Enmarc 2012 Spring Blog Hop

I'm so happy that you have decided to join us for the Enmarc Spring 2012 Blog Hop!  For those of you who are new to the site, Enmarc is a relatively new Social Network where a wonderful group of scrapbookers encourage and motivate each other in our love for scrapping!  
New sketches are posted once a challenge is finished and sample Layouts are uploaded by members to provide inspiration to all. Enmarc sponsors all the challenges where you can win an awesome prize for each challenge entered.
 Our forum contains Tutorials, Tips & Tricks and General Discussions.   We believe we have one of the friendliest communities of scrappers on the web, and are so glad that you have decided to check us out during our blog hop!
And now, a little bit about this blog hop:
The Enmarc Spring 2012 Blog Hop starts Saturday 1st September 2012 and runs until 11:59 pm South African time on Sunday 30th September 2012.  That’s right it runs for a whole month.
There are 8 Design Team, Contributing Design Team members and Administrators from Enmarc hosting the blog hop. They will each have a Challenge for you to do and a prize that you can win. Also some of the hosts of the group do not have a Blog, but their challenges will be posted together with all the other challenges on the Enmarc Social Site as well as on their Facebook pages, so make sure you befriend them on Facebook.
Not only do you have a chance to win a prize for each challenge you enter, but if you complete and post an entry for EVERY challenge along the blog hop by 30th September 2012, you're name will be entered into a random draw for a wonderful prize supplied by Enmarc Crafts
On every blog in the hop you must become a follower and leave a little love (a comment) for the host.
Okay, are you ready to start the Enmarc Spring Blog Hop?  Here is the first Challenge.


If you started here at Challenge 1, then you are in the right place J
I have put my hand into creating a sketch for a double page layout and wanted to do a layout from my own sketch. I also watched a tutorial on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I67QgRJsuMg) on how to make concertina butterflies which I really wanted to try out. OPTIONAL:- If you make a concertina butterfly or butterflies from this tutorial and use it on your LO, it will earn you another entry for the draw, thus TWO entries

So my Challenge to you is to use my sketch as inspiration and at least TWO Enmarc Chippies (Whiteboard/chipboard products) to create a double page Layout.  
§  You may use this sketch any way round : flip it, use it upside down, back to front etc.
§  If there is one place holder for a photo you may change it for smaller photos or vice versa.
§  A flower on the page may be replaced for stars or gears or butterflies or whatever comes to mind.
§  A line on the page may be represented as ribbon, brads, stitching etc
§  This sketch is to serve as a starting point for your layout - be inspired and create a masterpiece to upload to the Gallery!

Here’s the Sketch you must use as your inspiration:

And here is the Layout I created from the sketch – I have Flipped and Mirrored the Sketch

Specific Challenge 1 (CH1)Rules: 
1.     You must become a follower of my Blog – http://www.emsigebiene.blogspot.com
2.    Be sure that you use at least TWO Enmarc whiteboard/chipboard products and name them in the comment section when you post your layout to the gallery. You can go to the Enmarc Crafts website’s Catalogue to get the names of the products you used if you do not have the packaging anymore.
3.  Please leave me a comment here on the blog and tell me who or what is your favourite topic to scrap.
4.  You must upload your Layout/Card/Project to the Enmarc Gallery. You must tag your layout correctly in order for it to be entered into the challenge. For my challenge, the tag would be:  SPR2012,CH1  - NO space between SPR and 2012, separated by a comma and then the challenge number with no space either.
5. Come back to my Blog and provide a link to your layout in the Enmarc gallery - Hi-lite the information in the URL (address bar at the top of the page where your LO is after you have posted it to the gallery and opened the page again) right click the hi-lited address and click ‘copy’ then back to my blog and in the comments section, right click again and click ‘paste’ and post a comment so I know that you have posted your LO in the gallery.
6. I will randomly select one person who completed Challenge 1 to receive the candy I am offering. Draw will be done not later than 3 October 2012


Thank you so much for playing along :-))

Alma this layout is gorgeous. Adore the butterflies and how you have used them. Is it OK to post a pic on my blog.

Haven't done very much scrapbooking but your design above has given me a little itch to have a go.

Hugs Shirley x x

Dit was een van my lekkerste scrap bladsye veral die maak van die skoenlappers altyd lekker om iets nuuts te leer.
