Creativity Is A Team Sport

The football season is over. The olympics are now over. Baseball season hasn't begun yet. Perhaps you think there are no team sports to watch. Good thing you popped over here to this blog.

As you walk around the store, you notice lots of layouts, projects and other items which give inspiration and show some ways to use the papers and products sold at the store. There are several folks who prepare examples for the store. It takes several people and a lot of work. I have been trying to show some of the great items out here and to showcase those people who take the time to create some items for our walls and shelves.

These five layouts are the work of a lady named Penny. Her boys fill the majority of her pages. The pictures here are of the last group of layouts she completed for us. Above, you see that the guys are her world. Don't you like the way that she used the travel type of paper for that thought? And, the brown stripe is velvet ribbon. Perfect on this masculine layout.

When the team members pick up a packet of product, they don't always know what they'll find. Usually, they have to just make a call based on a color or something showing at the top of the stack. I'm not sure if there would have been a better person to pick up this stack of product. The layout "Massey Men" is a perfect match for the Graphic 45 papers in the Perfect Gentlemen line and the Bo Bunny Mamarazzi papers she used.

Many may struggle with patterns and colors for BOY pages. In this layout, I think she really gives a great way to show off a fun photograph while providing her thoughts on the large journal section. This next layout provides the same sort of inspiration. The pride of the scrapbooker shows in the way the paper and photograph work together along with the journaled notes.

Penny does a great job on layouts and she especially pushes me to journal more. This is a strong point of all of her work.

I am sure that these layouts will inspire all of you too.

I love all the journaling. That last layout is fab, and I really like the pic in the Massey men.
