    Hi Everyone! It's Liz's day! Wooo Hooo! This event isn't a usual traditional CHALLENGE but more of a scrap with the featured designer! It’s a fun event to just scrap with products from a fave designer or try a new (to you) designer. It’s all about having fun and celebrating the uniqueness of all of our Lilypad Designers!

    Liz's store is on sale - Check this out!

    Liz hosts a monthly MIS, aka Make It Snappy speed scrap. Her February one was the 4th, but one will be upcoming in March! Here's a link to the February one, so you can see how it's run! Lot's of fun! You can also keep an eye on the Blog to check out a monthly challenge there - here are the past ones!

    Here are some pages that I have made using Liz's products!

    I asked Liz a few questions to learn a little more about her! I always love learning a little about my fav designer!

    1. How were you first introduced to digital Scrapbooking?
    In 2008, after shortly moving to Western North Carolina, I made a new friend who introduced me to digital scrapbook and Photoshop. Before that I was an avid paper scrapbooker. I was 100% all in after she came over and taught me a little bit.

    2. How did you end up starting your own template line?
    Once I started playing around with digital scrapbooking I tried out some free templates. I did like using them, but when paper scrapbooking the layout was always the fun part for me. How should I lay out my page and showcase my photos? I decided pretty early on that I liked designing my own pages, and that's how I started making templates.

    3. What are your favorite items to scrap with on your pages?
    Stamps, buttons and word strips.

    4. Do you have a favorite template pack?
    That's a hard choice. Probably any of my Simple & Sweet sets. I also like using my Artsy Journal Templates.

    5. Do you have a least favorite template pack, but it's a big seller and the customers like it?
    Hmmm, when I'm creating I usually love what I'm making and then sometimes after it's in the store awhile I have different feelings about it. One of those sets is Musically Inclined. I think it's the colors or something. I really want to retire them and revamp them, but they are a big seller! Maybe I should just make another set?

    6. What do you think of garden gnomes?
    The first thing I think of when I think of garden gnomes is a little ice cream shop that used to be in our town, and when our oldest girls were little we would go get ice cream and sit out in the garden area and the girls loved the gnome. So I guess you could say I have sentimental feelings toward garden gnomes.

    7. What actress would play you in a movie?
    Oh goodness. I don't know much about popular actresses. It would have to be someone who is mom-like, and kind of funny (or at least she thinks she is). Any ideas?

    And here is a picture of her and her beautiful family!

    Today, we have a challenge for you. Since we all LOVE Liz and her templates... we are going to combine two of them!

    1. Create a new layout for this challenge combining two of Liz's templates into one scrapbook page.
    2. Please let me know which 2 templates you used.
    3. Comply with The Lilypad Galley Guidelines. This is noted at the top of the gallery, and states: "GALLERY RULES: Layouts must contain at least 50% TLP products. (Templates count as 15%.) Uploads must be less than 250k. List all credits; no off-site linking allowed."
    4. Share your layout in this thread.
    5. Challenge will close at midnight Sunday, February 19, 2023.

    Those who complete the challenge will be eligible for another amazing coupon to use at a later date from Liz!


    Trina created an example page for me! Thank you @Trina!!

    I would probably have to quit scrapping entirely without Liz's templates. I love them ALL and especially that they are so varied. But, of course my FAVORITES are the Artsy Journal templates. I think I have every single set and have used almost all of them in each set. :giggle

    I'm also a SWL groupie. I still have some of her blog freebies from 2008.

    @Scrapping with Liz When it comes to Musically Inclined, please create another one!!! I could definitely use more.

    I love SwL templates, actually my gallery is full of pages using her templates. I've had a very busy month, but I'm gonna try to find time to sit down and scrap my page.

    I wasn't sure if combining two templates into a double page spread would count so I'll hold off on that until later ;)

    I combined a Scatter Star template with a So Selfie template
