Hi everyone! How awesome was the first week of Summer School? I loved all that I learned about using brushes and blending modes...and how about those Lightroom Tutorials??? Amazing! This week, the subject is Journal Cards. There are two great tutorials in the forum about using journal cards this week. You can find them HERE and HERE. Plus, don't forget all journal cards are marked at 25% off this week only! The Challenge: This week's challenge is to use journal cards in unexpected ways. The two tutorials do a great job giving you ideas on how to utilize journal cards beyond the pocket page. I do this A LOT in my own scrapping. So for your layout you have to use at least 1 journal card in an unexpected way. Maybe it's the main focus instead of a photo, or you extract an element of the card, or you use it in place of papers. You must use at least 1 journal card in an unexpected way. Here is my layout for the challenge: In my layout, I took one of the journal cards from Jaimee's July Storyteller kit and enlarged it to use it as the background and the title of the page. It's funny how a small 3x4 card can be used to make such a huge impact! Please remember The Lilypad challenges rules also apply here!: Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Once you finished your page, come back here to this thread to leave us a link to your page: you will find the right link to copy on the right hand side of your page in the gallery, under your avatar, you will see Share this Layout. The right link is the one that says : Share BB Code: the third one down. You have until Sunday, 17th of July at 11:59 EST to post your page in the gallery and post a link here, from those of you who do so, we will select a winner who will get a wonderful $5 for the store!!!!!
