It’s time for 4 play, one of the best posts of the week! This week we are featuring 4 great kits by 4 great designers. 4 Design House Digital decorators each created a layout to inspire you. I thought I’d add in a challenge this time also by using a calendar kit by Tiffany Tillman.
Every Monday we bring you 4 kits to use in our challenge. For today only, three kits will be priced at $1 each with one special kit for FREE. Your challenge is to create a layout using these 4 kits exclusively. Upload your layout into our gallery and then post the link in the comments section below to be entered to win a Design House Digital gift certificate. (Winner will be announced in the 4Play post next week). The special prices end Monday at midnight PST.
Jennifer Papadimitriou – My first thought was to use the calendars as little frames for my layout. I had a lot of random shots of my Aunt and daughter so duplicated the frames a bunch of times. I had a few photos with bright colours that didn’t match, so I changed them to black and white. I loved the flower doodles so I clipped a pretty purple pattern to them as well!
Jennifer Valencia – I loved the choice of Tiffany’s calendar template, because it was perfect for a layout featuring — you guessed it — my daughter’s favorite calendar! I love the pretty blues in Karen’s kit, and Erica’s alpha was perfect for a title. A swirled paper from Jen added the perfect pop of color.
Christy Carlson – When I first saw this weeks choices, I really like the challenge of using a calendar on a scrapbook page. I decided to highlight an important date both with the calendar and the picture. I don’t do patterned backgrounds so it was also fun to incorporate that wonderful purple paper into my page. After that I just started layering papers, ribbons and elements until I got the look I wanted. I highlighted our special date again with the alpha stamp #4 and done! Loved working with the blues and purples (purple=another thing that I don’t do very often!)
Missy Backues – I thought Tiffany’s calendar template made a great template to use on a layout in addition to a standalone calendar. I chose to use a multiple photo template but use two of the areas to show off patterned papers. I added the gorgeous papers from both Karen and Jen, and had fun “stamping” Erica’s alphabet on my layout for the title. The colors in the kit worked well with a photo of my daughter on the day she got her braces off, but I decided to change the photo to black and white after seeing it on the layout.
Ok now it’s your turn! Get the kits at their special price today and scrap away, then upload your layout for a chance to win. Congrats to treasurebachs, the winner of last week’s 4 Play Challenge!
