Challenge Page


Up for a challenge today?  Here's what you'll need to make this page:

One 12x12 sheet of white cardstock.

One 12x12 sheet of really busy printed paper....I used Sassafraslass because I love it.

One 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of white cardstock & one 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of coordinating cardstock (mine is green).

A pack or 2 of coordinating embellishments that you've been dying to use.

Your usual scrapbooking stuff:  paper trimmer, adhesive,
journling pen, a large corner rounder (mines from EK Success), foam
dots/squares, chipboard/stickers/die cuts for your title).  And no
matter what size the square punch says in the photo, I used a 1 3/8 EK
Sucess square punch.


Ok.  Here goes:

1.  Round the corners of the 12x12 white cardstock and round
only the upper left corner of your photo.  Cut a 2 x 9 inch strip
of the smaller white cardstock.  Round the bottom two edges
(along one long side).  Put that piece aside, it's your
journaling block.

2.  Using the 1 3/8 inch square punch, punch out 6 square from
the really wild 12x12 pattern paper you picked.  Then cut a 1 1/2 x
3 inch strip of that same paper.  The Sassafraslass paper has a
cool edge on the bar code strip...that's what I used for my 1 1/2 x 6
inch strip down the right side...go ahead & cut that strip, too.

3.  Position all your pieces on your paper...we're not gluing
here...just checking to see positioning & to see if the edges need
to be inked...only you can be the judge of that.


4.  Happy with how it looks?  Go ahead & glue down all
the pieces except the journaling block & embellishments.

5.  Now position your journaling block & embellishments on
the page.  With a pencil, make a tic mark at the edges of the
embellishment that overlap the journaling block.  That way you
won't write into the embellishment.  Go ahead & journal....I
dare you.

6.Adhere your journaling block.  When I added my embellishments, I used foam squares under them to give them dimension:



Pretty cool, don't you think?  Email me yours & I'll post
them.  I love to see your take on the same fun!
