View Full Version : August Challenge!

08-01-2007, 09:02 AM
I am already ready for fall! I am stuck on these 2 colors and thought they would make a great August Challenge Color Scheme.

Your challenge is to use these 2 colors or variations of them to come up with fall themed papers and embellishments.

I will add a mini kit as soon as I upload it to get you all started but for those of you who do some designing, please feel free to get started!

Also - Let's let our element challenge this month be: WORD ART!

So... Recap...

1. If you design, take the color swatches and design papers and embellishments with a fall theme. Post those papers and embellishments here for others to use.

2. If you're not a designer and use SBM only, wait a day or two and you'll start seeing embellishments and papers. Save them to your computer or drag them into SBM and make a layout with them!

3. Everyone - Post your layouts to the gallery and then please consider also exporting them as SBM templates and then sharing them in this forum.

4. Try your hand at Word Art! You don't have to have another program to do that - You can even make Word Art using SBM by using a paperscrap from the color scheme as a "mat" and then placing your phrase on top of it. Use various fonts and font sizes to create your word art.

08-01-2007, 01:51 PM
Thanks Julie and Mary, now I have to put my thinking cap on for this one. With the heat, still pondering on summer.

08-01-2007, 02:42 PM
Another just before I head off to bed.........

08-01-2007, 03:27 PM
I love these colors, thanks ladies. can't wait to start on this one.

08-01-2007, 04:20 PM
Couple more papers.

Each contains only a small element of the required color.

Since I have minimal color sense, I leaned on the following site for colors that harmonize with the original colors: http://www.easyrgb.com/index.html

Click on the "Color Harmonies" option. A great resource site.

08-01-2007, 04:31 PM
Well here is my hand at trying to create. I also have a color block paper, but I can't get it uploaded yet. Will have to play.

You got me wanting to run all over the place... I will probably end up playing on the freeway and getting run over by a tricycle! :eek:

08-06-2007, 08:25 PM
Sure looks like a piece of leather fabric to me. Don't know how I would use it, but it was an accidental creation while working on the August colors.

08-06-2007, 08:41 PM
Awesome, I love it! Thanks Grannywin.

08-06-2007, 08:42 PM

Thanks to all, very creative ladies ( girls!!).

08-07-2007, 08:05 PM
WOW These are so AWESOME... you peeps are Pretty Darn Good at this!! Thanks to everyone!!!
Hey Marion... its nice to see ya back on the boards again!!!
Sue... What's a layout???? LOL

08-07-2007, 08:35 PM
WOW These are so AWESOME... you peeps are Pretty Darn Good at this!! Thanks to everyone!!!
Hey Marion... its nice to see ya back on the boards again!!!
Sue... What's a layout???? LOL

Croppy, I been too busy making things for this thread that I forgot what a layout was...LOL Just kidding, but I have been busy.

Took my mother to an appointment today and shopping. And we are getting a new roof. The roofing was delivered today. I was watching them unload the truck with that big boom. That kid sure knew how to work that thing. I have also been replacing some brick in my back yard. That part is almost done, but we have to get some decking yet, to finish up that project. That will be on hold while they are doing the roof. (2 story house with 3 roof's...We have a dumpster sitting in front of our house for the tear off.) I am sure the neighbors love that. They also are going to change the roof style over our back porch. Right now it is flat with rubber on it. (was an airing deck). We are changing it to a shed style roof, so the rain will drain off better. We have other projects too. Too many at one time. That's why I have a hard time keeping up with the chores while I continue to Download, download.....oops, back to DDA.

08-07-2007, 08:47 PM
Carol, I have been around, but there just is not enough time in the day lately to post in every thread, so I just pop in here and there.

Sue, if I remember right, a layout is the thingy where you put all this cool stuff together with some pictures in it.
I will try and get a layout done for this challenge real soon. (I guess that is why they call it a challenge!):D

08-07-2007, 09:22 PM
WOW sacannon, you have been busy....
Oh but thats no excuse...lol...just kidding...<wink>
Here are some more freebies I made for everyone...Creating stuff is keeping me from downloading...lol...Yeah right, then I need to stay away from this thread...hehehehehe :D
God Bless...

