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

I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas! My favourite time of year.

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!

Happy Fall Happy November, and I hope ya’ll have had a happy DSD!

This is Tasanee, Arizona Girl.  For this month’s challenge I was thinking about gratitude. It is where my mind is naturally turned as I anticipate celebrating Thanksgiving. I challenge you to create your layout around what you are grateful for. It could be a list, or a set of photos on the same subject matter (ie a set of photos of your mother). Don’t forget to journal and since we all love to have our layouts to receive some love, please take a moment to comment on some of the other layouts from the challenge.

Check out the forum thread for my layout. I will post it sometime this week.

Rules….

(1) You must use at LEAST 2 photos on your page and your layout must be unique, it 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, but make sure you give credit.

(4) Please post your layout in the Multiphoto Gallery HERE

(5) Come back to the Mulitple photo thread and post what you created, and link it to the gallery, so we can all 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.

Let’s see how creative you are and have fun!

At the end of the month, everyone will get a participation prize, this mini kit. If you do all the challenges this month you will end up with a fantastic collab kit “The Outdoor Life”

November 2014 PROGRESSIVE Scrap Challenge

Welcome to the November Progressive Challenge.

Howdy it’s Ginger, of Ginger’s Scraps N Pixels here to get you’all started on this month’s Progressive Scrap. This month’s theme is “The Outdoor Life”  having raised two boys and being a Boy Scout Leader for 17 years I know a little about the Outdoor Life not to mention living in rural Oklahoma.

The contributors for this month’s Progressive are, Vicki of Dana’s Footprint Design and Darlene of Studio4 Designworks.

So let’s get started 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 & Darlene of Studio 4 Designwork.

——————————————————————————

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!

Prompt 1: You will find 8 papers and 1 torn matte.  Use 1 paper as the background, another paper as 2 different sides with a space between.  Next you can use another paper or the torn matte to create a 3 layer. Creating the space and the 2 sides will make a focal point for your layout.
