Weekend Challenge 1/30/16

29 January 2016 - 10:53 PM

Wow, we're almost one month down in 2016, how did THAT happen? 

For my last Weekend Challenge we scrapped a Holiday photo, for this one I’d like you to use the first photo you took in 2016.  You can use your first camera or phone shot - it’s up to you, but I’d like to see your first photo of the New Year on a page. 

As an added challenge see if you can add a bit of “bling” to your layout in honor of 2016!

When you are finished, please post your completed layout in the Weekend Challenge Gallery for all of us to see.  I can’t wait to see what you create!

 

Here's my layout

Happy New Year

 

 


Weekend Challenge 1/16/16

15 January 2016 - 10:37 PM

I can’t believe it’s already three weeks since Christmas!  I’m already so involved in the New Year that I just realized I haven’t scrapped one Christmas photo, nor used one piece of my new Holiday scrapbook materials.  So, that is our Weekend Challenge - to scrap your favorite 2015 Christmas photo or memory.   

As an added challenge, see if you can use one of your new purchases on your page.  

When you are finished, please post your completed layout in the Weekend Challenge Gallery

for all of us to see.  I can’t wait to share in your favorite Holiday moment!

 

Here's my layout:

Weekend Challenge 12/19/15

19 December 2015 - 05:54 AM

This week we have been focusing on Romantic Christmas movies and creating layouts focusing on love and romance.   We’ve used hearts and loving words on our pages and for today’s challenge I’d like you to put it all together and make a romantic Holiday card.   If you are not fond of card making or scrapping in smaller sizes, you can include your “card” on a layout or make an e-card to be emailed to someone special.  

Please post your completed card in the Weekend Challenge Gallery. 

I can't wait to see what you create!     :)

Love You Card


Weekend Challenge 12/5/15

05 December 2015 - 05:17 AM

This week we’ve been focusing on Classic Christmas movies.   “Classic” is defined by WIctionary.org as “Exhibiting timeless quality” and what’s more classic than the traditional colors of Christmas?    So for today I challenge you to create a layout using the classic Christmas colors of RED, GREEN and GOLD.    

When you are finished, please post your layout in the Weekend Challenge Gallery.  

I can’t wait to see what you create!     :xmastree: 

Here's my layout:

"Tis the Season"


Thursday Challenge November 17, 2015

19 November 2015 - 05:16 AM

This week we’ve been focusing on using buttons in our layouts and the possibilities in design and choice are endless.  But, buttons are not just for fastening or decoration, they can also give a glimpse into parts of ourselves - picture campaign, promotional or inspirational buttons you can pin to your clothing or totes. 

So, for today’s challenge we are going to make our own button to use on our page.   Do you have a favorite saying?  Or maybe your layout needs a bit of explanation but you’re short on journaling.  

To make your button - first create a circle by clicking on the Ellipse Tool (it’s nested with the Custom Shape Tool, shortcut U).  Then, while holding the shift key draw your “ellipse” (circle). The shift key makes the ellipse a circle.  Now you can color, decorate, add words, title or word art to your button.   Adding a bevel or style like Syndee’s “Flair” or "Bubble and Glass" will give it a more realistic look. 

You can also use a ready-made, plain round button and personalize it to fit your theme.  Add your button to your layout and upload to the Thursday Challenge Gallery.  I can’t wait to see what you create!

 

Here's my layout -

"I'm 7!!!"

 

Special thanks to Diane (Florida Granny) for help with making circles and to Jody for fixing my layout.
