Copy the layout above to create a Scraplift Layout of your choice, using your own elements and images or if you use items from someone else - please credit them as I have done below.

Pressed flowers from Dozibaer - Her link is on the side bar

I "trace-painted" the centre picture of Violets using ART RAGE.

As always if you need help let me know by email.

The rest of the scrapping elements etc, were created in Paintshop Pro.

What is Scraplifting?
Scraplifting: Copying one or more design elements (title, page layout, etc.) from someone's layout and using it for your own scrapbook pages. Fairly common among scrappers, especially when suffering from Scrapper's Block. As the saying goes... "Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery."

Scraplifting Etiquette:
Personally I would not CASE a layout "Copy and Steal Everything"
Better to use a layout as an inspiration and then use your own ideas and scraps to make it your own.

Knitted Hedgehog

Knitted Hedgehog

The hedgehog was created from a tutorial which appears to no longer be available.

Use the knit stitch fill pattern to fill the shape of the hedgehog, then colourise.

Use the WARP tool to expand on the tummy and face and animal fur generator brush for the fur
