(The 275 Photos Challenge has arrived!!)
To celebrate 10 years of designing I had to go BIG. I wanted a challenge that would inspire me to sift through hundreds of photos quietly tucked away on my hard drive. Photos that rarely see the light of day, though the memories behind them are constantly revived in stories my family tell over & over again.
My Theme: I had the idea to create an album that would celebrate another special anniversary coming up later this year – my 15th wedding anniversary. 15 years of photos & stories + a goal to scrap a minimum of 275 photos – overwhelming to say the least, but a challenge I’m excited to take on.
Your Theme: Be inspired by a single trip or a lifetime of travels & vacations – a series of layouts or an album that will finally give you a one-stop place to show off some or all of your favorite adventures. Or use this challenge to share your experience as a mom/grandmother/wife/partner/sister/aunt/friend as you celebrate the people you love most. This challenge is also the perfect opportunity to begin organizing and archiving those stacks of heritage photos as you begin to create a family tree/history album. Art, hobbies, work, holidays & special occasions – your theme is waiting for you somewhere on your hard drive or in your printed photo albums.
Since no one was able to build Rome in one day, neither will we! The 275 Photos Challenge will continue to unfold over the next few months. This month we’re starting with baby steps – 10 photos. Next month, we’ll level up and try our hand at 15 (and so forth)!
By the end of this challenge 275 of your photos (and maybe even more) will hold a place of honor in your layouts, scrapbooks or photo books!
To help ease into this project I’ve created two new products to help organize your photos!
These packs + many more of my Quick Page albums are on sale for this challenge. Find all of these products in the Quick Pages & Albums category in my shoppe.
To get you started, grab this freebie pack of two sample quick pages from the Still Life Collection: 10 + 15 + 25 Quick Pages Pack. This freebie will be available ONLY for duration of this challenge.
Your challenge over the next two weeks is to be inspired by (and scrap) 10 photos – these can all come from the same day or can span decades. These 10 photos can be scrapped on one single page or celebrated over a series of pages – your choice!
For a little more guided inspiration, you can do what I did for my first set layouts and be inspired by the story starter “10 Days of . . .”. Find 10 photos from 10 different days and celebrate the thematic link that joins the photos together. Feel free to create a card, a single layout or series of layouts, or any other project.
Use the Still Life Collection: 10 + 15 + 25 Quick Pages Pack Sampler or any other products from my shoppe, then post your masterpiece(s) in my gallery here by midnight EST on Sunday, January 29th, 2017.
Everyone who participates in this challenge will receive a gift coupon for $3 to my shoppe (one coupon per customer).
I am also giving away two $10 coupons to my shoppe to two lucky participants in a random draw at the end of this challenge (one coupon per customer)!
Don’t forget to come back to this thread at Oscraps to post a link to layout, so that we can leave you some love!
Feel free to submit as many layouts as you like! The more you enter, the greater your chances will be to win the $10 coupon!
Meet me here to start this exciting challenge!! 🙂
