Also, watch upcoming posts for details about our We Love Our Member Contest, which is fast approaching!
The TS design team each host a challenge each month! There are always fun things going on at the Forums. Not only are they a great place to find inspiration, but some challenges offer prizes too! Just jump right on in, create a layout, upload it to the Treasured Scrapbooking Gallery and link your project in the appropriate challenge thread! This month the following challenges are going on right now!

Morag’s Scrap Outside The Box Challenge!It's easy to stay within your comfort zone when scrapping, so for this challenge, you'll need to try out something different on a layout. It doesn't have to be wacky or wild, just something you wouldn't normally try.

Carole’s 10 in 2010 ChallengeTo welcome in a new decade my challenge for you is to create a layout that includes ten of something. It can be ten photos, buttons, tags, flowers, ribbon, etc., whatever your heart desires or you have a ton of and need to use up For my example I used ten different red and white ribbons covering the hearts on my layout. It may not look like it in the photo, but trust me, there are ten different ribbons there. Have fun, can't wait what everyone comes up with!

Eva’s Bird ChallengeIn looking through January holidays, I found that January 5th is a National Birds day, so I bring you my January challenge, which is to create a card, layout or any kind of a project with birds on it. How easy is that???? I created a card with birds on it as an inspiration. Hope you enjoy it.

Julie's White Sale Challenge
This time of year its all about the commercials on TV, LOL, seriously where do they come up with all of this stuff?! Gold coins, Nutrisystem, exercise, sales ect.
I decided to focus on the White Sale that is popular during this time of the year and thats what I based my challenge on.

Its super easy and is very striking, what you ask?

Create a layout with.........what else, A WHITE BACKGROUND!!!

Ginger’s Opposite Lift Challenge
January 24th is Opposites Day, so in honor of this special day ( ) I would like to challenge you to lift a fellow TS scrapper, then take their layout and do the opposite! For example, I lifted the very talented Daisymeh (Megan) and switched it up. I flipped it over and used opposite ends, then used cardstock where she used patterned paper, and used pp where she used cardstock. I used a landscape photo where she used a portrait photo. You can make this as easy or as complicated as you would like -- just try to do the "opposite."

Jenni’s Favorite 2009 Photo(s) challenge
My challenge to you this month is to find a few favorites and scrap them!!! I have loved looking through my 2009 photos and decided it would be fun to put together a summary page of all my favorites. Here's what I came up with:

Elizabeth’s January Home Challenge
Because we have a new home {well it was built in March and we've been in it ever since! This is our very first home} I thought what better way to ring in the New Year by doing a challenge about our homes.

What does "home" mean to you? Share with us about your home in a layout about just what that means for you!

Lisa’s 2010 “Focus” Challenge
I am very bad about doing me pages so I thought I would do a challenge that requires us to make a "me" page. I am not big on resolutions, but prefer to identify things I want to focus on. So I challenge you to do a page on something you want to focus on in 2010.

I want to be more mindful of the gifts God gives us. My focus page is a reminder of that.

So come on - Jump right in - We cannot wait to see what you create!!

Firstly, let me introduce myself, my name is Morag and I'm so thrilled to have joined the lovely team here at Treasured Scrapbooking. 

This month's January Resolutions kit is packed full of patterned papers and embellishments including my favourite subject - tiny houses.

One of my favourite things to do is create a frame for my favourite photos.  Quirky shapes and gorgeous papers make much more interesting adornments than boring rectangular frames! 

We've had an unusually large amount of snow here in the UK so we've been making the most of it.  I managed to catch the kids on the sledge together (a rare thing indeed).

I've cut out a simple house shape from chipboard which is then topped with those wonderful patterned papers to create hills.  Notice the ric-rac behind the hills?

How about these cute houses?  Who can resist?

Finally, I finished off with the fabulous label and prima flowers all included in the kit.  I added my own frosting in the middle of the flowers - I'll show you how in this month's newsletter.

Don't forget to check out the gallery for this month's inspiration - you'll be amazed at the variety of beautiful projects.

Thanks for stopping by.

When I opened the January kit I was simply amazed!
Not only was it so much fun to go through, but I realized that this
is a kit that keeps on keepin' on!!!
This kit is JAMMED packed FULL of GOODIES!!!
I was looking through it and realized that I could easily make about 8 projects
using this kit, and to me that's a kit that keeps on truckin'!

I created this layout when I realized that I was to do a blog post this month.
That was after I created 4 other layouts and 4 cards!!! I just pulled out the rest of my
kit and went to town! See what I mean, jammed packed!!!

These are some of my favorite colors to work with so I knew instantly what I wanted
to create with this!

I took these photos one morning while A was on her winter
vacation. The lighting reminded me so much of the sun that I wanted to incorporate that
in my layout somehow!! And I did just that!

If you get the kit, you are going to be amazed!!!
If you don't, hurry up and get it to see what I mean because it's HUGE!!

The January "Resolutions" kit is such a fun kit. The DT has done an amazing job with it -- it is so versatile! I added some cardstock from the add-on package and came up with these pages:

Come check out our gallery and see what the rest of the DT has done with this awesome kit!
At Treasured Scrapbooking!!!

Hope you will join us!!

It's a Resolutions Crop at Treasured Scrapbooking!!!
Jan 7 2010 through Jan 10 2010

It's a new year and a time to reflect on the past year and plan for the new year. Not everyone makes resolutions every year but most everyone has some thoughts about things they would like to accomplish, things they might want to make a better effort at and things they might want to change, and usually the beginning of each new year is a time when these thoughts come to mind. So we, at Treasured Scrapbooking, are going to go with the flow, and hope that you will join us for the ride! So whether you make resolutions, steer yourself towards a focus or create an Ideal Scene for yourself, we will have challenges for you to complete that will allow you to get them down on paper...and glue, and embellishments, and....well you get the idea :)

Each Design Team member has chosen a resolution of sorts to work on and some of the ideas you will see have something to do with:

Weight Loss
Go Green
Quality Time

You will love the way the Design Team has interpreted the themes above! And as if completing new challenges and new pages or cards isn't enough, there will be prizes too!!!

I know you are intrigued, so mark your calendars, add it to your list of things to do, and get yourself on over to Treasured Scrapbooking on January 7th to join in on the fun!

Where: Treasured Scrapbooking
When: January 7 to 10th, 2010

What to bring: Yourself and your supplies :)

Hope to see you there!
