I loved the way she used a circle for a photo and the other for journaling along with the banners. I think it would be great to use as is or even make some changes to the sketch to fit more photos. Either way, it is a great design full of inspiration.
Here is the sketch I made from her layout:
I'd like to welcome our Guest Designer, the winner of last month's sketch, Sherri. Take a look at what she created for this month's sketch. Sherri says the Nook is her scrappy home on the web. She sincerely loves the women who make this place what it is, and is never at a loss for good company, honest conversation, giggles, and oodles of inspiration whenever she pops by. Sherri has been scrapping for about 7 years, and enjoys mixing product and playful elements to create projects that are vibrant with a touch of whimsy. Patterned papers, buttons, ribbon, chipboard, doilies, tags, and mists are her go to products when creating pages that reflect the little moments of her life. Sherri also adds: "A heartfelt thanks to the DT for this opportunity to join them in this month's Member Inspiration Challenge."
And here is Sherri's beautiful layout inspired by the sketch. I just love how she changed the circles to rectangles for the photo and journaling. Thank you, Sherri, for sharing your beautiful work with us!
So here is your challenge: make a creation inspired by this sketch! Upload your layout to the message board no later than Sunday, June 10th, and you just might be the one we pick for our next Member Inspiration Guest Designer. You don’t need to use a Nook kit to participate and you can choose to make a card, a layout, art page, etc.
Here are more layouts by our Design Team:
I'm excited to see what you will create and interpret the sketch, remember to upload here so we can see! Thank you!
TGIF and Friday Fave. The gallery is beautiful and so inspiring. Picking one favorite is always hard, so I searched through theKit CreationsGallery, and found this layout byDanielle.
What caught my eye were lots of photos and the use of product. It was a busy, fun day for a little one with the photos documented to tell the story. The white background and the design of the photos makes this busy layout not too busy. What also helps the photos flow is the use of product...the pattern paper, the stickers, buttons...even the little detail of the notebook border on the pattern paper help bring the eye around. Danielle, you did a great job of making a beautiful layout with a story to tell using lots of photos!

card by danni
i was inspired by the doilies on the pp and the pie charts on nicole's
layout. i wanted a feminine twist to my pie chart incorporating the
"doilies" from the pp so i cut a pie chart and then backed it with
lace, layered one of the pp "buttons", floral, butterfly and sentiment.
we can't wait to see yours ladies!!!

Hi there all you nookers.
Today's challenge is focused on technique and I have chosen one of my
favorites which is using vellum. I made a little video to show you some
of my favorite ways of using this really underrated crafting material.
Have a look!
Now it's your turn. Create a layout or a set of two cards using vellum. Be creative and above all have fun!
Oh here's my layout!
Upload your layout to the May Technique Challenge thread in the forum here.
There is so much eye candy in the gallery, picking one layout as a Fav is challenging. I searched through the Kit Creations Gallery, and came across this eye catching layout by Laurence.
Laurence used those adorable butterflies from the May Kit (still on sale). I really love her design. The layers are so delicate and so eye pleasing as she made the design to go along with the lines of the background paper, it just brings your eye directly to that adorable photo.
Great work and CONGRATS, Laurence, for being this week's Friday Fav!
