In the upcoming Scrapbooking
Tips & Tricks: Tools & Techniques special issue from Creating Keepsakes, you'll find an
article called "The Best of Buttons and Brads," which brings you eight creative
ways to use buttons and brads. In this online article, you'll find a peek of a few looks you
can create, including trees and clouds.
Your creative challenge today is to make a layout or card accent
using buttons or brads to create some sort of scene based on the inspiration
you receive in this article. You don't have to create trees or clouds.
Just choose a shape that fits your set of photos. If you finish the entire
layout or card, that's fabulous--we'd love to see the completed project! But if
your button-and-brad scene is intricate and takes the full one-hour timeframe
to complete, just upload your page background or element with the creative
button/brad shape. You can use just buttons, just brads, or both to create your
Whatever way you choose to create your accent, you have
sixty minutes to do so! By participating, you even have the chance to win a goodie
bag of scrapbooking supplies!
At the end of the 60 minutes, photograph or scan your layout
or card, and upload the image to the Club CK gallery (learn how to upload your layout here). Then leave a comment below with the URL link to your
page by 11:15 a.m. MST today. For example, your comment could look like this:
"My page is posted here: http://clubcreatingkeepsakes.com/media/p/31086.aspx."
One winner will be randomly selected who participates in the live challenge.
If you couldn't join us for the live challenge, you can
still enter to win! A second prize will be awarded to one randomly selected
person who leaves the URL link to his or her page in the comments section below
by Monday, July 12, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. MST.
We can't wait to see what you create!
