    Quilts are works of art that are both useful and beautiful at the same time. This month for Kim Jensen's designer challenge we are going to make a page or project with a quilt style background made with Kim's beautiful papers. I've designed a free template to help everyone with this. You can find it in Kim's store HERE.
    Add Photos and elements as you like to make a scrapbook page on top of the background made with Kim's papers, or make a card, etc. Feel free to get creative and use the template as you like, but make sure it is still recognizable in your final project. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

    Make sure you are signed up for Kim's newsletter if you need to stock up on her beautiful papers, as she will be offering a special coupon on them to her newsletter subscribers throughout the month. You can sign up for that HERE.

    Rules:
    Use at least 75% Kim Jensen Designs product (current or retired from TLP) to create your layout meeting the criteria listed above.
    Upload your layout to the Kim Jensen gallery. Please include your credits.
    Post your layout to this thread and link to your gallery post.
    Layouts must be new for this challenge and cannot be combined with other challenges.
    All layouts must be posted by 11:59pm PDT, August 31, 2020.

    Prizes:
    One layout will be chosen to receive a $10 coupon for Kim Jensen Designs’ shop!
    All other participants will receive a 20% off coupon for Kim Jensen Designs’ shop!
    You may enter multiple layouts to increase your odds of winning the $10 prize, but each scrapper will only receive one coupon.

    Here is how some members of Kim's Team used the template.
    Melinda: I used papers from Vibrant, Eight Nights, Girl Friday, and Pieces of You

    Since I always think of quilts and winter together, I used a wintery theme and photo.

    Someone sent me this poem and wanted to share it. This background template made a perfect backdrop. I decided to use bright colors.

    Love how the template was so easy to work with! I removed the shadow on the grid so it looks more like a quilt. Thanks!
