The challenge continues

Today I'll share two more pages of some sweet members that we asked to participate.
We want to say THANK YOU!! again...we gave them such short notice!!

FIrst up is Scrapally.
Here is her layout, Remember:




Isn't it so sweet?
I just love her stamping,
and of course I love that sweet lacy, stitched border.
Here is what Ally had to say about the process:


First of all, had I read the list of items a little more carefully, I might not have said YES! Ok, I kid, but did you notice that this list does NOT include any type of lettering? Once I realized there were no letter stickers as an option, I was a little stumped. Thankfully, I do have the SC stamp set with the "Remember this Moment" stamp. I already knew that I wanted to use the dotted border to create a frame around my layout, so it was natural to use the title from the set too.

I used a ruler to pencil in a line for the frame and I used a strip of scrap cardstock as a mask when I got to the end of a side and had more stamp than I needed. Once I finished the frame, the layout went together easily from there. I used the double sided Sass paper from the Iconic SC kit behind the photo and then punched a piece with my scallop punch and stamped the title on the backside of the paper.

The final touch was the lace ribbon trim at the bottom of the patterned paper, a few cross stitches, a photo on some pop dots and voila! Finished layout! Thanks for the challenge ladies! This was fun!




Next up is the wonderful vtpuggirl.
Here is what Danielle sent us:




I adore this layout. She is the queen of simple perfection.

I love Ally's and Danielle's stamping! They used them as a really integral part of the design, hmmm, must think on how to do this. Love how they both turned out!
