Day: May 17, 2010

It is time for the Stampamemory Creative Challenge.  This month- Ros asked us to ‘think outside the square’ and challenged us to create a ‘shaped’ layout.  For full details of this challenge please visit the stampamemory blog


Ros is so creative with stuff like this but I must confess that I wasn’t sure where to start with her latest challenge.  Yes- I know I know! It IS called a CHALLENGE for a reason!  I tend to be mostly a 12 x 12 scrapper and if I deviate from that it is normally still a square shape.  (eg mini album or 6×6 or 8×8 scrapbook layout)  Due to the albums I store my pages in I decided that whatever shape I used for my layout I was going to ensure that it still fitted on a 12 x 12 cardstock base so it would fit nicely in my albums.   It was my plan to photograph my layout and then secure it to cardstock later but the base was too flimsy- so please just pretend that it isn’t secured to a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock.  🙂 

As you can see I ended up ‘playing it safe’ and kept things simple.  The shape of my layout was inspired by Stampin’ Ups top note die!  I’m sure you have plenty of great ideas for a ‘shaped’ layout so I look forward to seeing your entry in this fortnight’s challenge!
