By the title I guess you can see that I focused my scrapping today on doing all the challenges at Oscraps! Besides the copycat layout, all the other pages were made today since I’m waiting for my internet to really cooperate so I can upload some photo sessions for clients.
So! Here we go on the challenges! (Alphabetically!)
First up is Selena’s Camera Corner Challenge. We were to photograph something we love, & since I was watching my cousins this weekend I used one of them. Here is Savanna & my love of laughter:
Next we are embracing Color with Linda where she gave us a delicious drink inspiration image. Just feels like spring! Or Love. So I made this:
Then my challenge, so I had this layout completed before February. I chose, at the suggestion of another Cheery-O, to go with a larger photo for the Copycat Challenge so I lifted gavinsmum on this one. Here’s my page:
Now we move on to one of my favorite challenges, & one that rotates, the O-Stash Recipe Challenge with Laurie. There is a list of 10 items, 1 of which is mandatory & then we can pick any 6 or more of the others to include on our page. My page ended up looking like this:
And finally we get to another one of my favorites just because of the sheer variety of pages it produces & that’s Chris’ Web Inspiration Challenge. Plus, since I got to scrap a picture of my mom & I hardly have any of that, that made this challenge a favorite this time around! So here’s my mom:
Well! I think that’s all my scrapping adventures for today! I’m hoping tomorrow I can pull out some older not used yet kits & start scrapping from there!
Finally getting to play with more of Tiffany’s class templates from December. Part of my issue this year on being behind with these has been a lack of NEWWINTER pictures. This winter hasn’t been “wintery” really yet. And I like NEW photos, lol! So I’m scrapping some more oldies but scrapping! The last page features photos from this past weekend & you can see how sunny & warm it was. Definitely not a typical February! :D
Like always in my class posts the layouts side-by-side represent ones that started with the same base template designed by Tiffany Tillman.
I’m going to keep my comments to a minimum tonight, & just say a few of these page I made & posted to galleries last month, but the last four here are ones I made tonight as part of my February scrapping goal, (didn’t get scrapping done this weekend since I was babysitting, so making up for it tonight! hehe!).
Happy Scrapping!! Happy Monday!!
Finally blogging Week 3&4 of January! (My week 8 & 9 aka Two Months DONE!!!!)
A couple minor annoyances initially put these weeks behind, printing woes & a little injury with a paper cutter, but then it was Week 3 that just BORED me & made me slack on it. Week 4 was a dream.
Here’s a look at week 3 with & without my little insert a la Pinterest.
I’m hoping that when I use the 6×6 design protector one week that it won’t be as hard as this one to fill the backside. Maybe it was harder because it was just a boring week overall, or I felt that way. This is also why I added a quote that I saw in another’s Project Lifer’s book by Andy Warhol that said, “You should let things that ordinarily bore you suddenly thrill you”. I need to embrace that idea more & cut myself some slack. It’s my life. I’m alive.
Here are a couple close-ups too (as I was photographing I realized I forgot to write on one of the cards, so that’s fixed now) of the week of Jan 16th-22nd:
Like I already said, Week 4 aka 9 was a DREAM! When I was editing photos I had already made 3 of them black&white, so I figured I’d try a whole week that way to see how I like it. LOVE. And the week went together so much faster too. I know I can’t/won’t do every week this way simply because the beginning of my book isn’t & I want some sort of flow, but I do know I’ll throw these in sporadically!
Here’s a look at Jan 23rd-Jan 29th!
I already know I’ll be a tad late showing the next week since I’m sending out my photos to be printed today. I have a 6×12 in there, so I can’t just do Walmart. But I already know I love the photos so it should come together a little quicker this time around.
I did manage to keep up with our little Facebook “support group”‘s challenges of Week 3 a quote (Dad to Gayle text) & Week 4 photographing an inanimate object we love (Cameras!).
I had a couple questions on my last project life post.
The first was about the “Hello Today” photo. That one is a layout I made. The font for the title words & words I emphasized was The Quickest Shift.
The second question was about doing screenshots. I think each keyboard is a little different, but on mine specifically there is a key that has “prt sc” or “print screen” near the f12 key. I just hit that key & it copies the whole screen. Some keyboards you’ll do alt-prt scr to copy it. Here is a little tutorial I found on doing screenshots & using Photoshop. Maybe that’ll help? I use a PC.
Anyway! Still loving the project even with a discouraging week in there. Hoping I don’t have too many of those or at least enough fun ones that I can appreciate the slow times.
Just a quick one today. Forgot about my cousins’ first basketball game tonight so that threw my schedule off a little. Still wanted to get at least 1 layout made today, so I just got home & opened Photoshop & here it is!
Made with Curated 2 Quickpages by Paislee Press & Generations by Paislee Press, One Little Bird, & Traci Murphy. Both found at Oscraps.
Hopefully back on track tomorrow! :D
(Oh, & the 5th graders won their game, but my cousins’ 6th grade team lost. by a lot. boo!)
