Scrapping from A to Z with Kathryn Estry


Hi!  I'm Kathryn Estry, a designer here at MyMemories, and this is 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. Everyone who posts a layout in my challenge thread this month will receive a surprise gift!

P is for ...

Page Frames!

One way to make your page really stand out is to frame the entire page.  An easy way to make a page frame is to layer papers.  Enjoy these pages with page frames that were made by my CT ladies, Kabra, Kathy, Liz, Michelle, Monica, and Yvonne.  Thank you, Ladies!









Make sure to try this on a layout soon.  It's an easy way to give added dimension to your page.  Please post your page frame layouts in my forum challenge, Scrapping with Kathryn from A to Z! Remember everyone who posts a layout gets you a free gift from me.

Sunshine Inspired Designs Tip

 
 
 
 
 
Hi there, I'm Ania, the designer behind Sunshine Inspired Designs. And I'm here to share with you my favorite scrapbooking tips.

Big Photos as Your Background

I’m a fan of including big photos into my layouts. They really draw attention and focus to your layout, but they also work really well as part of the background.
Here are 3 ways to use your big photos on the layout:
1. Use your photo as a background. You can use blend modes or leave it as it is. Here are a few examples from Sunshine Inspired Designs Team.

2. Use masks to blend your big photo with the background. Check out examples from the team.

3. Add a border on one side of the photo.

Documenting your life with ADB Designs


It is spring and thoughts turn to love in all parts of the world. My new Petite Bundle is an homage to love and is called THE PROMISE OF ROSES. It is on super discount right now -- only $1.20 per product or $6.97 for the Bundle! The collection is perfect for the question / prompt this week.

Q45 

What was your wedding like? 

Large or small ... family only ... entire town invited ... traditional to your parents heritage ... special religious meaning ... colors ... special cake or food served ... what flowers were a part of the ceremony ... why did you make the choices you did ... 

Family photographs are often taken at weddings, everyone is there ... show us those too!  

As varied as people are, so are our celebrations!

Here are some lovely layouts from my creative team to provide some inspiration and to show you that the collection is also wonderful for a variety of images, including children.




 Here are previews from the collection so you can see the variety of products available. AND it is my featured collection for my April challenge in the forum. All you need to do is complete a layout to receive the posting bonus! 

If I had a rose for every time I thought of you, I'd be picking roses for a lifetime.[Swedish Proverb]

Scrap your feelings and sentiments with Caroline B.


Hello, I am Caroline B., a long time designer at Mymemories, and Art Lover, but you may know that already if you follow my Inspired by Art challenges. 
If, like me, you are shy and introvert, scrapbooking (like Art) is an easy way to say or express what you feel by using another media than words.
So I will propose HERE a WORD to trigger, to start off, to launch a mental process wich will inspires you to make new pages and express yourselves.
Today let's be ANGRY
