March Berry Big Deals

Berry Big Deals are always amazing and March’s are no exception.  This is my favorite promotion at Pickleberrypop.  The prices are a steal and I love that the collections all coordinate yet each one is beautiful and quite unique.  The credits below each layout link to the store.

Use It All Challenge at Pickleberrypop

The Use It All Challenge at Pickleberrypop is always fun!  Just create a layout using everything in the free mini kit then post it in the gallery and on the challenge page.  Paula of Palvinka Designs is hosting this month.  She has provided this sweet mini called Fresh as a Daisy.

Did I mention I love daisies?  Here’s my layout.

New Releases at Pickleberrypop March 5, 2019

I’m sorry to be running a day late.  I’ve signed up for B-School and this first week has been a flurry of activity for me.  I do have a couple of layouts showcasing a couple of new collections for this week.  As always, the credits under each layout are linked to the Pickleberrypop Store.

Mystery Box Challenge for March 2019

The Mystery Box Challenge has become one of my favorites. You never know what you’re going to get until you download it.  Since many designers contribute a portion to the kit it can contain a variety of styles.  While that can be challenging it also means you have an opportunity to step out of your comfort zone which is a great way to grow.  Remember, if you always stay in your comfort zone there is less chance to learn something new.

Here is the layout I created with this month’s mystery box. To create the circles at the bottom of the page I used a white paper with blue polka dots and applied a blend mode. It’s the same paper I used for the photo mat.

In case you’re wondering, the fonts used are Happy-Txt Abrasive and Boy-Carolina Mountains.

 

Are you up for a challenge?  Head on over and grab The Mystery Box Challenge kit. Then come back and tell me one or two things that challenged you.

February Use It All Challenge at Pickleberrypop

If you’ve been following me for a while you know I love challenges.  I also recommend them to others because they usually encourage you to get out of your comfort zone in some way.  It may be by asking you to create a layout with a kit or style that’s not your typical go-to colors or style.  This month’s Use It All challenge is provided by Alexis Design Studio.  Lexy’s kits are always beautiful and include flowers and lace with a feminine touch.  Here’s the layout I created using the mini kit she has provided.  Did I tell you I also love envelopes or pockets I can fill?

 


Check out the challenge here.  Isn’t amazing how many different looks can be achieved?

Berry Big Deals January 2019

Berry Big Deals are new in 2019 and I love them.  Berry Big Deals begin the third Tuesday of each month.  While similar to the Pickle Barrel of old it’s also different.  Designers all create coordinating kits but they’re also given a little more creative freedom in color and design.  Each designer is given three colors they must use and they add three additional colors. So you get amazing prices and gorgeous new designs with more variety.

As you can tell by the number of layouts I have to share today, I love this month’s Berry Big Deals.  If I had more time I would have created even more layouts because every time I saw another new kit I wanted to use it but alas my time is limited.  Here are my layouts and they’re all linked.
