August 7-13; Weekly Challenge #2 brought to you by Scrapmemories.
Chillin’ and Grillin’ Recipe Cards
The last weekly challenge I hosted was a recipe challenge and it was quite popular. It was recommended that I do another. If you missed it the last time here is your chance to join in on the fun.
Since it is the peak of summer, especially here in south Florida with temperatures soaring, let’s share recipes that involve foods geared for barbecues and picnics. Just the thought of turning on the oven makes me sweat LOL. The recipe cards can be for foods that you grill or chill (salads, cold soups, desserts, etc).
Here is a recipe card I made with a ready-made 4×6 template: Watermelon Salad

Welcome to the August Artsy Challenge by MissK
Hello Cecilia aka MissK here with the new monthly Artsy Challenge.
I don’t know about you but I love an artsy/art journaling page. I love playing with blending, mists, overlays and stamps.
There is no wrong way: have fun, create and surprise yourself
This month I want you to use an inspiring word art to show who you are, what you like, who inspires you etc.
You can make one yourself or use one by our awesome talented designers.
Also this month’s page should be photo-less! However you can use whatever you like to make your page work.
So slap some brushwork on your page, use mists, blend papers together. The key this month is to have fun, think outside the box but also to let us know you a little better.
E.g I used a winter kit from Ninigoesdigi to show that everything is game for creating an artsy page. I feel happy and blessed so my page is bright and happy but If you are feeling sad or angry. Why not get it of your chest and scrap about it.

Welcome to the August Typography Challenge by heathert
This month we’re going to be playing with an art design principle that applies to typography as well: SCALE. You’re already familiar with examples of scale in typography from newspapers and web pages: headlines, bylines, and body text are all examples of variation in scale.
The concept of scale simply said is that changes in size will draw the attention. A large typeface will “shout”; a small typeface will “whisper.” Now obviously, if you’re in a huge crowd of sports fans, shouting won’t get you anywhere, because everybody is shouting. So you have to choose which aspects you are going to shout out. And sometimes, whispering will be equally attention-getting: everybody will lean closer so as to hear the secret! But you also have to be careful that the surrounding noise doesn’t just drown out the whisper–it’s best to contrast a whisper with silence (i.e., small fonts work really well in clean, minimalist layouts; a large font might be too overwhelming there.)
So, your task is to explore, typographically, some aspect of SCALE in your layout. Remember that scale can only be shown by contrast, but that the background you’re contrasting is really important in order to establish a baseline.
Stephen Doyle built this installation in the Grand Central train station in NYC in 1995, to draw attention to the 19th amendment. It’s easy to see why he chose the words he did to be in all caps:
