Challenge #20

Hello, Kimberly here, with a new Papertrey Peeps challenge!

Hasn’t the past release week been fun? I am so excited by all of the fabulous new banner products that Papertrey Ink has produced. One of my favorite things about PTI is the way they introduce such comprehensive product lines that make crafting easier and more creative at the same time.

So for this challenge, pull out one of the older PTI “product lines” and get crafting while you wait for your banner sets. How about making some bookmarks with All Booked Up, a few notebooks with Take Note, maybe a holiday cottage with Home Made, a cookbook with Recipe Box? I’m sure I’m missing some, so feel free to include any product grouping you have.

Bonus points if you get ahead on your holiday preparation and make a gift for others.

I altered some mini composition books using the Take Note set. These are based on Lisa Johnson's tutorial here

Thanks for playing along.

Challenge #19 - Turn a negative into a positive!

Hey Peeps!

Sorry for the delayed setting of this challenge but I hope you can forgive me!!!!

I'll keep it short and sweet for ya; I challenge you to think about turning a negative into a positive. It's an idea that I certainly like to stick to in life in general, but as far as cardmaking/papercrafting is concerned what I'm specifically asking for you to do is use a negative (empty aperture) space in a creative way!

Here's my example:

This card was made for my guy to celebrate our anniversary on October 14th - can't believe I haven't had time to share it with you before now LOL! The 'negative' space here is the die cut heart shape, turned into a positive by filling it with buttons!

Can't wait to see you turn a negative into a positive!
