Santa Puzzle

I had every intention of creating a digital page out of the sketch for the As You See It Challenge this week, but my cardstock was calling my name.

All those boxes are just dying to be filled with photos and journalling…will have to do that later this week me thinks.  But, for now I have made a super cute Santa Puzzle card.

My son Liam saw it when it was almost done and he said it was like a puzzle. I agreed…a Santa puzzle.

As You See It Colour Challenge

Truly, the colours for the As You See It Challenge this week are NOT my colours…. I’m not much of a pastel person whatsoever.

But I managed to pull off a pastel scrapbook page. In fact it is a scrapbook page with my BOYS on it. I am impressed. I have stretched beyond my usual creative ground, that makes today a good day 🙂

My Project 49-001

Ok, so perhaps this particular page does not jive with the current season. I opted to go with an Easter theme for these pastel colours.

I actually started with a designer template in My Digital Studio. The Special Delivery Subtle Kit already had the paper, embellishments, photo boxes, text boxes and a title all ready for me.  Here is the template I chose ->

My Project 50-001

Then I just made it my own, by recolouring some of the paper and embellishments and adding a title that fit with my photos.  It came together VERY quickly.

Anyhoo….it goes to show that if I can use these colours, then ANYBODY can. Hope you play along with us at As You See It.

Comfort Zone

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”― Neale Donald Walsch

Lounging about in your comfort zone can be a creative death sentence.

So…. this long weekend I launched myself ENTIRELY out of my comfort zone and onto a new creative planet!  I have begun creating a new Challenge Blog!

For those of you who are curious, a challenge blog is a site where designers use an idea to create projects to inspire and then EVERYONE (that’s you!) gets to use the idea and submit their own projects.

For those of you who follow other challenge blogs, this one is going to be super-fabulous and you will want to follow this one too.

The new Challenge Blog will have:

  • sketch challenges where you use the sketch as a starting point for a card or scrapbook page
  • colour challenges where you have to use certain colours on your project
  • theme challenges, ie. animals or wedding
  • telephone game (stay tuned for this fun one)
  • fill in the blank challenge (one that’ll get your creativity bubbling)

I’m working with some amazing gals that will be on the design team and will be making this Challenge-blog UBER-FABULOUS.  Just you wait and see.

SO???? Are you curious what it’s called and how it’s shaping up??
