Hi, Debbie here, with Adornit’s monthly scrapbooking challenge! April’s theme is “Daily Travels.” Remember that the purpose of this year-long challenge is to help you scrap “bits and pieces of everyday life.” I want you to end up with ten layouts that focus on little things that you wouldn’t ordinarily scrapbook about – the everyday moments that are quickly forgotten.
Each month I’ll announce three required elements that you must have on your layout. I will also suggest a theme – but using the theme is optional. Just remember that to be entered into the monthly prize drawing, you WILL have to use the three required elements. And you’ll have to post your layout somewhere so we can see it! If you come back to this post and link to the Mr. Linky gadget at the bottom, we’ll be able to find your layout. You can also post it to our Facebook fan page (instructions at the end of this post).
The Challenge Requirements are:
- something scalloped
- photo with YOU in it!
- mini alphabet or small cut-out letters
Now what could your layout have on it? Here are some ideas for you: A photo of your car – inside or outside, a photo of YOU inside your car, a photo of kids in their car seats, a page about your commute, a page about carpools, photo of the scenery you see as you drive, a page of YOU on your daily jog or walk, anything that tells about your everyday travels.
Check out our examples – we used papers and elements from Adornit’s new Destination Collection for our pages (available in stores now).
This is Alison Lindhart’s layout. Ali is a graphic designer here at Adornit. In fact, she designed the Destination Collection – how fun for her to create a layout with product she designed! Cute stuff. Alison is an awesome designer.
And here is my layout. I also used supplies from the Destination Collection. All product is from Adornit, except the large title letters are Anna Griffin. Click here to see a selection of Adornit mini alphabets that you can use for your small journaling.
