View Full Version : July 2010 Designer Challenge hosted by THREE designers!

06-30-2010, 11:12 PM
The July 2010 Designer Challenge is hosted this month by THREE designers!

Michelle McCoy {wolvsie35}, Tina Sudweeks {Manatee25} and Diana Carmichael {knzus}

Why THREE of us?

Because it's our Designer-versary! Yes, three years ago, in July 2007, all three of us became designers for Scrapbook MAX! And we want all of YOU to help us celebrate our three-year anniversary... by celebrating the country where you live with this month's challenge!

Here are your challenge requirements:

1. Download Michelle's, Tina's and Diana's freebies kits... we will each be posting them separately, so watch for them!
2. Use at least ONE item from EACH of our kits (that means 1 from Michelle, 1 from Tina and 1 from Diana), but of course use more if you want... and then...
3. Scrap a page about what you are PROUD of in the country where YOU live, OR, if you are in the USA, scrap a July 4th page!
5. Upload your pages to the Design Team Challenges gallery (http://www.scrapbookmax.com/gallery/g2809-design-team-challenges.html) AND THEN copy/paste the image link in this thread for all of us to enjoy! (That's the "linked image" code under your uploaded layout.)

My freebie kit is attached to this post. Michelle and Tina will be along shortly to upload theirs. Be sure to grab all three of our freebie kits as you will need ALL THREE for this challenge!

And just to keep you on your toes... better keep watch, because we may throw in a few changes here and there on the challenge! ;)

Have fun, everyone! Happy July! :D

Am always in awe of what our troops do for us. When I saw this photo, it was just more proof of what they do for us. Can't imagine living with all that sand in their mouths, clothes, hair and all around them.

Thank you American troops.

Daydreamer, we are just glad you've joined in and shown us YOUR country -- wow! Such beauty!

Everyone's layouts have been so AWESOME! We are really enjoying this challenge with you!

Now, for the next week on this challenge here's a new requirement... you must CHANGE THE COLOR/TINT on your PHOTOS to match one of the colors used in in your layout. To do this: right-click your photo, choose "properties", select the "advanced" tab, tic the box for "adjust color", UNtic both "relative" boxes, move your cursor over to your layout and use the color picker to choose a color/tint that you like. Try several different tints to see what you like and show us what you did! Also, go ahead and change colors of the layout freebies you use, you don't have to always do the red/white/blue idea... go get creative!

And remember, next week we start doing the mid-month designer "shift change" LOL... we are testing the idea of two weeks of challenges instead of a whole month (but you can still submit in any challenege of course!)... see Fiona's thread post (http://www.scrapbookmax.com/forums/threads/16980-Annoucement%21) about it!

07-07-2010, 03:02 PM
Diana, I just wanted to mention that after you put your picture in the layout, you can just double click it to get the box to change the color....<wink> *ducks to avoid the hand slap to the face* LOL....

Who is coming in next week, or is it a surprise? I love this new twist to the challenge...Might have to make a layout....Hmmmmm....

07-07-2010, 07:08 PM
Ok Diana, you tempted me to do this one right away. Changed everything to blue and white.

I'm so used to the right-click thingy that's all I do. LOL! Thanks for the shortcut tip, Michelle!

Who is coming in next week, or is it a surprise?....

Um, Fiona, like I said above... or maybe it wasn't clear... I have a lot going on, sorry LOL!

GREAT layout, makeyesup!! LOVE your re-coloring! Beautiful job! I admire the military folks, too...amazing what they put up with. I have photos my oldest stepson sent home of one of those orange sandstorms in Iraq! Awesome stuff.
