August Challenge #2!

One thing we LOVE about having guest designers is inviting them come up with a fun challenge for all of you. We are so excited to bring you another challenge this month - this one from one of our August Guest Designers, Amy Wheeler:

There were soooo many great patterns in the August kit it was hard to decide which side of each paper to use and even harder to narrow down the options for a layout. My challenge this month is to use 5 or more patterned papers on your layout. I used seven on my layout "Hey Cupcake(s)" and can't wait to see what your take is on this challenge.

Happy scrappin'!

Amy

August Challenge

Hello Paper Posies friends! We took a little time off during the summer with challenges, but we're back this month with something fun for you. ;) Hopefully you all are receiving your amazing August kits about now packed full with Basic Grey goodness! If not, they'll be arriving any day now. Woohoo!

I'm a huge fan of using sketches when I scrapbook, so I thought it would be fun to do a sketch challenge this month. Liz Chedester has a fun sketch site, called The Scrappiest that I enjoy following and she agreed to let us use one of her fabulous sketches this month! I chose Sketch 127:


I presented it to the DT last month, including our two guest designers, Amy and Lisa and here's our takes on the sketch, using the August '11 Paper Posies kit:

From me:



Isn't it fun to see how everyone interprets a sketch? I love how every one is different, whether they've flipped it, turned it or adjusted it for their photos.

So, you challenge is to use this sketch! Post it or link us to your take on this challenge on the challenge thread on the MB and you'll have a chance to win a fun Paper Posies prize! You have one month - until September 9th. :)

I can't wait to see YOUR take on the sketch! Have fun!

August Kit Altered Project

Hi Everyone!!!! If you haven’t purchased the New Paper Posies August Kit yet here’s another reason: THE ALTERED PROJECT is amazing!!!!
Here’s is a sample of what I did with the Maya Road Chipboard Canvas Book.



Couple tid bits about the book.
 I used Ink spray on the canvas and what is great is the canvas comes off the chipboard … it’s a BOOK COVER!!! The embellishments and paper stick great on the canvas using glue dots, stitching, or staples. You can add as much as want to this book. As you can see I included a map and postcards from my travels. Hope you were inspired today!!!
