Weekend Challenge 3-14-15

14 March 2015 - 12:46 AM

This week we’ve been concentrating on the Out of Bounds technique. So, for the weekend challenge I would like you create a layout outside of your own boundaries. By that I mean I would like you to take a step or two out of your comfort zone and do something you aren’t 100% comfortable or familiar with.

 

Examples: Perhaps you don’t usually use brushes because you’re afraid of them, or you aren’t comfortable using templates because you don’t know how to use them. Maybe you don’t use a particular tool because you aren’t familiar with how to use it, but you would like to be able to. Other examples could include mixing patterned papers, using ScrapSimple products, or using actions or layer styles.

 

This weekend I want you to think of a tool, technique, product, or method you aren’t completely comfortable scrapping with and use it to complete a page.

 

Now please don’t get scared and run away and hide. When I think about it, probably 99% of the time when I’ve been “afraid” to use a new tool or technique, I found that once I jump in, play with it a little and get to know how to use it, I end up mastering it and loving it!  Then it becomes a favorite ♥

 

Also, if you need extra help, feel free to post questions in this thread, or PM or email me: scrapgirl.teecee@gmail.com

 

I want this to be a fun experience for you, and I bet you will be very proud of yourself when your lovely layout is completed… 

Be sure to upload your pages to the Weekend Challenge Gallery, and explain what you did to come outside of your own bounds.  Remember to post a link in this thread and above all, have fun!


March Atc Challenge & Swap

01 March 2015 - 08:08 PM

Hello everyone! We're going to do something a little out of the ordinary for this month's swap. I was looking at my fun monthly and weekly observances calendar and I noticed the International Festival of Owls takes place this month. I never even knew there was such a thing, but here's a link if you would like more information about it: International Festival of Owls,

 

So with that in mind, I think it would be fun to create our ATCs around the theme of owls.

 

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 Tuesday March 31st, and I'll try to post a new challenge on or around Wednesday April 1st.

 

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

ATC Backgrounds Paper Biggie
ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: ATC Shadows 12601
ScrapSimple Craft Templates: Artist Trading Cards
ScrapSimple Craft Templates: Artist Trading Cards 2

Also, don't forget that with a little bit of re-sizing, many of the Pocket Life products may be used for ATCs.

 

Have fun! I can't wait to see your owl ATCs! :)


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:

Thursday Challenge 2-12-15

12 February 2015 - 02:18 AM

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.
