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

I hope everyone is doing great and is finding time to scrap! This is my busy time of year and I would love to spend more time scrapping:)

Anyway! On to the 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.
(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 Digi Dish Challenge Gallery HERE.
(5) Come back here and post what you created, and link it to the gallery, so we can all leave you some love!

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!

This challenge runs through May 31st.

I can’t wait to see your fabulous layouts!

JUNE 2014 PROGRESSIVE Scrap Challenge
Welcome to the JUNE Progressive Challenge.
Darlene here, of Studio4 Designworks, and after a little hiatus from the challenge – I’M BACK – I will be your host this month.
The other contributors and hosts you know well, Ginger of Ginger of Gingers Scraps N Pixels & Vicki of Dana’s Footprint Digital Design.

So let’s get to the task at hand and have some fun! The object of the Progressive is to complete one page over the course of three weeks by following instructions given in tasks posted each week. A progressive scrap is a *slow* speed scrap and I know lots of you like speed scraps, but may not have the time. So here’s how it will work.

On the first of each month, Prompt 1 will be posted, consisting of instructions for starting a scrapbook page that will then be built upon through additional instructions every 3 days.

The idea is to work along with the challenge as the tasks are being announced, each task to be completed & posted prior to starting on the next prompt. (Once you post a prompt’s results, you’re finished. Don’t change your work for that particular prompt.)

At the end of the third week, you should have a completed page!

It’s fine to start late or catch up if you miss a prompt. Just be sure to complete & post each task before you look at or start the next one. It’s more fun that way!

I will be giving you a download that consists of either papers or ellies to work with on each prompt. By the end of the Challenge, you will have a great little kit that was created by myself and Vicki of Dana of Dana’s Footprint Designs & Ginger of Ginger’s Scraps ’N Pixels.

So to recap – here’s the order:

1. On the first day of the month we will post Prompt 1. Then, there will be a post every three days with a new prompt.

2. Add only the items listed in the prompt given. You may add/alter shadows at any time.

3. Once you’ve posted your layout for that particular prompt, it is done and you may not go back and change it. You may only build on the previous prompt layout following the new step for the next prompt.

4. We will post the prompts sequentially in the thread. If you have missed a prompt, it’s fine to start late or catch up. Just be sure to complete & post each task before you look at or start the next one.

5. Post your layouts no later than midnight (EST) of the day before the next step is due – this will be every three days.

6. Post your layouts in the *Progressive Challenge* gallery HERE.

7. Link your layout back to this forum thread so we can have a look at your creations and leave you some love!

8. In lieu of a posting bonus, by the end of the challenge, you will have yourselves a nice little kit.

9. This challenge counts towards the Scrapping 7 Challenge!

Here is the kit you will have by the time you are done – HE’S MY DAD. It coordinates with the lovely collab the designers have created this month along with Posting Bonuses for other challenges. You will have a lovely HUGE kit when you are done if you participate in all of the challenges!

Studio4 He's My Dad ALL Preview_600
PROMPT 1 – Sunday, June 1st
Zip one has seven papers in it. Choose one as your background. Chose another to place over it. You may reduce the size and rotate it if you like. Take a third paper and reduce the size of it so it’s smaller than the first two and place it on top. Now I want you to take another paper and crop it to about 1/3 the size of the original paper size (it doesn’t have to be exact and can be a bit smaller). You can make it a rectangle (horizontal or vertical) and place it either vertically or horizontally. But choose well as you’ll be placing ellies all around this. This is going to be a paper that will contain some journaling in a later prompt, so keep that in mind – you must leave room for some text.


Post your first prompt in the GALLERY and then back here so we can all see and enjoy what we’re all doing! Please leave some love on each others layouts as it always nice to see some comments.
Have your layout posted for Prompt 1 by Wednesday, June 4th, 4pm CST.

Hi!  Tricia of Seoul 2 Soul Scraps here. Welcome to the June Font Challenge!

I have an exciting challenge for this month. This idea was presented to me by Els AW and sounds like a lot of fun. She told me about a website called PaintFont where you can have your personal handwriting turned into a font for FREE!

So, yoru challenge this month is to use your own handwriting font for your journaling. If you do not have the equipment needed to print the template and scan your handwriting for the PaintFont service, I have a workaround for you.  Simply write your journaling on a piece of paper, photograph it, and include it on your layout somewhere. The important part is to chronicle your personal handwriting. I think it is a great legacy to leave!

For participating in this month’s challenge, you will receive this tiny kit from Lyllah Raven Designs.


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

Please be sure to credit the designer’s kit/s when you post to the gallery. Please follow the terms of use for the font used in this challenge.

Layouts are due by midnight on June 30 in order to receive the prize!
