Challenge Spotlight – Font Challenge

Well hey there, ladies! Happy Tuesday and welcome to March! Can you believe it’s already time for spring?! Seems like it was just Christmas and here comes St. Patrick’s Day and Easter! Sheesh. It was a bit chilly this weekend so I spent some time in scrapping. This week I am spotlighting one of my favorite challenges we do here at GingerScraps, the font challenge! This month is it hosted by Ivonne of Craft-tastrophic Designs and she has really picked an adorable font:

I love cursive fonts and this one flows so beautifully. The font challenge is always a favorite of mine because it lends itself to all kinds of creativity without restraining too much. In other words–it’s easy! ;) Here’s some inspiration for you!

Okay okay, yes–I spotlighted myself here BUT come on–look at that pout! :D I love Kristen’s ornate clustering, I wish I could cluster like that! Victoria’s layout has a beautiful vintage feel and the font is just spot on. And of course, I love that cute little girl in the last layout! ;)

So, it’s a brand new month and that means another chance to snag some really great rewards: one buffet item, two buffet items or a snazzy $5 store gift certificate! Everyone who plays along in our challenge wins something, so go start your tracking thread now in the March challenge points tracking thread! I think my goal this month will be two buffet items, but I know some ladies will be going for gold! :)

Okie doke gals, I’m off! Y’all have a fantastic week!

Happy Tuesday! Hope everyone is having a great one so far; this is FINALS WEEK everywhere so the best of luck to anyone who is supposed to be studying right now! :D This week I am spotlighting one of my personal favorite challenges we have every month, the font challenge! This month the font challenge is hosted by Connie of Connie Prince Designs and she’s picked a tried and true font that everyone probably has and loves! Take a look:

It’s definitely a classic font, perfect for any layouts, but especially all the Christmas ones you’re sure to start creating soon! :) The layouts for this challenge are already flooding into the gallery; there are plenty to choose from, but here are a few of my favorites for your own scrapping inspiration!

Challenge Spotlight – Font Challenge

Happy Tuesday, ladies! Hope everyone had a restful long weekend and you’re all bright-eyed, bushy-tailed and ready to scrap! With just a couple of days left in May (OMG it’s almost June!), I’ve got one more monthly challenge to spotlight for you all. This week, I am shining a light on the May font challenge, hosted by JoyLynn of Blue Heart Scraps!

I am always in the market for new fonts to spruce up my layouts and this month, I just happened to be looking for some big, bold fonts for titling. Luckily, JoyLynn already found a great one for us to use in this month’s challenge: take a look!

Cute, right? I love the feel of this font and how versatile it looks. To prove the versatility, my fabulous fellow forum ladies have created some really gorg layouts using the font! It was super difficult for me to pick a few to highlight; this month the layouts for the font challenge were simply outstanding! Here a few to get your scrapping mind a’ tickin’!

Wow, wow, WOW! The layouts this month are just all KNOCKOUTS! I just can’t say enough about how talented the GS ladies are–seriously! I’d even bargain to say we have the most talented scrappers in all of digiland! ;)

But enough of my loving bragging ladies, it’s time to SCRAP! Remember: all your challenges must be completed and tallied up in the May Challenge Points Tracking thread before it’s closed on June 1 for counting. What prizes are up for grabs, you ask? How does a serious store discount coupon OR a $5 gift certificate sound? AMAZING? Yes, indeed. :)

There might only be a few days left in May, but that’s plenty of time for you to hunker down and churn out some layouts and earn yourself a treat! If you have any questions on this or any of our other monthly challenges, head over to the Cookie Jar and ask away. We got loads of smart cookies just waiting to help you!

I’m off for now ladies; have a wonderful rest of your week and see you all next month! :D
