LM #627 - 2022 Favorite Challenges - Love Your Stash

Hello, everyone! Welcome back to Lasting Memories - we are so happy that you have stopped by today! I can't believe that it is already time for our last theme and our last set of challenges for 2022. This year has gone by fast! Let's get to it.

For December we will be revisiting some of our favorite Lasting Memories challenges from 2022 - according to how many played along with us each month - and our challenges will be based on those themes. The month of March saw the most entries, so our first challenge of December will be from our "Love Your Stash" challenges.

LM #627 - Love Your Stash (March 2022) - Create a layout and use 3 or more patterned papers, stickers (this can be any sticker - puffy, chipboard, or cardstock stickers), trim (washi tape, ribbon, twine, etc.), punches/die-cuts/ephemera, and finishing touches (enamel dots, brads, sequins, bling, splatters, etc.)

Introducing December's Guest Designer!

Hello, hello! Happy Saturday to you! I hope all of you that are in the States had a very Happy Thanksgiving and were able to spend time with your family and friends. 

Today we are thrilled to introduce our guest designer for December. The oh-so-talented Jill R will be joining us all month long and sharing her beautiful work with us. Here is a little bit about Jill:


I live in Somerset, Pennsylvania with my husband, our 23-year-old daughter, 14-year-old son, and my little grandson. I am a high school teacher and use scrapbooking as my creative outlet. I have been crafting since I was a child, but in 2003 I fell in love with scrapbooking, and it has become my favorite hobby. Of course, my family photos are always my inspiration for my layouts. In 2010 I started a blog and love participating in all the fun challenges! Thank you Lasting Memories for having me as Guest Designer this month. It is a big honor for me!

You can see more of Jill's beautiful work on her blog - Just Jill.

Our November challenges end tonight at 6 PM EST so be sure to get your layouts linked up! Check back tomorrow when we reveal our last theme for 2022 and our first challenge of the month!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great day!

LM #623 - All About Sketches - Double Page Sketch

 Hello, everyone! Welcome back to Lasting Memories - we are so happy that you stopped by today! We are just days away from the first of November and that means we have a new theme and a new set of challenges all ready to go!

DT member Lori K. has picked our theme for November and it is a favorite around here - sketches! Here is what she has to say about it - I find sketch challenges to be very difficult, but once I have completed the sketch I love the page and I love how it gets me out of my comfort zone. 

Here is our first sketch challenge of the month - a double-page sketch from Allison Davis for Scrapbook Generation:



Feel free to just use one side of the sketch if you don't want to make a double-page layout.

Here are the beautiful layouts from the design team:




(I scrapped the right side of the sketch.)




Such lovely layouts from the design team! Now it's your turn - link up your layouts to the linky below by Saturday, November 26th at 6 PM Eastern Time for a chance to be our guest designer for an upcoming month.

I owe you Top 3's and Guest Design Team picks from August, September, and now October. They will be posted by the end of the week.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! We can't wait to see your beautiful creations!
