I’m also using this layout for a challenge at Scrap for Help. They are a great blog and organization that raise money for a great cause. If you have time just pop on by their website to check it out. Their challenge this month was “Children”. The theme could be anything related to children and of course to use scrap material. For this layout I used 2 different Prima packaging as scraps. I made 2 tags out of the green cardboard packaging and I cut out the plastic doilies from another package as an embellishment between papers. The Prima packaging are so versatile and are meant to be used for your projects if you wish to do so. Finally I used some old tulle fabric that I found to make the green flower. Yes you saw right I made, no actually I sew, that flower out of scratch. I can’t even believe it my self but it is true. It is so easy to make is you have the right tools. This past Friday, I went to Scrapfest. Its a Canadian based scrapbooking market and crop. One of the make-and-takes was to make this flower. A very talented lady called Karen Ellis (check out her blog) showed us how to make it. The trick is to used these templates to make the flower and its as if you are sewing by number. Below is a picture of how the template looks like. (I will try to make a tutorial next time to show you how easy it is). At the end I glued a metal trinket on top as decoration. I’m quite excited on how it turned out.
I’m also using this layout for a Challenge me Happy creative challenge #9. This months challenge was to make your own embellishments. I made my own flower and I also embellished the chipboard with paint and stamps to give it that look. I used green paint and then stamped black flourishes on top.
Finally I’m also using this layout for a new Challenge blog I found called Stuff 2 Scrap . The challenge was a 4,3,2,1 Challenge!
You had to use:
4 different pattern papers
1 chipboard piece preferably from Stuff 2 Scrap (however I didn’t have any so I used Dusty Attic)
I do feel I met all the requirements for this layout. (and then some)
