The ScrapRoom January Layouts

I love being on Design Teams for many different reasons.  But one of the most important reason for me is that it keeps me focused and on schedule to create.  I love deadlines, structure and accountability, which design teams provide for me.

So even though I am the new owner of
The ScrapRoom (woohooo!!!),  I still plan to design also!
I know I will be busy daily with the business, however, I'm making it priority to continue to attend a crop a month with the local girls. :) 

So here are my January layouts and a couple of cards I created using the

Bella Blvd:
For the sketch challenge

Fancy Pants Designs:

Simple Stores:

For the Freaky Fast Friday Formula:

And lastly, 
PhotoPlay Paper
For the Double Page Recipe:

Here are a few cards I created using the scraps:

If you are looking for a variety of the latest and greatest scrapbook products
just enough to create 4-8 layouts at a reason price,
is perfect for you!  You can subscribe to the club on
