Saturday Scraplift: Multiply Your Design Skills

The gallery here at Designer Digitals is a never-ending supply of inspiration. I really like that we can save inspirational pieces to our favorites for further study. I took a trip through pages I’d saved for this week’s lift and found this gem by Audrey (adrianita) from back in February. I love those four columns that help showcase the adorable photos of her newborn son and the awesome cluster in the upper left that immediately catches the viewer’s eye. Three of my Creative Team friends joined me in lifting Audrey’s great page – see how you can be inspired.

Audrey’s page:  

Patsy (ptabbert) did a superb job creating a lovely tropical page by extending her photo across the four columns, and that tall palm tree is in perfect keeping with her design. Even her chevron brush work echoes the motion of the waves, and I like how her title overlaps her photo, integrating itself into the design of her page.

Kate’s (OKate) page takes us from the tropics to gorgeous New Hampshire fall color. Like Patsy, Kate filled the focal spaces of her design with a single stunning photo. I am a complete pushover for reflection shots, and Kate’s is perfection, down to the seasonal cluster and the descriptive words at the bottom of each column.

Liz (lizziet5) gives us every season, including four shots of her pretty and photogenic daughter – has anyone EVER seen a bad picture of Hayley? I didn’t think so! Liz’s page contains her signature soft tones and well-chosen elements to extend her seasonal theme. She made the design her own by rotating it 90 degrees.

Last fall we visited friends in North Carolina and had dinner with them at a restaurant I had read about in Southern Living. I got to indulge my love for photographing food, eating delicious food, and spending time with dear friends – win, win, win! And now, thanks to Audrey’s inspiration, I’ve scrapped the memory. Thank you, Audrey!

    Beautifully done by all.

    I can’t seem to reference what template was used.

    Thank you.

      Hi, there is no specific template required. Adrianita’s page does remind me of a very old template that is probably no longer in the store, but none of the scraplifts here have used that template.
