More challenges for NSD 2016

I decided to combine two challenges for this next layout. Shimelle had the use woodgrain challenge and SCT Magazine had the use a card as a template challenge. Both of those things make me happy so here we go…

Here is a card I made back in February (for one of my kid’s teachers […]

Shaped clips

I didn’t think I owned any shaped paper clip products. While I like the idea of them I’ve never purchased any because I didn’t think I would really find uses for them. I happened upon a couple that came in a kit-club kit that I had stashed away. This is the second time for this […]

Pocket page products

I’ve talked about this before, but I never use pocket scrapbook pages (well almost never). Yet I love the products. Last year I took at CKC class based on pocket page products determined to try using these on regular layouts. I haven’t much. But I still love the idea. So here I am, inspired by SCT […]

Six photos, single page!

Think you can’t get a lot of photos on a single page layout? Well, think again. I often use multiple photos on my layouts. Even so, six did turn out to be a stretch for me. This was the task I accepted by SCT magazine in my continuing quest to work on NSD layout challenges. I […]

Hair Changes

My kid decided she wanted really short hair over a year ago. Not only that but an array of colors were in store for us (I dye her hair for her). This page shows the first of those color changes.

The page design was inspired by two factors

my continuation of NSD layouts from the […]

Colorful title

I had the previous layout in mind when I saw the prompt by SCT magazine for a colorful title. But since I used that page for the tag challenge I created this page with a colorful title.

 

I chose these photos for this prompt since they lacked much color themselves. This gave me a […]

Tags, tags and more tags

Coincidence is a funny thing. I was searching through my stash looking for doilies for my last layout when I happened upon a package of tags that I forgot I had. Then up comes the challenge to use at least 6 tags by SCT magazine. Bingo!

I started by laying out a photo grid and building […]

Fabric fringe

Another of Shimelle’s challenges for NSD2016 was to use fabric on a page. I went with some fringe (in a fabric I might not have chosen but is what I had on hand). It mimics the story about my daughter dying her hair with Kool-Aid. Inspired by the fabric I added in other textile type […]

Painted background

When I saw that Shimelle and SCT Magazine both had painted/messy background challenges I knew right away what I wanted to work on.

I used Tim Holtz distress stains to add “photo mats” to my images and messy splatters. I used a strip of pattern paper to draw the color inspiration from. Some colorful […]

Masculine travel page

I’ve got photos of a vacation we took to California. I’m putting these pages in each of my kids albums. So I have similar photos that are being scrapped in differing styles. This one goes in my then-16 year old son’s album. While I don’t believe that guys automatically shun flowers and sparkle, it is true […]
