"Best. Box. EVER." LO by DT Steffanie

Hello Crafters!

Steffanie is inspiring us today with this beautiful layout:
This is what Steffanie said about her layout:
"Studio Calico was my go-to for this layout about my calico kitty! Purrr-fect, right? Okay, all punning aside, I had a lot of fun with this one. The sketch initially threw me. I like to take up more real estate on my layouts with my papers and photos than this one did. Obviously, I didn't let that stop me. I had these 4x6 photos in my stash, cropped them to 4x4's and made it work for me. The best part about sketches---they are flexible!
My ABC's:
A=arrow (one wood, one stitched)
B=buttons, baker's twine
C=circles (punched) and chipboard alphas
My 123's:
1=journal card, tucked behind the right photo (says "today")
2=two photos
3=patterned papers 
Technically, I used more than three patterned meant AT LEAST three, right?  I kept it to five, if you count the background. 
Thank you, Rochelle, for an awesome sketch!"

"Smile Selfie Time" Layout by DT Claire

Today's  inspiration is a non school themed layout created by DT Claire,
inspired by our 
Claire shared this about her reveal:
"I used My Mind's Eye Chalk Studio II to create this layout. For my stash items: I used chalkboard paper for the background from list A; and alphas, papers clips, chalkboard embellishments, file folders, and numbers from list B.
This layout is from our San Diego trip we took this summer. It is always a challenge for me to create layouts during back to school days. But I am always up for a challenge and thinking outside the box. I thought these photos in a bank vault went very well with the chalkboard theme. I can't wait to see what you do with the back to school stash challenge. 
And it doesn't have to be school themed."

Claire's awesome take on our "Back to School" Stash Challenge is an excellent example of how thinking out of the box, will allow you to use various themed items in your stash to create various types of pages.

Inspired yet to dig out your school themed supplies to create a page and share with us?  
We would love to see what you come up with!

Thank you for visiting us today and make sure you stop back by tomorrow for more Design Team inspiration!

created by DT Nicole:
Nicole shared this with us about her layout:
"I will admit, this one was a real challenge. I had to dig really deep for an school picture of mine and found this one. 1984! That was a long time ago! I wanted to keep this layout bright and colorful, reminiscent of childhood in the 80's, so I chose to use papers, including the dictionary pattern, from the Simple Stories' Summer Fresh collection and several fun embellishments from my stash. From the stash list provided, I used alphas, numbers, a paperclip, an apple, a notebook and a pencil. I can't wait to see your take on this challenge!"
