Ch 4: Vicki's flowers, ribbon and buttons ch!!

Post by vickstar on Tue Mar 15, 2011 7:43 pm

I know we all love using handmade items in our scrapping at the moment, especially flowers, which means our flower stash is being neglected (well i know mine was, lol!), so my challenge to you all is to create a layout using flowers, ribbons and buttons as a main feature!! And no, they can't be handmade flowers, they must be paper flowers from your stash! lol!

Here is my example:

I have actually managed to combine a component from all the other chs in my layout too, i have used VERY old pp, butterfly stickers, and old chippie alphas!! Smile

The winner of this challenge will receive a $20 crochet goodie pack from the Lime Tree Creations APRIL release!! You will get to see the goodies before they are even released for the public!! (Thanks Becci!) Smile


All entries need to be loaded into the correct gallery folder by midnight Sunday, March 27th!

Awesome challenge! This one I can definitely do! I've been right into flower clusters lately - too many flowers in my stash. And ribbons - plenty of that too Smile

I was just looking at my flowers the other day and thinking I must use more of them as I hardly ever use them now. Also have way too much ribbon.

there's nothing saying you can't alter the flowers Becci... Use individual petals inked up for leaves for example.. I'm sure you'll think of something fabulous!!

BTW Love the challenge and LO Vicki!!!

LOVE this challenge Vick! (You can add me to the list of people who has too many flowers and hasn't been using them! LOL)
Gorgeous LO too! Seeing your cluster does make me want to get all those old flowers out! Very Happy

Go grunge Becci!!! Very Happy (Ink or mist the flowers, distress / rip them slightly and attach using a pair of crossed staples in the centre - works a treat!)

Just finished my LO for this challenge - I used up loads of flowers - yay Smile

The flowers are definitely the focus of the LO, but I added a little ribbon and buttons in there too. I don't have a big button stash but I managed to find a couple!

I'll upload it tomorrow Smile
