Brenda said: "Great sketch to work with!!! I changed the size of the photo to a 4 x 4 which allowed me to utilize a MME 6 x 6 paper pad to create my layout. For the stash part of this challenge I was able to use a Prima flower and also 3 Recollections flowers from my stash!"

"Spring Recital" LO by DT Haley

Haley did a great job with the sketch incorporating the Recital program as one of the layered papers adhering it with washi tape.  Fabulous idea!:) Take a look:

Haley said: "Using a new paper pack is using your stash too, right? I could not believe how well Close To My Heart's Dream Pop paper pack matched my daughter's spring piano recital! I cut down the program to use as one of the page elements of the sketch. My chipboard flowers are from Around the Block. I also used flower sequins & brads from Queen & Co. along with CTMH flower brads and flower gems (retired). The pearl flourishes and washi tape are current products. The peach ribbon was some that I had in my stash that may have been a Target Dollar Spot find. I had fun designing the second page to coordinate with the sketch."

Here's the sketch:

Happy Friday Ladies!!!  
Today we are sharing Tamara's layout about her time at the CK Convention! How fun!!!  Tamara's did a wonderful job with the sketch and a fantastic job using up the flowers in her stash!! 

Tamara R.: "Flowers are something I have a lot of. My stash is loaded! This was a fun sketch, I love the angled papers. I added clusters of flowers with button centers and stickles on the little ones. I have been fortunate enough to attend many CK events. This was one of them. The cowboy print pattern paper was inserted in the middle of this program so I thought it fitting to use it on my layout. Thanks for helping me dig into my stash."

I have used papers in matching colours and more than three flowers from Prima, glitter in pink and lace. The purple lace is coloured by the same splash-paint that I used on the layout. — atKungsträdgården Park & Evenemang."

Lindsey did a wonderful job using up her stash on this challenge! She created a beautiful tree using Jolee's flowers and she did a fantastic job inking up the white space.  Great job Lindsey! 

Lindsey said: "This sketch was so much fun! The sketch wasn't at all restrictive, so I kinda loaded on the details. The background is crayon and Tattered Angels, the framing paper is Daisy D's, the flowers and tree are from an old (very old) Jolee's package! I'd say this was a fun run through some old, old stash!"

"Apple Festival" LO by DT Michelle

Today we have Michelle's layout to share.  She did a great job on the sketch and love how she used the pearl swirl with her flowers! 
Michelle writes:"Been wanting to scrap this pic for a long time. Had the apple paper and the flocked vine paper pulled out for this picture, but had no inspiration. Found the apple slide mount so I used it for my title on the opposite side as the sketch gave. The bird is a sticker added to a large tag which holds my journaling under the mat."

Tammy said, "For this challenge I just knew I wanted to use some of my Websters Pages and Prima flowers, I have so many of them! The photo is my oldest daughter, it's one of my favorite photos of her so I kept the layout kind of simple so as not to lose focus of the picture.

Layout by DT Haley


From the Scrap Our Stash Design Team

Today's inspiration is the work of DT Haley.  Haley's layout was inspired by our current Stash Challenge:  Patterned Paper Party


Haley:  "For this challenge, I dug DEEP into my stash for the photos (ice skating in 2009) and then found three patterned papers that I thought went well with the pictures: the green from Close To My Heart's Olivia paper pack, the purple from CTMH's Hooligans paper pack, and the blue from a Colorbok paper pad. I used some Around the Block chipboard flowers (it was spring break after all), Queen & Co. Sassy Sequins & brads, and CTMH's Nature Ambience rub-ons. Thanks for a great challenge to help me scrap some older photos!


So what patterned paper is in your stash, that you can mix and match?   We would also like to see what rub-ons you have stashed away!   Dig it all out, create a layout and link it up before the 29th of May to be entered into our monthly prize drawing!  

Enjoy the rest of your day!

"Beautiful You" Layout by DT Brenda

Hi Everyone!
Today I am sharing a layout I created inspired by our
Patterned Paper Party Challenge
I had planned to use Pebbles "Seen & Noted" collection for these photos.  So...for this challenge once I decided on a design, all I had to do was substitute a couple of the papers I had chosen from the "Seen & Noted" collection.   For the base and one of the layers I used papers from the MME Miss Caroline "Dilly Daily" Collection.   To create my butterflies and the punched flower under the tag, I used a news print patterned paper from Echo Park's "Photo Freedom" collection.  I hardly ever use rub-ons so before starting my project I dug through all of my stash of rub-ons to make sure I had something that would go with the layout I had planned.  I found an unopened package of Bo Bunny "Garden Chic" rub-ons and used the word "Beafutiful" as part of my title work and I also used the flourishes on the top and bottom corners of the layout.

Now it's your turn to dig through your stash and pulll out some paper and some of those forgotten rub-ons!  
You have until May 29th to link up your entry!!!

Have a wonderful day!

"So Happy Together" Layout by DT Tammy

Hello
I hope everyone has had an awesome National Scrapbooking Weekend and you were able to join in some of the challenges and giveaways!!!   
Today SOS Designer Tammy is sharing a layout she created inspired by our 
Patterned Paper Party Challenge, which Tammy claims was a challenge for her but I think she did a great job mixing and matching patterned papers from various collections!!!

Tammy: "This challenge was a little challenging for me because although I love to use a lot of patterned paper, I don't usually mix manufacturers or collections. What a great challenge for me to step outside my comfort zone! My patterned papers were from Elle's Studio, Basic Grey, and Webster's Pages, as well as Luxe Rub-ons, My Mind's Eye decorative buttons and twine from The Twinery. I also used Debbie Sanders for Scrapbook Generation sketch for inspiration."

Thank for stopping by, we hope you get a chance to dig in your stash, mix and match some paper, create a layout and upload it to our challenge.   You have until May 29th to enter!!!
