April Challenge #1: Blog Design Challenge

Picking the design for your blog is a big deal!  It is very personal and really reflects your style and who you are (at least it does for me).  I am eager to redesign my personal blog since it no longer fits my style, but I am weighing all of my options so I can pick something that really represents me.

Challenge #1:  Blog Design Challenge:  Visit each of our Design Team Members and choose a blog design that you think you can translate into a scrappy project.  Look at their color scheme, theme, perhaps and element and use that on your card or layout.

Here are the list of our Master Forger Blogs (And our lovely Guest Designer):

I felt drawn to a design element on Stephanie's blog.  It was the perfect inspiration for a layout I had in mind!

Here is a sneak peek at the layout I made (you can see more on My Blog) :



Ready to see what blogs were inspiring to our Design Team?  I am!

Pop along to Angela's blog to see how Lisa inspired her to use these digital stamps and vacation photos.


Here's a sneak peek of how Lynnette was inspired by the banner on Guest Designer Maggie's blog.  See the whole layout on Lynnette's blog here.