08-07-2007, 09:32 PM
oooh Wolvsie these are great... I can't be positive, but that last leaf looks suspicious.

08-07-2007, 09:32 PM
Here is one more freebie...fall word art and three templates I made...SBM file to download and pictures are removed.<wink>

08-08-2007, 02:38 PM
Awesome LO Marion...EYE will be so pleased...:D

08-08-2007, 10:37 PM
I finally got a couple done! This is my great niece Kari at a lake in Minnesota a few years back.

I used Crops paper for the background. The leaves and the frame are mine. ( I used PSE and Real Draw to make the leaves).


Hurray it wasn't too big for the template!

08-08-2007, 10:40 PM
I meant to just put a link in to the gallery, but got the picture instead. oops.

08-08-2007, 11:02 PM
Here is another one. This is me on the bridge, although it is too far to make it out.

The Dragon Flies, Dragon Fly Brads and the word "Fall" with the leaves is from Wolvsie, the Ribbon and Bows are from Lila, and the Paper and Frame are mine.

08-09-2007, 10:54 AM
Here is another layout. I made the pic B & W to blend better with the layout.

Wolvsie made the Ribbon and Dragon Fly. I adjusted color a bit for the layout. I also took the ribbon and curved it a little and ajdusted colors again for under my bow. Hope you don't mind Wolvsie, since it was for the challenge. The frame is from Mary (MH51), The leaves are mine

08-09-2007, 10:59 AM
Here are the frames and leaves from my layouts.

08-09-2007, 11:06 AM
More items. (I put wolvsie's name on the ribbons because it was hers that I adjusted).

08-09-2007, 11:12 AM
Very pretty sacannon...and no, I don't mind...<wink> great LO!!!:D

08-09-2007, 11:35 AM
Wow Sue! You have been busy and it is all so beautiful!


08-09-2007, 03:22 PM
Made with all of Eye's goodies but tweeked to be in our August challenge colors.

Thanks Eye!

Your layout is awesome. This is so wonderful ----my gift into your gift into my gift-----have I lost yah yet. Thank you. I never went in here but wow. Love the color. Thank you Marion xo xo from my heart.:)

08-10-2007, 09:04 PM
Wow Sue!! These are all awesome. You have truly been busy. Great stuff.

08-11-2007, 10:09 AM
Thanks all for this great stuff. Everything is fantastic. Still trying to find time to make a layout or some donations. It's taking me hours to catch up with the last 3 days on this site. I guess the behinder I get, the behinder I am.

08-11-2007, 11:31 AM
Well here is my first page. I just love these colors.

I used:
Papers from Julie.
Frames & flower embies from Mh51
Fall flower word art & polka dot paper from Wolvsie
Scallop from Spanielmom
August poem from Marion
Leaves & Autumn Dreams wordart from Sacannon
Whew! I think I got everyone, please forgive me if I left anyone out...

08-11-2007, 11:53 AM
Very pretty blue!!!!!

08-11-2007, 12:51 PM
I finally did my page for the challenge. Hope that everyone likes. It was so cute watching them learn to play and memorize the songs. They learned them in only 2 days-and when they played them for their mom they couldn't have been more proud of themselves-and we were so proud of them too.

I tried to upload the template but it's too big and I can't seem to figure out how to make it smaller. When exporting I removed photos and optimized embellishments, but still too big. Sorry.:(

08-11-2007, 12:53 PM
Very nice bluevelvet!!

08-11-2007, 01:39 PM
Here is another LO I did. I used a kit called "KidCouture" created by Lori Barnhurst at LittledreamerDesigns. The Leaves and wordart "My favorite season" are from sacannon, the wordart embie Fall is from Wolvsie, the font used is Fine Hand. Thank you guys, uh ladies, for your generous freebies. :) If it wasn't for all your talent and generosity I wouldn't have anything to scrap with!!

08-11-2007, 01:41 PM
Awesome job pk.....Thanks for the credits...How sweet of you...:D

08-11-2007, 01:47 PM

I am NEW here and just checking things out. I am doing this by trial and error. I have saved all of the embellishments and papers to a file on my puter. I then dragged and dropped them into SBM and am starting to play around with it. Is there a way to import them into my SBM for saving purposes?

