This week’s reveal focuses on 3 new products released by Scrapdragon Designs – Photo Puzzle Overlays/Frames, Puzzle Overlays, and Puzzle Paper Pack.  From the first day of school to vacations to the love of puzzles themselves, take a look at how the team used these fun puzzle products to capture and record their precious memories.

Hannah’s First Day of High School by Becky Morris
Becky took two different types of puzzles from the Puzzle Paper Pack and the Photo Puzzle Overlays/Frames and combined them here for a striking layout about her daughter’s first day of high school.  Using the maze paper as her background reminds us that her daughter will have to learn to navigate her new school, while the word find frame compliments the design on her daughter’s shirt and draws the reader’s eye into the photo.

First Day by AnikA
This adorable layout uses one of the puzzle overlays as a frame around the page.  AnikA makes great use of the open space and her color choices give this layout a soft feel, allowing her vibrant pictures to stand out.

Last First Day by Becky Morris
Becky used a puzzle paper from the paper pack as well as a puzzle frame on her picture to highlight the theme of this layout: her puzzled question – how did this day get here so soon?

Disney’s Vero Beach Resort by Tania Ruiz
Tania placed the crossword puzzle frame on her picture and embossed it for texture, then used the blocks to frame her date.

A Great Vantage Point by Tania Ruiz
Tania used the line and arrow tools in photoshop to draw a path on this fun maze paper from one picture to the other.

Dyno-Myte! by Carissa Imel
Scrapping about a recent trip to a themed restaurant, Carissa uses various puzzle frames on her pictures and lines them with a border created from one of the puzzle overlays to emphasize the different “action” sequences.  She mats the other photos with cropped pieces from the paper pack.  She brings it all together by adding a page border using one of the puzzle overlays.

Basic Technique by Tania Ruiz
Tania placed a paper on top of the word find paper and erased portions of it to allow the letters to show through. One of the parts she erased gave her the first word in her title, which she emphasized with a drawn box around it.

Itsy Bitsy Spider by Katie Bonasse
Katie uses a colorful puzzle frame on this adorable layout about her son playing with Legos which enhances the action picture shown here as he fits the pieces together.  The soft lines of the puzzle overlay in the background draw the eye into the main photo, where the arrows then bring the focus across the page.

My Daughter by AnikA
AnikA has recolored the puzzle frame used on this soft layout to match the color scheme of her layout and to add to the sweet feel of this picture and page.

Every Day by Lynn Weber
Lynn chose the word find overlay to scrap this fun daily tradition of playing scrabble for lunch.  Her amazing photography stands out against this soft background of letters on the page.

Kakuro by Sara B
Rounding off the reveal this week, Sara chose the perfect picture to go with these puzzle products – the picture of her completing a puzzle!  The block puzzle frame was a brilliant way to highlight this close-up shot.
