July 2011 Kit

This month's challenge is hosted by Theresa, and it is called Chopped 3-2-1 (inspired by the Food Network).

The rules are as follows. You must create at least one project (e.g., a card or layout), in which you use items from three separate groupings.

(1) Use three pages from the calendar supplied (which should make up at least 25% of the visible space).

(2) Use at least two separate elements from "2" bag consisting of rub-ons, tag book and ribbon.

(3) Use at least one piece from the embellishment bag, consisting of metal items and office supplies.

Good luck!

Tammy's July Results

Finally, I am caught up! I absolutely loved this calendar paper. I was really concerned about meeting all of the elements of the challenge and was only able to make one card that fit in the "rules" but the paper was so gorgeous I had to keep playing. There are still so many things I want to do with this paper!

Here are all of the cards. The one in the back right is the "challenge" card. The rest were for fun.

Here is the challenge card...sideways...sorry!

And the others with the beautiful papers...

Tammy's June Results

I was really nervous about this challenge. I didn't think I would be able to come up with anything using those stickers. Theresa and Rachel were over at my house and once we actually started coming up with some ideas on how to sneakily use the stickers our creative juices took over. I was actually proud of all of our results sitting on my window ledge. Here is a view of all three:

And here is the one that will actually load upright. This one is my favorite. I used patterned paper for the present ribbons and then hid a sticker present in the back :)

Thanks for the challenge!

Tammy's May Results

First off, I am SO sorry that these are 2 months late. I have no excuse since I have had my May and June projects finished since April. Well, better late than never. As I have said before, I am a card maker but I did make a layout for once :)

I love the colors of the kit. Makes me home sick for Florida and the Emerald waters of the Gulf Coast. Here is an individual shot of each:

Sorry for the sideways pic...I'm having issues/flashbacks from April's post! I even tried to re-save but it won't load upright.

Rachel's July Results

Here is my project for this month's challenge:

The front contains three pieces of paper from the calendar supplied by Theresa as part of the gorgeous (!) kit she put together. I die cut the piece with the butterfly and glued it onto the purple tag (which I trimmed to fit). I used a stamp to make it look like a cancelled postage stamp.

Here is a peek at the inside of the card:

I wish I could say that no rub-ons were harmed in the making of this card, but that would be untrue. You would think after the first few times of accidentally placing rub-ons on the plastic packaging one would learn, but...maybe someday.
