  1. Pretending that I was creating this page in paper scrapping made me appreciate digital even more! I found myself constantly wanting to blend and not happy with the boxy/clear cut lines of “paper” and the possibilities for creative scrapping were so much less! Even though I did use shadows, figuring that paper would be normally shadowed, somehow the layout looks flat. I used a one-paper background and elements that I thought of as paper stickers. Not my favorite layout by far - bring on PSE! For this layout I used: SNU SS Styles: Shadow Me SDE Make it Bloom Collection and my own photo

    Your photo is so special and I’m glad to see it close-up; in the NL I thought that was one of your daughters, but it’s you!

    Wow, for sure they do grow up fast, but just from seeing her on SG I can’t believe Kirsten will be a Senior! Really sweet photo and your background and embellishments are so pretty.

    What a sweet photo of little Kirsten and I love having tea parties; yours must have been so much fun! I like how all the pink in your page matches her dress and your embellishments are so cute! PS your masking is awesome.

    June Monthly Challenges

    It’s June and almost half of 2019 is over - amazing! Here are the June Monthly Challenges which can be completed at any time during the month. Please remember to post your layouts in the Monthly Challenge Gallery and then add a link to each page in this thread so that we can leave some love. You can use your June Monthly Challenge Layouts for the June Challenge Chase so be sure to also post a link in that thread so you are eligible for the monthly coupon. Don’t forget to leave comments on other members pages. Have fun! Challenge #1: Leave Some Love I don’t know about you, but I enjoy reading other members’ comments on my pages and I like writing comments on theirs. For this challenge you must leave at least one comment per day on a layout and post a link to it here in this thread. You don’t have to leave one comment each day and can do more than one each day as long as you have 30 by the end of the month. At the end of this month you should have 30 comments, but it’s ok if you have more! *** Please leave ALL of your links in one post (see my example here in the next post). For instance after you leave your first link for each subsequent one you should “edit” that post so that all of your links are in ONE post. That will make it easier to track and ensure that you are credited for the challenge at the end of the month. When you finish this challenge, don’t forget to post in the June Challenge Chase thread! Challenge #2: Scrap a Sequence For this challenge you must scrap at least 3 photos that show a sequence of events. For example you could scrap a child jumping in a pool - before during and after or a nest, egg and baby bird. Remember the photos must be a SEQUENCE of happenings, not 3 separate photos. Challenge #3: Create in Pastel For this challenge you will be creating a page in pastel colors. You can use pastel papers, embellishments and a photo in pastel hues or you can apply a treatment to make your photos that way. However you do it, your layout must show mostly pastel shades. Challenge #4: Show us Your Postcards For this challenge you will be scrapping a place you’ve been or a place you’d like to go — postcard style! Tips for making postcards: Create a 8” x 6” and scrap your place. You can then post as is or place the postcard on a larger page and scrap it, but any way you do it your card should resemble a postcard. Remember a postcard should show a place and it’s name and anything else you’d like to include! I’ll be posting my layouts as I complete them and leave links in this thread too!

    NL Challenge Bo tractor

    Bo is so adorable and so are your photos. I like the colors and pieces you used here and it really looks like both a wonderfully traditional page, yet great enough for scrapbooking. Much better than mine came out!
  16. This sounds really good and easy to make! I like your card and your blending looks great.

    What cute photos of your dog and I enjoyed your journaling. The background and patterned paper you used looks really great with your photos and the swirl is a nice touch.

    paper scrapping

    What a great photo and so pretty! I enjoyed your notes, it’s so true about paper scrapping and how expensive it could be. I remember being so amazed when I started digital that I could use pieces over and over! I like your elegant framing and folded paper and how you tied this all up, it’s lovely!

    Engaged and Happy

    Such happy faces and beautiful photos and I learned something new about traditional scrapping, I’d never heard of wood embellishments. Probably just as well. 😀

    Tuesday Newsletter Challenge 6/18/2019

    Wow Debby that’s so cool and must have made it a bit easier to paper scrap as one of the things I disliked about it was having to drag out all those materials and then put them away again!

    Tuesday Paper Scrap Challenge

    How cool that you still have these photos from your paper scrapping days. I love that you scrapped it now as if in a book and it sure looks like a fun time, theme and costumes too! I also really like the paper scrapping tool embellishments you used.

    That’s a good idea, Conda! I had a hard time not blending on my page; it made me realize how often I do in digital scrapping and how much I enjoy it. And how much I love digital scrapping. Here’s mine - Wildflowers
