Carrie here! Have you enjoyed Digital Scrapbooking Day as much as I have? It’s been cold and blustery here on the Eastern Shore, which made for perfect shopping, gallery browsing and cropping online weather. I’ve settled in for the night with a scary post-Halloween movie and some candy. A perfect end to an amazing day. A big thank you to our digi community for providing us with such a great celebration of our craft! Down to business: Let’s look at some standouts:

The paper just makes that photo pop! The alignments are perfect- notice how the title points right to the eye? Excellent move. I also love how she’s used the arrows to add in more photos. It’s so clever! Also, the little bits and elements add the perfect amount of polish to the page.

Is it that time yet? If it means layouts like this, BRING IT! What a great use of white space. Love the the loose, dreamy feel of the page… and I love the shadowing. She’s definitely captured the magic of Christmas. Check out the way the scatter follows the line of the two Christmas ornaments in the photo’s background. Well done!

Here, the design is simple, the embellishing minimal, yet the page is incredibly powerful. The page has strong symmetry in color and shape, except for the tilted border at the top of the page. That border also has those green dots that shakes up the pink and black palette. This is such a wonderfully executed design!

What a GREAT photo! Love that glass.  It’s the first thing you notice on the page, despite all those pattern papers. The splatter and scatter point your eye in the right direction… and the tape is like an exclamation point. Everything pops of the kraft background… it’s such a fun layout!

Having the B&W photos and cards stacked this way is really quite amazing. Put against that navy paper and with the one wood title bit? Perfection!!  There are so many little touches that make this stellar, like having the title repeated throughout the page. Really, the glitter at the bottom right just seals the deal for me. Because GLITTER!

Such beautiful colors and clusters! Such softness and yet, what wonderful strength with that grid design. I love how she’s layered paper and scatter between the photo stack. I also love the star paper peaking out from the torn edge… it just adds that little something extra. Gorgeous!



My post is done and movie over. I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their DSD weekend!! Happy Scrapping!!

  1. Thank you ever so much!
    I lost my scrapping mojo four years ago. It was so bad that I couldn’t even open up Paint Shop Pro. With you picking my page as GSO shows me that I still got it in me and hopefully my mojo is back again.

    1. Oh, I’m so glad I could help with the mojo! Yes!! You definitely are not mojo-less. Such wonderful work… and welcome back. I can’t wait to see more pages.

    1. Susanne, I just love that I get to make wonderful scrappers like you happy!! You are most welcome, but the pleasure is all mine cause I get to look at all the pretties!!
