Challenge Thursday - 6/23/11

Hey, Trixie fans, it's Thursday, so you know what that means....time for another challenge!! This week I wanted to do a template challenge, but this is no ordinary template challenge. How many of you buy templates (or find the freebies) and only use that template one time?? I know many of us do, but you can really increase the value of your template stash if you would just be a little creative. Do not always only look at your template the way it was designed. Try flipping it 90 or 180 degrees, or do a mirror flip. It is amazing how different a template will look by doing this, and better yet, you get more pages out of just one template!!

So, my challenge for you today is to take a template, flip the template, and complete a new layout with a totally different look! You can use a Trixie Scraps template you already have on hand, or you can use the awesome template below that was generously donated by one of our Stars, Bethie. Simple right??

I do this a lot especially with my P365 templates since you cannot seem to find a lot of templates with 7 photos:)

For these layouts I used one of the templates in Trixie's Through the Week Vol 5 http://www.gottapixel.net/store/product.php?productid=32684&cat=0&page=1

Here is Week 4. I used Trixie's Croaky Kisses Kit http://www.gottapixel.net/store/product.php?productid=32407&cat=0&page=1



For Week 10, I mirror flipped the template. I used Trixie's My Sister, My Friend kit http://www.gottapixel.net/store/product.php?productid=33424&cat=0&page=1



Now, I know you are dying to see the freebie template that Bethie provided for us, so wait no more. Check this out!!!!
