Challenge Spotlight September 9th

This is an extra special Mini Kit Challenge this month! Paula from Keystone Scraps made a special mini kit about the Ice Bucket Challenge. Not only will your layout count towards your 10 challenge layouts, Paula will donate $1.00 for every layout posted in the thread. If you didn’t throw a bucket of ice water on your head, then scrap a great layout using the mini anyway and post it in the thread. You will be scrapping for a cause! You can also buy the mini (instead of just downloading for free) and all sales will go to ALS research.

Remember, if you didn’t do the ice bucket challenge, no worries! The blues in the kit work well for lots of pages! Here are a few submissions posted. Some are about the ice bucket challenge and some are off topic. Remember any layout you make with this kit and post in the thread, Paula will donate $1!!!

So Hot!

The first of the month always means a brand new buffet too! I am always eager to see what the fabulous designers come up with every month and I love seeing what people make with the kits. The best way to show off your LO is to submit it to the Buffet Challenge! This challenge is a great one to complete first especially since all Buffet kits are 50% off until September 5th!

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!


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:

First Night

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