Your Style, Your Way

September 2013
by Roxanne Buchholz, Studio Creative Team Manager

Our monthly product special for September is a 10% savings on all sizes of scrap pages and 11 x 14 prints. So, to help you get started with your scrap pages this month, we have designed an 8 x 8 gray-scale scrap page named “Sweet Story Design Map,” template 111364, which we gave to all the Studio Creative Team members to play with. We asked them to maintain the same text, photos, and embellishment placements but to select papers, embellishments, and word art of their choice. Some designers went with a traditional route, using flowers and pastel colors, while others chose fresh, geometric patterns and bright colored palettes. If you were to use this design map, what would you do?
“Sweet Story Design Map” by Cynthia Coulon, template 111364; “Sweet Story by Roxanne” by Roxanne Buchholz, template 111433; “Sweet Story by Sara” by Sara Wise, template 112440; “Sweet Story by Kelsi” by Kelsi Kunz, template 111578; “Sweet Story by Kari” by Kari Pieratt, template 111382; “Sweet Story by Michelle” by Michelle Bell, template 111622; “Sweet Story by Cassie” by Cassie Balser, template 112302; and “Sweet Story by Leanne” by Leanne Reist-Barr, template 111441.

We had so much fun letting you try your hand at designing with last month’s design map that we decided to do it again. Show us “Your Style, Your Way” using September’s design map featured above. All you need to do is get Template 111364 from our Template Gallery and begin working on your own design, keeping the same text, photo, and embellishment placements, just as our designers did above. But with this challenge, we’re letting you use your own photos and theme so go ahead and show us what you’ve got!


Once you have your “Sweet Story” design map completed, please go to the Heritage Makers Facebook page, click on the “Show and Tell” button and post your entry under the “September Design Map” tab. Then on September 30, the Home Office will choose a winner from all of the entries and award the winner 50 points! Have fun and we can’t wait to see what your style is!
