DYL: feat. Sanctuary Collection by Diane, ADB Designs


My Sanctuary Digital Scrapbook Collection is a peaceful and calming collection of elements relating to the idea of shelter and refuge. It's a perfect collection for scrapping nearly any subject.

The colors of teal, turquoise, red and rust, with accents of green, brown and white are vivid and rich, all the better for expressing the feelings that these beautiful images evoke. Elements include a clock, watering can, butterfly, ribbons, flowers, foliage and more.

Scrapbooking Prompt(s) / Question 149

  • Scrap a page featuring a peaceful experience (vacation, trip to the library, trip to the spa, whatever).
  • Scrap a page of journaling -- tell about your favorite place of retreat.
  • Scrap a page about a simple quiet moment at home.
I have a gift for you from this lovely Collection: a beautiful decorated background paper created by Creative Team member, Lana. Just click on the preview to go to my store and add it to your shopping cart.

Be sure to keep scrolling for information on additional gifts from this collection.

I hope you find inspiration from the layouts of my awesome Creative Team. Here are their layouts along with the previews from the collection.

The variety of layouts really shows how much you can do with this collection. 

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.

Scrapping from A to Z with Kathryn Estry

Hi!  I'm Kathryn, and I design for My Memories.  I am now in my round #6 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.

C is for ...


When I started designing back in 2003, I realized pretty quickly that I loved to design in 2 different styles, and I'm still finding myself going in one of these two directions when I design scrapbook kits.  One is pretty, and I want those kits to be as pretty as I can make them.  The other is Cute, and that's what I'm focusing on today.  I try to make my cute kits over-the-top cute, and I have a lot of them.  My Creative Team does wonders with my kits, and I hope their pages give you plenty of inspiration!

Below you'll see 4 of my cutest kits and 4 layouts with each of them.  The collection images are linked to the matching designs in the store, and I want to give a big thank you to Donna, Lana, Jen, Rochelle, Pia, Tanja, and Kabra for the use of their pages!

Remember to head over to my A to Z Challenge, check out the prize, and show me one of your super cute layouts!

Free Weekly Kit by Featured Designer: QueenBrat Digital Designs


We would love to welcome QueenBrat Digital Designs as this week's Featured Designer!

Who are you?
I was born and raised in West Virginia.  I am a retired medical lab tech.  I am Momma to four children that I raised alone after a 12 year marriage.  My oldest son passed away in 2013 from liver failure due to PSC.  My three other children are married with children and I currently live with my youngest son.  My youngest son, his wife, and I have all gone through the training and are registered foster parents.  We are currently adopting a sibling set that we have had for 9 months now.   We plan to keep our home open for other children who may need a home.

What is your favorite season?
My favorite season is now upon us.  I Love Fall!  I love the changing of the leaves, the cool, brisk mornings, and oh my---football!  Plus there are the Halloween goblins and all the yummy food of Thanksgiving.

Who is a very special person in your life?
I have special People in my life--my grandchildren!  They are my heart and what my purpose is.  I now have six:  Riley 12, Remi Jade 6, Nova 6, Kenny 4, Vinny 14 months, and Rowan 3 months.

Tell us about something on your bucket list!
One thing on my bucket list that I have yet to do is go to New York City during Christmas time and visit the Statue of Liberty.

What movie could you quote the best?
I can't really quote movies but my favorite quote from a movie is from God's Not Dead: “Sometimes the devil allows people to live a life free of trouble because he doesn’t want people turning to God. Their sin is like a jail cell, except it is all nice and comfy and there doesn’t seem to be any reason to leave. The door’s wide open. Till one day time runs out and the door slams shut and suddenly it’s too late to get out.” 

To finish off we would love to share some of QueenBrat Digital Designs' favorite layouts:
Layout out from Most of All
Layout out from Happy Birthday Time

Layout out from Fond of Fall
