Scrapdango update

Unfortunately July was Scrapdango's last month of kits. When I took over in January I certainly did not plan for it to come to an end so soon, but for a number of reasons I won't be able to continue the club.

All kits are still on sale (only $19.95!) while supplies last.

Thank you for your support this year!

Shannon's July Color challenge

Does anyone remember the color schemes of the 50's? I remember my aunt had all teal appliances for YEARS after!! Not sure I am ready for that trend to come back in my kitchen...but we're bringing it back for your challenge!!

Use the colors in the picture (any or all) for inspiration to create a color-inspired layout!

And here is Shannon's example

Kimberely's 50s Food Challenge

Remember those old TV dinners that were new back then?

They were convenient but they never tasted all that good because everything tasted like metal.

So for this challenge make a layout about food - anything will do, cooking it, eating it, have it on a picture, use it as a title etc. And to remember those dinners, have some metal somewhere on the page.

And look at this wonderful summery page by Celeste.

So make a page about food and join us in the forum.

Jessica's 50's Challenge

Jessica works for a company that has been around 50+ years. I was doing some rearranging/cleaning a few weeks back and came across this Paymaster check machine.

Her  challenge for you is tools/machines. Dust off your border punches, cricut, scoring board, heat gun, etc..

And here is an example from Jan. 

I LOVE how she used paper that shows and older model camera.  Great job Jan.

Heather's Drive-in challenge

For our 50's Sock Crop Heather brought back the idea of the "drive in" with a shopping list challenge... picture it being on a board with a speaker.

Order up at least three menu items + any number of pictures and include them on your layout. Just like salt and pepper, pen and adhesive are freebies.

5 buttons
3 journaling cards
6 patterned papers
one sheet of cardstock
15 brads
sketch from a previous Scrapdango challenge
7 flowers
punched or die-cut items

Yum yum!

And Mary created this stunning page,

Mary used 5 buttons, 6 patterned papers, 1 sheet of cardstock (cut up to mat the photos), 15 brads, Thickers, and a punched circle.

So stop by the forum and show us your page using this challenge.
