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]

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.

Erin was only a year old when this picture was taken. It was her only Christmas as an only child! Paper and elements are by Stephinette.

Ramses the Great

Filed under: layout — Tags: , , , , — Angie Simpson @ 12:19 pm

Erin’s friend Sarah has the cutest cat named Ramses. He is a Sphinx cat, which means that he has no fur.  It’s a little odd at first, but he’s sweet and I quickly became accustomed to his appearance! The kit I used here is “Cool Cat” by Denise Liemert; it can be purchased for a very low cost at Digitals.

Time for the go Digital Scrapbooking (GDS) font challenge! In this layout I used products made by Vicki Parker, Ptitesouris, and Stella Johnson, as well as the “Precious” font that is part of the challenge. Here’s my entry:

New LO on my blogger site

Filed under: layout — Tags: , — Angie Simpson @ 10:58 am

I made a collage of pictures of the Virgin Mary… check it out here.

My daughter Erin is coming to visit today! I’m excited. It’s great that she lives close enough to visit and has her own car. Of course, now that she’s out of college and working, and she doesn’t live in a town with public transit, a car is a necessity.
