Hey friends I can not afford to do Lain's Layout a Day class this month but I thought I could do my own using her free app. It gives you a challenge each day.

You can learn more about the app here:
web page

Anyone want to play along? I will post the challenges here each day, so if you do not have the app you can still play!

  • May 1st - challenge is to use Enamel dots. I think if you do not have any maybe substitute brads or eyelets used in a similar way.

  • May 2nd - in honor of the warm weather to come create a "hot" page.

  • May 3rd - use a quote straight from-their-mouth on your page. ( if you do not have a quote from them try using a quote from literature or a movie)

  • May 4th - Time to get square. Use a grid layout, photos cropped to be square or other blocky embellishments on your project.

  • May 5th - It's Cinco de Mayo, scrapbook a fiesta today (or just your favorite mexican food) Maybe a pinata?

  • May 6th - Lets use up some of those photos. Use at least 3 photos on your layout.

  • May 7th - Hand it over, Let someone else do the journaling.

  • May 8th - Recycle a photo,use an item out of the trash and keep it simple.

  • May 9th- pull out those stamps and create an embellishment or border, or use alpha stamps to add a title right on your page.

  • May 10th - Scrap a compliment- one you have received, or one you'd like to give.

  • May 11 - happy Mother's Day in the USA. In honor of moms everywhere do a layout about a mom. Your mom, a mom you know, yourself as a mom, the mom you wished you had or were, someone who is like a mom or just a layout that has something to do with motherhood.

  • May 12th - today is national limerick today. Compose your own or use your favorite.

  • May 13th - Seeing Spots. Use polka dots on your page. Extra points for creating your own with paints, stamps or die-cut circles.

  • May 14th - Use a recent text message exchange on your page today.

  • May 15th- Think you're too busy to scrap? Set your timer for 30 minutes and create! Ready...Set...GO!

  • May 16th- Are your photos stacking up? Put them to good use and get at least 3 on today's layout.

  • May 17th -Is spring cleaning underway at your house? Scrap a page about your decluttering efforts, your love of organizing, or your typical weekly cleaning checklist.

  • May 18th - Stop! don't crop. Use an uncropped unedited photo on your page today.

  • May 19th - Add texture to your page using fabric, burlap, or layers, or even paint.

  • May 20th.- Page through a magazine and grab inspiration from within it's pages. Try using a color scheme or ad design.

  • May 21st - Flip through your photos. The first picture that stirs a story, grab it and start!

  • May 22nd - Washi Tape to the rescue! Bust out the wash tape and layer it up.

  • May 23rd - Scrapbook a particular meaningful coincidence in your life.

  • May 24th - With wedding season is fast approaching. Use lace or tulle on your layout, or scrapbook one of your favorite wedding memories.

  • May 25- Be Bold, Use Bold patterns, big photos, and bright colors to create an eye-catching layout.

  • May 26 - Create a memorial page for someone special

  • May 27 - Punch it out. Use your favorite punch or die cut machine.

  • May 28th - Mix and Match pattern paper. Don't be afraid to layer various patterns and colors on your layout.

  • May 29th - Sew it up! Stitch on your layout (even if it's just sewing a button to the page).

  • May 30th - Handwrite your journaling.

  • May 31 - 31 make Lain think of ice cream - 31 flavors. Scrapbook an ice-cream themed memory today. (or use sherbet colors to scrap another story.)

Posting this tonight so early birds and east coasters can get a jump start.

May 2nd - in honor of the warm weather to come create a "hot" page. Maybe use Orange and yellow, or include a photo of your crush, celeb or otherwise or a night out on the town. Maybe a BBQ or summer pics. You decide.

She did a webinar the other day and said that she's looked into doing it for Android or one of the others and the quote she got was too expensive for a free app but she hopes that the price will go down someday.
Have fun LOADing everyone!

So glad some of you can play along. I will not be able to actually scrap everyday either, but my plan is to play catch up on the days I can so that I end up with 31 projects for the month.

I plan on posting my layouts here and would love to see yours too if you can.

Pearpermint, I had heard of that podcast but have not listened to it yet. glad to know it is a good one.

Off to print some pics!

Thanks for keeping us posted to the daily challenges!!

Great Job Crystal! Love them both.

Here is my enamel dot layout

Rainbow loom fad.

I did a layout of my hubby on his Birthday for the Hot one - cause he is my hottie, but I have not taken pics yet.

I did get 7 layouts and 1 card done yesterday. (2 double pagers, 2 pocket pages and a single page layout and a card)

I'll do it! I'm taking her LOAD class right now, but I like the idea of mixing up prompts. Some prompts work better for me than others (depending on my photos.) So do we post our layouts here in this thread or in the gallery? I didn't even know about her app -- thanks for sharing!

My daughter and I both made layouts for May 8th's challenge.

We reused photos I had scrapped before and found packaging in my scrap trash to use. On my layout the long strip and the yellow layer behind the photos are packaging cards from products. I also used some cardstock that I had cut as a template to creature a watercolor Background for another layout. I saved it and it was perfect for this layout.

And on my daughters layout the journal spot was cut from packaging (she used the back white side).

The class she gives you more in-depth challenges and there is a forum and some prizes and things. I enjoyed it when I did one last year. The app is just daily prompts (it has one everyday of the year not just for a month)
