Saturday Scraplift Challenge – One Photo Focus

Happy Digital Scrapbooking Day! Here at Designer Digitals, we’re celebrating for an entire week with a sale running until next Friday at 6am EST. Every day we will have a new 99c item as well as a batch of 1,000 random items marked down 30%. These specials will only be at sale price for 24 hours. AND if you use coupon code DSD20, you’ll receive an extra 20% off any item in the store! Now how’s all that for a bargain?!

But before you head off to the move everything from your wish list into your basket, you may want to take a look at this gorgeous page by Brenda (bbe) that we’re lifting this week because not only will you admire Brenda’s creativity, you may also spot a product or two that you want to cash in on in the sale. I should also say now that this is a bit of a bumper post today because there were quite a few who wanted in on this lift!

I love the design of Brenda’s page below, the glorious Autumnal colours and that cute photo. All the focus sits in the centre of the page with some super white space letting all the detail shine.

Lynnie (grandma lynnie)was inspired to create this beautifully romantic page where she shifted the design vertically and the photo to the left so that the pretty cluster of the readymade love border had room to compliment the lovely image. Perfect placement of the worded labels too. Congratulations to the happy couple!

Here is Lynnie’s supply list: Cameron Essentials Paper PackCameron Element PackClusters of Love Brushes and Stamps No. 01Sketchy Sentiment Spots Brushes and Stamps No. 02Vintage Side Lift Photo Frames No. 01Heart Alphabet No. 03  – Katie Pertiet, and Readymade Layers: Love Borders No. 01 – Studio Double-D.

Julie (Maggie Mae) took the lift as an opportunity to scrap this lovely fur baby photo. The blended backdrop and watery foliage soften the page beautifully and the veneer elements compliment the photo and add great texture. Who could resist those eyes?! A lovely lift!

Julie used the following: Krafty Tonals Paper Pack No. 2Curated Favorites Paper Pack No. 9: In Blue (used as blended overlay), Mixed Media Leaf Layers No. 1, Watery Foliage No. 15, Connected Wood Words No. 9Curated Team Scrapbook Mix No. 18 (beads) – all Katie Pertiet; Readymade Layers Fall Borders No. 9 and Readymade Layers Fall Borders No. 10 – Studio Double-D.

Sylvia (smcloone) went with a cute portrait photo for her lift but kept the Autumnal colours going strong. Brilliant brushwork and the neat cluster make this a truly eye catching lift that makes me want to head out and kick about in those leaves!

Here’s the products that Sylvia used: Mixed Media Leaf Layers No1, Watery Grids Brushes and Stamps No. 9, Mixed Media Bird Layers No1, Hello Fall Layered TemplateFall Clusters Brushes and Stamps No. 3, Vintage Photo Frames No. 42, Graphic Simplicity Brushes and Stamps No. 01Good Day Element PackFar Away Fairyland Solids Paper Pack – Katie Pertiet and Readymade Layers: Fall Borders No. 08 – Studio Double-D.

Rachael (myssp) took a bold stance with the lift, not only in colour but also shaking it up with a vertical border. I love how the soft, watery grid brushwork wraps this lift up nicely. A very striking and beautifully masculine lift!

As much as I wanted to stick with the Autumnal colours of the lift because Autumn happens to be my favourite time of year, I just don’t have any Autumn images. I really need to fix that! So… I opted for a muted tones of blue/grey/mustard while scrapping my new favourite image of Jack. I love Brenda’s page design so I pretty much followed along and I’m really pleased with the outcome. Thanks for the inspiration Brenda!
