fresh Baked: October 24, 2014

Good morning! Weather is the topic that’s being discussed again. Indian Summer seems to be upon us, and it’s making any planning for dressing really complicated. Thank goodness for layers, right? The designers aren’t letting the weather get them down! They’re completely in the autumn and Halloween spirit. Templates to make scrapping those pictures even easier, and kits to make those pictures just pop off the page!

Before I show you the new goodies, I have to show you some amazing layouts using the new Buffet and the Monthly Mix, “As the Leaves Turn”.


Created by msbrad. I love the cluster and the simple framing of the pictures.


Created by chigirl. I love the artsy feeling to this layout. Doesn’t even look digital!


Created by zenjen. I love all the circles. Such a beautiful layout!

Challenge Spotlight October 14th

Happy Tuesday! Enjoying cooler temperatures? Counting down the day until DSD? Busy with challenge layouts? This week’s Challenge Spotlight is for the Mix It Up Challenge hosted by Rachel of Seatrout Scraps. Her challenge is to use this quote in a layout:

Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Oscar Wilde

And since I love this quote, this is the perfect challenge to highlight this week. This would be perfect to do a page about you, someone you love or maybe art journal the fabulous quote! Look at what some of the other members have done:

Good morning! The weather turned a little chilly, and we’re watching the leaves turn color. It’s a wonderful time of year, and the designers are definitely channeling it. They’re in the autumn and Halloween spirit. Templates to make scrapping those pictures even easier, and kits to make those pictures just pop off the page!

Before I show you the new goodies, I have to show you some amazing layouts using the new Buffet and the Monthly Mix, “As the Leaves Turn”.


Created by CindyB. I love the long panorama picture, and the utilization of whitespace. The leaves scatter just make it perfect!


Created by chigirl. I love the layers. The pictures also crack me up!
