Behind the 8 Ball - HMITM 111 (July 20 - August 2)

Ready for another challenge? I love something that gives me focus for my layout and also helps me use up my stash. During the summer it can feel like you are 'behind the 8 ball' in the scrapbooking department, and that was my inspiration for this week's challenge. Create a layout using...

8 - brads
8 - flowers
8 - buttons
8 - letter stickers

Post a link in The Pub at 2peas over the next two weeks so we can see your creation, and have fun with it!

Elizabeth: (I used a sketch from Page Maps for this layout), it was fun to frame my focal picture with all the different embellishments without making the layout feel too cluttered.

I went digital for this challenge and managed to fit 5 photos along with the other requirements. I used a bunch of brads as the center of one of my flowers so that it wouldn't look too crowded.

Debbi T:

I had so much fun with this challenge! I had printed this photo out kind of big, and there wasn't a whole lot of space on my 8 x 8 page for too much stuff, but I did manage to get all of the required elements on there by layering some of the flowers and using the buttons to top the flowers. I was really happy to use some of my ancient Primas!

Lisa: I am so excited to be joining this great team! Thanks girls for inviting me. I generally don't use a lot of embellishments on my layouts so this was a great challenge for me. I think the hardest part was getting all the buttons on there, but I did it and I am really happy with how it all turned out. And I got to use up a lot of my stash in the process!

Challenge #110 - Paint the Town Red {July 6 - July 19}

Good Monday Morning !

For our next challenge we are seeing red!

Use lots of red on a layout. Choose a photo with red in it. Make red be your main accent color. Whatever you do, I want to see red!

Be sure to go to 2 Peas and post your layout to this thread and share your layout with us all.

Michelle: Red is my main accent color here. As I was creating this layout with the soft blue GCD Deisgns pattern paper, I just thought it needed something. So I added the red to make it all pop.

Debbi T: I, too used red as my accent color. That's my husband being his regular goofball self. I've just started an album of all these silly pictures of him doing crazy poses for the camera. Because of all the green in the picture, I went with earthy colors and accented them with red to make the layout more fun.

Elizabeth: I realized I do not use that much colour red when I scrapbook, so this was a nice change for me. (I used a red stamp pad to change the colour of my chipboard swirl.)

Seeing as how red is my FAVE color...this was easy for me!
Throw in some aqua blue and I am a happy girl:)
