52 Week Challenge - Weeks 16, 17, & 18

Week # 16 – Scraplift a Topic
Again, this is another example that is illustrated in the book. The example that is used in the book is the topic of how much one loves their camera, so she scraplifted that topic.
Choose ANY topic and scrap it! Maybe the challenge should had said, scraplift a SUBJECT instead! =)


Week #17 – Scraplift an Alphabetical Approach
Elsie loves how “Julie) used so many different types of letters on her page. She also loved how she customized them to fit her personal style. Experiment with letters on a scrapbook page, and make them your own by embellishing them in a way that suits your scrapbooking personality! (So…basically choose a letter in the alphabet, attempt to use several in your layout maybe as a focal point?)

Week #18 – Scraplift a Page DesignElsie likes to challenge herself by pushing limits of what a scrapbook page can be. Blank space on a layout can be super effective. Try something different by leaving a lot of blank space on a page

1st WhoGas Recipe Swap!

WhoGivesaScrap Recipe Swap
Deadline: July 20, 2009


-All “layouts” must be 6x6.-All recipes must be typed.
-All recipes must say: From the Kitchen of: (Your Name) so that each person will know who the recipe came from.
-You may use as many embellishments or techniques as you wish. These are your recipes – have fun with them!
-You must make a recipe for every person participating in the swap. For example, if ten people are participating in the swap, then you need to make 30 recipe layouts. Ten people x 3 categories = 30 6x6 layouts.

This shouldn't be too hard because there are no pictures involved.

*We have 8 participants so you will be making a total of 24 cards*

So we have thought about our recipes and here is what we have to look forward to below!
Woo hoo!!! Sounds all yummy!

I do ask for all to keep in mind your commitment and please be sure to follow through so that everyone receives the same they have made.

You will be responsible for mailing your recipes to each person in the swap. They must be mailed out no later than July 20th. This gives you a little over 3 months. You can do this, ladies!
