We have some absolutely beautiful scrapbook projects for you to see today!

This month, designer Kim challenged the design team to use this picture on a layout.


And, we are challenging YOU to figure out which designer made each layout! 
Here is a link to the contest: 
And, here is a collage of all of our layouts:
Can you guess which one is mine? 

Here are my other projects I have made with the Beloved kit so far:

"Lil Miss Sunshine" Layout

(Based on the November Sketch)


I kept pretty close to the sketch, which was a big challenge for me. :) 
The circles on the sketch has scallops, so I decided to take out my border punches and make strips to add to them. I learned this trick years ago from Ms. Jan. 

I colored the chipboard by dragging a distress ink pad over it. I added some yellow pearls that came in the kit. I wanted to add more circles to the design, so I used a circle stencil in two of the corners with embossing paste, then I used the brown mist from the project kit to add more circles by taking off the sprayer and dotting the paper within the space I used the stencil.


I used a Memory Box butterfly die.
For my title, I used the alphas from the main kit and the Thickers from the embellishment add on. They were quite subtle, so I opted to trace the Thickers with a white pen. I added one of the burlap bows to dot the "I."


Love Always Wall Decor

This is my project I made with the project add on this month. I LOVE this Kaisercraft wall decor, and it was serendipitous to get it in a kit because during my move, my shadowbox that I had made using this picture of my grandparents got crushed. I was able to save the picture though. 

Here are some closeups. 










You can see exactly how I created this altered project in my video tutorial:
