"Joy" Layout by Designer Michelle Henderson

Hello and thank you for stopping by!
Today SOS Designer Michelle, is sharing the amazing layout she created
inspired by the
"Happy December everyone!
This was such a fun page to do - and I love stripes, and have either enamel dots or sequins on nearly every page so that wasn't a problem lol.
I thought the gold paper background looked like a frame so I took it one step further and added wire to make it look like it was hanging.
I hope you can take some inspiration from this for the challenge, and you can always 
visit my blog at for more details."

"Yes Please" Layout by DT Zsoka Marlo

Today's fabulous feature is the creative work of talented SOS Designer Zsoka
inspired by the 
"Hey there scrappy friends, Zsoka with you today with my layout for the book cover inspired challenge. I guess you can't really tell it was inspired by the book cover because it is not exactly a Xmas layout :D. The additional requirement was that we use striped paper and enamel dots or sequins. I focused on these more. I had Amy Tan's Oh Happy Life collection on my desk so I just went with it! This yellow-white striped paper is my most favourite in the whole collection, just so summery and happy! I created this cut file from a single heart and backed it with different patterned papers from the same collection. I added some stickers and enamel dots for embellishments plus I used some AH-MAZING wood veneer sequins I got from my friend, Eri. I tried to find these but they seem to be discontinued :(. I did some machine stitching at the bottom and that is pretty much it!

I hope you like how it turned out! Thanks for stopping by X Zsoka"

"Christmas Memories" Layout by Sherri Caramico

Good morning crafty friends!
Welcome to another day of awesome
Today's featured layout is the wonderful creative work of SOS Designer Sherri:
"Oh my goodness! How did it get to be December already!! I don't know about you, but I think that 2016 has flown by! Let me take a minute to wish you and your families a very Happy and Healthy Holiday Season, filled with Love, Laughter, and Wonderful Memories!

Speaking of memories, I used the "Christmas theme" and Red and Green colors from this month's SCRAP OUR STASH Book Inspired Challenge, to create my DT Layout, that captures a special Christmas memory!

Believe it or not, I really didn't have many Christmas papers in my stash, but I am happy to say, what I did have worked out well for this challenge. I used striped paper and enamel dots, for the added challenge items.

This is a photo of my wonderful Mom and Dad on Christmas morning, 2008. I can't believe this was 8 years ago already! I love the vintage look of these papers!

Again, I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season! I hope you get some YOU time this month and can play along with us!

"Jewel Thief" Layout by DT Cassie Wiscarson

Hi everyone!
Today we are showcasing a super adorable layout created by SOS Designer Cassie,
inspired by our

"This book cover had me scratching my head on what to create. It seemed obvious to make a Christmas page, but last year I decided I wanted to be an active participant and not just behind the camera. The result of that is that I have almost no Christmas pictures and the ones I did take have already been scrapped. I decided to take my inspiration from the title and more importantly the word STOLE. So that is what inspired to create this page of my niece wearing ALL of the dress-up jewelry while visiting her grandparents. I took a 6x6 pad and cut several pages in half so that I had 8 triangles. I then laid them out so that the picture would be in the middle. I used striped paper and then used sequins to create a rough circle around my photo and title."

Here is the challenge that inspired Cassie"s page:

"Got Gifts" Layout by DT Steffanie Seiler

Happy Friday!
It's the most wonderful time of the year and today we are sharing a layout
with a little bit of adorable holiday cheer
created by SOS Designer Steffanie
inspired by the
December Book Inspired Stash Challenge:
"I went along with the Christmas theme and found this little treasure among my photos from last year. I think what drew me to this one was the stripes---since the challenge also called for stripes! I chose this light blue cardstock to play off the blue stripe in the photo and also to be a little non-traditional. It helped that I had this Echo Park Christmas collection in my stash that had a bit of blue in the stripe print. Sequins added the perfect little amount of sparkle to my page and fulfilled the other part of the challenge."

Inspired by Steffanie's wonderful layout?
