The 1 Hour Challenge posted today at Club CK was using Outlined Titles on your lo. There is a really great lo by Kim Watson in the July/August issue of Creating Keepsakes using this technique and I actually had the corner turned down on the page, because I wanted to try this out. So with the challenge posted today...and a great scrappy prize in the mix...I decided to give it a try. I used the negatives from some My Mind's Eye chipboard letters. It was really easy and fun, and I love the way the title turned out!
I also incorporated on the of the Weekly Challenges from Club CK that is hosted by one of the awesome Peeps each week. This week's challenge was a recipe challenge and you had to use 6 of 7 elements/items on your page.
-the colors red, white, and/or blue - Feel free to use one of these, any combination of 2, or all 3. The colors do not have to even be your main color - as long as one of these colors is somewhere on your page.
- ribbon, floss, or twine
-a border punch
-4 of something (in honor of the 4th) - use your imagination - it can be 4 embellies, 4 photos, 4 different pps, a 4 word title - however you want to do it as long as there is 4 of something
I used everything from the list, except for the border punch for my lo. There is still time to join in this fun challenge and if you'd like to participate, check it out here.
