Member Spotlight: Karen
DSP Member Spotlight for September is Fulltime RVer
The popular, multi-talented, Karen, says she likes simple designs and calm, neutral colors when she does layouts. “Now that I think about it, I feel the same way about the dulcimer music I play - I love the simple melodies and harmonies.”
Her inspiration comes from the places she goes and the people she meets.
“I love to find and share the interesting tidbits not found in the travel brochures and especially like to do pages that make people laugh.” Says Karen
She describes herself as: “Very, very blessed by a life overflowing with love, friendships, and adventures.”

What is SCRAPLIFTING?
A scraplift is basically the act of copying ideas and designs from another persons layout to use in your own pages. Designs or ideas can be copied in whole or in part - You can take the whole thing, or just some aspects of the layout, and use it to make your own.
You may not copy the persons layout picture, erase portions and submit it as a scraplift. The idea is not to erase bits of another persons layout, but to use it for inspiration - like a sketch. You create a layout using the original as a guide - using a kit (either the same one they used or a different one) and your photos and journaling.
In your description, give credit to the person and layout you scraplifted.
You cannot use a direct scraplift for a competition - why? Because if you both entered the same competition it would be obvious that the layout was a copy - and the judges my penalise you both - very unfair to the original artist.
When can you call it your own? When you have changed it SUBSTANTIALLY - I am not just talking about different photos and kit, I am talking about changing over one third of a layout - so it does not look like the original.
P.S. If your layout is not doing double duty you can post it in a number of different galleries aside from your own - but why not put your layout into the General Gallery for Challenges - lets fill it up the some gorgeous scraplifts!
