Challenge Spotlight – Brush Challenge

Howdy, scrappy ladies! Hope y’all are having a great week; how is it that it’s nearly the middle of August already? Wasn’t July just starting, now we’re getting ready for back to school? Sheesh! Now, I will be the first to admit I’m not a big fan of brushes, but this week I am spotlighting the brush challenge hosted by Wendy of Wendy Tunison Designs because the brushes Wendy chose for us to work with are just so darn cute! I’m also not a big doodly gal, but these are just awesome; take a look:

These are a little retro, a little modern and a lot rad!  I’m a sucker for anything with a globe, so I loved these right away. If you’re like me and not a big brush user, take a look at some of the layouts the ladies in the forum have created for inspiration. They definitely got me wanting to use these asap!

Loving these pages, ladies! These brushes are the perfect mod accent that don’t overtake the kit or distract from the layout itself! Gorgeous! Now it’s your turn. If you’re not big into doodles or brushes, I think this is the perfect opportunity to challenge yourself with a…challenge! 😉

If you haven’t started keeping track of all your completed challenges for August, there’s no time like the present! Head over to the August 2013 Tracking Thread and start your post so you can get yourself a sweet little reward at the end of the month. 🙂 Questions about this or any of our monthly challenges? Drop your query in the cookie jar and someone will get back to you as soon as possible–don’t be shy! 🙂

That’s it for today’s blog! Y’all have a wonderfully scrappy week! 🙂

Challenge Spotlight – Brush Challenge

Happy Tuesday yet again, my lovely ladies! Hope everyone reading this is well (and everyone not reading this, as well…of course!) and having a great start to your week! It’s scorching hot here in Texas and I’m already ready for the weekend! All I want to do is stay in the A/C and scrap! For my last blog of the month, I’ll be spotlighting a new challenge to the forums: Jenn of Joyful Heart Designs’ NEW brush challenge! Now for the gorgeous brushes she’s picked for this month:

I haven’t used brushes in ages, but this new challenge will certainly get me doing that again. Now, if you think the brushes alone are pretty, you’ve got to see what the forum gals have been baking up! Need some inspiration? Here we go!

Seriously brilliant work, gals! So glad this was used for a hybrid card; my mind is cooking with plans for future projects using these brushes! Take a minute and click through to the gallery and leave these gorgeous scraps some love! So…how about you? Ready to start scrapping? 😀

This is the LAST WEEK to get your June challenges in and tallied up in the June Challenge Points Tracking thread; make sure you’re keeping track so you can win a discount coupon/gift certificate to the store when the month is done! As if the free brushes and major (digi) street cred isn’t enough, you get a discount/gift! (See why GingerScraps is the friendliest place in digiland? ;)) Don’t forget, if you have any questions about this or any of the other challenges, head over the to Cookie Jar and ask away!  We’ve got scads of helpful ladies just waiting to help if you need it.

That’s it for this week–and this month! (WOW, June is gone! So crazy!) I’ll see y’all back here next week to start off July’s challenge spotlights. Have a great week…now get to scrapping! 🙂
