"U R My Sunshine" Layout by DT Patricia

Hello there!
Today's adorable Sketch with Stash inspiration is the creative work of DT Patricia:
This is what Patricia shared about her layout and the challenge:
"This was a fun sketch to use. I used Pink Paislee " Hello Sunshine" Paper Collection for this layout as I like the colors which gave it a nice spring /summery feel. 

I used some of my favorite embellies on this layout, which included my lovely washi tape, twine, enamel dots, wooden veneers, journaling card, to name most. I enjoy being able to dig into my stash for random aphas, which in this case I used 2 different font types. Worked out perfect! 
Thanks for looking!"

"Backyard Pool" Layout by DT Megan

Happy Friday!
What better way to end the week than with some fabulous scrapbooking inspiration!
Today's lovely inspiration is the creative work of DT Megan, inspired by kour
June Sketch with Stash Challege
The "Tie Dye" Inspiration Challenge at Child's Play:
This is what Megan shared about her layout and the challenges:
"For this layout, I scrapped a picture of my son, Max in our "backyard" pool. Even though it is small, he has a lot of fun in it! I followed the sketch fairly close but did only use one photo. I was inspired by the Tie-Dye Challenge to make my own background. I used some Sixxiz circle dies and a Versamark pen to draw the circles on white cardstock. I then embossed them with white embossing powder. After embossing, I sprayed the background with three different Mr. Huey mist colors. To keep the circles white, I wiped the mist off with a baby wipe. I used vellum for the strips going from the top - down on the layout so the background would still be visible. I used two enamel dots in dark pink and used green thickers for "Pool" and small green block letter stickers for "Max".

Today's inspiration is the creative work of DT Kelly and is her last design team reveal at

Her adorable layout was inspired by our
This is what Kelly shared about her page and the challenge:
"I "tie-dyed" my color strips using Versamark ink with a butterfly stamp. It was interesting to see the outcome of each color as it dried! I used Queen & Co. enamel dots and a super old glitter & crocheted flower in the center. I find it hard to scrap the older photos but this challenge really made it fun! 
I will really miss being a part of the design team here at SOS and have loved every one of the challenges! Brenda & Rochelle are amazing and really make SOS such a super fun challenge site. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of such a fantastic design team and I hope to follow along with future challenges!"

Hi there!
Today's amazing June Sketch with Stash inspiration is being shared by DT Jenni and is Jenni's last reveal as a Design Team member at Scrap Our Stash!  
We're gonna miss having her on our team and the wonderful "Start to Finish" videos she creates and shares with us!
And this is what Jenni shared about her page:
"Sadly, this is my last challenge as a DT member at Scrap Our Stash, so I wanted it to be special. I decided to focus on the idea of time passing so quickly! These photos are of a rainy day craft project from last summer.
I tried to fade distress inks together with a roller stamp to mimic the vertical pieces in the sketch. For the stash part of the challenge, I used a combination of rub-on sequins, real sequins and enamel dots to embellish. I can't wait to see what everyone is inspired to create!
I also want to thank all the amazingly talented DT for being so much fun to work with, and especially to Brenda and Rochelle for being a great leader, inspiration and friend to me!"

I hope you are enjoying your weekend!!!
Today's fabulous Sketch with Stash inspiration is being shared by DT Leila:
Here is what Leila share about her layout:
I have always loved photographs, but after I became a mother always walking with a camera in hand, has become very common. I love every little moment of registering children and then remembering how they grew, and how their characteristics have changed. 

This is a picture of my youngest qdo, when he was 1 year and a half or so. Today he is a little boy of almost 7 years. How I miss this cute and naughty face. 

The sketch is a grace and I loved playing with it.   I decided to make some chevrons and paint with gelatos.   For the background paper I used the colors in the photo for inspiration. I added enamel dots are on the left side of the photo.
I hope you enjoy.

