Saturday Scraplift: A series workout

Hiya, this week I’ve chosen this great page by Karen (Oswegograd)! I love pages showing a series of photos, they lead the eye through the story. Love the multiple layers of border too. karenssl_blog

This was a popular choice, and three members of the creative team were eager to try a lift. Sara was inspired by the vertical lines in the inspiration page, as well as the ripped strips under the title. I love how Sara’s photos tell the story of the day so well!

Kelly decided the vertical placement of the photos suggested a page with a long photo. This works perfectly, love the black and white photo with that coloured background, and the fun title work!kellyssl_blog

DesignerDigitals Hot Page of the Week, April 18, 2015

The storytelling that Amy did with this page is priceless. When we go through difficult times we don’t always get those stories scrapbooked. But Amy told the story of her struggle beautifully and it is so uplifting. Perfect page Amy!

The Long Wait

Getting Artsy with Digital Scrapbooking: Watery

Good Tax Morning to everybody. To cheer you up on this day of gloom we are bringing you a fun new challenge this morning. Katie has created this gorgeous freebie, which you can find right  HERE

As you can see it is a PSD file, which means you can add different things or colors and clip them to the separate layers. So fun!! Check out the examples I have for you:
Joanne (Jcaruth910) created this stunner:
See how she clipped a photo to the background layer of the mask and then added matching colors to the rest? It’s just beautiful! Here are the supplies she used:
Katie Pertiet: Blendable Layers No. 21, Wood Veneer Postage Photo Frames No. 01,
Touch Up Paint Brushes and Stamps No. 05, Typed and Scripted Spring Brushes and Stamps, Edge Overlays No. 07, Messed Up Overlays No. 04, Blendable Layers No. 23
Lynn Grieveson: Margot Kit
Merr (digigrandma) added these gorgeous colors to her mask. She pulled them from the pretty flowers in the photo she added on top.

Isn’t it fun? Here is what she used:
K. Pertiet: Watery Sentiments Brushes and Stamps (new), Curated Mix Scrapbooking Kit No. 23, Cabana White Solid Paper Single, Spot Dots No. 09, Old World Ornaments Brushes and Stamps No. 03, Stacked Vintage Photo Frames, Collage Ephemera No. 2, Flair Minis No. 01, Watery Spots Brushes and Stamps No. 09, Srping Twists No. 01, Splatters Brushes and Stamps No. 04, Lifted Wings No. 02, Pinned Pearls No. 01, doily is from Bloese Element Pack,
L. Grieveson: Scrap Express No. 180

I had the same ideas for my page
I clipped my photo to the background and added the colors from the photos I placed on top, creating a little extraction to give it some dimension.

Here are my supplies:
K. Pertiet: blendable layers No.11 (new), Photoclusters No. 49 (new and altered), artsy freebie, blendable layers No.29, Shadowed n scripted No.1
The possibilities are endless. I hope you are feeling inspired and I am looking forward to seeing your pages in the Artsy Gallery. Please place a link to your page in the April challenge Thread .

The Story Scrapbook Challenge

Before you dive into this challenge I want you to stop what you’re doing and think.  For this challenge I want you to tell a story about what is on your mind RIGHT NOW.    How often have we mentioned that scrapbooking is a very cathartic activity, we can find so many answers to questions we didn’t even know we were asking in the pages we create.

So right now, right this very minute now, what’s on your mind?   Do you have a busy schedule coming up, stressed about a future event, are you planning a party, are you worried about the future, are you expecting a baby bundle, are you looking at the housework and everything else is appealing to you except that task, are you studying for the future, are you worried about how you are going to pay the next bill, are you excited for a holiday, are you planning something wonderful, are you just living day to day, are you only just existing or are you bursting at the seams???

This can be a really great chance to show your state of mind right this very minute, and in the future looking back you’ll feel proud you got through a tough time, or pffft why on earth were you worried about something, or happy to look back on some terrific memories.

Easy?  Well get to it.  It’s your story to tell.

The creative team have jumped on board with some wonderful pages.

Trace (tracermajig) has made an incredible change in her life and her health and wellbeing and she questions herself as to why she left it so long because she feels so wonderful right now.  I adore this.


