Tuesdays Tips!!

What to do when you've lost your mojo??

Have you ever had some amazing photos that needed scrapped, but you really didnt have any idea what to do with them? Or just tired of doing the same old styles that you always do? Well one way to get past that would be looking to other scrappers for influence. There are so many different techniques for digital scrapbooking, there is no real reason to stick with just one style (unless that is what you prefer). If you want to broaden your horizons a bit or just step outside of the box and try something new you could try a scraplift.

Find a LO in a gallery that you just love and want to try. Now you don't really want to duplicate the LO exactly, thats not very original. You would want to just look at the LO and notice the postion of papers and photos and elements. Create something similar to the look of the LO you are scraplifting. If their LO has the photos in the left corner you could switch it up and put yours on the right.
Here is an example from the DSM gallery:
the original

the lifted one

There is also a list of some scrapbooking books HERE at this website that could be very helpful in learning new styles and techniques.

The ideas are endless and you should never give up just because you can't figure something out yourself! Good Luck in your Scrapping!!!

Good morning all.... and to some, good afternoon! I'm looking at my calendar, Christmas is now 12 shopping days away and I still haven't even started! Today is the day! I finally have a free day, no work, no driving kids anywhere and the housework can wait. Only it's -42 without the windchill..... so guess what.... I'm staying home and staying cozy!!
I drove into town last night to pick my daughter up from her Christmas party... not sure how cold it was, it was cold enough that I couldn't even feel it and the tires on my car were frozen square!! Bumpity... bumpity.... bumpity...
all the way to town.... So I hope everyone is fine with money this year:) I'll even fold the bills into interesting origami shapes;)
A Sunday isn't a bad day to put my feet up, grab a cup of coffee and browse through the DSM gallery.... here are a couple of standouts I found from this past week...
Here is a simple yet beautiful LO... sometimes less is more....

I love this next LO... but I'm a collector of vintage photos... I love all the little touches especially the bead scatter. Nicely done!

The following is a beautiful winter LO paired with a non winter picture and using a pretty color combo... and it all works!

I'm a fan of Steph's work. I seem to choose at least one of her LO's every week. She seems to have endless ideas... and lately she's been creating two pagers.... makes for a nice flow when you put together an album.

It's that time of year again!! Are yo done your shopping yet?? I haven't even started! I can't seem to find enough time to drive the hour and a half to the city without my kids. That's the tricky part .... if I go shopping they always want to come, they have their own Christmas shopping to do so we have to work in every ones needs. If I would have been on the ball, I could have bought everything on the net... but I never think of it till it's too late... maybe next year! Do any of you buy your presents on-line?
I love my Sunday mornings... here I am drinking coffee and snooping through our gallery... here's a few neat LO's I found...
First up is Athena. I love her kits choice here and she has a real talent for layering!
And while were at it, here's another from Athena... this would make a great Christmas card!
Next is Twimomma2 She had a set of Christmas photos taken... and they are all beautiful. It's tricky getting a great photo of both kids... but she has quite a few... she must have good kids!

The next two Lo's are by mom2twoangels... she used my Flip Flop kit for both LO's. They are similar LO's but changing the bits sure gave them each their own style! And again she had just the right photos!!
Check out Flip Flop here.

Next up is our own Ashlee. I love the present LO it's even finished off with a great bow in the center!! She used Christmas Traditions Coming Soon to DSM by Designs by Ashlee.
Can't wait, this should be a great kit!!

And here's one from me.... I used my new kit Powder Fresh.... you can't buy this kit anywhere. I've been giving it away in chunks since the beginning of Dec... at DSM.

Here's another from Ashlee... I love the photo cluster!!! Very creative!! She used her kit Wild Cherry... you can find it here.

Here's one from Blessedby3qtz... This is a pretty Lo for a pretty girl!! I love the blend!! She used Scrap Manics Chill Out kit.... found here.
And our final LO is by Simply Susan... I love the colors and a wonderful moment captured!!

Well time for a new coffee... and I have the rest of the day to scrap my little heart out seeing as we are kinda snowed in... I LOVE being snowed in!! See you all next week!! Wonderful work ladies!!
