February Use It All Challenge at Pickleberrypop

If you’ve been following me for a while you know I love challenges.  I also recommend them to others because they usually encourage you to get out of your comfort zone in some way.  It may be by asking you to create a layout with a kit or style that’s not your typical go-to colors or style.  This month’s Use It All challenge is provided by Alexis Design Studio.  Lexy’s kits are always beautiful and include flowers and lace with a feminine touch.  Here’s the layout I created using the mini kit she has provided.  Did I tell you I also love envelopes or pockets I can fill?

 


Check out the challenge here.  Isn’t amazing how many different looks can be achieved?

February Mystery Box Challenge

The Mystery Box Challenge at Pickleberrypop is always fun.  You never know what you’re going to get but it’s always filled with a bunch of gorgeous goodies.  Here is my layout for this month.

Creating an Outlined Title with a Woven Ribbon

Do you like weaving ribbon through titles or other elements?  I do.  It adds dimension to the layout and is a really nice touch.  This is the challenge I’ve set up for January at Pickleberrypop. I hope you’ll join me in creating a layout with an outlined title and ribbon weaved through.

Here’s the layout I created.  Head on over to do the challenge here.

Mystery Box Challenge at Pickleberrypop

Have you ever played along with the Mystery Box Challenge at Pickleberrypop?  You don’t know what’s included until you open it & look inside.  November’s Mystery Box is from Jumpstart Designs and there is a lot of cute things included.  I can’t tell you what because, well, that would spoil the surprise!  Here’s the layout I created of my super cute grandson.  This gives you a peak at a few papers and elements that you’ll get.

Just a heads up, the “J” in the title is not in the Mystery box but I did make it out of a tag that is included. So, I guess, that’s another hint of what you’ll find inside.  Click on the Mystery Box preview below to go to the challenge at Pickleberrypop.

Use It All Challenge at The Digichick

The Use It All Challenge at The Digichick is always one of my favorites.  What’s not to like?  You get a free mini kit to create a layout and you get to take part in a challenge.  I’m always up for that.  In addition to the mini kit, I added a couple of elements from the full-size kit that was released this week.  I’ve included links to the challenge and the new kit which is on sale.
