AAM Scrapbooking Challenge: Keep Calm

Happy Holidays!  What?  You’re not quite ready?  I don’t think there has been a year in the last ten that I wasn’t caught off guard by the holidays.  I’m always stressed by the time they get here.  This month I thought we could make ourselves a little motivational poster (or at least add some humor) to get us through these “before the holidays stresses” that might try and get in our way. Katie has put together a link for a few freebies for you to use, too.

Liz and Anke volunteered to join me in getting things rolling. Here’s what we’ve come up with.

I love what Liz has done with her page.  How many of us have these same feelings during certain times of the year? A reminder like this page might just do the trick.

AAM_challenge_for_Kelly_November_2014_72

Here is a list of the supplies that Liz used on her page: Challenge Freebies, December Woods Element Pack, Tidewater Element Pack, Thin Classic Photo Frames Curled and Flat No.02, Messy Stamped Textures No.01, Messy stitched Borders: White No. 02, Wood Veneer Alphabet No.20, Just Linens Paper Pack, No.57: Broyden, Training Handrawn Words Brushes and Stamps.

Anke, made a page that showcases a talent that might come in handy if stress decided to show it’s bad self.  A double play on words and it works beautifully.

2014-11-16-TheBest

Anke used these supplies: Best Adventure Lyered Template, Curated Studio Mix Scrapbooking kit, No.06, Curated Studio Mix Scrapbooking kit, No.08, Dictionary Blendables: Spring No.01, Fine Line Twists Brushes and Stamps No.03, Jaspia Solids Paper Pack, Cut Ups: Sportsmanship.

My page will hopefully motivate me to get more people involved in the preparations for the holidays. (Maybe I should make them each their own motivational poster.  lol)

AAM

My supply list looks like this: Challenge Freebie, Monochromatic Overlays No.5, Splatters No.3, Blendable LT No. 43, Old Ledger Neutrals Paper Pack, Frame Hangers No.1, Winter Artistry Kit, Krafty Woods Paper Pack.

Don’t let the holiday’s take you by surprise. Motivate yourself (or one of your people) to limit that stress that seems to always creep up on us. If you would like to share, we would love to see your page in the AAM gallery.  If you use all DD supplies on your page, it qualifies for the Rewards Program so be sure and post a link in the November Challenge Participation Thread.

Happy Scrapping!

Saturday Scraplift: Winter’s a’coming!

Hiya, now that Halloween is out of the way I can feel myself being pulled towards Christmas. It’s still some way off, but I am noticing some wintry pages in the gallery. This one by Erin (Ernie88) drew me in. I’m a big fan of chevrons, and I love seeing how people use them on their pages. They add so much interest here.

Debi (Beehive50)was inspired by the corner detail to scrap these photos of her daughter with a group of friends, I love, love love the journalling – both the placement and the words!

One Kit Wonder-Thankful Memories

It’s really fun to explore some of the older kits in the DD store and choose one for this challenge. Since the challenge calls for designing a page with only one kit (plus only one other item), the chosen kit needs to have quite a variety of elements. This month I have gone thematic and chose Katie’s Thankful Memories kit. This kit has it all: 12 papers, cardstock, a fun alpha, flowers, buttons, ribbons, glitter, stickers and a frame just to name a few!

KPertiet_ThankfulMemoriesKitPREV

Aino, Sharon and I each designed a page with this lovely kit and I think you will agree, they have three very different looks from only one kit!

Sharon’s beautiful photos of nature blend beautifully with the natural elements of this kit. I like the way she has arranged her photos on a horizontal band. Sharon added an element from the Chandra kit to complete her layout.

Aino’s page features a beautifully blended photo of her daughter. I really like the way she used the curly journaler behind her photo to add some extra fun and texture. Aino didn’t add anything to the Thankful Memories kit! Wow!

14_nov_beautifulyou_web

 

I had some fun fall photos that I thought would pair well with the autumn elements in this kit. I added one of Katie’s new photo clusters No 48.

I hope you will give this beautiful and timely kit a try. It is on sale in the store for the next few days. We’d love to see the way you use this kit on your page. Please post it in the Scrapbook Challenges gallery for us to enjoy!
