For stash items, I used patterned paper, letter stickers, die cut (number 3), chipboard shapes (heart and stars), a tag, an arrow paper clip and baker's twine."

I'm so thankful for my parents. Who were always there for me and supporting me in everything I've done. I miss them a lot and think about them all the time. So, this layout is about them.
And my five stash items are: patterned paper, washi tapes, twine, paper clip and buttons.
I couldn't explain why I've chosen these stash items. I just love them and these are the most useful items for me to scrap."

"My Heart is Full x 2" by DT Kate

How's everyone doing today? :) 

Today's inspiration is from DT Kate.  Here's her gorgeous layout she created for the
November Sketch Challenge:
Here's what Kate said about her layout:
"My young niece (pictured) lost her mother last year and I think about her all the time. But, since she lives in another state with her dad, I don't get to see her. BUT, I got to go on an unexcpected road trip to KY in August and she got to stay with me for 2 days! I was THANKFUL for all the things we crammed into those 2 days; she is a joy and such a wonderful kid! My heart was bursting with joy!!!

My 5 supplies that are always my go to's are:
1. Patterned Paper (My name is Kate and I am a PAPER addict)
2. Gold accents (again, I need a 12 step program)
3. Enamel dots (love all the colors and they just add a quick finishing touch to the page)
4. Paper flowers on PP (cause handcutting is my thing)
5. PL letterpress chipboard/cards (for their versatility)"

You still have a few days to upload your layout for this sketch challenge and the Nov. Stash challenge.  For more information click HERE. :)

"Spontaneous Adventure" LO by DT Claire

Happy Monday!

Today DT Claire is inspiring us with this lovely layout:
This is what Clair said about her layout:
"I love it when I'm working on a project and I can combine it with a challenge, such as with this layout. I am working on a new travel album about our spontaneous adventure to the Four Corners and came across this photo; which encompasses everything that I am "thankful for." I am thankful for my hubby and all our adventuring we have done over the years. This photo was taken on our way home when we made an unexpected detour to visit the Great Sand Dunes.

I also created this layout using all my favorite supplies. I LOVE my (1) mixed media supplies: watercolors, stencils, and textured paste. Then I added more favorite "go tos": (2) a flair badge, (3) some jute twine, (4) Thickers alpha stickers, and last but definitely not least, (5) enamel dots and wood veneers. All my "go tos" are to add texture, motion, and dimension to my layouts.
What are your favorite stash supplies? Lets us know when you upload your sketch+stash layout."

Here's the sketch:

"Gift of Love" by DT Nicole

Happy Saturday!!!

Today we have this lovely layout by DT Nicole to inspire us:

Here's what Nicole shares about her layout:

"Gift of Love" - What a beautiful sketch Rochelle Spears has designed for the sketch challenge this month! I love those strips of papers layered underneath the photo and the circle outline. I used a photo of me with 3 of my favorite people, my boyfriend Yves and our two nieces, Ella and Daphne. I am so thankful for all the joy, laughter and love that they bring to my life. As far as the stash challenged is concerned, I used the 5 products that I most often used in all my creating. 1. Stencils - I love to dabble in mixed media techniques and stencils are a must-have for any mixed media artist. I most often use mine with molding paste to add elegant and textured designs on my backgrounds. 2. Mists & Paints - After doing the stenciling, I add colour to my background using mists. Mists are also perfect to turn any embellishment into the perfect colour for your page. And anyone familiar with my work knows how much I love to dab white paint over my layouts to finish it off with a soft whitewash look. 3. Chipboard - I've been so blessed to be on the amazing 2Crafty Chipboard DT for more than a year now and I get loads of beautiful laser-cut chipboard to create with. 4. Flowers - My favorite style of scrapbooking is shabby chic so obviously, I love to use flowers, loads of them, of most of my creations. 5. Tags - Ever since I discovered tags, I can barely do one page without slipping one in some way, shape or form. Now, who and what are YOU thankful for?

