THEN & NOW Design Team Challenge

Well, I am so glad I can finally post this layout. It's been ready for a little over 2 weeks. I did it early because of the Mega Crop. On the 10th of March, my husband & I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary. So last month when Melissa gave us our assignment I thought I would do a layout of us. I had the Teresa Collins paper line (red, black, cream, and white), so not my colors. But I am very pleased with the results.

The title was cut out on the Cricut using the Storybook cart and I chalked around each letter in black. I distressed the edges of the clock and the corner cut outs. Then I inked all the edges and the card stock buttons with Staz On Black.

Here is a list of the challenges and products used.

We had to use at least 4 out of 10 challenges. These are the ones I did: used circles in my design, layer, layer, layer, tore paper, and hand cut a design out of pattern paper.

Products: Teresa Collins (paper, transparencies, chip board stickers & buttons), Bazzill cardstock, Heidi Swapp flowers, Say it in Crystal Bling, Ribbon, & Doodlebug Sugar Coated Brads.


  1. Lisa, I love your page. Such a neat idea for a layout, and I think you rocked that Teresa Collins line (not my thing either)! Can't wait to see it in person.

  2. Lisa, pictures do not do this layout justice. OMG.........it is gorgeous!!! Don't forget to get that information on that little scanner for me and thanks for loaning me your Cricut cartridge.

  3. Lisa Lisa Cult Jam............I like!
