MDSM84... Let's go Vintage!

Hi, it's Tami.  For this week's template, I have a fairly simple design leaving it open to a lot of creative enhancements.  My challenge is to incorporate a vintage feel or vintage photo into your page.  This is something I've been wanting to do for a long time.  There are lots of great downloads with grunge or vintage elements, such as Gorgeous Grunge, Downtown Grunge, and Old School.  So, dig out those old photos of your grandparents or even great-grandparents and have fun!


Challenge Guidelines:
  • Please create a new MDS project for the current challenge.
  • Provide a link back to MDS Monday or use the Challenge Graphic above within your post.
  • Link directly to your Post for this challenge, not your entire blog. (So we can find your project)
  • You can create a Card, Scrap Page or 3-D Object with the Sketch.
  • The Challenge will end on Saturday October 4th @ 12pm EST. 
  • Have fun! 
We can't wait to see what you create... Check out our Design Team's projects below for some great Inspiration!

Cindy's Picks for MDSM#83!


I would like to thank everyone for playing with us this week. It is always fun to see everyone's different takes on the sketch and I love seeing all the important moment in our lives shared!



Breelin Renwick - Craft-somnia Momma

I have to say that I fancy this page because of the DISNEY factor! But overall, a great page and a great way to capture a Disney day! Love the details like the crown on the Mickey ears! The AWESOME photos also pop against the white layer. Congrats Bree!



Tanya Harvey ~ Tanya's Stamps & Things

Proud moment for the whole family! I love the grid dsp background. I love the brad confetti look. I love the colors used. Congrats Tanya!

MDSM83


Hello! Cindy here and back with a simple layout for a scrap page or a card with a little learning lesson for you! You need to use the Freeform Tool to create the lines around the photo boxes and then add text to them.

Need help? Go to these videos link to learn how to do it:
Video 1    Video 2
(For a card, use one photo box and text on a path with the title.)

I kept it simple so that you can let your creativity flow on this challenge!

Tara's Picks for MDSM#82

Thank you for all who played along with our white-on-white (or ivory.. or pop of colour!). Such gorgeous pages this week.

Time to check out this week's top picks, as chosen by Tara.




I love Wendie's grunge-y background and the great frame she has around her photo. The circle with the sentiment looks great over the cup rings in the background. Lovely, soft page!






Tanya's page with all the pink accents makes me so happy! I love the recoloured burlap and the little flower in the centre. Great sister page!


Be sure to check back tomorrow for a brand new challenge!

MDSM82 Tara's keeping it clean!


Hello all, and welcome to a new week at MDS Monday! Tara here hosting this week, and I've kept the sketch quite simple... but there's a catch if you're up for it - I'd love to see white/vanilla/ivory as your main colours, but a 'pop' or two of 1 other colour.  Sometimes it's hard to see a white embellishment on a white background, but you can add a little drop shadow or border to make it stand out a bit.

Can't wait to see what you come up with!



Challenge Guidelines:
  • Please create a new MDS project for the current challenge.
  • Provide a link back to MDS Monday or use the Challenge Graphic above within your post.
  • Link directly to your Post for this challenge, not your entire blog. (So we can find your project)
  • You can create a Card, Scrap Page or 3-D Object with the Sketch.
  • The Challenge will end on Saturday Sept. 20th @ 12pm EST. 
  • Have fun!

Beth's Top Picks for MDSM#81!



I would like to thank everyone for playing with us this week. It is always fun to see everyone's different takes on the sketch and I love seeing all the papers and colors people choose! 



Tanya Harvey ~ Tanya's Stamps & Things

I really liked Tanya's page celebrating some quality time with her sweetie.  The colors are soft and pretty and let the photos show of those happy smiles. 



Sharon Maranich ~ Sharon's Inkie Fingers

Sharon created some really fun subway art for her background to really show her love of the game!
