December 2-4-6-8 challenge - updated with WINNERS

Post by Sandi0805 »

Happy New Year everyone.   I am so glad 2021 is behind us.  The layouts submitted this month were amazing.  Loved all of them.  I've decided to give two gift cards this month from all the entries.  The winners of the gift cards are:  Scrapqueen141 and CynthiaB.  Congrats ladies.  I will order your gift cards today.

I can't believe that it is December, the last month of the year.  Time is really flying by.    The season has changed with shorter days and colder weather.  

This was one of my favorite challenges back in 2011.  Each month I will alternate between odd and even numbers to mix it up some.  This month will be even numbers.  Hope you like it as much as I did.  

PLEASE READ THE RULES:  Some of the layouts being submitted may not have understood the rules.  If you have questions, please ask on this thread or send me a pm. 

For this challenge you will need to use 2 of something, 4 of something, 6 of something and 8 of something.  These have to be exact.  (Ex:  You cannot have 5 enamel dots and say that is for 4 enamel dots).  Some of the things that will not count for example are  # of people in a photo or # of pages in a layout and # of petals on a flower.   Again, if not sure what might count ask.  I have had many ask me in prior months if something would or would not be acceptable.  I'm pretty flexible in that aspect.  You are allowed to have other items on your page, but only after you have met the 2-4-6-8 requirements.

examples of items you could use are:

   2 word title
   4 photos
   6 patterned papers
   8 enamel dots

Here's a layout that I did in May 2019 of our trip to the Swiss Alps.

Image
I used   the following:
   
    2 frames (red and blue with pictures on right page)
    4 banners (on corner of left page with word snow on them)
    6 pattern papers
    8 chipboard snowflakes (1 each on the frames & 6 scattered on the pattern paper strips)

Bonus entries:
 
1.  Since it is still FALL with Winter close by, you will get a bonus entry for the following:  a Thanksgiving themed layout or any type of Winter themed layout such as visits to see Santa, Christmas shopping, Christmas festivals or even Christmas Day.
2.  Scraplift any of my layouts (does not have to be the examples) and you will get an extra entry.  (Must post the layout you lift).

Rules:  

Solid background paper and photo mats are freebies.
You may use other items as long as the above requirements are met.
New layouts only and can be either a 1 or 2 page layout.  
Can be combined with any challenge that allows combining.
Multiple entries allowed.
Must post to this thread by 12/31/21.
If you have any questions, either post your questions here in this thread or send me a pm.
 
Have fun and can't wait to see what everyone creates.
