52 Layouts

I want to issue a weekly challenge, inspired by fellow CTMH consultant Cheryl Even. What if, instead of collecting scrapbook supplies, you actually used them? Novel concept, huh? Well, I want to challenge you in 2012 to complete a scrapbook layout every week. If you complete just one layout every week of the year, you will have 52 layouts by the end of the year! That's enough to fill a whole album. I will create a weekly post to which you can link your layout, and we will keep track together of how many layouts you can complete. I will issue a point for each layout completed, redeemable at the end of the year for scrapbooking supplies. You must complete at least 40 layouts, posted weekly, to be eligible to receive your rewards. Who is interested? Please let me know ASAP since the clock has already started ticking on 2012!

My first layout of 2012!  It is the from Cherish how to book and is the Mixing Elements layout.  The how to books are great when you look at your pictures and don't know where to start!  It tell s you what size to cut everything and where to put it on the layout! 

I used the Key to My Heart paper, which is retired...that whole use your stash theme!

The date is stamped using the E1021 Trinity Alphabet and tulip ink!
I also used the Z1395 Irresistibles™ Eclectic Chipboard Die-Cuts for most of the title.  the die cut letters have embossed patterns that show up when you ink them with the color of your choice!

I will leave the link for this week's layout open until Sunday, January 15.

Can't wait to see what you come up with!


  1. Linda, I'm in! I did pretty well last year with getting layouts done, so this will push me to do it again. I don't want a prize though, just the satisfaction of having completed lots of layouts. Thanks for doing this.

  2. I'm in too, but I stink at linky links : ) So mine says just "week 1" because I was trying to copy Cheryl, but I didn't get my name in there. Will it stay that way every week? Do we come back each week and link to a certain post? How does it work?

    I also tried it on a different post, but nothing seemed to happen. HELP!!
