"You Rock" Layout by Designer Alicia Redshaw

Happy Friday!
Today's amazing feature is the creative work of talented
Designer Alicia Redshaw
inspired by the 
Alicia:
"I have had this photograph of Noah from last year’s Book Week waiting for the perfect papers and inspiration - so when the You Rock collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio was released I knew it was the one and then this month’s Tic Tac Toe Stash Challenge sealed the deal with the perfect inspiration. 
I have used the 
colour blue, Polaroid (frames) and hexagons. 

I used lots of layers as always using words and embellishments to express what I wanted to say about my awesome boy.

I have inked the edges of all of the elements and used the Polaroid frames over the photographs to highlight Noah’s face and hands in the traditional Yu-Gi-Oh! pose. The wooden star and arrows have been coated in Enamel Accents to give some shine to the layout and boost the presence of my feature colour – Blue.

Have fun and I hope you enjoy this challenge as much as I did….."

"Selfie with the Genie!" Layout by Designer Sherri Caramico

Hello!
How is your weekend going?   Scrapping and need a little mojo boost?
Check out the super fun layout talented
Designer Sherri Caramico
created inspired by the 
August Tic Tac Toe Challenge


Sherri:
"Hello Scrappy Friends - this month's Tic Tac Toe Challenge has so many AWESOME elements on it - that I decided to go "FULL BOARD" and gave myself an "extra challenge" to include ALL 9 items in the squares - instead of just picking one of the rows of 3!! It was lots of fun trying to find all of the items in my stash and getting them to work together!!
I think this plan worked perfectly for this layout that captures a very happy memory!
We were getting off of a ride in Disneyland when the Genie came walking towards us. I asked him if we could take a selfie together and he was happy to oblige! As you can see in the photo - this made me smile almost as big as the Genie!

I had lots of fun challenging myself on this challenge, but you really only need to pick one row of 3 to play along. 
I hope I've inspired you to play along with us this month - and I can't wait to see what you create!
((HUGS)) Sherri"

"Hi everyone! My name is Taru Jehkonen! 
I´m so excited to be Guest DT on your lovely challenge on August. 

I live in Rauma, Finland with my sons Sami and Niko. I´m retired about 12 years now. I love cats. I have a four sweet cats  and they ventured on my scrapbook page often. 

I saw how my friend made cards on spring 2007.  Inspirited by her  and I began make my own cards with 3D images. But then I found stamps and it was big love right away! Then I found scrapbooking, mixed media and art journal. I love take photos – I was always take a lot of photo on my life.  I love little bit crazy, funny and silly photos! 
On my works I really love bold colors, shapes, layers, stamps, stencil and dimensions. I love use different mediums, but I also love make like “clean and simple”! Just like what mood I have when I crafting.  

Please come and visit me on social media!

GDT Taru created the amazing layout below based on the 
August Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Taru said this about her layout...
"Tic Tack challenge is my favorite challenge because it is so full of opportunities. My line is The Blue color – polaroid – hexagon shape on this month. I really love to made more dimensions on background paper, even it is pattern paper.
I really love playing with inks, paints, stamps, stencils, colors and splatters. Those all really put a more life on background paper. Usually I made a lot of layers with papers behind photo, but today I was inspired to made layers with plastic prints (sheeting). 
I love used flairs and text stickers."

"Back to School" LO by Angela Weisbeck

Happy Friday!

Designer Angela Weisbeck is sharing her wonderful layout today
inspired by the July Sketch Challenge:

Angela said this about her layout:
Hey there! Today I get to show you my take on the sketch with a twist. I love sketches so I figured this would be a slam dunk. However, the twist turned out to be a bit of a challenge for me. The good part is, a challenge generally produces some awesome results and I love the way my layout turned out. For the twist I used: F- foam alphas, I- ink, R- red, E- Elle's Studio, W- wood veneer, O- orange, R- rectangle shaped patterned paper, K- the letter K in my title, & S- stars.
You can check out my blog for details & photos: https://scrappingcompulsion.blogspot.com/2017/07/back-2-school.html
Can't wait to see what awesome layouts you create with this challenge! :)
