"Explore" Layout by DT Kate

We are back on the blog today with more Design Team inspiration!
DT Kate has created this awesome and as always fun layout inspired by our October
to share with you:
"While on vacation, we try to schedule things for both kids to enjoy together but sometimes, with my son being much younger and then also having some special needs, it's impossible. So, while in Florida, while the others went ziplining, he & I headed over to the Children's Museum. It was wonderful and since we got there early, there was hardly no one in there and my son got lots of one on one attention! "
I think I used every color in the color palette; it just so happened that this cute car paper had all the colors in it even if it didn't match the space theme LOL ... I then accented it with lots of yellow paper pieces from the stash. 2 of the tags have hidden journaling.

"I pretty much stayed true to the sketch with my layout. I love the fall colors that we were given to play with, they are beautiful. I was inspired by the blues, green, red, yellow, and aluminium. 
The collection I used, Simple Stories Urban Traveler, came closest to these colors and fit the story I was documenting. 
I look forward to seeing your layouts inspired by this year's fall colors."

"Missy and Sam" Layout by DT Robin

Yay!  It's Thursday!  
Today's ADORABLE feature is being shared by our talented DT Robin, inspired by our
"This was a fun layout for me to do. I, honestly, didn’t think I’d be able to complete it, initially. I had never done a color palette challenge like this one before. It was pretty easy once I noticed there was no pink in the palette. That eliminated a lot of patterned paper right off the top.

The sketch is a lot of fun, too. I obsess over tags. I used my Tim Holtz Large Tag Sizzix die to make my tags. I seem to get a lot of use out of that die!

For close-up pictures of the details, please visit my blog"

"Nine Lives" Layout by DT Nicole

It's Wednesday and we have some wonderful
inspiration to share with you!
Take a look at this fabulous layout DT Nicole created to share with us:
"First of all, let me just say that the Pantone 2014 Fall Colors are all gorgeous. Now the real challenge was to find a collection of papers and/or embellishments to match some of these warm, yet vivid tones. Because I softened up my layout a bit with my usual whitewashing technique, it's as if I have used a little lighter shade of each color chosen, but I assure you... I have tried to stay true to the color palette. The colors I chose are: Cypress, Aurora Red, Misted Yellow, Aluminum and a little touch of Bright Cobalt (in some tiny flowers on the pattern paper). The collection used is DIY Shop by Crate Paper. I absolutely adored working with the sketch - lots of layers to work with and, my favorite, tags! Hopefully you will play along with Sketch challenge #19!"

 Today's stunning inspiration is the beautiful creation of DT Leila, inspired by our
When I am sad or tired, I need the sea to calm down, to restore the energy. Whenever I'm so or whenever I get the chance, run to him, love to feel the sand feet or even just stay seated listening to the sound that the sea does, it calms me, it makes me happy. 

This is my interpretation of the sketch + some of the colors in the palette proposals.
 I hope you enjoy and are inspired to play with us.
