  • SEPTEMBER 2021 | SANS PHOTO CHALLENGE from KARLA NOEL DESIGN

    Hi Everyone! Barbara here... and this month, I'm hosting the "Sans Photo Challenge" with Karla Noél!

    Kicking off the month of September, we wanted to make this extra challenging. It's time to tuck your photo stashes away and put your lens caps back on.

    That's right darlings... NO PHOTOS ALLOWED. Why? Well, per Karla -- "for some time now I have been on that documentation tip. I've been filling up my planners and journals with the story...with words."



    "I, as we all, have had so much on my mind, happening and to say. Oftentimes all I have to work with at hand is my trusty pencil and paper. 'And you know what? That's totally okay. I still have my photos safe and building and yet the ease and convenience of my journal right there ready on my table is invaluable. Pictures are worth 1000 words. Cool. No harm in documenting them either Above is my sketch of the layout I worked on for this challenge. Perfectly Imperfect. Just how I like it."

    "I think we all can do this right?"


    Here are the details to my SANS PHOTO CHALLENGE:

    1.) You may not use any pictures. You may draw/doodle but no actual photos.
    2.) You must include a noticeable number. It can not be mixed in with your journaling to count. It has to stand out. Examples would be a sticker or a stamp.
    3.) You must include journaling. More than just a sentence or two. Let's say (for the sake of throwing out a number...) 25% or more of journaling.
    4.) You must use a frame. It can be dimensional or a stamp frame.
    5.) Have fun yo!!!!!

    *Below is a FREE optional download for you all to help you with your page/spread. It's not mandatory that you use this kit or any of my designs. (although I kind of dig them myself ) I hope you enjoy! ‘And if you have any questions please tag me Karla Noél

    .

    Both Barbara and I got to work on some pages for your inspiration. Hope you find it, we had a blast!

    Here is my take on the Sans Photo Challenge:


    Kits used: Ledger Papers No.1, Routine, Back At It, Mama Bear, Stamp Essentials No.1, 12 Days of Noél (temporarily unavailable), Custom Other.

    All digital designs used are from me, Karla Noél. I wanted to go digi journal with this one. I'm all about that realism so to make it look like my journals at home was what I was going for. I think I made it work ^_^

    Then there is Barbara's layout that, once again, made me squeal out loud! Man, she just nails it Every. Single. Time.



    Barbara created her page using:
    Stamp Essentials No. 1 Freebie (link above!)
    Karla Noel Designs and Sabrina Creations: iArt
    Karla Noel Designs and Sabrina Creations: Word Stamps
    Karla Noel Designs and Anita Designs: Audacity Elements
    Karla Noel Designs and Anita Designs: Audacity Stamps
    Julia Makotinsky: Framed Elements

      I can't wait to see what you come up with! It took me a while of thinking about it to think of what I was going to do ... but it was fun once I started!

    I think I got it all ... no photos, a couple of stand-out numbers, more than two lines of journaling, and at least one frame. This one took awhile, but it sure was fun.

      Life sure gets busy doesn't it?! Great documentation!

    I struggled to come up with a layout idea until this week... my son has been waiting to fly since the beginning of August... not for lack of trying just weather delays and such. Finally got the layout done. Hopefully I included enough journaling.

      Great page! That's a lot of waiting he's having to do. I'm sure he'll be thrilled when he can finally fly!

    I decided that I needed to create a inspiration piece for my wall. Lately I don't have any "umph" to do much of anything. Doctor just put me on anti-depression meds so that should to to help me soon.
