June 2019 Main Challenge
FAVORITE & SCRAPLIFT YOURSELF


The beautiful month of June is now upon us and, with it, 
here is a brand new main challenge here at More Than Words!

We hope that you will enjoy it and play along in large numbers!!!

Our Main Challenge is based on a word inspiration and a creative challenge.

Word Inspiration - FAVORITE
Creative Challenge - SCRAPLIFT YOURSELF

What does the word FAVORITE inspire you to create?
You can choose to use the actual word somewhere on your project 
or simply be inspired by it. Please explain in your blog post 
how it inspired you if it isn't obvious in your work.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens - are these a few of your favorite things? As an extention to our word inspiration this month, we want you to find a favorite old project of your own and SCRAPLIFT YOURSELF! You can copy the design, the colours or any part of the project, so long as the project was created by you. Please share the original project in your post so we can see both the original and the scraplifted pieces.



Please check out all our challenge rules in the RULES tab above.


Now let's see what our fabulous DT has come up with, 
inspired by the FAVORITE & SCRAPLIFT YOURSELF main challenge!

Alicja: For this challenge, I decided to SCRAPLIFT my old layout named 'Breathe In'. The new one is also about nature. I used my FAVORITE natural elements to take you on a creative journey in the Summer forest.

Anat: I've always liked the vintage style, but I believe now that this has become my FAVORITE style. I decided to SCRAPLIFT an old layout that I love and which is actually one of my favorites. I've created it more than a year ago and wanted to see if now, after gaining a bit more experience, I would do it better or just different. I think the original layout is still my favorite.

Caroline: My FAVORITE music group is without a doubt Simple Plan, so I picked a picture of them to make my project. I also used one of my favorite past layouts to COPY/SCRAPLIFT myself.

Daisy: For this challenge, I chose my favorite layout of the moment to SCRAPLIFT. I was inspired for my new creation by a picture of my FAVORITE niece. She's so adorable and photogenic.

Daria: I decided to SCRAPLIFT a project that I did a year and a half ago that I really enjoyed creating. It includes a lot of my FAVORITE scrapbooking styles and elements. In my new layout, I added pictures of the same girl, only older. I decided that it would be symbolic and a great way to document special memories.

Di: The word inspiration inspired me to use some of my most FAVORITE goodies in my craft stash that I have been saving and coveting for some time now. It is a bit liberating when you finally do. For the creative challenge, I SCRAPLIFTED one of my older layouts that I have always loved the composition of; however, as always, I believe when you do something the second time around, you are always able to improve on it.

Edith: Inspired by this month's word and creative challenge, I chose to COPY one of my favorite creations made 1 year ago. This new layout illustrates one of my FAVORITE pictures of my godchild who I love so much!

France: A friend of mine actually loved one of my older beach themed layouts and asked me to make her one for her 30th wedding anniversary trip to Bora Bora. It was so much fun SCRAPLIFTING and recreating this layout. I used similar colours, I added the pink to highlight the tropical paradise scene. Bora Bora is my ultimate FAVORITE dream vacation. For certain, it's high on my travel wish list!



original

Heather: This is one of my FAVORITE photos from our recent trip to Mexico. Our daughter was having such a great time swimming in the cenotes. I found a fave older layout to SCRAPLIFT. I used the same circle effect and banners, but I changed it up a bit, particularly around the edges of the page.



original
new
Hina: Inspired by the blessings and beauty of nature, I created this layout where I SCRAPLIFTED from one of my FAVORITE layouts from the past. I copied the mixed media design and the nature theme.



original
new
Jess: I decided to SCRAPLIFT a layout that I created about a year ago when I first started scrapping again. I added lots more dimension to my layers. I also chose to scrap another photo of my fur baby, Betty, wearing a flower crown as these are among my most FAVORITE pictures of her!



original
new
Mary: I chose to SCRAPLIFT my fave canvas which I made about a year ago. I used a different photo, but I kept the same design and colour palette as it's one of my FAVORITE colour combos.



original
new
Nicole: I thought long and hard about this month's word inspiration and how I wanted to represent it in my project. There were so many ways to go, but I finally decided to use a photo of one of my FAVORITE fictional characters of all time, Anne of Green Gables, definitely a favorite in Eastern Canada where I live. This particular depiction of Anne (with an E) is from the most recent TV version of this story, which I absolutely love. I decided to SCRAPLIFT the design and selfie theme of the very first project that I created for More Than Words, back in January 2016.

Nuneka: The original layout is my favorite among all the ones I've done. It's dedicated to my FAVORITE band, U2, using photographs of their video clip, Invisible. Keeping the theme with the chains and central cluster, I COPIED this layout to make a new one also dedicated to U2, this time using the cover photo of one of their albums.

Priya: FAVORITE is something close to my heart... and my original project is just that! I participated in an exhibition, my first, and this layout was the most appreciated one. It also got sold which was quite unexpected. The new project is not just a SCRAPLIFT, but I copied my favorite layout using the same background paper, colour combination and overall look.



original
new
Rosalie: One of my FAVORITE things to do is to explore nature. That is why both my projects have a natural element to them. My SCRAPLIFTED layout is based on a page I did last year of a trip down a snow covered lane. I loved using chipboard foliage, so I changed the position of the main feature and colour palette for my new project.

What wonderful creations from out DT this month!
With the original and scraplifted pieces, you got double the inspiration.
