Scrapbook challenge | February 2021

Welcome to February challenge! If you’re new here, here’s how we do this challenge;

Each month I’ll pick a word and you get to use, interpret that word on your page without the layout style limit. Your layout can be as simple or as embellished as you want. You can utilize any software or app to create your digital page or use hybrid methods to craft by hand. Scroll down to get this month’s word & start scrapping your page.

As usual scroll down to find out the winners of January 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 February here at my store. You can use your January participant discount code on these items as well.

Let’s get creative!

Word of the month

Use the word heart to guide you on selecting/taking your photo, writing your journaling or use the actual word somewhere on your page as a title, word art, or on an embellishment.

Related words can be used instead of “heart”. For example; affection, adore, center, compassion, essence, favorite, fondness, kindness, like, love etc.

When you share your layout in the galleries/social media, write the word you used for your layout in the description part.

How to participate

Make your layout using the word above. You can interpret the word, use related words to complete your layout. You may use the word to take your photo, write your journaling or actually use it somewhere on your page as a title, a word art or embellishment.

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 February 28th, 2021 23:59 CST.

The winners of February challenge will be announced here on the blog when the new challenge recipe is announced next month.

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.

    I used the word “heart” for my inspiration. It’s at the end of my journaling and there’s a heart flair and a heart on a word strip.
