Story Scrapbook Challenge

Mother’s day this month in many countries, so I want you to tell us a story about your mother.  And I know this may hit a chord for some of you but it may be a good page to get your thoughts and feelings down.

Do you know your mother or do you not?  And even if you know your mother, do you really truly know her?  Please celebrate her on a page.  Or are there words left unsaid.  This is your chance to tell her.

What’s your relationship like, is there a time in your life that really stands out?  If you don’t have a mother is there a woman figure in your life that has taken her place?

Whether your mother is with us or not with us – is there something you would like to say to her?  Even if you don’t ever utter the words out loud, here’s your chance.

I do hope you will play along and join us in this challenge this month.

The fabulous Deborrah (DivaMom96) one of our guest creative team members, has made the most exquisite page with that amazing photograph of her mother as a young mother flushed with joy and love for her little bundle.

Supplies used by Deborrah:  Garden Trails Add-On Paper Pack,  Blendable Layers No. 33,  Garden Trails Blendable Layers,  Simply Painted Botanicals No. 01,  Blendables Layered Template No. 06.

And my page is created to apologise to my mother as to the behaviour of my brother and I.  Do we ever really grow up?

Supplies I have used:  Garden Trails Scrapbook Kit,  Garden Trails Paper Pack,
Garden Trails Stitch Pack,  Torn Templates No. 01,  Spill Frame Layers No. 12,  Flair Minis No. 01,  Painted Photo Borders No. 02.

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

Saturday Scraplift Inspiration!

Welcome to the Saturday Scraplift!

This weekend we are lifting Rachel and her wonderful Road Trip page!

scrapbooking layout inspiration

For my page I took inspiration from the paper strips, alphabet choice, the flairs and the horizontal format of the individual photos. But I made this page my own by mixing up those elements into a new composition.

Check out the lift team member Mielz did too! Another great take on the page!

And team member Deborrah’s page is a great inspiration too!

Creative Team Spotlight Scraplift: Pam Patterson

Our custom here at Designer Digitals is to use fifth Saturdays to spotlight one of our own Creative Team members, and this time it seemed fitting to honor our friend Pam Patterson whose recent passing saddened all of us. Pam and her husband John owned a family ranch in Montana, and her pages about their ranching life were an education about the sturdy stuff of which ranchers are made. Her love for her two sons and their families also filled her pages, and no one was a prouder grandma than Pam. Our three guest CTs were quick to volunteer to lift Pam, and I know her gallery will be a special treat for each of you. Here’s how Deborrah, Mirjam, and Kelly were inspired. 

Pam’s page:

Deborrah was inspired by Pam’s blended photo and the twist that highlights it. She also incorporated the simple and grungy background to keep the focus on her photo.

Credits: Patterning Palettes No. 02 Solids Paper Pack;  Artsy Vintage Value Pack No.01; Blendable Layers No. 66; Baskets of Joy Brushes and Stamps; Blendable Layers No. 67 {coming soon}

Pam’s page:

 I love that both Pam’s and Mirjam’s pages were inspired by photos of the beach. The cool blues are perfect, and I really like that sketchy brush on Mirjam’s page with the sea in the background.

Credits: Artsy Seaside VALUE Pack;  Watery Typecast Sentiments Brushes and Stamps No. 01; Painted Patterns Diamonds Brushes and Stamps No. 01; Watery Typecast Blends Brushes and Stamps No. 03; Edge Overlays No. 02; Edge Overlays No. 09; Pencil Line Twists Brushes and Stamps No. 02; Watery Bookshelf Dots No. 01; Watery Photo Masks No. 01; South Beach Scrapbooking Kit; Atlantic Element Pack; Artsy Layered Blends No. 01; Watery Spot Brushes and Stamps No. 10; Blendable Journalers No. 01; Dictionary Blendables: Beach No. 01; Curled Notebook Paper; Oceania Blendables; Collageable Journal Spots No. 01; Painted Lace Edgers No. 01; Far Away Fairyland Kit; Beach House Memories Brushes and Stamps; Delmar Shores Scrapbooking Kit; Coastal Kit; Flair Minis No. 01; Vintage Journal Spots No. 02

Pam’s page:

The page of Pam’s that Kelly chose featured a sunrise – Pam photographed some awesome landscapes! Kelly’s page features the sun at the end of the day, and she used warm yellows and oranges to highlight it.

 Credits: Blendable Layers No. 66; Bold Scripts: Take the Highway Brushes and Stamps; Determined Layered Template; Dictionary Blendables: Summer No. 01; Flourished Page Corners No. 01; Twisted Stitches No. 03 Neutrals; Vintage Blendable Layers No. 10; Watery Typecast Sentiments Brushes and Stamps No. 05; Wildwoods Scrapbook Kit; Wildwoods Solids Paper Pack

Pam’s gallery is a treasure trove of wonderful pages; I hope you’ll spend a little while browsing it and see how she inspires you. Remember to post your page in the Creative Team Spotlight Scraplift Gallery and in the April Challenge Sign In thread in the forum. Happy scrapping!

Saturday Scraplift Challenge: On the Diagonal

Good morning everyone!
I seem to be mostly scrapping single photos these days (often filched from my daughter’s facebook or instagram accounts!!), so I’m always on the lookout for new and interesting single photo layouts. This striking page by Kelly (wsprite_ad), caught my eye as being eminently scrapworthy!!!

I loved the stacked and tilted paper background, the single photo topped by a clustered border and the grand celebration of a family achievement that this layout is.

When I put it to the creative team, Linda (earlofoxford) and Liz (lizziet5) quickly agreed with me. I just love that the three of us all used Katie’s new Wildwoods Scrapbooking Collection (new in the store this week) to scraplift the same layout, and yet came up with three quite different pages for your inspiration today.

Linda ‘cut’ large triangles of patterned paper rather than using whole sheets, and used a series of photos rather than a single shot, with her clustered border running vertically rather than horizontally. I love that her page celebrates her lovely family at Easter time. It is such a fabulous lift!

As well as Katie’s new kit, Linda has used Edge Overlays No. 06, Around Words Brushes and Stamps No. 02, Classic Curled Photo Frames No. 05, From My Bookshelf Blendables No. 04 and Drop Shadow Styles No. 02. She used the triangles from the Layer Works No. 702 template.

Liz documents one of those everyday unexpected joys that we should all learn to focus on a little more. She has moved her stack of papers into a horizontal position, has stayed with the single photo and the cluster on top. I love the clean and simple look of her page.

Along with the Wildwoods Collection, Liz has used Thin Classic Photo Frames Curled and Flat No.01, Bold and Scripted Today Brushes and Stamps and Twisted Stitches No. 03 Neutrals.

I took the opportunity to document some hard family decision making at our place lately. Instead of stacking papers, I ‘cut’ slivers of paper to achieve a slightly different effect. My single photo is topped by a somewhat larger cluster, but I liked and used Kelly’s idea of surrounding her photo with text.

The only product I used outside of the new Wildwoods Collection is the Classic Curled Photo Frame (No. 07).

I hope that you will be as inspired by Kelly’s layout as we were! We’d love to see your diagonally stacked pages so please post them in the Saturday Scraplift Gallery. You can also join in with the rewards scheme to earn vouchers by using 100% Designer Digitals products. Keep track of which challenges you’ve completed in the April Challenges Sign In Thread. Happy Scraplifting!
