My Pocket Pages

I categorize my photos from my Iphone and photos from my DSLR differently. Even though with every new incarnation of the Iphone, its camera slowly creeps up in quality. Most of the time I carry my camera when I know there will be lots of opportunities for photos and my camera phone captures some of the cute day to day moments that I might not have my big camera in arms reach to take. Slowly I have documented the camera pics from the birth of my first son and now I am working on October of 2015. I took too many pictures on my phone last October but I had a brand new baby so it will be 16 pages just of my camera pics!

Blind Lift Challenge

One of our Members AnikA has posted a challenge! Looks like a lot of fun!

Blind Lift Challenge:
I´m very curious how everybody interpret the following instructions.
So here is the challenge:
I picked a page from the galery which you should lift.  But I won´t show you the page, but will give you the instruction where to place the elements, which elements and so on.
With my instructions please create your page. It could me more fun because of my english. Please create as you understand the instructions. There is no wrong or right.
At the end I will show the layout which I picked.

Ready ?
This challenge runs until the end of January .
1. Use a paper as background. The paper has lots of hearts on the right side and a flower on the left site on the top.
2. Use one photo
3. place this photo centrally in the upper half of the layout
4. place 5 paper stripes / paper squares and 2 round papers
under this photo.
5. place under all this a paper stripe vertical on the whole      page whide as the photo.
6. On the top of the photo at the bottom is a heart and a flower in the left corner and a wordart in the right corner. There is an arrow which shows from the heart to the wordart.  And on the top in the right corner are 4 small vertical hearts.
7. on the top of the vertical paper stripeslightly offset to the right are 8 flowers (or other elements if you want) and a bee and on the bottom slightly offset to the left of the vertical paper stripe are also 8 flowers and a mouse.
8. At the bottom on the top of the vertical paper stripe but under the flowers is a tiny paper stripe, same whide as the vertical paper stripe.

I think this is all. I´m really curious what you will create now.
As I mentioned there is no wrong or right, just having fun.

GSO January 22nd 2014

Happy Thursday! I hope everyone has had a great week! There have been so many awesome layouts in the gallery, I had to show off a few of them!

I love this layout by Ann. I love the photo blend and the gorgeous cluster on the left corner!

I love the photo mask and amazing side cluster Anita used on this layout!

I am a huge cat person and this layout by AnnePC. I love the paper and the photo blending. I love the full page photo of this stunning cat.

This layout by Carola is touching. I love the letter to her mother, the blended photo and the cluster!

I love the mixing of word art and journaling on this page from JustTrace. I also love the large photo and the distressing she added.

Site Feature: Photo Journals

How to use the Photo Journals Feature

Anyone registered can post a photo journal. If there is a page you absolutely love, post it here along with your inspiration, why you chose the kit, what the photo meant, if you tried new techniques, etc. You can post inspiration for others, or ask for advice if you are stuck.
If you have a tutorial you have written, please share it here! If you have participated in a photo a day, showcase your layout, show the list you followed if you did.

you are welcome to put a link in to the kit you chose, but remember this is more for inspiration and showcasing your talents.

Today has been dreary day. It’s cold and rainy so the only option was to stay in doors. Lack of sleep the night before did not add anything to my mood. I need sunshine, hence why I am so eager to get back to Florida. So I scrapped about my desire to get back home to the state I love. I have done two layouts recently about my desire to be back home. I can only share one right now as one I scrapped with an awesome template pack coming out Friday.

My Inspiration for this page mainly came from the word art. I searched for a png of the state of Florida and then clipped a paper to it. I then used an element to pin point my home on the map. I also used an edge treatment on the page to give it more of a grungy feel. I used Created by Jill’s This is Where I Belong and Mismatched Edges 1.
Scrapping about my home made me feel better. Scrap Therapy and a glass of wine are great ways to deal with life =)

See you next week in the New Release Round Up!


Welcome! In May of 2013, I had not scrapbooked in over a year. I had a busy 11 month old crawling all over the place and getting into everything. I didn’t feel like hauling out all of my paper supplies during his nap time to scrap only to clean them all up when he woke up an hour later. I then took the plunge and accepted Digital Scrapbooking as my new creative outlet. All of the fun and less of a mess for a crawler to get into!

Within a month of re-discovering the wonders of digital scrapping, I was hooked! I was making pages and pages a day and getting active in the community. I joined several creative teams and embraced the open gallery. Now almost two years later, the number of open galleries has diminished. And to tell the truth, I never really felt that welcome like I did at an individual store forum. So this is an effort to change that. This Digi Scrapping corner is open to all lovers of digital scrapbooking! A place to showcase our layouts and to talk about our passion of memory keeping whether we are traditional, project life, art journal, hybrid, whatever! This community is for you!

Several features I love about this forum and gallery are unique. Scrap Stacks is the scrappers pinterest and I would love for this to become the scrappers Facebook. You will find a newsfeed, a gallery posting system much like the social network and ease uploading and sharing!

This blog will showcase, awesome layouts, new releases, happenings in the scrap community and whatever you would like to see! This will be a community run by avid scrappers who want to share their love of the hobby and creations.

Thank you for looking! I hope to see you around!
