"Sweet" Layout by DT Marie Claire Rodier

Good morning!
Today's lovely feature is being shared by SOS Designer Claire, inspired by our
February Book Inspired Stash Challenge:
Marie:
When I first first saw the book cover, I was immediately attracted to the moose and I knew I had to do a layout about my super sweet dog. He's such a big energic and hyperactive little fellow that when he finally rests, I have to run and grab my camera to get a few shots, since it usually last only a few minutes.

Since we had to integrate hearts to our layout this month, I chose this lovely Maggie Holmes paper as my background. I've added a thin layer of white gesso and on top of it, modelling paste through a stencil, stamping and stash of wood grain papers that mixed well with my picture. I've completed my layout with wired string, chippies and gorgeous flowers."

Here's the challenge:

"Look How Far We've Come" Layout by DT Renee Timmerman

Hello and welcome to another day of Design Team inspiration!
Today SOS Designer Renee is sharing her wonderful take on our
Renee:
"I was inspired by the rays in the background of the cover! So I used a stencil that was similar to the rays to cut out different scraps I had left from a SMASH book I ripped apart. I knew I wanted to document the first apartment I had with my past relationship because it was down right craziness. Once I started seeing the crazy things I could cut out from the SMASH papers, I felt it was perfect. I also added some Dear Lizzy stickers about homes - which I thought I'd never be able to use. I know this layout is a bit all over the place but I enjoyed the mess and got to use a lot of my stash. Hope I inspired you to get a little crazy with my interpretation of the challenge!!"

"Big Hearted Friend" Layout by DT Asa Johansson

Good morning everyone!
Today SOS Designer, Asa is sharing her beautiful interpretation of our
February Book Inspired Stash Challenge
Asa:
" I haven´t read the book but I was inspired by the title. The blond girl is a friend of mine with a BIG heart, so of course she had to be in the photo on this page with this title. 
We were out in the forest in this photo, forest-moose... That´s one more similarity with the book.
The hearts weren't  hard to add, I have plenty of them!
I hope you are inspired by my page and I can´t wait to see your work!"

Here is our current challenge.

"My Darling Little MD" Layout by DT Cassie Wiscarson

Happy Monday!
Today's featured layout is the creative work of talented SOS Designer Cassie,
inspired by our
February Book Inspired Stash Challenge:
Cassie:
"I haven’t read this book before, at least that I remember, so I wasn’t too sure what I was going to use as inspiration. When I went through my printed photos, I found two pictures of my daughter when she was giving me care instructions for her stuffed frog with a “broken” leg. Perfect! These photos showed her caring nature and I was off and running. I also loved the striped look of the background and decided to use this fun arrow cut file and filled each row of arrows with various stripped pattern papers. Of course, I had to add at least two hearts, and I ended up with 3 of them."

Today's fabulous feature is being shared by SOS Designer, Patricia,
inspired by our
February Book Inspired Stash Challenge:
Patricia:
"It's something about using white paint on colored card stock that makes a page pop for me! The white lines on the cover of the book inspired me to attempt to do the same to my page. 

I used plenty of hearts on my page as you can see!

Thanks for looking!

"Beaches" Layout by DT Sherri Caramico

Happy Friday!
What better way to end your week than with some amazing inspiration!
Today's featured layout is the creative work of SOS Designer Sherri
inspired by our
Sherri: 
"I decided to use the shrubs or foliage at the bottom of the book-cover, and the starburst effect behind antlers as my inspiration, as they reminded me of a photo / selfie that I took while on vacation this last October, at Beaches in Turks and Caicos! 

I have to admit, while I love Dr. Seuss, and have ready many of his books to my (now grown up) sons, I have never read this one. Looking at the picture, I could have chosen the White, Blue, Black, Red color scheme, or a photo of a Moose! or maybe a big banner, or antlers, or a hat, or even just something related to hearts ("Big-Hearted Moose").... really, so many possibilities! - I hope your mind is running in a bunch of directions right now, as to how you are going to interpret it, and that you will play along with us! "
