May Challenge #1 - Different Size


Well-Known Member

All members that participate, can everyone PLEASE ensure that you read all the rules for this challenge
so that you can claim your challenge points. Thank you!

Are you looking to add some excitement and new dimensions to your scrapbooking projects? Then I have a challenge for you - why not try scrapping on an A4 sized page instead of the traditional larger square pages? ( letter - sized is also okay, since this format is more common in some parts of the World)

As someone who does a lot of journaling, I find that the rectangular shape of an A4 page allows me to express my thoughts and emotions in a more natural and visually appealing way. It's also a great way to include one or more photos and memorabilia while still keeping the page looking balanced and organized.

And let's not forget about the practical advantages of using an A4 page. Printed A4 sized books are easier to store on bookshelves and for fans of hybrid scrapbooking - are more readily available in stores.

Don't be afraid to experiment with different layouts and designs when creating your A4 sized pages. You may find that the different size allows you to explore new creative possibilities that you never thought were possible.

Can't wait to see what you create!

Here is my sample page. I opted for an (art) journaling page, since I really love to put my thoughts on paper.



- Create an A4 sized page, this can be anything from an art journal page to a traditional layout with one or more pictures. ( letter - sized is also okay, since this format is more common in some parts of the World)
- Please use 80% Oscraps products that are currently in the store.
- Non-Oscraps products or retired O designer products can be used whether the designer is selling elsewhere or not.
- You need to credit all the products used on your layout.
- Your layout can not be used for more than one challenge.
- Your page must be posted in the Challenge 1 gallery by midnight PST May 31 2023 and linked back to this thread (see below on how to add your linked layout).
- And do not forget to update the CURRENT MONTH'S TRACKING THREAD to be eligible for your coupon.

Adding a linked layout from the Gallery to a thread:
1. Upload your layout to the gallery first. In your forum post click the Gallery Embed icon (little camera).
2. This will open your gallery, simply click on the layout you require, then scroll down to the bottom of the screen and click the Continue button.
3. Your linked layout is now in your post, the image will appear once you have clicked the Post Reply button.

What an interesting idea! I once heard a designer say they prefer rectangular to square because of the unequal sides and how they add tension and dynamics to the page... I'll definitely make a page!

Not much challenge for me because my whole book for many years is A4. But for this challenge, I tried to emphasize the notebook style in my pages by contrasting colors. Thank you for this challenge, which I sort of turned into a new challenge for myself. :D
