Tuesday NL Challenge 5/17/16

16 May 2016 - 09:44 PM

This week’s Newsletter Challenge is a Sketch one which can be found HERE

on the ScrapGirls blog.  Remember that sketches are meant to be used as an inspiration for your layout and not copied exactly.  So have fun creating your page with  ideas from the sketch.  

When you are finished, please post your layout in the

Newsletter Challenge Gallery and post a link back here in the thread.

 

Don’t forget to post a link in the May Challenge Chase thread if you’re participating in that game, too.

I can’t wait to see where the sketch takes you.

Thanks to Andrea for creating a great sketch for us!  :)

Tuesday N L Challenge 5/3/16

02 May 2016 - 01:09 PM

This week we’re exploring how to mix patterns on a page.  Mixing patterns are a big trend in clothing this Spring (Autumn if in the Southern Hemisphere!) and I don’t know about you,

but this is one of the most difficult things for me to do when creating a scrapbook page.  

A wonderful tutorial by April Martell is a great help and you can find it here -

How to Use Patterns

 

Your page does not need to be a Heritage page but for today’s NL Challenge we’d like to see you use a bold mix of patterns on your layout using one of the techniques used in the tutorial. 

 

When it is completed please post it in the Weekly Newsletter Challenge Gallery and add a link in this thread.  

Don't forget to add your link to the May Challenge Chase Gallery too, once the chart is posted!

 

I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Weekend Challenge 2/20/16

20 February 2016 - 12:04 AM

For my past two Weekend Challenges we’ve scrapped a Holiday photo and then the first one you took in the New Year.   Amazingly we are now almost two months into 2016 and I’ve got tons of pics but not-so-many layouts finished.   For this week, I’d like you to scroll through your 2016 photos, find your favorite and scrap it.  It might be one taken with your camera, cell phone or even one someone sent you but it must be the one from this year that you are most fond of.   As an additional challenge, add at least one heart to your page to show how much you love it or a star to show its #1 status.     

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 photo!

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!

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!
