For this layout I used my three favourite techniques:
1. misting (as a photo background; I used a round mask here)
3. layering: I almost hear the foldies, sweet treat stickers, in stitch blossoms, chipboard stickers and paper whimsies calling me to pile them creating fabulous dimensions on layouts :D
you all raved about the last box sale... some begged for another.... others pleaded. we love making you happy! so here you have it....
if you have ordered a surprise box in the past you know they are PACKED with goodness! this one is no exception. these boxes go fast so hurry and place your order!
when will my order process?
please allow 3-4 days for your order to process. the shipping time depends on where you live. most domestic location orders arrive in under 7 business days.
are there repeats from past box sales?
yes there are... lucky for you... never too much of a good thing! you will also find some new goodies in this box that have never been included in previous sales.
may i purchase multiple boxes?
absolutely. the boxes are identical, so you will receive duplicates. but again... never too much of a good thing.
if you have any other questions please feel free to email us at email@example.com
Hi! this is Kyoko. I'm living in Japan and there are 13 hours (or 14 hours)
between Japan and New York.
It's Michelle here with a summer-inspired color challenge for you, today! :)
When I'm looking for inspiration - or, perhaps, not even looking intentionally for it - it always seems to jump out at me, anyway. I'm always skimming magazines and noting color combinations or ooh-ing and aah-ing over a beautifully designed lookbook or website.
I peeked at Anthropologie and Ruche's lookbooks last week to get inspired for summer, and it struck me just how well these beautiful photos, sets, and outfits opitimize summer. The colors, the design - it's all there, already coordinated for you on a page - simply pull a few colors from the photos that call out to you, note the lines to use in your design, and you have an instant page idea!
Here are the images that inspired my summer-full page:
And here's the challenge page I made, with those in mind:
I was mostly inspired by the lovely muted-but-bright pops of color and the vintage feel of the photos, and my idea went really well with this summer photo I took last year and some Sunshine Broadcast (which was perfect!).
I challenge you to be inspired by the images/colors/design lines gathered above - add some ethereal beauty to your next page! I can't wait to see what you make!
Hello everyone! Hope you're enjoying our challenges for you this week!
I'll be the first to admit that it's hard for me to think outside the box. I usually start scrapbooking and glue stuff down. Then before I know it my page is done and I didn't try something new! So today I want to challenge you to use letter stickers for something other than a title. Try using them more as a design element than an actual header.
For my page I decided to run written numbers across the bottom of my page. (I was super lucky that they fit perfectly). I highlighted my daughter's age by using a different color of alpha for "eleven".
Here are some close-ups:
Be sure to link your layouts back here to this post... and come back tomorrow for another challenge from Kimberly.
Hi everyone and welcome to todays CHA Week Challenge! Today, I am going to focus on journaling.
It is the "who, what, where, & when" of a scrapbook page that is just as important as that beautiful photo you are focusing on.
Remember that years from now your loved ones will cherish seeing those photos, but they would also love to know who is in them. Or simply where the photo was taken.
With that, my challenge to you is to creat a layout that focuses on journaling.
Go ahead, write it down...every wonderful detail!
In my example, I knew I wanted the journaling to tell how we were flying over Chicago on our way home from Jamaica. Something no one would know unless I recorded that information.
I can't wait to see what you all come up with for this challenge!
Happy journaling everyone!
Speaking of which, I did a layout using Sunshine Broadcast of my oldest and her boyfriend. I just spent the weekend with her, and it's such an exciting time in her life. Oh, to be young again. LOL!
So what's the excitement here at Sassafras? Challenges, of course. Since some of us won't be at CHA, we decided to celebrate in our own little way. Here is the schedule:
Tuesday 19th- Megan
Wed 20th- Marcy
Thursday 21st- Kimberly
Fri 22nd- Michelle
These will all be posted here as well as on their blogs. There are prizes involved for playing along, and all entries will need to be completed by Monday, July 25 at 9:00 p.m. EST.
Each challenge will be posted at 8:00 a.m. EST. Join us tomorrow for the fun!
Next week we have some fun challenges planned while others are away at CHA. you don't want to miss the inspiration from the team. Or the prizes! Tune in on Tuesday for your first challenge.
Also thanks for all of the sketch sites. Sassafras blog readers are the best!
