Challenge #1

Welcome to the first of our weekly challenges!

These will go live every Saturday evening, and the idea is that they will provide you with inspiration, challenge you to try something different (or perhaps re-visit something you haven't tried for a while) and perhaps take you out of your comfort zone a little! We'd also like to see what you come up with, so leave a comment on the challenge posts with a link to your creation on your blog/online gallery.

This weeks challenge is to create a Layout using just patterned paper and ribbon - and nothing else. No cardstock, brads, eyelets, buttons, chipboard shapes or any other type of embellishment. You can use tools such as punches and diecutting machines.

This Layout is a little idea to get you started. I used the HOTP vintage sarapapers and Cardmaker's Pretty ribbons. The title was cut with Ellison "twang" alphabet and the "&" was cut using the new HOTP Thinga-Ma-Jig template.

So, get out your papers and ribbons and get creative, and make sure you leave a comment on this post with a link to your creation.

Can't wait to see what you come up with - have fun!

Just to say, you can still join in if you don't have a blog or gallery - just send your entry by e-mail & we'll add it to our new challenge gallery! What are you waiting for - go play!

Is inking allowed, I think I can see some on the LO!??
Fab challenge, definately going to give this one a go!

As far as I'm concerned ink counts as a tool LOL - so unless looby says otherwise, I reckon it must be OK

Looby said...

Inking is fine - don't think I could ever complete a LO without inking! LOL

Roo said...

Thanks for a great challenge, really enjoyed it!!

Looby said...

Great LO Roo - thanks for taking part!

Beverley Todd said...
