Saturday Scraplift Challenge – Take Your Pick!

There’s two reasons to be happy this Saturday! Of course, it’s our regular Saturday Scraplift challenge but it’s also National Scrapbook Day (NSD) and here at Designer Digitals we are already celebrating! Every day through Tuesday there will be a different category marked down 30% AND if you use coupon code NSD20, you will get an additional 20% off ANY item in the store. We will also have a 99c item every day as well!

We also have 16 new items this week with one priced at just 99c. The remaining items are marked down 30%, all through 7am EST on Wednesday.

So onto this week’s Saturday Scraplift Challenge! It’s a real pleasure to give a shout out for this super page by Mel (Britgirl). I love Mel’s style of scrapping, the way she pulls together a diverse choice of elements into a terrific design to create her masterpieces. Such creativity!

Linda (earlofoxford) jumped right in on the lift, switching up the ampersand to a number 2 and creating this fun page of her two grandchildren as they dressed for Halloween. I love all the blues of the photo stack, the seasonal masking top left and bottom right, and the array of patterned paper adorning the number 2 is wonderful!

Here’s a list of products that Linda used: Tundra Paper Pack – The Grunge Source; Chalkboard Photo Masks No. 01 Brushes and StampsHalloween Overlays No. 02Vintage Edge Overlays No. 03Fine Line Twists Brushes and Stamps No. 02Numbered Layered Template PackPainted Quatrefoil Pencil Lines Paper Pack No. 01Calne Add-On Paper PackBotanical Colors Cerulean Meadow Paper PackAnchors Away Paper PackBit of Bokeh: Ice Paper PackARToptions Splash No. 01 Paper Pack, Alandia Paix Paper PackPencil Line Patterns Paper Pack No. 01Roughed Up Photo Mats: Ledger No. 02Roughed Up Photo Mats: Polka DotsCandied Christmas Roughed Up Photo MatsBatty Mini MixBrilliant Love: Roughed Up Pocket CardsCedar Crest Roughed Up Photo MatsArt Class Frames No. 02Musical Epoxies No. 01Little Prince Element PackFastener Basics No. 01Drop Shadow Styles No. 02 – Katie Pertiet; Clear Thru Alphabet No. 10 – Maplebrook Studios.

Guest CT member, Diane, (dvhoward55) picked up on the ‘ampersand’ in Mel’s design and created her lift, working magic with the neutral tones and beautiful brushwork. A gorgeous lift with the image all set to pop against the unusual photo stack!

Diane’s supply list: Simple Scripts Brushes and Stamps No 1, Curated Studio Mix Scrapbooking Kit No. 09Curated Studio Mix Scrapbooking Kit No. 05Curated Studio Mix Scrapbooking Kit No. 16Collage Stacks No. 02, Blendable Layers No. 18Blendable Layers No. 46Blendable Layers No. 58Blendable Layers No. 64Blendable Layers No. 88 – all Katie Pertiet.

Mel’s page took Sherry (digi371) down the heritage route. It’s so special to have heritage stories to scrap and even more special when you have images too. Sherry’s done a grand job with the blending and brushwork, I love the handwritten font and how the layered border anchors all the detail of the page perfectly!

We all know that the SSL can often push us beyond our comfort zones, opening our minds to use products or a design feature that we may not normally use, and I love how Debi (beehive50) took on the lift and incorporated aspects of it with some of her own signature style. Her minimal blending of the note paper edge and the hand scripted brush is gorgeous and I love the vibrancy of the image! So Debi… and a great lift!

Debi used the following: Everlasting Remix Solids Paper PackThin Classic Photo Frames Curled and Flat No. 01Love Twists Brushes and Stamps No. 01Hand Scripted Daily Brushes and Stamps No. 01Flair Minis No. 01 – all Katie Pertiet.

Mel’s page certainly challenged me! For days, I had three different psd files open, moving stash between them until I finally reached my happy place with this one. I was determined to use the big ampersand but oh boy, rotating the text to the left of my photo cluster, that was hard! But after all said and done, I think this is one of my all time favourite pages of mine… thanks for the inspiration Mel!

Here’s what I used: Vintage Garden Solids Paper Pack No. 01Vintage Garden Add-On Paper Pack No. 01Vintage Press: Blush Paper PackCambrianna Paper PackArlesey Paper PackArtistry de Blanco Paper Pack, Vintage Blendable Layers No. 06Colorful Paint Layers No. 03Painted Patterns Hearts Brushes and Stamps No. 02Vintage Photo Frames No. 36Tabbed Frames Brushes and Stamps No. 02Fresh Vintage: Albia Element PackFresh Vintage: Clare Element PackVintage Press: Blush Element PackFaringdon Element PackSimple Scripts Brushes and Stamps No. 01Vintage Flashcards: TravelerVintage Taped Sentiments No. 02Assorted Basic Stitching – Katie Pertiet; Just Linens Paper Pack No. 60 – Maplebrook Studios.

So whether you choose a punctuation symbol, a number or even a letter of the alphabet, I hope you’re inspired to take on the lift… when you’re done, post your page in the Saturday Scraplift Challenge gallery and remember, if you use all Designer Digitals products, you can link your page in the May 2018 Challenge Participation Thread so you can earn yourself a coupon for the store!

Remember too, the NSD specials in the store!

Till next time, take care and happy scrapping!
