Sherri Caramico
created based on this month's
December Blend-A-Sketch Challenge: 
Sherri shares this about her layout:
"I fell in love with the colors and style of PhotoPlay's "Vintage Girl" Collection. I've had it in my stash for a few months and couldn't wait to use it. From the LEFT Sketch - I used 2 square photos, title placement, and paper layering behind the photos.  
From the RIGHT Sketch - I used the scalloped strip across the middle of the layout, along with flowers and leaves for the embellishments.
For my (3) like items - I used: 3 pink flowers, 3 black gems, 3 enamel brads, 3 different fibers.
I hope you find some YOU time and can play along with us this busy month!
Wishing you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season!

 inspired by the
December Blend-A-Sketch Challenge: 
Angela shares this about her layout:
"Hey there, hi there, ho there! My layout for this fun challenge is a good mix of both sketches. I've done the title in the same area as the right hand sketch and the journaling like the sketch on the left. I also added lots of layers which I saw in both sketches. For my 3+ items I've done chipboard snowflakes and pearls also. Hope you find time for some scappy fun this month."

"Snow Much Fun" Layout by Designer Lori Stroup

Happy Thursday!
Today we are showcasing an awesome layout created by
Designer Lori Stroup
inspired by the
December Golden Globe Inspired Stash Challenge

"Hello, everyone! Lori here today to share my take on the December Golden Globe Challenge, which is to make a winter layout and use snowflakes for embellishments.

My layout is of my granddaughter building her first snowman of the season. We were lucky enough to get a little snow in November - which is kind of early for us - and it was perfect for building a snowman, so we took advantage of it!

I have used several snowflake stickers and snowflakes punched out of the patterned paper for my embellishments. You can read more about my layout on my blog here:

Thanks so much for stopping by today. We would love to see what you create!"

"All Bundled Up" Layout by Designer Michelle Mattie

More amazing winter themed inspiration to share with you.
Designer Michelle Mattie
created the amazing page below inspired by the
December Golden Globe Inspired Stash Challenge:
"Hey everyone. Can you believe that December is here?? I don’t know where the time goes. I have my take on the Golden Globe Stash Challenge for this month. We were to create a winter layout and use snowflake embellishments. I created a page of my daughter and grandson out in their yard last winter. For the snowflake embellishments I used some snowflake ephemera and also embossed some snowflakes on vellum and then fussy cut them. Love how they turned out!! Thanks for stopping by."
