August Template Challenge: To Blend or Not to Blend

I don’t know about you but I’m a “blender”.  I just can’t seem to leave a background alone.  I have to either blend full pages, use a mask or blend some other item into the background. The templates I selected give you the option to go either way. I’ve chosen Heritage Memories Layered Template and Go Outside and Play Layered Template.

Our wonderful Guest Creative Team jumped in to provide a little extra inspiration for you.  Each one used both templates and added their own touches including items from additional products. First up is Christine (Christine Irion) with this lovely heritage page. I like how she leaned heavily on the one of the templates and then increased the blue tones and added embellishments from the second template.  To complete her page she used My Family Genealogy Scrapbook Paper.

Next up is Deborrah (DivaMom) with a fun page recording a family visit. Every time I look at this page I smile at those great smiles and funny faces by her boys. She also leaned on the original heritage Memories template and then added and enlarged the foliage from the other one to give it a very garden effect. Deborrah used Curated Team Scrapbook Mix No. 10 Value Pack to complete her page.

Maureen (maureenreynolds) pulled her inspiration more from the Go Outside and Play template, using elements from both templates and rearranging the photo frames she created a wonderful memories page of her life in Malawi. I like the added textured background she used. To complete her project she used Animal Park Solids Paper PackEvergreens Scrapbooking Kit, and Watercolor Blends Layered Template No. 06.

I also created a page using both templates. I brought frames to the heritage template and added these additional items: Most Awesome Brushes and Stamps No1, My Story Background Paper Pack No1Vintage Edge Overlays No. 03 , and Worn Edges No. 01.

Two templates and four completely different layouts. Are you inspired to play along?  I’m excited to see what you create as you combine the two templates. If you don’t have  Heritage Memories Layered Template or Go Outside and Play Layered Template in your stash watch  for them in this week’s Thrifty Thursday Sale!
