August Kits ~ Design Team Extra Layouts!!!!

Hello TSR subscribers, fans, and friends!
Today we are showcasing the extra layouts the TSR Designers created using the 
August Kits.

The first four layouts we are showcasing today were all created using the 
Jillibean Soup " Mushroom Medley" Page Kit
included in the 
Flavors of the Month Kit
Designer Cassie Wiscarson
"What An Awesome Boy"
"I loved seeing the Simple Stories in the Shots of Life Kit and what made it even better was how cute those pieces looked with the Jillibean Soup papers in the Patterned Paper Add-On Kit. I wanted to use the sketch this month, but I only had one photo, so I added some of the cut apart cards to the top and bottom to create a similar feel.The only stash items were the little letters in the title."

Designer Rochelle Spears
"Outdoor Fun"
"This was a fun layout to create.  I fussy cut the outside part of the wood paper to form more of a cross cut piece of wood look.  I layered papers under my photo and centered it just a tab bit from the center.  All the papers are from the Flavors of the Month Kit.  The yellow circle & red "You Stole My Heart" circle is from the Bit Size Bits paper. "  

Designer Brenda Ragsdale
"Summer Road Trip"
"Such a great kit to document the road trip my nephew took his three sons on this summer.
The colors, fun patterns and the super cute embellishments complimented the photos well of the boys starting out on the road trip and as well as two hours into the road trip (see the layout below).   To complete my layout I used a few of the die cut pieces found in the August Embellishment Add-On Kit, and twine as well as sticker alphas from my personal stash!"

"...And So The Adventure Continues"
"For this layout besides using the kit, I used the Jillibean Soup "Morels" paper from the Patterned Paper Add On Kit, a brad from the Embellishment Add On Kit as well as a few wood veneer pieces and sticker alphas from my personal stash. 

The next layout was created using the 
Echo Park "Party Time" Page Kit
included in the 
Flavors of the Month Kit
Designer Rochelle Spears
"Celebrate Always"
"This Echo Park collection was perfect for my birthday photos! This layout is a companion page to another layout I created with this page kit.  The stickers are from the Embellishment Add-On kit, the title and the white cardstock (cut from a die cut machine) is from my personal stash."

And finally, our last featured layout for the day was created using the 
Simple Stories "Sunshine and Happiness" Page Kit
included in the 
Flavors of the Month Kit
Designer Rochelle Spears
"Hello Sunshine"
"I love sunburst paper!  This paper is from the Patterned Paper Add-On kit.  I cut a small circle from the middle of the paper and used the flower side as part of my layout.  I layered my papers, doily (from personal stash) and photo in the center of the burst, which was perfect!"

Shots of Life Pocket Page Kit Inspiration #2

Hello Everyone! 

Today we are sharing this wonderful layout Designer Cassie Wiscarson created using the July/August Shots of Life Kit along with the Patterned Paper Add-On kit:

"Love Thirty Three"
Cassie said this about her layout:

"These birthday papers and stickers came at the perfect time! I recently celebrated a birthday and decided to document myself for a change. All of the supplies came from the kits except for the bling, which is from my stash."


Cassie used Echo Park and Fancy Pants Paper from the
Add-on kit and Echo Park from the Shots of Life Pocket Page Kit.

This layout is actually a companion page for her Pocket Page layout she created and we shared last week:
"I created this traditional layout and the pocket page to go together in my album. I love being able to create pages that work perfectly together. The pocket pages can really speed the creating process up and look great with traditional pages too."

August Freaky Fast Formula Inspiration ~ DT Cassie Wiscarson

Happy Friday!
Got a little time to scrap this weekend?  Why not create a  layout using this month's
Freaky Fast Formula.

The formula's are created by one of our designers each month for the purpose of
encouraging you to create a layout in a short period of time, when you have little
or no time to scrap!

Today we are showcasing the layout TSR Designer Cassie Wiscarson created using the 
August Formula and the 
WRMK "Honey I'm Home" Page Kit 
included in the 
August Doubleshot Kit 

"Meet Me In The Sunshine"
Here is what Cassie shared with us about her layout:
"Isn't that heart pattern the cutest? I knew I wanted that pattern to be the focus, so I used that as my largest cut for the FFF challenge. I then cut the other pieces and played around for a long time before deciding on this arrangement. The wood shapes that are in the page kit are so cute! I wanted to use the frame so I looked around until I found a picture that would work in it. I added some gold Thickers for my title and a doily that I cut apart to finish my page."

Here's a look ar the formula that inspired Cassie's lovely page:

to play along with this month's challenge.
We would love to see what each of you create using 
this formula!
Have a wonderful weekend!!!!

 Here's what Steffanie shared about her layout:
"This really is a beautiful collection from Fancy Pants. Different for me but so perfect for these photos, right?!? I love how the pinks, yellows and greens play in so nicely with the flowers in my photos. And also, did you notice the weathered deck and how well it goes with the light tan/brown in the plaid and the photo corners? It's like they were made for each other! I'm really loving the epoxy stickers that Fancy Pants is putting out with their collections now...so fun to play with!"
