"Love" LO by DT Aurelie

Good Morning! 

Today, we are sharing this wonderful layout from Designer Aurelie:
Asa shared this about her layout:
"I'll admit it. I've been known to buy a collection or two or... twenty?;)... just because I find them absolutely beautiful. However, when it comes time to work with them, I get stuck. 'Tis was the case with My Mind' Eye's Stella & Rose - Hattie collection, c. 2011. Yes, that's right. It's been sitting in my stash for five years now, just waiting to be chosen for a project. Yes, I lifted layouts I had found on the internet when it first came out, but I had yet to use it predominantly on a layout of my own. But not anymore! So happy with how this layout turned out.

I Layered tons of different Hattie patterned papers along with some of its sticker chipboard, tags and labels. In order to create some matching embellishments, I even fussy-cut some of those flowers from the boldest piece of patterned paper. I also incorporated some MME patterned papers from the Lost & Found - Sunshine collection that came out a few months later in 2011. I had specifically bought them because they matched the Hattie collection so much! There are also some Sunshine collection buttons on there. 

Other than that, I added some Crate Paper chipboard title and sticker embellishments along with a Maya Road banner clip, some American Crafts alphas and corrugated cardstock, Magic Mesh, Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze, and some handy stitching using a Bazzill Basics stitching template and some DMC floss. And my +3? You guessed it! The colors - grey, harvest gold, and indigo. As soon as I saw the proposed colors in the lists, I immediately thought of this collection and thought to myself, "I am long overdue to scrap with this collection!" SO very happy I did!"

"Ensemble" LO by DT Marie

Hello and Happy Friday!

Today's inspiration is from our Designer Marie.
Check out her beautiful layout:

Marie shared this about her layout:
"I used the color combo from the list, these three colors together are such a great combination! Really love them! I used a paper from Ella & Viv for my background. Their papers are amazing, they are sturdy enough for any mixed media composition and the colors are bold and vivid. At first I was a bit scared by the sketch. Then, I went in my stash and tried to find elements and embellishments that would fit into it. And one by one, they fell into place, without me noticing that the sketch was really taking shape right under my eyes. Happy scrapping times!"

Just a couple more days to upload your layout.

"All Smiles" LO by DT Zsoka

Happy Monday!

We are starting off the week with this fabulous layout from our Designer Zsoka:
Zsoka shared this about her layout:
"Hi there scrappy friends, Zsoka here with you today with my layout for the November sketch challenge. I really loved this sketch! Of course if there are circles in a sketch, it's all good in my book :). The Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills collection just came out and I just had to use it on every layout I did that time (I think about 15!). So in love with this line, the blue and the mustard...Just gorgeous! I decided to go with white background which I very rarely do, but I had so many different color and patterned papers to use that a patterned background would have been too busy even for me :). For my circles I used one of my favourite cut files from Just Nick Studio. I use this often, it's so cute, isn't it? From the lists I chose:
1. grey
2. gold (the little heart clip on the photo)
3. indigo
The washi tape is from Freckled Fawn and fits this PF collection perfectly!

I hope I could inspire you today in one way or another! Thanks for stopping by! 
X Zsoka"

List 1 : Grey (circle, paper and flowers) and

As for the list items, I included Grey, Harvest Gold & an Index Card (tag). I wasn't sure about including both grey and gold on my page, but the additional colors really help to pull it all together.

Check out her awesome layout based on the

Stephanie shared this about her layout:
Our trip to England last summer brought us to this old warship in Portsmouth. The golden color of the ship inspired me to get it scrapped. I followed the sketch pretty closely, as you can see. I did eliminate the circle elements and used just one larger photo instead of two smaller ones.
Items I used from the list are as follows:
List 1 - Glitz (golden anchor print is Glitz Design)
List 2 - Harvest Gold (polka dot print)
List 3 - Indigo (photo mat, stripe and other prints)

"My husband and I visited the beautiful Black Forest in Germany last year and cuckoo clocks and all things cherry were everywhere! My husband is always obliging with the silly hats we come across in our travels although, I'm not sure he knew he was going to end up on a scrapbook page when he let me take this picture. 

I really loved the sketch this month so I pretty much followed it to a T. I used all the colours in the challenge plus some glitzy cherries, inkadinkado ink and I made an index card using a die. The cuckoo clock and scroll hippie are from Dusty Attic and the papers I have had in my stash for many years."

"Journey" Layout by DT Aurelie Cormier

Today SOS Designer Aurelie is sharing the lovely layout she created 
inspired by the 
e"As soon as I saw the Dr. Seuss book cover for this month's challenge, I immediately thought of an old October Afternoon collection I've had on hand for years - Rocket Age. Remember that one? c. 2011? Oh, yes. But, never in a million years did I think I'd end up using it for a wedding layout! ;) Here you see very, very good friends of ours on their wedding day in 2008. Set on an Echo Park Fall Blessings patterned paper, I layered different-sized squares in a "random" sequence. I then layered the photo on top of Stampin' Up vellum, ripped cardboard box pieces, and a piece of ruled transparency in gold foil. There's also an OA Rocket Age ephemera piece underneath there. I then sprinkled some Studio Calico wood veneer stars (as per the challenge!) along with some Stampin' Up tiny brads, Heidi Swapp mist, and Tattered Angels glaze. There's also a Crate Paper brad and title sticker, October Afternoon alphas, stickers, and button, Stampin' Up cardstock, and of course, my go-to hand-stitching using a Crafter's Workshop stitching template and some DMC floss."
