Lulupu Challenge#7- My Favorite Month of the year

Good morning friends.

This is Snehal here to announce our fresh n fun challenge for the month!

How fast the time flies! Its already the last month of the year and to bid farewell to 2012 we have yet another interesting challenge at Lulupu.

Have you guessed it yet? Well, the challenge this month is to create a scrapbook page layout with "Your favorite month of 2012" in focus. How cool is that? After all its time to say bye bye 2012 and capture some beautiful memories in your Scrapbooks!

Idea is to create a page layout for the best month of the year or your favorite month. It could be just about anything significant - occasion, birthday, baby,marriage  etc. As long as its special for you.

We wish to see you get a little nostalgic.

However we have a twit here - Use minimal ready to use embellishments!

To get you groovy we want you to maximize your Pattern papers and use them to create interesting embellishments out of it, layering, fussy cutting designs, die cuts, punch outs and other such techniques.... we would like to see how you are using more pattern papers than ready to use embellishments alone on your layout.

So here is my inspiration for Challenge#7. Lots of pics I promise!

I received the Colorbok In Bloom 12 by 12 Page Kit in my Lulupu DT Kit and had fun with all the yum elements it had to offer! Its a great buy if you need some papers, elements, stickers and coordinating ideas.

I have created a page for a friend with her childhood pictures here.These are her birthday pictures with her siblings and it is the best month for her.

I have woven Pattern Paper strips to make the background and I have also made flower embellishments with Pattern Papers and punched out circles from them to make the big flower as a matting for the photo.

The label accents for journalling

The corners to frame the pic

The sliding tags for extra journalling
In this post I am sharing a pictorial tutorial  for the paper weaving.

Cut strips out of Pattern Papers (PP) for weaving
Lay them on the card stock (CS)

Now add the other strips horizontally to complete the weaving pattern

Finish the Background

I hope you find the Challenge interesting and get going with your pages. IF you have never tried Scrapbooking then this whole month the DT will be showcasing amazing Layout ideas, techniques and tips on making your scrapbooks fun! So keep hopping along! Hope to see you join us soon!
