Capture the Love Challenge

Valentines Day is just around the corner and whether you celebrate this holiday or not, it’s always fun to scrap about those we love. That is what the Capture the Love Challenge is all about! For me, reds and pinks have always been a large part of this special day but since the pages are more about our love for others, feel free to use whatever colors fit your page!

Capturing the Love for me means documenting, a little early, the 20 years that my hubby and I have known and loved each other! Our actual date isn’t until November but I just couldn’t wait another minute to share this exciting milestone with everyone here.

Supplies used to create this page: Katie Pertiet: Clean Stitched Hearts Pink No. 1 (coming soon), Taped Together Overlays No. 5, Smitten Solids Paper Pack, Notebook Edge Frames No. 4Artsy Long Line Scribbles No. 1, Gesso No. 1 white, Spill Frame Layers No. 19, Touch Up Paint Brushes and Stamps, Snowfall Overlays Brushes and Stamps No. 1, Studio DD: Readymade Titles Love No. 1, Lovely Littles Paper Pack.

I hope you’ll join me in this fun challenge! Katie has provided some fantastic freebies, and I used almost all of them, for this challenge. When you complete your page, post it in the Challenge Gallery for everyone to see! If your page qualifies for the rewards program, then don’t forget to link up your page in the February Participation thread for proper credit.

I can’t wait to see what you create!

Color Spots Challenge: Lovely Pinks and Blues

Love is in the air and I have big news to share! This months color challenge is a different twist on the traditional Valentines Day colors. I found inspiration in the different hues of pinks and blues. Check out the various inspiration pieces I found as starting off points.(photo credit)(photo credit)(photo credit)

The pinks and blues were also inspired by my daughters baptism album I am working on. Not only did one of the inspiration pieces have pink tulips, but so did the photo from the baptism photo shoot. I used the soft pinks and blues as well as a few more vibrant colors. I also pulled in some greenery from the leaves of the tulips. I was inspired by the silver bucket to use Katie’s Paint it Silver. You could also use gold like the glitter on the cake.

Supplies used: Alandia Noces Element Pack, All My Heart Brushes and Stamps, Around Words Brushes and Stamps No. 02, Bakers Twine Assortment No. 01, Berks Lane Element Pack, Chandra Element Pack, Clean Stitched Hearts: Pink No 01, Collageable Notions No. 01, Crowning Affair: Vibrant Element Pack, Darling Baby Element Pack, Everlasting Element Pack, Fresh Vintage Stacks No. 02, Hey There Element Pack, Leather Flowerettes, Malene Element Pack, Paint it Silver No. 02, Shining Clusters No. 01, Simply Moroccan Paper Pack No. 04, Sweet Rose Bay Clusters, Sweet Rosey Element Pack, Twisted Dots No. 01

Are you ready to scrap with different shades of pinks and blues? Katie has so many fun items in the store! Not only is the store packed with great products, but Katie has also provided us with a freebie for this challenge. When you complete your page, post them in the Color Challenge Gallery for everyone to see! If your page qualifies for the rewards program, then don’t forget to link up your page in the February Participation thread for proper credit. Happy scrapping!

Template Mash-Up: Lovely Things

Hello creative friends! Today I bring you a new and fresh Template Mash-Up challenge. The gallery is just absolutely BURSTING with creativity and Lovely things for February! I hope this challenge inspires you to create more lovely eye candy! I really love choosing templates that I think will challenge and appeal to many different people. Usually it means choosing two templates that have a different “Style”. This time is no different, we have a simple graphic template and a layered one full of goodies! I can’t wait to see how everyone uses them.

Layer Works No 413 by Studio Double D

My Love Layered Template by Katie Pertiet

I originally thought I would go simple and graphic with mine, but I ended up using lots of the elements from each.

Along with the two templates, I used Katie’s Lovely Littles Paper Pack. I hope these templates inspire you to create! Remember, flip, turn and piece together and create your own masterpiece, or use the templates as they are to help you get another page documented! There is no “wrong” way!!

Post your DD Pages to the Template Challenge Gallery and don’t forget to check in with us in the February rewards Thread for credit towards our rewards program!! Happy Scrapping!!

Saturday Scraplift: Across the boundary

Hiya, and welcome to this week’s Saturday Scraplift challenge. It’s a rainy day here, and the house will be full of Amy’s friends this afternoon, but I’ve got some quiet time just now for scrapping.

This week I’ve chosen this gorgeous page by Connie (Connieg).

The watery paint works so well at extending the photo, and the colours are perfectly chosen. Then there’s that cute face right at the centre. I love the dimensional element added by the butterfly too.

This inspired me to scrap a photo I’ve had waiting for a page for a couple of months. Tom came home with this masterpiece from school. Each coloured strip has a word he’d use to describe himself. He’s included kind, fast and ‘hansum’ which I love!

I went with the photo across several frames, though a different arrangement. I also added paint splashes underneath and the paper strip echoes the strips in the photo.

For the page I used Photoclusters No. 48; Catching Rainbows Scrapbooking Collection; Basic Grids Paper Pack No. 02; So Fine Add-On Paper Pack; Torn Templates No. 03; Leap Ahead Epoxies.

Now it’s over to you. Show us your pages inspired by Connie by posting in the Saturday Scraplift Gallery. Remember you can also earn a discount by participating in our rewards scheme and using 100% Designer Digitals products. Add your page to the participation thread for February, and get the ball rolling for the month.

Happy scrapping!

Saturday Scraplift Challenge: Perfectly Balanced

Good morning all! This week for your scraplifting pleasure, I have chosen to lift Julie’s (MaggieMae) deceptively simple, but perfectly balanced layout. It is a beautiful design that uses colour masterfully, repetition subtly (see how the grid brushe echoes the patterned paper?) and 2 groups of 3 elements that frame the whole. I love the “page within a page” effect of the layered background paper too!

Guest CT member Shannon was inspired by the horizontal ribbon and the groups of three buttons to complete this great layout:

From the store, Shannon has used the new Geometric Masks Brushes and Stamps No.01, Canvas Color Mix Paper Pack No.16, DocuStack Layers No.02 , End Zone Brushes and Stamps and the Christmas Joy Element Pack.

CT member Anke’s lovely layout rejoices in the early spring suggested by her orchids. I love how she has (like Julie), matched her horizontal ribbon to the predominant colour in her photo. I love the way she has then drawn attention to the subtle pinks in the flowers with her sets of pink brads and backing doily.

Anke has used Katies new Scrapbooking Collection Smitten as well as Thin Classic Photo Frames Curled and Flat No.01, Bloom in Paris Roughed Up Photo Mats, Banner Strips No.01, Watery Grids Brushes and Stamps No.06 and Grungy Ledger Grids Brushes and Stamps No.02.

I rotated Julie’s design and moved my ‘page within a page’ slightly off centre. I too used elements from Katie’s new Scrapbooking Collection Smitten. My background paper is from the Botanical Colors Cerulean Meadow Solids Paper Pack and the patterned paper is from the Cambrianna Sparkles Pack. I’ve also used Cambrianna Element Pack, Instamatic Frames No.06 and the little leather hearts are from the Everlasting Element Pack.

I hope you will be inspired by Julie’s gorgeous page to create your own ‘perfectly balanced’ layout. Remember to post your page in the Saturday Scraplift Challenge Gallery and in the January Challenges Sign-In Thread in the forum. Remember that to qualify for challenge rewards your page must contain all Designer Digital Product. Happy Scrapping!
