Challenge Spotlight – Mini Kit Challenge

Good morning, all! Hope everyone had a great weekend; mine was not long enough, as usual! We’re already mid-July (eek!) and it’s time for another challenge spotlight. This week, I am writing about a rad challenge with a freebie: the mini kit challenge hosted by Wendy of Wendy Tunison Designs! Wendy brought her unique style to this month’s mini; check it out:

LOVE. IT. Wendy’s minis are never truly mini, so there’s lots of fun vintage elements here to work with. Not surprising, this challenge has been popular this month with bunches of layouts pouring in! Take a look at a few of my favorites for inspiration…

Absolutely gorgeous. Seriously, I am loving this mini and adoring these layouts. All three of these pages have the same “junky vintage” feel, but are vastly unique. That is the sign of some talented scrappers working with a well-designed kit.  :)

Remember, the month is now officially half over! Make sure you’re tracking your completed challenges in the July 2013 Challenge Tracking Thread. You’ll want to get all your challenge credits so you can snag yourself an awesome reward once July is over. :)

That’s it for this week! Stop by again next week! :)

Challenge Spotlight – Mini Kit Challenge

I can’t believe it’s already September–that is just plain insanity! It was just spring…now it’s fall?! Well, it’s sort of fall. It was over 100 here in Texas yesterday so, let’s call it “fall.” :) I spent the long hot holiday weekend inside gets all kinds of scrapping done! I’m gunning for the big prize at the end of this month and I’m already halfway there! Let’s catch you up to speed with this week’s challenge spotlight; I’m talking about Crystal of Inspired Designs’ mini kit challenge! I just love the colors of this min, rich and pretty for fall and so many ellies, can hardly believe this is a freebie! Enough chattering, let’s take a look at what she’s got for us this month!

Absolutely beautiful, Crystal!  What’s even more beautiful are the amazing layouts the ladies of the forum have already been busy at work creating! Seriously, it’s just the 3rd of September and these are already flooding in! I guess everyone’s excited about working with such a cute kit. :) Let’s peek at their pages for some inspiration!

Amazing work, as usual! Do I ever expect anything less from all the talent we’ve got pouring out at GingerScraps? Of course not! ;) I adore April’s journaling and title work, Judy’s use of “patterned white space,” and Poki’s ribbon-y paper strips! All fabulous, gals, I love them!

Now it’s your turn to join in on the fun! The mini kit challenge runs from now until the end of the month, so jump in, grab your freebie mini and scrap us up something pretty to see in the gallery! You’ve got a shot at some awesome prizes–you even get a prize just for doing one challenge! (Just because GingerScraps loves you like that. ;) )All you have to do is post them to the gallery and keep track of your completed challenges in the September Challenge Points Tracking thread.

That’s it for me this week, I’ve got some schoolwork to do (and some regular work, too!) so I’m off! Hope y’all have a wonderful week and get some scrapping in where you can. See everyone next week! :)

Challenge Spotlight – Mini Kit Challenge

Hello and happy August! I am fresh off the plane from a lovely little vacation in Oak Creek, Wisconsin! It was relaxing, but busy and I’m pooped! Pausing for a serious note, I trust you have all heard of the Sikh temple shooting that happened in that same city just yesterday; my thoughts go out to everyone affected in that terrible, sad situation. <3

Now, let’s talk scrapping. How did it get to be August so quickly?! I can’t believe the year is winding to a close. But with a new month comes a new batch of our world-famous (at least that’s what I tell myself) monthly challenges! This week I am spotlighting a challenge with the **freebie**: the August 2012 Mini Kit Challenge hosted by Lily of Pixelily Designs! You’ll absolutely adore the gorgeous little mini she’s whipped up for us this month; check it out!

So flipping cute, Lily! I love the purple and green together! I’m sure we’ve ALL got a summer photo or two that needs scrapping; here’s your chance! The layouts are already coming in from our talented forum ladies; if you want a little inspiration for this mini, look no further! (Well…maybe a little further)  :)

Outstanding job so far, gals! I didn’t realize how versatile this kit is until I saw how all the cool different effects these ladies were able to create for their layouts! Love it! Now…it’s your turn to show off your awesome scrappin’ skills! All you have to do is jump over to the August 2012 Mini Kit Challenge thread, pick up the mini and get to scrappin’!

Make sure you stop by the August Challenge Points Tracking thread and claim your spot so you can start tallying up all your points towards some amazing rewards! If you’re a newcomer (well, hi there!) and you’re wondering what fabulous prizes you can win for participating in the GingerScraps monthly challenges, check out the rewards system thread and get all the 411. Of course, if you have any questions about the rewards, this challenge or any of the other monthly challenges, you should most definitely direct them to the Cookie Jar where some smart little cookie will get you an answer just as soon as possible! :)  ALSO, if you want to see your layout highlighted here, make sure you participate and post your creations in the correct challenge thread; also good so we can all ooh and ahh over your fabulousness! ;)

That’s it for me today, ladies. Thanks for stopping by and I hope y’all have a rad week! :)
