Fifth Saturday CT Spotlight Scraplift

Today’s fifth Saturday CT Spotlight Scraplift is all about Agnieszka (Arte Banale) whose brilliantly creative work is sure to inspire some gorgeous pages from the community. She certainly inspired her fellow creative team members – the hard part was settling on one page in a gallery full of lift-worthy designs.

Elisabeth (lego) lifted Agnieszka’s Project Life style, and it worked perfectly to showcase photos of her daughter in her vampire costume. Both pages have the look of a paper scrapbook page, replete with doodles, splatters, photos, and extensive journaling. This design is a must when you have lots of details to share about your story.

Liz (lizziet5) chose one of Agnieszka’s beautifully blended pages to lift, and I love that both artists chose a photo to highlight the men in their lives. The artsy elements on both pages pair nicely with the casual word art and word strips. Well done, ladies!

When Agnieszka posted her word art-filled page, I fell in love with it and immediately put it in my favorites folder. I wasn’t sure if I could pull off a lift, but it was actually a lot easier than I thought. And what fun it was to scour my stash for love-related word art to use with a picture of my cousin’s daughter and her new husband.

Saturday Scraplift: Rainbow Bright!

Hiya, welcome to another Saturday Scraplift challenge. It sounds like the winter is persuading some of us to spend time indoors scrapping. To cheer us up, I’ve chosen a bright page by Erin (Ernie88). I loved it as soon as I spotted it in the gallery, it really stands out. ssl_Jan2016_Ernie88_blog

Rainbows make such an effective design element, so pleasing to our eyes. I love the graphic word art, and scattered elements, all combining to create a lovely family page.

I started by thinking of using rainbow ribbons too, then I remembered this sweet photo I’d taken of Amy last weekend when we enjoyed being ladies who lunch after she had a climbing session. I used Katie’s new Everlasting Kit as my base for the page, and found other pink ricrac in my supplies to add, I always loved ribbons during my paper scrapping days, and they’re just as fun (and easier to attach to the page) with digi!ssl_loved_blog

I used Little Princess Kit; Vintage Photo Frames No. 37; Border Stamps n Layers No. 01; Everlasting Collection; Collageables No. 03; Watery brushes No. 01; Arrowed Paper Clips No. 01; Little Shores Kit; Metal Rimmed Glittered Alpha: Pink; Deelen Solids Paper Pack; Dalese Solids and Stripes Paper Pack; Stitched Circles Clean and Messy: White No. 01 all by Katie Pertiet.

I hope this has inspired you to spend time this weekend scrapping! Post your pages in the Saturday Scraplift Gallery. Remember that challenge pages using 100% Designer Digitals products are eligible for our rewards program, check out the Reward thread for January. I’m looking forward to seeing your pages!
