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 digidesignresort.com. 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!

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!

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!
