Scrapbook challenge | April 2020

Welcome to April blog challenge! Last month we played with circles and lots of patterned paper and it was a fun but a daring challenge. So to loose things a little, this month we will be making a simpler and minimal layout. And team member Audrey Medd will bring you an inspirational layout for this one! The winners of March challenge are announced at the bottom of this post.

If you need some new goodies for your page, I’ve discounted a few products for you to grab. Shop select products 20% off throughout April here on my store. You can use your March participant discount code on these items as well!

Let’s get on with April recipe!

The recipe

  • Black photo frame(s)
  • A handlettered or script word art as title
  • Stripes of paper
  • Block of journaling
  • Stamp on the background paper

How to participate

Make your layout using the recipe above. You must use all the items in the recipe and you’re allowed to use additional items out of the the recipe list if you want.

Your layout can be digital, hybrid or pocket page but it must be made using 75% current Sahin Designs products that are offered in the store at the Lilypad or at www.sahindesigns.com/shop.

Once you’ve made your page, post it to your favorite gallery, image sharing website or social media and give me a link below in the comments section. Post your layout link below in comments before April 30th, 2020 23:59 CST

The winners of April challenge will be announced on May 5th, here on the blog when the new challenge recipe is announced.

If your gallery or social media account is private, and I can’t see your layout, unfortunately you won’t be eligible to win a prize.
