September Reader Challenge: Scrapbook with a Map

by | Sep 12, 2012 | Sponsors & Giveaways | 2 comments

Team member Ronnie Crowley will be sharing ideas and inspiration from our team for the reader challenge each month.

This month’s Simple Scrapper challenge:

Use a map, paper or scanned, or a map-themed paper in a new layout.

The map can be a scan of a map, an actual map, a picture of a map, or a piece of map scrapbooking paper. If its a map you can use it to complete this challenge.

The Simple Scrapper Team created layouts as inspiration for the challenge:

Mandy Ross uses two maps in her layout to record how her plans as a high schooler didn’t quite work out as she dreamed in terms of where she planned to be. (credits)

Aimee Maddern was inspired by a pin from pinterest to create this layout about all the places she has traveled in 2012. (credits)

Jean Watson Manis was on a roll this month and the challenge inspired her to create three layouts – in the end this one was her favorite. (credits) Check out her gallery at two peas to see the rest of her layouts.

For my  map layout I found a map of the area of Florence we visited on the internet. I downloaded the map as jpeg which I then brought into photoshop and blended with a background paper to give it an antique look and to make the colors work with the pictures I was using. (credits)

Lisa Corbin-Polak also used a map from internet and took map from google to record to actual spot where her photos were taken. (credits)

Valerie  Mangan die cut circles from a road map of New Jersey, focusing on locations significant to her. She also replaced one of the photos spaces on the sketch with the longitude & latitude coordinates for her hometown in NJ. (credits)

Sue Althouse used the Map Theme on this page in two ways: A Map patterned paper from Studio Calico and Crate Paper peeks out subtly in the background. and a piece of the map from our travel brochure is used as a banner embellishment. I really like how she created her title block and the variety of fonts in this small area (credits)

Margrethe Aas Johnsen layout “I am here” takes a very different take on a map using a stamp image of the world. Using lot of “white” space she creates a beautifully balanced layout. (credits)

Julie Aldridge uses a whole variety of maps to create her page. Adding her plane ticket wallet adds a final touch to a great layout about her travels. (credits)

Kate Christenson used a map of Michigan to record a trip they made to visit her Dads home town. She used digital map pins to mark the places they visited. (credits)

Michele Holcomb has her map as a background paper. Adding her matted pictures on top of this with a neutral mat to help them pop off the busy map. (credits)

Jeryn Carlisi – created this layout using a great banner for her title and I just love that plane which provides motion to the page. (credits)
