Layout by DT Sherri Caramico

Happy Friday!
What better way to end your week than with some amazing inspiration!
Today's featured layout is the creative work of SOS Designer Sherri
inspired by our
"I decided to use the shrubs or foliage at the bottom of the book-cover, and the starburst effect behind antlers as my inspiration, as they reminded me of a photo / selfie that I took while on vacation this last October, at Beaches in Turks and Caicos! 

I have to admit, while I love Dr. Seuss, and have ready many of his books to my (now grown up) sons, I have never read this one. Looking at the picture, I could have chosen the White, Blue, Black, Red color scheme, or a photo of a Moose! or maybe a big banner, or antlers, or a hat, or even just something related to hearts ("Big-Hearted Moose").... really, so many possibilities! - I hope your mind is running in a bunch of directions right now, as to how you are going to interpret it, and that you will play along with us! "
Visit Sherri's Blog for more details on her layout.

Here is the challenge that inspired Sherri's fun and colorful page:

"Full of Wonder" Layout by DT Steffanie Seiler

Good morning friends of SOS!
Today's adorable feature is the wonderful creative work of SOS Designer, Steffanie,
inspired by our
February Book Inspired Stash Challenge:
...And this is what Steffanie share with us about the challenge and her layout:
"Hey there. 
I have a page showcasing some cute baby photos for you today. These were taken on our first trip to the beach with Andrew. He was just eight months old and taking in EVERYTHING!!

I was mostly inspired by the title. I was looking at these photos (which are quite old, by the way) and I was thinking about how Andrew just looks so absorbed by everything around him. This led me to think of how a baby's mind is big and empty when they are born and how they quickly and eagerly take in all that surrounds them, creating their life story. Kind of a crazy round about way to get from big-hearted to a big mind full of wonder...but sometimes that's how inspiration works! The red and blue from the cover are obviously represented. Later I was looking at the book cover again and saw those big innocent eyes on the moose...much like Andrew's in the smaller photo!"

The challenge that inspired this awesome page:

Laura Whitaker

"Hello! I am so excited to be back as a guest designer here at Scrap Our Stash, it is always such an honour to be invited. Let me tell you a bit about myself,

I live in Ontario, Canada in a tiny lakeside community with my husband. We have three sons, two of which are grown and live on their own and one that is at home with us. My passion for scrapbooking and papercrafting began about fifteen years ago and is still going strong! Through scrapbooking, I feel I can accomplish two things; a family memory album (or many) and an outlet for my creative side. I love that this is such a social hobby and feel blessed to have made many friends through scrapbooking. I love layers of patterned papers, embellishments of any type, creating sketches and playing with my Silhouette software designing my own cut files, I usually offer a couple of freebies on my blog each month.

I also run my own challenge site called Stuck?! Sketches, and am fortunate to be on the DT of an online and mobile store called ScrapMuch?. I have also recently joined the 2016 Design Teams for both Imaginisce and Simple Stories which is this scrappers dream come true! I would love for you to visit my blog, grab a free cut file or all of them, and maybe play along with some of my sketches!"

Thank you Laura for designing with us again, as always we are excited to work with you
and we love and appreciate the awesome inspiration you share with us!

Take a look at Laura's fabulous interpretation of this month's stash challenge.   Don't you just love her page design, vibrant colors and the super cute photos?

"1st Bath"
And this is what Laura shared with us about her page:
"I found inspiration from the colours in the book cover; as well as the animal (moose) inspired me to scrapbook about an animal. I printed out three photos of our dog, from a few years back when he was a pup - they are just perfect!"

Inspired by Laura's page and/or our challenge? 
 We would love to see what you create based on this challenge!

Thank you for stopping by and return tomorrow for more awesome inspiration from a member of our Design Team, inspired by our February Stash Challenge!
