June 1st Challenge + Meet Our June Guest *EMELINE SEET*

1st of June! Time for a new season..summer in half the countries of the world...winter in others! Spare a thought for us Australians..we are REALLY feeling the cold this year! I sure hope its warm where YOU are :o)

Time to reveal our new challenge for the month of June! 


Our JOURNALLING CRITERIA this time is to journal about a female. It can be ANYONE...your self, your best friend, your daughter,grandma, mum, sister, cat. ...As long as you write at least 2 sentences about the female in the photo (you can always create a CARD or ALTERED item based on this sketch and use a quote instead) . Your jounralling can be any type, i.e. typed, printed etc. 

To help you with this I designed a feminine looking sketch for you..


Welcoming this month, the SUPER AMAZING ..

I am from Singapore. A full time mommy to two beautiful kids, whom are also my frequently scrapped subjects. Having paper-crafting for more than 7 years ago, I am thankful for opportunities that have come my way which allowed me to be involved with Melissa Frances, Webster's Pages, Glitz Designs, Tattered Angels and Dusty Attic. Also an instructor for my local store in Singapore, I conduct regular workshops. I am truly blessed and humbled to have the opportunities to travel to Malaysia and Indonesia regularly to conduct papercraft-related workshops. I count myself fortunate to have over 100 of my works in print in various US scrapbooking/ papercraft magazines and UK/French/Russian/Australian's scrapbooking magazines and idea books. Thank you SO Much for having me as your guest! =)

A warm welcome also to our winner from the last challenge..

  11. Hi Nadia,

    Ok so I understand how your challenges work every month, can you handwrite your journaling this time or does it always have to be typd? I did see some hand written strips this time so I was thinking it may have been one of the requirements on the last challenge. I am sorry to have to ask again?

    The DT layouts are beautiful and so full of life!! Thanks so much for sharing so many amazing layouts this challenge.

    Here is sending some warmth to the colder areas, it is 101 degrees here in TX today. Can you plz send us some cool weather? TIA <3


  12. Hi BlessedinTexas (sorry I do not recall your actual name :o)

    No, you do not need to type it this time. You only need to type it if it specifically asks you to. This time you are allowed to handwrite it, print it whatever you like. Thats why you still see some examples from our DT that are typed. Because yes, you can type but you dont need to. But thank you for asking because I will need to make that clear when I post the challenges, rather than assume that people know what the requirements are...:o)

    Now, let me go and pack up some of this cold weather and send it your way...LOL!

    Take care :o)

  13. OMG I can stay for ever just looking at the inspiration from the DT - absolutely gorgeous stuff!! Been stuck to doing colour challenges for such a long time that I really feel it's high time to venture out of that box and try something else. Love the sketches Nadia! xoxox
