Scrappin from A to Z with Kathryn Estry


Hi!  I'm Kathryn Estry, a designer here at MyMemories, and I'm starting my second round of episodes, From A to Z.  My goal is to give you a new idea with each letter so that you'll never be at a loss as to what to scrap or how to make your pages look amazing. Luckily for me, I have a brilliant Creative Team, and the inspiration layouts I use in this series were made by the talented ladies on my team. 

I'm hoping you'll see some things in my A to Z Blog Series that you want to try!  If you do take any of these ideas and run with them, I'd love to see your layouts!  Please post them in the MyMemories forum in this month's A to Z Challenge thread HERE. (link - http://forums.mymemories.com/?forum=466294) Everyone who posts a layout in my challenge thread this month will receive a surprise gift!

G is for ...

Grandparents!

There aren't too many things sweeter than grandparents with their grandkids.  Don't miss any opportunity to photograph this special love and to scrap these memories.  My CT has scrapped several "grand" photos, and I'm so proud of their work!  Here are some examples by Anita, Lix, Lori, Monica, and Terry.  Thank you, Ladies! 

Such a sweet page by Anita using my Autumn Dance



Liz used A Grateful Heart for this photo of her daughter with Grandma.




Lori chose Life-Defined for her grand photo.



This bright, cheery layout by Monica was made with Ali's Attic.



This lovely layout by Terry is a beautiful heritage page.  She used Marigold Place for her page.


Again, I invite you to visit my forum challenge, Scrapping with Kathryn from A to Z, and I hope to see your layouts with grandparents posted there!

Meet Feature Designer Brenian Designs





I started digital scrapbooking in the Fall of 2009 while spending 6 months over at Scotland with my now hubby. About two years ago, I started designing templates and then decided to give a try at designing scrapkits and the rest is history! Now I am really into planners and am now designing planner stickers and inserts. I love decorating my planner and just being creative in general. I have been married to my handsome Scotsman for almost seven years and we have an amazing seven year old son who is my world. I am a stay-at-home Mom, but design and work for a invitation company from home.

Documenting Your Life with ADB Designs




This is your story.  Do it YOUR way.  I write in my journal and scrap pages inspired by my journal entries. Two of my CT journal directly on their scrapbook pages and don't keep a separate paper journal. Others keep only a paper or computer journal and are waiting to create the scrapbook pages at a later date. There is no wrong way to do this, just pick up pen or mouse and DO IT. You can join me at any time with this series. You can scrap just the questions/prompts that inspire you, or all of them. You can scrap from the current question and go forward, or you can start at question 1 and move through them in order. 

Each post (every other week) I will share the current question/prompt and layouts created by myself, my creative team or scrapbooking friends.  

Note about sharing layouts from Cole:


We would LOVE for you to share YOUR layout's with us! Just create a 600x600 px jpg layout and email it to Cole npeak@storyrock.com subject line D.Y.L Layout!   With your permission, I will post it to the MyMemories BLOG DYL Series (right here), Instagram, Pinterest & Twitter.  Along with your layout, please do include the question/prompt number and the name of the My Memories designer(s) and the name of their product(s) you used.  If you would like to post it directly to our MyMemories Facebook wall please click HERE. You can also post your layouts in the MyMemories Forum HERE.

Question 36

Family time when celebrating our holidays is a very special time. So much of family history is centered around the celebrations of our national holidays...
You should be describing in your journal and in your layouts the seasonal traditions your family experienced ... the focus this week is on Thanksgiving.  
Here are some marvelous layouts from my creative team to provide you some inspiration:

Here are two layouts using my ALL GOOD GIFTS collection. It is a perfect collection for Thanksgiving.


  


I really like what Renee did with my WE TOGETHER TOGETHER collection. 



And Patty did a vintage layout to showcase a family photo from the past. Much like today, families take advantage of the holidays when we are all gathered together to have family photos taken. She used my WIND IN THE REEDS collection for it's more manly color scheme.



Happy Scrapping!

Here are the ideas I suggested for November. Please share your layouts in the My Memories Suite Forum under my November Challenge post. You can use whatever photos you want, these ideas are just suggestions.

Fall - What do you enjoy most about fall? Take some photos and share them with us. Do you walk in a certain area? What do the trees look like near your home?


Kit used is A Fall Day:


Outdoor Play - November are often the last days before winter starts. What do you love to do outside?

Kit uses is Boyish Earth


Here are some ideas for December:

Tree Hunting/Sleigh Rides - Do you celebrate Christmas and have a real or fake tree? Show us your tree traditions. Maybe your family goes on an annual sleigh ride, show us!

Christmas/Religious Celebration - Take photos and document your traditions. Tell us what you do celebrate, maybe Christmas, Hanukkah or Ramadan.

F is for ...

Frames!

An easy way to highlight your photos in your layouts is to frame them.  Many of my collections have matching frame sets to make scrapping really easy.  You can see them all HERE.  [link - http://www.mymemories.com/store/product_search?term=frames+kathryn]   Enjoy these pages by my talented Creative Team.

Kabra chose a pretty sweet frame from Daisy Mae.


I used Red, White, and Adorable for this 4th of July layout of my kids.


Liz's layouts below were made from Melly's Furever Friends, After Hours, and Grandma's Breezeway.





Lori's pages with Cowboy Spirit and May Scraps include frames from those collections.





In this layout, Yvonne cut frames out of a background paper from Ashland.


Again, I invite you to visit my forum challenge, Scrapping with Kathryn from A to Z, and if you make layouts with frames, remember to post them there!
