Welcome to the June Digi Dish Challenge. Are you ready to do some digiscrap baking?

My computer died. My computer guy has it and said that although there is little hope, that he will try and call me back. That was two weeks ago. I’m literally scared to call him. I know… I’m a wimp. But I have no backup for 8 months!!! Ugh.  For this month’s challenge I have tried to borrow a computer to do the recipe, but no one has Photoshop, so I have given up and hand wrote the recipe. I hope you can read it! It’s not really my handwriting… but better than nothing:)

Anyway, enough about me! Onto this month’s challenge!

For this challenge, you should create a layout using at least the ingredients listed on the recipe. You can then add your own ingredients to make the layout your own! There is also a “Want More?” ingredient and an “optional” ingredient to add a little more to the recipe. They are both optional but are fun:) So, what are we waiting for?

Here is the recipe!

Additional info:

(1) Your layout must be unique, and can only be used for this challenge.

Since we all love prizes, there will be a participation prize for this challenge. The prize for this challenge will be a mini kit by Maria Designs. Woot!

{Preview of the mini COMING SOON}

 

This challenge runs until the last day of the month.

I can’t wait to see your fabulous layouts!

This month I have a Digital Challenge for you!

FIRST, I want to let you know that the dates of this challenge have changed. We are NOW going to run from the 1st of the month to the 30th, regardless.

I hope that makes things easier for you!

How many of you use Styles?? Paper styles, paint, pattern styles; I even have some paint marker styles! They are kind of like a mixed media palette for us digital Creatives!
It is fun to use them. But have you ever done something outside the box with styles?
Here’s the challenge for you!
Create something painted with styles.
Could be a flower, a rainbow, a star, anything BUT a paper/background.

Here are two items I made with this technique:

fun to play around with this.   A few highlight strokes and a bit of burning tool and it was done!

Upload your creation  to the gallery (MMC) and bring it here so we can “oooo” – and
“ahhhh!”
A random generator will pick one lucky person to get a $3.00 coupon for my shoppe.
This will be done on June 30. :)


If you don’t know how this works, I have posted a video demonstration/tutorial in the

Hello again. Tasanee here aka Arizona Girl. It is my turn this month to host the Scraplift challenge and Elsina will be back next month.

For this month I wanted to find a page that had more than one photo, I was hoping to find a page with 3 or 4 but when I found this page
from Sarahm172, I decided to go with it. I love the layering, more than one photo, and that it still have white space. What stands out to you? What inspires you? Run with that inspiration! Your layout should be inspired by hers, not it doesn’t have to be a copy of her page.

 

Here are the rules

 

(1) Your layout must be unique, and can only be used for this challenge.
(2) Your layout also counts as one entry towards the Scrappin’ 7 Challenge.
(3) Use of GDS products is strongly encouraged and greatly appreciated.
(4) Please post your layout in the Scraplift Challenge Gallery HERE
(5) Post the layout here in this thread and a link to it in the gallery so we can leave you some love.
(6) HAVE FUN!

Do you all know how to link your images back to the gallery? .. If not, have a look HERE
Also… HERE‘s how to assign keywords to your layouts to give the credit back to the designer.

Everyone who participates in this challenge will receive this portion of the “Graceful” posting bonus collab.
If you complete all challenges (and extras like speed scraps) you will end up with the fabulous collab below.
