View Full Version : Recipe challenge - May 7th

05-04-2012, 07:49 AM
Hi everyone, I'm back with another recipe challenge to hopefully inspire you with!

I've tried not to make it too tricky this month, as I'm sure we're all busy recovering from the iNSD festivities :)

So here are the rules :

Choose a person or a topic that is under represented in your scrapbooks.
Use at least one journalling card, these things are everywhere at the moment and they're lovely for journalling on.
Use at least five haberdashery items (buttons, stitches, ribbon...).
More than one paper (as the opposite was so difficult last month!).
Hang your elements off the edge of the page.

Here's my page, I've used items from a Grab Bag (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/2012-iNSD-Grab-Bag-by-Stolen-Moments.html) by one of our fabulous May Guests, Stolen Moments Designs (http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Stolen-Moments).


I chose to do a page about my husband as he's definitely the person who apparently got the short straw when it comes to being the subject of layouts. I do loads about my girls, force myself to layouts about me and there it tends to stop!

So get scrapping, and I'm looking forward to seeing your pages!

Here’s the fine print:

You must use at least 75% Digichick Goodies on your layout to qualify for points.
When you’ve finished your layout, come back to this post and leave a comment with a link to your layout. (Feel free to use our open gallery here (http://www.thedigichick.com/gallery/) at the Digichick if you need a place to upload your layout. We even have a spot just for challenge entries (http://www.thedigichick.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=509)!)
You will earn 1 Point for participating in this challenge.
For more information about our Chickie Points System, please see this thread here (http://www.thedigichick.com/forums/showthread.php?34471-Chickie-Points-System%21).
The deadline for this challenge is May 31st.

I just LOVE that word habadashery, Americans don't use it enough. I scrapped me, since I don't do that as much as I should. Been having a wonderful, life changing year so far. Thanks for a great recipe Jude!

I used etc by Danyale’s absentminded kit and Bella Gypsy’s Sketchology Sampler, Template 3.
I decided to scrap myself, and my propensity to lose things. Ok, maybe everything.

Here is the older of my 2 brothers, somewhat under represented in my scrapping. (Since I have a rather limited number of pages, almost everyone is under represented. Working on remedying that!)
