Technique challenge - Only cardstock! Due 12/20

Create a layout using only cardstock...NO patterned paper. At all. Biggrin Oooh, I can feel myself fighting the urge to grab my favorite pack of pp right now! LOL. Digi girls, this will work for you, right? Just use solid colors!

Deadline will be Dec. 14th. Have fun and remember to turn off your siggies!

Just checking - we can use embellies, right? Just no patterned paper?

Go for it! I couldn't decide when I was posting this last night, so I just didn't specify. lol. But I'm thinking it might be too hard with ONLY cardstock. So yeah, embellies, letter stickers, etc. are okay as long as there's no pp. Smile

I can definitely swing this one ... sure would have been interesting if embellishments were limited to cardstock ones. Wink

That's kind of what I had in mind at first, but I was questioning whether that would be way to hard for paper girls without cricuts. Kwim? They'd be at a disadvantage for even making a title if there were no stickers allowed. But yeah, I think it will be awesome if anyone can do an entire layout with only cardstock!

Oh it's possible, one just has to think outside the box. Smile Even without a cricut! This one sounds fun!!

here is mine. I can't believe I had time to get it done today.

Journaling says "Your Nana bought you these pajamas. For days you would not wear anything else. We have bought you 4 other styles, but these are still your favorite. I have to wash them 3 times a week sometimes even! "

Okay so are we allowed to use metallic cardstock if it's still blank?

Too much fun.

Here is mine. This is TOTALLY not what I intended to do when I sat down to work on it. I was having trouble getting my idea to work with the pics I had so I guess I'll save that idea for another time. :confused:

Sorry for the glare on the pictures. We're leaving town in the morning and won't be back until sometime on Sunday so I thought I'd better post it now just in case. Smile

All of these are so good. I really look the simple and clean look of layouts without pattern paper. Too bad pp is just so much fun Blum 3
