Each month here at Simple Scrapper, we will host a new scrapbook challenge with tons of inspiration from our team to get you started!
Last week, we featured our team using thirteen different ways to tweak your templates. As a recap, here are the methods:
- Shrink it
- Add more photos
- Get rid of some photos
- Turn it on its head
- Spin it one way
- Tilt it
- Make a card
- Double it
- Cut it in half
- Make it another size
- Flip it
- Create something entirely different
- Stretch it out
To participate in the challenge, choose a sketch or template from any designer (including our own) and twist it using one of the thirteen methods above. Upload your digital or paper layout to any public gallery and use the linky embedded in this post to officially enter the challenge.
One random challenge participant who enters by 9:59pm CST on Friday, February 24 will be selected to win a $15 print credit from Persnickety Prints.
Persnickety Prints is our choice for mail order printing. In case you don’t want to wait, Persnickety is having an excellent President’s Day sale. Get all 8×8 prints for just $0.79 with the code “honestabe”!
My layout is #2, but I got an error message from the Linky folks saying that there MIGHT have been a problem, so I’m not entirely sure that it got linked correctly. If there is, I’d be happy to try again
It’s fine Barbara. Thanks!
Thanks, Jennifer! I don’t want to do anything that might jeopardize my chance of winning that awesome PP prize. 🙂
I don’t get it? What is the value if you do not show the template you start with? How would anyone know what you have tweaked?
It’s on the honor system Liz. You can find lots of examples in our original post.
But wouldn’t it be much more illustrative to have both examples linked? I tweak and push and change templates all the time… have several I am working on at the moment…anyway if no ones sees what you started with, they really cannot appreciate what you have done…from the stand point of learning. So as I understand it they do not have to be published, can be taken right from my computer to the linky thing? and I assume one does not have to fill the first box with any kind of url? …and then just a thumbnail shows here? that’s it? Can I do more than one?
The minimum requirement is an image of your page and your email address. One entry per person please.
Thanks…Will see what I can come up with…
Hey Jennifer…got it posted but just one comment…I DID have to upload it on line…it would not let me take it from my computer.. Said I had to have a URL in the top box and would not budge without one…
Linked up my layout 🙂 – thanks for the great template-tweaking tips, I love using templates and it’s a great reminder that templates aren’t a barrier to original expression – they are just a catalyst for my own creativity! I resized the photo and paper spots in the template I used to better fit with my square photo.
