    Hello everyone, and welcome to the May 2018 TUTORIAL CHALLENGE here at TDP!

    Did you know that TDP has awesome tutorials on its blog every week? They are typically posted to the blog every Tuesday, and always filled with inspirational techniques or ideas to try -- usually with step-by-step visuals for you to follow along!

    For my challenge this month, you will need to find TWO (2) different tips/techniques/etc. that are taught in any of our previous Tutorial Tuesday posts on TDP's blog, and incorporate them into your layout/project. To make it just a little easier for you to find/choose a couple of tutorials to use for your project... we have updated TDP's Pinterest board, and pinned all of the previous Tutorial Tuesday posts into one place.

    Easy peasy... because you can choose any two tutorials that catch your eye. For my layout I chose to use the techniques in the following posts -- Creating a Stamped Title and Combining Patterned Papers...

    • Your must use TWO different tutorials from our previous Tutorial Tuesday posts and create your project using techniques from those 2 posts.
    • Your layout must be loaded into the gallery no later than 11:59pm ET on May 31, 2018.
    • Once you've loaded it into the CHALLENGE GALLERY, leave a comment in this thread with your project AND which tutorials you used.
    • Once you've posted your project here in this thread... copy the URL to that post and add it to the MAY 2018 TRACKING THREAD.
    • Have fun!

        Thanks for a Fun Challenge... For my layout I used techniques outlined in the Custom Journal Strips and Combining Patterned Papers posts.

          Since I don't usually use boldly patterned papers for my backgrounds, and almost never use plaid paper, I went with Selecting a Background & Combining Patterned Papers (you can't tell it from the final page, but I went through just about every patterned paper in the Jaunt kit to find the right stack of three to use for the background and two large pieces under the photo block), and also applied Creating a Cut Out to cut that heart shape out of the red paper strip, and lastly, Creating a Stamped Title because I tried a method different from the one I usually use to make my stamps look more realistic - note that I "stamped" the heart and shoe, not the title.

                I used Combining Patterned Papers and Customizing Digital Elements on my layout. I changed the color of the flower embellishments as well and editing the color a little of the patterned papers.
