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!

Challenge Spotlight July 15th

Happy Tuesday! There are 16 days left to complete 10 challenges for an awesome collab kit! One challenge, the Scraplift Challenge is a great one to complete! This challenge is hosted by Inspired Designs this month. She provided this layout for you to put your own personal spin on!

Now you could scraplift the colors, the theme, the two photos, clusters, etc. The great thing about this challenge is it is your personal spin. So far look at the layouts that have been submitted:

Nancy made this LO where she used two photos but added more of the paper layering under the photo instead of on the sides.

4th Parade

Lisa provided her take, there’s two photos, layering of the background paper but the framing is on the second photo and they are not the same shape.

This layout by another Lisa has two photos but one is in black and white and one is in color. There’s layering but it goes down to the bottom of the page and that’s where she decided to journal. All these layouts were inspired by the first one but they are all so unique and different!

Remember once you have completed and uploaded your LO to the gallery and to the challenge thread, make sure you record your entry in the July Tracking Thread. With 10 challenges done, you will receive this very lovely collab after the 5th of next month.

Have a great week!

Challenge Spotlight July 1st

It’s the first of the month which means a whole new month of challenges! And a brand new challenge reward! Completing 10 challenges gets you this awesome kit! But I have a challenge for you! I challenge you to work on a challenge you don’t normally do or you have never done before. I plan to take on the Scraplift Challenge. It’s not normally on the 10 I do per month. But since it is the first of the month, the Buffet Challenge is always full of great layouts!

I love the buffet colors this month! Even though to most American’s the buffet screams patriotism, the great designers had great ideas for the color that went beyond Independence day. This is a great challenge to complete! Especially if you bought multiple kits like I did!

I hope you have a great week and a great holiday weekend!
