why didn't i think of that?!

i don't know about you...but every month when the DT Gallery is revealed, i constantly look at what everyone has done and think to myself, 'why didn't i think of that?!'

am i the only one??

a few examples of cool thngs that everyone did this month that may be a bit outside your box:

that Davinie...always coming up with a cool way to feature her stitching. and Caroline with the silver ink and the Nadiya stunning is that, while also subtle?

April, can i step inside your brain for a bit?? using the alphabet stickers to mask with??!! brilliant, my dear.

Kelly, you sneaky fox...making what looks like your very own patterned paper with that awesome border stamp and some glitter.

Jenn, this countdown calendar just makes me smile...

love the rub-on on top of that sheer flower Joy...very cool.

Janine, you mini book diva...a girl after my own heart!! LOVE this idea!!

and look at Emily...folding paper like a maniac. VERY cool effect!

Kirsty, you're killing me. between the title on the cutout paper and the freehand glittering, i'm not sure which makes me giddier!!

Nic, the punched out dots may be subtle, but WOW...another awesome idea to accent that paper!!

now Stephanie, you know i always like your title work...look how you placed that vintage card onto the sheer thingy and THEN added the tiny silver letters atop the chipboard ones!! brilliant!

Scarlet, that houndstooth paper behind the sheer embellishment just adds the perfect touch, doesn't it?

and look at how Tina used the chipboard flower pieces to 'frame' this little cutie patootie...

so to my fellow DT girls...hats off to you.
you never fail to help others step outside the box and do a double take.

Angela W said...

Love them all! Yes, I think that when I see other people's layouts and ideas!

Oh - I can't agree with this post more - one that really stood out for me too was when Stephanie only punched out a few of the holes on that die cut paper. That effect was stunning!

I agree with everything you said Nicole, and I must say I am TOTALLY amazed & inspired every month over at SC.

nic, you picked out a coupla my favvos too. I always think I turn in a good kit but then when I see the rest of the DT stuff, well - I feel ashamed at times!
