Welcome to Weekly Challenge #6 - March 19 – 25, 2015 by melscrap.

I love the trend of cropping photos to geometric shapes such as triangles and hexagons.
So, this week’s challenge is to crop your photo into any shape except squares or rectangles.

I can’t say enough about this first layout!! The paper piecing is phenomenal!! I love the way that it draws attention to the photo along with the swirly frame. Love how the whole thing comes together!

Artrageous_blossoming by zanthia

Next up is a simple yet eye catching layout. The little bit of color really makes the layout pop!

Make a Wish by Violaine

This layout is great all the way around. I love how it tells the story of traditions being passed down through generations. I also enjoyed the blocked photos, journaling, and patterns!! Great layout!

The Story by chigirl

This next layout is amazing!! I love the photo treatment and all the little do dads placed among it. Very eye catching and just lovely all the way around!

Sweet Summer Butterfly by SonjaS

Last but definitely not least is a great layout with fun photo cropping and just great composition!! I can definitely relate to the subject matter as that is what my kids look like when the TV is on. I love the ‘frame’ that doesn’t quite frame the photo. Awesome Layout!!

Welcome to Weekly Challenge #4 Mar 12 – 18 by Ona

Hi everyone! For this challenge I thought it would be fun to scrap a page using song lyrics to inspire us. We all have a special, or more than one, song that we love, perhaps it reminds us of someone, or there is a message within it that inspires you or else the words really describe a person or situation. Whatever the reason, your challenge for this challenge is to simply scrap a page with some fave song lyrics! Easy!!!!

Now I need to mention that I had a ‘partner in crime’ in readying this challenge, my lovely soul sister Nana has made this gorgeous page for me!!

Layout by Linda.

Song Lyrics : My Wish by Rascal Flatts
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish. Yeah, yeah.

Layout by extase.

March 16 – 22 ~ Weekly Challenge #5 by jetjez.

Most people around here know I journal. I always tell the story behind the photos. Usually these are family activities or outings or just day to day life. But did you ever realise there are objects out there that have their own story. Because they mean something to you or because they came from somewhere special. If you don’t tell their story, then that will be lost in time. So my challenge to you is to show an object and tell its story.

Welcome to the March Typography Challenge, No. 43! by heathert.

Well! You guys all worked really, really hard last month to identify fonts that looked nice and retro. This month, easy challenge–make a layout where the title type expresses what kind of weather you’re dealing with! Are you winding down from summer and having some gray, rainy blah? Are you gearing up from winter and having some gray, rainy blah? Are you stuck in the polar vortex with no means of escape? Do you live in a desert and everything is dusty and dry? Whatever it is, let me see it!

As always, dafont.com is one of my favorite websites for fun and free fonts, in case you don’t have the perfect font in your drawer yet. I mean, on your hard drive.  (Note: purely type-created wordart can work here as well–see Dady’s example below!) You can do pretty much whatever you want as long as it’s weather-/season-related. Just make sure you explain your reasoning behind your typeface choice (describe what the weather or season makes you think of, then show how the typeface–as you’ve used it in your title–makes your point).

And of course the title must be–if not the focus of your page–at least the 2nd thing people want to look at!

Here are a few examples:

Dady used some fun wordart that reminds me of puddles splashing, or raindrops flying in her “Rain” layout:

I also picked Janedee’s page, “Roger’s Pass.” She talks about how snowy it is during the winter. When I think “winter,” I think of cold (and therefore thin, shriveled up); I think also of snow, and how it hides features of the environment. For these reasons, the font she chose (Undo, perhaps?) is perfect–it’s very thin and worn down, with parts missing, and altogether very cold-looking. Perfect for this wintry layout!

Finally, here is a page by Keley Lopes, called “Summer.” I think the typeface she picked is perfectly suited to the summer she’s showing in her layout: a bit light-hearted (see the swirl on the S), and very much a time of sun and waves–the “umm” letters in “summer” look like cute, bouncy waves, don’t they!

We’re having unseasonable warm and Spring-y weather out here on the West Coast, and flowers are popping out all over the place. Spring always makes me feel silly and fun, too–hence all the silly swirls and girlish loops! =) (I did separate the shadow and the type, and then transformed the type so it would look like it was sort of arching off the page. For fun, I guess!)

