Tuesday "right Now" Challenge 5/19/15

19 May 2015 - 09:01 AM

Let’s continue our monthly “Right Now” challenge series by focusing on one of my favorite things…. FOOD!   For today’s challenge, I want you to scrap about the food and/or meals you are eating today.   What was for breakfast?  What are you planning for cook for dinner/supper?   Did your family have any entertaining moments or stories at mealtime?   Did you go out to eat with anyone special?    

The idea behind these “Right Now” challenges is to capture everyday life, so try to stay current rather than scrapping about past holidays.  

Grab your camera, snap some pictures in the kitchen or at the dining table, and then create your layout!   I can’t wait to see what tasty meals our members enjoyed today.


This week, Marlene is offering a FREE paper mini with purchase of her Gourmet Kitchen collection, which is on sale!!  I encourage you to use these for your layout. 


For additional inspiration, visit the Cooking & Food section of the Boutique.  Several of the collections in this category are on sale right now to help you along!  


Post your tasty layouts in the Tuesday Newsletter Challenge Gallery for all of us to see!


Here is mine:   Dessert for Dinner

Tues. Newsletter Challenge 5/5

05 May 2015 - 08:15 AM

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, so our layout challenges this week will be centered around moms.    


The theme for today’s challenge is “Moments with Mom.”  Do you and your mom (or your own children) like to participate in the same types of hobbies and interests? Or perhaps there are special places or outings you like to visit together. Create a layout about of your favorite shared moments of togetherness with your mom.  


As an added twist, also pick a font that reminds you of your mother and use it somewhere on your layout. 

Explain in your layout description why you chose that font.

For font possibilities, check out the Boutique: http://store.scrapgirls.com/Fonts/


Post your completed layouts in the Newsletter Challenge Gallery.



Monday Random Challenge 4/20

20 April 2015 - 08:51 AM

It's time for another Ad Inspiration Challenge, where I'll share a print/web advertisement and challenge you to use use it for inspiration for your layout. You can be inspired by the ad's colors, subject matter, layout, shapes... whatever sparks your creativity!


For today's ad, I moved away from magazines and went hunting online for cool/creative advertising campaigns.  This one immediately caught my attention.   It has many elements that can be used as the basis for your layout:

When you are finished, post your ad-inspired layout in the Monday Random Challenge Gallery.

Monday Random Challenge 4/6

06 April 2015 - 08:22 AM

Advertisements are everywhere - in magazines, on websites, on billboards. These ads can be great sources for scraplifting inspiration, if you stop to look! That's exactly what we'll be doing this month in my Monday Random Challenges.

Each week, I'll post a different advertisement, and I challenge you to use use it for inspiration for for your layout.   You can be inspired by the ad's colors, subject matter, layout, shapes... whatever sparks your creativity. 


Here is this week's ad:

This ad immediately reminded me of the Project Life and Photo Book templates we have in the boutique:

ScrapSimple Digital Layout Album Templates: Picture a Day

Value Pack: Week 52 Templates 3

ScrapSimple Digital Layout Album Templates: Digi Pocket Page Protectors 3

ScrapSimple Digital Layout Album Templates: 12x12 Pocket pageGrids Maxi 7

(Just to name a few)


But you don't have to take your layout in this direction.  Instead, you might find inspiration in the colors, swirls, or other elements. 



When you are finished, post your ad-inspired layout in the Monday Random Challenge Gallery.


I can't wait to see what elements of the advertisement inspired you!
