Challenge #3 is about knowing what kind of scrapper you are and doing the opposite. For example, if you are a simplistic scrapper do the opposite and make your page busy and extensive.....but, if you're a scrapper that does busy page then do one more simplistic. For me, the majority of my pages are quite busy so my challenge is to make a more simplistic back to basics type of page. There aren't any sketches to follow or layouts to lift....it's all about you.

This is a great challenge, Jess, and definitely a "true" challenge. I have a hard time with "white" space, b&w pages, bling, all kinds of things to try here.

Good Challenge, I guess I'll go dig out some old stickers. I never use them anymore

This is opposite because I very rarely do just one picture on a page and I used a Page Maps sketch and I was just saying the other day that I never use them! Also I never use the big patterns like the top one here!

Don't you pretty much always do sketches? Maybe not using a sketch would be opposite?

Great page, Janessa!

Nicole, not using a sketch is a good idea. Also, you rarely make embellishments with the cricut, so for this challenge you can do that or with the Cricut Craft Room. Or banners, you don't really like those. Or stitch by hand, anything you don't typically do. Just have fun doing something you don't tend to do when scrapping.

Here's my layout for this challenge.

I used brown paper that I never used as a base, I also don't tend to do much with polka dots either. Plus I crossed the crack, and even pulled out some chipboard. I haven't used chipboard in years. A fun challenge to do.

Janessa - Great page! The large print paper looks great on that layout!

Becky - Great layout! The paper combo looks great!

I'm still thinking on this one....not sure what my opposite is yet. Maybe I'll overlap some pictures or put something on a tilt. Those are things I don't do much.

I am really proud of this one, I can really scrap on my own and it didn't take too much longer than a sketched inspired page either. But I did have a lot of thought put into it before i sat down to scrap.


Crop challenge three: a true challenge: No sketch
The years are short
