Thursday Inspiration

We're happy you could join us today to see more of our talented Design Team's work.  Today's Designer's all chose to create scrapbook layouts for their interpretation of our sketch.  However, this doesn't mean that you have to create a scrapbook layout as well, feel free to create any paper project your heart desires that our sketch inspires you to create!

Don't forget that you have until Saturday at noon to enter your project using In Linkz.  After 12 noon, the voting for the People's Choice Award for Challenge 3 begins... so don't forget to come back between Saturday and Tuesday to cast your vote!

Tomorrow we'll have some more inspiring Design Team creations for you to see and until then, get crafting!


Christy captured the excitement of her son's trip to the zoo in her layout for Challenge #3. He is an absolute animal nut and at 2 years old his excitement for life is captivating! She flipped the sketch left to right and used bright papers to capture the memories. The white matting behind her pictures just makes them pop!


Regan used the sketch challenge to create a 12X12 layout. To add dimension to the sketch's blocked effect she used 2 sets of mats for her photos and one smaller mat in a different color for her embellishments. She used heat embossing and dimensional embellishments to add texture and interest to the layout. For more information on this layout please visit her blog.


Catherine took this sketch and and switched a few things about the sketch, mainly the title. She really enjoyed working on this project, and creating different embellishments for the squares without photos. Check out her blog for all details, the paper she used is one of the new My Mind's Eye collections!


Dawn used recent photos, that could be trimmed into smaller portions to make this eye-appealing layout. She chose photos that had various focal points, to keep with one theme and show all of the details of the day. It was made to fit in an 8X8 scrapbook, or layered (as shown here with a green mat) to fit in a 12X12 book.
