Over the past year, our five talented On-Going Guest Designers have been sharing their talents with us here on the blog every other month. We consider these designers a special part of our team, right alongside our regular Design Team. They have all been fabulous to work with, and we appreciate all the extra little things they've done for us along the way. Today we are sharing the last projects for this year's On-Going Guest Designers, from all FIVE designers. That's TEN brand new layouts, from them to you!
“She's My Favorite Cow”, by Brook Stewart.
This is a layout I've actually been wanting to do for several years. We have quite a few cows, but this one is my favorite. She's the only one with horns, probably one of the oldest we have (she was really old when we bought her) and she raises some of the best calves. She's always the first one to the feed. I’m going to miss this one when she's gone! I loved mixing the Bella lines and creating a bright color pallet!

“Our Boys”, by Brook Stewart.
This is one of my very favorite pictures of my boys from a couple of years ago. I layered lots of journaling cards and tabs for this one. This chevron background paper is one of my favorites to use as a background!

“This Is How I Roll”, by Jodi Wilton.
My inspiration for this layout came from the Rainbow on the Chasing Rainbows paper! I love that all the colors of the rainbow were on the additional sheets in this collection, and wanted to add as much color as I could to my layout!

“Camera Love”, by Jodi Wilton.
I was so drawn to the bright and bold colors in this line and I could wait to use the cameras on my layout. My youngest daughter LOVES to pose for the camera, and even though she is only three, she can pull of some pretty cute faces on demand! The camera loves her!

“Sisters Friends Forever”, by Juliana Michaels.
The pieces of die cut patterned papers behind my photo are actually "left overs" from another layout. I had cut out hearts from several different pieces of patterned paper, but I saved the large scraps. I'm glad I save them, because they worked perfectly to layer and place behind my photo.

“Too Cute”, by Juliana Michaels.
I had fun layering a lot of the Trick or Treat patterned papers to create a fun base for my photo and journaling. I also added a piece of patterned paper from the Birthday Girl collection which matched perfectly because it was purple. A fun tip to share is that I cut the "today is candy day" Paper Piece die cut and placed the top part of it on my layout and added my journaling to it. I then placed the bottom part lower down on my layout to make it look like a longer piece behind the other patterned papers.

"Haunted", by Ann-Christin Larsen.
Last autumn we were at a cabin by the lake. It was a huge house with 7 bedrooms. There was not many cabins nearby and we were all alone most of the time. When the dark came, the children were hearing some noises outside. It was probably just an animal, but I was a bit scared as well ;)
Trick or Treat: Happy Owlween, Alpha+Bits, Paper Pieces, Tabs
"PS I Love You", by Ann-Christin Larsen.
This summer we went to Sirmione, Italy. It was such a lovely place! Outside a restaurant we went crazy with the camera. I love this pictures and it is not often I am in the "spotlight". I am better off behind the camera.

“Love”, by Ebony van der Starre.
I totally fell in love with all the colors in all the new collections from this release! So bright and fun and so versatile. I created this layout without any patterned papers but rather used the gorgeous new arrows and bookplate stickers.

“Whale Watching”, by Ebony van der Starre.
This is a layout of my son whale watching! I loved this snapshot and these papers were perfect to create this page! I layered some of the gorgeous die cuts to frame my photograph and used larger strips of the Snapshots collection.
