Hello everyone, welcome back to LAYOUTS Week! That means a new set of colors! This one is a product challenge, and we are creating Layouts, Mini-Albums and Altered Projects only. The deadline is April 28, 11:59pm USA/EST.
Thank you for visiting us each and every week, we hope you can play along with us. Color is just one part of your design process. So it makes it very easy to combine this challenge with other challenges such as sketch or word challenges. Personally, I think combining more challenges the better, it's always such a thrill to push one's own creativity!
As a reminder, C'est Magnifique Kits is our LAYOUTS sponsor this month. I want to thank owner Leslie for donating a special prize package of C'est Magnifique goodies! If you want to whet your appetite and see her gorgeous selections, take a look at some past kits HERE.
And now to announce our winner for Challenge #223, it is.....
Sylvia van der Steen! Congratulations to her, her layout entry won the Guest Designer spot for today's Reveal!!
Sylvia van der Steen
|My name is Sylvia van der Steen, I am from the Netherlands, 51 years old, married to my DH for more than 28 years. We have 2 grown-up daughters. I have been creative for as long as I can remember, used to make clothing for my Barbie dolls when I was a little girl, did some knitting, cross stichting, sewing and crochetting, but I started scrapbooking some 6-7 years ago. I love this hobby, because it gives me the opportunity to play with papers in all possible ways. I guess you could describe my style as shabby chique, but I love vintage as well. I prefer scrapping at 12x12”, but sometimes do some mini’s, cards, tags and altered items. Fave colors are pastels like cream, brown, pink (in all shades), black & white. Most of the times you’ll find flowers, lace and distressing on my layouts.|
