Topics I've Started

Tuesday Newsletter Challenge

25 August 2015 - 08:34 AM

Parting is such sweet sorrow - we have to say goodbye to some fabulous collections. But something good always comes from this. Today, I challenge you to use a retiring project that you have used before, but in a new, different way.


For example, if you used it to make an art journal page before or a regular page, try doing a regular layout, or a Pocket Life page, or a greeting card, or Art Journaling page. There are so many ways to say goodbye, and so many ways to use one collection.


Please upload your new - retiring product - layout to the Newsletter Challenge Gallery! so we can all bid it farewell with our compliments.


So I made a card - using 2 retiring products in combination. Here is my card: You're Invited to so any layout with a retiring product, or two, or three....it's your choice.

So Tired

21 August 2015 - 11:38 AM

An old tired-looking dog wanders into a guy's yard. He examines the dog's collar and feels his well-fed belly and knows the dog has a home.
The dog follows him into the house, goes down the hall, jumps on the couch, gets comfortable and falls asleep. The man thinks its rather odd, but lets him sleep. After about an hour the dog wakes up, walks to the door and the guy lets him out. The dog wags his tale and leaves.
The next day the dog comes back and scratches at the door. The guy opens the door, the dog comes in, goes down the hall, jumps on the couch, gets comfortable and falls asleep again. The man lets him sleep. After about an hour the dog wakes up, walks to the door and the guy lets him out. The dog wags his tale and leaves.
This goes on for days. The guy grows really curious, so he pins a note on the dog's collar: "Your dog has been taking a nap at my house every day."
The next day the dog arrives with another note pinned to his collar: "He lives in a home with four children -- he's trying to catch up on his sleep. Can I come with him tomorrow?

Tuesday 8/11/15 Challenge

11 August 2015 - 12:11 AM

I am posting this a bit early since I am on the road and in my hotel room, and will be on the road really early in the morning.

We all travel or have to go to new places, and I'm sure we all need maps at some time or other, whether it be real paper maps, GPS maps on your mobile device, or your GPS in the car. So today, your challenge is to incorporate a map into your layout in a unique or creative way. You can either use a real map, photo of a map, a digital map (from the Internet) or a map-themed SG product.

Please post your layout in the Newsletter Challenge Gallery - with a link to your layout here in the Forum so we can see your creative use of a map.


Here are a few collections that have maps included:

Monday 07/13/15 Dream Challenge

13 July 2015 - 12:34 AM

This Monday I'd like you to do an Art Journal challenge.


1. You need to tell us of a beautiful dream you've had. It could be a dream you had while sleeping, or a real dream of something good that you have, or hope to have fulfilled. (It could also be a dream about a teen crush.)


2. Include lots of flowers.


3. Use the colors Green, Pink, White, Blue and Yellow - like the flowers found growing wild in a field.


Please post your layout in the  Monday Random Challenge Gallery.


I'm excited to see your 'dreams'.


Here is my AJ page My dream guy.
