Scrapping from A to Z with Kathryn Estry

Hi!  I'm Kathryn, and I design for My Memories.  I'm now at the end of my fifth round of my scrap series, From A to Z! With every post, I'll give you an inspiration to make your pages look amazing. The talented ladies on my Creative Team give me plenty of 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.

Z is for ...

Zigzag!

 An idea for you scrapping might be to place your page elements in a zigzag across your page.  Another is to use papers with a zigzag pattern.  It's this second idea I'm going to show you today.  Using my collections shown below, my wonderful Creative Team ladies chose to use papers with zigzags.

Kay made this pretty page with Just You and Me.  You can see the zigzags around the edge of the page.


Enjoy this page by Kabra using Our Little Gymnast.


Here's a subtle zigzag background in Tanja's page with School Days.


Both Kabra and Kay have zigzag backgrounds in their pages with Work in Progress.



I hope you enjoyed all of these zigzag examples.  Thank you, Ladies!

Remember to head over to my A to Z Challenge, check out the prize, and show us a page that you've made with a zigzag pattern!

Free Weekly Kit by Featured Designer: PerlineDesign

 

We would love to welcome PerlineDesign as this week's Featured Designer!

What is your biggest fear?
I am really afraid of spiders.  Even small ones.  I can now accept them in the garden because I know they are very useful, but never in the house.

What is the best gift that you have been given?
Three years ago, my son gave me a chihuahua for my birthday.  He had rescued him because the previous owner did not want him.  When he first came with this cute little dog, I instantly fell in love with him.  So, he decided to give him to me.  It's the best present I have received in my whole life!

What would you do if you won the lottery?
I would give a big part to my son so that life would be easier for him and with the rest, I would buy a house near the sea in a sunny country and travel around the world.

What's your favorite movie?
City of Angel's with Meg Ryan and Nicolas Cage.

City of Angels tells the story of an angel (Cage) who falls in love with a mortal woman (Ryan), and wishes to become human in order to be with her.  With the guidance of a man (Dennis Franz) who has already made the transition from immortality, the angel falls and discovers the human experience.


What was your favorite subject in school?
My favorite subject was languages, especially English.  I should have been a teacher.  Instead, I taught how to use computers to working people (Microsoft Office) and later to Seniors.

To finish off we would love to share some of PerlineDesign's favorite layouts:
 
Layout out from Gardening Time
Layout out from So Cute Cats
Layout out from Sewing Passion
Layout out from Play on the Beach
Layout out from Panda Land

DYL: feat. COTTAGE RETREAT and gifts

 

The Cottage Retreat Digital Scrapbook Collection is vintage, romantic and family-friendly. It's inspired by family, heritage and all things warm, cozy, "cottagecore" and country chic.
The color palette is soft browns, creams and peachy-pinks with hints of greens. The collection is season-less and era-less, making it ideal for any projects you may have.

Scrapbooking Prompt(s) / Question 147

  • create a page celebrating the cottagecore look. (According to the Urban Dictionary, Cottagecore is an aesthetic and fashion style inspired by romanticized rural and farm lifestyles interpretations. Think rare countryside scenery, nostalgic peasant dresses, rustic handmade crafts, and artisanal creations in fashion and homeware.)
  • create a page about your favorite country spot
I have a gift for you from this elegant country collection: a beautiful stacked background created by Creative Team member, Lana. Just click on the preview to go to my store and add it to your shopping cart.

I hope you find inspiration from the layouts of my awesome Creative Team. Here are their layouts along with the previews from the collection. Check out the variety of layout settings! 

Be sure and scroll to the end of the post for links to additional gifts from this collection and others.
























I am so pleased when I see layouts created with my collections.  I would love to have you share them with me via one or both of my challenge threads in the forum.
Check my forum challenges for more gifts from this collection (and others)! 

Be sure and check today's MyMemories Newsletter (July 6) for another gift from this collection! (preview below)



Happy scrapping!
