Default Think Outside The Box - May 4th





Sweet Shoppers, a brand new month is here and I am so excited to share this week's challenge with you because it's super simple and straightforward and is perfect for iNSD weekend! If you're new to SSD, you don't have to dig too deep, but if you've been around awhile, I challenge you to really go back in time to find something you always wanted to scrap with, but just never got around to!

As usual, you'll need to scrap a layout for this challenge and post in this thread by midnight EST on May 10th, 2014 for your chance to win your choice of a kit from our Featured Designer Erica Zanes' shoppe!

Don't forget, even if you miss the deadline for this week's Featured Designer giveaway, you can still earn Sweet Rewards for completing all of this month's TOTB challenges too and posting in our Sweet Rewards tracker thread for the month! Coupons are automatically sent to everyone who completes an entire month of challenges, so don't forget to track your completed challenges each month so you don't miss those sweet discounts in the shoppe!

Before I go, I'm proud to announce our TOTB winner for last week's awesome challenge...



Congrats Jess, you can check out this thread for details on how to claim your prize!

Thanks so much for playing along with us week after week, we can't wait to see what you create this week!

Robin

I'm fairly new here so I don't have any super old stuff. But, I bought this kit a few weeks ago and haven't had a chance to use it yet (except for a few of the elements on my PL pages). I believe this is an older kit because its in the bargain section now.

I bought Sweet Summertime last summer in June. Never used it. I bought Stormy Weather back in March specifically for these photos. Still never used it. It is about time I put them to use!

I bought this beautiful kit, Sentimental Journey, back in August 2012, but never got a page done. It's so nice to do a page with in now.

I'm not 'old' enough to go too far back, but this is one of the first kits I purchased here at SSD. I made a few pages with it when I bought it, but none that are gallery worthy now! I think I've come a long ways! Ha! Here is my layout with KCB's Tenderhearted:

Use one of your oldest SSD kits it's okay if you used it - it's still something in your stash

This was fun - I found some old goodies from 2010 and 2011... all in the old SSD packaging!

Ooh, thanks for the free kit!

Template is 2009 Cindy Schneider.
Kit is 2012 Jenn Barrette. The funny thing is, I remember buying this kit thinking I wanted to go apple picking. We finally went in 2013,now I'm scrapping it in 2014.

Does it have to be all Sweet Shoppe on the page? I'm very new here, and have a few templates. Can I use other kits, or should I wait until I have Sweet Shoppe kits?

We do require that you use exclusively Sweet Shoppe product since there are only 4 challenges a month. That said we have a bunch of freebies in the shoppe which you are welcome to use for your challenge layouts!

So glad to have you joining us!

Here's mine.
I had to dig deep to find a kit I had never used before. Almost every kit I bought, I have used.

I haven't scrapped in two yrs until this week <3 Many of my pages yesterday and today have been using my stash as I've still bought a kit here and there hoping to use them even though I didn't scrap for 2 yrs, and for 2 yrs before that I only did a handful of layouts. Here's the layout I decided to submit for this challenge... Using KCB and Krystal's Eat Cake collab from a while ago <3

No Idea when I bought this kit. But I've had that acrylic alpha from real early. I still love those big letters!

I picked this kit up last August, and it's been at the top of my "must use" list, but I never seem to have the right pictures. Even though I've used it, it's still at the top of my list! Erica & Nicole are a great team.
