August Challenge #3

In case you didn't already know---Noel is giving away an August "Country Life" Daily Diary Kit at the end of the month!!!!
"Country Life" Daily Diary Kit

All you have to do to be entered in the drawing is complete all 6 design team challenges from this week by August 30, 2015.

Please post your layouts into the correct albums on the Noel Mignon Members Facebook page, found here.

You do not need to use a Noel Mignon kit for these challenges---so if you have never purchased one, now is your chance to win one!!! And if you have purchased one, you know how awesome the Daily Diary Kits are.

My challenge is to dig into those unused stamp sets (you know you have a few laying around) and use them on a layout.  You can upload your entry for the Stamping Challenge into this album.

I love stamps, but sometimes I forget about them.  So I decided to pull a set out and use it on this layout of my son making wishes on dandelions...

I used the August 2015 "Country Life" Classic Kit for this layout.  I have already created quite a few layouts with this month's kit, and wanted to use up some of those leftover scraps on this one.

I really enjoyed creating a custom journaling block for this layout using stamps.  I decided to stamp right off the paper on this one--I find that adds a little interest. Which is why I also chose to hide parts of the stamped images under the papers and photos.

The adorable Pretty Little Studio "Marigold" word flags made great additions to many of the layouts I created with the "Country Life" Classic Kit.  One reason I enjoy getting Noel Mignon Kits so much, is because I get to try new products, that I wouldn't even have know existed---like these little word flags.  

The right half of my layout is fairly simple---I repeated the papers, stamped images, and word flags on this side in order to unify both sides.

I absolutely love the Shimelle wood buttons in this month's kit.  I think they are my very favorite embellishment this time around.  I like to add them into embellishment clusters like the one pictured above.

Don't forget to do all 6 challenges from this week for your chance to win a "Country Life" Daily Diary Kit.

Add your entry for today's Stamp Challenge to this album on Facebook.  Thanks for joining us!!!
