View Full Version : March PS - Day 7

03-16-2013, 05:52 AM
Woohoo - surprise! You're getting TWO downloads today! :((:(( BUT - you may use only one for your PS layout....

First I have to confess something: On day 1 I made a mistake :o ... I forgot to tell you not to recolor all the greyscale elements.:duh: ... so this PS has been turning out a little different from what I had in mind, but I love seeing all your pages and ideas and decided to "go with the flow", lol.:)) Today was the "add-a-little-color-day" and I will go with that plan. Feel free to recolor or not as much as you like - but make sure to use only one of the downloads. I'm very curious and looking forward to seeing your final pages!


Instructions: Add at least 5 "things" (elements or papers) of either the yellow or the blue download! (you may download both, but use only one for your page). You may recolor as much as you want, even elements or papers you have added during the other days of the PS. No moving them though.

If you have questions regarding the instructions, feel free to post them in this thread.

Upload your layout to the Progressive Scrap Gallery (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=1032) - and the Monthly Mega Gallery (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1515-march-2013you-make-me-happy.html), if you want to - then come back here and post the link to your layout so I can include you in the poll!

You have until Sunday night to complete your layout (remember I will not be able to send out links after Sunday, 4 pm EST due to living in a different time zone), upload it to the gallery and leave a link here in this thread. I will post the poll on Monday afternoon my time (about 10 am EST, if RL doesn't interfere, lol). The poll will stay open for two days - and I would love to see you all vote!!

I did post a sign-up thread for the QP exchange (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/forum/showthread.php?p=147155#post147155), with all the info and deadlines for that - since your page is already done it's really easy to participate.

Thank you for all your well-wishes for our daughter and sharing stories about your kids. I enjoyed reading them, some made me chuckle, others made me nod my head "wisely" - thank you for caring :XX

Min, what a FUN week! This is a beautiful kit and I had so much fun not only working with my layout, but watching what everyone else was doing. The layouts are ALL beautiful!!! Thank you so much!! Oh---and I used the yellow group. One flower in the top corner cluster and 4 other items in my very bottom small cluster.

Thanks Min, trust you to come up with a twist at the end. I used the yellow pack. Since I wanted only a bit of green in my layout, I recoloured most of my stuff.

Here's my final - I took two of the yellow elements and actually took the color out of them (one paper circle on the right bottom and a flower on the left upper part of the frame).

Well, Min, that threw me for a loop. I had found a picture that would pop with all the neutral papers and elements. Thankfully the colored items worked with my picture. I used a soft light blend mode on the yellow paper, the green leaves, the single yellow real flower and two of the yellow paper flower. Thanks for a fun week.


03-16-2013, 04:58 PM
Here is mine. I liked the grey, so no recolouring here

03-16-2013, 05:32 PM
Marvelous pages are posted. Thanks Min for another great PS. Here's mine

03-16-2013, 05:41 PM
I went with the blue ... SO happy to see color ... ;-)

Amazing pages. So enjoyed the challenge again. Here is my final page. I chose Blue and just recolored the 2 sets of leaves to match the others, added 2 blue flowers and the pretty blue paper. Thanks for everything.

03-16-2013, 08:29 PM

There some great finished pages. Congratulations everyone. Thank you Min for hosting this challenge; I know that there is a lot of work involved for you.

I think this is the hardest scrapping 'thing' I've ever done. It's the first progressive scrap I've participated in and I think I've learned a lot - mainly what NOT to do next time. I was completely thrown by the addition of the colour thing on the last day, so I did a major turn around and basically recoloured everything. Below is my finished page, but I've also put in the gallery the other page (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/member-galleries/p122424-jane-and-tom.html) I did where I have stuck to the original colouring.

This is a photo of my late mother when she was a young woman and before she was married. The quote is particularly appropriate because mum was such a romantic at heart (she always saw life through rose coloured glasses) and she also loved poetry.

Here's my Day 7, Min. I chose 'yellow.' Thanks for another fun PS and the interesting twist on the last day!

Thanks for a fun and challenging PS. I am usually a blue person(fav color) but decided to try yellow this time with a little blue. Here is mine: http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/progressive-scraps/p122434-day-7-final-ps-march-2013.html


03-17-2013, 04:54 AM

03-17-2013, 05:54 AM
This was a great experience working with this page one day at a time. Not being able to move things around...trying to envision the finished product...Thanks for sharing this challenge! Here is my finished product.

Here's my final layout. I ususally go with blue but this one just seemed to need the bright yellow! Thanks for the challenge - l LOVE these!


03-17-2013, 07:43 AM
This was really challenging. Thank you Min. Recoulouring? I don't know how it works! Blending, clustering and shadowing was difficult enough. I feel satisfied about the blended frame.

03-17-2013, 08:58 AM
Here is my final day. I chose blue and recolored it and some other things in my favorite color lilac and green for freshness.
Thanks Min for this interesting challange :O ;)

03-17-2013, 09:51 AM
Thanks so much Min for another great Progressive Scrap - these last kits were AWESOME - loved both of them so I created 2 Layouts :(( one from each coloured kit - I didn't recolour any of my grey... ;)I loved the effect without that... plus I didn't know you had too so that let me off 0:)

Please use the BLUE coloured one for the CONTEST :DD - YIKES that was a hard choice to make - I LOVE THEM BOTH... what's your oppinion...

**PLUS since I used a template - I'm not sure whether I can join in on the QP Exchange... please let me know Min... I won't be able to upload it until we reach home our Tuesday 19th :confused:

1. (BLUE) Tahbilk Estate ~ http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/progressive-scraps/p122465-tahbilk-estate.html

WOW ladies what amazing layouts!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is my step 7 (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/progressive-scraps/p122496-dss-mar-ps-07-6grand.html):
THANKS so much to all the designers for the gorgeous papers and elements :)
And THANK YOU to Min for hosting another great challenge. I loved working with the grey scale.
I used the yellow kit and recolored the elements to match the soft pink in my granddaughters pjs.

This could me sitting on that equipment...cause I would much rather be digi scrapping than doing my excercise!LOL!!!

03-17-2013, 05:05 PM
Here's mine, I wasn't sure if you wanted 5 different things or just 5 things. I used 5 of the leaves and recolored to match the blue I had in my picture.

Wow!!! I've just been and checked out everyone's pages. I'm blown away with what you all have done for this progressive challenge. They are all so different, and all quite lovely. I've learned a lot and I'm looking forward to the next progressive challenge.

03-18-2013, 04:54 AM
Day 7 is complete. I used pictures of my husband and his family from the 1960's.

Thank you, Min for hosting the Callenge, and for putting up with me as I struggled through internet issues. Who knew I could use my cell phone as a hotspot? I learned a lot about changing hues/saturation during this challenge.


03-18-2013, 04:57 AM
I know I am a day to late, but still wanted to show you all my finished layout for this scrap. Not my most favorite one, but I love it anyways, LOL


03-18-2013, 08:26 AM
**PLUS since I used a template - I'm not sure whether I can join in on the QP Exchange... please let me know Min... I won't be able to upload it until we reach home our Tuesday 19th :confused:

Jemima, that depends on the tou of the template you used. Take a look and if in doubt contact the designer of the template and ask her.

Tuesday won't be a problem - if I know your page is coming I will wait :D

This was really challenging. Thank you Min. Recoulouring? I don't know how it works! Blending, clustering and shadowing was difficult enough. I feel satisfied about the blended frame.
