Flip Flop Friday Challenge #3

Today's challenge is a combination of small pics and lots of white space (blank area). You need to use wallet sized (or smaller) photos (no more than 3) and be sure to situate your design so that you have plenty of white space. Limit your embellishing to keep your page pretty simple.

On this layout I used 3 wallet sized photos near the bottom leaving the top fairly empty (white space).

Post your layout in the correct forum for 10 Pointz!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Flip-Flop Fridays Challenge #2

Another way to create a simple layout is to limit yourself to one color--a monochromatic color scheme. Create a layout using only 1 color (or varying shades of one color) for 15 pointz. Do one in all white and I'll give you 20!

Here are a couple of examples. My pink one cheats a little bit with the white touches but I'm sure y'all can do better! ;)

Be sure to post your layouts in the correct section of the MB.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Here she is... Our July GFOTM.... AnnMarie Trammell!!!

Here's what she told us about herself:
I'm 35, married to a firefighter, and mom to 1 son. I
work for a suburban school district as a curriculum
coordinator which means that I work to improve
instruction in the area of language arts. When I'm not
at work, most often you can find me at the baseball
field cheering on my son's team or at my desk creating
something (and making a mess in the process!)

Here's some of her fave projects:

Congratulations AnnMarie!! We'r so happy to have you hang out with us here at SF!!

Flip-Flop Fridays Challenge #1

I was trying to come up with something clever to tie flip-flops and scrapping together and since flip-flops are the least amount of shoes that you can wear, I decided to go with a "less is more" approach. On Fridays this month you will create super simple pages. Don't panic! Your pages are not going to have to look naked to be considered simple. Keeping it simple can still make a great impact and definitely be pleasing to the eye.

Today I would like for you to choose only 1 cardstock, 1 patterned paper, 1 title font, and 1 embellishment. (You may use any amount of photos, though I used only 1.)

By using only 1 embellishment, I kept the focus on my photo.

We would love to see your version of this challenge. Load your page in the "Flip-Flop Fridays Challenge #1" thread on the MB for 15 pointz.

Also if you would like to have a little fun this weekend, we are having a huge birthday crop at Simply Obsessed starting today. We would love to have you join in the fun! Hope to see you there!

An easy weekend project

Need something easy to do this weekend? Make up a few tags with your scraps. I recently made a layout with some Pink Paislee paper and I had a ton of scraps leftover. By adding a few embellishments, I was able to make 4 coordinating tags.

These make great "Just Because" & "Birthday" cards or use them as gift tags.

Have a wonderful weekend!
