As part of the Unity Stamp Co. Design Team, I am going to start posting Monday Simple Scrapbook challenges over on our forum on Splitcoaststampers. I am just going to copy/paste my thread from there over here so that you guys can play along too.
Welcome to our Simple Scrapbook Challenge Mondays!!! Every Monday, I am going to bring you a challenge to get you scrapbooking. Whether you are an old-hand at scrapbooking or someone that has never taken the plunge, we hope that you will play along.We have several people in our forum that have never tried scrapbooking, but have expressed an interest in getting started so we hope to keep these challenges (esp. at first) easy enough so that they can comfortably play along.
In the beginning here, that is probably going to mean lots of sketches because that tends to be a really easy way to start scrapbooking.
So let’s get started! Here's today's sketch.
You will find that I am a challenge junkie, but that is because they are such a good venue for creating. That being said, let me explain here that your creation is the most important part of this challenge. If you start on this sketch and you end up with something that in the end looks nothing like the sketch, then that is AWESOME! You created a project and that is the point. Still come back and link us up and if it’s not real obvious explain your creation process to us. That’s how we all learn to move and mold our creative muse to work for us. Make this sketch work for you…I am okay if you change it for what looks best on your individual project.
There are no real rules here, but here are a few quick guidelines. We want you to get scrapbooking so using a photo is good (even if that means that you use the sketch to create a card with a photo on it.) This is the Unity Stamp Company forum so we would like for you to use some of our stamps too if you have them. Finally, upload to the Splitcoast gallery (there is a scrapbooking section in the categories) and use Unity and USS01 as your keywords, then come back here (and the weekly link thread) and link us up!
Here is my interpretation of this sketch:
*Unity Stamp Company Worn PolkaDot alpha
*Unity Just Be single
*Unity Everlasting Romance single
*Unity Live the LIfe You Love single
*Unity Circle of Thanks kit
*Scenic Route graph paper
*Fiskars Threading Water punch
The photo in this layout is one that my mom took when we were on our picnic last week. Wow! It's hard to believe that was just a week ago...it's been a LONG week.
