August Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone! Heather here to challenge you today with a new sketch, made by yours truly - ME! I just love working with sketches because well sometimes you just need a starting point. You can choose to do the sketch literally as it's shown or just as a jumping off point for inspiration. So without further ado, here's my sketch challenge for you as well as my layout, which the sketch is based off of.

I used Crate Paper Little Bo Peep, which can be found in the Memorable Seasons store. They also have Little Boy Blue for all the little men in your life.  Make sure to check out the gallery as well for inspiration on how to use this collection for non baby layouts!

I hope you'll play along with this challenge.  Additional details, like deadlines, the prize that's up for grabs and more can be found on The Forum.

xoxo Heather

Stretch Your Supplies - Use those scraps!

Hello scrappers! Liz here to share a fun way to use your scraps. As you may know, here at Memorable Seasons, we just wrapped up our annual Members Challenge Us crop. The crop was a huge success. We got so many great layouts done and played some really fun games.
But now what? If you're like me, you have quite a few scraps left over. So let's use them!

After creating with my August kit which consisted of the October Afternoon Cake Walk collection, I seemed to have quite a few strips of paper left over. I decided to use those strips for making a layout with long banners (which are very popular right now).

The smaller left over scraps worked great for cutting out die cut flowers.
My challenge for you this week is to use those scraps! Check out the challenge post HERE for more details.

Have a great weekend!!

Reveal days and a new challenge is up

Hey there--Tami here with you today.

It's been an eventful week here at MS--we crowned our LSS winner-congrats Linda!  Also its that time for the DT to reveal the goodies we have been working with for this month.  Me well I got lucky enuff to receive the new fabulours Little Boy Blue line from Crate Paper

Look how stinkin cute this stuff is
Oh my goodness I have been hoarding my childrens baby pictures waiting for the perfect line to come out so I can scrap them.  And finally it has arrived.  But wait there is only one problem----It is soo dang versatile and not just for babies that I got totally distracted and have pulled some other pictures to scrap with it too-UGH! I am never gonna get those baby pictures scrapped-HELLO they are 15 and 11 yrs old!  But thats good news for you if you arent still overloaded with baby pictures.  See take a look at this one

And here's one of my teenager and my nephew--this one was mixed with the old Crate Paper Christmas line called Northpole-Gosh I love mixing paper lines up

See anyone can use this stuff for any occasion.

Also this week its my turn to issue a challenge over on the message boards.  Well I received a bunch of buttons in my dt kit this month and was inspired by them.  So I made a heart outta buttons-eazy peezy right?  Its up there in the top layout about my babies.   So I know if I can do that so can you-why dont you come on over to the boards and join our fun--you know you can win a prize for playing along right?

C-ya there.
