Scraplift #41 is Abbysmommy!! UPDATED

Here it is...the last scraplift before the new format!!! I can't wait to unveil all the fun I have planned for this year, but right now, let's pay attention to the matter at hand: this adorable sweet layout by Amy, abbysmommy!

Here's the link to her layout at DST so you can go give her luvs!!!:

Out of Sorts

I was drawn to this layout because of the inventive way she journalled down the side of the photo and that wonderful, moody expressive photo!!! I love the doodles, the stitched down journaling tags and the stitching!!

Let's have some fun with this one - and as always, link me to your layouts when you're done!!!!

Here they are, the last of the lifts of 2006 and the last as this incarnation of the scraplift blog. I hope you join us at our new home: http://pachimactoo.typepad.com/lift_twists/
Here's mine!!! I used Ronna Penner's Fresh Breeze Kit, Shabby Miss Jenn's background, Jessica Spragues Echoes of Asia for the frame and Gina Cabrera Book Bag Essentials for the Dream swatch - recolored. I think this has wound up to be one of my most favorite layouts!!!!!

This insanely adorable layout comes from Emily Powers: On January 2nd, Addy was 18 months; seriously, where is the time going?!?! Journaling Reads:

You love the book Doggies by Sandra Boynton.
You just started saying "Pease" and "Tan U."
Your favorite foods are dill pickles and cheese.
To Do: Playdough, Blocks, and The Backyardigans.

Credits: Shabby Miss Jenn --Paris Flea Market and Mia's Room. This layout uses both of those kits. The stitching, polaroid and labels (recolored) are from her previous kits. You can find SMJ's super chic stuff at Shabby Miss Jenn Designs!

Fonts: FG Freja and 1942 Report

Journaling = This is the moment that it hit me. There was something missing. My arms were a little lighter, yet my heart was heavier. I’ve been so used to having to keep an eye on 2 little ones at the same time. I’ve been so used to pushing 2 on the swings. I’ve been so used to trying to get both of you in photos. And this is the moment that it hit me that I would no longer be able to witness your every waking moment. It was a big change when you were born with the constant care. Now that you’re older and don’t require my constant attention – that separation is a big change…it is a big change for me.

This beautiful layout is by BugletMom - and I adore the bright colors she used!!! credits: "worn out" papers and elements by stacie prinzo

Elaina did this one - and I didn't get a credits email so I will get it from her, but here's her cutie Lily! I love the sandals - so cute!!!

I erased the email and didn't get the artist's name for this one - if it's you please email me with your name!! She says, "My daughter took this photo of dh and I just before we went tout New Years Eve to a movie and dinner with friends. I thought this kit of Tracy Anns had the perfect color and I love the glitter to make it a bit more festive! Happy New Year Everybody!!! May you all be happy, healthy and prosperous!! TFL!!"

This wonderful two pager is from Julie!!

The journaling talks about Hayli being scared to climb down the tires at the park. She has cerebral palsy and it has effected the right side of her body. She doesn't use her right hand unless she is constantly reminded to do so, which you can see in the first picture. But with a little persuading she made the whole way down herself, using both hands!

Here We Are at # 40!!!! UPDATED

Our lift of the week is by Gerada, Nevache on the digishoptalk boards.

I was drawn into the layout by the fabulous autumn colors and beautiful pictures of her dog. I was sad to read the subject matter of the layout - but it's really a great layout and I know we can have fun lifting it!

I really love the cardboard wrapped around by those beautiful ribbons and the wonderful colors. It is simple but conveys the feeling of the layout and the colors of the season it's portraying.

Go ahead and leave her some praise here: Extended Time and then join me in lifting this layout!


Wow - what fun - we had a lot of you ladies joining me for this one - the last lift of 2006!!

I had so much fun doing this layout - it's not my normal style, so it was hard to do all the rick racks and embellishments - but I love the way it came out!!! I have been wanting to use Shabby Princess's Winter XL kit, and these pictures and layout were perfect for it!!!

I used Shabby Princess's AWESOME Winter XL Mega Kit, available at http://www.theshabbyshoppe.com and Gina Cabrera's Cardboard, available at http://www.digitaldesignessentials.com

This adorable lift is from Lindsay Lou!!!! I got a total giggle feeling inside when I saw this one - the pictures are just too adorable and I love the pink and brown theme!!

Lori's entry is this adorable layout of her new doggie!! I love all the snowflakes and the reds and the way she used one paper tear instead of the cardboards!!!

This elegant layout is from Bunster!!! I really love the rick colors in the layout and the stringed circles with the gold snowflake she used to tie down the photo!! I also like the way she used one picture and just tiled them over eachother and made the cardboard mimic the shape of the tree!! Awesome, inventive lift!!!

Layout created with Tara Dunstans Christmas Jingles Mini Kit, Snowflake, ribbon, holly and stitched circle elements by Michelle Coleman

This sweet little one is by Sunshine06. I love the bar code tags and the fun little way she made those pictures shine! I especially love all the buttons!!! These are of Some older pictures of my son learning to stand

CREDITS: Background Paper: Sunday B. Tags: Miss Mint. Buttons: Lisa Whitney. Stamped Alpha: Michelle Coleman. Font: Century Gothic.

