July’s ~Think Outside the Box ~ Challenge

We’re heading into the dog days of summer and the heat can really start cramping our creativity in our scrapping. So we’re here to help you “think outside the box” and get those juices flowing again. Your challenge is to create a layout (can be 8x8 or bigger) and think outside the box! What do I mean? Well how many layouts do you have where all the photos are either squares or rectangles, just matted and put on your layout. Boxes, all boxes! Let’s toss those boxes out and do something different. I want at the very least, a different shape for your photos. But if you really want to get creative, cut out those subjects from your photos and add them to the scene of your layout. Removing the frames around the subjects in your photographs adds instant dimension to your pages.

Here’s a design team sample below from Cheryl to get your ideas sparked.
She used Doodlebug Design’s “Cherry Jubilee” paper kit from our Shoppe to create this whimsical garden layout of her two daughters. So get out those scissors and photographs and start creating. You have until July 31st to submit your layout to our flickr group HERE. Tag your entry "NOBOXES". If you have any trouble uploading or tagging your layout, let us know in the Flickr group. We’ll be able to help you.

Here's another example of using circles for photos by Catherine:

Put those thinking caps on!! Let's see what you can come up with!
A winner will be randomly drawn on August 1st, and receive a $20 Gift Certificate to Lil’ Lambs Boutique so you can buy more cool stuff!
