Jump Into Our June Challenges!

The sun is out.  The heat is up.  The kids are home!  Why not grab some fantastic project ideas from one of our June Challenges to help ward off that dreaded  'I'm bored' mantra soon to be heard from kids around the country this summer!

Card Challenge - By bluejeans7 (Angela)
Paper or Digital Scrapbooking

One of my favorite techniques is distressing. I totally love the look and I think it's a great technique to use when you are creating masculine cards. So this month you need to use distressing on a Father's Day card. Sanding, inking, tearing, etc......

Countdown Challenge - By sarahwhithers (Jennifer)
Paper or Digital Scrapbooking

For this challenge you will create a layout using a countdown method of items. I will list five different kinds of things (eg. elements, papers, photos) for you to use in your layout. Every month there will be five new items for you to use. This month I thought of summer and being outside by the pool!

5 - star elements
4 - lines of journaling
3 - wavy elements (can be a flourish, wavy strings or ribbons, anything as long as it's wavy!)
2 - pictures
1 - water themed item (can be an element, paper, picture, anything as long as it related to water)

You are welcome to use more than these items (eg. 5 lines fo journaling instead of 4 is fine) just as long as you meet the required list and numbers asked for each. A page example is seen below.
