i have something a little special to share today - a couple of months ago i won a challenge at Pile it On!, and i was invited to be a guest designer, so TODAY, i make my Pile it On! debut!
so you know the way the Pile it On! challenges work, right? the idea is to combine current challenges (no backlinking) - using the Pile it On! challenge and at least one other... well some of their designers have it down to a fine art, and they are able to combine DOZENS of challenges to make one fantastic project! for this one, i actually combined NINE! that may be a record for me!
we want to see a BEAR in your creations. RAWR! :)
my bear is Koala digi from SomeOddGirl.com
lots and lots of options for this one, so here's what i did....
what the heck is it? it's a photo booth flip album. each page has a pocket, in which a couple of photo booth pics can fit, so i've left space on the fronts of the pockets to document the dates and places. :) the top flap folds up to reveal the full pages and to allow me to add pages or switch 'em out just by untying the ribbon:
here are the rest of the pages...
and the back cover:
and check out the challenge list! i'm shocked!
BasicGrey Challenges - Mix and Match - mix and match (used papers from Life of the Party, Green at Heart, Sugar Rush, Marrakech, Origins, Sugared, Urban Prairie. embellies from Hello Luscious, Life of The Party, Green at Heart. alphas from Eerie and Kioshi.) everything was from BasicGrey except the image (Some Odd Girl), the cardstock and border trim (Bazzill) and the ribbon (stash)
CES Challenge - embellish it! with 3 or more different types of embellies - i have a border strip, BG Pops, BG Woolies and ribbon, plus alphas)
Craft Us Crazy - something new and/or favorite embellishment (BG's Hello Luscious and Life of The Party collections, BG's Woolies)
Crafts and Me Challenges - anything goes, optional kraft (used kraft border strip)
Crafty Calendar Challenges - teddy bears
ABC Challenge - U for Unusual Folds (top flap folds up, papers are scored to flip)
Crafty Creations - May flowers
Paper Pretties - flowers
Polka Doodles - anything but a card (flip photo booth album)
i wasn't sure how much dimension i'd have on each page, but my intention was to make it full enough that the album would stand up by itself, and act as a little desktop decoration for my work station. :)
so there you have it! a little something different! hope you've all had a fantastic weekend, and come and play along at Pile it On!
