June Challenges at DigiDesignResort!

Filed under: Challenges, layout — Angie Simpson @ 6:38 pm

It’s challenge time again, and I finished all 12 for DDR! This means I will receive the new Father’s Day collab free, and also a discount coupon (35%) for the store.

I enjoy doing challenges from ddr or gds,  but they limit me to using kits just from their stores. I have so many other materials that I’d like to try, and also pictures.

And on to the pictures!

May Challenges

Filed under: Challenges, freebie, layout — Angie Simpson @ 2:12 pm

Again I’ve been busy this month completing challenges at They are fun to do and there’s an extra-special bonus kit for doing the first six. I’m also working on the Progressive Scrap in which they give directions of what to add every three days. Once something is added, it can’t be changed. I’m a little nervouse about mine, but all I can do is try, right?

Freebie challenge, a special one for NSD (National Scrapbooking Day)!

This is my color challenge lo, with a picture of Kelly as a baby.

“Tourist Trap Challenge;” scrap a picture of the women in your life, or a 4-5 generation pic.

Word art challenge, using my new kit “Women’s Work.”

This one is for the Element challenge. The element we had to use was stitching. I had to make my own because none of my ddr kits had any stitching. What I did is very basic; I’d like to learn how to make the fancier ones.

Font challenge — font named Minya Nouvelle. The kit was Saskia’s Dark Side of the Moon, and of course, the pictures came from our Europe trip.

Scraplift challenge, a bit different from usual. Normally everyone lifts from the same page, but this time we looked at a person’s gallery and chose a page to lift. There were many choices since her gallery was so big!

Here’s the Theme Challenge, Simple Joys. I named it “Erin’s Simple Joys.”

Finally, this is the Use-it-all Mini. I think it’s very pretty.

Lots of Challenges

Filed under: Challenges, layout — Tags: , , , , , , , — Angie Simpson @ 5:08 pm

Me and my Paint Shop program have been busy lately, trying to complete all the April challenges at I caught them just in time.

There were 12 in all… I think I already posted 2 or 3 of them last time.

This was for the element challenge… requirement was to use lots of curves.

Color challenge — we had to use a particular palette of colors.

I made this for the font challenge. We were given a new font (fontastique) with which to do titles or journaling.  Although using pictures of myself is somewhat narcissistic, I do like the ones when I was a little girl.

The Mix-it-up challenge: use papers/elements from 3 different kits never used before.

I like the recipe challenges like this one. The layout has to be made using a digital “recipe” — i.e., 1 solid paper, 1 pattern paper, 3 flowers, etc.

April storytelling challenge; we had to write at least a bit of journaling starting with the words “Just because.” This is a picture of my best friend Kellye.

Template challenge: we were given a template to interpret using our own papers, elements, etc. This is for my little sister Shelley.

For this challenge, we were given a mini-kit and were required to use everything in the kit and nothing else (except for pictures).

Finally, this wordart challenge, in which we were supposed to scrap a conversation, was a lot of fun. I can remember so many conversations like this one — basically, whenever we went somewhere in a car!

New Layouts! [Edit below]

Filed under: Challenges, freebie, layout, speed scrap — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , — Angie Simpson @ 5:10 pm

I haven’t made any layouts for a long time, as you can see, but I recently started doing speed scrap and challenges at Speed scraps are fun but I get a bit too hyper when I do them! Challenges are better, as I can take my time.

Theme Challenge -- Maureen and Gregory

April scraplift challenge

I think the last one is my favorite! There are so many pictures of Erin and Roger — and the rest of my family — that I have yet to scrap. Some have not even been scanned. So there’s a lot of work still to do, but with each layout I get a little more done!

I wonder if you can buy a printer that’s big enough to print the 12×12 pages? If so, I would love to get one. And of course, lots of ink!

Edit: I forgot about a few layouts I have made but didn’t post on this site.

Mom & Jerrys 5th Anniversary!

May Color Challenge & “In the Garden”

Filed under: Challenges, layout — Angie Simpson @ 1:03 am

gDS ( has great challenges every month, so I try to do at least one every month. Last night I did a LO for the color challenge, as well as another one for “In My Garden” from Bits O’Scrap. The latter also comes as a QP.

Quote Challenge Layout

Filed under: Challenges, layout — Tags: , , — Angie Simpson @ 9:26 am

Today I made a new layout for the DigiScrap Obsession April Quote Challenge. The phrase is “One Fine Day” and I chose photos from a day at Six Flags. I used elements and paper from the GDS March collab kit, including Marshmella Designs, One Memory at a Time, JJscrapping, Christy Skaggs, and Majula Designs.

May Calendar and Color Challenge

Filed under: Challenges, layout — Tags: , , , , — Angie Simpson @ 10:17 am

This morning I made a calendar page for May (I’m trying to stay at least a month ahead!) and an entry for the DSO (Digital Scrapbook Obsession) April Color Challenge.  I’m not familiar with how to use these colors; I tend towards pastels. So I’m not thoroughly happy with how it turned out, although it’s nice to have pictures of Midnight!

I found out today that I made a mistake in creating the layout I posted yesterday. I used the work of other designers and it turns out that their TOU (terms of use) specified personal use only. So I have taken down the link to the QP download. I also sent apologies to the designers involved. As a newbie I appreciate people letting me know about scrapping protocol, especially when it concerns the rights of designers!

March Color Challenge

Filed under: Challenges — Tags: , — Angie Simpson @ 10:43 am

I decided to jump wholeheartedly into my new hobby of digital scrapbooking, so I have entered Kim’s March Color Challenge at the DSO blog! The idea is to make a layout or a kit using her color palette. I don’t know how to make kits yet so I went with a layout:

I am very grateful for the materials supplied by the fantastic designers Jodiann, txbubbles, and LouCee! Thank you for making the paper and elements for my layout.

Those are my 3 delightful nieces in the photographs.

Please leave me feedback so I can get better at scrapbooking! Thanks!
