Welcome to another round of the Featured Designer Challenge! I hope you guys are ready to play again! I'm looking forward to seeing all those beautiful pages! :DD


Maurine, the talent behind Let Me Scrapbook Designs (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=13_189), is our next FEATURED DESIGNER! Maurine was also one of our Next Designer Contest Top 3 Winners in 2009! And she has got to be one of the sweetest ladies I've ever met! She was so surprised when she won our contest, although, if you look at her designs, there were no surprises there!! Her designs are so much fun and full of color and energy! She has a great eye for color combinations and mix and match patterns! Matter of fact, her patterned papers are what I love most about her designs! I just love to stack & layer different patterned papers on my layouts and Maurine's kits are oh so perfect for that!! Her Featured Kit, Affinity (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=13_189&products_id=7805), is a perfect example of what I'm talking about! And all you scrappers are going to have a chance to WIN this beautiful kit, just for posting a layout!!! :((

But, wait!!! That's not the only contest going on for these two weeks!! Maurine is also hosting a WIN MY STORE (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=13_189) contest!! That's right, everyone who makes a $5 or more purchase in her store (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=13_189), July 1-15th, will earn an entry into a random draw to WIN her ENTIRE STORE!!! And her store (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=13_189) is 40% off to boot! ;)

07-04-2011, 12:22 PM
Anyone that has ever taken a look at the recipe card challenge knows that I love Maurine's kits. It is really great to get one of her kits to play with. Love it. Back soon.

07-04-2011, 01:26 PM
I agree, she always has such vibrant colors! Gotta find the time for this one.

07-04-2011, 01:32 PM
I have to agree Rose, Maurine's Recipe Challenge is awesome!! I wish I had more time... and more recipe's ;).... to contribute, those starter kits are fantastic! :))

07-04-2011, 03:43 PM
You've got another one agreeing with all the previous posts! I am a big fan of Maurine and her wonderful creations. I would never want to miss one of her recipe challenges either! She truly is a sweetheart in so many ways.
Thanks for the beautiful mini, Maurine. I'm so looking forward to playing with it.

Thanks Maurine,
Going to give it a go....such lovely colors and elements!

07-04-2011, 10:29 PM
I have been getting the RCC ever since the beginning, then finally last August I began contributing. I happen to love whatever Maurine creates. She is so original! Just wish I could afford them all, but I do have most. I know the blog trains she enters and get those, too. This will certainly be one place I post this month.

07-05-2011, 01:11 AM
Wow Maurine! Love that kit & the addon. I have a real "affinity" for it (pun sooooooooo intended).



07-06-2011, 04:37 PM
I love the birdie in your kit, gotta have it!!! I'll get a layout done soon hopefully!!

Every time I come back to check things out, I'm in awe of your layouts and the wonderful pictures you've used. I'm truly amazed at the designs you are creating with this little mini kit!

P.S. I would LOVE to post your layouts on my blog just to show off what a great job you're doing, but I won't do that without your permission. If you're OK with that, will you please reply here, or send me a PM, or an e-mail to LetMeScrapbook at hotmail dot com. Thanks!

07-10-2011, 09:52 AM

I would be honoured if you would place my layout on your blog. This is a really lovely kit and I am sure I will use it again.

Lots of luv

07-10-2011, 04:50 PM
I just love this kit! I have been a fan of Maurine's for quite some time, and have been lurking around this forum for a while, but never really taken the step to becoming a member. Until now, that is. Here's my layout

07-11-2011, 09:52 AM
Maurine, I too would be honored to have my layout on you blog.

07-11-2011, 02:41 PM
I do not mind if you put my LO on your blog! :)

07-11-2011, 02:58 PM
Here's mine and I too would be honored if it was posted on your blog. Do you want me to email the full size?

I just added my first blog post (http://letmescrapbook.blogspot.com/2011/07/affinity-layouts-and-freebie.html) that includes your layouts. Thanks so much for letting me share your work! If others still want to let me know you're OK with posting yours, I'll happily do so.

07-12-2011, 11:29 AM
wow...I would be so excited if you posted my layout on your blog! I really cannot say enough about how talented you are Maurine :)

Would be honored to be on your blog! Love your mini & all of your kits! Thanks...

07-12-2011, 09:36 PM
GORGEOUS kit! Okay, my favorite color combo too. My birthday layouts always have a page that is blue, green and purple. This is from my 42nd birthday.



07-13-2011, 07:18 PM
This is a cute kit. Thank you ! I had fun trying something different with this page.

I'm going to be sad to have this challenge end -- it has really been an honor and pleasure to have you work with my kit and create some truly wonderful pages! I just included another blog post highlighting more of your layouts -- thanks again for giving your permission. You can see that post here (http://letmescrapbook.blogspot.com/2011/07/more-affinity-layouts.html).

07-15-2011, 12:01 AM
oh my, it's been a while since i was able to make a layout. life has thrown a few challenges at me for the past month and a half or so that made it hard to tap into the creative juice, but i'm glad i got around to it. this kit is so beautiful, i love all the pages everyone made with it too. i'm dying to go to bed but i wanted to post before i went, so here it is (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/featured-designer-challenge/p79977-serious-romantic.html):

Maureen, if you are still looking to post layouts, I’d be glad to give permission. I pretty much won’t post a layout I’m not comfortable with being in cyber space. So, anyone that would like to post mine may. I usually alter the journaling to take out last names and kids names on my posted layouts anyway. :)

07-15-2011, 10:58 AM
Love how my layout turned out. Thanks for the great mini kit.

07-15-2011, 11:35 AM
It is amazing how many beautiful layouts can be made with one beautiful mini kit! Well done to all of the layouts this far! And THANK YOU, Maurine! You are a wonderful designer!:))

Here is what I made:
