for the inspiration!I used: Simple Mini Mix No. 01Simple Mini Mix No. 02Thin Classic Photo Frames No. 04Monthly Memories Element Pack No. 05Cedar Crest Element PackAntiquarian Artistry No. 01 Element PackColor Essentials Turquoise Element PackColor Essentials Turquoise Painted LayersPainted Star Clusters and Layers No. 01Vintage Flashcards: Adjectives No. 01Typewriter Clusters Brushes and Stamps No. 05Stamp Sets: Wild WorldTwisted Stitches No. 02Stapled Stacks Stars No. 01Typed and Scripted Brushes and Stamps No. 09Stitched Word Squares No. 01Neutral Word Bits No. 03 – all Katie Pertiet.

I do hope your inspired by this week’s scraplift to document a story of your own and share it with us in the Saturday Scraplift Challenge gallery.
