5/23 Tuesday Newsletter Challenge

23 May 2016 - 06:13 AM

This week we are focusing on designer Veronica Spriggs. Veronica has a beautiful vintage style that works well with heritage layouts, as well as more modern layouts.  Take a stroll though Veronica's store in the ScrapGirls Boutique and you will find a treasure trove of gorgeous collections.

Your Newsletter Challenge is simple: use supplies from Veronica Spriggs in your layout this week.  (The real challenge will be deciding which products to use- they are all so lovely!)  Once your layout is finished upload it to the Weekly Newsletter Challenge gallery
so we can leave you some love.  Don't forget to also post in the Challenge Chase thread to earn your monthly coupon.

5/10 Tuesday Newsletter Challenge

This week's Newsletter Challenge is to create a picture within a picture. This technique is great for highlighting portions of your photo so they stand out from the whole photo. There are lots of fun ways to do this: frame just a part of your photo, selective coloring, and creative cropping, just to name a few.

Once you have created your layout, upload it to the
Weekly Newsletter Challenge Gallery  so we can leave you some love. Don't forget to post it in the Challenge Chase  thread, as well, so you can earn your monthly coupon!

Weekly Newsletter Challenge 4/4/2016

04 April 2016 - 06:10 AM

This week's Newsletter Challenge focuses on embossing. There is a great tutorial by April on the blog to give you some tips . Embossing is a subtle technique that adds great impact to a layout. As April's tutorial shows, you can emboss brushes, word art, templates - just about anything that you can think of! 

Your challenge today is to use embossing somewhere on your layout. There are a couple of handy styles in the Boutique to help you with this challenge, but you don't have to use them if you would prefer to use another method.
