  • WEEK #4 | BONFIRE GATHERING

    Welcome to Week #4 Bonfire!! Amie and I hope to see you in the chat room HERE, but if you can’t make it DON’T PANIC! I’m going to add the instructions in this thread so you can follow along. Before we get started with the actual scrap and chat, let’s make sure you know the basic rules. First, all pages need to be created using 100% TDP products, which includes freebies or retired products. Second, you have 24 hours to play, so your layout must be posted to the Challenge Gallery by 3:00 p.m. ET on Friday, July 27th. I’d love to see your pages linked in this thread as well please, so we can see each other’s beautiful layouts and leave some love!
    Alrighty then!! Here we go!!

    1. Start with a neutral solid background.
    2. Add a half page photo
    3.
    Add a strip of pattern paper or two in the middle of your layout.
    4. Use a stamp on your neutral background.
    5. Add a flag to the top right corner.
    6. Add a star to your layout
    7. Use paper strips to add text / story
    8. Add your title
    9. Add your favorite element or two to finish it off.

    That's it! Don't forget, you have 24 hours to finish your page and post it here and in the Challenge Gallery. AND Amie has generously offered a surprise for all those who participate! Woo hoo!! You get to earn a badge AND a surprise.

    I can't wait to see y'all's layouts. I'll post Amie's and mine at the end. I hope you have as much fun as I am having!

        Great way to use the photo in the horizontal position rather than vertical. This really makes it stand out and your photo corners are great!

      My photo wasn't good enough to do 1/2 page.I just added a background paper and reduced it's size with a frame.

      Kits: Dunia 4th of July Documented Kit, AD Going Places Flag, Sahin Around the World, WWC World Geography.

      Font: Festivo Letters & Corbel

      Thanks for looking!

        I love this! The house looks cool, am with you and would prefer the "pre" model.

        Thank you Kim & Amie! The room looked essentially like the photo but with furniture & area rugs. My biggest regret was I did not get photos of it all. I wasn't big into taking pictures back then but this historic one still captures what I remember.

        Beautiful Becky! I love the way you angled that solid small strip of paper and your word strips rock!

      It has been so fun seeing y'all's gorgeous layouts and talking with y'all in the chat room! I just wanted to show you Amie's own layout which started the whole slow scrap!!



      Isn't it fantastic?! Her shadowing is amazing and I'm just in awe!

      And here is my take on the instructions too.


      Apparently I got my left and right mixed up, but hey, it's all okay!!!

      Thank y'all again! And Amie has a great surprise for you. She has a coupon for $5 any purchase of $10 or more. One of us will be messaging those that played a coupon code soon! Great job ladies and I hope you have had as much fun with Summer Camp!
