Project 12 challenge - two challenges, one spot

It's January 2010, which means it's the final month of the 2009 Project 12 challenge, and the first month of the 2010 challenge.

This will be the last time I use this banner:



And each month I will now be using this banner:

It is a unique month because of these two events, so there are two challenges in one place this month, which means you will potentially get twice as much done, which will also means twice as many opportunities to win the prize.

The First challenge:

Scrap your month. Whether you use 1 photo, 100 photos, or no photos, highlight a month in your life. If I was up to date, I'd be doing a layout about what my family did in December 2009. After you have finished your layout, link it to this thread.

The Second challenge:

As you know, Becky Fleck has designed some wonderful sketches as an option to use for the 2010 Project 12 challenge that I am hosting on the SCT blog (Here's my Project 12 launch post, with some previous examples and Becky's first sketch). Because they are two pagers, they leave a blank spot at the beginning of the year, so the second challenge is to create a title page, or a page opener to your 2010 album.

You could... do a page with your 2010 goals, just like the current blog challenge on the Studio Calico blog (and there's a prize up for grabs there too, if you are quick).
You could do a layout about what you did on 1/1, or what your kids look like on 1/1.
You could do something REALLY simple and just have a piece of cardstock with 2010 on it. Really. The title page to your 2010 album is up to you.

The deadline to participate is midnight PST on January 20. After that I will draw a name for a winner of a little prize.

I was thinking about what to put up as a prize for this month. In recent months I've been doing stamps, the Studio Calico month stamps in particular, but I decided to mix it up this month, and celebrate scrapbooking and a product I really adore.

The January kit from Studio Calico had some Basic Grey Origins in it, and I am IN. LOVE. In love with Basic Grey in a way that I haven't been for a while. I thought what better way to sum up 2009 and welcome 2010 than by celebrating paper crafting with product that I adore?

So. If you are interested in playing along, this is the prize up for grabs:

Photobucket

A delicious Collection Pack from Basic Grey. Yum. EEE. You will want two of them, because both A and B sides of these papers are just gorgeous.

There you have it! I'll see you back here on the 20th. Be sure to check this thread to see what others are doing with this challenge.

Happy New Year!

  6. This is just the type of project I had envisioned doing this year after doing a 52 blessings weekly book last year. Love that there will be sketches for inspiration as well. I have 1 question though....If I choose to submit any of my monthly pages do they have to be created based on the sketch supplied for that month?

    I am totally in love with this Project 12 concept -- which is new to me but I stumbled across it on the S&CT blog. I finished my layouts for the sketch over there, and thought I was supposed to link them here too... I see from your post that you have two other, different challenges going on, though. So, I'm confused about the actual protocol but no matter! Capturing and documenting the memories is what I'm really after! ;) Anyway, I don't know if my S&CT layouts "count" for any Project 12 drawings, but please enjoy anyway... And now I'll see if I can get to work on your challenges too! THANKS!

  23. I just discovered this project through another scrapper at the LOAD challenge. Figured I'd get involved with both challenges -- the more I scrap, the better!
