Hello everyone! It’s Kylie here and I’m thrilled to bring you a special little birthday treat – a scrapbooking recipe CHALLENGE!! A wonderful way for everyone to join in with all the excitement as we celebrate the BLOG’s birthday! Simply follow the instructions on the scrap recipe card below and put together your very own celebration layout.
As a special treat, we will be selecting not one, but THREE ‘winners’ who participate in this fun recipe challenge. Each ’winner’ will receive a $10 GIFT CARD to the Shabby Shoppe! You have several weeks to scrap this challenge and comment back. To be eligible to ‘win’ – you must upload your layout to the Shabby Shoppe BLOG CHALLENGE GALLERY AND then post a COMMENT HERE at our blog (on this post only) with a link to your layout in our gallery. All challenge entries (gallery upload/your comment) must be received by the challenge DEADLINE – Monday, June 6th. Our three lovely ‘winners’ will be announced Wednesday, June 8th! Please keep in mind that all layouts must contain at least 75% SP product (purchased or free) and remember to follow the “Time to Celebrate” recipe below! :o)
(Recipe card made with Muffin Man recipe card template no.5, ‘an affair to remember’ kit (currently on SALE), alpha – goose bumps – recolored - and the fonts used are LD adornment & LD elegance)
~*~ Here is a little more explanation than what’s on the recipe card ~*~
Gift-giving is so much fun and that’s what this challenge is all about! The aim is to treat our page like a gift! – a special present, lovingly wrapped with all the trimmings and a little card to add a personal touch!
Scrap something that you’ve celebrated – an occasion, a milestone or simply a moment that was important to you!
Choose one special photo that represents that celebration. You can frame if you like – we’ll leave that up to you!
What’s a gift without a little card? So take a journal label and fill it with your story, your thoughts, your memories! And you’ll need a title on your page too – so be sure to add one!
Choose 3 different papers that are fairly neutral in tones and/or patterns. Use them anyway you want!
Now, choose another paper that has a burst of color to add a little ‘wow factor’ to your page!
With embellishments - you have free reign! You can stick to your own personal scrapping style (or not) with this recipe requirement – add just one or two elements or a page-full – no limit!
To finish the perfect ‘gift’ you will need a little trimming – in my opinion it’s a must! Add at least one of the following to your layout:
Ribbon ::: Bow ::: RicRac ::: Stitching ::: AND/OR ::: Ornate Trim
If you have any questions about this recipe challenge, please post a comment here and we’ll reply to you as soon as we can (daily)! :o) Now, let me show you how my page turned out by following the “Time to Celebrate” recipe challenge guidelines! I used several different Shabby Princess kits so if you’re interested in which ones, I’ll be posting my layout in the Shabby Artist Gallery in the next day or so.
Can’t wait to see what you create! Again, be sure to get your entries in by MIDNIGHT (Eastern Time) on JUNE 6th, and the three gift card winners will be announced on JUNE 8th! Happy Scrapping!! :o)
Enjoy your weekend and we’ll see you back here on MONDAY with Layout of the Week!
