November LOAW #3 Challenge

We're excited to feature these weekly challenges from the SC community! Below you'll find November's LOAW challenge #3. Post your project in the gallery and copy a link to the comments below. You can enter anytime in November! Check in each week as we share a new challenge with you.

We are looking for a LOAW host for December! If you're interested in hosting the weekly challenges, please reach out using the Contact Us form!


Challenge #3

For this week's challenge, use circles in three different ways! On this layout, Maggie incorporated circles by using a patterned paper with circles as her background, using punched circles around her photo, and adding her date on a curve. Try these ideas on your own projects. We can't wait to see!

Now it’s your turn to create a project based on this week's challenge! Share your new project for the challenge in the SC gallery, then link up your project in the comments of this post by November 30th. We will draw a winner to win a $10 gift card to the Studio Calico Shop!


Guidelines for LOAW participants: 

The LOAW (layout-a-week) challenge came about from members challenging and encouraging one another to use their kits. Because it began before SC offered card and Project Life® kits, the challenge was for layouts, hence LOAW. Since scrapbook, card and PL kits are a part of SC's subscriptions, those types of projects are now included in LOAW. That means you can submit a LO, card, PL spread, minibook, or art journal page to a LOAW challenge. 

If you have trouble interpreting the challenge for the type of crafter you are, ask the host (person posting the challenge) for suggestions. Sometimes ideas we come up with make perfect sense in our minds, but don't translate as easily as we expect to another type of paper crafting. 

Each person may submit one unique project per challenge, i.e. you cannot submit the same project for two LOAWs. It's okay to combine LOAW with another challenge, though, such as a sketch or technique challenge. 

The project you submit should be one that is created in response to the LOAW challenge, which means no posting of older projects no matter how perfectly they fit the challenge. Any project submitted to the challenge should be made in the month of the challenge. 

Deadline for submissions is the last day of the month. Once the month changes on the SC site, it's too late to post for a chance to win. (I wanted to make note of this because I am a procrastinator and I'm sure there are a few more like me out there doing everything at the last minute.) 

When submitting a project for LOAW, please include a picture of your project and a link to it in the SC gallery on the challenge thread. Also, if the challenge asks for additional information, e.g. explain your inspiration, please include that in your submission post. SC generously offers a $10 GC to one participant. It's actually a promotion code good for 30 days. The winner's name is pulled from all of the entries. So if you enter one challenge, you have one chance of winning; two entries, two chances; etc. Hope you take a chance and take on one or more of the LOAW challenges each month.

    I used a circle doily and label for my greeting, papers with dots on then, and tiny round rhinestones for my candles.

    Dots on background, circle punches of three different sizes, and some stickers arranged around a circle; I kept it pretty close to the sketch.

    I used silver and gold together to create this wintery card. Circle cardstock punch, sentiment stamped around the circle in a circle, and the sequins.

    Here's my take, a small Christmas card. Paper with dots, punched out circles made into Christmas ornaments and small red pearls.
