Oh goodness, what a fantastic baby week! Not only did I get to see all the amazing layouts and projects from our team, but I also got to hold a tiny 5 pound baby, and loved loved loved every minute of it. I am often sad that my tiny baby stage has passed. Was I the only one to shed a tear or two while reminiscing?
(To ward of my sadness, I went ahead and slept through the night and left the house without a need for a diaper or wipes and cheered right back up!!)(Mostly.)
I am excited to be back with you for this scrapbook. Saturday! We have three new challenges for you that will hopefully help inspire three new pages for your albums! Back to the gallery we go for inspiration...
1. April Sketch
This month, we are going to base our sketch and template upon Celeste's gallery layout. Not only does this template work so well for showcasing multiple photos, but it also seems like a perfect sketch for a card.
And for your scrapbooking pleasure, we have created a layered template for you. Click here!
2. Trend Spotting
I often pretend to not care about trends. But that doesn't stop me from noticing them! And Diane's gallery layout uses two hot trends beautifully: hexagons and chevrons. I double dog dare you to use at least one of them on a layout! And if you try putting both on one layout, be sure to measure your proportions carefully! For example, Diane's use of the hexagons is bigger than her use of chevron, and is done is a faint hue, both of which let the patterns add to her page and not take it over.
3. April Printable
Monika kindly created a printable for us this month. Gosh, she is just so talented!
