Fashion Inspired Scrapbooking Challenge: Emerald and Diamonds

Happy Monday everyone! Hillarey here with a brand new Fashion Inspired scrapbooking challenge for you! This month we are focusing on emerald (the color) and diamonds (the shape)! I just love this outfit, with the beautiful beaded top and cool chevron pieced skirt, and today we will be using it to inspire a scrapbook page. Sam Ellis, Debi (beehive50) and I have created some beautiful pages to get your creative juices flowing.

Emerald and DiamondsAnd, since this is the first time we’ve done this kind of page I thought I’d start off with what inspired me! I took the color from the beautiful emerald beaded top, the black chevron shapes in her skirt and the gold triangular bracelets! I had so much fun with this challenge and decided to create a page about my husband, whom I am very thankful for, and also because he has beautiful green eyes and the colors in my photo matched so well with the inspiration photo!!! Mitch - My Husband_Fashion BlogThe products I used: Family Hand Drawn Words, Adventures in Outlines: Shape Clusters No., Catching Rainbows Solids Paper Pack, Cut Ups: Black and White, Colorful Tabs, Digital Poetry: Dates, Fresh Vintage: Clare Element Pack, From My Bookshelf Blendables No. 07, Life Lines Solids Paper Pack, Little Snips Alphabet, Splatters Brushes and Stamps No. 03, Striping Graphic Gold No. 01, Vintage Photo Frames No. 32, Watery Brushes and Stamps No. 02, Watery Spots Brushes and Stamps No. 12, Worth Repeating Brushes and Stamps no. 10

Sam created a darling page about her daughter and Grandson. I absolutely love this photograph! Sam’s inspiration came from the fun chevron shapes, the beaded top and the beautiful emerald color. She also took inspiration from the long linear picture and rotated it; that combined with her minimal elements really highlights this wonderful photo!SamEllis_Special_MomentsProducts Sam used: Worth Repeating Brushes and Stamps No. 10, Merry and Bright Element Pack, Striping Graphic Brushes and Stamps No. 01,  Linen Chevrons Paper Pack No.5, Striping Graphic Brushes and Stamps No. 03, These Words: Love Brushes and Stamps No. 01, Adventures in Outlines: Shape Clusters No. 01

Debi’s (Beehive50) great page is all about a text she received from her daughter who is training for soccer. Debi’s inspiration came from the emerald and gold colors and circle patten of the beaded top! I love how she filled the circle stamp with the emerald paper and soccer ball brads and that check list at the bottom is the perfect touch!

Beehive50

Products Debi used: Arctic Whites Paper Pack No. 03, Pebbled Universal No. 03, Flair Mini Sports, Clear-Thru Arrows No. 01, Flair Mini’s No. 2

Lets see where your inspiration takes you! To make the challenge a little more fun, here are Katie’s freebies!

The week is over and we have a wonderful page for the Saturday Scraplift.  Kimberlyb created this fun page for the artsy challenge and I just love where the challenge took her. Kim’s design is a wonderful way to create a multi-photo page with a fun “topper.”

Trace created one of her wonderfully famous no-photo pages. So much fun and so much detail.

Esther adapted Kim’s graphic design to create another of her wonderful travel pages. The addition of wooden elements is a fun look.

cover-for-DD-scrapliftEsther’s supply list includes:  Life Basics No2 Template Set, Toothy Spring Paper Pack, Wood Veneer Symbology No1 and Wooden Alphabet No13.

Chrissy’s page documents a fun filled day that she had with her kids. Her bright border is the perfect accent to her lift of the fun grid design.

Page Makeover Challenge: Second Chances

The first time I ever posted a page in the Designer Digitals gallery, I was terrified. I remember my finger hovering over the ENTER key for several minutes before I finally took the plunge and posted my page. I recently went back to my very first pages, and realize how much my style has changed over the years, and how much I’ve learned about page design and Photoshop.

I love the fact that digital scrapbooking provides you with the opportunity to go back and fix things that you don’t like on a page, or in some cases, do an entire ‘makeover’ of a page using different techniques, newly acquired skills, and best of all, new products!

For this challenge, take a trip back to the very beginning of your Designer Digitals gallery and to the very first page that you posted. Do a ‘makeover’ using either new products and/or a new style.  When you post your makeover page, don’t forget to provide a link to your original page in the credits so that we can see the ‘before’ and ‘after’ transformation!

Pam and Liz were brave enough to give it a go. Liz redid her very first page in the DD gallery of her daughter in the snow. I love how she enlarged the photo to make it the main focal point in her ‘makeover’ page!

Page_Makeover_July_2014_72

Liz used the following products on her page: Leyton Solids Paper Pack, Life Lines Solids Paper Pack, Kerava Solids Paper, Pack, Malene Solids Paper Pack, Antibes Element Pack, Readymade Borders Neutral, Fine Lines Border Lines Brushes and Stamps No. 10, Flake Scatters No. 01, Winterized Photo Frames No. 01, Stitched Down Dates – altered for 2010

Pam chose to focus on only one photo from the original cluster of three on her very first Designer Digitals page. I love how it turned out.

Page_Makeover
Pam used the following products on her makeover page: Arctic Whites Paper Pack No. 02, Ledger Grid Overlays No. 01, Letter Box Pattern Clusters, Brushes and Stamps No. 07, Painted Photo Masks Brushes and Stamps No. 06, LakeLand Element Pack, Three Words Brushes and Stamps No. 01, Wood Veneer Symbology No. 01, Wood Veneer Alphabet No. 19, Sparkling Alphabets Americana.

For my first page that I ever posted at DD,  I liked the basic idea of my layout, but at the time I didn’t own many Designer Digitals products nor did I do a very good job with the quality of the photos. I chose to add some layers, tidy up the photo, and include a few extra details like the date and some journaling!

Up up and away

For my page, I used Alandia Tropics Kit, Bakers Twine Assortment No.1, DelMar Shores Complete Scrapbook Collection, Lens Flare Brushes and Stamps No. 1, Oceania Scrapbooking Collection, Schmeared Blocks No. 01 Brushes and Stamps, Tidewater Scrapbooking Collection, Watery Spots Brushes and Stamps No. 13, Water Tropics No. 01, Photo Clusters No. 16

I hope you are excited to play along with this new challenge. Come join in and share your page with us in the Challenge Pages gallery. If you use ALL DD PRODUCT on your page you can work your way to savings in the DD store by posting a link to your page in the July Challenge Participation thread. Have fun!
