Saturday Scraplift: Look out behind

This week’s inspiration is a bold page by Susan about a no-good, bad, awful week.

Bad_weekFirstly, I love that she scrapped it!

And, secondly, I love the way she used the glittery splatters and watery splashes behind the photo to back up a page about gritty spray. Brilliant! I love that bold black background with the contrast of the green epoxy as well.

You can easily see how I was inspired in my lift:

sat-scrap-musicalCredits: Two Tone Paperpack, Gloria Kit, Garden Mystery Kit, and Purple Fever Kit (button recolored) by Lynn Grieveson. ARTPack Botanicals brush by Katie Pertiet.

Sam was inspired to create a fun sports page with a bold green background:

JAMIE_FIRST_SOCCER_Credits: Date Blocks brushes and stamps, Worth Repeating No.27, Capped Sentiment No.01, Scripted Story Circles Love by Katie Pertiet

And Mollie went with a watery mask behind her adorable photo, also in green backing up her Spring theme:

farm_with_calvesCredits:Watery Photo Masks 1, Typed and Scripted Spring, Inked Shapes No.01, Fastened Frames No.04, Forever Mine mini-kit, Farmer Joe mini-kit, Riley worn paperpack  by Lynn Grieveson.

I hope you’ll  be inspired to “look out behind” and embellish behind your photo. If you are, post in the Saturday Scraplift gallery to share.

DesignerDigitals Is Celebrating 10 Years Strong!

DD-Challenge-BlogGraphic
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DESIGNERDIGITALS!

It’s hard to believe, but DesignerDigitals, the best scrapbooking site ever, is turning 10 on April 1st. Congratulations to Katie and Randy for creating such a warm and welcoming community full of inspiration, innovation, and artistry. We’re all the recipients of their hard work, and we wish them many more years of success.

To celebrate DesignerDigitals’ birthday, we have some exciting activities planned:
10 fun challenges with winners receiving a one-time $10 store coupon and a grand finale challenge whose winner will receive a $10 store coupon for TEN weeks.
Because these challenges come with their own prizes, participation in them does not count toward the rewards program.

When a new challenge begins, the leader of that challenge will announce it in the forum, and you will have two days to complete the challenge before a random winner is selected. Here is the schedule for the challenges we’ve planned for you:

Friday, March 27
Post links to your 10 favorite kits in the forum thread – led by Merr (digigrandma)
Scrap the number 10 – led by Kim (KimR+)

Saturday, March 28
Scrap a page using 10 different alphas – led by Chrissy (kikimama)
Scrap a page using 10 words in your journaling – led by Brenda (bbe)

Sunday, March 29

Tuesday, March 31

Post links to your 10 favorite brush sets in the forum thread – led by Lindsay (bessysue581)

Are you in scrapping heaven yet?
There is a special gallery in which you can post the pages you create for the challenges. Make sure to title your page with the challenge so that the leader can easily identify it.

Put your party hat on, and scrap, scrap, scrap! Good luck, everyone!

Prompted Challenge: I would rather…

Hello everyone! Today’s challenge focuses on journaling, and we have a fun freebie (linked below) to help you get your words on paper.

Do you ever search for the best way to describe how strongly you feel about something? Or does it ever surprise you how much your tastes can differ from a close family member or your best friend? Today, we want you to use the power of comparison to highlight those preferences! Whether you make it silly or serious, I bet it will be interesting for you to fill in the phrase:

“I would rather _____ than _____”

The journal prompt inspired three of the Creative Team members to focus completely on the story, and we all ended up with photo-less pages!

Britgirl created this page to explain her love for good coffee – and even the colors make me wish for a cup of good coffee myself.

teaandcoffeeweb

To make her scrumptious page, Britgirl used Espresso Mini KitSymbology PostageStrips No. 01Morning Brushes and StampsJust Linens Paper Pack No. 60Watery Brushes and Stamps No. 03Wax Seals No. 01Make Your Own Postmarks Pack, collageable pieces 3 (coming soon) and the journaling challenge freebie.

mugsbigsis created this gorgeous page to document a few of her preferences – and I think her love of dogs is all the more obvious for the comparisons she uses.

mugsbigsis used Dog Park Kit, L’Automne Kit, Lakeland Scrapbooking Kit, Iconic Spots No.1, Assorted Messy Stitches: White No.1.Hawkstone Kit, Just Delicate Paper PackJust Linens LedinaReadymade Borders: New Years, Readymade Clusters: Neutrals and the freebie to make her very pretty page.

For my page, I decided to interview my family in a sort of round robin game, where they had to build off of what the person before them used. It was a lot of fun, and I could see using it to pass time on car trips in the future!

Mar 25 i would rather web

For my page, I used Aged Stripes Alphabet Brushes No. 02Striping Graphic Brushes and Stamps No. 02, Two Tone Paper Pack and the freebie.

There is a journal prompt freebie that you can download to help you use comparisons to tell your story. I hope that you can join in the challenge and share your page in the Scrapbook Challenge Gallery. Remember, if your page includes all DD products then it qualifies for the Rewards Program where you can earn discount coupons for the DD store – just link your page in the March Challenge Participation Sign In thread!
