January 29 - Combine Two Templates Hey, hey Scrappers! We're almost finished with MOC 8...can you believe it! I LOVE templates and am so excited to be hosting this challenge! Templates are the BEST and you've got to admit that we have some of the best templates in all of digiland here at The Lilypad. Our amazing template designers never disappoint and really encourage creative page layouts with their templates. Earlier this month we worked with a simple template with Heather and Elif, and a filled template with Judie and Cheryl. If you are new to using templates in digital scrapbooking or just need a refresher, here is a tutorial from Cheryl of Fiddle-Dee-Dee Designs to get you started. VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING TEMPLATES Building on what we've already done, today we are going to COMBINE TWO PROVIDED TEMPLATES TOGETHER! This is a unique way to stretch your template stash by getting two different template looks on one page. For this challenge you need to combine the two provided templates. One is by Sara Gleason & the other is from Designs by Soco. You must combine BOTH of the PROVIDED templates together on your 1-page layout. You can flip, rotate, resize and add/subtract photos and elements to make them yours, but we must still recognize your layout as originating from BOTH of the PROVIDED templates. Download your two provided MOC8 templates HERE This is the page I created when I combined these two templates together: As you can see I used the template designed by Soco with the tags as part of my background layers and replaced the photo in it with a pocket card. Then, I added the template by Sara on top and moved some layers from both templates up or down in the layers panel until I got a pleasing design. To recap the rules: Combine the TWO PROVIDED templates into a 1-PAGE layout. Add TLP product to your layout. The TWO PROVIDED templates must BOTH be easily recognizable in your layout Your page must be a new page in order to count for the Month of Challenges. Your page must be posted in three places: Uploaded to the TLP Gallery (not an outside hosting site). Posted in your page thread you created in the MOC Layouts Folder. You should have one post per completed challenge page. If you complete all 31 challenges, your thread should contain 31 posts. Please do not comment in the participants’ page threads so we can keep them clean. Posted in this thread. People can comment here if they wish. Pages should contain at least 75% current Lilypad product (currently for sale in the store from either permanent designers or guest designers). Have fun and keep scrappin! I can't wait to see all your pages!
