My Sketch World

See what I mean about a great September. My Sketch World has also asked me to be a guest designer for the month of September. Such a talented group of ladies over there, I am awestuck by the creations. My Sketch World also has great galleries and forums, lots of great ideas and tips on there. Look for my Daily 'Creative Dose' to give you inspiration and I will also be shelling out '{Blog Love}'in the forum and great place to focus on someones blog for that week. Now my September did NOT get off's only the 2nd too. My big open house that I scheduled turned out to be a bust. NO ONE showed. Bummer. I guess it was the wrong night? Oh Well, maybe next time.

Scrapping Out LOUD!

What a great month September is going to be! Scrapping Out LOUD! has asked me to be thier Guest Designer for the week of September 1, with a great challenge: Scrap out of Season! We all buy products for the time of year, and then have to store them away for a whole 50 weeks until they are allowed out again! So why not experiment and use seasonal products unconventionally? Snowflakes could be spring flower centres, halloween spiders on a summer page....Those products will never get used up otherwise! Think outside of the seasonal box! I love to do layouts that require me to think about materials in a different way. As you see above my chipboard snowflakes have been turned into summer flowers. With an abundance of stitching and a cute picture of my daughter I love the way this layout turned out. Why don't you head over to Scrapping Out LOUD! and play along with us.
