"I ♥ This" Digital Scrap Forum Challenge (FEB2021)

If you're reading this, then we did it! We got through January! LOL I just hope I'm not still congratulating us on our "big" accomplishments of getting through one month at a time by the end of this year... But if so, the bright side will be that we will have done that very thing. God is still on His throne, His ways are always perfect and He is good. That's enough for me. My hope is not in anything or anyone on this earth. (Col. 3:1-4, 1Cor. 15:19) How about you? 

During this month when we traditionally highlight the theme of love, I've created not one, but two collections. 💕 The first is entitled "Let There Be: Love." The colors of the designs are meant to be suitable for scrapping your love-themed pages that are not only related to romantic love, but also the warm, cozy love we feel for our families and dear friends. It also features some greens that bring so mind Spring and the hope that it promises. BUT, you'll have to wait until tomorrow when it releases to see the previews. I hope you'll come back then!

My second collection is called "With All My Heart." It has a fun, whimsical style, which I'll be showing you next week. For now, I'm just going to let you see this month's forum challenge prize preview for now. I'm afraid that I didn't include anything particularly whimsical in the challenge mini, unless you count the watercolor hearts - and the stripe paper blends to green/teal on the other side that's not in view, so that's fun. 

This month's prompt is to scrap a page about someone you love. It must be a person who actually exists (no stock photos) and that you know, even if they have passed on. So not your favorite celebrity or historical figure, but it's perfectly okay to do a memorial page about a loved one. And of course, you can include as many people (or pets) as you like in your layout. I have put the challenge prize in the store* for those who are simply not interested or just don't have time to do the challenge, but again, don't purchase it if you plan to do the challenge, okay?

*Please note that because the collection has not "gone live" yet, the challenge mini won't show up in your downloads right away if you purchase it now. :( So I would wait just a bit if you plan to buy it instead of doing the challenge to get it free.) I will update here when I'm sure that there won't be any download access issues - it should be no later than Feb. 8, but hopefully before then.

Lidia made this amazing layout using just the challenge mini add-on. Such talent! I love her black and white photos, don't you? So precious! She used a template by Cindy Schneider, in case you're interested in that. I think that it goes so well with the two papers that Lidia used to fill the hearts (by clipping them to the shapes included in the template).

I made this page for the challenge, using a small portion of the prize mini:

I hope you'll join us for this month's challenge in the forum, and I hope to see you back here tomorrow for the release of my first collection for the month of February. There will be another first, too, but you'll have to tune in Tuesday to find out what it is... See you then!


  1. What a gorgeous mini! I'll definitely give this month's challenge a might take a day or two because I'm still limiting my time at the computer (the bad patch of Shingles is under my arm, which makes typing "interesting") Thank you for your generosity!

    1. I'm so glad that you're on the mend, and will keep you in my prayers that this whole unpleasant experience will be behind you SOON!


Thanks for visiting. I would love to hear from you!
