Today starts the first monthly scrapbook challenge we'll be adding to our StampTV challenge schedule! On the first Saturday of the month, one of the GinaK Design Team members will share a scrapbook page and invite you to participate. The challenge may be a sketch, a theme, an embellishment, etc.
Since we are adding a new scrapbook challenge on the first Saturday of the month, each current challenge lasts the whole month - giving plenty of time to participate when it's convenient for you! This challenge is different from our other challenges, as we won't be choosing a 'winner' from the entries. Instead, this is a fun opportunity to help us all get those special memories and events recorded in our scrapbooks for our family and friends!
Now that all the details have been shared, let's look again at photo of my scrapbook challenge for June:
Black & White with color all over
Challenge: make a scrapbook page using a black and white photo and use colors on everything else!
My scrapbook page was made using a black and white photo I took of my kids a few years back while we were at a Fourth of July parade in my husband's hometown. Ashley was so cute in her little cheerleader outfit - boy, they sure have grown since this was taken!
I like to get some of my photos developed in black and white - especially the ones that are great portrait photos of my kids. That way I can use them anyway I choose and don't feel like I have to use the bright colors in the photo as my guide.
I stamped Tami's Star images on a variety of GinaK solid cardstocks in coordinated Vivid inks and then used my Stampin Up large Star punch to punch them out. Such quick and easy embellishments! LOVE coordinating paper punches and stamps - that's actually how I started in this stamping hobby... by, using the stamped and punched images to decorate my scrapbook pages.
Cardstock: GinaK; October Afternoon
Ink: Vivid; Memento
Other: Chipboard album page by BoBunny; sewing machine; SU star punch; buttons; ribbons, sticker by October Afternoon; dauber; twine
Good luck - I can't wait to see the StampTV gallery fill with your beautiful scrapbook pages! I
