    Todays challenge is to take a good hard look at this

    wonderful LO by French scrapper Shannon91 and create your version of a scraplift. (You can see more of her work over on her blog here)

    It doesn't have to be a replica of the layout.. I just want you to take at least three elements of it and include it in your LO.

    You will see there are lots of things to choose from, stamping, stars, circles, chevrons, numbers, banners, torn PP's, hearts, vellum, grids, masks, washi, etc, etc. Choose any three for 10 points.

    Secondly, as many of you know, I recently became a Granny so I would like you to use the theme of 'New Beginnings' for your photo for a further 10 points.

    Lastly, because I have a baby grand daughter, I would like you to use pink somewhere in your LO for the final 10 points.

    Welcome to The Classy Crafter's team challenge, I hope you enjoy it.

    As we hardly ever scrap ourselves, the first part of our challenge is exactly that - to scrap a photo of yourself at any stage in your life.

    We would also like you to include an interactive element to your page. This can be a flap to cover journalling or for more photos, a tag that needs to be pulled out or anything else that you can think of.

    Finally we would like you to use that bit of paper you have been saving for something special or those brads/eyelets you haven't used in a while, those paper flowers you bought by the jar when they were in vogue or anything else that you have had in your stash for a long time just waiting for till you found the perfect page to use it on.

    To recap -
    Scrap a photo of yourself 10 points

    Have an interactive element on your page 10 points

    Use something you have had in your stash for a long time 10 points

    I don't know about you but I have LOADS of photos spanning many years that need scrapping. I need to get some in my albums, so the first criteria for my challenge is to use more than two photos on your layout

    I also have collected TONS of leaflets, tickets, receipts, etc. from various trips and I need to get them cleared too ! The second criteria is to use memorablia of some sort on your layout

    and thirdly, I have been a bit of a sticker collector over the years - alphas, plus LOTS MORE !!
    Please use some stickers on your layout

    so to recap...
    1. More than 2 photos - 10 points
    2. Use some memorabilia - 10 points
    3. Use stickers - 10 points

    May Week 1

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Welcome to my first solo challenge despite being a member of UKS for many years; I hope you enjoy it!

    May the 4th is a Bank holiday in the UK, so I thought scrapbooking some holiday photos would fit the bill. To make life easy for you, by holiday I mean any holiday at any time of the year, so if you have summer, Christmas or Bank holiday photos in your pile waiting to be scrapped, now is your chance.

    I was lucky to travel to Spain for two city breaks over the Easter holiday just gone, as I celebrated my Silver Wedding Anniversary...with my husband too of course! Naturally I took a huge number of photos, so in an effort to get them scrapped I am making as many multi-photo layouts as possible. So could you make a muliti-photo page please, with a minimum of 3 photos?

    Finally, I know fashions come and go in scrapbooking, but one that just hasn't waned for me is the use of Kraft, so can you use Kraft somewhere on your page?

    Easy scoring this week, 10 points per category met.

    So, to sum up:
    Any holiday photos 10
    Multi (more than 3) photo page 10
    Use some Kraft 10

    Good morning scrappers, I’m really pleased to have the opportunity to set another solo challenge for you this week.
    I’ve noticed recently that the photographs I’m scrapping are beginning to feature places and things that have caught my eye either on vacation or out and about here in Normandy, so I’ve made that the main focus of this challenge.
    For 10 points use a photograph (s) that focuses on an object. Choose something like a building; statue; piece of art. A book; door; window; tree; plant; flower or even food!
    People or animals can be in the photo, if you want, but the star of the LO should be the “thing”.
    For 5 points include something black and white on the page.
    5 more points for including a cluster of embellishments, or one large embellie, somewhere on the LO.
    5 points for using white cardstock as the back ground.
    Finally, use a one word title for the remaining 5 points.

    Scrappy cats challenge
    Some of our team attended a local crop recently run by the Scrap cafe, they were challenged to create a LO based on their favorite movie poster, the results were fabulous, so we decided to spread this challenge to UKS.

    Our challenge is very simple - for all 30 points - Take inspiration from your favorite Movie Poster to make your LO. You could use the poster as a sketch, you could copy the fonts and colour schemes, or you could use a particular design element from the poster to inspire your LO. Hollywood spends thousands of $ paying the best graphic designers and artists to create movie posters, so why not use some of their ideas and expertise. We hope that you find a poster to inspire you. Movie poster link

    Ideally, we would love you to include a copy of the movie poster in your posting, but we know that not everyone knows how to / can be bothered to do this, so we have 2 other options:

    You have a free choice of movie posters for our challenge, but for those who don't want to surf the internet, here are some movie posters that our team like and think could inspire you (just tell us which one you have used), or use the link above to see some of the most iconic movie posters. Have a browse and tell us which poster you have used.

    Hello, I'm new2this and this is my second solo challenge .. Welcome.

    I was looking back at my old LOs and found a few that used a grid as a guide ... so I thought I would use one for this challenge.

    This is the one I chose ..



    Please use the grid - either as itself or as a sketch/guide - and at least 2 photographs .. 10 points. For another 10 points use either all cool colours or all warm colours - I am never sure which palette I like best, hence the choice!
    For the last 10 points, use a mixture of patterned papers and plain to fill all or some of the grid openings -- a 2>1 ratio would be nice.


    So:-

    1) Use the grid (itself or as a guide) and 2+ photos = 10pts
    2) Use either all COOL or all WARM colours = 10pts
    3) Use patterned/plain papers (2>1) = 10pts.

    MAY HOUSE CHALLENGE

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Welcome to the house challenge for MAY brought to you by the GREEN BUTTONS

    This month it is a word inspired challenge

    As we all talk about it so much we thought we'd go with a WEATHER theme

    Please create a layout inspired by the poem below...

    Whether the weather be fine
    Or whether the weather be not,
    Whether the weather be cold
    Or whether the weather be hot,
    We'll weather the weather
    Whatever the weather,
    Whether we like it or not.

    welcome to the scrap apples challenge. This week we hope to inspire you with new ideas, giggles and fun. Mostly fun ~ fun making the LO, fun recalling memories when searching for photos or stories, fun sharing them with friends

    1. use your LO to capture a fun moment ~ narrate a funny story or joke, use a photo of laughter, or a joke title
    2. adapt or follow the sketch below, using a sequence of photos or pattern papers in a line, or a film strip montage
    3. inject some colour ~ no predominantly white paper allowed (white embellishments, mats etc are ok)

    10 points for each

    sketch by Jennifer Wilson. Free template available here

    I am hopeless at scrapbooking so I need to follow a sketch - please use the one shown below.

    As June is a Gemini month - please use 2 (or more) photos - the 2 smaller photos on the sketch can be just one larger pic if you wish.

    Also - in USA (where else) June 15th is National Lobster Day !! so please use some red on your LO and also something to do with the sea/water.

    To recap :

    Use sketch - 10 points
    2 or more photos - 10 points
    Use red - 5 points
    Something to do with the sea/water - 5 points

    Thank you for joining in
