Scrappin 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.  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!  

W is for ...

White Space!

With white space, less is more!  Many scrappers know that if they leave a large area of their background paper open, this "white space" gives more emphasis to the embellished photo.  Here are some wonderful examples of the use of white space by Judith, Kathy, and Liz.  Thank you, Ladies!

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

My goodness it is cold here ... and snowy ... it is February so I should expect this. It is Nebraska and that is another reason not to be surprised.  The kids have had four snow/cold days off from school so far and another could be coming soon.


Did you have "snow days" during your childhood school years?  Did you stay inside and play board games, read a book, watch TV or were you an outdoor adventurer building snow forts and snowmen and throwing snow balls?

My newest collection WINTER FREEZE is perfect for scrapping the photos taken of kids at play both indoors and outdoors. So grab a cup of your favorite hot beverage and get some scrapping done.





And here are some layouts from my Creative Team to inspire you and give you some ideas for scrap lifting.  Also note, the collection is NOT limited to layouts featuring children only.





Thank you and I would love to see what you create with this collection or any of my designs!

Documenting your life with ADB Designs

The snow is piling up outside. The trees are covered with a thick and heavy white blanket. The air sparkles with shards of watery glass.  It is BEAUTIFUL outside my window and the perfect scene for a stunning wedding.


Sometimes the weather is as much of a participant in an event as are the people who attend.  Think back to a special time and how the weather played a role in the activities of the day. What was the weather like for your wedding? For you parents wedding? For that special anniversary or event?

My wedding was at the end of September.  In many places, that is NOT winter, however, in Wyoming it sometimes is.  In 1984 it was.  There was a blizzard the day before the wedding and attendees arriving by air were flying into Denver and then driving north to Cheyenne in "white-out" conditions. Thankfully everyone arrived safely.  The church was beautiful and after the ceremony, Jim & I walked to the reception a block away in a "winter wonderland", much like the one outside my window right now.

My WINTER WEDDING collection is on retiring clearance right now. 70% off and going into the vault in Feb.  It is perfect for wedding and special event photos, regardless of the time of year.




Here are some stunning layouts from my Creative Team to provide inspiration and "scrap lift" opportunities:






My THE VINTAGE ROMANTIC challenge in the MyMemories forum is featuring this collection and I would love to have you post your "special event" layout and earn the posting bonus.  Here is the LINK to the challenge for all the details.

Happy scrapping!
