Our Guest Designer This Week

Catherine Pooler

Senior Design Team

Tracy chose to use the fourth member of her family as the subject for her take on the sketch challenge for this week Stamping, cut work, embossing, and die cuts are only a few of the elements she used on this layout. You can see a complete list of materials on Tracy's blog.

Regan had a lot of fun trying her first shaped layout! She flipped the sketch for a different look and to accommodate the images on her papers. She added some felt flowers to mimic the flowers on the costume. Just look at those adorable photos! For more photos and details along with a complete supply list, please visit her blog Emora Designs.

Design Team

C decided to switch things up this time with the sketch and instead of a scrapbook layout she created a sweet little Mother's Day card for her mother-in-law Ginny. She used her Spellbinder circle die to create the base and pulled out some fun scraps and one of her old Sizzix Texturz plate. The flower-fall of roses just looked so fun that they had to be added to the card too. To see more details and photos about how this card was made go on over to Trade Fish Designs.

Jennifer took this week's layout sketch and created this round card highlighting three elements (bow, tag, and heart) instead of three photos! This smaller card can be used as-is or as an extra large gift tag. Head over to her blog to see more!

Angi made a Spring Card full of cuteness using this week's sketch. The design is Clean & Simple so that the tree, birdhouse, and birdie are the main focal point. Instead of using photos she used 3 Puffy Felt Embellies. She also made a paperclip flower embellishment and clipped it to the sentiment. To see more of this fun card please be sure to visit her blog Cokie Pop Paper Boutique.

Kim created a layout using photos of her children during a day at the beach. Kim decided that a square shaped layout fit her style better, although she followed the sketch with her embellishments and design. The black and white photos are a nice match for her choice of papers! For more photos and a list of supplies, be sure to visit her blog at Paper Loves Glue.

Link up your submission between now and Sunday 9pm (Eastern US) to be eligible for our prizes ! Tomorrow Regan will have a tutorial for us, and Beth will host our Executive Reveal on Friday. See you then !!
