Design Team Gallery {picture heavy}

I think its been too long since I've really spent time going through the gallery and bringing you my favorites. This will become a monthly thing again real soon!
Not that January wasn't busy.....

So, without further ado, here are some of my favorites from January and February. You can see everything in the Design Team Gallery. Looking for a specific paper line? Use the search function to find layouts and ideas using that. And if you're looking for some Valentines ideas - some of these out!

Carrie - I love how she manages to use multiple pictures on her layouts - something I can never seen to accomplish. And you can still see the great papers and embellishments. KI Lace cardstock - a great touch to any layout or card. And by using little pieces, you can stretch out your dollar!

Another cute cupcake mini album. I think this cupcake mini was my favorite mini from Maya Road.
The Pink Paislee Sweet Cakes line is perfect for just about anything. The colors are so refreshing!

Emeline - her details always get me. The layers upon layers and the picture is still the focus.

Mandy - she loves to create cards, tags and minis so if you ever need that inspiration, see Mandy! How cute is this little felt purse for the mini tags and valentines!

A great use of the Maya Road keychains!

June - I think this girl uses every last scrap of paper and every embellishment I send her! I can't believe some of the things she comes up with! This is the new card kit thats going on sale today. 10 cards from 3 sheets of paper - just add cardstock. Look for a special discount in the store today.

The KI Sheers make great page embellishments! June layered them here to make little flowers.

And the KI Lace papers in the mini almbum as an extra page! The Maya Road keychain books are perfect for the small projects. Use up some of your scraps easily with one of these!

Those KI Lace papers again!
Maya Road cupcake rubons - who can resist the cupcakes??
Awesome Valentines banner made with the Cosmo Cricket Chemistry line!
Wendy - She's another one who uses everything I send her. I love this!

She put the MM Love Notes papers and embellishments and the Jenni Bowlin Heart Mini to good use here. And I love how they are using little pieces of the KI Sheer Delights. In these economic times, I know its hard to spend $2.50 or more on papers, but when you get the most out of them, then they don't seem so expensive. With the KI Sheer Delights, you can make a bunch of embellishments and for $2.50, thats not too shabby! Or you can use the entire sheet as a background!

******Layout removed for Publication*******

More fun papers - the KI Lace cardstock. They make your layouts and cards pop!I love all the fun details of this layout, but what caught my eye was the placement of the letters around the focal point of the photo - hands holding.

More Making Memories Love Notes - really have to admit that Making Memories just outdoes themselves with each new line. The new embellishments and papers they come out with make you think outside the box. Their latest sticker letters are so elegant. Wendy cut some of the lace patterned paper from this line and added some glitter to the edges to make the lace flowers pop from the page.

And a few weeks ago, we had our big Birthday Bash. Mandy ran the show for an entire week. Next up, Valentines week with Emeline! Yeah! She'll be sharing some of her favorites from the gallery, some of her February projects and a lot more! There will be a giveaway and there is currently a contest open. Make sure you have your layouts and cards uploaded by the 14th to win! We still have a huge pile of free stuff from CHA to give away!

Back to the Birthday Bash. Mandy asked everyone to find a layout in the Stash Gallery and lift it. We've been so busy with CHA and new products that we skipped over the announcement. Congrats to Adeline!
