Hi Gossamer Blue fans. Angie Gutshall here with you today to welcome you to the May edition of our Member Scraplift Challenge.
Not only can you participate in the challenge for a chance to win $10 to the store, you can also win $10 to the store if I choose your layout to lift for the challenge. Congrats to Keianna Price! I chose Keianna’s layout to use this month. Keianna, please email email@example.com to receive your prize.
I love how Keianna used lots of white space and focused on the picture.
I don’t do 8.5 x 11 so I created the same look on a 12 x 12. I love how she put her photo way off to the left side and also the fun little stripe of embellishments she created up in the right corner.
Are you ready to take the scraplift challenge? Leave a comment below with a link to your layout and the layout that inspired you by May 31st for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the store.
I look forward to seeing your creations! Check back next month when I pick a new layout to scraplift (it could be you)!
We are excited to announce that our super talented June Guest Designer is May Flaum. May’s blog is full of inspiration and wit. It’s a great place to visit to find videos, tutorials, artsy finds and fun. May is currently working on her June kit projects and we are looking forward to sharing them with you on June 1st.
May also teaches classes at Big Picture Classes. Her newest class is Camp Scrap and she has generously given us TWO spots in her class to giveaway.
Camp Scrap is a craft-from-home summer retreat.
The class runs from 6/6/2013-7/3/2013 and is $29.
Camp Scrap 2013 is the place to be this summer! Spend the entire month of June scrapbooking with May Flaum and hundreds of her closest friends in an online, choose-your-own-adventure paper crafting camp. You’ll enjoy more than 50 new and exclusive projects from May, a dozen “mini class” videos with accompanying handouts, daily emails, a bustling student message board and gallery, and more!
This 4-week workshop includes all the fun, instruction, and inspiration you’d find at an in-person scrapbooking retreat. But you get to participate entirely from home in your shorts and flip-flops (or whatever counts as your comfort gear for summer).
You can read more and find a supply list here.
Sounds like an amazing class! For a chance to win a spot leave us a comment by Tuesday, May 28th. We will draw two names at random and announce the winners on Wednesday, May 29th.
Hello Everyone! Naomi here with a tutorial for another fun way to use those May cut files.
I really enjoyed the 3 by 4 cards this month, and I used them on another layout. I also used them in my project life, I really love them! But how about all of cute windows left after you cut the cards out? They can be used as a fun way to house a lot of fun embellishments or smaller photos. For the Montreal layout, I decided to do just that.
I originally was going to put smaller photos in the windows. I decided though that for this layout, I wanted to keep the photos bigger to show the city and the cathedral. So when I laid out in silhouette studio how I was going to cut the windows,
I made sure that I had enough space to allow room for my photos in the middle. I used the windows to back with some of my favorite patterned papers, stickers, embellishments and my title. I also backed the one window with a favorite journaling card from the Simple Stories pack. This technique would also be a great way to use several photos on one layout, or to document a succession of events. Hope you are inspired to try something similar with your leftovers after you cut your journaling cards!
