Our Guest Designers Just Keep Coming!

We have a second guest designer for you to meet this month at Memorable Seasons.  Her name is Dria and she is our technique guru!  If it involves paint, chalk, modeling paste, glitter, or a host of other delightfully messy supplies, then you know Dria will be in the middle of it all!  It's always a surprise to see what she comes up with.

Busy wife and mom to three active older kids, Dria can usually be found in one of three locations:  at home, in Nashville, or Disneyworld - her three favorite places in all the world. Yet she always  manages to find the time to spend in her scraproom, creating something new, like this lovely page she designed using her April design team kit "Flourish" by Authentique.  Find it in the store here.

Check out the particulars of her technique challenge here.  You just might learn something new!

Take Time for a Title

Today we've got another challenge from our guest designer Louise.  Using her April kit, "Worldwide" by Bazzill (find it here in the store), she created this layout about her visit to Frankfurt, Germany.  Isn't this a pretty page?  It's titled "Adventure Awaits."

Louise is challenging everyone to create a title using the die-cuts and stickers that come with a collection.  Almost every collection contains something that can be used for this purpose, and it's a great way to add some variety to your layouts.

So, dig out those accessories that come with your collections and get creative with your titles!

We're Having Company!

Hello, everybody!  Susan here.  This month we are featuring the work of three guest design team members and we're just as excited as can be!  There's nothing like some fresh ideas to stir things up!

First, I'd like to tell you a little bit about our first guest designer.  Her name is Louise and she's been a long-time participant at Memorable Seasons.  When I think of Louise, two words immediately come to mind:  travel and soccer!  She's mom to two very active boys who play on multiple soccer teams.  Louise gives a whole new meaning to the term "soccer mom"!  Additionally, Louise's family just adores traveling and they have been all over the world.  So, it's no wonder that she chose to work with Bazzill's new collection titled "Worldwide"  Here's a sample of some of the papers in that collection:

And here's a beautiful layout that Louise made using this collection about her recent trip to Denmark.

It's A Charmed Life!

Hello all! Megan here today. I was "lucky" and "charmed" enough to get the chance to work with Simple Stories A Charmed Life this month. This collection is just...happy and screams spring...if it ever comes. I love the blue, green and yellow color combo and all the embellies are so fun - lots of stars, hearts, flowers and clovers. And the sentiment stickers are awesome - I see them getting used a lot on future Project Life pages!

You can find this collection HERE in the Memorable Seasons store!!

Here's the front sides of the papers I received...

And the backsides...

And here is the cardstock and embellies...

And some extras I picked up...
(You can find the Jenni Bowlin tapes right here in the store.)

And here is what I created with this fabulous collection...

I also issued a couple challenges based on the above layouts. They aren't due until April 30th so head on over to the Memorable Seasons challenge forum to check them out, along with some other fun challenges, for a chance to win a prize!

Spring is Here!

Hello, everyone.  Susan here. It may not feel like spring across the entire country, but here at Memorable Seasons we've got lots of sunshine and blooming flowers in the new collections that are arriving in the store.  One such collection is Basic Grey's "Fresh Cut" - a gorgeous array of contemporary and traditional florals, geometric patterns, and water color effects.  It's available in the Memorable Seasons store here.

Using this lovely collection, I created a new challenge for you.Check it out in the weekly challenge forum here.  Here's the page I made for the challenge.  Thanks for taking a look!

Happy creating!
