12 x 12 12x12 layout Maggie Holmes Melissa Mann This Must Be the PLace This Must Be the Place add-on

Good Morning, everyone! This is Melissa here with you today and I'm sharing a new layout made with the January kits, "This Must Be the Place" and add-on. I used a sketch that Susan shared last month. I LOVED the sketch and wanted to participate in the sketch challenge, but ran out time. So, I went back and used it for this layout using this month's kits!

It all started when I was placing two more rolls of tape on my washi tape holder. Horror of horrors, it was almost full! Yes, I have a love affair with washi tape. And no, I can't help myself! Determined to put a dent in my stash of pretty tapes, I created this vibrant Christmas tree of washi tape "flaps".

Scraptastic Store: Open Book Collection

12 x 12 buttons Crate Paper Ephemera Fabric Brads Madeline Fox Maggie Holmes November 2014 Open Book Scraptastic Store

Good afternoon Scraptastic friends! Today I'm sharing another layout with Maggie Holmes' Open Book collection. This page celebrates an honored football homecoming tradition at the University of Alabama. In the Greek community, sororities and fraternities team up to create expansive lawn decorations for the celebration. In this particular year, my son's fraternity helped put together the winning display. Hours upon hours of rolling and gluing tissue paper went into their magnificent scene. All papers are from the Open Book collection...except one. A scrapbook page about the University of Alabama wouldn't be complete without a bit of black and white houndstooth....
