SPRING CROP 2012 - CHALLENGE 14 - ANTS ON A LOG

Postby MandyK » Apr 28th, '12, 5:59 pm

no this isn't a snack break so don't run to get the celery and peanut butter this is a recipe challenge for your layout.

The Layout Recipe
Log: Use Textured cardstock at least 2 times on your page

Peanut Butter
: Unlike the sticky peanut butter you add to the celery here you'll use no adhesive on your layout. Say what? This will be tricky but fun and challenging and I promise it can be done think sewing, staples, pins, brads etc.

Ants: 3 different types of embellishments and remember no adhesive unless it’s an already adhered embellishment. again think buttons can be stitched, chipboard can be stitched or stapled, pin that doily etc.

You also get 2 freebies:
Your title can be anything you want and you can adhere it. Only your title though
Pattern paper use as much of as little as you want but remember NO adhesive for any of it!
It can be done just have fun!

Here is the layout I created for the challenge: LOTS of stitching both machine and by hand.

Here is Alissa's fab layout

All Entries must be new creations to be eligible for the prize. Make sure you upload your creation to the Cocoa Daisy Gallery with ANTS ON A LOG CHALLENGE 14 in the title. After you have uploaded your project, please link your creation to this Challenge thread, so we know you've completed the challenge.

You have until MAY 6TH, 8pm Eastern to complete the challenges you wish to participate in. Challenge Winners will be announced later that week!

What an awesome challenge - really pushing me outside my comfort zone. I do love old school eyelets though, so I might have to dust off my eyelet setter.

This was a challenge in my style. I've used staples, brads, the sewingmachine, eylets, a paperclip and a pin. It was so fun! And here is the LO:
