Hello! Darlene, Studio4 Designworks, here for the January Less is More challenge. This month for the LESS IS MORE CHALLENGE, I present.


I hope you had a most wonderful holiday season and are welcoming the new year ­ 2016. Whaatt?? Where the heck did that year go? I wish for you all that the new year brings all the joys and happiness that you can handle. We are still experiencing problems in our Forum, so we are posting our January Challenges on our blog.

Everything else will remain the same as far as posting your layouts in the gallery, so please carry on and enjoy the challenge and when we get the Forum straightened out, we can post our layouts as usual. Thank you all for your patience, I for one would be pulling my hair out if I had to deal with the software developers to get this all sorted out!

This month, I’m still keeping somewhat of a holiday theme. I’m sure you’ve got some fresh photos of the holiday season we just all enjoyed or the new year we’ve just rung in? But that doesn’t limit you to what you’d like to scrap. I offer up JOYOUS MOMENTS for you to play with this month. You can download the kit HERE.

Most of you know how this challenge works, but for any newcomers ­ the premise of this challenge is to download this kit and create a LO using ALL of the elements and papers of the kit, leaving nothing out.

I have noticed that some layouts don’t contain everything, and some kits may be hard to using everything in your layout, but that is the challenge ­ testing you’re creativity! Feel free to use your imagination and clip papers, recolour elements or papers. You can add journaling text or a title, but nothing more. You can duplicate items and use them over again, or clip to shapes that come native to your program. Be creative! And as always, most important ­ have FUN!

Please post links to your layouts to the LESS IS MORE gallery or in the comments per the January Challenges at the Studio post. We all love to see what you’ve created! Now let’s get scrapping!
