Whoa! I can't believe we're on Sketch #5! I am challenged every time I create a new layout/sketch -love stretching that creative muscle. If you're following along pleeeease link me up to your pages in the comments. :)
The Scrap Your Stash Challenge is a twice a month challenge aimed at helping you complete two (2) layouts per month with a total of twenty-two (22) by the end of the year at the same time using your DDE stash. New sketches will be posted on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of every month. Your layouts should be completed and uploaded before a new sketch is posted. Share your finished pages by uploading them to DDE's flickr pool for a chance to win a $10 DDE gift certificate. A random gift certificate winner will be chosen from the pool for each sketch. If you don't have a flickr account you can post a link to your page in the comments section. Remember, this is a "use your DDE stash" challenge so a majority of your pages should have DDE products. Sketches do not have to be followed to a "T". You can be as creative as you wish by turning a sketch sideways, adding lots of embellishments or taking the minimalist route -they are just a starting point. So, what say you? Are you up for round 5? Let's do this!
• Use Sketch #5 as inspiration to create a layout using Digital Design Essentials products.
• Upload your page to DDE's flickr pool or post a link to your layout in the comments by Saturday, April 26th for a chance to win a $10 DDE gift certificate.
This is a super fun sketch to work with. This is my then 13 year old son (I know, right) after his 8th grade Valentine's Day dance. It's so funny, the top left photo was suppose to be a full length shot but our dog photo bombed so you see my son looking down. In the original photo it's my son and our dog -I cropped out our dog (sorry Jake) and I think it turned out pretty good. I clipped papers to the pie charts -I believe photos would look awesome, too. I also use the freebie watercolor brush on the very top white patterned paper, makes it look totally different. I think you can get really creative with this sketch. Can't wait to see your pages.
Congratulations Lorry Fach-Pedersen! You won the $10 DDE gift certificate. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your prize.
Happy Friday! If you're new to DDE today's freebie is a great way to sample my designs. If you're a loyal friend I hope you enjoy this little sampler that coordinates perfectly with the new Because I'm Happy Collection. Hope this gets your creative juices flowing and inspires you to go and make something -link me up if you do. ♥Gina
