May 15 2017 Challenge Featured Layout #2

We're sharing another featured layout based on our May 15th sketch. But before we show you today's inspiration, we want to recognize our sponsors for this challenge.

A big thank you goes out to Charms Creations for sponsoring this challenge. They're offering a $20.00 gift certificate to their online store for one lucky participant!

My name is Charmane Koch & I am owner of Charms Creations! I am living in the Adelaide Hills, about 20 minutes from Adelaide, South Australia with my partner Ash & 3 gorgeous children - our son Chei aged 12 & two girls Harmony aged 10 & Ryarne aged 6!
I started Charms Creations back in 2010, after creating a few handmade creations for my own layouts I had a suggestion to make them and sell them to others. It started as selling only a few for a *Market* on a Scrapbooking Site, then selling them on my blog, then I started selling them on my Facebook Page.
I started selling them in a Big Cartel Store -http://charmscreations.bigcartel.com/ a few years ago, and still do, along with having sales & new releases over on the Charms Creations Facebook Page.
I am very lucky to also have a fantastic Creative Team who have been helping me spread the word with their gorgeous work around the web & in Scrapbooking Magazines.
I also have an AMAZING group of regular customers who also share their gorgeous work here in this fabulous group to give Ideas & Inspiration as well!
So please feel free to share YOUR work with us here - we would LOVE to see it!
Happy Creating!

AND thank you to Wycinanka, who is also sponsoring this challenge by offering a beautiful themed prize pack to a second lucky participant.

In a small factory at the foot of the Izera Mounains,
with passion and involvement, we create unusual products to handicraft.  
In Wycinanka's offer you will find chipboards, stencils, stamps and ... just look at  www.wycinanka.net

Desgin Team News

Hello friends!  If you recall, back in March when we announced our new DT, I mentioned that we would be adding one more member once her current commitment is over.  Well, today I would like to introduce you to our newest and final member! Please join me in welcoming Suzanna Lee to our team!


I am Suzanna Lee; mother, wife, Physical Therapist, cat nap partner and a whole host of other titles! I have long had a hand in the crafting world but my love for patterned paper and fussy cutting began when we moved here to Glen Allen, Virginia and my paper collecting hobby became a paper cutting and album creating hobby! My first gig as a Design Team member for our (now out of business) local scrapbook store led to another team and another and I have been going ever since.

My style is rather eclectic. I tend to be more graphic and linear with a preference for straight lines and a clean look. I have been known however to meddle with watercolor and messy things that add a very different look to a page. I scrapbook in all shapes and sizes; 12x12, letter, pocket, double page, you name it, I do it.

Over the years, I have had the honor and pleasure of working with several sketch/challenge, manufacturer and kit design teams, and have had my layouts published in magazines and books. When not in my scrappy nook, I can be found chauffeuring or cheering for my swimmers, at work as a Physical Therapist or chilling at home with a book or the cat. You can find me on social media in the following places;
Blog http://www.lifestrivialities.typepad.com/
Instagram http://instagram.com/suzlee72
Facebook – crafty https://www.facebook.com/SuzannaScraps
YouTube http://www.youtube.com/c/SuzannaLee


You may be familiar with Suzanna as she was a guest for us back in mid March, we are happy to have her join us and know you with love the addition her design style brings to our team!

I want to thank you for following along with us, entering our challenges and supporting our amazing sponsors; it means so much to all of us!
