Monday Random Challenge 8/24//2015

24 August 2015 - 06:05 AM

My kiddos went back to school today - hooray! And at the same time, boo! I love having them home, but I like the routine that the school year forces on us (we tend to be a bit lazy during the summer). For me, "summer" is over once they go back to school, no matter what the calendar says and I start looking forward to fall. 

For today's Random Challenge, scrap your favorite summer memory, preferably from this year, but any year is fine. Once you finish your layout, upload it to the Random Challenge Gallery.

My Dad is coming over in the morning, so I am posting early so I don't forget!


The 15th is one of my two favorite days of the month here at ScrapGirls- ScrapSimple Club Day!  Let's celebrate by using ScrapSimple products today.  Use any 3 ScrapSimple products in your layout- they don't have to be part of the club, they can be any templates, brushes, actions or styles, whatever you love most!  If you have any questions using ScrapSimple products post them in this thread and we'll be happy to help you.  Once your layout is finished post it in the Monday Random Challenge Gallery.


If you haven't seen the awesome new SSClub for August, check it out in the boutique...SSClub

It’s National Watermelon Day! I love watermelon, I could eat it every day and often do during the summer. I never knew it had its own holiday, though. Your challenge today is to use at least three colors from this watermelon-inspired color palette that I found on the Internet.  Post your layout to the Random Challenge Gallery so we can salivate over your creations!







Weekend Challenge 6/27

27 June 2015 - 07:09 AM

For most of us the weather is warm enough for flip flops and sandals, finally!  I know I love to look down at my little summer tootsies and see some color on them!  The color varies depending on my mood, anything goes from pale pinks to bright blues, glitter or no glitter, the possibilities are endless.

For your challenge today I want you to use your favorite nail polish color as your inspiration.  It doesn't have to be the one that's on right now, just your general fave.  If you are not a toe nail painter, don't let that stop you from joining us!  You can do a layout using the natural color of your toe nails. 

Post your finished layouts in the Weekend Challenge Gallery.

Weekend Challenge 6/13

This week we have been using Pocket Life Cards in our layouts, but what happens when you don't have a co-ordinating card to go with your collection?  Lucky for you it is very easy and lots of fun to make your own Pocket Life cards!  (It is very similar to making ATC cards, for those of you who enjoy making those.)

I found 2 wonderful tutorials on the blog that walk you through making your own cards from scratch:


Make Your Own Pocket Life Journal Cards!

Creating Custom Journaling Cards

We also have some great templates and brushes in the boutique to help you get started:


Brush Set: Scrap It Monthly Calendar 2015 Biggie

ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Right Now Infographic Pocket Life Cards

Brush Set: Pocket Life Artsy Week

ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Life Stories

ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Pocket Life - Week In Review Biggie

For your challenge today, I would like you to make at least one original Pocket Life card to match your layout.  It doesn't have to be a date card, it can be anything you would like- an accent, word art, journaling- whatever your layout needs. Post your finished layouts in the Weekend Challenge Gallery so we can leave you some love!
