Saturday Scraplift: Graphic and Grunge

Hello! I am very excited to share this week’s Saturday Scraplift with you all. As soon as I found this gem of a page in the gallery, I knew I had to lift it. The combination of graphic brushes and grungy accents were just too perfect. I also loved the memory that she captured. I’m not going to ask how many of you remember pay phones but it totally got me thinking about them and how I used to see them on every corner. Just the perfect page! So our starting point this week is Payphone by Rache77.

And here are the pages that Rachel inspired. First up, Brenda (bbe) not only used a similar design, but she also had a great phone story to share.  Love the blended background she achieved and that starburst brush is a great subtle accent.redphonebox2Artsy Grunge Clusters No1, Taped Together Edges No.4, Deleen Scrapbook Element Pack, ARToptions Neutrals Paper Pack No. 02, File Tab Words: Fall No. 01,Star Glows Brushes and Stamps No. 02, Calne Paint, Torn Classic White Photo Frames No. 01,  Thin Classic Photo Frames Curled and Flat No. 01, Looking for Love Element Pack, Artistry de Sol Kit (alpha), Blendable Journalers No. 01, Splatters Brushes and Stamps No. 05, Page Blends No. 05

Next up is Sara (sarahorton) who followed the general layout of the page and then used a big brush of the State Seal of Texas to accent her design. I love the elemental details she used to accent her photo.

And here’s my take on the challenge this week. I muted the colors of my photo and played with lots of grunge (which I love) along with some graphic brushes to accent my daughter’s fierce competition face.

DesignerDigitals Hot Page of the Week, August 29, 2015

I adore this page by Arte Banale! The beautiful color in the background compliments her photo perfectly and all the accents let you know that we are looking at a ballerina warming up to perform in the city. A photo story to share and to treasure. Well done!

Itunes August Scrapbook Challenge

Greetings from a {not very} sunny England for our August iTunes Challenge!
This month I’ve gone a little arty and modern all at once. Its certainly outside my comfort zone – but that’s good for you right? 😉

Here’s our starting point –

Screen Shot 2015-08-21 at 19.17.52

AND not only am I outside my comfort zone but the picture I had in my head of the type of page I would make…. nope, made nothing like it! LOL Best thing to do, in my opinion, is to follow your mojo wherever its going!

Katie has a great freebie for you to think about including —- super iTunes freebie.

Lets see what the Creative Team conjured up for me to share with you –

Check our our lovely Mollie’s page. Mollie – aka Readstoomuch – has made a wonderful Grandchild page full of love and cuddles :)
with_you4How beautiful and soft is that?

Wendy – aka Wendymck- went all graphic design and super cool with her page. Love this very much!

And here is my page, featuring a very intense stare from my beloved Hugo Cat that cannot be misread as anything other than FEED ME. I get this look many many times a day 😉

feedthecatitunesweb

Can you see how far apart our pages are, despite starting from the same jumping off point? I hope we inspire you to all leap out of that comport zone and run with this one!

Please put your iTunes page in the iTunes Gallery here, and be sure to let us know in the August challenge posts.
See you in September :)

This page by Hillarey is so awesome in so many ways! I love all the photos she included, a good amount of journaling to tell the story and the accents show the great energy in the memory! Faqbulous!
