  1. Thanks Kathy! I can't believe you have trouble with templates. I often think of them as a springboard for something else. I love templates!!! I often combine multiples to one page. I am sure you will do awesome!
  2. Hi everyone!! How is everyone’s new year going? I can’t believe it’s already been two weeks since we rang in the new year! I have been digital scrapping now for almost five years! Five years! My style has definitely evolved. Most of my layouts now have lots of flower clusters. I remember there was a time I didn’t even know how to make a cluster. Something I still struggle with are clean and simple layouts. Heck sometimes those take me longer than a super clustery layout. They never seem like they are finished. Is there enough embellishing? I am getting better with them. It doesn’t take me as long anymore but I still am not comfortable. So for this challenge I want you to scrap a layout that is out of your comfort zone. If you only scrap art journal layouts, try a traditional looking page. If you always scrap minimal, try to fill your page to the rim. I think you get the idea. Get out of your comfort zone. IMPORTANT Besides making a layout, you have to tell me how this style of scrapping is different from your usual scrap style in this thread with your layout. Here is my layout using a clean and simple design: Please upload your layout into the Challenge Gallery and post a link to it here in this thready by January 15. You can find directions for uploading layouts to the gallery here and how to link the layout to this post here. And now for the prizes (all prize winners chosen randomly): • (1) $30.00 discount coupon towards a class of your choice • (1) $20.00 discount coupon towards a class of your choice • (1) $10.00 discount coupon towards a class of your choice You can only win one prize per challenge each month. **Please note** There are two challenges per month and you can now save your discount coupons and combine them to be used at a later date for a class or live event.
  3. That sounds awesome! Maybe one day you will learn to love those layouts. I used to hate clustering, couldn't do it at all, but now I find them easy. They say practice practice practice!!
  4. I think a lot of people feel the same way. It does make for a very clean looking page though.
