P is for Punchouts

This month we've chosen this stunning layout by Stacy Cohen.


Stacy says:
Hi everyone!  I’m Stacy Cohen.  I live in Los Angeles, California with my loving husband, our two wonderful little daughters, and two sweet kitties.  My girls are the inspiration for all my creative projects . . . I call them my little ‘muses’.  I started scrapbooking in September of 2004 and I have been hooked ever since.  Scrapbooking is my hobby, passion and creative outlet.  I always say, “It’s cheaper than therapy!” 

I’m a very slow scrapper, often spending several nights on one layout.  I love to fuss over all the little details and get everything just right.  I would define my scrapping style as romantic with a touch of shabby chic, though I love to change it up from time to time and play around with different scrapping styles. My work has been published in various magazines, and I was a Creating Keepsakes magazine Dream Team member from 2011 through 2013. You can visit my blog at www.stacycohen.blogspot.com



We drew our sketch as always

We also have a guest designer this month - Denise Holmes -



"Hi I’m Denise. I’m married with three grown up sons and 2 sheltie dogs who are often the subjects of my scrapbook pages. 
I work full time in an  Accountant’s and can generally be found crafting whenever I get a spare moment.
I've always loved crafty things, I started making cards in 2006 and concentrated more on scrapbooking after attending my first crop, when I discovered I could create beautiful memories for myself, have fun and make friends in the process!
 I love creating mini books, tags and other projects as well as layouts. I really enjoy messing about with distress inks, mists & rubber stamps, and often incorporate these into my layouts. I’m definitely an inky type of crafter!"


So, who will be first this month?
