Hello, everyone! Happy Easter to you! I hope that you are having a good holiday weekend.
Before we get to the new challenge we have a new design team member that we would like to introduce. We are so pleased to have Deanna Deaton join the design team! Deanna plays along with our challenges regularly and I am sure you will be inspired by her beautiful creations. Here is a little about Deanna:
Hey everyone! I'm honored and thrilled to join this creative team of ladies here at Lasting Memories! I'm always inspired with their challenges each week. I'm Nana to 9 wonderful grandkids who really keep me busy scrapping their activities and special moments. I also enjoy walking, biking, reading, and traveling.
Be sure to stop by her blog - Moments To Cherish - and say hello!
Now on to the challenge - it's the start of a brand new month and that means we have a new theme for the month and a new set of challenges. For April, Lauren is hosting our challenges and the theme is "All About Paper". The challenge for this week is:
LM #389 - Try a new paper technique on your layout (paper weaving, paper folding, quilling, paper lollies, rolled paper flowers, paper fringe etc.)
We would also like to give a warm welcome to our April Guest Designer - Ashley.
Hi! I'm Ashley, a thirty-something dog mom from Indiana. I've been a registered nurse for 10 years and in my spare time I like to read, run, and scrapbook. I'm engaged to a great guy, but we haven't set a date yet. I love to travel, usually to a beach, and that always gives me great topics for scrapbook pages! You can see more of my work on my blog: https://marklandandmain.blogspot.com/.
Now, here's a look at what the design team has created for this challenge - starting with our guest designer:
For my new technique, I tried hand stitching on paper for the first time.
I created my layout using the paper weaving technique.
I decided to create my own sunburst paper using a variety of holiday papers.
I tried a quilting folding technique I've been wanting to try with this adorable double-sided summer paper!
Wow - such amazing work from the design team! What new technique will you try this week? We would love to see what you create!
Be sure to link up your projects by Saturday, April 28th for your chance to win a $15 gift certificate to any online store.
We hope you find some time this month to play along with us. Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great day!
