Lifting An Old Page

Lifting An Old Page

Have you ever lifted one of your old pages? It's fun and we should do it more often! After all, if you are starting with a page you love, you will probably like the lift! Some page designs just feel right and should definitely be repeated.

The 2010 Page

Back in 2010, I made this page about finances for a digital scrapbooking journaling challenge. It's one of those pages that came together effortlessly. That's how I know it's my style. Simple, linear designs work for me. They're easy to put together and this page was especially easy because I started with a template. It was simply a matter of clipping papers and adding a few finishing touches.

The 2016 Page

Blocked pages designs are still popular today - maybe even more so! I love that the design has held up over the years. Simple blocked designs are a classic for a reason. Here's my new 2016 page, inspired by the 2010 page:

To bring this page into 2016, I only had to make some minor adjustments. I changed the alignment of the design, centering the kraft mat on the page which is more in keeping with my current preferences. I lightened the background paper too. These days I like plain backgrounds, but the light gray stripes are very subtle. For the title, I chose a simple typed font rather than an alpha. Over the years, I have mostly moved away from alphas. Finally, I added bigger clusters this time, with more elements in them.

But the overall design is clearly based on the 2010 page - and I was even able to keep the kraft mat. I'm declaring this a successful lift!
