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!

The “In My Garden” kit from Bits O’Scrap has so many choices, so much potential I can’t stop making layouts with it! Here is a new one called “Watch Me Grow.”

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.

Bits O’Scrap “Sun-kissed”

I love this kit from Tina at Bits O’Scrap! The colors are beautiful and can be used for spring or summer layouts. I did something a little different this time, using photos from our trip to Europe to make the layout.

There may be a QP coming up on the Bits O’Scrap CT blog, so keep your eyes open!

Bits O’ Scrap “In My Garden”

Filed under: layout — Tags: , , — Angie Simpson @ 10:00 am

*EDIT below*

Here is the layout I made from the kit “In My Garden” by Bits O’ Scrap:

Gregory is my grandson and so cute! I’m not biased at all, lol. He’s the cutest thing around and he just turned two. My daughter and I went to his birthday party and boy was he a little powerhouse!

I’m working on a QP which will appear on the Bits O’ Scrap blog (see right). In the meantime, check it out!

Later today I used a template by Andrea Gold to create this layout:

Go Navy!

Template Layout

Filed under: layout — Tags: , , , — Angie Simpson @ 11:06 am

I made this layout using a freebie template from Midnight Scrapping.  I think it’s really pretty!

I used the template as-is rather than adding anything because I think it’s great by itself!

Back at last!

Filed under: layout — Tags: , — Angie Simpson @ 11:21 am

I’ve been away for the last three weeks and I’m very happy to be back at my computer! One of the first things I did was to make a new layout featuring the lovely roses I received. This LO is a little different — very busy.  This kit comes from Bits’N’Bobs and Artmama, and it’s called “A Stalker Valentine.”

I made a “minimalist” LO as well, using a kit made by Ana Nogueira.

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!
