Digital Scrapbooking Challenge and Freebie by Carena

Hi everyone. Wow it’s been sometime since we have had a Special Edition of the Groove Newsletter. It is my pleasure to be able to provide this issue for you all. I have a great new challenge for you all! You’ll also find a coupon code below that you can use to save 20% on Carena’s designs – one week only (ends April 16, 2014!).

I have a MINI Challenge Kit Delight Bonus for you to DOWNLOAD HERE and to work with. Please check out the PDF included which might help you and inspire your creations. Below are the rules of the challenge.


1. Use only parts provided in the Delight Bonus or from the Kit: Delight along with your own photo/s and Title Text.

2. Use the paper 2 times on your layout – whether you use a shape or like I have a simple twist and darkening or lightening of 1 of them.

3. Use the frame provided in another area of your layout not as a frame but decorative.

4. Try using some part of the bonus whether the leaves like I have or another element with a lowered opacity. This is a favorite technique I love to use to make the papers look different. It can really add so much to your layouts.

5. Mostly the challenge is to have fun.

Please post your layouts in the Scrapbook Max Gallery Groove Challenge Gallery and join us by sharing your link and layout in the forum where I will host the challenge – SEE HERE. We all love to encourage and support our members. It’s a great community and family atmosphere.

Here is my layout I’ve done. I hope you love working with this mini.

For those who purchase the Kit: Delight or BUNDLE (bundle offers great bonus savings for you to enjoy) from store and use it in your challenge layout I have a SURPRISE BONUS GIFT FOR YOU.

How Cool is that? Remember you must add your layout to the gallery and forum. Be sure to have your messages enabled or I won’t be able to contact you with the Surprise Bonus Gift should you purchase and use parts from the kit.

Here is a quick look at the FULL BUNDLE

and now I would like to share with you some of my latest kits in store - see HERE for my latests products in store.
