New Releases at Pickleberrypop January 28, 2020

January 28th new releases are live and currently on sale at Pickleberrypop.  Be sure to head over to the store and check out all the lovely new collections.  My layout today was created using Full of Love by Lorie M Designs.  I used the template that is free with purchase of the collection.  Isn’t it cute!

New Releases are Live at Pickleberrypop Jan 14, 2020

New releases are now live and on sale at Pickleberrypop!  I used a black background paper in my sample layout today.  I seldom use black or extremely dark backgrounds but when I do I always love the results.  Dark backgrounds make everything else pop.  The credits are below the layout and are linked to the store.  I love this set of templates too.  Be sure to check them out.

January Bonus Challenge at Pickleberrypop

January’s bonus challenge worked out perfectly for me.  I love creating a layout with my goals for the year.  Then I modify if enough to use as the desktop wallpaper on my computer.  This helps me keep my goals in mind.  Plus, it’s pretty!  So here is my 2020 goal layout.  The credits below the layout are linked to the store for the kit and also to the challenge in the forum.

Use It All Challenge January 2020

Use It All challenge this month is hosted by Isa at Bellisae Designs.  I must admit I loved this one so much I also picked up her full kit by the same name.  If you want to participate in the challenge you’re only supposed to use the mini kit but as a CT member, I’m not eligible for prizes anyway, so I used some pieces from the full kit too.  The credits below the layout are linked to the challenge and also to the kit if you want to pick that up too!

Template Challenge January 2020

Template challenges are fun.  You get a free template and you can use whichever kit you prefer.  The template this month was designed by Heartstrings Scrap Art and I love it!  I also love her most recent collection, Tapestry of Life.  You may remember I used this same kit on my last layout and it won Layout of the Week at Pickleberrypop!  Naturally, since I love both, I had to pair these two together and I really like the resulting layout.  Here is my layout. The challenge and kit are listed below the layout and they’re both linked to the store.
