Welcome to The Groove's Monthly Freebie Challenge!
Hello from The Groove, Scrapbook MAX!'s *free*monthly newsletter.
Each month, a featured designer offers a great freebie mini-kit and issues a challenge based on that kit.
All you need to do is download the freebie, create a layout that steps up to the challenge, upload it to your gallery, and post a link to your layout in a reply to this thread!
Details about this month's freebie and challenge are below!
The “Freebie” Part!
Michelle McCoy has made an awesome kit for "stamp-y" pages - very cool!
The “Challenge” Part!
Here's the challenge from Michelle:
This month I thought I would try something easy, but different from the ordinary “Fall” or “Halloween” theme for October. I think this challenge will keep your ideas flowing since there are so many ways to be creative with this.
Here is what I want you to do…
1.) Download freebie.
2.) Using the stamp templates provided, you are to make a layout look like a postal stamp..basically we are making our own personal stamp, but as a layout. Templates provided can be used for 12x12, 8x8, 5x7 or 4x6 in size.
3.) You can ONLY use items from the kit provided. But you MAY change the color of anything you use and you may make other embellishments out of the backgrounds as well…
4.) Upload your layout to the gallery and add the image or link to your page, here in this thread.
5.) ALL participants have a chance to win the new updated ScrapbookMax 2.0 software (or, the Scrapbook MAX! 2.0 Expansion Pack of your choice). Every week, I will randomly pick one person who places a layout for this challenge - and that person wins the prize! If you don’t win the first week, don’t give up, make another page for the second week, etc etc…Good luck to you!
6.) If you would like to share your template for others to have, by all means, upload the .smt file here as well..
I hope you have fun with this one, and remember, if you have any questions…Pleeeeeeease ~ ask away…((HUGS))
