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. Everyone who posts a layout in my challenge thread this month will receive a surprise gift!
One of the cleanest looks in scrapbooking and one of the easiest to create is a blocked page! Blocked pages are made in little sections, either squares, rectangles, or other simple shapes. Here are some examples my CT made with the blocking technique. Thanks to Anita, Julie, Liz, and Yvonne!
First of all, a super simple blocking page by Julie using a fun kit, Kissy Kissy. Even the basic beginner can do a page like this one.
Yvonne has a simple blocked design here with a few more embellishments. She used coffee With Robin, one of my Creative Team dedication collections.
This page is also by Yvonne, and she blocked photos and papers and added embellishments, all from Yum Yum Garden. Then she grouped the entire blocked section and slanted it on the page. Easy, right?
Here are some fancier blocked pages by Anita and Liz.
Why not try a few blocked pages the next time you scrap? Again, I invite you to visit my forum challenge, Scrapping with Kathryn from A to Z. :)
