  • The Groove March 2012 Monthly Freebie Challenge

    Welcome to The Groove's Monthly Freebie Challenge!

    Each month, we feature a great freebie mini-kit and a scrapbooking challenge.

    All you need to do is download the freebie to make your challenge pages. Then, create a layout (or layouts) that steps up to the challenge, upload it to the

    Groove Newsletter Challenges gallery and post a link to your layout in a reply to this thread.

    Details about this month's freebie and challenge hosted by Sandrine Boarqueiro-Verdun are below!

    The Challenge

    With this addon, you will have to make two layouts.

    First layout

    Make a page with:

    · at least six of the nine embies included in the addon

    · the frame (KapiScrap_FunCity_embie9)

    · at least two of the three papers

    You can use the embies as well as the papers as many times as you want. You should write a text along a circle. Please don’t modify the colors of the embies and the papers.

    How to write a text along a circle with Scrapbook MAX?

    Select the menu Object -> Ribbon Text

    Type your text

    Set the font, the character spacing…

    Then select the Advanced tab and check this option: Connect endpoints and click OK.

    Your text will appear on your design space with 3 points… you should remove the second point to create a circle… Right click on the second point then it will disappear and you will get a perfect circle.

    If you want to have the text along all the circle, increase the size of the font and/or increase the character spacing option.

    To resize the “circle” you should select the text, press the shift key and with the mouse you can resize it.

    Second Layout

    Make a page with:

    · at least seven of the nine embies included in the addon

    · at least two of the three papers

    · one photo or two photos BUT you should add one of your photos in a photo mask

    You can use the embies as well as the papers as many times as you want.

    What’s a mask?
    It’s a shape with different levels of transparency or decorative borderlines. To find shapes, click on a paper or photo, then choose Change Shape and Custom Shape on the Properties Box.

    Generally I don't like to publish my picture :-) but I am on this one. So now you could "put a face on a name".

                Here is mine - thanks.
                I've matching the orange pumpkin colours in the photo with the kit. Also the yellow blonde hair with elements. Really helps to co-ordinate a layout and pull it together especially with strong colours. Couldn't help myself as I just love shapes so much. This time the scrolls in corners and tag shape for the paper. Credits in gallery. Thanks for a great challenge.
