4 Product Challenge Week!

You know those challenges you see in the magazines. The ones where they send a few lucky ladies 3 or 4 products and have them create something using just those thing? Well, we decided to do our own 4 product challenge here on the SC blog this week. Stephanie and I came up with a list of 4 general products to use and asked a handful of SC members to help us out. We'll share their masterpieces each day this week, so be sure to check back daily. Here's the list of allowed supplies:
  • 1 sheet of patterned paper (may be double sided)

  • Studio Calico stamp

  • buttons

  • 1 length of ribbon

(we also said they could use cardstock and any tools they wanted)



I tried the challenge myself last night and this is what I came up with.



I think this was the fastest layout I've ever done! :) I got the idea of the snowflakes from a handout at church yesterday and thought about the new stamp SC designed for Little Monkeys. Go check it out. I used some white paint to stamp the snowflakes. Then I pop-dotted the main part up on the background. I added some ribbon (from Jan's kit!...shhhh!), patterned paper and the stamped title, some buttons, journaling, and viola. Done! It was actually easier than I thought!

Be sure to stop back in each day this week to see which SC members we put to the test. And be sure to leave them lots of love since we really put them on the spot and gave them just a day or so to get these done! Thanks so much gals!!! :)
