Challenge

Double up your template:a challenge

This week's challenge comes from Tara! She says:

"I thought we could challenge ourselves to take a template and double it. You can use it to tell a story but expanding the original template with a few changes here and there allow you to tell a fuller story. Here I altered the photo sizes, brought the main photo and papers down and across the page. I also removed the paper block and trim and replicated part of the paper on the bottom across the top of the layout. Its a simple way to stretch the use of your templates."

Upload your layout (don't forget to check the correct challenge box!) by midnight CST on August 21st for you chance at this week's gift certificate.

Original layout:

expanded layout:

And congratulations to last week's gift certificate winner, kyky77!

Designer Spotlight: Edeline Marta

 

1. How long have you been designing?
 

Wow.. time does fly! I always feels like I am still a newbie to this, turns out I have been designing for almost 4 years now. 

2. Were you a scrapbooker before starting to design? If so, have you always been digital or did you transition from traditional paper scrapping?
 

I was, but then I quit because I went to study and had not as much time to do it anymore. 

3. What are you favorite items to design?
 

I love creating papers. I always start with the papers first then do the elements. Sometimes I have a plan to create mini kits with 4-5 papers, but am enjoying it too much and the kit becomes a full kit instead with 12 papers in it :D 

4. How long does it typically take you to design a kit?
 

For a bundle kit, I can take almost 4-5 days to finish up. A pack of elements I can do in 5 hours :)

Right now I am working on a new bundle kit that took me almost 2 months because I just gave birth to my 3rd child...

5. What are some of your inspiration sources?
 
My children. Something they said/did; something that gave me an idea to create something. Pinterest is also another inspiration source as well as Etsy

 

Keep up with Edeline in her Two Peas shop,  her blog, her Twitter and her Facebook page!

Challenge

Use a Two Peas free digital kit: a challenge

This week's challenge comes from Laura. She says:

My challenge for this week is to make a project using at least one of the free kits here at 2Peas. To find the free kits, go to the Digital Store. In the dropdown box above the kits select "price low to high" and all of the free kits will come up first. There are all sorts of great freebies to choose from. Every time I browse I find something new! For this layout I used a February Freebie Template by ChrissyW and Penned Words :: I Heart Scrapbooking by Shimelle Laine. You are free to make a digital scrapbooking page, hybrid layout, Project Life spread, card, whatever!, just as long as it uses one free digital kit from the 2Peas store. Upload your project to the gallery (be sure to check the correct challenge box) by midnight CST July 31st for your chance at this week's gift certificate!
 

And congratulations to last week's winner, TaraSroka!

Designer Spotlight: Emily of Polka Dot Pixels

 
1. How long have you been designing?
 

I started designing for web about ten years ago and stumbled upon digital scrapbooking. I thought...Hey! I can do that!! I was hooked. I opened my first online shop in 2008.

2. Were you a scrapbooker before starting to design? If so, have you always been digital or did you transition from traditional paper scrapping?
 

It is a bit embarrassing. Yes, I was a scrapbooker before starting to design but more specifically, a scrap supply hoarder. I shopped more than I scrapped. Once I started designing for digital, I started scrapping more but not as much as I should. I am ashamed of myself.  

3. What are you favorite items to design?
 

I love creating labels and journaling tags. I LOVE PL and 365 projects!!

4. How long does it typically take you to design a kit?
 

If I am inspired or have a great idea, I can finish one in a day or two, but when I am busy with other projects, or having a creative block, it can be over a week. I wish sleeping was optional. I could really use more hours in my day.

5. What are some of your inspiration sources?
 
Old magazines, children's books, vintage catalogs, and of course, Pinterest! I can spend hours stalking everyone's boards. I love living vicariously through other's achievements, talents and style. When I am feeling down, Pinterest helps remind me of how much beauty there is in this world. :)

Challenge

Create a photo-less layout: a challenge

This week's layout comes from Katherine. She says:

We all have a memory or two (or even three ;D) that we want to document where we either have no photographs or the photographs that we have are well, not scrap worthy for whatever reason, lighting was horrible, photos are too blurry. Maybe you don't have any/enough photos because the batteries to your camera had died. Or maybe you are like me and had simply forgotten your camera that day (yep, done that!). There may even be a memory or two that you want to document that doesn't necessarily require any photos (something like my layout). My challenge to you this week is to create a photo-less layout documenting a moment or memory without using any photos. This challenge is open for any theme and/or any topic. Scrapbook anything you want (a birth, birthday, baptism, graduation, concert, etc.) or simply document a list of things that is significant to you . . . things that make you smile (maybe things that make you grumpy), things that are currently happening around you right now, a "he said, she said." Whatever you want. The only requirement is that you use no photos. None. Not even one. Upload your project to the gallery (be sure to check the right challenge box!) by midnight CST July 24th for your chance to win this week's gift certificate!

Have fun to all of you who play along!

And congratulations to last week's gift certificate winner, scrappin-grandma!
