"Us" Layout by DT Megan

Today's fabulous inspiration is the creative work of DT Megan, inspired by our 
February Sketch with Stash Challenge:
Here is what Megan shared about her layout:
"For this layout, I scrapped a picture of my husband and I from the fall. I substituted doilies for the hearts in the sketch and added lots of layering. For the heart and arrow, I used wood veneers and colored them with chalk ink. I cut out the title and a few other elements from gold POW paper from American Crafts using my silhouette cameo. The products are mostly Maggie Holmes lines for Crate Paper."

You have until 11:59 PM (PST) tonight to create a layout inspired by either of our two challenges for an entry into our February prize drawing, sponsored this month by Frosted Designs!!!

"I Love You" Layout by DT Tanti

Hello and thank you for stopping by!
Today's featured layout is being shared by DT Tanti, inspired by our
Here is what Tanti shared about her layout:
"For this sketch I've decided to make a girly layout again I had a lot of fun making this page, using almost all of my old embellishments. 
All the papers I used including that heart PP for the background is from the old DCWV paper collection „Madly In Love“. 
I drew freehanded two big hearts with a pencil and coloured one of them with the water colour. I didn't erase the pencil line to give my page an interesting touch. And the other heart is a shaker background with sequins in it.
My premade heart and arrow embellishments are those glitter foam rubber stickers at both corners and also the three mini heart puffy stickers on the polaroid frame. Unfortunately I don't know from which company they are."

Remember you have until tomorrow Feb 27th, 11:59 PM (PST) to create a layout inspired by either or both of our February Challenges and link up with us for a chance to win a $20 gift card, generously provided by our awesome sponsor this month:

Enjoy the rest of your day!!!!

"Oh So Lovely" Layout by DT Kerry

Thank you for stopping by to check out today's awesome inspiration created by 
DT Kerry and inspired by our 
Kerry shared this about her layout:
"I have been wanting to use this heart paper for ages and so when this challenge came up I just knew it was perfect! The photo of my youngest DD and our old cat was very colourful so I re-printed it in B & W so it wouldn't clash with my colour choice for my page.
The packaged hearts are the brad in the centre of the rosette and two heart pins. The arrow is under the photo and originally was wooden but I dressed it up by covering it in gold washi tape and a star sequin.
I really hope you can join in the fun with this challenge and I look forward to seeing your creations."

Double Design Team Inspiration Today!!!!!

Happy Monday!!!
February is a short month so today, we have doubled up on Design Team inspiration!!!
So grab a cup of coffee or tea, and gt ready to be inspired with today's double dose of beautiful inspiration created by DT Kate and DT Kelly, inspired by our
February Sketch with Stash Challenge:

First up is DT Kate sharing her lovely layout,
"The Best Is Yet to Come"
Here is what kate shared about her layout:
"Just a casual family picture-We try to catch daddy in the picture when we can which isn't as often as we'd like!
This was the last day of school June 2013-a tradition we do instead of the first day of school,; it's less chaotic! Anytime I can scrap a family picture is a good day for me and as our kids are doing better in school and getting older, we believe the best is yet to come!!

I used my wood veneer as my arrow (I am addicted to wood veneers) and used some Elle's Studio wood veneer hearts in there as well as some Heidi Swapp hearts. Heart paper is from the awesome Creative Girl collection by Cosmo Cricket. The rest is just stash that I thought was romantic and said LOVE to me"

Now check out this adorable layout created by DT Kelly
"Nighttime Moments"
And this is what Kelly shared about her layout:
"My Minds Eye Love me Do patterned papers have been hanging around for a while and were perfect for this sweet photo of my boys. I used the Studio Calico wood veneer hearts and arrow and my mini heart punch for extra floating hearts. Such a super fun sketch to work with!"

