Online there is an abundance of beautiful layouts available for inspiration. We all love to drool over them, right? Well, today we hope to inspire you to pick one of them and scraplift it while making it work for you!
How to Scraplift 101
- Find a layout that you love.
- Pick a favorite element from the page that grabs your attention: It could be the color palette, layout of the page, the type of photos, theme, the journaling, title, or embellishments used.
- Choose your own photos and papers that work together while incorporating this favorite element. Your project does not have to be a direct copy if you do not want it to be.
- Have fun! Scraplifting is meant to be an AID, not a burden. Your project may turn out completely different from what you started with but, as long as you are happy with it, then that is all that matters.

Today we have a few gals scraplifting this gorgeous layout by Felicity Wilson!
We told our team to just be inspired by the design. Pick one thing you LOVE and go with it. Here is what they came up with:

By Erin Blegen
There were so many things to lift and enjoy from Felicity's example. I followed the design of her layout while making a few things my own; the large pennant piece was turned vertically to better support my portrait photo and some additional layers were added in. I loved the little banners, too, and had to keep them! Thanks to Felicity for the inspiration!
We love how Erin kept the banner design near the top, but simplified the whole design to fit her style. She also switched a cool-toned layout to warmer autumn tones.

We love Lene's bright, fun, whimsical layout! She kept many similar elements (like the butterflies and textured backdrop) from the original layout, but moved the weight of the design to the bottom.
by Nic Howard
Nic was thrilled to be given Felicity’s layout to scraplift, as a long time admirer of Felicity's work she saw things straight away that inspired her. The first thing was the colour, yellow with a pop of teal. Nic quickly discovered a lack of yellow paper in her stash so she ended up with a switch in colours, but enjoyed using the yellow as contrast, it’s a colour she doesn't’ often use.
Along with the colouring, Nic loved the shabbiness of Felicity’s layout, the rough edges and cluster around the photo. Felicity’s style includes loads of fabulous embellishing details and while Nic didn’t include quite as many different elements as Felicity, she did enjoy playing with layers of paper, banner cuts, texture paste & masking in her attempt to emulate Felicity's gorgeous style.
Journaling: Braden with his quiet and humble nature has recently earned himself the nickname Ninja. You don’t know he is there until you turn and he is standing quietly beside you.
We were so excited to see Nic stay with the original color palette of Felicity's beautiful layout, but used more turquoise to fit Nic's photo and style!
