I'm thrilled to present the debut of Scrapbook Generation's Designers Challenge Club! The group of about 25 club members met for the first time in mid-September, learned guidelines for the club, and received their first packet of materials. The $15 monthly club fee entitles club members to a packet of materials, the chance to display their own creations and to view the creativity of others in the club.
In mid-October, club members returned to Scrapbook Generation with their projects, all made from the same materials, with the addition of "approved" items like cardstock, stamps, punches, inks and paints and similar products, ribbons and buttons, mini-albums, and much more. The first packet of materials featured five patterned papers and two die-cut papers by BoBunny, a set of Thickers chipboard letters, chipboard buttons, three colors of tulle, a Bling-It swirl by BasicGrey, and flowers by Prima.
We had a great time looking at each other's projects. Some had made only cards, others had made only layouts. Some had made a combination, and others had made party favors, mini-albums, and even home decor items. Everyone had worked hard to add creative touches, and there were many, many ideas to share and learn.
First, some apologies. For some reason, I didn't end up with a photo of Corbi Beshears' project, which was a layout with a "Jacob's Ladder" mini-album incorporated into the page design. I will add that as soon as I can. Also, we have a long-distance club member who has emailed Stacey photos of her projects. However, I'm blogging while at our Branson retreat, and I'll have to add those photos as soon as I get together with Stacey on Monday. We also have a few ladies who were unable to attend Thursday night, and I'll also add their photos as soon as possible. Also apologies if I said something incorrect about any of the projects...I'm working from my pitiful memory, with no notes! I'll learn for next time to write things down!
The following beautiful and creative designs are all brought to you by the talented customers and friends of Scrapbook Generation! We will also be posting these projects on our Facebook page, probably in mini-galleries for each person, which will allow you to easily comment on each card or layout individually. If you would like to join this group, we take new members (both local and long-distance) at any time. Just email or call if you need more details!
Read on, and get inspired!
