Marsha Farris: Scrap Lift It!
Memory-keeping inspiration can be found in a variety of places. The project I’m sharing today was scrap lifted from a 12×12 layout by Christine using the Bookish collection titled “my favorite escape.” I loved the design and thought it would work well for a spread in my Dandelion Wishes Simple Dori created with the Dandelion Wishes Collection.
To begin the layout, I printed a photo taken on a recent walk. I rotated the layout design and trimmed a green patterned paper from the Dandelion Wishes Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit to span across both pages. I liked the grid pages in the Dandelion Wishes Simple Dori that featured a dandelion in the corner and thought it went well with my spring layout. I followed the sketch by adding the title and journaling in a block below my photo. Next, I embellished the page with die cuts and wood veneer pieces from the Dandelion Wishes Modern Memory Keeping Kit.
For the other side of the spread, I selected a 3×4 card from the Dandelion Wishes Modern Memory Keeping Kit and trimmed it into a tag shape. I stapled some patterned paper to the top for a bit of extra interest and added a sticker from the Dandelion Wishes Memory Keeping Sticker Kit to the bottom. Next, I stamped a dandelion from the Dandelion Wishes Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit stamp set onto white cardstock, trimmed it out, and added it behind one of the film strip die cuts. It was the perfect layer behind the spring tag.
Next, I added a die-cut label and a butterfly to embellish the area at the bottom of the page. I also added a rub on and did some stamping with Dandelion WIshes Memory Keeping Stamp Sets. To complete the project, I added black ink splatters to a few areas of the layout.
This Simple Dori spread came together quickly, using Christine’s layout for inspiration! Happy creating!
