Red Hot Challenge

Friday, March 12, 2010
At February’s Red Hot Stamper’s Down line meeting, Glenda gave us a challenge. In the Occasions Mini (pg 34) they are selling Chipboard - On Board Books for $4.95. They have three choices: Heart (6” x 5 3/8”), Scallop Circle (6” diameter), and a Bird (8-1/4” x 3-3/8”). Glenda purchased the Bird On Board Book and after punching out the bird she was left with this86 (I took this picture against a black background so it would show up better)

She gave each of us one of these bird punch outs and said “now it’s your turn to make something from this.” Well, knowing that Rachel is the “Queen of Challenges” I knew I had to get on the ball and put my idea to work. Lately I have been making scrapbook pages for my daughter, Julie, to help her out and to get my scrapbook “fix” (since I am all caught up with my pictures) so I guess I had scrapbooking on the brain when Glenda gave us the Bird outline. Well… what do you think?


It will look so much cuter with pictures of Tyler and Gracie on it, but you get the idea. Once again I was able to use up some retired paper. Dies I used are the Loopy Flower and Swirly Decorative Strips and the Scallop Circle #2 for the Wing. Her eyelashes are snipped and flared although it is hard to see from this picture. The wing is also snipped, and raised with dimensionals.

Here are the challenge results from the other gals… This is what Rachel came up with and she plans to hang it on her front door. Pretty!!

Glenda used hers as a stencil as well and stenciled two birds (facing each other) on her Stampin' Room wall. I couldn't get a good picture because the color was so light...she was testing a new color out for her wall. She even suggested how cute it would be to put a variety of colored birds around the room. Really the ideas are endless.

We had a real small group so these were the only ones who participated. Check in on next months challenge - it is a color challenge. We'll see if I can come up with something fun for that.

So For Now...
Happy Stamping!!

How fun - I love the pages. I will have to put some spring pictures of the kids on it. Thanks again for all the scrapbook pages - when I actually do sit down to work on it again it will be really easy!!!
