Hello friends, and welcome to National Scrapbook Day 2017 here at Elle’s Studio! We are excited to celebrate this amazing hobby that connects us to like-minded friends and documents our photos and memories!
First, to help you tell those important stories in your life, we’ve created a free printable to celebrate this special day! You’ll want to stop by our site to add it to your cart and download it for FREE!
Next, we have ten different challenges to get you inspired to create—whether that is with a scrapbook layout, mini album, pocket page or card, feel free to let these challenges inspire you with any project you are working on!
For each challenge we will draw one winner (for a total of 10 winners) and each winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to our shop!
BONUS: Every challenge entry is ALSO an entry into our GRAND PRIZES! Meaning, the more challenges you complete, the bigger chance you have to WIN:
- Grand prize: A year subscription to our monthly kit
- 2nd place prize: $50 gift card
- 3rd place prize: $25 gift card
Let’s check out the challenges:
Challenge #1 | Use mixed media on your project, like Allie Stewart did here with a background of yellow paint. We love that she paired this fun technique with the new Live Laugh Love Collection!
Challenge #2 | Decorate on a diagonal, like Maggie Massey did with our colorful Vellum Hearts and Stars.
Challenge #3 | Create a card for Mom or Dad, like Tessa Buys did with our April 2017 Kit and our Mom and Dad Acrylic and Wood Sets. You’ll be glad you did this before Mother’s or Father’s Day comes around.
Challenge #4 | Pair colorful photos with bold, bright tags, like Nancy Damiano did in this tropical pocket page using our April 2017 Kit and fun Puffy Alphabet Stickers in Orchid, Pink, Teal and Sky Blue.
Challenge #5 | Use a cut file as a predominant design feature, like Neela Nalam did here with our April 2017 Digital Cut File. We love that she added the Enamel Dots, Puffy Heart Stickers and Wood Confetti to the die-cut circles!
Challenge #6 | Fill your layout with shapes, like the cut paper and photo triangles that Candace Perkins used on her layout, created with the Live Laugh Love 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection and 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack. Think about other shapes too, like stars and hearts!
Challenge #7 | Document a favorite food, like Jill Sprott did on this page with her pecan pie recipe and photo, using the April 2017 Kit.
Challenge #9 | Create a traveler’s notebook spread, like Andrea Gray did here to document her colorful shoes, which paired so nicely with the April 2017 Kit, Vellum Hearts and Stars and Puffy Heart Stickers.
Challenge #10 | Create with an embellished grid like Jen Schow did on this page using our Live Laugh Love Double-Sided Journaling Tags and Vellum Hearts and Stars. This classic page design can be kicked up to the next level with fun embellishments that transcend the hard lines.
