Saturday Scraplift — on the edge!

For those of you who played along during the 3rd quarter challenges, you’ll know I have a special fondness for scrapping on the edge! So, naturally, this week’s Saturday scrap lift is of a page created for that challenge, by the very talented CelinaT! Check it out:

Let’s see what some of our fabulous CT members did with this inspiration! First, by Brenda (bbe), who said “It was unbelievably hard to leave all that white space.” But, I think we can all agree it was worth it! I love how she flipped the design vertically. Those cluster stickers made a nice border!

On her page Brenda used these products: Little Dudette Scrapbook KitColorful Clusters Stickers and BrushesAnzio Element PackStuffed Edge Journalers No. 02Every Moment Brushes and StampsLife Lines Element PackReadymade Borders: Love No. 04, and Dotted and Dashed Brushes and Stamps.

Elisabeth (lego) created a page using the original for a basis, but look at those gorgeous colors on here! Love that ripped frame and bling, and the cool way she decorated the die cut leaves bordering the photo.

For her page, Elisabeth used these products: Cutting Files: Chunky Cuts Leaves No. 01Watery Blumes No. 14Striped Mix Neutrals Paper PackColorful Paint Layers No. 02Little Dudette Scrapbook KitHarvest Fields Scrapbooking CollectionFastened Frames No. 07Leyton Element PackSchool Days Brushes and StampsARTpack Lace Brushes and Stamps No. 01Stitching Holes Borders No. 02 Brushes and StampsDoily Edgers No. 05Fine Line Scribbles Brushes and Stamps No. 01Marlow Element PackArtistry d’amour Kit, and Painted Word Strips No. 01.

I was inspired by the horizontal flow of the original design, and the black and white photo, but as you will see, my page took a slightly different direction with a long, horizontal photo. That’s the great thing about scrap lifts, they take you to unexpected results sometimes!

On my page I used: Torn Templates No. 04Recolte Chalked TransfersRecolte Chalked Element PackRecolte Chalked Paper PackRecolte Paper PackAnzio Scrapbooking Kit and Stuffed Edge Journalers No. 02.

I hope you will be inspired to play along! Please post your pages in the Saturday Scraplift gallery, and be sure to include it in the September Challenge Participation Sign-In, so you get points for participating! Happy scrapping, can’t wait to see what you all come up with!

A Vintage Wayback Wednesday Challenge

When you search the word “kit” in the Designer Digitals store, the search brings up 667 beautiful and versatile collections of scrapbooking goodness! My fun but daunting task each month is to go through these kits and choose just one for the Wayback Wednesday challenge. I recently came across some old photos that sparked a memory, so I looked for a kit that could accompany some vintage photos. The Curated Studio Mix No 5 was my final choice. I love the color combination and great collection of elements!

kpertiet_curatedstudiomixno5prevLook at this adorable photo of little Mollie! I guess she’s always been cute and sweet! I really like the way she has used various brushes and gathered elements around her photo. Mollie used only the chosen kit.

Esther’s wonderful vintage photo is the centerpiece of her page. I totally love the way she put her journaling together. The off center construction is eye catching and it gave her the perfect place for some of the great elements in this kit.

i-see1In addition to the chosen kit, Esther used  Walden Solids Paper Pack, Sweet St Nicholas Element Pack and Clean Stitched Borders: Brown No 01.

My page documents a memory from many many years ago. I recently ran across these photos that made this story come flooding back to me! I love the colors and elements of this kit to go with my sepia photos. The huge collection of elements in this kit also goes well with modern photos. I only used this kit with no other additions!

train-stationYou can add this awesome kit to your collection this week during our Quarterly Sale. Please use the Curated Studio Mix No 5 kit to design a page and post it in our Scrapbook challenges gallery. We’d love to see it and it could help you win a valuable coupon for the DD store!

Double Up: Template Mash Up Scrapbook Challenge

Double page layouts give us a way to use lots of photos from special events while keeping our scrapbook albums looking cohesive and well designed. For this week’s template mash up challenge, I decided to use two templates and mash them into a two page spread!

692

607

By mixing and matching the many elements and element clusters on these packed Layer Works templates, I came up with an autumnal themed double layout featuring photos of my daughter’s family, taken on my grandson’s birthday last week.

As you may have noticed, I used very few products other than the featured templates!

I hope you’ll consider picking up these two templates (40% off during our QUARTERLY SALE! going on now) and creating a double page layout. You can also play along by mashing the templates into a single page layout. Either way, if you use all products that are currently available in the DD store, your participation will earn you credit in our rewards program. You can read the details in this thread, and don’t forget to post your page in the template challenge gallery to share the inspiration with our DD community!
