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

We drew our sketch as always

Here are the layouts created by our design team to give you some inspiration. Please click on the names to be taken to the relevant blogs.

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?
