Scrapbook Challenge: Chart It

Welcome to the Chart It challenge! The inspiration for this challenge is based on infographics – how to convey information clearly while creating a visually appealing image. Doesn’t that sound like exactly what scrapbooking is all about? There is a freebie provided for the challenge and instructions for the rewards program at the end of the post, so keep reading!

I’ve chosen this image as our inspiration for some InfoScrapping:

And our Creative Team have taken three very different – but very fun – takes on our inspiration piece.

Mel (aka britgirl) created a beautiful page to share information about a new and very special pony and two very happy girls. I love how she used the arrows to add journaling surrounding her photo. Doesn’t her page make you wish that you had a pony?

Jana (aka jlholden15) took the inspiration piece and created a very colorful and artistic piece that is definitely visually appealing! I truly love bright and colorful pages, and I love how she transformed the underlying chart into such an interesting image!

For my (mungerre) page, I focused on school supplies, something I like to scrap about at back-to-school time each year. I was inspired to use extractions, ending up with a slightly different twist to my page than if I had just used a list.

I Was Framed! A Saturday Scraplift Challenge

This layout that Maureen (maureenreynolds), designed to celebrate her college graduation, just made me smile! I love the special journaling, the bold title and the chunky frame. That’s why I chose it for this week’s Saturday Scraplift!

 

I_Got_An_A_700LP

 

CT member Carol (carollee) designed a soft and sweet layout of her husband and their adorable little newborn grandchild. I really like the texture Carol was able to achieve while keeping her layout baby soft. The addition of the photo corners and worn page edges are perfect!

I love the workshop Bailey (starlite 9711) had put together for this great photo of her son’s special toy. Those scattered nails are very unexpected and my favorite part of her layout, right after that cute photo!

Bailey’s supplies: Krafty Guys Collection, Drawn Sentiment Spots No 1, Lakeland Alpha, Brielle Alpha, Home Handyman Kit.

Art Journal Inspiration #8

~ Hello everyone~!

It’s been a whirlwind of a summer – for good and for worse – and I am looking forward to the more quiet days of autumn already. Although, I say autumn with a sense of nostalgia, as we don’t have much autumn or fall around where I live in the Middle East. :)  Not so sure about the quiet either, for that matter. It’s rather politically hot and humid here.

Isn’t it wonderful to find a quiet place to do some art journaling? I sat down with some lovely opera and I made this page this evening. I was inspired by a quote I saw on Pinterest.

14_aug_aj8_web

I used one of my photos and played with it in a program called Postworkshop 3. I then imported it and played with blending modes on the lovely cardboard paper.

An Artsy Layered Paint completed the large photo and a vintage photo frame completed the smaller copy of the photo.

This week I suggest you get inspired by a quote you like or have found. Look up quotes on Pinterest and you can scroll for hours. Be bold and use a funky cardboard background.

Be sure to upload to our Art Journal Gallery!

Home Decor Challenge: Bold Color

Happy Hump Day All! Hillarey here with our second installment of the Home Decor Challenge. This months challenge features bold colors and textures! That table is the most striking piece of furniture I’ve seen, combined with the beautiful mirror and those bold background stripes; this image just screams inspiration! Debi (Beehive50), Arte Banale (Agnieszka) and I have created some beautiful pages to get you inspired.

Decor inspirationDebi’s page is about her husbands love for the E46 M3 BMW in Laguna Seca Blue and how one day his dream of owning one will come true! Debi’s inspiration came from the storage boxes underneath the table and she used them to create that awesome “M” monogram. I also love how she combined Lynn’s Summer Burst paper (freebie!) with  a Mablebrook Studio’s Just Linen No. 61 paper to create that soft striped background!

Beehive50-MThe products Debi used: Flair Minis No. 02, White Sticker Alphabet No. 01,
Just Linens Paper Pack No. 61

Agnieszka page features a lovely inspirational quote and loads of lovely goodies! Her inspiration came from the striped background, the cool table and the greenery in the photograph! I love how she mimicked the table legs by using the sea horses! Her color choices are absolutely beautiful as well!

Arte Banale - Traveler's RoomProducts Agneiszka used: LilaBlue Kit *coming soon*, Oceania Blendables,  Oceania Scrapbook Kit, DelMar Shores Scrapbooking Kit, LakeLand Scrapbook Kit, Brielle Scrapbooking Kit, Childhood Word Art No. 03 Brushes and Stamps

My page documents something new I discovered during our recent vacation; crooked smiles! I’m always looking for family resemblances in the kids and when I came across this picture one day I realized that my son and I both have crooked smiles! My inspiration for this page came from the position of the table in the picture as well as the color of the table, I was also inspired by the striped background but felt I needed some natural elements on the page to off-set all that color, I was also very inspired by the cool frame and improvised my own, creating one using a frame from the Brielle Collection and combining it with a doily sticker from the Crowning Affair Vibrant Collection! I also added in some greenery from the inspiration page, again to soften all the orange and blue!

Crooked Smile ClubProducts I used: Arlesely Elements, Away We Go Elements, Banner Doodles No. 01, Bread and Butter Elements: Oval Journal Tags, Brielle Elements, Crowning Affair: Vibrant, Curated Studio Mix No. 01, Dalese Elements, Dash Away Elements, Delmar Shores Elements, Gesso No. 01, Hey There Elements, In Line Alpha No. 01 (re-colored), Messy Stitched Rounded Corners Black No. 01, Painted Maps No. 01, Wild Island Kit, Wood Veneer Strips No. 01 *Coming Soon*

Where will your inspiration take you? To make this a little more fun, here are Katie’s Freebies for the challenge!
