Meet our 
May Guest Designer
Jinny Newlin
"My family and I live in a small suburb of Kansas City, Kansas, just over an hour and a half north of where I grew up. I am a former kindergarten teacher turned adoring wife to BJ and stay-at-home, homeschool mom to Ezekiel (11), Adina (6), and Kaden (1). When I’m not taking care of or playing with my family, you can find me cooking, baking, gardening, camping, sewing, taking pictures, blogging at Soaring, and of course, paper crafting. My love for the latter started, over thirteen years ago, at a Stampin’ Up workshop; but I have been creating with any and every form of crafting media, that I could get my hands on, since I was old enough to hold a crayon. I’ve been honored to have had a number of published works of art, as well as to get to design for some of my most favorite manufacturers and challenge blogs, which currently includeStuck?! Sketches and The Studio, and am just thrilled to be guest designing with the talented ladies at Scrap Our Stash. I hope that I can inspire you all to get creating!"

Check out this adorable layout Jinny created inspired by our April Stash Challenge
Here is what Jinny shared about the challenge and her reveal:
"I just love the freedom that comes with the challenges at Scrap Our Stash! I like to load my pages with lots of layers and details, so I always find picking an item for each letter of the chosen word, while challenging, super fun! Inspiration for my page came from that gorgeous, Dear Lizzy, moon phases, patterned paper, which came in my Noel Mignon Hello Darling Classic Kit this month, and I knew would pair perfectly with these photos of my baby bear. He was just three-days-old in the pics and all snug and toasty warm after his bath on his first morning at home. Further inspiration came from a fun, Washi Tape stamp set, as well as lots of tags, Polaroids, and veneer bits, that I just received in a scrumptious box from Elle’s Studio.

My “EMBOSS” list…

E = eyelets

M = moons

B = buttons, bow, baby, & a tiny green balloon

O = orange

S = silver, stripes, stenciling, & stamping

S = stickers, stars, string, & Silhouette"

Thank you so much Jinny for agreeing to be our May guest Designer and providing us with such gorgeous inspiration!
We are thrilled and appreciate you being here!

Okay SOS fans, as always, we have provided you with a challenge, awesome inspiration and a fabulous prize...it is now your turn to"show us what you working with!"

Thank you for stopping by and make sure you return tomorrow for more

"Cherish My Family" Layout by Rochelle

Hello!
Today's April Sketch Challenge inspiration is this beautiful layout by Rochelle:
Rochelle:
"Although this photo didn't come out good, it is very special to me. This photo was taken on Thanksgiving with my husband and children, at my ex-husband's house, with our children we have together and his family. It is so wonderful for a blended family to come together and have such a great time. I know it's hard for most to understand the dynamics of a how blended families work, but this photo represents that with much love, dedication and support, it works and it works wonderfully! We are truly a blessed family and I cherish them dearly! :)

For the challenge, I pretty much stayed true to the sketch and for the photo inspiration, I was inspired by the flowers and by the dots on the page.:

Just a reminder, you have until April 29th, 11:59 PM (PST) to complete one or both of our April challenges for a chance to win our April prize generously donated by our awesome sponsor:

"Cancun, Mexico" Layout by DT Tracy

Hello and thank you for stopping by!
Today's lovely inspiration is being shared by DT Tracy:
Tracy:
"The first thing that inspired me most about the inspirational photo was the color palette. I just love happy, bright colors! And I instantly knew which photo I was going to scrap too! 

I dug into my older paper collections and Sketchbook by Amy Tangerine was the perfect choice. I gathered up some bits and pieces of the papers and did some fussy cutting as well. I also included a bright yellow flower doilie that was perfect for the colors too, along with some homemade yoyo flowers that I've had stored in a jar for years. 

I'm really enjoying myself being on the SOS DT because it's giving me the incentive to actually dig through my older, stashed product and use it up!"

Inspired by Tracy's layout?
Here is a look at the sketch and photo inspiration that inspired Tracy's layout:
