"Things" LO by DT Sherri

Hello Everyone!

Check out this awesome layout from Designer Sherri:
Sherri shared this about her layout:
"I've had theses papers in my stash for some time....waiting for just the right photo(s) and layout. I love the tag in this sketch - as tags are my favorite way to include a little bit of journaling in my layouts. For the +3 part of the challenge, I used:
1. Desert - base page
2. Envelop - that I actually made out of one of the papers
3. French Wine - in the pattern paper and embellies

We had a spur of the moment "Family Game Night" with my brothers-in-laws and sister-in-laws. We played one of our favorite games "Things!" We had lots of fun laughing together!

I Love this photo of us!! Yes, it is a selfie - and I had to angle it like that to fit us all in! Don't wait for a special occasion to spend time with those you love - get together and laugh and have fun whenever you can. Life is too short and you never know what tomorrow might bring!

Hoping you will play along with us this month - I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!"

"Happy" LO by Designer Natsuko

Hello and Happy Monday!

Let's start the week off with this fabulous layout from Designer Natsuko!
Here's what Natsuko said about her layout:
"LIST1 - Diecut, LIST2 - Envelope, LIST3 - Flowers
Since 'flowers' is one of the choices I made, I decided to use pictures of my daughter in a cosmos field. I wanted to make this layout elegant and dreamy, so I cut out flowers, butterflies and other sweet parts from the paper and popped some up. I also wrote a journal on a tag and put it inside the envelope. You can see more details here;
I can't wait to see everyone else's layouts!! xxx"

"A Strong Defense" LO by DT Steffanie Seiler

Hello and Good Morning!

Today we are sharing this awesome layout from our Designer Steffanie:
Stephanie said this about her layout:
"I'll admit, I rarely ever think about angling papers on a layout while I'm creating. This sketch has a large angled strip in the background and I considered not including it, but I'm so glad I did. I'm finding myself saying...wow. What an impact that makes. This layout would definitely not have the same feel without it. I loved this sketch and actually used a 6x6 pad for the whole thing, piecing them together to appear like longer strips. Since the patterns were pretty small and busy, it worked. Now I want to try it again with regular sized paper!

My stash items are as follows:
List 1 - Doodlebug Designs
List 2 - Elle's Studio (journal tabs)
List 3 - Fiskars (border punch"

Here's the sketch challenge that inspired Steffanie:

inspired by the
"Hi there SOS friends. Rachelle here today sharing my challenge design take. I was so inspired by this awesome book cover colors. I applied a clock and and key shown on the cover as well. For this layout I went with a mixed media background, layers of patterned paper, and a simple floral cluster. This challenge requires string and thread which was easily applied. I really liked the picture of my nurse that cares for me each day. I hope you have been inspired to get started on your layout to enter this challenge. You will be so glad you did.
