Thursday Challenge 2-26-15

26 February 2015 - 03:26 AM

This week we’re focusing on the theme of metamorphosis. I found this definition of metamorphosis on the internet: “A change of the form or nature of a thing or person into a completely different one, by natural or supernatural means.” Some synonyms are: transformation, mutation, transmutation,change, alteration, conversion, modification, reconstruction.

When I think of metamorphosis, I simply think of change. Easy peasy. So, for today’s challenge I would like you to create a layout depicting some sort of change in nature. Any subject of nature will work: animals, birds,plants, even weather. Just be sure to have fun and upload your pages to the Thursday Challenge Gallery, so we can all ooooh and ahhhh over them.


Here are a few great nature themed products:

This week we are focusing on the theme of love, and with Valentine’s Day just a few days away, today’s challenge will be to create a love themed greeting card. This could be a Valentine, a Thinking of You, or any greeting card as long as it conveys a message of love. Your card can be either digital or hybrid.


If you need help with creating a card, there are a lot of wonderful products in the Cards and Crafts Templates and Assemble Your Own Cards sections of the boutique. Be sure not to miss the 35% off sale on Valentines and Love categories, on sale through 2-14-15. If you need some inspiration, see the Scrap Girls Greeting Cards Gallery for some ideas.


Also, here are two great card making tutorials by April Martell:

Have fun and be sure to upload your finished cards to the Thursday Challenge Gallery. I’ll be looking forward to seeing lots of love! ♥ ♥ ♥





February 2015 Atc Challenge & Swap

01 February 2015 - 07:32 PM

Hello and Happy February!!


Well, February makes me think of love and Valentine's Day, and they make me think of the colors red, pink and white. So, let's say for this month's swap you can create your cards using the theme of your choice, just use one of these colors or a combination of them: red, pink, white and if you would like to, you can also use black. You could make your cards with all red or all pink, or red and pink, or red and white or pink, white and black, etc., etc. Get the idea? So that's it for this month's theme: Red, pink, white, black. :)


You may create as many cards as you would like, just please remember to sign and date each card. Upload them to the Artist Trading Cards - Digital & Hybrid Gallery and email the full resolution copy (750 x 1050 pixels at 300 ppi) to me at: scrapgirl.teecee@gmail.com for the swap. The cards will be due to me by Saturday February 28th, and I'll try to post a new challenge on or around Sunday March 1st.


If you need extra help creating your cards, here are some great products made especially for ATCs:
