Our challenge this time is going to do a layout using apples in it. So it can be a recipe page, layout about fall or anything that uses apples. Since apples come in three colors I want the colors of the layout to have red, yellow and green in them.
3 yellow, and
3 green embellishments - ( buttons, brads, twine)
Have fun creating.
Here's what Susan, our guest designer, did for her second project this month.
I made a shadow box by three gypsies. Used Bo Bunny and My Minds Eye and Basic Grey. Apple brads and various embellishments that I had in my stash. I also inked all the paper edges with chestnut roan chalk ink.
Janet M - I enjoyed this challenge and choose a picture to do a page that I'll put in my recipe book of pages of family recipes, fun times together and pictures of things we have made.
I used three apples cut from my Cricut cartridge , three different ribbons, three colors of Thickers and pp. I used brads and bling in multiples of the three colors also. I enjoyed the fun I had with the colors in this.
Debbi T: I'm a teacher, so I get a school portrait taken every year, and I never know what to do with them. I decided this challenge was the perfect opportunity to document my apple-a-day ritual, which I plan to add to my weight-loss album. It just so happened that the October Work in Progress kit that I needed to work with had a paper with an apple pattern from the Crate Paper Farmhouse collection, so I used the WIP to make my page. This was such a fun and clever challenge, Janet!
My hidden journaling reads: During the school year, I eat an apple a day. Every day, I bring an apple in my lunch. My favorite is apple is the honeycrisp. My apple-a-day habit started when I began Weight Watchers. I bring a knife and cut my apple into small slices so I can take a long time eating it. I usually bring a frozen Weight Watchers Smart One or a Lean Cuisine, which gets eaten pretty fast, and then I cut my apple and enjoy it for the rest of my lunch time. (School portrait - Fall 2011)
Elizabeth: Fun challenge Janet! I decided to do it about Brock's first time eating, and our oldest child helping to feed him. Had to dig around for some apple embellishments, but I eventually found some in the lace cardstock and I cut some out of some patterned paper. Do circles count as embellishments? Well, I think I have lots of yellow, green and red on here anyhow ;). Thanks for the challenge!
Fi: Okay a bit of a tricky one, how to use apples...hmmmmm Anyway I went with another school class shot as I really couldn't associate apples with anything else and didn't have time to whip up an Apple Pie...lol I used some Simple Stories paper and thought this challenge can me the perfect opportunity to use my Quickutz Die's for some reason I needed these dies but had never had the opportunity to use them. lol
So I used the red, green and yellow papers, I die cut 3 apples and also 3 apples cores since we were working in lots of 3s, my embellishments are 3 paper clips 3 brads in each of the 3 colours, 3 butterflies and 3 acetate school themed pieces. I have hidden journalling paper clipped up the top which just reads who some of the kids are that I was friends with.
