November Stash Challenge #32 ~ Guest Designer Daniela Dobson

Good morning  and welcome to the reveal of 
Stash Challenge #32

But before we reveal our challenge, meet our 
November Guest Designer
Daniela Dobson
"My name is Daniela Dobson and I live in Dallas, TX. I am married to Peter and we have a little boy, Alex, who is 7 years old. I have been scrapbooking and stamping for over 15 years. I really enjoy challenges and strive to be innovative. I love recording every day moments, especially now, with my son. I have always kept a record of my life through journaling and photos, and scrapbooking allows me to combine those two. I don’t want to forget the important and not so important moments. When I am not scrapbooking I enjoy cooking, running, reading, and watching TV. I am currently designing for Technique Tuesday, Impression Obsession, Therm O Web, Elle’s Studio and Emma’s Paperie. I am really excited to be Guest Designing this month.

My blog: Create Your Everyday Memories"

Thank you Daniela for agreeing to be our guest this month!!!

Here's the challenge:

Now that we have the challenge and the rules out of the way, it is time for a little
Stash Challenge inspiration.

Check out the fun, bright layout  GDT Daniela Dobson created inspired by our challenge.

"Play in the Puddles"
Daniela shared this with us about her page:
"I had to challenge myself to get some of the items from “ALBUMS” on the page. I really had a hard time with “U” and umbrella kept coming up. I knew I had a photo of my son with his umbrella so I thought I would design one in my Silhouette Studio. The umbrella creation prompted me to make a cloud with some rain coming down. I designed the page with a large letter “A” that is outlined with a Silhouette sketch pen and then cut out with the Cameo. Here are all the challenge supplies I used on the layout:
A – letter A (for Alex)
L – lines on the paper background
B – buttons
U – umbrella
M – modeling paste (for the triangles)
S – stripes, stars, Silhouette, and stickers"

Are you inspired by Daniela's awesome layout and/or the challenge?
 If so, I sure hope you get a chance to dig through your stash, create a layout and share it with us for a chance to win this month's prize:

Thank you for stopping by and we hope you return tomorrow for more 
Stash Challenge inspiration from our Design Team.

Also, keep an eye out this month if you are interested in being a part of our team.
We will be posting a Design Team Call for our Jan - June 2016 term  

Have a great day!

  2. awesome! Thank you for inspiring us as our guest this month!

  3. Great page, love the A. U is always a difficult letter in these challenges isn't it?

    1. Thank you. I searched all over the internet for manufacturer that started with U. LOL. Letter A is just a font, either Robot or Claridon.

  4. Daniela, your page is absolutely amazing! Thank you so much for guest designing this month!

  5. Coming up with a "U" was hard making this an especially fun challenge! Your layout is super adorable!

  6. U was a little tough! But I think I did it! =)
