Saturday Scraplift Challenge: Dainty does it!

Good morning everyone and a big, warm welcome to this week’s Saturday Scraplift Challenge. For this week’s lift, I chose this page by ElizabethW. I can’t tell you how much I love the classic design. Elizabeth used a broad border and the daintiest of elements to compliment her sweet photo, making it the focal point of her page. So beautifully simplistic but a total feast for the eyes!


Debi (beehive50) jumped at the chance to lift Elizabeth’s page. Debi stayed true to Elizabeth’s layout with the single photo and a cluster of goodies along the bottom, centered journaling with a brad at the bottom but chose a simple border line and the perfect brush to go with the tale of her page! Girls just wanna have fun comes to mind!

For her page, Debi used the following products: Handdrawn Hello Summer Brushes and StampsCoffee Stains Brushes and Stamps No. 01Thin Classic Photo Frames Curled and Flat No. 01Flair Minis No. 04Great Escape Element PackLittle Enamel Accents RainbowSewn Statements No. 05 – Katie Pertiet; Moby Kit – Lynn Grieveson

Next to jump on board with her lift was Elisabeth (lego) where she has captured a delightful family moment. I love how she ramped up her lift with the poly photo frame and pink border, and substituted journaling with the childhood word art which adds a playfulness to her page. So sweet!


Here is Elisabeth’s supply list: Framed Photo Masks No1Canvas Colors Paper Pack No. 03Burlap Essentials Winter Paper PackCanvas Color Mix Paper Pack No. 10Splatters Brushes and Stamps No. 05Childhood Word Art No. 03 Brushes and StampsPoly Photo Frames No. 01Bookshelf Flairs No. 02Washi Tapes: Whites No. 01 – Katie Pertiet; Readymade Borders: Love No. 03 – Studio Double-D

Agnieszka (Arte Banale) was inspired by Elizabeth’s page to document a stolen moment with this little chap at his baptism! I love how the beautiful, soft tones in the photo overflow into the rest of the page with the teal string adding a lovely contrast. To finish her page off, Agnieszka chose the perfect quote. Just adorable!

I’ve been looking for inspiration to document this story of Charlie Bear who fell asleep at the dinner table! Elizabeth’s page was perfect. I didn’t want to detract too much from the sense of this quiet moment for Charlie so the classic design was just the thing and I went monochrome with smudgings of green. For those worried if Charlie fell… no, I quickly took the shot and Stuart lifted him to bed!

Memorable Moments with You 800

I used these products for my page: Krafted Cardstocks Paper Pack No. 02Scripting Lines Brushes and Stamps No. 01Messy Spotty Edgers Brushes and Stamps No. 01Messy Spotty Edgers Brushes and Stamps No. 02Thin Classic Photo Frames Curled and Flat No. 01Color Me Happy EdgersWeek-at-a-Glance Brads – Katie Pertiet; Pierrette Solids Paper Pack – Maplebrook Studios; Stitched Down Dates – Lynn Grieveson

Template Mash Up Challenge: Layering

Let’s celebrate Template Tuesday by doing some template layering! One of my favorite things about using the great templates available by our designers is the ability to mix and match layers to create a uniquely beautiful page. Around here, we call it the Template Mash Up Challenge! This week, we’ll be mixing and matching from these two beauties:

Template 1Template 2As usual, our Creative Team ‘wowed’ me with the beauty and diversity of the layouts they created from these same two starting points!

Template Sharon

I was thinking a lot about holding onto autumn (my favorite season!) when I chose these templates. Sharon seems to have been thinking the same thing, and obviously these templates were perfectly suited to a page that perfectly displays the brilliance of autumn–even as it fades! The only product Sharon used besides the featured templates was Taped Together Stacks December No. 1 (which you’ll see coming soon!).

Template Debi

Debi’s page is brilliant. She’s got a rare talent for making diverse starting points into something that is really her own style. LOVE this page, especially how she shrunk the epoxy buttons to make them into her signature mini flairs. :) Debi used only two products in addition to the featured templates: Burlap Essentials Autumn Paper PackBe Bop Xmas Toothy Solids Paper Pack.

Template Mollie

Mollie has just returned from the trip of a lifetime, and she’s used elements from our two templates to showcase a beautiful photograph from her travels. I am amazed by the totally different look achieved here with the addition of the clean wood veneer frame! Again, very few additional products were required: Awesome Autumn Scripted Titles Brushes and StampsJust Linens Paper Pack No. 62Wood Veneer Keylined Photo Frames No. 01.

I’d love to see you participate in our challenge by creating your own layout featuring whatever elements from our two starting templates inspire you! You can add whatever additional supplies you’d like as well. Post your page in the Template Challenge Gallery  to share in the fun. And don’t forget that if you use all currently available DD products, your page will qualify for credit in our rewards program! You can find all of the details in the November Challenge thread in the forum.

Itunes inspired November

I absolutely love searching for great inspiration for scrapbook pages on iTunes. Usually I am drawn to the artwork of a cover and have little or no idea about the songs… this time I loved the songs and then saw the album cover :)

Screen Shot 2015-11-23 at 07.33.49What nice change to all the albums with a group or singer stood on the front and nothing else happening!

Katie has a great freebie to give you a hand –

Have a look at the pages the best Creative Team in the world have made to show you –

Esther_a has made a beautiful page of the blackbird that nested above her door, what stunning photograph!
2015-11-08-BlackbirdsBeehive50 tells me she struggles with circles and grunge brushes- but I don’t believe her :) loving her Thanks page –


Mungerre captured a heavy snowfall that took this sweet flower by surprise. And managed to create a great swirling snow look too –



Here is my page. I really intended to make a deep inky blue one, just like the inspiration,  but… as always with scrapbooking, the page took me a different way and now its rusty autumn coloured!

Hope you will find time this busy season to create and share a little layout with us in the iTunes Gallery. Look forward very much to seeing what you come up with :)

DesignerDigitals Hot Page of the Week, November 21, 2015

As we come up on Thanksgiving week here in the US, I found this adorable page by Hillarey to be the perfect HOT PAGE for the week. Not only is the photo priceless, but I adore the way she’s embellished it into a treasured memory! And even though you can tell it’s a flu page, she’s dated it which is such an important part of our scrapbooking that we sometimes forget! Well done Hillarey!

Hello Awesome Fall

Saturday Scraplift: A splash of colour

Hiya, welcome to another Saturday Scraplift. We’re all starting to feel a bit wintery here, it snowed last night, just a little bit, but I stuck my hand out the door about midnight to catch my first snowflake of the season.

This week I’ve chosen a lovely page by OKate. I do love dark backgrounds, I love the splash of colour in the brushwork, and the postage stamp frame just sits perfectly. Three of my fellow creative team members were inspired to create their own pages based on this.ssl_Nov_OKate_blog

Esther chose a fun subject for her page, and I agree, you’re never too old for Lego, I still love playing with it with my kids. I love the frame used to focus our attention on part of the photo.ssl_Nov_esther_blog

Esther used Artsy Spots Brushes, Stamps and Layers No. 02Big Bottom Lift Classic Photo Frames No. 01Chalkboard Christmas Solids Paper PackChristmas Wishes Element PackPainted Photo Masks Brushes and Stamps No. 10.
