Every October Afternoon product line has a theme. For example, Boarding Pass is a travel-themed line, Holiday Style is a Christmas-themed line, etc. Regardless of the line's theme, one of the fantastic things about every October Afternoon product line is that many basic and beautiful patterns are included that make each line incredibly versatile. With that in mind, today we are challenging you to choose one product line and use it to make two projects - one focused on the line's main theme and the other focused on thinking outside of the line's main theme.
Danni decided to take on this challenge with the new Woodland Park line, which has a spring-y, outdoors-y theme. This is what Danni had to say, "I absolutely love the Woodland Park line. I can see creating lots of spring cards, birthday cards, mother’s day cards and beautiful friendship cards." Danni did just that, creating this gorgeous spring card:
Danni went on to say, "But when I saw the cuuuute bunnies on this journal card, I just had to create a baby card. There are so many uses and possibilities and 'thinking outside the box' will be so much fun with this new, fabulous line."
Don't you just love those cute cottontails Danni added to the journaling card? Here's a closer look at those:
For this week's challenge, I chose to work with the new Cakewalk line. Cakewalk is a birthday-themed line so I started by making a birthday card showcasing the main theme of this line:
Next, I put on my "non-birthday lens" and looked for the possibilities with this line. The fun pink patterns and cute animals jumped out at me so I grabbed my heart punch and a couple of stick pins and this love-themed card was born (I think this would be fun to sneak into my daughter's lunchbox sometime this week!):
We'd love to see your "theme/un-theme" projects! If you take on this challenge, please post your work to our October Afternoon Flickr Gallery for all to see!
