What inspires you to scraplift?

The design of the layout?
The subject of the layout?
The colors?
A specific element/technique you just have to try?

What inspires you to scraplift most often?

I would say an element or technique and subject/theme.

I don't do digital, so I think it would be a lot harder to scraplift exact colors or designs.

I think sometimes I just see quotes or something that spark that lightbulb in my head:)

Either the LO or the technique.....

The technique or overall design is what inspires me. I love coming on here and seeing what you ladies have done. When I see all the LO getting done, that's also a big inspiration and gets me back on track when I lose focus.

The design of the layout is almost always what I lift! Or the title/quote/phrase. I love seeing new layout designs and it gives me something to go on. Most of my lifts and sketches end up getting away from me though. LOL

it could be anything. really, for me, it's about seeing something that is different from what i usually come up with ... branching out.

I agree. It's so helpful and inspiring to see others work. It helps me to think outside the box for my own work.

Generally a theme or a quote, something that I wouldn't use otherwise unless I saw it.

Usually it's the whole layout of the pics, embellishments, and paper. It's not the quotes or theme. I just usually make a sketch of it on my sketch pad. Biggrin

for me, it's something I find visually appealing. it's rarely the colors, it's more the layout of the overall page or a portion of it. like the soccer layout I did yesterday, totally lifted the squares and journaling layout with the patterned paper from one I saw in CK magazine.

I have a huge binder of layouts I've liked from both Creating Keepsakes and Scrapbooks Etc. This month's CK has a lot of great ideas!

I'm sort of the same way, it's more the design, or the title or quote for me. I'll have to look for this month's CK - we get them a bit later here in Canada, so I'll watch for it Smile

I usually scraplift layout arrangements. I get stuck sometimes in the same rut of how I arrange photos/elements -- especially with single photo layouts. It's really helpful to see how others get creative with theirs.

I think wordart downloads count as scraplifting, too. Guess I steal quotes that way. And I've got lots of those accumulated! Wink
