Hello friends! Today is the first of five Fridays where my friends Christy, Hannah, Megan and I will share videos on our YouTube channels for our new series called Mojo Busters. Each week we will have a different challenge that each of us has come up with and we will all take on that challenge. The four of us met through the scrapbooking community and have become really good friends. We we all chatting one day and talking about our Scrappy Mojo, and the fact that it isn’t always present when we need or would like it to be. We all have very different life situations, however we have one thing in common, we are extremely busy. We know there are a lot of you out there who are too and a little helpful inspiration always comes in handy.
This first week we are taking on Christy’s challenge, to scraplift ourselves. I think this is a great way to get your mojo going. If something has worked for you in the past, why not try to recreate it. This is the layout that I made about a month ago that I will be scraplifting. It’s pretty recent but I love it and I knew I wanted to recreate it.
I am scrapbooking a photo on my boyfriend and I. It was taken on a weekend getaway to Atlantic City earlier this year. First, I decided on a collection. For my original layout I drew my colors and inspiration from the We R Memory Keepers Urban Chic Collection. For this scraplift I chose to use the MME On Trend 2 Collection. I began the same way I did with the original layout, I sprayed my Shimmerz Paints Mists in the center area of a piece of White AC Textured Cardstock. Once I got the color combination how I liked it, I added some stamping with a Prima Script Stamp and Jet Black Staz On Ink. Then I added some texture with a Dina Wakely stencil and Modeling paste.
I layered my embellishments and photo in a diagonal design just like the original layout. Going from the top right to the bottom left. This is definitely a go-to design for me. I used embellishments from the MME collection.
I used the ephemera pack, stickers, flair badges and the acrylic words, one of which was part of my tittle. I used some tiny word phrase stickers from the Maggie Holmes Gather Collection and some orange and pink letter stickers from the Basic Grey B-Side Collection. I also used one of the Pearl Word thickers from the Paige Evans and Pink Paislee Take me Away Collection.
Here is a side by side look at both layouts. They’re so different yet so similar.
I am really happy with how it turned out. This proves that if something worked once it will most likely work again. This was a great challenge.
