Scrapbook challenge | October 2020

Welcome to October challenge! We’ll use less colors this month and make our photos pop in the page. Can’t wait to see how you’ll interpret this one!

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

Let’s start scrapping!

The recipe

  • Use a template (this could be a photo template or a full layout template)
  • Use four colors in your page at most (aside from the colors in your photos)
  • A map
  • A list
  • Something cork or wood

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 October 31st, 2020 23:59 CST.

The winners of October challenge will be announced on November 3rd, 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.

    Here’s my take on the challenge, this was fun! Ironically, having to follow rules is a total creativity boost and helped kick me back into scrapbooking after a dry spell! https://www.instagram.com/p/CGsp1CeAWox/
