Welcome to another year of scrapbook challenges! I’ve made some changes to the format of the challenge to simplify things, to give you more room in order to explore different ways when you come up with your page design and to allow more scrapbook styles/formats to be represented in the challenge.
Throughout the year I’ll pick a word for each month and you get to use, interpret that word on your page without the layout style limit. Scroll down to get this month’s word & start scrapping your page.
But before that here’s the part you’ve been waiting for the entire year! I picked two guest team members from last years participants who were completing at least nine challenges. Congrats to JenEm and Linda de Jongh! I’ll be in touch with you for the details.
As usual scroll down to find out the winners of December 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Need some new goodies for your page? I’ve discounted a few products for you. Shop select products 50% off throughout January here at my store. You can use your December participant discount code on these items as well.
Let’s start scrapping!
Word of the month
Use the word messy to guide you on picking/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 messy. For example; mess, complicated, troublesome, frustrating, melodramatic, bizarre, chaotic, confused, untidy, awkward, clutter 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 January 31st, 2021 23:59 CST.
The winners of January 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.
One random page among participants will win $10 gift certificate to Sahin Designs store and the layout will be shared on Sahin Designs blog and social media channels.
Sahin Designs Creative Team will choose a layout among participants to receive $5 gift certificate to Sahin Designs store and the layout will be shared on Sahin Designs blog and social media channels.
All participants will get 10% off coupon code (valid to be used within the month) to the Sahin Designs store. Codes will be provided via email next month when the new challenge is posted.
At the end of 2021, two lucky participants who completed at least 9 challenges out of 12 will win a guest spot in the creative team for a month in 2022.
*Monthly prize winners will be announced on the first Tuesday of next month.
It’s time to scrap!
It’s time to move your mouse (or scissors) and make that page! Once you’re done, come back here to share your layout, see how others used the word of the month, and share your feedback & love with all the participants.
To get email notification when the new challenge’s posted, and when the winners announced, I highly recommend you to subscribe to my email list.
As always, keep documenting because life’s worth recording.
