Happy Hump Day! :) 

Today, Designer Michelle M. is sharing her lovely layout
inspired by this month's sketch challenge:


Michelle said this about her layout:

"Hey everyone. Here's my take on this month's sketch/word challenge. I didn't include everything in the sketch but I guess that's the whole point of a sketch. To draw inspiration from the parts that appeal to you. For the word part of the challenge I used the following:

F : flair button
L : lined paper (background)
O : orange
W : watercolours (distress ink used on the background)
E : ephemera
R : Ranger ( dylusions ink spray)
Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing what you create!!"

"Fresh Air" LO by DT June Swart

Good Morning,

We are starting off the week with this wonderful layout by Designer June
inspired by this month's Sketch Challenge:
June said this about her layout:
"Hi, June here today!
With so many wonderful pictures from our trip to the Arboretum, Scrap Our Stash's multi-photo sketch was a perfect fit for this layout. I recently purchased Altenew's scrapbooking kit and, as it is the prize this month for one very lucky Scrap Our Stash participant, I thought it would be fun to use it for this challenge. Most of the papers and embellishments on this page come from the Altenew kit. But, in SOS style, I did add some older elements from my stash. The additions include Thickers, homemade enamel dots, gold ribbon, a Hambly overlay frame, and lots of machine stitching.
For the word challenge I used:
F - flowers, flair, frame
L - lined paper, layers
O - overlay
W - woodgrain letters, word stickers
E - enamel dots
R - red, ribbon
Thanks for stopping by, and join in the challenge for your chance to win this awesome Altenew scrapbooking kit.
-June"

 Sherri shares this about her layout:
"This layout is a memory of a "Fun Trip" we took to Myrtle Beach, SC with my hubby, son, and parents, the week between Christmas and New Years, at the end of 2015. 
It was the first time my youngest son was old enough to join the adults having a glass of wine!

I cut all of the leaves out with my circuit, then inked them with Ranger Distress Ink. I curled them with my finger and popped them with 3D dots. I love how they came out!

I think this sketch worked perfectly for my square Instagram photos! I used the following "stuff" from my stash, for the FLOWER challenge:
F - Fibers, Flash Cards paper, Fired Brick Stain
L - Lined paper, Live.Love.Laugh paper, leaves
O - Ochre (color,) Oasis Stickers ( title )
W - Washi Tape, Wooden Hearts, We R Memory Keepers - Gold Sequins, White Wine paper, Wine Cork paper, Wine and Friends paper, Wine bottle, Wine glass, Wine canvas embellishment
E- Eyelet, Epiphany Crafts Punch and Enamel shape
R - Ranger Distress Stains, Ranger Distressed Inks, Reminisce -The Winery paper collection

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope the sketch and my layout inspire you to play along!

Hello & Happy Easter!


Today we are sharing this fun layout created by Designer Steffanie Seiler
 inspired by this month's Sketch Challenge:
Stephanie shares this about her layout:
"The grid design of this sketch really appealed to me. I had a lot of patterns going on here, especially since I used some patterned washi also. Because of this, I eliminated a couple of the additional patterned paper pieces. I swapped the position of top two blocks to keep my subject looking inward. Other than that, the sketch is intact. My stash items go like this:
F - fish (puffy stickers)
L - liquid pearls (Nuvo Drops), layering, letters
O - orange
W - washi tape, white
E - enamel dots,eyelet, Echo Park
R - red, Ranger ink (for edging) 
Now it's your turn! Have fun!"

Hello!
Today's featured layout is the awesome creative work of
SOS Designer June
inspired by the
April Tic Tac Toe Challenge
June:
"Hi, June here today! Height is a big deal, especially for guys. Big brother Tyler has been teasing Aaron about being shorter most of his life. But, if growth charts are an indicator, Aaron is likely to turn the tables real soon.

I like the new trend of using large letters from different pattern papers for the title. So I gave it a try and am very happy with the results.

I love these tic-tac-toe challenges as they always help me kick my pages up to a higher level.
 I used the first column: 
Border Punch-Stitching-Yellow.