For this challenge I started with white cardstock for my background.  I used my clear block and stamped tim holtz distress ink into the block and sprayed with water and then I stamped it into the background paper to create a watercolor look to meet the requirements of the

Our June Guest Designer
Claire R
has created this beautiful layout inspired by our
June Sketch with Stash Challenge
Child's Play "Tie Dye" Challenge:
12 yrs Later...
This is what Claire shared about her layout:
 "Great challenge! I had lots of fun creating this layout because I did something I haven't done in a long time, used my Tim Holtz distressed inks. Interestingly enough I do not have any purple in my stash, I have all the other colors of the inspiration board but purple. So I pulled out my TH concord distressed ink and made my own purple tie dye-esque layer and to wash it out, I added some gesso. I side flipped the sketch to accommodate landscape photos. For my stash items, I used the last of my sequins, and I use two Thicker alpha stickers, Amy Tangerine kal barteski foam and American Craft patchwork fabric. I'm also working on my stash of button. 
I look forward to seeing all your wonderful layouts using this week's challenges."

Kate said:
Monochromatic challenges always are a challenge for me...almost impossible! I love kraft paper so I started with that and just kept my monochromatic color in the tan/kraft family. I used washi tapes, SC wood star veneers, 5 different scraps of tan/brown papers, cool wood buttons from MME, and some krafty looking stickers. More scrapping of my son's long journey to wellness

"That Face" LO by DT Megan

Hello Crafters…. It's Friday!!! ":)

Let's start the weekend with this awesome inspiration from DT Megan:
This is what Megan said about her layout:
"For my layout, I used different shades of blue as I felt they complimented this picture of my youngest son, Max. For the title, I cut "that" with my Silhouette Cameo and used some older K & Company chipboard letters for "face". The chipboard was a lighter blue, so I used some prima chalk ink to darken the letters. My five different stash items used were 1 washi tape (navy polka dot), 2 chipboard shapes (heart & geotag), 3 puffy stickers (star & small dots), 1 flag clip (navy) and 1 label sticker."

Make sure you stop by tomorrow to see what DT Kate has for us! :)

One shipping tag.

Three different pink washi tapes.
Six heart shape puffy Stickers.
One paper doilly.
And one metal frame.

"Everyday is an Adventure" LO by DT Kerry

Hello All! 

Kerry inspires us today with this lovely layout:
Here's what Kerry said about her layout:

"The photo was my starting point with this layout as it was virtually all blue, then I grabbed my Pebbles Basics collection and found two shades of blue in different patterns. The top was misted once with blue ink then misted again using a sunburst mask. Then the real fun began - hunting through my stash for blue embellishments. 
Here are the five items I added.
1. wooden butterflies and bicycle.
2. two project life cards.
3. washi tape.
4. photo corner stickers.
5. glitter dots."

I look forward to seeing your monochromatic pages.

"Tickle Time" LO by DT Kelly

Hey Crafters! 

Today's wonderful inspiration comes DT Kelly:
This is what Kelly said about her layout:
"I am such a fan of color and usually bright colors so when I saw it was a monochromatic challenge, I thought how about orange! I had fun digging through my stash for stickers, chipboard (button & 'heart' you), vellum (small hot air balloon), twine & a doily for my 5 stash items. I also used products from Echo Park, Basic Grey & My Minds Eye. When I came across the vellum hot air balloon, I decided to create my own hot air balloon. I really loved how the layout focuses completely on the photos!"

Make sure you come back tomorrow for more inspiration! :)

Hey Crafters!

Today we are inspiring you with this awesome monochromatic layout by DT Jenni:
Here's what Jenni says about her layout:
"This Challenge was the perfect opportunity to break out as much bling as I could! The word monochrome might sound a little boring, but a million different shades of the same color can be powerful! For the stash part of the Challenge I used: 1 glitter die cut banner, i glitter arrow, 2 gold foil vellum leaves, 2 word stickers, 3 pieces of chipboard, 1 gold doily, 1 gold clothespin and 2 wood veneers misted with, yep, gold. Whew! Have fun with this one!!"
