The Mystery Box Challenge has become one of my favorites. You never know what you’re going to get until you download it. Since many designers contribute a portion to the kit it can contain a variety of styles. While that can be challenging it also means you have an opportunity to step out of your comfort zone which is a great way to grow. Remember, if you always stay in your comfort zone there is less chance to learn something new.
Here is the layout I created with this month’s mystery box. To create the circles at the bottom of the page I used a white paper with blue polka dots and applied a blend mode. It’s the same paper I used for the photo mat.
In case you’re wondering, the fonts used are Happy-Txt Abrasive and Boy-Carolina Mountains.
Are you up for a challenge? Head on over and grab The Mystery Box Challenge kit. Then come back and tell me one or two things that challenged you.
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?
Wow! I can not believe it is March already. Time is flying by at warp speed. A new month means a new Photo Challenge in our Digi Scrapping Divas Facebook group.
As you can see, this month’s challenge is about photos. The object is to make layouts using one or more of the challenge words. You can make as many layouts, with as many combinations, as you like. Then post your layouts in the albums created for this month’s challenge. After you post a layout simply make a comment on it then it will post to the page for everyone to see. You’ll feel the love as other scrappers in the group oooohh, aaaahhh and sometimes lift your fabulous work. If you haven’t already joined the group, what’s the hold up? We actually have several groups, check them all out here.
