Welcome to March blog challenge! Thank you so much for your participation and beautiful layouts you’ve created last month! The winners of February challenge are announced at the bottom of this post.

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

Let’s get this party started with March recipe!

The recipe

  • Large photo
  • Lots of circles (at least five)
  • Rose(s) (or some sort of flower/floral)
  • Star(s)
  • Five different patterned papers

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 March 31st, 2020 23:59 CST

The winners of March challenge will be announced on April 7th, 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.

    Sounds awesome! One question though: is it allowed to use a template (by another designer) or not? Thanks for responding, Elif!
