Join Us for a Week-at-a-Glance

Mark your Calendar!

KPertiet_WeeklyJournalersNo2-Dates

We are going to be scrapping the details of our days the week of September 28 thru October 4th. What does that mean exactly? Take a look at your days. Are there things you usually do at specific times every day? What’s your weekly grocery bill? What do you watch on TV? What are you cooking? Where are you going?

It’s like project 365 only in more detail. Why the detail? Wouldn’t you like to know what your grandmother or great grandmother’s days were like? What did she do with her time? Was she working? What did she cook? Where did she grocery shop? It’s little details but they give a priceless glance into your life. And that’s why we scrapbook, right? To preserve the memories. To document for future generations. To tell our story.

KPertiet_WeekataGlance-Products1

We have an assortment of Week-at-a-Glance products to make the undertaking a breeze! It includes pocket-style scrapbook templates in both 12×12 and letter-sized 8-1/2×11 formats as well as an assortment of stamps to assist in the documenting!

KPertiet_WeekataGlanceNo1PREV

And if your style is more scrappy, we’ve got that covered too! The Week-at-a-Glance Layered Templates No.1 include a timeline for listing out activitities, vintage photoframe clusters, stitched grids and decorative frames. All easily recolored.

Some of us will be gathering details that week and scrapping the pages the following week. Some of us will be scrapping each day as they wrap. Either way works!

Mark your calendar, grab the products and join us to Document the Details!

Saturday Scraplift Scrapbook Challenge: Sprinkles on the side

Hiya, Chrissy here. I loved the design of Rache77’s page as soon as I saw the thumbnail in the gallery. The colours worked so well with the photo. When I clicked on the page, I saw how Rachel’s great choice of elements added interest, I love the little flowers and jigsaw pieces scattered across the paint.

Three of our creative members were inspired by this great page. I adore Pam’s take on the challenge. The pink spotty paper picks up the colours in the photo, which is itself so sweet!

Sharon flipped the design to match her photo. I love the addition of the staples, and the balloons are so, so creative! Love it!

Wendy created this lovely page. Love the journalling beside the photo, and the silver glitter with these colours makes the whole page feel so fresh and vibrant!

Page Makeover Challenge: Switchback

When I am designing a page, I look at the photo and wonder what style of page would work with it. Artsy with lots of blending and fanciful blended layers or more fun with patterned paper and jam-packed with elements or possibly the simple, clean grid look with a focus on the journaling? Fortunately, the store is jam packed with such a variety of products for each style.

Sometimes after doing a page, I wonder what it would have looked like had I had gone in another direction. This is your chance to switch styles and change it up.

Choose a page that you think might work with an alternate style than what you originally chose. Use the photo and/or elements from that page and switch things. If you had an artsy page before, trying doing something with more elements and patterned paper.

I was never entirely happy with this page as I tried to use a mask to make it blended, but it didn’t seem to really work. So I’ve reworked it a little bit, and replaced the mask with a frame and some additional layers. I’m much happier with the makeover!

Original is on the left and the makeover on the right.

All About Me Scrapbooking Challenge: Comfort Level

Ready to add to that AAM book that we steadily collect pages for? This month, the challenge is to make a page documenting something that you’ve done that was out of your comfort zone. Did you plan it? Was it a dare? How did you feel once you did it? Katie has put together a freebie for you, too. Feel free to use it for the challenge if it inspires you.

Kim and Sam volunteered to help me with some inspiration pages documenting their own stories dealing with this topic.

If you play an instrument, and are like most people, you might have a fear of playing in front of an audience. Kim’s beautifully scrapped page tells the story of her calling.

09-14_Really-w

Kim used these supplies for her page: Arctic Whites No2, Assorted Messy Stitches No7, Basic Polka Dot Ribbons, Black Cream and Red Kit, Brilliant Life Add-on Paper pack, Bursting Words Brushes and Stamps, Chandra Element Pack, Clock Parts No7, December Foliage Tags Value Pack, Redwork Add-on Paper Pack, Red Work Paper Pack, Silver Glitter Splatters, Simply Moroccan Paper Pack, Star Glows Brushes and Stamps, Vintage Christmas Paper Pack

Sam had quite the adventure concerning her “comfort zone.”  It involved her passion for photography, reality TV, and sharks!

aam_sep

Sam’s supply list looks like this: Minimal Alpha Circles Brushes and Stamps, Bold Sentiments Brushes and Stamps No11, Blendables Layered Template No 40.

