One-Hour Challenge: Photo Border Layout

Hello, it's Wendy Smedley from Big Picture Classes. One-hour challenges are a fun way to get your projects complete, and we've got a fun challenge for you today. Thanks for letting us share with you!



Challenge: Make a photo border layout

Fill your layout with photos--on the edge. You can use big or small sized photos; just start adding them to your page. Place your title and journaling smack dab in the middle of your layout, add a pop of color with your accents, and move on to the next project. It's easy as cake!  Download a PDF of the sketch below

--Wendy Smedley, Big Picture Classes

 


You have two ways to win!

If you'd like to participate in the live challenge, you have one hour to create a project. At the end of that time, photograph or scan your project and upload the image to the Club CK gallery (learn how to upload your project here). Then leave a comment below with the URL link to your page by 11:15 a.m. MST today (Feb. 22). For example, your comment could look like this: "Thanks for the fantastic challenge! My page is posted here: http://clubcreatingkeepsakes.com/media/p/31086.aspx."

If you weren't able to complete your project during the live challenge, or you'd like to spend more time working on it, you have until 9:00 a.m. MST Monday, February 27, 2012, to complete the "long challenge".  Follow the above instructions for posting your project and commenting. One winner will be chosen from each group and will receive a complimentary workshop taught by Lisa Day from  Big Picture Classes, 28 Days of Sketches. In this fun workshop, Lisa will provide you with 28 daily sketches accompanied by exclusive layouts, colorful instructions and useful tips to help you create beautiful pages quickly. 

 

A big shout-out to the winner of the first part of our one-hour challenge, mfortunato! And the winner of our "long version" of this challenge is--drum roll, please--Beth! To claim your prize, watch for a conversation on your Club CK profile.

Well, Wendy, you gave us quite a challenge today! Man, I was running around like crazy, finding my pics, cropping to size and then all the other. Mine is not totally done as I need to add some embellishments and the journaling.

Oh, I'm so excited that I won! I had printed these photos just after Christmas but wasn't sure how I wanted to use them. This was the perfect challenge! I'm sure I'll enjoy the big picture class - Thanks!!

Loved this idea.  I have several events we've gone to with lots of pix.  I wanted to scrap them all but wasn't sure how to limit it to 2 pages.  This worked beautifully!  jensunchartedterritory.blogspot.com/.../festival-of-lights.html

OK, I got this done, had a lot of fun doing it and liked how it turned out.  I have no idea how to create a link to it, so I'm hoping it will do it by itself.  :-)

OK, it didn't--try this.

Well, good thing I figured out how to get that link posted--LOL.  Thank you so much.  I think it's great that you have a 'long challenge' for those of us not around for the 1-hour version.
