One thing I've noticed about all of my pages in today's post is that I didn't use a whole lot of patterned papers. I tend to do that a lot. It kind of makes me kick myself a little for buying so much paper when a lot of the time I only use a little strip here or there.
I'm beginning to think that Christmas trees can be made with anything! On this page I used a diamond shaped foam stamp to create the tree. (I completely lifted this idea from my mom and after she reads this I'll never hear the end of it! We are always "competing" with our kit clubs.) After I had the diamonds stamped I added stitching and buttons to complete the design.
Now it's on to a new week and a new challenge!
The winner of the foam stamp and paint giveaway is Trishamaus2005. Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) your address. :)
Week #3 - Bare Chipboard
I probably have more chipboard than I do anything else. I actually do use it a lot so I don't feel so bad about having so much.
On this page the three smaller hearts, "MOM", "LOVE" and the heart with the flourish are all chipboard. On the "Love" piece I covered it with patterned paper and then on the rest I just added paint and added them to the layout. Nothing fancy and super easy. I also cut a piece of striped paper to go behind the heart with the flourish.
This week the giveaway is... you guessed it! Chipboard! (and a lot of it!) Scenic Route, Prima, BasicGrey, Bazzill and Fancy Pants.
I'm so glad to hear that so many of you are joining in on the page a day/use your stash challenge! I think the thing I love most about doing a page a day is that I don't waste time. I get in there and get it done!
