Symmetry…and then some! A Saturday Scraplift Challenge

The dictionary defines symmetry as “regularity of form or arrangement of parts on opposite sides of a plane.” In the gorgeous page Debbie West created for the new Home Décor challenge, she created a lovely symmetric photo arrangement. Then she stepped it up by adding carefully selected elements to add lots of interest to her symmetric arrangement. I really like the way the bird and title extend out in different directions. Isn’t her addition of a half-frame line perfect?

Carol and Aino took inspiration from Debbie’s layout and created two adorable pages that start with symmetry and get creative from there. Carol (carolee) started with the MOST adorable photos of the sweet new addition to her family. She added a wonderful selection of soft little elements and a great diagonal background paper to add lots of interest.

Template Mash Up: Hello Summer!

It is already the middle of July, but for me Summer is just beginning!!  The weather is finally nice and for most of the rest of the Summer we can just sit back, relax and enjoy it!  So this time around for the Template Challenge I felt like we needed to focus on Summer and celebrate it!  If you are having winter right now, just remember those Summer days and play along!  I’ve got two great Summer Templates for us to play with and you can use anything else in your Designer Digitals stash of products as well!

Here are our templates:

TemplateSummerMashUp TemplateSummerMashUpLW

 

Aren’t those both fun Templates?  There’s lots to work with there!  We had a couple of Creative Team Members from DD help to make pages to show how they Mashed Up these templates.

Sharon flipped both templates on their sides and then Mashed them.  How fun is that?!  She is so creative!  I love how she incorporated lots of the elements of the Layerworks and then added some more from another DD beach kit!  So fun and full of Summer!

Template Mash Upsarahorton_portaransas11

 

Sharon used the two templates; Layer Works No. 218Cathy Zielske’s Layered Template No. 113 and Dolphin Cove Scrapbook Collection.

Hillarey also showed us a brilliant way of using these two templates together!  I love how she made it her own here!  Then she added another fun title about her inside Summer fun at their house!  Totally cute and I love the fishy elements she used as well!
