123 Challenge - July 2017 - Design Team Guest - Judy Willey

Welcome back to our July 123 Challenge and our Guest Design Team Member - Judy Willey....


I am so honoured to be asked to guest design for 123 Challenge this month. I loved the multi photo sketch and the colour combination.  I was inspired to use these photos of my grandchildren as the colours seemed to complement the many colours that the children were wearing!

I have been scrapping for many years and over that time I have tried lots of different techniques. However, I hope I have stuck to the idea that the purpose of scrapbooking is to document life’s moments both for myself and future generations (hopefully). I live in tropical north Queensland with my husband. We are so grateful that we are able to see our children and grandchildren often and they feature in much of my work. I love many forms of creative work and have a particular passion for sewing as well as scrapbooking so I do often combine the two.

Reveal - 123 Challenge - July 2017

Welcome to our July Challenge reveal which we know you will love creating with as it is the first of our new style challenges where we truly embrace the concept of 1 2 3.....



Our challenge requires you to use the Sketch we have provided from pagemaps.com, which you can flip or rotate as needed – just let us know in your blog post what you did with the sketch and how you approached it.



You also need to use both of the words HAPPY & TIME as either your title or inspiration – and once again let us know how you have used the words on your layout in your blog post.

Last but not least we have provided you with three colours to use – PALE PINK, SILVER & LIGHT BLUE – which you must use, but they are not the only colours you can use as you can add other colours as long as these three are the main colours.

Entry Rules: To be eligible to win or be invited to be a Guest on our Design Team you must use the sketch, the words and the colours we have provided on a Scrapbook Layout no smaller than 8.5"x11". You also need to provide your name and country when linking your entry (at the top left of our site). As our challenge is now a sketch, two words and three colours we ask that you create a new layout that is not entered in any other challenges. Most importantly – Have Fun!

Our Design Team and special Guest Judy Willey have created layouts with our July Challenge to inspire you, and some of them have even shared their inspiration and how they have used the challenge too....

"Turned the sketch on the side. Used happy place in the title and jounalling."


Lizzy

"My inspiration for this challenge came by the words 'happy time' and also the soft colors led me to use some papers that were Christmas themed, and when I found the photos of my daughter in a silver dress, I began to create using the sketch for the foundation.."

123 Challenge - May 2017 - Design Team Guest - Romy

Welcome back to our May 123 Challenge and our Guest Design Team Member - Romy Veul....


Hi! My name is Romy Veul and I'm a 23-yearold avid scrapbooker and cardmaker from the Netherlands. I started scrapbooking over 10 years ago and haven't looked back ever since. I love documenting my memories, crafting with papers and being creative. My style could be best described as detailed, romantic and layered. I like working with lots of embellishments, while still trying to keep my photo as the main focus of my lay-out. You can find my creations on my blog www.scrapstuffandmore.blogspot.com. Thank you, Alicia, for the wonderful opportunity to guest design for 123 Challenges! It was an honour to make a lay-out as an example for this challenge.
