September 2011 Challenge - "SCRAPLIFT" (winner announced)


The winner of our September Scrapmatts Challenge is Tarrah McLean  with 'A Dream ia a Wish your Heart Makes' .

Accepted and even encouraged throughout scrap booking communities, scrap lifting is the act of borrowing, or lifting, ideas and designs from somebody else's already created layout to use on your personal pages. As long as you're not submitting the layout for publication, claiming it as your own and accepting payment for it, it's okay to scrap lift for personal use. Common courtesy dictates that if you submit the page into an online member's gallery, that you give credit to the original artist and explicitly state that your page is a scrap lift of theirs. Many artists feel flattered when another scrapper duplicates their pages. Imitation is, after all, the highest form of flattery. Individual scrapbookers are part of a larger community that is always happy to provide inspiration and encouragement.


Believe it or not, it is also possible to scrap lift yourself. As you grow and learn more about the art of scrap booking you will inevitably begin to develop your personal style as well as discover new tips and tricks along the way. Look back at layouts you made a year ago and consider what you would do differently now to improve them. Using those new ideas, create a brand new page with more up to date photos.


So our September Challenge is to Scraplift a layout/card or OTP from the members gallery.


I asked the DT to Scraplift members from our Scrapmatts gallery. These were the layouts completed by our amazing and talented DT.


Anne Patterson who has  lifted "I Love How" by Kim Ewin 


(out for publication) 

Kim Kendell who has scraplifted "Bare Foot" by Lindy Gillispie




Sonia Thompson who scraplifted Renea Harrison’s layout ‘True Beauty’ on pg 10 in the gallery.




Cathy Cafun who scraplifted Kim Ewins "Always Have Fun" on pg 11 in the gallery.





and last but not least my scraplift of Ebony van der Starre's "Sunshine and Lollipops"on

pg 64 in the gallery.



To be eligible, your creation MUST also have Scrapmatts on it.  

The prize will be a $25.00 Scrapmatts gift voucher.

Members need to upload their entry into the normal gallery and just call it 'September Challenge' and we will move it into an album.

Creations must be uploaded into the gallery by the end of the month.

Goodluck and happy scrapping from the Scrapmatts Team!!
