Here's a layout from Guest Designer
Ginny Hickmott
inspired by this month's sketch challenge:
Ginny shares this about her layout:
"Hello again, I am back with my layout for July Sketch challenge using the word ‘FIREWORKS’. Here are my stash items I used for each of the letters: -

F: Flowers
I: Ink (paper edges)
R: Rosette
E: Embossing Powder (on title chipboard)
W: Wood
O: Outdoors (photo)
R: Rhinestones
K: Kaisercraft (papers)
S: Seed Beads

I really enjoyed doing this one, my colours were inspired from a colour combo photo I had seen, so after rummaging through my papers I came up with these Kaisercraft papers 50 Cents, these gorgeous patterns look fabulous layered up. I do love to add a little mixed media to my layouts and this one has a little! I created the background ‘circle’ from the sketch with gesso applied with a palette knife. I have a rhinestone circle on top of that. My chipboard title was altered with embossing powder. My edges have all been distressed and inked with Frayed Burlap, and in the background, I have added mists and seed beads. The layout is finished off with the flowers clusters, buttons, rosette and wood icons. The ‘outdoor’ photo is my DD riding a few years ago, we used to trundle through the lanes picking flowers as we went! If you would like to see more details and photos of this layout then please visit my blog here http://shabbypapers.blogspot.co.uk/
I have really enjoyed being a guest designer here at Scrap Our Stash this month and seeing what you are all creating. I hope I have inspired you with this month’s challenges! 
Ginny"

"All Girl" Layout by Designer Angela Weisbeck

Happy Friday everyone!
Today's incredible feature is the creative work of new
Designer Angela Weisbeck
inspired by the 
Angela:
"Hey! I'm super excited to be sharing my first Scrap Our Stash challenge layout as a DT member with you today! 
I chose to use the diagonal line including Numbers, Stars and a Banner. When I picked out these pictures of my daughter rip-sticking, I thought they would go great with a graffiti type layout and then I remembered this kit I got a year or so ago with all these fun spray paint elements and what do you know it even included a skate sticker!
So I started out with my brick background added some of my own misting, cut a strip of starred paper to go across near the bottom and picked out some fun washi to add to the feel of the layout. I did a lot of inking around the edges, hung my banner and finished off with my date and some fun stickers.
I'm excited to see what you do with the challenge! 
:) Angela"

"Lovely Girl" Layout by Designer Alicia Redshaw

Good morning!
Today we are showcasing an amazing layout created by new Scrap Our Stash
Designer Alicia Redshaw
inspired by the 
Alicia:  
'Hi Everyone and welcome to my first layout here at Scrap Our Stash as a Design Team Member. I had an awesome time creating with this month's SOS Tic Tac Toe Challenge, and used the diagonal row - Striped Paper, Stars and Twine.

I have used Daydreamer papers which are perfect for this photograph of my beautiful teenage daughter, Naomi-Jon. She was about to compete in a Raft Race when this photograph was taken at our local Harbour Festival this past Easter.

I have smushed some yellow mist on the background before flicking around some pink and silver mists. The lace border is peach glitter cardstock cut with a cutting die. As I love layers I have used the co-ordinating stickers and diecuts from the Daydreamer collection to send some messages of love and support to Naomi-Jon. Along with the sequins, pearls and stars, the shimmer twine was a finishing touch to help my layout pop.

Well that is my take on the July Tic Tac Toe Challenge, and now it is over to you - which row will you choose and how will you create with it…..

Here's the July board...

"Donuterie" Layout by Designer Sherri Caramico

Hello all!
Today we are showcasing the amazing layout returning
Designer Sherri Caramico 
created inspired by the
July Tic Tac Toe Stash Challenge
As you can see Sherri rocked several of the rows from the board...
Sherri:
"Hello and welcome to the July Tic Tac Toe Challenge at the Scrap Our Stash Blog - Sherri here with some “sweet” inspiration for you!! 

I LOVE a Tic Tac Toe Challenge - and this month, I couldn't decide which row to chose, so I picked a bunch of them!!
CENTER: The colors RED, WHITE and BLUE, Stars, Tag
DIAGONAL: Striped Paper, Stars, Twine
BOTTOM: Striped Paper, Tag, Banner (across the bottom)
** I'm almost tempted to go back and add a Number, Chipboard and Stamping - to "fill" the whole board!! - Maybe that is an idea for next month's challenge??!! 

On our first trip to Vancouver, BC in 2015, we made sure we visited Cartem's Donuterie! I had found them on line when searching for "vegan" food, for my oldest son, and saw that they made vegan donuts, (as well as regular ones too!) WELL.... that MIGHT depend upon what you think "regular" is! How about "Canadian Whiskey Maple Bacon" (Yes REAL Bacon!) or "Earl Grey" with actual Rose Petals sprinkled on it! I even made a “Donut Map” on the back of journaling tag tucked behind the donut photo, and listed all the flavors!

Many Vancouverites, commented on my precious cargo, with "YUM, Cartem's" as we walked back to our hotel!! Needless to say, they were correct - YUM! for sure!

I hope you will play along with us this month at Scrap Our Stash - Which row will you chose?
For further details, check out my Blog"