Welcome to the March Random Challenge by Scrapmemories

Dare to Dream – creating a digital vision board
Two months have passed since the year began. I know it sounds so cliché but it fits- “where does the time go?”. Two months and I still haven’t started that fitness routine I promised I would begin in the new year. Two months and I still haven’t uncluttered the corners of my house. Nothing motivates one more than putting your goals in print. Adding a visual element makes it more impactful.
This month we are going to create a motivational board also known as a vision board. Pick an area that you want to change in your life whether it be getting in shape, dreams that have been shelved or traveling to places you have always wanted to go to. Use anything that inspires a collage of words and pictures depicting your dreams and goals. Add quotes or power words for impact. Most of all have fun!!!

Rather than explaining what to do, I’d rather show you. Here is my first sample:

This week’s layouts have been chosen by: Dasha

Angelle Design’s Shop and Angelle Design’s Gallery

1. I liked this zanthia‘s page because of several things: first -I like the choice of the paper, second- I like the central cluster and third- I just can’t help my awwwww sound when I see pictures of dads with their little angels! I like everything in this page, it’s wonderful

2. Almost the same awwww sound))))) Naadi made this clean and simple page and it just popped up in the gallery, I like the use of clock and the placement of the text, but most of all I like the feeleing of tenderness which is shown here, gorgeous neat page!

3. This page by chocochoco grabbed my attention at once because the great use of the circles made me see all this composition as some kind of peacock’s feathers, can you see it this way too? Fabulous page, I think.

4. Oh my, these triangles! Who doesn’t love them?! Each time I see the page with them I ask myself “why I can’t make them look so wonderful at my layouts”???? I do love triangles and I think this page by Ga_L is amazing! Great photo , great use of colors and I like the placement of the text- it keeps the page clean. Wonderful design!

5. This page by anny-libelle has everything to be picked by me))) It has splashes and buttons- two things I adore. The whole composition is superb and just look at these shadows! Such a beautiful “selfie” page!

March 5 – 11 ~ Weekly Challenge #2 by Romy:

Hello everybody, I am presenting you a word prompt challenge today. The word that should inspire you is:

DIFFICULT

Go with whatever comes to your mind:
- a bit of journaling about everyday chores
- a photo describing a situation
- try a style that isn’t typical you

This of course doesn’t mean that the task should be hard!!  As you can see, I simply presented photos from my hike to the top of a famous granite formation in California…no torture, just fun!!

This week’s layouts have been chosen by: Romy

Romy’s Gallery and Romy’s Store

Hello, faithful Mscraps readers. This time, I almost started a revolt by asking to include not five, but 10 pages which I felt deserve to be here! lol Maybe some other time I will sneak a couple more in here. :-D

Here is a sample of the gems I found while perusing Mscraps gallery:

1) SonjaS‘s stunning page calls for more attention. It definitely makes me want to come closer and read the story. Very powerful.

2) Who hasn’t been there? The struggle, the pain, the want to get and live better.

Lorraine (Scrapmemories) makes the quest as if broken into separate tasks (always looks easier  ) and the colors of the layout make me want to get out of my chair and do something.

3) Beautifully relaxing and inviting page by Dady. Even though the colors are contrasting, they give a sense of perfect harmony – so is the horizontally dominant photo with the sun-like splatter on the top.

4) I won’t lie. I LOVE grid compositions and I LOVE the format sandsock is using. Add to it those fun, mischievous expressions of the kids and you get a perfect, eye-catching creation. :-)

5) Mimisgirl proves that even bold, patterned design can function as negative space and it can in fact steer the focus towards the much simpler photo. Just a perfect amount of elements to accent the picture.

March 2 – 8 ~ : Weekly Challenge #1 by aichaku

How’s the weather where you live? It’s very breezy in Singapore. I do love it when the weather gets cooler here. It’s nice to be outdoors. I saw a nice photo opportunity the other day when I was out walking. Look at the sky! I have not seen telephone lines in the sky in a long time, but a construction nearby probably meant these lines had to be put up temporarily.

This week I give you a photo challenge: Take a photo of the the outdoors. A layout using the photo is optional but do share that with us too, if you make one!

Here’s my photo:
