    Hi Everyone,

    It’s April and that means time for some new challenges! This month I’m hosting the Inspiration challenge, and we’re going to get all wordy!

    The one thing I love about scrapbook kits and stamps sets are the key words used to really flesh out the sentiment behind the collection. A key word is actually a word chip or small quote generally on a paper strip. They have been carefully curated and using several can help to support your story too and hey the added bonus is they look good!

    Often we tend to only gravitate to using one or two in our pages, so in this challenge let’s use a minimum of 5 in our project. They can be mixed and matched from many kits all you have to do is carefully select the ones that best tell your story.

    Here is a PINTEREST ALBUM filled with plenty of great artistic examples to really inspire you with achieving this look. You can see how the word chips and word accents have really worked in with the photo or theme of the page.

    CHALLENGE CRITERIA:
    • Select 5 or more word chips, short quotes or phrases to use as accents in your page.
    Here’s my page, you can see I have a selection from the kit I used and I also typed some of my own.

    As always, please remember the monthly challenge rules: Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Gallery and then linked to the APRIL Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked, and to this thread.

    The Lilypad uses a percent system for our challenges; the number of challenges you participate in determines the store discount you will receive at the end of the month:

    2 challenges = 10% off
    4 challenges = 20% off
    6 challenges = 30% off

    If you complete 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate from the Lilypad! The first seven challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the eighth challenge is the BYOC challenge, which is posted on BYOC release day. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges).

    I can't wait to see your WORDY ACCENTS!
    Have fun Em x

    Umm, @Justagirl I have 4 WA pieces or labels with text and 1 journaling card and printed washi tape....but those don't count? If not, I'll make a new one. I've got some time on my hands :P

    Thanks for the challenge, Em. I scrapped the ducklings that we've been watching grow up.

    This was great idea, I am a newbie and I have really not used wordchips in abundance on one layout, so this was a great way to try something new.