Supplies used by Trace:    Blendables Layered Template No. 52,  Clock Parts No. 09,  Emilia Kit (tape measure),  Ledger Paper Pieces Spring No. 01,  Margot Kit,  Pinned Pearls No. 01,  Worn Tops Do-it-Yourself.

Liz (lizj) has put together a list page, these are great pages as over the years what you are loving and feeling and experiencing right now will be different than last year, or different again from next year or ten years from now.  We all ought make one of these pages.


Supplies used by Liz:   Clipped Stacks No. 04,  Curated Studio Mix Scrapbooking Kit No. 11,  Wood Veneer Numbers,  Bold and Scripted Brushes and Stamps No. 07,  Blendable Layers No. 28.  Date Blocks Brushes + Stamps No. 01,  Touring Tags and Labels,  DoodleDo Frames No. 11 Brushes and Stamps,  Pinked Circles: Pink,  and freebie tab journaler from Designer Digitals/Katie Pertiet/ Ad 11 15 09.

As for my page, I was knee deep in packing for a weekend away and decided to scrapbook instead, as you do right?  Or not!  So my thoughts on this page were very very real, I was packing for a race I was doing and I was frantic about not forgetting to pack my runners.


Supplies I have used:   Naturally Krafty No. 12 Paper Pack,  Enchanted Easter Solids Paper Pack,  Catch a Rainbow Paper Pack,  Ledger Grid Overlays No. 01,  Pocket Cards: Notebook No. 01,  Thin Classic Photo Frames Curled and Flat No. 01,  Flair Minis No. 01,  Worn Tops Do-it-Yourself.

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

Post your pages in the Scrapbook Challenge Gallery and don’t forget when you use ALL DD product on your challenge page you should post a link of your page in the April Challenge Participation thread so that it will count toward your savings in the rewards program.  Everyone’s a winner!

Creative Team Member Shannamay (Sharon) has shared with us her collection of Little Village Shops. They are simply darling and I can see why she loves them.

Saturday Scraplift: Over the Top

I’m a big fan of pages that have a photo stretching across the page.  This page by Kim really caught my eye. I was drawn to the photo across the top and the additional complementary photo to carry the theme or tell the story. I decided it would be a fun inspiration piece this week.


This week two of our Creative Team members used the inspiration piece to create their own pages.  Kelly (mugsbigsis) created such a fun page featuring her adorable Hermes! I like how she tells the story with the two photos, The doodles and paw prints add a fun touch to the page.

Looking at Me

For her page she used DoodleDo Frames No. 05 Brushes and Stamps,  DoodleDo Borders Brushes and Stamps No. 01, Doodledo Circles Brushes and Stamps No. 02, Talk About It Brushes and Stamps No. 01,  Curated Studio Mix Scrapbooking Kit No. 21 and Journal Keepers Layered Templates No. 01 by Katie Pertiet and Just Because Mini-Kit, Walden Kit, and Tate Kit by Lynn

Our second example is a vibrant nautical themed page by Sharon (Shannamay). The colors are perfect with her theme and I really like her creative lettering along with the nautical accents. That picture of fish and chips really looks yummy!

Fav Spot

Sharon used Anchors Away Solids Paper Pack,  Anchors Away Element Pack, Oceania Element Pack, Ripped Vintage Photo Frames No. 05, and Bold and Graphic Sentiments Brushes and Stamps No. 02 by Katie Pertiet

I loved the picture of my grandson riding his bike on the trail but had not come up with a way to use it. Using it across the top I was able to add the fun “macho” pose to complete the story. For my page I used Canvas Cardstocks Paper Pack No. 20Almost There KitHello Autumn Scrapbook KitReadymade Borders: Fall No. 02Brushed Words Boys Brushes and StampsArt Class Frames No. 03Abisko Scrapbook KitBrielle Scrapbooking Kit, and Alandia Tropics Kit.


I hope you found some inspiration your next page and will play along this week. Be sure to post your pages in the Saturday Scraplift Gallery! Don’t forget that all pages posted for the challenge, and using 100% Designer Digitals products will be eligible for the rewards program, so be sure keep to track of that too in the April Challenge Thread.
