Hooray for National (or International for our friends across the border or overseas!) Scrapbooking Day! We love documenting our memories, and making it easier for you to do the same by providing you with beautiful, coordinated products. We also love the community that this hobby has created, and we are so thankful for each one of YOU, our loyal readers and customers.
We wanted to treat you to something special to celebrate the day!
The celebration of this special day continues with five fun challenges! Not only can these challenges help you create something truly spectacular, and get your memories recorded, but you’ll also be able to enter to WIN some BIG prizes!
Challenge #1 | Add a momento to your project the way that Candace Perkins did here in her pocket page spread. Whether it is a ticket saved from a trip, or a drawing from a child, add it to your page and record that moment along with your story.
Challenge #2 | Rip, tear and texturize the paper on your project to add interest, the way that Melissa Mann did on this beautiful page! No special tools are needed—a pair of sharp scissors will do the trick to texturize a paper edge, and you can rip in a straight line easily by adding pressure with a ruler. If this isn’t your typical style, give it a try to up your texture game!
Challenge #3 | Go monochromatic, like Jess Forster did on her traveler’s notebook spread! Using the same hue in different tints and shades creates a bold and graphic project, and Jess’ purple monochromatic spread is amplified with a black and white photo here! We can’t wait to see what color you choose!
Challenge #4 | Use a digital printable or cut file element! Meghann Andrew used our Wander Printables here to create her layout background! We have several free digitals in the shop, and you can use your $5 off code above to get your digital supplies for this challenge!
Challenge #5 | Stamp all, or part of your title, as Mary-Ann Maldonado did here on this layout using our Large Jane Alphabet Stamps! Don’t have alphabet stamps? No problem! Use icons or illustrations to stamp in place of your words, like a heart stamp for the word “love!”
Complete each separate challenge, using at least one Elle’s Studio product (digitals included!) on your project for a chance to win one of five $50 gift certificates to our shop! We will be randomly selecting a winner from each challenge! If you complete all five challenges, you will also be entered to win a grand prize $100 gift certificate to the shop!
