Hey y'all! Mandy here with the Monday challenge for you.
This weeks challenge is really pretty simple, I'm challenging you to reach into your scrap bins and use your October Afternoon scraps. I'm sure most of you have lots of scraps of all shapes and sizes so lets use them up! You could create a card, a mini album, a project life spread, tags, or a layout like Danni and I did.
I keep all my OA scraps separate from my other scraps and I put my embellishment scraps(cut stickers, misc labels, etc) in an old milk glass dish on my desk.Here are some of the scraps I pulled out when I began my layout:
This layout came together rather quickly because everything was already cut even the wonky yellow dot paper.I decided that I would use this photo of Avery that was a misprint I had previously cut down to use as a size guide on my projects(i guess this means I'll have to dig out another scrap to replace this now). Even though I had lots of scraps to use I kept the layout pretty clean and simple. I've used a mix of scraps from old and new lines like Travel Girl, Midway, and Farm Girl to create this layout.
Danni played along with my challenge this week, I asked her to take a before picture of her scraps to give you an idea of what scraps she was working with:
Danni created this gorgeous layout with her Travel Girl scraps.
Here is what Danni had to say about the challenge and her layout:
I was really excited when Mandy invited me to participate in her use your scraps challenge. I have been creating cards and projects like a mad-woman with the new October Afternoon Travel Girl line and so I had accumulated quite a pile of scraps, some little, some block of pp, some punched and some just itty bitty, they ALL went on this layout in some form, yes, even the punched ones...smile. I only added embellishments and a title here and there to accentuate the layout, the rest was all scraps and it felt so good to have a home for them. Thank you for such a fun challenge today Mandy, can't wait to see what everyone creates with their scraps pile.
I love how Danni used all those scraps, don't you?! The layers, the stitching, everything is just awesome!!
I hope we've inspired you to tackle those scraps! Please share your projects using your October Afternoon scraps with us in the OA Flickr group. We can't wait to see what you create!
Have a wonderful week! Thanks so much for stopping by!
