I used the Noel Mignon Lovely Day Kit (sold out) plus a sheet of Kraft cardstock and letter stickers from my stash to create this St. Paddy's Day page for the current Mix It Up Challenge. I love the way the green and yellow play off each other against the neutrals!
A mixed title is a really fun way to use up those random letter stickers hanging around in your stash! Give it a try and come play along with us at Mix It Up!
Well, yesterday officially marked the last day I was a BackPorch Memories designer. I reluctantly decided to step down after a year and a half, but I knew I was ready for a change. I LOVE it there, so it was a hard decision for me! Paula's kits are such a great value and put together so well! They are really fun to work with! I love the monthly stamp club and I have really grown to love all the gals I've become friends with there. But sometimes change is good. Sometimes you just need to do something different for the sake of doing something different.
I left on great terms, and just to show you all how much I love them and want to keep supporting them, I thought that I would have a little giveaway! :D
This is the stamp set for May . . . isn't it adorable?!!! They are flying out the door, but I managed to snag a set (okay, two sets . . . I had to get one for ME!) to giveaway here on my blog. So if you would like your name tossed into a drawing for this adorable stamp set, please leave a comment on this post by Midnight, Monday, May 4th (Mountain Time). I will post a winner on Tuesday. (And YES! all of you lurking friends and family are more than welcome to join in this giveaway! . . . Heck! It might even FORCE you to post and say "hi!" to me for once! ;) LOL!)
I also thought I would post some of the layouts I did for the crop that was just held at BackPorch Memories. I hope you made it over there! It was so much fun!
This one was for an Interior Inspiration Challenge. If you know me, you know I LOVE interior design. My challenge was to use this room (from Country Home Magazine, April 2008) as inspiration for a page. I just love the colors and patterns in this room and thought there were so many directions to take it! -- I also posted a sketch to get people started, but they didn't have to use it if they didn't want to. If you're curious, check out the gallery HERE to see all the different takes on this one! Super fun!
Another challenge I hosted was called the Feeling Edgy Challenge. All I wanted people to do was create a page really concentrating on dressing up their edges, whether it be through inking, distressing, stitching, punching, tearing, etc. You get the idea. Below is my sample using the April BPM Medley kit. HERE is the gallery for that one if you are curious at seeing the takes for this challenge.
Thank you again BackPorch Memories for a wonderful experience on your design team! I'll definitely be stopping in to see how you are all doing! Best wishes and big hugs!!!
