"13" Layout by DT Dulcinea

Today's featured inspiration is this wonderful layout created by DT Dulcinea, inspired by our
April Sketch with Stash Challenge
This is what Dulcina share about her layout:
"I begin this challenge with the sketch and a single vertical picture of my teenage nephew. It's a great sketch for using patterned paper, and I wanted to use some I was collecting, but not using. Since I was using different collections, I stuck with blue and cream for making my papers match beautifully together
. For patterned paper I choose: Crate Paper (Sleight Ride and The Pier collections), October Afternoon (Woodland Park), Simple Stories (Urban Traveler Collection). 
For embellishments I used vellum, clip, button and some stickers from (K&Company, October Afternoon, Simple Stories, Studio Calico), and I finished with the cork board numbers and circles (from Studio Calico) to complete this great challenge.
 Now it's your turn! I want to see what you create!"

If you have some scraps you have been hanging onto, this is a great challenge to put them to use.

"Ready For Adventure" Layout by DT Carol

Hi There!
Today's feature is the awesome work of DT Carol, inspired by our current
This is what Carol shared about her layout:
"This was a real challenge for me because I do not like to mix and match! When I have to complete a page, I always use papers and embellies from one same collection... 
For this layout I used papers from Crate Paper Boys Rule, DIY Shop and October Afternoon Daily Flash. 
Embelishments are from Crate Paper Boys Rule, Maggie Holmes and October Afternoon Daily Flash. The little circle on the right corner is corkboard.

Although mixing and matching collections is not Carol's thing, she did an awesome job mixing and matching her products to create a fantastic page!  If you are reluctant to mix and match, I hope Carol has inspired you to dig into your stash and match up some of your product to create a layout using this month's sketch!

Have a beautiful day!

Welcome back our April Guest Designer,
Lynn L
Here is what Lynn created inspired by 
April's Sketch with Stash Challenge:
"Believe In Yourself"
Here is what Lynn shared about her reveal:
"I think this is such a clever challenge! Most times I try to use the same manufacturer on a layout, which is sometimes difficult with limited product. By using multiple manufacturers, you get to use up some stash... Yay!! it's a win/win! I am totally into fussy cutting brushstoked titles lately! F-U-N and super frugal! Make your own personal brushstoked title with your stash and be creative!"

Lynn has done an excellent job mixing and matching her stash of patterned papers and embellishments as well as using corrugated board to add some texture to her page!
We hope her page inspires you to dig into your stash, find some of your scraps and create a lovely page to share with us.
 And if you are inspired by her brushstroked fussy cut title work, give that a try and let us know in your write up on your post when uploading your entry!

"Micah & Me" LO by DT Megan

Hello Crafters!

Today's amazing inspiration comes from our DT Megan:
This is what Megan said about her layout:
"When I think of a Scrapbook line with spring colors, I immediately think of Dear Lizzy. I used a lot of her Neapolitan and 5th & Frolic collections on this layout of my niece, Micah, and me. For the 3D embellishment, I added some butterfly embellishments from Basic Grey. I used a paperclip to hold the "2" in place. The journaling card I used was originally a 3x4 card that I cut in half. I wrote my journaling and added it to the lower left corner. I finished the layout off with a stitched banner."

Have a great day!

"I (Heart) Spring" LO by DT Tanti

Happy Saturday! 

Our fabulous inspiration for today comes from a layout created Tanti:

Here's what Tanti said about her layout: 
"Spring has been always my favorite season of the year. So, to interpret the spirit of spring, I chose the colours light blue, pink, yellow, light green and purple for my layout.  From my stash I added the flower paper clip on the upper left corner of my photo. My journaling card is the green scallop square card under the title and the layers.   I think I've added enough 3D embellishments on this page. And what I like the most about this challenge is that I had a chance again to use up my leftover 3D flowers. Yay! 

Thanks for stopping by today.  :)

"Hello Spring" LO by DT Kerry

It's Friday! I hope you all had a great week!  Lets bring in the weekend with this adorable layout by DT Kerry:

Kerry said this about her layout:

Although I don't do Project Life I do like the grid format and the cute cards you can so easily add to your projects, so I decided to use the grid design for my Spring layout to keep it uniform and simple.
Spring colours are so fresh and happy, inspiring me to use these adorable photo's of our little cat enjoying the Spring sunshine in our garden recently.
I added black hand stitching for the grid and to anchor the little flower paperclip. My 3D butterfly embellishment sits on a Pebbles journal card that I trimmed so that it was about the size of the PL cards I used.
What is it about Spring that you love? Join us in this challenge and get inspired by those bright and fresh Spring colours. xx

Remember you have until April 29th to upload your Stash Challenge #13 for a chance to win the monthly prize sponsored by Your Scrapbook Stash! :)
