Alright ladies, I'm stuck. My PS spellchecker is set for UK English instead of American English. Any ideas how to switch it back?


2015-05-23 Weekend Challenge

23 May 2015 - 10:33 AM

In years past, we did a “What's in Your Purse?” challenge where we emptied the contents of our purse, took pictures, and made a layout. For this weekend's challenge, let do a “What's in Your Fridge?” challenge. Journal about the contents of your fridge. You could talk about the staples, items that are always in there, or maybe the party that you're preparing for. Or, perhaps your fridge is habitually empty because you're never home. You can take photos of the entire fridge, or just the items that you're journalling about. What ever angle you want to take is fine, but let's capture this season in our lives from a unique perspective...the refrigerator.

 

When you are finished please post your completed layout in the Weekend Challenge Gallery for all of us to see and leave a link here in this thread.

 

If you need inspiration, there's a whole section in the Boutique the get you going: Cooking & Food.

 

Here are a few of my favorites:

Autumn Spice Collection Mini

Cherry On Top Collection Biggie

Cocktail Hour Embellishment Mini

Fruit Stand Collection

Pappas Pizza Collection Mini

ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Sweet Tooth

Viva Mexico Collection

Lemonade Stand Collection

 

I took my pictures. I'll be back later with my layout. Enjoy!


2015-05-09 Weekend Challenge

09 May 2015 - 08:00 AM

This weekend's challenge is an Art Inspiration Challenge. I want you to find something that reminds you of your mother (or grandmother, or special mother figure, etc.) and use that as inspiration to create your layout.

 

In my case, I took a picture of a quilt that my grandmother made for me from her fabric scraps. The part that I'm using as my inspiration is a piece of fabric that reminds me of the shirts she used to wear. Any item will do, a chair that you like the lines of, a trinket that reminds you of a particular collection, a flower that was her favorite color. Be sure to include a snapshot of the item that inspires you and tell us about it.

 

When you are finished, please post your completed layout in the Weekend Challenge Gallery for all of us to see and leave a link here in this thread.

2015-04-22 Thursday Challenge

22 April 2015 - 08:51 PM

Yesterday was Earth Day, an annual event on which events worldwide are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection (Wikipedia). For today's challenge, let's focus on the color GREEN. Some possible ways to use the color green in your layout are:

  • as your dominant color, with pops of orange or red for interest.

  • as an accent that draws your eye to the important element of your page, perhaps your journaling.

  • as a series of accents that draws the viewer's eye through the page; think triangles, odd numbers of embellishments, and the rule-of-thirds.

 

If you need some inspiration, here are some kits that might help:

 

To Love The Earth Collection Mini

Luscious Linens Earth Paper Mini

Be Natural Paper

For Spacious Skies Collection

Scuffed Collection

Reinvent Collection

Emerald Collection Super Mini

Peridot Pleasures Collection Mini

Tree Of Life Collection

Golfing Collection Mini

 

When you're finished with your layouts, upload them to the Thursday Challenge Gallery. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

 

I'll post mine later. I have a few tweaks yet. :)