This fun layout is by Immaculeah. I'm glad I'm not the only one who transports my kid to take pictures in front of big things!! LOL!!! I love the colors and the fun way she showcased it all. I especially like the way she used the safety pin with all the fun bling on it!!!!! 

She says, "Sorry my girls' faces did not appear to be clear as I wanted to capture the giant toys. Thanks for taking a peek!"

and Last, but certainly not least, is Amanda's lift! I got really teary eyed reading the journaling!

I love the little clump of elements she used, and those forget me nots are a perfect touch!

Our Lift #39 Really "sends" me...Updated!

Get it ... it's a postcard...sends me?? Hahahahaha!! Sorry, it's really late and I'm a bit punchy - but I have made a commitment to you all to get a new lift up every Sunday NO FAIL!!

When I saw this layout by Vanessa a few days ago, I put it in my favorites to comment on and never got back to it until tonight! EEEKS!! Well, I commented on the layout and realized that it was also going to be the scraplift this week. I really want to choose layouts that stretch me - that make me go out of my clean and simple comfort zone and do things I would not ever think of on my own.

The very first think I love about is that she used it like a real post card. Alot of the cards that I see are working with the front, or use it as a backdrop. This looks like it's being used and it's meant to be there. The doodles in the corners are so fun and the fun colors are perfect for this layout. The lattice in the picture looks like it was totally planned along with the layout! The tip topper for me was that fabulous stamp!!! I love the holly and berries sprig that embellishes it!!

I am figuring out my picture now and I can't wait to dig in and try this one. I hope you find this one fun and challenging as well!!!!

So, this week is really hard to get time to scrap...and the lifts show it. There was one so far who did this lift. If anyone more did - I didn't see it! :-( If you did - please post a link for me to get it up.

I loved this lift so much, but in doing it I realized just how intricate it is!!!

Here's Mine:

I used Taran Conyers Spring Doodles, Shabby Miss Jenn's bow, and Gina Cabrera's backgrounds. I wanted to make it like a post card but I just couldn't make it look as good as the original - so I kept the stamp idea, and made a calendar page with it!!!!

jennieb75 has done a really cute layout! I love this!! I really like the way she took the theme of the layout and went with it!! That's what scraplifting is all about - doing what it inspires you to do - whether it's a full on exact lift or the feeling the layout gives you!!!!!

Here's what she says about her layout: I've been checking out a few other member's letters and thought it would be fun to try it!! Had to give it a spin with the postcard style! lol

kraft paper by Christine Smith
kit by Meredith Fenwick - peppermint bark mini
quote by JanHicks
fonts are Century gothic and Pea Jenny script
journal stamp by Katie Pertiet
notebook paper by ksharonk

holiday stamp by Michelle Coleman

Enjoy - and no lift ever closes, so if you want to do this one later - you're always welcome to!!!!!

It's Lift Number 38 Already!!! UPDATED

This layout by Kerry (Rocalisa) is just the CUUUUTEST!!!! It's a sketch plate by Anita Stergiou, and the subject matter just really made this layout shine extra bright for me. I love cute little stories about what our kidlets are doing. I think what attracted me most to this layout is that it is very simple, but yet it has a lot going on! If you look closely - she has fun little things happening with the title with chipboard and regular fots, the picture that totally tells a story without even having to read the journaling - and journaling that satisfies your curiousity when you read it!! The flowers are adorable and I like the way she laytered the papers and left the kraft paper like a mat in a framed piece of art!

Great job Kerry!!!

I hope you all want to join in and lift this sweet layout with me! As always, post it to me in this thread about it over at DST or email mea at digiscraplift at yahoo dot com

Journalling ~ 5th October, 2006
Leigh came to visit today and let you play with her car keys. After a little while I went to see what you were doing and this is what I found. You took your stool from the laundry to the front door, climbed up on it so that you were tall enough to reach the locks and tried using Leigh's keys on the door. I'm not sure if you thought you were locking or unlocking it, but you were very involved in what you were doing. I'm now very careful to make sure you can't get out that door any time as I don't want you to get onto the street. A little Houdini is something I really don't need.

Sketch*PLATE 5 by Anita Stergiou, including stylised flowers; everything else from Winter Whites by Christy Lyle and Robin Carlton; fonts are Jeana and Mom's Typewriter


Here are the layouts that arrived in my inbox and in the threads at DST. As always, if you've done the lift (or any other lift for that matter) and you don't see yours on the blog - please email me the link and I'll get it up right away!!!

I really had fun with this one. I have been waiting for a perfect layout for the journaling an dpicture I ha - and this really said that this was IT.!!

Here's mine: I have always loved the intent way that Melissa examines the world and when I saw this picture of her examining the leaves instead of playing in them, I knew I had a shot I wanted!

