Getting Creative With Cardstock!

Good morning everyone! It's our favorite time of the week again... time for our weekly challenge here at Paper Posies. :)

I want you to think about your Paper Posies kits.... what makes them so great? Why do we look forward to that box every month? For me, it's the variety of patterned paper that goes together so well, and the double alphabets - LOVE those... and the ribbons and assorted embellies...mmmm, so fun to see how it'll all work together! But wait! There's another thing about these kits that I absolutely adore! It's the great assortment of CARDSTOCK in each kit! Right?

So, my challenge for you this week is this:

Look through your stash of Paper Posies kits (no matter how big or how small that may be). Pull out the cardstock! Use that cardstock to create a layout. For this challenge only ONE piece of patterned paper is allowed, but feel free to use as many different pieces of cardstock that you want - and whatever embellies you want.

For my sample layout I used the June 2010 kit. Yup, only one piece of patterned paper was used in this layout, but I was sneaky and used both sides of the paper. ;) I found that using border punches helped give the layout some extra texture and pattern... and adding some shapes and a few accents helped pull it all together too.



So, get busy, create with cardstock (and only ONE piece of patterned paper) and link or post your creations in the challenge thread in the PP forum by next Sunday night, Sept 19th at 11:59 pm. Remember, for every challenge you participate in, you'll get your name entered to win a super fabulous Paper Posies Prize!
