Week-at-a-Glance is underway!

KPertiet_WeekataGlance2014-SUNPREV

Day ONE is done!

But if you haven’t started you can still join in! Just go Monday to Monday or Tuesday to Tuesday! You get the idea! No rules, just documenting!

Lots of people say there’s not enough going on in their days to participate. Stop right there! As an empty nester myself, I am right there with you! Probably even more so! There’s no office to go to. No watercooler to hang out at. No coworkers to go out to lunch with… Randy and I lunch at home ;) But there’s still life being lived and that’s good enough for me and should be good enough for you too!

Think about what you watch on the TV
Do you start your day with the TODAY show or GMA? Then grab a screen grab from their website and include that!
Is there a series you’re hooked on? Do a Google image search for a graphic or even take a picture of your TV screen! I do that more than I’d like to admit!

Are reading a book? magazines? blogs?
Include those to give insight into your interests.

Is there a social media site you spend time at? DesignerDigitals perhaps?!
Again, I go to the ever popular, screen grab! Makes it so easy to show what you’re up to!

Are you working out? Going to a gym?
Doesn’t mean you have to be all awkward and take a picture in class. What about just taking a picture of your gym shoes, your yoga mat, your headphones.

Simple images tell the story just as well, if not better, as the action shots of everyone “doing” something. Keep that in mind as you go through the week!

Check out Kelly‘s pages, Linda‘s and Kayleigh‘s! Just a few team members joining in!

Looking forward to seeing how you how document your week!

Week-at-a-Glance Starts Tomorrow!

KPertiet_WeeklyJournalersNo2-Dates

DesignerDigitals’ Week-at-a-Glance starts tomorrow! Are you in?

This project is an opportunity to document the little details of your life that often get overlooked in your scrapbook pages. Why bother? To tell the story of you and your family, that’s why! Wouldn’t you like to know more about the daily ins and outs of your parents’, grandparents or even great grandparents lives? You are creating a treasure. A keepsake. Documenting to be remembered.

Here are just a few ideas to get you thinking:

What time do you wake up?
take a photo of your alarm clock, screen grab your smartphone with time, use a graphic like the On the Hour Stamps

What do you eat for breakfast?
Photograph the prepared meal, maybe the ingredients, the process, your family enjoying it together or maybe it’s the newspaper and a cup of coffee

Where do you go from here?
work? prep for school? workout? back to sleep ;) ?

Continue with this throughout the day! Including things like filling up with gas: how much did it cost? Grocery shopping: what’s on your list? What happens after school? After work?

It’s about you. It’s about your family. It’s about your life.
Just keep going and after just 7 days you will have a treasure!

We have Week-at-a-Glance Templates to get you started as well as some documenting stamps! See the Week-at-a-Glance Products.

Be inspired to document your memories here, at DesignerDigitals!

Saturday Scraplift: Across with style

Hi, it’s Lynn here and my pick for this week’s Saturday Scraplift inspiration is a bold and beautiful page by DeLisa with a design that spreads across the page in style.

I love the mix of bright patterned papers, especially contrasted with the cool grey of the background. And the perfect placement of the little fish and the little phrase strips finish it off fabulously.

LL-_DLK_Dinner_at_Coastal_Flats_with_Mom_Manny_and_Tony_webThere’s so much inspiration here.

In Elisabeth’s beautiful lift she chose a great background paper and pulled the color from the photo for the messy watercolor paint that perfectly ties everything together.

Home Decor Challenge: Sketchy

Happy Hump Day All! Hillarey here with another installment of the Home Decor Challenge. This months challenge has a sketchy monochromatic feel! The wall paper in this space is very striking, especially with the bright yellow sunshine peeking out from behind the fun sketchy mountains and I love the wooden accent pieces! Sam, Lori S, and Debi (Beehive50) have created some wonderful pages to get you inspired.

Sketchy InspirationSam’s page is about her  sweet newly born granddaughter, their first girl!!! The photograph is so precious but Sam’s journaling is what really draws you in, such wonderful heartfelt words about generations, love and anticipation. Sam took her inspiration from the monochromatic colors and the yellow circles of the inspiration photo but kept her page light to showcase her beautiful granddaughter!

Sam's PageThe products Sam used: Stitching Holes No.02 Brushes and Stamps, Arrow Flairs Value Pack No. 01, Flossy Stitches: Orange, Malene Scrapbook Kit, Striping Graphic Brushes and Stamps No. 03, Washi Tapes: Whites No. 01

Lori’s page is absolutely wonderful. Her daughter has so much personality here; these pictures were made for this challenge! Lori’s inspiration is reflected by the sketchy papers, the Nelean papers (these papers are the perfect colors for this challenge) and her perfectly positioned wood veneer elements.Loris pageLori used: Arctic Whites No1, Banner Labels No2, Classic Stamped Photo Frames No1, Curated Studio Mix No1, Maybe Not Kit, Rimmed Framers No2, Simple Collage Frames No3, Thicker Inked Words No. 11, Wood Veneer Words No. 12, Wood Veneer hearts No. 03, Worth Repeating No. 29, Yellow Black and Creme Kit, Dara Kit, Fiske Kit, Nelean Papers,
Paleo Kit, Readymade Borders Neutral No. 02, Readymade Journalers life Cards No. 01.

Debi’s page is about her daughters adventures in college! She perfectly used the Sumi Twists and Wood Veneer car to reflect the crazy circles they drove in trying to find parking on the campus, only to find out the next day that she had to pay for parking after all! I love how Debi used the Sumi Twists (sketchy), the wood veneer’s and the Striping Geo Clusters as her inspiration!

Debi's PageDebi used: Curated Studio Mix Scrapbooking Kit No. 15, Striping Geo Clusters Brushes and Stamps No. 01, Sumi Twists Brushes and Stamps No. 01, Wooden Arrows No. 02, Wood Veneer Symbology No. 01, Fine Lines Page Titles No. 19 Brushes and Stamps
