Scraplifting is one of the best ways to showcase your favorite pictures in style. By borrowing the design elements and ideas of others, you can create beautiful scrapbook layouts, even if your own experience is limited. Although it involves stealing the ideas of others, the scrapbooking community generally welcomes this habit.
There are many people who would like to take up the scrapbooking hobby, but they just don’t know where to start. Scrapblifting is one of the best ways to get started. By borrowing the design elements and ideas of more experienced crafters, novices can easily put together attractive layouts. As they gain more experience, it’s easier to start integrating the ideas of others with their own, or mixing and matching elements from different layouts they like. Eventually, this experience will help people new to this hobby to start coming up with their own original designs.
One of the most popular venues to get inspiration is magazines. Take a look at your local library or book store – there are many different magazines dedicated to this hobby. Many of these publications receive submissions from scrapbook enthusiasts, and from these submissions, they pick the best ones to feature in their magazines. By copying the ideas in these magazines, your layouts are sure to look their best.
One downside to these types of publications is that they tend to be expensive. However, there are many places where you can get ideas and inspiration for free. If you have any friends that scrapbook, ask to take a look at their albums. In addition, you should be able to find local groups or clubs that meet on a regular basis to work on projects together and otherwise share their love for this hobby.
Another great place for scraplifting ideas is the world wide web. There are thousands of people that take pleasure in showing off their layouts on personal blogs. Many of them provide complete material lists, as well as step by step instructions, for putting together reproductions of their works. In addition to personal blogs, many companies that provide scrapbooking supplies also have blogs that introduce new products and show ways to use their products in different projects.
Message boards also provide another source of inspiration. Like blogs, many people post pictures of their creations on message boards, with instructions and material lists. When you join a message board, you can also post questions or comments regarding the layouts you like.
Scraplifting is a good way for novices to learn this hobby, as well as for experienced scrapbookers to come up with new ideas.
