Here's some wonderful layouts combining all 4 challenge created by our fabulous Design Team:

"I had so much fun combining these four challenges! The color combination was a struggle at first simply because I have very little pink in my stash. As I was going through my one and only Project Life collection, I found this oversized journal card that had most of the colors I needed and gave me some solid inspiration. I added some stitching in kraft under the title and also some kraft washi tape to the top and bottom of the page. This completed the color requirement. I used 4 different washi tapes for the stash challenge. The photo is me, of course, for the include YOU challenge. For the sketch, I was originally looking for a 3x4 journal card but found this larger one that grabbed my attention. I decided to make it work anyway. As a result, things shifted around a bit from the original sketch but the basic idea is still there. I hope you like it as much as I do!"

"Hi scrappers! I enjoyed creating this Combined layout because I love Simple Stories collection "I AM." I layered the back of the center photo then applied my fave chipboard clock. Then applied small pearls. I added ink stamping, enamel dots, and sequins on the background. The washi tapes are the polka dots at the top and gold script along the bottom. . Now it's your turn to created your layout. Can't wait to see your design. Happy Scrapping!"

 "This is such a fun challenge. I enjoyed so much making my layout by combining those four challenges. First I pulled out some patterned papers that match the colour challenge from „My Scrap And More“. Then I chose one of my selfie pictures to complete the challenge from „Challenge Yourself“. It might hard to see for you but you can see my reflektion right in the middle of the picture. The next step, I just followed the main design of the sketch by „The Memory Nest“. Last but not least, I added two Washi Tapes to my page to complete the challenge by „Scrap Our Stash. You can see the detail of my layout on my blog: www.tantikcreation.blogspot.de"

October Stash Challenge #31 - INKS

Welcome to Stash Challenge #31!!!

Before we get started with our new challenge we would like to introduce the

October Guest Designer
Katrina Hunt
 "I live in Springfield, Missouri with a roomie and four Cardigan Welsh Corgis that are pretty much the subjects in my layouts a lot! If I am not scrapping, I am either at my full time job, watching TV, playing on the iPad or hanging on the computer! I swear, I should have been a tech geek! I started scrapping in 2009 and haven't looked back. The funniest part is, I used to laugh about people buying all the paper, stickers etc. Now, I am the one wondering when the latest and greatest is available. I have been on several design teams, including sketch teams and manufacturer teams. Currently I am on Therm O Web Adhesives, {a flair for buttons} Etsy shop, CREATE magazine, Maya Road and most recently joined the The Cut Shoppe design team. I love the challenge that a design team gives me and I actually scrap better with a challenge."

Thank you Katrina for agreeing to be our guest this month!

Here's the Oct Stash Challenge:  
The challenge is to create a NEW layout and include a STASH item for each letter in the work INKS.  These items should be tangible items and/or the color or manufacture of a tangible item.
Please see challenge guidelines HERE. :) 

Check out this fabulous layout our Guest Designer, Katrina Hunt created inspired by our 

Here's what Katrina shares with us about her layout:
"Hello My Name Is AARP Eligible

Thanks for letting me guest design and I cannot wait to see everyone's take on this!"

"I have to admit, this was a very fun and fast layout to make becuase I used a Little Yellow Bicycle embellishments which was perfect for this challenge. It had all the school supplies I needed and did I mention how much I love LYB.  I sure which they were still around making paper! :( Anyway, for the challenge, I used the books, ruler and a paper clip.  Oh I used a notebook punch too! :)"
