Challenge #7~ "You Pick Two" - **UPDATED** New DUE DATE!

For this challenge, Scrapdragons will be borrowing from a Panera menu idea. You know how you can pick two items to create your meal? Well here you will be picking at least two items from the following list to create your layout. Remember when looking at the list, you do not need to interpret the photos literally & you can use some creative license with the items. Feel free to think outside the box & see how the list items inspire you. Art is about creative expression not about limitations. We want you to have fun!

So here is the list...pick two of the following items as inspiration for your layout:


2. bling
(glitter, rhinestones..etc..)

3. The word "inspire"


5. an item not intended for scrapbooking

6. more than 5 photos


8. hand written journaling

Remember, we here at Scrapdragons do this to inspire people to create. We are all about fun here! So don't fret or stress! Start the challenge & see where it takes you!

Here are some sample layouts by our fabulous creative team:




Lauren's Card Version

The only thing we ask is that you post a link to your fabulous creation in the comments & let us know what two items you picked.

To be eligible for the awesome prize for this challenge, all layouts must be submitted by midnight November 30th EST. We decided to do only one challenge for the month of November due to Thanksgiving and the hustle and bustle that goes with it!

Can't wait to see what you all come up with!!

PS! Be sure to check back periodically because we're going to post sneak peeks now and then to our prize package.............

Attention All You Card Makers!!

Helloooooooo Scrapdragons!

Yes, it’s card challenge time again, so welcome to a little thing I like to call the “Nothing-Like-the-Last-Minute Procrastinator’s Mass-Producible Halloween Card Challenge”! (snappy title, eh?!) Since time is of the essence, your assignment is to use the same ingredients to make at least two totally spooktacular cards. They can be identical twins…or just kissing cousins…but the point is to get as much bang from your supply buck as possible!

I grabbed a pack of adorable 3-D cat stickers and some “trick-or-treat” ribbon the last time I was at Michaels…threw in glossy black cardstock, a bunch of white rub-on letters, some scraps of patterned paper…et voila!

Halloween postcards for the boys and ghouls in my life!

Happy cardmaking and Happy Halloween!

You have until Midnight EST October 30th to post a link to your card in the comments of this post.

There will be a nice RAK for the winner!

There were so many creative ways you showcased those not so great photos. I have tons of fun new ideas now. Thank you everyone!!

So after all that I guess you probably really want to know who finally won the big prize. You are like, "yeah yeah yeah whatever...hard choices....everyone did fabulous work....come on...just let us know who won already!!"

Well here it is........

Challenge #5

Out of Focus
How many of you have a stack of photos that you wish
were better?
Perhaps they are a bit out of focus.
Maybe someone has their eyes closed. Oops is that a
finger in front of the lens? Whatever the issue I am
sure we all have at least one. I know sometimes I am
so disappointed with these photos because either they
are the only pictures I have a certain event or I just
love the emotion in them even if it isn't the
"perfect" shot.

Well now is your chance to pull those bad photos
out...dust them off...& create something beautiful
with them.

The challenge this time is to scrap one or more bad
photos on a layout.

Remember scrapbooking is about telling the story &
preserving memories. It doesn't always have to be
fabulous photos.

Allow yourself to have some fun with them. Be creative
& make sure to share your link in the comments when
you are done.

Deadline for submissions is midnight EST on October
15th. Our Creative Team will choose a winner shortly
after that for a cool scrappy prize.

Can't wait to see what you come up with!!

Here's what our creative team came up with:

Laura's Layout
