Default October 2022 - 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!

I just love these colors. I love the way the yellow, greens, teals, & orange look with the dark brown background. And...that fella is just so cute. Fine, I'm possibly a little biased. lol

Shout Out
Oh, this beautiful layout drew me in for a closer look. The colors are gorgeous and so are all the pictures tucked in amongst the beautiful clusters. But...the journaling (added in her description for those of us English speaking/reading) really tugged at my heart. Wonderful layout.

Show Off: Love this as it is a bit more grungy and painty than I usually do...a step outside my type a box

Shout Out: I love this one by JillW. It is hard to pull off a busy background paper and she did it with ease. Cool Halloween layout.

This was the first page I made for this month's challenges. It is still one of my favorites for this month. In the end I picked this one, because the clustering was a lot of work, but I didn't use a template for that, it's all made from scratch. I also like that I used a photo that didn't go with the theme of the kit, it turned out awesome.

Shout out:
My shout out goes to bcnatty with Take The Picture:

It was on this exact bridge I knew I was falling in love with Florence.
I can relate to your story... I hope that one day my daughter will appreciate all the memories I captured. Just looking at a photo should bring back the memories behind it. I hope your kids will feel that one day as well.
I love the template and the kit you used to scrap this story. Love the colors, the clusters and the stitch.
I made this my This Or That standout for October!

This is one of my favorite kits to scrap with & I just love how well it worked with this senior picture of my beautiful daughter. I especially love when kits have such pretty patterned papers and flowers that work so well together. She is away at college right now it helps me miss her a little less to look at some of these pictures!

Shout Out:

I love all the journal cards that Romajo used on here as well as all the stitching and the cute banner, not to mention the cute kitty pic!

I was a bit torn, I liked x2 of my layouts a LOT this month LOL. But this one made me happy, as it's the first time I've created corner clusters from scratch, normally I have a template and the kit worked so well with my photo.

Shout out:
This layout by Ona - Wombat146 is unreal. Such an amazing example of an art journal style layout. The background blending, the small cluster, and carefully placed WordArt are just so good.

Show off - I picked this because I really like the bold colors. The red starburst background and all the red accents really jump out. I don't use a lot of bold red but I love how this all came together and it makes me hungry every time I look at it!

Shout out - This page by Heather is just amazing. Her composition is so creative. I'm just in awe!

Picked this one because it is not my usual style but I loved how it turned out. From time to time, I had to try out the "Keep It Simple" technique.

Shout out:

This page by MrsPeel is fantastic. The place looks so magical to me and I really wish I have a place like this to go to close to me.

This was my favorite payout of the month. I don't do b&w photos often, but here I think it worked out great and brought in the xray photos to match.

Shout Out
I chose to shout out this page by LaurieZyskin this month. I just love the colors, the clusters, the background and the stamps. It is a page I plan to scraplift sometime.

I won't likely make anything better than this one this month! I love the colors and the depth and how I went outside the box to use this amazing kit.

Shout out:
I chose this page by Marijke. Just beautiful! I love the use of the frames and the simplicity which is something I admire but can never pull off.

This one was fun because the kit is so bright and lively. I like the way the colors worked with the colors of the Symphony Hall.

Shout out:

I love this page by Lidia G. It's such a beautiful fall layout. The photos and pretty clusters really pop on the brown background and I adore the use of white space with the photos and embellishments lined up on the left side.

This layout was special for me as I did it to feel better and to feel some comfort to scrap again after having some difficulties in our family life with my children. It helps me a lot to do it.

shout out:
This layout from Charlene is just perfect for the arachnophobe I am!
I just love the pictures she took of her son and how beautifully she scrapped this! Just perfect with the title and all the spider and insect elements and the great colors choice. I love her big beautiful and pretty cluster and all the details. Really great layout!
