For the Motivation Monday, I posted a TRIPLE CHALLENGE! I noticed that when I create a page, I’ve fallen into the habit of using just one paper collection. For example, I might create a page that is almost ALL Cosmo Cricket. I might add some Primas, some Thickers, a few buttons, etc., but basically, I stick with the same manufacturer for the papers that I use. Why not? It’s easy! Everything matches! So, my primary challenge was to mix it up! I created a layout using paper from FIVE different manufacturers!! On my layout, I used K&Company Wild Saffron, Sassafras Lass, My Mind’s Eye, Basic Grey Recess, and The Boyfriend by Cosmo Cricket.
My second challenge was to use this fantastic sketch! Who doesn't love a Julie Bonner sketch!?! My third challenge was to use stitching on the layout. Whether it's machine stitching or hand stitching, I just wanted to use stitching! On my layout, I also added a couple of Primas and some Fancy Pants chipboard. The cork letters that I used for my title are by Creative Imaginations. The journaling sticker is by American Crafts. I thought this was a fun challenge! It was really fun for me to mix paper from different manufacturers!
I hope you had an awesome weekend. We have wet HEAVY snow outside . . . yuck! It's the worst kind to shovel! As always, thanks for stopping by!
