ScraptoberFEST DT Reveals

Have you started on your ScraptoberFEST layout?
Our Design Team has created some fabulous layouts combining all 4 challenges! 
Before we share those lovely layouts, here's a friendly reminder of the challenges:

And now for some Designer Inspiration!

Designer Becky:
Love This Journey
"Before my focus turned to designing for teams, I used to enjoying creating layouts combining as many challenges as possible. I was looking forward to this Scraptober Fest Challenge and it came together quickly. I changed the sketch to use one photo instead of two, I regularly use washi tape, and the palette has some of my favorite colors. That made it even easier! Happy scrapping!"

Designer Cassie:
Sparkle with Beautiful Friendship 
"It was so fun and interesting to combine all four of the Scraptober Fest challenges on a single layout. I changed up the sketch by just using a single 5x7 photo. I loved having the chance to scrapbook a page about my friendship with a fellow scrapper. The color combo was perfect for this photo of the two of us hanging out together while we scrapped. Luckily I use a lot of these colors, so I was able to dig into my scraps to pull this page together. I had no issue finding matching washi tape since I am quite the washi collector and I kept it to two because I had so many different patterns already."

Designer Kate:
Best Day Ever
"This was our 3rd to trip to Disneyworld and we were dancing because we were picked to be Miss Piggy's special Parade Ambassadors! The whole day was magical and we (along with my sister and bff) were the VIPs of the parade and we got to ride in Miss Piggy's luxury car throughout the whole park! It was a dream come true and truly unexpected!

Designer Sherri:
Life is a Fabulous Adventure With You
"I decided to go with all 4 Challenges combined into one layout!! I used lots of Glimmer and Glitter and got a little messy too!  When I saw the color palette - I knew that I had to use the NEW Simple Stories "SO FANCY" Collection again - the colors are "SPOT ON!"
I had so much fun making this layout! - Almost as much "FUN" as my Hubby and I had when we went to a convention in Atlantic City, back in 2013. Let me just say - it was a night to remember (what we can remember of it that is!!) That's us in those photos, and what a "FABULOUS Adventure" it was! 
I hope you will play along with these 4 FABULOUS Blog Challenges, and can't wait to see what you will create!! Happy ScraptoberFEST everyone!!

"Hoops" LO by DT Cassie

Hello Everyone!!

Today, Designer Cassie is inspiring us with her awesome layout:
Here's what she said about her layout:

"It is time for another word challenge! I have been sitting on these basketball photos for a year now and figured it was finally time to scrap them. The colors threw me for a bit of a loop and I wasn’t sure how I was going to create a girly layout about a sport with masculine colors. Luckily, it seemed to come together. For the letters, I not only inked the edges of all of my paper (something I love to do), but I also used ink to stamp the little hearts all over the page. I included my daughter’s uniform number by her picture. I added a piece of kraft cardstock to balance out all of the bright colors and patterns. I then used various stickers across my page and of course that cute heart stamp.
Title: Hoops 
I - Ink
N- Numbers
K- Kraft
S- Stickers, Studio Calico, Snarky Stamps"

"Our Graduate" LO by DT Patricia

Hello Scrappers! 

Today, we have a fabulous layout from DT Patricia to inspire us. Take a look:
Here's what Patricia said about her layout:
The challenge this month was to use stash items consisting of the word: "I-N-K-S". I chose to use the following:

I - Inked Edges 
N - Numbers
K - Key
S - Stickers

I have had this Dog Kit from Me and My Big Ideas for YEARS and finally decided to use it!
This is a photo of my Boxer who was maybe about 1 at the time, went through her Obedience training.....and surprisingly graduated! It was a chore....she is a super hyper challenging pet! But we love her and she loves us....I think.

Can't wait to see what you come up with!

"Nawiliwili, Hawaii" LO by DT Sherri

It's Monday! :) 

Lets start the week off with this lovely layout by DT Sherri:
Here's what Sherri shares about her layout:
"'INKS'- Such a little word - but not such a little challenge! I will admit that I did find the letters 'I' and 'N' a bit of a challenge - BUT I did find some yummy 'stuff' while searching through my 'STASH!' 

Here are the items that I used for the Challenge:

I- Ink (for edge distressing) and Graphic 45's Garden Isle paper from Tropical Travelogue
N- Net ( love this - I stapled it on!)
K - Key, Kaisercraft Sandy Toes Collection "Sea Shells"
S - Staples, Starfish, Stickers, Seashells

This is a photo from our 2012 Disney Wonder, Hawaiian Cruise. It was taken on the ship, just after we returned from an AMAZING excursion along the Breathtaking Na'Pali Coastline. It is a day we will never forget! I am really happy with how this layout came out. I LOVE the Bright Blue mats with the off white Starfish paper, and I couldn't resist combining some my Graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue Collection colors together with them. Since this was a Disney Cruise, I had to add a few Mickey's to the layout too! There are 3 of them - can you find them?

I hope you will play along with us for this SUPER FUN Challenge!