Although I don’t usually have any trouble talking, doing it in front of a large group of people is a different thing altogether. My comfort zone becomes very defined when faced with this sort of thing.

ComfortZoneWeb

Here’s my supply list: Brielle Add-on Paper Pack, Blendable Template No46, Painted Botanicals Paper Pack, Stem Friends Kit, Thin Classic Frames No2

I hope this challenge inspires you to document something that you have experienced. If you would like to share, we would love to see your page in the AAM gallery.  If you use all DD supplies on your page, it qualifies for the Rewards Program so be sure and post a link in the September Challenge Participation Thread.

Happy Scrapping!

Saturday Scraplift: Lost in Translation

Welcome to this week’s Saturday Scraplift Challenge! This week we are lifting the ‘Lost in Translation’ layout by dfwest. The page’s composition is what initially caught my eye. Then I looked closer and it was even more intriguing. The layout contains blended layers and integrates elements expertly. There are so many different facets to this page. So I invite you to get a little lost with this layout and translate the inspiration as you wish!

Lost_in_TranslationFirst up is Kelly, (Mugsbigsis). Kelly utilized many of the same features as the original layout such as the leading lines, banner and sea motif. She also incorporated personal touches and unique elements such as the adorable dolphins to make this gorgeous layout all her own!

Fog1Kelly’s products: Painted Bursts No.1, Fresh Vintage: Albia Solids Paper Pack, Grungy Ledger Grids Brushes and Stamps No. 02, Double Decker Corners, Watery Patterned Masks Brushes and Stamps No. 01, ARTpacks Brushes and Stamps: Structures No. 01, Blendable Maps No. 03, Flourished Words Brushes and Stamps No. 02, Thin Classic Photo Frames Curled and Flat No. 02, Beach House Memories Mini Kit, Bristol Kit, October Kit, Distressed lines and Word Art Brushes and Stamps, Paia Kit, Wailua Kit

Mollie (readstoomuch) was inspired in a different way. The puzzle pieces are evident in both layouts. Mollie used them not only as a decorative element but to replicate those leading lines in the original layout. It was a wonderful way to draw the focus to the adorable photo of her granddaughter!

Thanksgiving_2012_hide-and-seek_cookevilleMollie’s products: Banner Safety Tags No. 01, Blendable Layers No. 03, Colageable puzzle Pieces No. 01, Dirty Linens: Autumn Paper Pack, Doily Edgers No. 04, Hello Autumn Kit, Pinned Pearls No. 02, Ripped & Stitched Wordwise, Thin Classic Frames No. 02, Tightly Kerned Sentiments No. 03, Wooden Arrows No. 01

Linda (earlofoxford) also found inspiration in the leading lines. With her graphic and high contrast choices, she was able to create a completely different dynamic to her layout. The football player seems as if he’s ready to jump off her page and leap into game day!

andsoitbeginstodayLinda’s products: Christmas Memories Collection, Edge Overlays No. 07, Taped Together Overlays No. 03, Painted Bursts No. 01, Blendable Ledgers No. 01, Textured Photo Masks No. 01B, Brierly Roughed Up Paper Pack, Spackle No. 01, Fine Line Twists Brushes and Stamps No. 03, Messy Stamped Trims Brushes and Stamps, Golden Chevrons No. 01, Countable Strips Brushes and Stamps No. 01, Bold and Scripted Strips Brushes and Stamps No. 01, Ticketed Dates No. 05, Stitched Chevrons No. 01, Ripped Photo Frame Stacks No. 01, Flair Mini Sports, Pinned Pearls No. 01, Drop Shadow Styles No. 02, Readymade Borders: Vintage No. 02, Glorious Moments Brushes and Stamps, How’d They Do That?
