Welcome to The Groove's Monthly Freebie Challenge!
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 to make your challenge pages. Then, create a layout (or layouts) that steps up to the challenge, upload it to the
Groove Newsletter Challenges gallery and post a link to your layout in a reply to this thread.
Details about this month's freebie and challenge are below.
This month, designer Michelle McCoy has shared a beautiful mini-kit with you that's ideal for Valentine's Day scrapping, or any kind of heartfelt layout! Simply click on the file named Groove-Feb2011.smb - you'll find it below under Attached Files. Download and save, then double-click on the saved file to import it into Scrapbook MAX!.
You'll find the kit's items under Object> Embellishment and under Page> Settings by choosing Background Image and Select Background.
"We are doing a “Double Vision ~ Love Letter” layout for this challenge…
- Download my mini kit. All pieces come from both my “I Need u” Kits…Use at least 4 items from the mini to make your layout…Choose ONE photo to use, but we are going to use it twice in our layout....
- Add the photo to your layout and make it big. Add some transparency to it. Then make your layout like usual adding the same photo again with no transparency added to it.
- Then write a love letter to the person/people that are in the photo you are using…
*See my example layout called "Love You Phil" for an idea (attached below)*
- Next, upload your layout to our gallery in the Groove Newsletter Challenges category, then post it here in this thread for us to see..It’s that time of month to share the love, so let’s see it!"
Thanks, Michelle - and let's get scrappin', everyone!
