Documenting your life with ADB Designs


The last blast of summer...this is what I was thinking about when I created The Painted Garden.  I am not quite ready to jump into autumn. I still have summer photos of grandchildren to scrap. I still have flower pictures to scrap (I love close ups).  I needed a soft and beautiful garden collection in the watercolor style so many of  us love.

Q80 (prompt)

I have heard several people bemoan the fact that many of the photos in "the box" they inherited are not of people but rather: flowers, neighbors, places visited by their parents and grandparents and more. I understand the frustration of the genealogist, however, this is an opportunity to scrap the photos you have and TELL A STORY about the taker of the photo. Journaling becomes the reason for the page and the photos help reveal the personality of who you are telling about.  Try it, you'll like it. LOL

Here it is a page starter gift from THE PAINTED GARDEN, a beautiful kit for multiple photos and story telling:

And here is THE PAINTED GARDEN COLLECTION and some beautiful layouts from my Creative Team to provide you with ideas you might incorporate into your own layouts.

Happy scrapping,

Scrapping from A to Z with Kathryn Estry


Hi!  I'm Kathryn, and I design for My Memories.  Welcome to my fourth round of my scrap series, From A to Z! 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 your layouts in my matching Challenge Thread, Scrapping with Kathryn from A to Z. []  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!  Now, on to today's idea.

J is for ...


We're women so we must love our bling, right?  Jewels are so pretty, so I've included them in several of my page kits, but one of mine that's loaded with jewels is called Crystal Pixels.  See how Lana, Liz, Lori, Pia, Rochelle, and Yvonne have used jewels in their layouts.

Remember to head over to my A to Z Challenge, check out the prize, and show me a layout where YOU've included a jewel or two.

Documenting your life with ADB Designs


Summer is about to end with school is starting all over the country, however, if you are like me that does not mean you have all your summer photos scrapped!  My newest Page Kit, called Fresh Watermelon, is perfect for fun summer photos and will help you get caught up. 

August was always the hottest month, in Kansas where I grew up, and staying cool enough to go to sleep when there was no central air conditioning was a major task.  I remember putting my PJs in the freezer, and when it was time to go to bed -- hoping I would be asleep before they warmed up. LOL

Q79 / prompt

Scrap some of your childhood summer time memories. If you don't have any photos to accompany the memory, use embellishments from a kit and just highlight the text of your journaling.  Your story is important. It crosses generations and brings understanding.

I have a wonderful page starter cluster as a gift to help you get started on your layout. Just click on the preview to go to my store and drop it in your shopping cart.

Here are the Fresh Watermelon previews and some examples of layouts from my Creative Team for inspiration.

Happy scrapping!
