April Colour Challenge

Hi everyone! Amy Prior here and this month I wanted to shake it up a bit and offer a Colour Challenge for you all instead of our regular sketch challenges. Below you will see a beautiful palette from www.seeds.com and for this challenge, you are required to create a layout or card using the colours from this palette only! You can add some neutral colouring like white, black & kraft but we should be able to see all these beautiful colours in your project.


As per usual there is the opportunity to win 1 of 3 fabulous A2Z Scraplets Goody Packs and you have to be in it to win it! Over the next couple of days a linky widget will be added here on the right hand side of our blog. Be sure to add your link to your layout there. 

Since bringing the fabulous A2Z Scraplets blog over from Typepad to Blogger, we have had a drastic drop in Challenge entries and this unfortunately means that these challenges may soon end if there is no longer an interest in them. Because I need your help to get this party started once again, I have on offer an AMAZING pack of brand new A2Z Scraplets valued at over $25 to send out to one lucky blog follower and it is so easy to enter! YES this is on top of the fabulous challenge prizes up for grabs! To enter in my super awesome personal giveaway that Julie doesn't even know about so shhhhh LOL all you have to do is spread the love! I want you all to spread the A2Z Scraplets love far and wide to all your Scrappy Friends and make sure that they comment here on this blog saying that YOU sent them here. They will also need to become a follower for the entry to be legitimate and if we get lots and lots of new love I might just think about a second personal giveaway! You will have the entire month of April for this and be sure to let your friends know that of course they can enter too! Of course you are also welcome to head on over to my personal blog and become a follower there for an extra chance to win! Click here.

Okie Dokie ladies and gents, after all that excitement, I of course have a tonne of inspiration here for you all from our always amazing Design Team here at A2Z Scraplets. 

Amy Prior (meeeeeee)

Until next time...happy scrapping!

  6. HI! I've become a follower, and will be participating shortly... Just a quick question, do we need to use A2Z scraplets in our creation?

    1. No Jess, A2Z Scraplets are not a requirement. They are great if you can use them but we would love you to enter with or without them :)
