JULY Design Team Reveal

We had an awesome challenge for our Design Team reveal this month. Cathy sent us each a group of products in our kit.... we all received exactly the same stuff to make a layout with. 5 scrapbookers, 5 items. Then to add another twist, we had to make our page using an awesome sketch by our very own Debbie Gaydos. So, here are the products that we got to use.

3 pieces of American Crafts AMPLIFIED patterned papers. All were double sided and just gorgeous!
Synthpop
GoGo (this paper was so pretty and pre-scalloped)
Boom Box (embossed... yummy)
A big pink Bazzill flower.
One super big black Bazzill brad.
A fun yellow bling arrow by Glitz.
And black loopy lou letter stickers by Doodlebug.

We were also allowed to add a few items from our stash. Just a few... and the girls did really well with this... BUT I was a huge cheater pants, using quite a few things from my stash. (Don't tell them though, hopefully they won't notice!)

So you want to see the sketch?? It is so cool, and was so much fun to work with. We all used it in different ways; as is, upside down, mirror image, etc.



Here are our takes on the sketch, I always find it so interesting to see how DIFFERENT layouts can come up with the same items and a sketch too. Every single one of them is just awesome.

Thanks so much for checking out our Design Team reveal! (Kary's on vacation this month, so we will post hers when she gets back.) We hope you will be challenged to use the sketch (and maybe try to these awesome products)... to see what you can come up with!
