Happy New Year, everyone!

To start off this new decade, we're going to do something different for this first month! It's really simple and you have a lot of leeway in this challenge... ;)

We, the Scrapbook MAX! designers, challenge you to choose ANY or ALL of the following:

Scrap your New Year's resolution(s).
Scrap a new page from any previous challenge that was a favorite of yours.
Scrap a page telling us - the designers - what kind of challenges you would like to see in the future. {You know we are looking for lots of ideas for this one!}

Feel free to make as many layouts as your little hearts desire! Upload your layout(s) in this thread and in the Design Team Challenges gallery (http://www.scrapbookmax.com/gallery/showgallery.php/cat/2809). Be sure to credit!

If you make any items yourself for your layout(s), please consider sharing them in this thread.

And keep watch... a designer might offer some goodies here... and there... :D

Have fun!

I would to see color challenges either for layouts or if someone wants to make a mini kit to give away...I love doing these challenges. I am not very good at picking the right color coordinations and some of you are so good at it...So it would be great to these challenges. Thx!!

credits to Michelle McCoy. Gotta love your stuff. Any challenge is a good challenge, but a few really stood out last year and anything along similar lines would be magic. Showing people how to use sketches was a fantastic way to introduce a vast variety of different ways to arrange and present scrapping, the more I think about the last year, the better it gets.

I tried to make these resolutions simple, I hope I can fulfill them all. My embies and paper. including these and more here in smb file so you can enjoy them as well for personal use only, beware this is a large file so download is from 4shared, includes papers and embellies, all mine, around 130 items. Just a thanks to everyone for your inspiration and help, encouragement and support. this should download into sbm, have saved as sbm1, so can be used in both the old and new programs.

I am blushing....Thanks nanny and to everyone else....If it wasn't for all of you that participate, the challenges wouldn't be fun, and might not exist...So thank you!!!!! I have wrote down all the suggestions so far for challenge ideas, and maybe we will see some in the upcoming weeks...<wink> I have many weeks to plan for...LOL...so I am sure I can fit them in somewhere...:D

The New Year's Resolution pages are wonderful...:D

This is SO GREAT that you all jumped right into this!

AWESOME layouts and ideas! You have no idea how much we APPRECIATE your input!

{Even designers have "idea block" sometimes! ;) }

01-04-2010, 04:13 PM
Neat putting the pictures in your letters. Can you do that with any alphabet and photo just like the patterns with papers? :)

That was Fiona's January 2009 challenge... go to Fiona's first post in this thread (http://www.scrapbookmax.com/forums/showthread.php?13740-January-Designer-Challenge-%7E-hosted-by-Angelwithin) to get the freebies (attached at the end of that post) and learn how to do that. Look for "How to use photo shapes instructions:" :)

There are too many challenges to list but here are a few of my favourites. I like challenges that make us think "outside the box", instruct and share.

Hi and Happy New Year!

http://www.scrapbookmax.com/gallery/data/2809/Grace-Jean-000-Page-1.jpg (http://www.scrapbookmax.com/gallery/design-team-challenges/p37777-grace-jean.html)

I'm sorry I haven't been around but as you can see from my post, we've been rather busy with a new grandbaby! Here she is, Gracie Jean. We think she's beautiful, just like her big sister Scarlet.

I used two of my favourite challenges: the background from Carena's Sweetie challenge in November and the elements from Wolvsie's Stand By Me challenge in October. Thanks to both of you, your work is amazing.

Blessings - FS xx
