Challenge #51: 20/10

Welcome the new decade. Now that we are well underway in a new year we want to celebrate the year 2010. Use up your alpha's to create a title with a minimum of 20 letters and add a further 10 embellishments of any sort to your project. Or instead of the title, include journaling of at least 20 words and 10 embellies of any sort. Be creative and choose your own 20/10 combination (20 different papers, 10 different colors...etc etc)


Be sure and comment with a link to your *newly created* project so we can see and comment on them. From all entries linked no later than 20th March 2010, 16:00hrs EST we will choose one overall winner, who will be crowned our Queen of the Crap no later than 25th March 2010.


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


One of our very own DT members Tara has so generously offered up a fabulous kit from her store Up the Street Scrapbooking. You can see more pics on the blog.



We will be periodically having prizes up for grabs to those who scrap their crap as a reward for all your hard work :)

*** If you link us to an online gallery, make sure that you only use one for which we do not need to register in order to view/comment ***

Kim:

I am working on a mini book at the moment, which includes concert tickets/passes and pictures of gigs I have been at. While I still remember the fun times I thought it best to get them down on paper :)
For this layout, I used 10 different papers and created 20 punched cardstock circles as my embellishments.


It wasn't even as difficult as I thought to use so many papers. Go on and have a try yourself.
By the way: the picture shows me and Leatherwolf bassist Paul, after their 1989 gig in Hamburg/Germany


Illy:


I have tons of scraps of patterned paper on my desk, this is the occasion to finally use them! I used 20 different patterned papers cut in stripes, and 10 text lines for my journaling (including the title).
I altered my photo with warm water, sand paper and oil pastels. For the title I outlined chipboard letters with a fine marker.



Leslie:


I have been wanting to scrap these photos for a long time (2005, yikes!) My husband and I spend a lot of time refurbishing our old apartment, so the title was not hard to come by! My full title is 20 letters/numbers, and I used 10 paper embellishments and 10 pieces of paper to frame my photos.



Angela:


I thought this challenge would be harder than it was! My title is twenty letters/numbers and because the theme was "10 Things About You," I bulleted each thing with a button or brad, using ten embellishments! I have three kids so I ended up making a similar page for each of them, which you can view, along with a materials list, on my blog.



Tara:



I've had these photos since last spring and couldn't seem to do anything with them. Yes ... that's a frog eating a mouse. I challenged myself to use exactly 20 letters for my title. And for my 10 embellishments, I've used Prima Pearls & Crystals here and there. I've used Up The Street's February kit and you can see more photos of my layout on my blog.

Kristin:


I am addicted to flowers but with two boys I do not get to use them as much as I would like too ...so I decided to use them as part of my background and then I saw in Scrapbook Trends this cool page that this gal did with stacking their photos ...sometimes I wish there were 10 of me to get things done around this house ...lol


Michelle:



Girls, do I have ribbons. This challenge was just begging to use snippets of the stash I have. So with this challenge I used 20 of them and in a row. I wanted to keep all of the color onto one side and I still had to put 10 somethings on it before I finished, without it looking too ridiculous. BUTTONS, glorious little plastic buttons. I had to refrain from using more than 10 though and restraint is a word I don't like to use much,
but what scrapper does. LOL


Brianna:

I was so excited for this challenge,i have seen the use of jumbled letters in a title before and had to put my spin on it!i am a BIG fan of handstitching on my layouts,so i stitched 20 letters for my title,and for my star border i used,yep you guessed it,10 of them!Yay for 2010!


Sarah

I doodled 20 lines in black pen, created two lines of bling – one has 20 dots the other has 10, there are 20 words in my journaling, I sewed on 10 buttons and added 10 pearls to the ribbon along the bottom. I also inked the edges of the pp along the bottom, the arrows are stamped and the little bird is chipboard. There are more close-ups on my my blog.

Don't forget to link us your work for a chance at the new kit from Up the Street Scrapbooking.

很期待新的內容,幫你推個文^^ ........................................

Vieve said...

This wasn't hard, but did take me forever to make it look right! But I used up the rest of my clear buttons...which I wasn't planning on using again. So that was a plus, made room for something to fill that slot in the bin :)
