    Hi Scrappers,

    Yes it's 2016, so I couldn't resist coming up with a challenge to create a project that sums up 2015 for you.

    Your design should include a grid, something red, be it big or small as long as it's in there and bling of some description either metallic, rhinestones or glitter.

    I look forward to seeing your makes.

    The scrap apples would like to welcome you to our challenge this week. We've taken '2016' as our inspiration to build the layout and you too can do the same using this recipe:

    2 = two word title / two photos / two page layout (10 points)
    0 = use a circle (5 points)
    1 = follow one sketch from the selection below (5 points)
    6 = six of something...papers / embellishments / lines of journalling (10 points)

    February Week 2

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Welcome to my solo challenge - Feb week 2

    I've been trying to sort out my stash, and thinking of ways to use it. I have some very old stash, which started me reminiscing about techniques I used a lot in the early days, so....

    For 10 points please use some vellum
    For another 10 points include some paper tearing on your layout
    And finally, for 10 points, because I love the look but am rubbish with a sewing machine, please create a patchwork design using patterned papers for your background - it can be as simple or as fancy as you desire, and can fill the entire background or just part of it

    Look forward to seeing what you all come up with

    Happy scrapping
    Alison xx

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hello, welcome to my solo version for the Weekly challenge.

    I find it hard to start a LO without either a sketch or a colour to inspire me - so for this challenge, with 10 points for each element - I would like you to:-

    Choose ONE photograph; pick ONE colour from that photograph (that includes its whole range from lightest to darkest) and use it and just neutrals for your LO; use a ONE word title.

    Summary:
    1) use ONE photograph = 10 pts
    2) use ONE colour from the photo (full range + neutrals) = 10 pts
    3) use ONE word title = 10 pts.

    I hope this will inspire you .. but most importantly, ENJOY.

    Frances/new2this

    Welcome to my challenge (as usual posted early as I worry about forgetting!)

    I spent some time thinking about what to do and came up with the idea of old versus new...
    I have such a mixture of stash from over the years and need to use more of it. I thought it would be interesting to see what people used from their own collections.
    So, choose one thing to use from each choice in the list (5 points each)
    (so your layout could be all 'new' all 'old' or a mixture of both)

    1. use brads/eyelets or enamel dots
    2. use your handwriting to journal or a computer
    3. use plain cardstock or diecut it/use mixed media on it
    4. use paper older than 2 years or less than 6 months
    5. use individual alphas or a whole word
    6. use fussy cutting/scissors/punches or a die cut (from a machine or bought ephemera)

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Welcome to my first solo challenge,
    As we are still celebrating Easter it got me thinking about what Easter symbolizes, new life, fresh starts and new beginnings. My mum and dad have just celebrated their 59th wedding anniversary and as I was looking through some old photos a few of my wedding day came to light.

    So for this challenge I would like you to scrap about a new Beginning this could be the birth of a baby, a wedding, new job etc - 10 points

    As I am a lover of sketches (I seem to use them a lot of the time) I would like you to use the sketch I found from Valerie salmon got sketch - 10 points

    As it is now officially spring I would like you to use a bloom or two - 5 points

    and for the final part of the challenge use some lace or ribbon. - 5 points
