Challenge Spotlight August 26th

Happy last Tuesday of August! There’s only 5 more days to get those challenge layouts done for August’s collab! And today’s challenge I am spotlighting is the Template Challenge! There’s two a month! This template challenge was posted on the 16th and is hosted by Melissa of Lissykay Designs! Not only do you get a free template to play with, it counts towards your 10 challenges! Melissa made an awesome template for you to grab and create a fabulous layout with!

Everyone can put their own spin on the template, I love that even though everyone uses the same template to start, the results are so different and unique! Let’s take a look at a few of the submissions so far!

Busch-Gardens-Beauty-webLissaMac shifted the ribbon and the frame to the side, opening up more white space.

Beach Baby

Natalie C moved the ribbon down, switched out the circle for a square photo and then added another photo to the background!

friends

teamkobza blew up the circle and photo to really highlight the photo.

What kind of spin can you put on this great template?? Remember to post your layout to the template thread and track the number of challenge layouts here so it can be counted towards your total!

Challenge Spotlight August 19th

Today’s spotlight challenge is my favorite challenge, the Mix it Up Challenge! I know I usually spotlight this challenge every month but it is for good reason! No Mix it Up challenges are ever the same and I really love this months challenge! Rachel from Seatrout Scraps is the host and she has challenged us to make a layout using three different Gingerscraps Designers in a Layout! This can be a template from one, papers from another and the elements from a third or any combination! I normally only use a kit and a template so it was nice to throw in more from other kits!

This is my LO: I used Little Rad Trio, Aprilisa Designs and Pixelily Designs kits for my page:

Take a look at some of the other members layouts for this awesome challenge!

Challenge Spotlight August 5th

Happy August! My how the time has flied! Summer is almost over and school is about to start here in the states (well not for me since my son only 2). It’s also a new month so that means new challenges and a brand new collab!

There is also a BRAND NEW challenge! This challenge is brought to you by Kathryn Estry and it’s called the Pop Quiz Challenge! It’s today’s Challenge Spotlight! This is technically a two part challenge. First you answer the questions in the thread and then after you receive a PM from Kathryn detailing the instructions for your page based on your answers, post your completed LO back in the thread! Quite a few ladies have participated so far and here are a few layouts:

Shopping the MOA

Kleine avonturier

PS_-_GS_POP

Everyone has a different challenge based on their answers which makes this challenge pretty unique! Remember to record your completed challenge in the tracking thread! You definitely don’t want to miss out on the awesome collab!

Challenge Spotlight July 29th

There’s 3 days left to get the challenges done to receive this awesome collab kit. On Friday, there will be a new kit and new challenges!

This week’s spotlight is on my favorite challenge- the Mix it Up Challenge. I love this challenge because it’s never the same! This month, Jennifer of Little Rad Trio challenged us to take one of our very first digital scrapbooking attempts and re-make it! For this challenge you have to post the original layout and the new product. This may be embarrassing since no one wants to show off the very first layouts when you were just getting the hang of everything but this really shows how much you have grown! And you have a few more days to go! Get those challenges done!

Here is my submission to the challenge:

And here are a few others! The redone layout is linked to the gallery so please leave the ladies some love!

Look how much everyone has grown! Sometimes it’s fun to go through our old layouts just to see what techniques we have picked up. It’s nice to see how much you have progressed!
