LM #394 - Variety Of Shapes - Hearts

Hello, everyone! Are you recovering from National Scrapbook Day today? I know I have a lot on my to-do list still to do!

We have a new challenge for you today, but before we get to that I want to introduce our second guest designer of May - Rachelle:


Hi there! Rachelle here from Ohio in the USA. Designing is my love to inspire others and to promote the challenges for maximum crafter participation.

I am a mother of 2 grown sons and grandmother to 2 beautiful grandchildren. I taught 6th grade for 7 years. I started scrapbooking in 2008 when I viewed a friend's work. My passion quickly turned into an addiction for this type of artistry and I never looked back. Now that I am disabled and wheelchair bound, scrapbooking/crafting is such a wonderful therapy that I love.  It's not just about creating albums but it is a work of art. I love taking pictures to use to document life. Thus, here I am today enjoying each day filled with being inspired, creating, providing inspiration through my work and treasuring the memories.

I am so addicted to the art of scrapbooking and paper crafting.  My skills have expanded since 2009 for creating cards, layouts, tags, altered artwork, planners, mixed media, wood, chipboard, and canvas artwork. I love using a variety of techniques, elegant and shabby chic elements. My style has been described as detailed, beautiful, and multifaceted. My greatest strength is attention to detail. I easily adapt my style depending on the type of project.  You will see a mixture of styles while looking through my gallery. I like to take the viewer on a visual journey of my designs.

Now on to this week's challenge. Our theme for this month is "Variety of Shapes" and this week we are working with hearts.

LM #394 - Use one or more hearts on your layout

Here's a look at what the design team has created, starting with the beautiful creations from our guest designers:

LM #393 - Variety of Shapes - Stars

Hello, hello! Happy Sunday! I hope that you are having a good weekend. We are finally starting to see some springlike weather here in the middle of the US and I am loving it!

It's (almost) the start of a new month and that means it's time for a new theme and a new set of challenges. Before we get to that, I want to introduce our guest designers for May, Leslie and Rachelle. Rachelle's full introduction will be next week with her first layout reveal, but here is a little about Leslie:


Heya!  I'm Leslie!  I'm a speech language pathologist who has lived in the great city of Philadelphia for close to 15 years.  I would be remiss if I failed to mention that I am a native Texan!  I started scrapbooking in 2006, but I took a hiatus from crafting after a fire destroyed all of my scrapbooks and my supplies two years ago.  I lost all of my belongings, but the only thing that mattered to me were those scrapbooks (I still get upset thinking about it!  But before you start to feel sorry for me, remember that every cloud has a silver lining.  I'm a newlywed, and I met my husband because of the fire (he lived in my building and also lost all of his things). It's actually quite romantic. My wedding this past December was the push I needed to get back into this hobby.  I'm so happy to be back, and I'm happy to be a Guest DT member at Lasting Memories this month!

Now, onto this month's theme. Our theme and challenges this month are courtesy of DT Denise. The theme is - Variety of Shapes - and our first challenge is:

LM #393 - use one or more stars on your layout.

Here's a look at what the design team has created starting with our guest designer, Leslie:

LM #392 - All About Paper - Use Only 6x6 Papers

Hello, scrappy friends! Happy Sunday to you!

First of all, we want to say a big thank you to Ashley and Anna for being our guest designers this month. I have really enjoyed seeing their beautiful creations each week!

We hope that you have enjoyed our "All About Paper" theme this month. Are you ready for today's challenge? Here we go:

LM #392 - Use only 6x6 paper pads (background paper may still be 12x12, but everything else should be 6x6) 

Now don't worry if you don't have 6x6 paper pads - you can cut down papers/scraps to 6x6 and go from there.

Here's a look at what the design team has created, starting with our guest designers:








Lori

We can't wait to see what you create using 6x6 papers only! Be sure to link up by Saturday, April 28th for your chance to win a $15 gift certificate to an online shop!

LM #391 - All About Paper - Use At Least 4 Different Patterned Papers

Hello, hello! Happy Sunday to you! I hope you are having a good weekend.

We are back today with our third challenge of the month. This month's theme is "All About Paper" and this week our challenge is:

LM #391 - Use at least 4 different patterned papers on your layout.

Before we get to the beautiful samples from the design team, we have another guest designer to welcome this week. Please help us welcome Anna as our second guest designer for April.


Hi, My names Anna and live in the Tampa Bay area near the sunny beaches of Pinellas County, Florida!! I have 1 daughter just turning 12 this month and she is the main subject of ALL of my layouts!! She's the reason I started scrapping in 2006. Although I am 5 years behind, I WILL CATCH UP!! One day hopefully!!
I love to go to the beaches, camping, and Kenny Chesney!! I'm a country girl at heart, grew up in a small town in mid-Illinois. Nothing but corn fields for the most part...and the 1st chance I got...moved to Florida. I've been down here close to 25 years now. Enjoy it very much but when the daughter goes to college, I just might venture out near the Carolinas or Tennessee!!

Be sure to check out more of Anna's work on her blog - Love This Girl.

Now, here's a look at the beautiful layouts for this week's challenge starting with our guest designers:
