Scrap Lifting and Stacey Michaud

I make no bones about the fact that I love to scraplift. It has always been a way for me to jump start my creativity. Whether it's using a new technique, or the basic design or a total "lift" it just helps me get going. So I am always on the look out for layouts that I like, that speak to me...well not literally but you know what I mean. I save them to my computer, when I scrap I will pull up a design that I like and run with it. A couple of years ago I discovered the wonderful scrapbook designer Stacey Michaud. I love her work. Her attention to details and her use of white space and small photos. Not to mention she has two adorable kids. Of course my kids aren't little any more but that's ok. I look past the photos and just work with the design. Of course I always throw my own spin on it...so it isn't totally the same as Stacey's. So today I am posting a couple of layouts that I finished recently. Both of them were "lifts" of Stacey's. If copying is the highest form of flattery Stacey should be very flattered...I simply love her stuff!
My awesome sister sent me these AMAZING
strawberries for St. Patrick's Day...they were SO GOOD!

The title is what really spoke to me on this lift of Stacey's
it totally sums up Jason. I used it with 3 photos from
different years showing his "sunny smile"
I loved how Stacey got me to think outside the box on
this one. The embellishments were just too "western"
for my layout, so I used vintage buttons instead.


  1. Wow - you are scrapping up a storm!! All are wonderful!!!

  2. well, I love them! It is the coolest thing to see different interpretations of what you visualized! I am very honored that you would choose to lift me! You rocked these out!

  3. Love all three Kathy...the buttons are perfect for a LO about shirts!
