NutkinTailz Designs - An Extra Challenge

Wed Apr 06, 2016 1:25 am

WOW everyone, what a lot of challenges are on offer this month and I've decided to jump in and hold one. I'm going with an oldie but goodie. I know that it's a popular challenge so I thought what a better way to get the action started. Call it what you will, Mix N Match, Recipe or Scrap Mix but it's great fun and makes your challenge exactly that. I love doing them as it makes me scrap out of my comfort zone.


Mix N Match

Here's how the challenge works.

You use your date of birth and age to find the elements for your page. My date of birth is 23/03/1961, and I'm 55. Add each set of numerals until you have a single digit.
Example:
Month (0+3) = 3
Date (2+3) = 5
Year (1+9+6+1)=17 (1+7) = 8
Age (5+5) = 10 (1+0) = 1

There are four categories:
Month = Inspiration - Family Member
Date = Title - Vertical Title
Year = Element - Frame
Age = Paper - Dots

Then use the following chart to find your "mix". To make it an easier mix seeing it's our first month you can have other elements than what your chart denotes but you MUST have what is on the chart, anything extra is ok.

If I'm not clear and you're stuck just ask as many questions as needed and I'll do my best to explain things a little clearer :)

If you get stuck just leave a note here or PM me and don’t forget to upload your layout to the gallery

and don't forget to link back here so we can all see what you’ve created and leave you some praise 

Also as an added bonus if you use one of my purchased products only I'll give you a $5.00 gift coupon to be spent in my store.

Here’s my page as an example for you all, just so you can see how it’s done

Ok, so I need some help...my birth month is Nov., which is 1+1=2, which means I need a nursery rhyme for inspiration. My mind is a blank, please help! What possible rhyme could I use for inspiration?????

OK, I've got one:
Cut thistles in May,
They'll grow in a day;
Cut them in June,
That is too soon;
Cut them in July,
Then they will die.

Back soon with a page...TA DA!

Prickly Flower

1. Year-Element: (1+9+4+8=4) Ribbon
2. Age-Paper: (6+7=4) Flower
3. Month-Inspiration: 11 (1+1=2) Nursery Rhyme
Cut thistles in May...
4. Date-Title: 25 (2+5=7) Use 2 alphas. Well, I used 2 different fonts to make my title, and applied different layer styles to them, hopefully that will count as 2 different alphas...:)(There wasn't an alpha in the kit)
I also used Parfumerie de Vintage by Nutkin Tailz for a bonus!
