Inspired by .. with Alz

Morning peoples!

I'm here with two layouts to share today. One was inspired by a challenge and the other by our one and only Karyn Schultz!

Up first is the layout I created for the December challenge at Show Us Your Stuff. The challenge required the use of the word "joy" (its in my journaling) and a handmade embellishment which, let's face it, is pretty simple if you're a D-lish Scraps devotee!!

Look at this

Yep LOL, that's a double with multiple photos and no mixed media! Gasp!!! LOL! With the plethora of fun and funky embellishments in store though, not all my layouts need to be complicated or require much other than the photos and 'some' embellishing.

Amongst that "plethora of fun and funky embellishments in store" I've used .. Freckled Fawn Wood Chips (Hearts), Freckled Fawn Paper Clips (Arrows), Paper Flowers (Bitty Blooms), Washi TapeCotton Twine, a Flair ButtonResin Flowers (Forget Me Nots), Paper Doilies, clear Motex Tape, and Journal Its by Star (Saying Tickets White, Round & Rounds Brights, and Mixed Ticket Tabs).

My next layout was inspired by our very own Karyn Schultz and her Christmas layout which was featured on the D-lish Scraps blog HERE. I was completely taken by the volume of white space on Karyn's layout combined with the amount of layering and embellishing she had done. Her general layout design, the ink splatters and a border of sorts, clearly also drew me in.

Life is good

On this layout I've used .. Skipping 5 Puffy Things (Woodgrain Hearts), Paper Flowers (Bitty Blooms), red and black Motex TapePaper Doilies (including 5.5" Red Polka Dot), Freckled Fawn Wood Chips (Hearts and Arrows), Freckled Fawn Paper Clips (Arrows), Washi Tape, a Flair ButtonCotton Twine, a small Vellum Bag, and Journal Its by Star (Round & Rounds Brights, Saying Tickets White, Bubble Words, Ho Ho Ho Strips White).

Thanks for the inspiration Karyn!! See you all again tomorrow.   :)