I used many different papers and elements:

Brown and off white Background is Shabby Princess Holiday Joy
Pink Panel background and tab are from Gina Cabrera 's Shabby Shack Mega Kit
Journaling block and leaves are Ronna Penner from her retired Autumn Magic kit
Staples by Me, Susan Pacillo
Fonts: Century Gothic, Carpenter and Mail Stamp

Next up is Karen's adorable layout! I really had to laugh outloud when I read her journaling because it's so darn honest and so true!! My daughter would have done exactly the same thing, and I would have felt the same way Karen did about getting up all night long to blow her nose!! LOL!! The alpha is wonderful and the photo, as always, is perfect!!!!
Journaling = You got a sick last Friday and that’s when you began waking us up several times during the night; one reason was because you wanted to blow your nose. So we decided to let you have a Kleenex box with you when you slept and we told you that you could just dump it on the floor after you are done because we didn’t want to we woken up just to retrieve a snotty tissue and we know that foreign things with you while you sleep easily bother you. We had no idea that there would be a mountain of tissues like this greeting us!

Scraplift #37 is Michelley-Jelly!!

I was surfing the DST gallery for two hours trying to find a lift for today. It's amazing - there are SOOOO MANY wonderful layouts that I have been having an increasingly harder and harder time finding a layout that I find catches my eye! The amount of talent out there in the gallery world is simply amazing!!!

So what made me pick this one over all the other divine layouts I saw? Here are some reasons why I think this layout is so wonderful and why I think it should be lifted:

1. The pictures have a sweet luminescence to them - they just glow
2. I love the font work
3. The tasteful use of doodles
4. The rounded corners on the outside edges only
5. That ADORABLE dinosaur cartoon!!!
6. the star background that gives visual interest and texture but doesn't take it over!
7. Ok, this one's very subjective, but when I was growing up all I wanted to be was an archaeologist, so the subject matter captured my heart! LOL!!

Will you dig for buried treasure with me and lift this wonderful layout this week and let me share it next week? I can't wait to see what everyone does for this very versatile layout!!!

Here we go with the lifts! This one is mine and I played around with this for nearly FIVE days trying to find the perfect papers and doodles! I am so happy with the way this one came out!! Credits: I used:
Shabby Princess:
Flower from Studio Chic
Backgrounds from Wishy Washy

This one is by princessj0yce. She always has such cute photos - and this layout is no different. What I really like about this one is how she used such pretty and muted colors to let the bold reds show in her picture. I love the flower and the doodles are wonderful too!

This adorable layout is from Liza. The pictures are so cute!! I Love the way she tied in the tree and the snowflakes and the great color combinations!

This super cute layout is by Karen. I really love her color sense and my favorite color combo lately is pink and browns, so I was drawn to this as well because of the colors. The journaling is so cute and I love the main photo of her "reading".

Scraplift #36 is Angela Powers and is OH SO SWEET!! UPDATED

I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this layout of Angela's!! I saw it's thumbnail in the gallery and I had to see what it was all about. The picture makes it tremendous, but just the sweet little journaling and the angled torn papers turn this from a good layout to a great one!! I especially like the doodle swirls that look like it could be ribbons or it could be a doodle and the little flowers and the ribbon! I am going to have a lot of fun doing this one and I hope you join me!

You can leave Angela some lovin' here:

Sweet Baby Kisses

I read further in Angela's description and saw that it was a lift of Melissa's sweet little layout too!! I can't wait to see what other interpretations come out of this and Melissa's!

Here's the original layout:

you can leave her some love too here:


On to the lifts!!!! I was so happy to see so many of you do the lift with me!!!

Here's mine:

I went really bold with this one - and Shabby Princess's Studio Chic is the perfect Kit for bold yet still so beautiful!!!

This is a layout for my sister in law Ann Marie. She has three boys and she has had a really rough life. I just wanted to let her know how much she's loved and admired for her strength in raising her boys in such a tumultuous life...

My FIL was here and let me download some pictures of the family and these were in his bunch!

tears by Atomic Cupcake

This sweet layout is by Rachel.

I have to admit I had a little tear in my eye when I saw her little baby boy sick! She did a great job making the layout just great!! I love how she framed the picture area with a big messy stitched frame! The colors are bold and fun and journaling so touching! Great layout on such a hard subject!

Credits: Journaling reads: Poor little dude! You have been so sick since you started going to daycare. It makes me feel awful, but you love going anyway! Pink eye was particularly bad because you couldn't open your eyes in the morning and really got scared.

This one is from Jen Caputo!

This one made me smile when I saw it - I think that picture is just in my top 10 delightful pictures of Moms and babies!

The colors are so bright and bold and I love the stitching! It really makes the layout so textural. I think I love most the tiny touches that she put in - the tiny "BLESSED" circle, the tab, the hat pin, the eyelets!!

She says this about her layout: I took this pic of my best friend and her baby this past week and when I saw the layout Susan had chosen for the digi lift this week I had to play along!!!

Everything is from Holly McCaig's A Colorful Fall kit available at PDW except the alpha and paint brushes which are by Michelle Coleman and the swirly shape brushes which are by Shawna Clingerman.

This sweet layout comes from Mary.

I really love that picture and how sweet they both look! My favorite part of this layout is the element cluster - the way she used different pieces and pasted them on a journaling badge and then tying it with the hat pin. Very sweet colors! Great Job Mary!
