Thursday Blog-Inspired Challenge 7/24

24 July 2014 - 07:07 AM

Happy Thursday!! 

 

I just love spending time on the blog here at ScrapGirls!  I really wish I had more time to spend there.  It's such a wealth of knowledge!!  Today's inspiration comes from this blog post by Angie Briggs about her layout design process.  I always LOVE Angie's layouts!!  In her process she talks about layout clusters and how she puts one together. Her clusters are some of my favorite products in the boutique, and I use them OFTEN!

 

Your challenge today is to create an embellishment cluster (or two or three!) on your layout!


When you finish your layout, post it to the SG Blog Challenge Layouts Gallery and post a link back in this thread.

Ahhh summertime!!  There is so much to love about summer, especially the picnics and outside get togethers.  (block parties, outdoor/backyard dinners, etc)

 

This month's theme is Picnic Foods.  What is your favorite thing to eat at a picnic?

Thursday Blog-Inspired Challenge 7/10

10 July 2014 - 07:46 AM


Happy Thursday Friends!!  It's still VERY wet here in the Midwest...will it ever dry up enough for us to work??
 
Today's challenge is inspired by this recent blog post:  Behind the Scenes: Cindy Rohrbough’s June ScrapSimple Club!
 
The blog post shows a glimpse behind scenes designing the scrap simple club.  I love seeing where the thoughts, ideas and inspiration come from.
 
Cindy was asked to describe her club in one word.  Here is here response:  

Hmmmm, that’s a tough one because there were several ideas that came together to make up this club. The painted artistic feel, nature and the outdoors and I also wanted it to be both pretty and playful for versatility when making layouts. Putting all those elements together I would say the overall feel is “Whimsical”.

 

 

Your challenge is to create a "whimsical" layout.  Whatever your interpretation of whimsical may be!
 

When you finish your layout, post it to the SG Blog Challenge Layouts Gallery and post a link back in this thread.

 


Thursday Blog-Inspired Challenge 7/3

03 July 2014 - 06:25 AM

Good Morning!!  It's a very cool morning here in Missouri!  I love this cooler weather...but I know it won't last long.
 
The inspiration for today's Thursday Blog-Inspired Challenge comes from this tutorial by Syndee Nuckles:  What Are Blending Modes.

So what are Blending Modes exactly?  Basically, Blending Modes give us different options for how our layers interact or blend with each other.

I don't know about you, but I find that I have so many wonderful tools to use, that sometimes I forget to use them!!  Blending modes are so versatile and so much fun to use!  
 
Your challenge is to use more than one blending mode on your layout and tell us what blending modes you used.
 
When you finish your layout, post it to the SG Blog Challenge Layouts Gallery and post a link back in this thread.
