Challenge Spotlight November 18th

Happy Tuesday! Its sooooo cold! I hope everyone is keeping warm! I have a great suggestion to keep warm, complete a challenge layout for this month’s challenge collab. How long has it been since you have changed your siggy? The Signature challenge is the perfect one for you to complete. Dagi from Dagi’s Temp-tations has made a great template to use! Don’t you love freebies!

I love this template! Makes the Siggy even more personal! Just look at the great siggy’s already posted:

First up is Mine!

DT_Oct2014siggy2

 

November Signature

Nov siggie

 

Nov Siggy challenge

Each one shows their personality! Mine, I love purple. So when I get to make a purple siggy for a challenge, I am always in! I love how each person chose something different for their photo from a picture of just them, a picture of them and their loved ones or a picture of a place or something else significant. I can’t wait to see everyone’s new siggys! Make sure you post them to the thread and to your tracker!

I hope everyone has a great rest of the week!

Fresh Baked: November 14, 2014

Wow. Already halfway through the second to last month of 2014! Can you believe how fast the year is flying by? As the weather is turning colder, the designers are bundling up in front of their computers, I’m assuming. They’ve got some great designs and kits coming out this week that are just amazing. Templates, family time, and even a few for Christmas. I don’t know about you, but it is never too early to start stocking up on those sorts of kits!

Before I show you the new stuff, I have to show off a few of the gallery layouts using new Buffet and the Monthly Mix, “November Spice”.


Created by trina513. This is actually part of a two-pager, and I really considered sharing both sides. I love the elements enhancing the pictures. Looks like it was a wonderful month, and I love how clearly you can see all the happy moments.


Created by jencrook. I just absolutely adore the use of white space. The clusters are just wonderful. I love all the fun shapes.


Created by lnewhouse. Another two-pager that I just could not resist. The clusters on this are amazing, and I just love the way the title flows through the pictures.

Remember, when you spend $10 in the store, you get a great grab bag!

Created by klgossia. Gorgeous clusters, and I love the choice of the textured paper.

Happy November! The month known for pumpkin pies, apple pies, pecan pies, all the pies! The fading of the leaves until the trees are bare, and the scents of pine and snow fill the air! Oh, and new buffet, monthly mix, and daily download goodies! The designers are keeping the forum hopping with DSD right now, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the month will bring!

It is the First of the month, and that means the revel of our new Buffet!! Don’t forget the new Buffet items will all be 50% off (from the 1-5th of the month)!

The designers all had their own take on what the colors and theme said to them! I love the variety!

The designers knocked it out of the park. The designs are just amazing and so well done!

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!
