Saturday Scraplift: Playing with Patterned Paper

Happy Saturday! Excited to share this week’s lift with everyone! I loved this page by Melanie (Britgirl) that showcases her rarely photographed daughter with her boyfriend. Anyone else relate to older teens having no interest in being photographed? I sure can! But thankfully, Mel was given permission and scrapped this photo beautifully. I was really drawn to the two patterned background (hence this week’s blog title) but as usual, she also used bits, baubles and ephemera perfectly. So there’s lots of inspiration to be had and every one of us who lifted this, landed on a different theme which is so cool!


Up first is Merrilee (digigrandma) with a fun unknown ancestors page. Love the pops of yellow on her vintage background and soft brushwork.

Jana went with a completely different vibe with her fun concert page of her daughter and girlfriends hitting up Taylor Swift! How lucky were they? Love the bright colors, split background and pops of black.

Audrey (Adrianita) kept to her soft color palette style but still mixed up her backgrounds and even split them horizontally instead of vertically. I just love the popcorn accents!

Finally, here’s my (wendymck) page. Scrapping a birthday photo of my daughter who actually enjoys her photo being taken (ha!) from last December. Kept with the split background and used bits of clusters here and there.
