Template Mash Up Scrapbook Challenge: Hello Snow!

Much of the northeastern United States is saying Hello Snow! It seems fitting that we’re featuring a snowy themed layout in today’s Template Mash Up challenge. :) Let’s see what we can do in combining elements from these templates, Done with Doilies Layered Templates No. 04 and Hello Snow Layered Template to create scrapbook magic:

As usual, our Creative Team was eager to dive in and play with this challenge, and they’ve provided some great inspiration.

Amy lives in the south, and her city isn’t used to seeing snow. When it arrived last year, it was a ‘Snowpocalypse!’ I loved reading her detailed journaling about this most unusual couple of days. The colors and whimsical elements of the Hello Snow Template blend beautifully with the softer brushwork and details of the Done with Doilies Template to create a very attractive page. Amy’s additional suplies for this page included So Fine Add-On Paper Pack, So Fine Solids Paper Pack, Sweet Rosey Paper Pack, Crowning Affair: Vibrant Paper Pack, Snow Fun Element Pack, Polar Mountain Element Pack, Winter Woods Element Pack.

I love the kraft background of Lindsay’s page with the pink, green and blue papers and elements. It seems that her daughter felt some trepidation about the white stuff that was new to her! In addition to the featured templates, Lindsay used Polar Mountain Kit, Bold and Scripted Brushes and Stamps No. 17, Blendable Layers No. 14, Clean Stitched Borders: White No. 01, December Woods Solids Paper Pack on her layout.

winterevening2Agnieszka’s photograph certainly depicts a ‘Winter Wonderland.’ I love how the wintery blue tones of the photo are picked up by the piece of patterned paper she uses as a mat. Credits for this page include December Kit, Walden Kit, Janvier Kit, Bold and Shadowed Brushes and Stamps No. 02, Curated Studio Mix Scrapbooking Kit No. 18.

I hope you’ll play along with our challenge this week! Post your completed layouts in the Template Challenge Gallery to share the inspiration.

Page Makeover Challenge: Self Scraplift

This month, it is an easy Makeover Challenge. It is more of a self-scraplift than a makeover, but I loved the idea when one of the other CT members suggested it!

Choose the design from one of your favourite pages and use it to make a winter-themed page. For example, if you had a page for summer, and loved the design, swap out the summer elements for winter ones and change the photo.

Easy-peasy!

A few of the CT did some examples! Brenda chose this great layout and decided to change it. Both are great, but love how the winter one turned out!

Classic Curled Photo Frames No. 06, Chalkboard Wings Add-On Paper Pack, Chalkboard Foliage Brushes and Stamps No. 01, Chalkboard Ornaments Brushes and Stamps No. 01, December Memories Brushes and Stamps, Blocked Sentiments Brushes and Stamps No. 07, Elfin Magic Element Pack, Hello December Painted Accents, Frame Hangers No. 01, Twisted Dots No. 01, Collageable Puzzle Pieces No. 03, December Days Brads No. 01

Agnieszka chose to do a fabulous re-make of this great page. Love how the new one (on the right) kept the same look, but has a real winter feel to it. Brrrr….

Saturday Scraplift: Explorer

Welcome to this week’s Saturday Scraplift! Today’s featured layout is Explorer by Maruma. There are so many things that captured my eye with this layout. I loved the color contrast and the circle brushes behind the photo. The clear journaling block and the edge treatments on the top and bottom of the layout were also wonderful additions. Let’s take a look and see how some of the creative team members were inspired.
Entdeckerin_webFirst up is Sharon (Shannamay). She also used the contrast in color, pairing neutrals with bits of blue. The vellum paper block and the circle brush draws the focus to the photo in this touching layout.
23rd_December_Saying_Goodbye_webSharon’s credits: Blendable Layers No. 17, Hello Autumn Complete Scrapbooking Collection, Vintage Photo Frames No. 30, Essential Vellums Paper Pack No. 02, Doily Edgers No. 06, Adalicia Element Pack, Defined Discs No. 02 Brushes and Stamps
Bead Scatterings No. 01, Chimayo Washi Tapes and Twisted Dots No. 01

Next is Trace (tracermajig). Trace used a completely different color scheme for her birthday layout. She used a colorful background brush and similar placement for the journaling block. She completed her layout with lively edge treatments.
birthday-girl2Trace’s credits: Almost There Element Pack, Artsy Paint No. 06, Birthday Sticker Pack, Birthday Words, Curated Studio Mix Scrapbooking Kit No. 11, Cut Ups: Birthday, Dolphin Cove Scrapbooking Kit, Dolphin Cove Solids Paper Pack, Edge Overlays No. 02, Hadleigh Element Pack, Inked Banners Brushes and Stamps No. 01, Readymade Borders: Rainbow No. 01, Scribbling Clusters No. 01, Sweet Rosey Element Pack, Sweet Rosey Washi Tapes, Swimmies Element Pack, Watery Spots Brushes and Stamps No. 01

Anke used vellum on her layout as well but placed it over the photo. She then shifted her journaling to the side. Like the original layout, she also used edge treatments as the finishing touch to her AAM layout.
2014-1-22-AboutMeAnke’s credits: Outlined and Scripted Sentiments No.3, Classic Scraps Mini Kit No.1, Shining clusters No.2, Negative Sleeves No. 02, Striping Masks Brushes and Stamps No. 01, Blendable Layers No. 17, Curated Studio Mix Scrapbooking Kit No. 19 and Walden Kit.

One Kit Wonder(+1) Scrapbooking Challenge-Finley

Welcome to the January One Kit Wonder (+1) Challenge! I like this challenge very much. It’s fun to really play with one particular kit, exploring all the parts and possibilities of that kit. This month our featured kit is a Creative Team favorite, the Finley Kit.

KPertiet_FinleyKitPREV

Sarah (sterkeurs) used some of the soft pinks from the kit to create a wonderful feminine page for her lovely birthday girl. I like the way she filled the triangles with some beautiful papers. To the Finley kit, she added stitching from the Kerava Element Pack because one additional item can be added to the chosen kit.

Ineke_8

Jana (jholden15) put together a great beachy home for her photos with some of the Finley kit neutral papers and elements. Don’t you love the cluster she created?! She added a brush from the Del Mar Shores kit, her +1 item.

BEACH-painting-copy

I focused on the great blues in the Finley kit for my layout. Pink, blue and neutral choices all in one great kit. Now that is versatile!

We hope you have enjoyed seeing some of the great ways the Finley kit can be used. Super news—the kit is even on sale this week!

We’d love to see how you use this versatile kit, so please post your layouts in the Scrapbook Challenges gallery. Don’t forget to post your layout in the January Challenges thread to help earn a valuable coupon!