08-11-2007, 09:09 PM
Here's another one. Again I used the kit made by Lori Barnhurst at LittleDreamerDesigns, and I used the leaves by sacannon. Thank you Sue. Some more photos from our Branson trip.

08-11-2007, 09:23 PM
Here are some more brown and mixed color papers.

08-11-2007, 09:23 PM
You are welcome doll, glad you could use them.

08-11-2007, 09:33 PM
Here are more teal papers.

08-11-2007, 09:46 PM
Wow Sue-you sure stay busy. Thank you for sharing!!

08-11-2007, 10:29 PM
Well, My hubby is on vacation this coming week. I may not be on as much so I am trying to get stuff done now.

08-11-2007, 10:34 PM
ok last 2 and I am going to bed. This is the same paper with and without the word "Fall". I used the font "Labrit" with a metal style then altered the coloring.

You can add your own lettering, do dads or pics to the other ones, or leave them as is.

OMG- I started my challenge "freebie" when there were only 6 pages on this thread! LOL- Good grief you guys are FAST- and Um Croppy- you and I have the same word art! ROTFLMAO!! :D
What do they say about great minds? hahahahaha.
Well it's slightly different so hoping you all will find a use for it. Files were tooo big for uploading here so leaving it at 4 shared for you.
Just click on the link- wait a few minutes and click download ( for those that have never done it;) )

Here is my page and another freeby. I used Sacs leaves for the page. And thank you all for your wonderful embies!

08-12-2007, 12:25 PM

Almost didn't get this one posted. I spent so much time gathering the wonderful papers that were posted recently. This was a midnight inspiration! Isn't that when everyone gets the best ideas? I attached a zip file with most of the embies and paper used in the LO. I just discovered how to use Sue Chastain's style buttons for PS 6.0 and went crazy with them. If you "google" her name, you should be able to find the styles she offers for free. Everything is my creation except for the bows that I borrowed from MA3. Thanks, I just adapted the color.

I finally had enough time to sit down and play a little bit. The colours were very different for me and having only 2 made this quite a challenge, but I finally came up with something :)

Hope you like these papers and I'm gonna try playing some more.

Dang it, file is too big :( ... be back in a few to upload link

08-13-2007, 11:11 AM
Ok here is the file :)

08-13-2007, 03:15 PM
Absolutely Gorgeous Grannywin!, Muma...Thanks so much these are very pretty.

08-13-2007, 04:38 PM
Thank you ladies! This stuff is wonderful. :eek:

08-13-2007, 09:20 PM
Here's another page. Cousins always falling into each other. They all wanted to sit in recliner so instead of trying to decide who they decided they all would!! They crack me up. This was made with all freebies from the challenge. Thank you Wolvsie and Sue!

08-13-2007, 09:28 PM
Really pretty.....:D

08-14-2007, 06:15 AM
Great job Doll!

08-14-2007, 09:25 AM
ok, so my only excuse is I am a Newb!

:( Didn't realize my templates were empty. oops I removed the photos but I used most of it as .jpeg. Sigh. ok here is the brown template if anyone wanted LO templates to work from. My contribution! :D

The teal ones are too big because of the .jpeg's. I saved them wrong and can't salvage the files as individual freebies. If anyone wants the maple leaf paper or the dark swirl paper or those layout templates let me know. ;)

08-14-2007, 11:15 AM
I worked on some word art in the form of bookmarks! Hope that you guys like them! :)

It' a 5" x 7" medium sized photo. I printed them out on off-white card stock paper and cut them out, punched holes and added tassels.

08-14-2007, 01:17 PM
Great idea Crystal! Thanks.

08-14-2007, 06:01 PM
Here is the smt for the page I made. Just in case someone would like to grab it, improve it, share it again!!! You all know layouts are not my forté!


08-14-2007, 06:02 PM
Oh, and Crystal...

I love those book marks. What a lovely idea! Thank you so much.


08-15-2007, 07:11 AM

Love it:)

Well the link is posted in here and the idea of the challenge is to create items to share so others can use them to make templates to share. I thought. Its definitely worth asking Kim to make sure though.

08-17-2007, 05:30 AM
yes muma i will pm kim to ask her!
thanks !
