52 Scrapbbooking Challenges #1-5

I've been participating in the 52 scrapbooking challenges at designs in digital (formerly clikchicsdesigns) based on Elisa Flannigan's book. Here are my first five layouts.

1. Whether its a quote, a list of your favourite adjectives or computer-generated phrases, journalling on strips is a great way to add visual excitement to your page. Be creative and use a favourite quote in pieces to add to your design.

2. Convert a favourite photograph into a black-and-white image, and then use it as the focal point photo on your page. It will draw your viewers eye right into the essence of your layout.

3. Use a Ribbon to make a border. No matter how you turn it or what you add to it (think buttons, eyelets, lace and sequins) ribbon is a terrific page border that can be used in so many creative ways - with brads, sequins staples and more. 4. Chipboard Accents. Chipboard is pretty popular at the moment, and by adding chipboard accents to your layouts create a fun and custom look to your layouts. Try using buttons, flowers or anything that appeals to you.5. Embellish a Floral Accent. No matter what your page topic is, I bet you can find a place for a flower accent in your design! But take it up a notch this time. Embellish the centre of your flower with a mini clock, a tiny ribbon or some other embellishment. Dont be afraid to turn a large flower shape into a photo frame!

All credits for these layouts can be found at my designs in digital gallery.
