Scraplifting Weekend 5
Jacky is a self-proclaimed craft addict and creates some of the most amazing cards with multiple layers of papers, stamped images and embellishments. She's also a wonderful scrapbooker who uses lots of patterned paper, however she often starts with a cardstock background for her layouts. I chose this recent layout to scraplift because I had four food photos to scrap, three of them were somewhat darker than the other, and this layout design was perfect to accommodate that fact.
I also really like how Jacky used strips of the heart patterned paper as an element on the top right of her page. I found a text paper in my stash that had rows of spices in colors that worked with my photos, so I cut them apart and mimicked Jacky's design.
I included my journaling on a tag in the bottom left corner.
This layout came together fairly quickly, and I"m thrilled with how this design worked with my photos.
Thanks for the inspiration Jacky!
