Lift Challenge: Jackie George!

Hi all! This week we've been scrap-lifting member layouts, and I picked Jackie George to lift!
Here is her layout:

I love the strips and all the scattered sequins! Also, I love the little clusters of embellies around the photos - so cute!

For my take on this layout, I used the Tea for Two kit. This has been my very favorite kit to date. And as I sit here writing this, I know my new Early Autumn kit is "out for delivery" and will be on my doorstep in just a few hours. And I'm so excited to crack that little baby open! But I must say, I am so sad to move Tea for Two out of it's little special spot on my desk for current kits. Sad indeed. So sad that I might not. I might just have to keep pulling from that one for a while...

But I digress.

We are here for a scraplift, and here it is!

I copied all the strips Jackie used - a great way to get rid of scraps, by the way! I just notched the ends and stitched them onto the base. This added a whole lotta dimension just right there!

Then I added a couple of cards from my Daily Diary kit as a background for the photos. From there I just kept layering and layering, trying to stay true to where Jackie had her layers and clusters around her photos.

This is kind of  an unofficial title. It's in a different cluster than Jackie has hers, but I just couldn't find the perfect thing for a title in that spot. I love how these two pieces sit above the stitched pieces, and the confetti fell so nicely around them. How perfect is it that the card pack in the Daily Diary kit had that cute little envelope of confetti?! Lucky me!

I had to steal a couple of little things from my stash - this "love this" sticker from the Shimelle sticker pack, a little type-written sticker, and the "remember" is from a roller stamp I got a million years ago. I love the look of stamping off!

 The last little cluster Jackie had was at the top right of the page. I just cut down a tag from the kit, layered a couple of stickers, and stitched the whole thing to the page. Easy peasy.

And that's my scraplift! Thanks for the inspiration, Jackie - love your layout!
Have a great HUMP DAAAAAAY everyone!