You still have 3 more days to create your take on this challenge and link it up for a chance to win this awesome prize from our February Sponsor, Frosted Designs

"Love, You + Me = Good Times" Layout by DT Dulcinea

Happy Monday!
Today's sweet Sketch with Stash inspiration is being shared by DT Dulcinea:
This is what Dulcinea shared about her layout:
"For this layout I wanted a lovely, but masculine look. For that reason I choose a clean white background with  heart stitching to give a texture and matching the sketch and some geometric elements. I used two hearts patterned paper on the back of my picture, from Carta Bella's "Hello Again" Collection.. One has the same geometric look of the sticker heart that I used as an embellishment. I then completed my page with a heart (stickers and wood), arrows (stickers), some sequins and a little bit of stamping.  My layout is about my two lovers: my husband and our cat on their moments."

We have provided the sketch, Frosted Designs has provided this month's prize, so now all you need to do is dig into that large stash of yours and pull out some patterned paper with hearts, an arrow and a heart, and create a wonderful page to share with us!!!

Looking forward to seeing all of your beautiful pages!

Have a great day!

"My Cute Little Girl" LO by DT Tanti

Happy Hump Day! :)
Tanti brings us today's lovely inspiration:

Here's what Tanti said about her layout:
"I 've realized that I haven't done much layout about my daughter as a baby. It's just because all of the pictures were taken with an analog camera and most of them are already glued in the ordinary photo album. So I don't have much photo left to scrap. But I finally found these old photos of her as she was one year old (she's fifteen now) and decided to make a girly layout with these pictures for this challenge.

I used from my stash the old DCWV paper collection „Madly In Love“. 
I did the machine stitching along the right side of my page.
Two Washi Tapes that I don't know from which company they are.
Two arrow paper clips from IKEA.
And the kraft journaling card is from K&Company."

Don't forget to get your layout linked up to the right of the blog! If you need more information on this stash challenge, click HERE! :)

"Nap Time" LO by DT Kerry

DT Kerry brings us this fabulous inspiration today:
Here's what Kerry said about her layout:

"I am currently trying to scrap some of my older/less than perfect photo's and this one of my middle daughter is from 1999!   I love hand stitching so it was no contest about which type I would choose, I used light pink tread to highlight the painted sunburst.  The MME chevron washi tape is my favourite and I used a strip down the side of the photo and also mounted some on card and cut out.
The pink arrow on the photo is actually a post-it tab and the awesome printed kraft paper is of course American Crafts.  It's been a long time since I have done a 'pink' page but the kraft works so well at toning it down!  Will you be using pink, red or a mix for your page? I'm looking forward to seeing it."

"Play all Day" LO by Kelly

Happy Monday! :) 
Today's fabulous inspiration comes from DT Kelly:

Here's what Kelly said about her layout:
"Play All Day - I really enjoyed this challenge! I recently discovered my sewing machine won't work so I did some faux stitching (S) in the corners of the layout and the corners of the photo mat. I added the blue strips of washi tape (W) after I had the layout in place and thought it needed more pop of color. The wood veneer arrows (A) are truly some of my favorites from Studio Calico and the kraft paper (K) is my background and photo matt layers. I used many different scraps of papers for this layout and a current sketch from Stuck Sketches for inspiration."

Check out the current challenge HERE!

"True Love" LO by DT Robin

Today Robin brings us this lovely inspiration:
Robin said this about her layout:

"I’m not much on romance, but I sure did enjoy making this layout. I used some very old stash and some pretty new stash.
S. - Stitching (machine, hand or faux), I hand stitched the word LOVE. The stitching stencil is from Amy Tangerine.
W. - Washi Tape-I don’t remember where that red bicycle Washi tape is from, but I love the look of it on my layout. Normally, I would think I have to have pictures of a bicycle or a bicycle riding trip on the layout to use that tape.
A. – Arrow-the arrow and outlined heart is from Freckled Fawn.
K. - Kraft paper/embellishment-the kraft background paper is also from Amy Tangerine. And the Kraft ticket is from Tim Holtz."
