The challenge this week was a color challenge. We also had to use a punch which is a no brainer for me. I always use at least one punch on every page.
We had to use these colors as our main color scheme but it was ok to add in little of other colors. I added a pop of Tangerine Tango.
The first thing I did was pull out my Stampin' Up catalog and search through all of the papers to see what I could use with this challenge. The most difficult part was finding a picture that went with the color scheme. I was so excited when I found the pictures of my youngest daughter wearing the pillow case dress I made. Then I remembered I had fabric left over and thought it would be cool to include the fabric on the page some where. Then 2 days later and after lots of cutting, wasted paper, peeling off, and rearranging I ended up with this...
I really wanted to pull in the circle pattern from the fabric of the dress. The page turned out having retro feel with lots of stitching.
Cardstock and Designer Series Paper:
I used paper from the Baja Breeze and So Saffron Patterns Designer Series Paper. I have packages in almost every color. Check it out.
I used Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, Tangerine Tango cardstock.
Die Cuts with the Big Shot:
Of course, I used the Top Note (113463)!
I had fun cutting the fabric with the Scallop Circle die (113468). How cool is that? I just put the fabric in the machine like I do when I use paper. Super easy and so many possibilities cutting fabric with the Big Shot.
I used the Scallop Edge punch (112091) on the Chocolate Chip cardstock.
I punched a scrap of Tangerine Tango with the new Eyelet Border punch (113692) and slipped it up under the picture for a little pop of color.
I used the Scallop Square punch (112081) and then cut it into a photo corner.
I used the "a little Something for you" stamp from the Yummy stamp set (113782) only available during the Sale-a-bration (found on page 7 of the Sale-a-bration catalog). The swirl fits perfectly in the Top Note die cut.
I used the little orange owl rub-on from the Bright Delights rub-on set (113887). First I rubbed it on white cardstock and cut it out. Then I tucked it behind the paper next to the title. Cute!
I used 4 of the Summer Sun Corduroy button/brads (114343).
The felt flower is from Flower Fusion Too Accents & Elements set (112006).
The letters are American Craft Thickers.
The white ribbon is from the ribbon used on the dress in the picture.
I found the fabric at Hobby Lobby.
The straight pins and embroidery thread I just had on hand.
Only three ladies left in the Scrap Idol! I find out Tuesday if I continue on to the last challenge. Wish me luck!
