October Build me a Layout

Post by sherelm » Tue Oct 01, 2019 12:50 pm

This month you "sort of" get a head start.   This month I want you to take a sheet of paper in your stash that has already started the layout for you!  You know, the ones we love and could even be framed, but then we don't know what to do with them once we bought them!  We all have them, now we are going to use one, and hopefully get some inspiration from each other as to what to do with the rest!

In case you aren't sure what I mean - here's some examples:
Image   Image Image Image Image 

Now for the "bonus" opportunities.  Since it is October, I need to do my annual rant of two things:  VERY few Mummies out there on anything Halloween, but even more surprising is the lack of ORANGE lettering!!!  Every time I see orange lettering, I buy it up!  For some reason I need orange letters, and most companies don't have them!  Clint was shocked when he saw that, he said "Of course there is orange lettering" only to come back and say "WOW.  Not even Thickers."  So if you use either orange lettering or add a mummy to your page somewhere, I'll put your name in twice!
Hope you like playing with these papers this month! Can't wait to see what you do!

(The regular rules apply: you may combine with any layout that allows it, you may cover up part of the "got you started" design, but I need to be able to see some of it", I'll choose on the first of November randomly for a $5 gift card.  Any other questions, please PM me, but consider the answer yes go ahead :)  )

I love using those decorative background papers! You are right about there being so few orange alphas. We are working on DGD Makaylee's Senior Volleyball Board and her school colors are orange and black and I have very few orange alphas.

I gather up orange, too, with an orange-headed DD and two grandkids!  Always on my wish list:  more orange letters, and more collections with NO PINKS!  LOL.......
I am sure I have some of these papers you described in my stash....I obviously have lots of papers I haven't use, and likely it's because I don't know what to do with them!  Bisous comes to mind, along with some October Afternoon and definitely G45 for me.  Another great challenge!

Funny story about orange letters (funny to me at least): 
I had a sheet of bright orange letter stickers that I hated - only had them because my daughter's high school colors were blue and orange.  Only five letters were gone from it.  Even so, I was about to throw them out last week as I knew I would never use orange letters (I really dislike orange).  BUT, the night before I had to lecture my DH about not putting the seat down in the bathroom.  So I had an idea.  I took those alpha stickers and put them to use to solve both problems:

Love this challenge.  I'll need to work on this once I get home.  We leave for Cleveland tomorrow and I just packed up all the scrappy supplies I brought with me.

Great use of those letters!!

Here is my layout. I did what you suggested, found a sheet and then dug for photos. I like how it turned out - simple but fun. No bonus.

I'm sure I have some paper that will work - will just have to search for photos to go with it! I have some old (must be alt least 9 years old) orange Thickers and I have a mummy Doodlepop. Will have to see how to use them!!

I may scraplift your idea. DH has always been really good about putting the lid down... until about the last 6 months. Every time I go in the bathroom it's up! I need to find some stickers to sacrifice. :)
