DT Share: Love You


Just a quick share from me today. I've been playing with the lovely blue hues of the Simple Stories Heart line recently and made this page with a little story about my youngest putting on some toy glasses and pretending to be his Dad at the computer.

When I spread a title across two different parts of my page eg patterned paper and photo as in this page I try and put a solid line from the letters over the join between the two elements. It didn't work for this page and the effect of the join in the hole of my 'O' looked a little weird. So I simply took the inside of the O off the sticker sheet- and added a heart to make a feature of it.

Gallery Pick

I'm definitely a sucker for traditional Christmas colours which is one of the reasons this layout from our gallery by Jules44 caught my eye. I also love that she framed her LO- which is a great technique for helping a page to feel finished. The paper strips beside her photos look very effective and are a great way to use up scraps too! But my favourite thing about this page is the story. I love that her photos have spanned two time frames! And that the story is a then and now comparison between the Christmas tradition of her childhood and the fact that she carries it on now. The way she has split the journalling is also a great technique to show the stories are separate but part of a whole. Thanks Jules44- I'm definitely going to lift this story idea!

Gallery Pick

How much fun is this page by Deb W in our gallery the second thing that caught my eye after that gorgeous photo was that splat on the bottom of the page- such a whimsical addition. I also like Deb's Column design which is a great one to use when scrapping one photo. Thanks for sharing this cutie in our gallery Deb.

2nd Monthly Challenge ~ Scraplift yourself!

I made the page above recently using the October Afternoon Silent Night Range- (in store soon).The Diagonal line across the page is not a design I would normally use. But I did like the way this page turned out so I wanted to have a play with the design on another page.

As you can see I have turned the design 90 degrees and changed up the location of the title I think I like this one better than the first. I enjoyed scrapbooking this way because it came together fast as most of the design choices were already made for me.

So my challenge to you is to take a page you've done before and scraplift (copy) some or all of the elements of your design. 

Supplies used: Bazzill Basics Cardstock, Simple Stories Heart: Forever in my heart, Elements 2, Cardstock Stickers, Washi Tape, Kaiser Mist: Yellow, Alphas: Thickers, and Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type.
