Default February 2023 - Show Off & Shout Out!

Hey, hey Sweet Shoppers!

Welcome to this month's Show Off & Shout Out companion thread! This is your place to strut your stuff and give some love to the scrappers who inspire you each month including yourself!

Rather than incorporating leaving love into this year's challenges, we decided we'd rather give you a spot to look through the gallery, leave love on your favorite pages, show off the pages you're most proud of creating this month and shout out to scrappers whose layouts really stood out to you! Best of all, we're giving away FREE stuff to say thanks for helping make our community sweet, inspiring, and uplifting too!

Here's how it works...

Claim your spot in this thread each month and before 11:59pm EST on the last day of the month, update your post with the following info...
  • Links to 15 pages you've left love on!
  • An image of the layout you want to show off... Tell us why you're proud of creating it and why you love it so much!
  • An image of a layout from a fellow sweet shopper you want to give a shout out to... Tell us why it inspires you, and what you love about it!

That's it! Just for showing off and shouting out, you'll be entered to win a free kit or mini bundle up to $15 in value from our sweet spot because at the beginning of every month, we'll be choosing winners at random from everyone who left love, showed off their favorite pages or nominated their fellow scrappers to win!

To be clear and concise...

Leave Love on 15 pages - 1 entry for yourself
Show Off - 1 entry for yourself
Shout Out - 1 entry for the scrapper you're giving a shout out to

** Remember that Sugarbabes & SSD Designers are not eligible, so be sure your Shout Outs are for pages created by other community members. **
*Monthly winners will be drawn at random from all entries received.

That's it! We think our community members are the best in digi-land, so we hope you love our new challenges and that you find this monthly thread an uplifting and inspiring way to interact with your fellow scrapper!

This was such a fun moment while in Epcot, we really enjoyed watching Pooh Bear playing around. I also love the way everything came together in this layout, with the template and the kit I used. The colors are perfect, the clusters turned out nice, but what I like the best is the bee Pooh tries to catch near the title.

Shout out:
My shout out goes to JillW with her Pay It Forward layout:

Not only is the design gorgeous with the split papers, the amazing clusters and the book, the story is touching as well. Kindness that's been heaven sent.

I love this page because it's so fun to go back and scrap older photos. My son in these pictures is now 15!! I have had my eye on this collab kit for a while and it was so fun to play with!

Shout Out:

This gorgeous LO by JillW is just beautiful! I love her cluster work and the placement of the JCs, the strings, and the pencil. So much to love on here!

This one has a different feel than most of my layouts. A little brighter and "cleaner." And I love that picture of Nathan.

I think everything about the layout is amazing.

This was a lot of work but so worth it. I don't document things about myself as much as I should, plus I really like all the info that is included with this page.

I just love how many photos Romanjo was able to include on her layout. The festive colors really bring home the excitement of her vacation page.

Show Off: I'm going to go with this LO, which I created about my son from a mostly girl-y kit.

Shout Out: I was totally drawn in to this page by Olivia (LivyBug). I love the artsy background, the combo of b/w and color photos, and the awesome layering and clustering below the photos. The stitched border is the perfect touch.

I love scrapping heritage photos but don't do it very often. It was fun going through my photos finding pictures to scrap.

I created a few pages this month that were outside my comfort zone. This page of our little guy was probably my favorite. I may have gone a little overboard on the embellishments, but love the end result.

Shout Out:
This page by crazycat1126 is simply adorable! I love everything about this page. The photo of Mr. Cutie Pie all tucked in ontop the stacked papers, watercolored heart and the bed of flowers to accent. Cute cute cute.

I initially created this layout for the using a template in an unexpected way This or That challenge (I ended up using it for the featured designer challenge instead), by not using a background paper and LOVED the way it turned out. The colors are bright and the page pops and I just adore those pics of my baby laughing at my fur baby!

This page inspired me to purchase this kit and will for sure be scraplifted in the future. I just love all of the delicious background layered papers, including cards and ephemera!