Have a great Saturday and see you tomorrow! :)

I chose the 5 items that most use in my designs: patterned papers, flowers, leaves and twigs (just love), washi tape and chipboard."

"Thank You for Having You" by DT Dulcinea

Happy Monday!

Today's inspiration comes from our DT Dulcinea.  Here's her fabulous layout:  
This is what Dulcinea shares about her layout:
"I love this week sketch and challenge. I am so thankful for my friend and husband, so I just want to do a page about him. I have these two pictures of them with our kitty, Ulua. Really, I am thankful for my lovely cat as well, so I suppose it's a great page about “my family”. For the layout I most stick with the sketch, I did a large circle to be able to see the paper stars patterned and, since I am using two pictures and a large circle, I didn't add the strips on vertical. I preferred substitute for two small label on top. My five stash items was: patterned paper, letters, stickers, wood veneers and blings."

Have a fantastic day and see you back her tomorrow!

"Good Friends" LO by DT Steffanie

Hello Crafters!
Today we are inspiring you with this lovely layout by Steffanie:
This is what Stephanie said about her layout:

"What am I thankful for? This hobby and the wonderful friends I share it with! Several years ago, my friends and I decided we needed to get away to the beach for a whole weekend and just scrap. We had so much fun that it's now a bi-annual event. And, since our kids are getting older, the weekends are getting longer!  

Included on this layout are several items that I love:

wood veneer shapes---especially stars and cameras
washi tape---so fun and easy to use
Thickers---for fast ready-made titles
enamel dots---for that little pop of color and dimension
patterned paper---a girl can't live without it!"

Thank you to all who applied for the Design Team. We have a VERY difficult decision to make in the next few days and then we should be ready to announce our new team.

November Guest Designer
Sandra Scott

Here's Sandra's fabulous layout she created based on this challenge:

And here's what Sandra shared about her layout:

I’m so thankful to have this lady in my life not only as an auntie but as a friend to chat too as well.

My ‘go to’ things in my stash are patterned paper, stamps, ephemera (or collectables), stencils and inks.  My patterned papers are from Stampin’ Up! and 13 @rts, and I love that you can mix and match collections and it’s also a great way to use some of your stash.

I created the background using a stencil and ink mixed with texture paste followed by splatters of another brand of ink.  I just love a bit of mixed media on a layout and you can mix anything from ink to glitter with texture paste for a great effect.  I also love heat embossing and I used a script stamp on the light orange background paper before embossing it.
Thank you so much Sandra for being out November Guest Designer and sharing your fabulous creations with us! 

We are looking forward to seeing all of your wonderful entries inspired by this challenge!

See you again tomorrow with more fabulous inspiration!

"Note" Layout by DT Nicole

Hi there!
Check out the ADORABLE inspiration we have on the blog today, 
created by DT Nicole inspired by our 
Read what Nicole shared with us about the challenge and her layout:
"I decided to go masculine this month with my layout based on stash challenge #20. It seemed to go along with the theme also as most little boys love countdowns. The cutie on the picture is Tristan, my friend's son, when he was a baby, and my page design was inspired by a sketch from Creative Scrappers. Now let the countdown begin! 5 - All papers used are from an older Echo Park collection called 'Note to Self'. I actually used 7 different patterns - blue polkadot (background), stripes, red polkadot, numbers, beige grid paper, ivory lined, journaling card. 4 - I added many stickers to my page, 4 of which are the red arrow, the 'Love This' tab, the circle tag and all cork embellishments are stickers. 3 - There is a whole vertical row of numbers on the right edge. 2 - Because I didn't have any rub-ons that matched the layout, I decided to use 2 different star stamps. 1 - I added red strings of red paint on my background and on some embellishments and I finished off with my signature whitewashing style using a sponge and white acrylic paint."

Okay, we have given you eight days of  awesome "Courntdown" inspiration and by now we should have inspired you to pull out your supplies, and start your "Countdown!"
