Scrapping from A to Z with Kathryn Estry!

Hi!  I'm Kathryn Estry, a designer here at MyMemories, and I'm back with another episode of 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!

U is for ...

Unusual Use

I'm always amazed at the unusual way my creative team chooses to use papers, elements, and photos.

Liz used Sweet Memories and shows us an unusual way to use journaling.

Here Liz uses tags (made smaller) as laces to connect two papers.  How clever!
Terry Ridge Collection

Terry shows us how a frame (circular lace) can be tucked behind a photo as an embellishment.

Sweet Luv Collection

Yvonne made the next three photos using West Coast, Yvonne Boulevard (a collection I made in her honor), and Zebras in Charge.  She's framed part of the Eiffel Tower and put an effect on the photo in the first one and cut papers into interesting shapes (stars and hexagons) in her other two.


My favorite U collection is Uptown Girl.  It's great for all girly photos, and some lovely pages were made by my creative team ladies.  Enjoy these pages by Rhonda and Liz.

Challenge yourself to use your photos, papers, and elements in unusual ways.  Again, I invite you to visit my forum challenge, Scrapping with Kathryn from A to Z.  :)
