*R* Thirsty Thursday

My favourite day of the week again as we continue our Thirsty Thursday challenge series with the letter R. Below we have listed some R prompts for you which you can take to kickstart your next papercrafting project. Incorporate one or more in a layout or card and share your creativity using the link at the end of this blog post for a chance to win a prize in our monthly draw.

R is for RE-DO - Do you ever go back and re-do your layouts? I know some people who do, others who resist and move on to another photo and story to tell. I do however sometimes rescrap the same photo (especially if I am very fond of it!) Here Karen Moss shows you a complete re-do of a layout, same journalling, same title, one of the same photos... why not rise to this challenge this week?

R is for RED - I wonder how often you use this vibrant and passionate colour on your projects? I should imagine with Valentines day around the corner quite a little more will be seen of it in coming weeks within the papercraft industry! Why not show us your RED projects this week.

R is for RUB-ONS - Be they alphabet rub-ons used in your journalling or layout title or maybe some of the lovely image, flowers/scrolls rub-ons available let's see how you incorporate them in your next design.

R is for ROMANCE -Is love in the air or is that a chill?! You may choose to scrapbook a lovely-dovey photo, or an anniversary/wedding/engagement photo for this weeks challenge, or you could make a card to tell someone you love them. Karen Cole's card from January gallery illustrates this challenge mixed with the RED challenge.

R is for REVIEW - Ann shared her year in review layout here on the blog last week using Simple Stories papers. Why not use this idea to create a review of your 2011 and meet this R challenge?

As always we would love to see how you interpret the challenges this week. If you'd like to be in with a chance to win a prize from the shop this month simply link your creations using our Inlinkz tool below, or leave us a lovely comment with a link to your page and which of the Rchallenges (one or more) that you have met with your creation. This challenge runs until middnight on February 1st 2012.


  1. Having done the LHS of a DLO which counted for P, here's the RHS as R for Red and Review - each of the circles pulls up to reveal a tag journalling the month's activities - my blog has details here.

  2. I went for Red - but some sneaky green crept in there too! Thanks for the challenge!
