Scrapbook challenge | August 2020

Welcome to August challenge. I’m glad to have you here! This month I want us to have another colorful scrapbook layout and make some fun, bold color combinations.

As usual scroll down to find the winners of July challenge at the bottom of this post.

If you haven’t add my address to your contact list, please do so to avoid having my emails in your spam folder. It’s elif@sahindesigns.com

Need some new goodies for your page? I’ve discounted a few products for you. Shop select products 50% off throughout August here at my store. You can use your July participant discount code on these items as well.

Ready? Let’s scrap!

The recipe

  • Combine two bold colors (red & blue in my case)
  • White background paper
  • Stripes
  • An animal illustration (or a photo of an animal)
  • A geometric shape repeated across your page

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 August 31st, 2020 23:59 CST

The winners of August challenge will be announced on September 1st, 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.
