Scrapping from A to Z with Kathryn Estry



Hi!  I'm Kathryn, a designer here at My Memories, and I'm back with my A to Z Series.  With every post, I'll show you a style, element, or other scrap secret to make your pages look amazing. The talented ladies on my Creative Team give me plenty of inspirational layouts, and I'm happy to share them with you!

I know you like FREE scrap supplies, right?  I'll show you a couple of layouts in each of my blogs posts, and I invite you to try some of your own! Post them in my matching Challenge Thread, Scrapping with Kathryn from A to Z. [http://forums.mymemories.com/?forum=466294]  Everyone who posts a layout in this month's thread will receive from me the prize I have posted with this month's challenge.  To make it extra sweet, your layout can be about anything I've shown you in ANY of my A to Z challenges! 

V is for ...

Vacations!

If there was ever a couple who loved to vacation it would have to be Yvonne and Jaap.  Yvonne has made these lovely layouts with photos of their wonderful travels.





Remember to head over to my A to Z Challenge, check out this month's prize, and show me a layout you've made with any of my A to Z ideas.

Documenting you Life with ADB Designs





I am all about Heritage and Vintage,  I am the family historian and spend hours lost in genealogical materials and nothing thrills me more than finding the evidence to prove or disprove a part of the family tree puzzle.  You probably already had that figured out. 

I also just started releasing a new collection every month that is specially designed to fit the needs of folks like myself. 

My first heritage collection was THE TIME TRAVELER, followed by THE WHITE CITY BECKONS and now CHRISTMAS PAST.  Next month I am bringing you ALL THAT JAZZ.


 

 

 

   

 

 

 



Now that the holidays are over and you have a moment to breath it is time to start scrapping those holiday photos, both past and present. The CHRISTMAS PAST collection is specially designed for images from the past but it also handles current images very well.  I create products that provide maximum usage and that speak to numerous eras.


I love sharing the layouts of my Creative Team; they are wonderful for inspiration and scrap lift opportunities. 

 

 

 

 



Until we get the chance to visit again, happy scrapping!

U is for ...

Uppercase Letters!

One of the features I like to include on some of my pages is a large capital letter.  For this post, instead of showing you my Creative Team's layouts, I'm using some of my own because these 5 are very special to me.

These sweet faces are my 5 grandkids.  You'll notice that on each of their layouts, I've included their initial as a large element.  (You have to look for Olivia's O.)  I have these pages framed in my hallway, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE seeing them every day!

Lincoln and Jack:



Olivia and Charlie:



and little Lucy:


I wanted them to coordinate, so for all of them, I've used pieces from these two collections:

Documenting you life with ADB Designs



Winter is here in North America, on the East Coast and in some places in the South that rarely get winter weather -- like snow --!  But here in Eastern Nebraska it has been a fairly mild winter so far, and NO snow to speak of. I hope you stay warm and comfortable where ever you are.

Q63 

How would you describe your childhood to your children or grandchildren? What are some of your memories of childhood and how did they shape who you became as an adult?  How do you think the children in your life will describe THEIR childhood when they grow up?

I have a new collection called BLUSHING BEAUTY that is perfect for pictures of childhood (and adults too!). The palette is fresh and modern, with aqua, coral, and lilac. 




My Creative Team completed a variety of layouts from this collection but they found the collection to be perfect for images of children. Here are some of their layouts for inspiration.


 



  

  


Happy Holidays and Happy Scrapping too!
