Hello Cocoa Vanilla friends!

 

It’s Sophie here and I have something fun to share with you!

 

Today is a scraplift swap !

 

I had to pick a layout from the lovely and talented Sue Plumb and scraplift it! Ohhh there were so many GORGEOUS ones to choose from…!

 

Here is her page:

 

 

And here is mine:

 

 

I used the beautiful These Days collection for my page. I started with a white background and added a little bit of mixed media (I used Distress Oxides) on the lower portion of the page, where my title was going to be.

 

I used three layers of patterned papers, just like she did, teared the central part of the upper layer and tied it to the page with a few stitches. I also hand stitched on the top of the page.

 

 

I centered three colored photos of Sabrina and Farine, mounted on tissue paper and foam adhesive, and tucked a few frames from the embellishment pack under them.

 

My title is a combination of the Mini Puffy Alphabet pack and letter dies from my stash.

 

 

Finally, I created a floral cluster around the photos and titles, instead of hearts, added a few butterflies and a Wood Button, and handwrote my journaling.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That’s a pretty faithful scraplift from the original, isn’t it? Even though the end-result, with another color scheme and collection, turns out quite different…! That’s the beauty of scraplifting !!

 

I hope this was inspiring for you and that you like our pages!

 

Thank you and have a great day!
