Sweet Thing – dt layout for Paper Secrets and Helmar Challenge entry

I love to combine my dt work with challenges (or just combine challenges) when I can, so when Helmar posted a gorgeous sketch by Lydell Quin for their Feb/March challenge and Nicolle said she would be hosting the Paper Secrets March Technique challenge (using punches), I thought they’d go together perfectly! 😀 Though it didn’t turn out the way I originally had in mind, this combo certainly did get me using my punches! 😀

Simply Beautiful – Layout and Card for Paper Secrets Challenges

Paper Secrets has 2 progressive challenges that I’m participating in one is a layout challenge (we’re on week 4) and the other is a card challenge (we’re on week 3).

I chose lace/trim, staples, shape punches, 3+ flowers, and distressing (ink splatters).

Happy Beauty – Layout for Paper Secrets

I actually started out creating this layout for the Little Yellow Bicycle sketch challenge, but then decided it was better suited for the SYAO sketch #3 at Paper Secrets instead, so to make it work for me, I flipped the sketch. The items from the list that I used for this layout are 3+ flowers, 3+ buttons, 3+ photo corners and twine. The technique I selected was stitching (I hand stitched using the twine). Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:LYB Clothesline pp
LYB Clotheslines felt shapes
LYB Clothesline flowers
LYB Twig paper lace
LYB Clothesline chipboard
LYB Clothesline diecut flourish
LYB Delightful photo corners
Twine from The Twinery
