Scrapbook Saturday (Carnival Kids Page 2)

It's time for another Scrapbook Saturday share, and today we have the beautiful second page of designer Melissa Craig's "carnival" layout! Melissa layered this fun photo of all three of her children on to digital papers from the "Carnival Kids" digi set. The pre-colored ferris wheel image, along with some fun digital buttons, make the perfect accents for the image and her ever-important journaling.

Now you have to see both pages of this layout side-by-side to get the full effect, so here they are. Everything about this layout captures the spirit of the fun of a carnival day!

Have we made you want to dig out your own photos and get them scrapped yet? Give us time! ;-) We'll have another edition of Scrapbook Saturday in two weeks, and hope you'll join us then.

Your Smile is My Umbrella

We all have those special people in our lives whose smiles can shelter us from even the roughest of storms. For me, it's my husband, my children, and my siblings. Who is it for you? Here is a sweet card that designer Kren Kurts made to celebrate on of those special people in her life. She used one of the precolored images and a greeting from the "Rainy Day" set. Everything about this card, from the pretty Spring colors to the crisp textures, evokes that feeling of the world after a long rainstorm -- fresh and new. So beautiful, and just the way those special smiles make us feel! :-)

Are We There Yet?

I've said it before, and I'll keep on saying it -- one of the most wonderful things about digis is how versatile they are in terms of how you can use them. Today designer Rhonda Miller shows us again that they aren't just for cards. Rhonda printed elements from the "Are We There Yet" set and used them along with some sweet stickers and a variety of other elements to create this wonderful page in her smash book. For those not familiar with a smash book, it is a kind of art journal. Some come with preprinted pages, such as the one Rhonda used today. Doesn't that map paper make the perfect backdrop for her travel-themed creation? Rhonda crafts often with her smash books, and I look forward to seeing what she comes up with next! :-)

Happy Anniversary

How about a lovely "Happy Anniversary" card for your enjoyment this fine Tuesday morning? This was made by designer Donna Hanley, using the "Stitched With Love" set. Textures always draw my eye, and Donna used such wonderful ones on this! The dry embossing on the image panel in particular looks so much like Aida cloth, and is a perfect fit with the stitchy theme of the image. So pretty, and a wonderful way to wish someone lots of love on their anniversary! :-)

Challenge Inspiration Week 3

Happy Monday! Did you have a good weekend? For the first time in over a month, my whole family was "well," so we enjoyed spending some time together outside of the house for a change. We were unfortunate to catch a nasty flu right before Christmas, and so we kept ourselves cloistered the last month to avoid spreading it. It's amazing how rejuvenating it can be just to be able to go out and do normal things!

Speaking of doing normal things, it's time for our weekly dose of inspiration for our January "Digi of the Month" Challenge players. This beautiful card was made by one of our new Design Team members, "KT Fit Kitty." She really brought this bunny to life with her fabulous coloring, and all of the sparkly elements she used add to the cheeriness of the card, don't you think?

There are about two weeks left to play along with this month's challenge, and the team and I look forward to seeing what you make! If you don't have it already, you can get this month's challenge set -- "Sending My Love" -- in our shop for just $1.25 or free with your $10 purchase of Deedee's Digis products. Please note that you must enter the code "DDOM-10", minus quotes, in the "Comment" field at checkout to receive this digi free with your $10 order.
