Design Team Monday!

A new week = a new challenge! 

This week the team has an inspiration piece for you.  Once again, they have used their Nikki Sivils goodies to create masterpieces to inspire you.

First up, is the picture to provide the inspiration.....

Now, let's check out what the team did with it....


Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: Nikki Sivils Beatrice
Die Cut Title: Silhouette
Sticker: October Afternoon
Die Cuts: Jillibean Soup
Flowers: Unknown



Nikki Sivils paper - We Are Family
Maya Road ribbon
Maya Road coaster
Smooch Sprtiz
misc buttons
Cuttlebug embossed cardstock
blue cardstock


Michele - Here is mine. I will give it a couple coats of sealant so that this calendar can be carried in a purse without worrying about damaging it. But I took photos first to avoid light reflection while taking photos. So this is before coating with the clear sealant.  The front page (January) is inspired the ad above, oh-so-cool and inspiring indeed!!

Pop back here on Wednesday to get a look at the rest of this gorgeous calendar.

Material Used:
Maya Road coaster set
Maya Road Bingo card
Bazzill card stock
Inks: Smooch Spritz-Cherry Ice
Cat's Eye chalk ink
Black Memento ink
Gold Perfect Pearls
Black, brown and white pens for doodling
Copics to recolour here and there
Ornaments: button, brads, eyelets, metal corner and flowers

Thats's right, besides the brads, I hardly used anything on this calendar, it's ALL in the Nikki Sivils beautiful papers and a little ink for extras!!! This makes a great gift at Christmas time (this one is for grandma).


Virginia - I had SO MUCH FUN with this challenge - I definitely went out of my "comfort zone" of scrapping a clean and simple lined page but that's the fun of a challenge right? I even (gasp) misted freehand! Up till now I've only ever misted on chipboard or through a mask but to me this page is all about how chaotic my life has become since having my son (in a good way!) so I wanted to visually represent that with this layout
