I’m The Featured Designer At Just Art Scrapbooking

Just Art Scrapbooking is a unique little spot on the web for scrapbookers and digital crafters.  If you enjoy doing challenges and hanging out with like-minded creatives then you’ll love Just Art. Whether you started your digital scrapbooking journey years ago or you’re just dipping your toe in the water, it’s a fun place to hang out.  There’s no store.  Just Art is more about hanging out without all of the noise of ads and sales you find in most forums.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE a great sale but I CHERISH the uninterrupted time to sit down and hang out with fellow artists and genealogists even if it’s a virtual experience.

I’m excited to be the Featured Designer at Just Art this month and I’ve got some sweet freebies waiting in the Featured Designer Challenge thread..  We’re having fun this month working with products from the Come Sail Away Collection.  I hope you’ll join us.

April Color Challenge at The Studio Features Exuberant Spring

Get The Exuberant Spring Mini

FREE in the April Color Challenge at The Studio.

April showers bring May flowers. A childhood saying to learn about the patterns of the season AND it has been raining here for a week! I expect to see lots of flowers in April as well as May and I am delighted looking forward to their joyful and exuberant show.

My youngest child, son Matthew, was born in April and his birthday and Easter have become synonymous in our household. His birthday parties frequently included Easter Egg hunts! This year he turns 31, two days after Easter … where did time go?

I love this palette and the full collection it comes from. Exuberant Spring is my homage to the joyfulness of springtime and Easter.

I was having a “dreamy” kind of day when I began working on the “Dreams” collection. I LOVE the palette of greens and grays and decided to use it for my color challenge too. A palette of only two shades can be tough to work with, but I found this one to be effortless. Well “effortless” might be the wrong word since it did take me over a week to complete the collection. (laughing)

If you are new to the color challenge at Digital Scrapbooking Studio (aka theStudio), let me provide a quick summary of how it works:

I share the palette and I provide a mini for free from the “downloads” area of the forum.

You create a layout, with my mini or ANY kit that matches the palette, and post it to the challenge thread.

Instead of a layout or in additon to a layout, you may create a matching mini, papers, and extras from the palette to share. (Make sure you are using “freebie ok” CU products.)

Feb Color Challenge at DSS (and an improved process) AND includes my DYL Series too

Feb Color Challenge at DSS (and an improved process) AND includes my DYL Series too

I have found a way to coordinate my DSS Color Challenge and my Documenting Your Life Series in a simple manner. (Simple…always good LOL)
I will provide my mini to participants of both challenges. If you want to use the mini to do a DYL layout, great, but not required.

Starting this month, if you participated at DSS in either challenge in January, you will receive a PM with your coupon to “buy” the Feb. mini from my store.
Going forward, participants of either challenge will receive a coupon via PM to “buy” the following months mini. (participate in one or the other, not required to do both, though I would love to see you do so)

Feb palette is called SOFTLY

The Color Challenge works like this:  LINK TO DSS CHALLENGE FORUM (look for the current month & then for the Color Challenge thread)
** CREATE A LAYOUT or a QP, Stacked Paper or Cluster — use the mini kit I created or any kit in the chosen palette
be sure if you are creating with someone else’s kit that they allow for freebies if you do a QP, Stacked Paper or Cluster
** CREATE A MINI KIT from the palette to share with us (please put the download link in your gallery post, not here in the thread)
** post your layout and/or kit preview it in the Color Challenge Gallery

The Documenting Your Life Challenge works like this: LINK TO DSS CHALLENGE FORUM (look for the current month, then look at the top of page for DYL Series)
**Create a layout based on any of the questions/prompts.
**You may use the mini earned the prior month or ANY kit you like. Please credit the designer in the comments.
