Design Team Inspiration with Queen & Co!

Happy Friday! This is it - the end of summer vacation! I can hardly believe it. Where did the time go? I will be back on school schedule next week! I know many of you still have another month or so of summer vacation left, so enjoy it while you can!

I have a little Design Team Inspiration for you to kick off your weekend! Designers Andra Hoffman and Leah Schaeffer have been playing with the Queen & Co. Wild Things collection and have created some really fun layouts! Check it out:

Mountain Views by Leah Schaeffer

Leah saw "camping" when she saw this collection and decided to create a couple of layouts from her recent camping trip to Yosemite National Park. I just love how her title fit so perfectly in between those trees on the paper! Here is a close-up:

That raccoon she created with her Cricut is too cute and works perfectly with her theme!

Nuts 4 Nature by Leah Schaeffer

Here is another layout Leah created using the Queen & Co. Wild Things papers. I love the earthy feel of this layout - perfect for her theme!

Here is a cute little critter with a large acorn Leah added to conceal her journaling! Isn't this just the best idea?

I absolutely love it!

Now let's see what Andra did with the same collection!

Helping Papa by Andra Hoffman

I love all the green in this layout! The perfect background for her theme! Everything just comes together so well on this layout! Checkout how Andra used her i-Rock to outline her journaling - it really helps it stand out and gives the whole look such a nice finishing touch.

9 Months by Andra Hoffman

I love the contrast of the colors in this layout! The added bling on the 9 adds the perfect finishing touch and I just love this picture of Andra's grandson! Isn't he just too cute?

Have a fantastic weekend and stay-tuned next week for more inspiration, new products coming soon from CHA and, of course, more giveaways! Don't forget to enter our Bo Bunny Win It Before You Can Buy it Giveaway!
