Here’s a quick layout I did last night:
This layout isn’t going to win any design awards. It doesn’t have that “I spent 3 solid hours making this” look about it. But I like it all the same. I used the Being kit by Jen Wilson, a Schmootzy Frame by Nancie Rowe Janitz at ScrapArtist, a Fresh Floral brush by Jason Gaylor, and done.
This kit, by the way, is one of my All-time Favorite kits. (Jen has removed it from Scrapbook-bytes for now, but hopefully we’ll hear something soon about its new home. :D) The kraft paper is awesome. The stripes are awesome. The color scheme keeps me coming back again and again. In fact, I’ve used pieces and parts of this in at least 10 different layouts.
Now I know a lot of people buy a kit and use it once. And that’s cool. After all, there’s so much out there to buy and play with. But this quick layout I made with a tried-and-true kit got me thinking. That it might be cool to issue a CHALLENGE.
Here’s the challenge. We’ll call it 2Fer Tuesday, ok? So between now and NEXT Tuesday (August 22), I want you to choose a kit - any kit - and make at least two layouts with it. If it’s a kit you already own, that’s great. If it’s a kit you’ve had your eye on, that’s great too.
So - you can use parts of the kit for the two layouts. You can make them all-digi, hybrid, whatev. And post them to your favorite scrappy gallery and/or your blog.
Then link them up in the comments of THIS post.
I’ll choose 4 random numbers, and send out 4 (how did I get 4 copies of this book? I don’t know) copies of this Memory Makers idea book to four lucky scrappers:
It’s packed with 650 great (mostly paper) layouts. But we digis can get inspiration anywhere, right? I love to challenge myself to create paper techniques in digi, and I know you all love doing that too.
I’ll ship them for free within the US. If you live outside the US and would still love to play, that’s awesome. But you’ll have to pay for shipping, ok? :D
So shall we summarize?
- Make 2 layouts with the same kit.
- Upload them to a scrappy gallery and/or your blog
- Link them here in the comments of THIS post by midnight EST of Tuesday, August 22.
- I will choose 4 random numbers from among the links (after I’ve gone and peeked at all the scrappy goodness) and send you out a copy of the Memory Makers idea book, The Amazing Page.
Can’t wait to see. Tell your friends too, ok? :D
