Hi everyone. Marcy here to start your week off with a challenge.
Before I get to the challenge I wanted to let you all know that we've teamed up with Glue Arts this week. They will be sharing some fun layouts featuring Modern Homemaker all week on their blog here. All of us here have had a great time trying out their adhesives this last little while.
I've been using this big guy a lot! I find it quite nice for larger items on my pages... like photos and mats. So, stay tuned this week for more projects featuring Glue Arts adhesive.
Okay.... onto the challenge for the week.
I challenge you to scrapbook a list. I'm a HUGE listmaker. I have a planner on me at all times. At first I thought I'd scrapbook a photo of my planner. But I've done that in the past.... so I decided to scrapbook a list of my boys' favorite things about school. The great thing about this topic was that I could use two of my favorite October Afternoon lines...Schoolhouse and Rocket Age!
(For all you eagle eyes out there you may notice that this layout is not exactly the same as the bit you can see in the first photo I posted. I wasn't happy with everything on it so I changed a few things). I typed my boys' lists out so many times it not even funny. In fact... the lists shown are actually adhered over individually cut strips... the Glue Arts adhesive took that challenge on like a champ! :)
I love how well different October Afternoon lines work together! I had no problem mixing in Schoolhouse with Rocket Age (and I threw in some Road Map title work on top of that too).
A couple of my favorite things... ink splatters and buttons.
I sent this challenge off to Lexi to see what she'd do with it. And funny enough, she chose to scrapbook a school related list as well!
I love how Lexi also mixed Rocket Age with previous lines.
Those red and blue ledger stitches are totally brilliant!
So, now you've seen what we've done with the challenge...we'd love to see what you do with it! Link us up in the comment section and share your work in our Flickr gallery!
Also, because of all the issues with Blogger last week, we have decided to extend the blog hop contest for one more day. We will choose the winners this evening and will post them tomorrow!
