LM #355 - On The Farm

Hello, scrappy friends! Happy Sunday to you! We have gotten a break from the extreme heat this weekend and are enjoying low 80's, low humidity, and lots of sunshine! Perfect weather I would say!

Since it is (almost) a new month we have a new theme and a new set of challenges starting today. DT Lauren is providing our challenges this month and they are really going to be fun!

Our theme for August is - All About Animals - and our first challenge to you is:

LM #355 - On The Farm - include a farm animal (cow, horse, pig, chicken, sheep, etc.) on your layout. This can be in the photos, patterned paper,  or the stickers/embellishments.

We enjoyed having Denise as our GDT last month and so we asked if she would be interested in hanging around for this month, too. Thankfully she said yes, so you will be seeing more of Denise's beautiful this month!
Here are the beautiful layouts from the design team, starting with GDT Denise:

LM #354 - Go On A Scrappy Adventure

Hello, scrappy friends! Happy Sunday to you! I hope you are having a good weekend and are able to stay cool if you are experiencing the heat like we are! Yesterday we hit 100* - the first time for us this summer. I'm ready for a little bit of a cool down!

We have our fourth and final challenge of July for you today. Our theme for this month has been - Summer Adventures - and this week our challenge is:

LM #354 - Go On A Scrappy Adventure - document a layout in a size that you don't normally scrap.


Show us your mini albums, travelers notebook, custom pocket page, etc. Do you normally scrap 12x12? Then why not try an 8x8 or an 8.5 x11? Give that new size a try and you just might decide that you like it!


First of all, we would like to thank Denise for being our Guest Designer in July! We have really enjoyed her beautiful layouts this month! She has also agreed to be our Guest Designer for August so you will be seeing more of her beautiful work next month, as well!

Here is what the design team has come up with for this challenge, starting with GDT - Denise.

Denise scrapped an 8x8 layout

I created a mini album.

I created this 6x8 pocket page with 2x2 squares. I have not done many of these, but I'm really loving it! I am even considering a new 100 day project possibly incorporating this size. 2x2 pockets are wonderful for sparkly shakers!

I have created a 6x8 layout for my granddaughter's 6x8 album.

Beautiful projects once again from our talented design team! Now it's your turn - be sure to link up by July 28!

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you find time to create with us this week!

LM #351 - Summer Adventures - Outdoor Adventures

Hello, everyone! Happy Sunday to you! Where in the world did June go to?! It seems to have gone by in the blink of an eye for me! It is the 4th of July holiday weekend here in the US and it has been a busy one, and that is why I am running behind getting this post up!

It's a new month and that means we have a new theme and a new set of challenges for you today. DT Natalie is providing our challenges for us in July and I think you are going to like them! Our July theme is "Summer Adventures" and our first challenge is:

LM #351 - "Outdoor Adventures" - Document an outdoor adventure OR you may use outdoor adventure themes in your layout (think tents, stars, mountains, road/road signs, water sports, bike gear, etc)

First up, please help me welcome our July GDT - Denise 


Hello , I’m Denise from Germany. I have been a scrapbooker since I got my first camera when I was sixteen. I decorated my albums long time before I ever heard the word “scrapbooking”. Ten years ago, I was infected with all the possibilities of die cutters, papers, stamps and embellishments. Last year, I started with mixed media and up to now, I like this style: a little bit neat, a little bit messy.

Denise creates beautiful layouts and I am sure she is going to inspire you with her work all month long. Be sure to stop by Denise's blog - Scrapbooking and More - to see more of her beautiful work.





Wow! Such beautiful layouts from our design team!

I will be back tomorrow with our Top picks for June and our winner of the $20 gift certificate, so stay tuned!
