Layouts from Convention Boards

I wish there were more scrapbook layouts on the boards at convention so I could get more ideas for my scrapbook classes but there were enough layouts for a good start.  I thought I would feature several of them in a single post.
 I like the way this artist used diecuts to add dimension to the background of this layout.  Sewing them on is an unusual yet fun way to adhere diecuts to a layout.
 The scalloped borders under the picture is cut from the Tasteful Trim Bigz Die.  The fabric flower adds another great touch to the layout. 
 This layout features the Perfect Pennants die.  I love the way she topped the pennants with a little piece of the scallop die. 
Even though there is a lot of white on this layout the use of diecuts and embossing folders gives it a lot of depth and character. 
 There is another effective use of multiple dies on this layout.  Cutting the same die with multiple patterns of paper makes for a fun background to go with fun pictures.
 Circle punches abound on this bright layout.  I love that she carried out the circle effect with buttons and a pleated flower too.  The subtle spritzed yellow in the background ties it all together.
I like to put as many pictures as I can on one page so this page definitely appeals to me.  I like the tree bark background and die cut leaves that carry out the nature theme of the page.
Aren't these inspiring layouts!  I need to find more time to work on my scrapbook pages. 
Don't forget that if you place an order between now and Oct 31st, you will get your name entered in my drawing.  I'm giving away 3 sets of stamps, one for Aug, one for Sept and one for Oct.  Good luck with winning!  And if you haven't finished your Treasure Hunt, go to my previous post and write down my clue to add to your list.  Wouldn't it be great if you were the one to win the $150 of Stampin' Up supplies!
