iTunes Inspired Scrapbooking challenge

This month’s challenge is a bit of a tough or difficult starting point – I cannot wait to see where it take you all!

Screen Shot 2016-06-15 at 14.16.39Listening to this album the other day I was thinking who designed this cover? who chose to put such big type across the main image? And how cool it looks! Clever framing by the type makes you first look right past the title and at the eyes, before you draw back and read the words.

The ever fabulous Creative Team helped me out and rustled up some brilliant pages to show you …

 

Readstoomuch found an adorable picture to use, and enough details to set it off but not overrun it. Perfect!

Lizziet5 ALSO had a wonderful grandson picture to use – obviously perfect for grandkid pics, this challenge! – and too advantage of Katies great freebie too.

Finally my page; no grandkids yet, but one of my babies and one of my fur babies! Win win 😉  More ‘scrapbooking’ all over mine, but as you can see for this challenge you’ll need to keep some of your words BIG!

Saturday Scraplift: Blocks, Frames and Blends

It’s Sharon (justbnsharon) again with a Saturday Scraplift. When I look for an inspiration piece for the SSL, I try to find something that is a little out of my norm but makes me think “I can do that.” When I saw “Exploring Your World” by Brenda (bbe) it met my criteria! I like the three focal points across the lower part of the page and that they are all a little different. Thanks for the fun inspiration piece, Brenda.

I wandered a bit from the soft feel to colors more bright and bold to feature some photos of my grandson. Katie’s new Blue Skies Collection gave me everything I needed to create my page. It is such a fun, versatile kit and made putting my page together a breeze!!

Aaron---Believe I hope you will be inspired and join the SSL. I am always excited to see the variety of designs taken from one inspiration page! Be sure to post your page in the Saturday Scraplift Gallery and if you use 100% Designer Digitals products don’t forget to post it in the June Rewards Participation Thread. If you are unfamiliar with the DigitalDesigners Rewards you find the information here.

Have a great day – and Happy Scrapping!

The Story Scrapbook Challenge

So I know we’ve done a wedding story before, but it’s such a great opportunity to dust off some of those old wedding photos and bring them to life.  I know my photos are still sitting in their proof album, I’ve done nothing with them.  June Bride and all, which is why I thought of this topic.

So I’m going to ask you to take a walk down memory lane – grab a wedding photo, one of your parents, one of your children, one of a relative, one that you’ve been bridesmaid at or matron of honor.  There’s a story in each and every one.   Did the weather not play the game, was the food incredible, how about the wedding dance was the music specially selected and now when you hear it come on the radio it makes you wistful, did you get 10 toasters as gifts, were you a bridezilla or cool calm and collected, did you have a special wedding guest that attended, did you write your own vows, lots of stories to tell

We want to hear it all.

The creative team have jumped on board with some wonderful pages.

Lizzie has created such a dreamy page of her daughter, doesn’t the B&W photo just shine through.  A reflection by mother of daughter and how it all came to be.  Superb story telling at its finest.

37_Lizzie_TheStory

Supplies used by Lizzie:  Challenge Freebie,  Spring Walk Solids Paper Pack,  Solna Kit,  Good Day Element Pack,  Tidewater Element Pack,  Scribbling Brushes and Stamps No. 04,  Outlined and Scripted Sentiments Brushes and Stamps No. 04.

And I have made a page about my mum and dad’s wedding in 1963, and mum’s ‘going away’ outfit she changed into after the wedding reception.

37_Carol_TheStory

Supplies I have used:  Vintage Garden Scrapbook Kit No. 01,  Spill Frame Layers No. 05,  Splatters Brushes and Stamps No. 05,  Clean Stitched Banners: White No. 01,  Nana’s Buttons.

 

The team at DD have generously provided a freebie to help you on your way, the link is good for the entire month of June.  I hope the goodies inspire you.   I am really looking forward to reading your stories.

Post your pages in the Scrapbook Challenge Gallery and don’t forget when you use ALL DD product on your challenge page you should post a link of your page in the June Challenge Participation thread so that it will count toward your savings in the rewards program.  Everyone’s a winner!

Saturday Scraplift: Front and Center

Er, maybe we should just rename it the “Start of the week Scraplift” instead this week ok? So sorry, summer vacation apparently means I lose my mind and forget all about SSL. But never fear, we’ve got a fun page for you to be inspired by today.

SpiderGirl3How cute is this little spider girl? Digi371 (Sherry) did a great job working with the new spill frames and I was excited to be able to use them too!

Here is my inspired page. I obviously kept with the centered spill frame photo but just had to use a recent vacation (that my daughter made me take!)

sat scrap - bryce canyon 2016Spill Frame Layers No. 05, Watercolor Chromatics Paper Pack No. 02, Monochromatics Overlays No. 04, Bead Scatterings No. 04, Outlined and Scripted Sentiments Brushes and Stamps No. 06, Assorted Tapes No. 03

Forgive my tardiness but I do hope you will find some inspiration this week. We’d love to see your pages posted in the Saturday Scraplift Gallery. Remember pages created with 100% Designer Digitals products are also eligible towards our rewards scheme.  Post in the participation thread for June to earn a discount at the store!

Happy Summer!
