...just a little blogaversary... Week Two Challenge

Hi everyone and welcome to my second week of my blogaversary celebration! I've just LOVED seeing all your paper pieced beauties, and I can't believe that there were 49 entries! I'm thrilled! I poured over all of your amazing samples, and without further ado....I have my top three favorite projects to share with you.

a) Jackie Pedro
b) Melisa Hunter
c) Lisa Henke

I've begun filling this jar with your entries (and by the looks of it, I'm going to need a bigger container! Woo Hoo!!), remember you can earn multiple chances at the grand prize by doing any, or all, of the following:
  • Enter a challenge - earn one chance
  • Use MFT, Stamping Bella or TCP in your entry - earn an extra chance
  • Be selected as one of my top three for any challenge- earn an extra chance
  • Enter all three challenges - earn an extra chance
This week's challenge is Sew Krafty!

I challenge you to incorporate sewing into your project, it could be machine stitching, hand stitching, embroidery floss, faux stitching, etc. And, you've also got to incorporate some Krafty elements into your project. If you read here a lot, you **know** how I feel about sewing, and kraft paper.

Now, creative note here....if you don't have Kraft paper in your home (gasp!!) I bet you could mimic the effect with some re-purposed pieces of cereal box... Remember that your project must contain both elements to be eligible!

I'm adding a Mr Linky to the bottom of this post, and it will be open until next Wednesday, March 3 at 9pm EST to add your project. I'll announce my top three projects as well as the third challenge on Thursday, March 4th. Please add a direct link to your project via your blog or online gallery. By that, I mean to be sure to link to the actual project, not to the main page of your blog.

You'll have just under a week to complete each one. You may combine this with other challenges, however, this is open to NEW work only, please do not link up older creations from your blog or gallery. Thank you!!!

Project Details:

My sample for the challenge uses The Cat's Pajama's Hearts and Flowers, and Coolvetica stamp sets. This is a 4 1/4 square card, made of, you guessed it, kraft cardstock. I've also included what I call a "stitched scraplet" made from kraft paper, and I've used all kraft matting on my project. To give each piece of Kraft additional dimension, I've inked all the edges with tea dye ink.

Patterned Papers are "Report Card" from October Afternoon and really just bring such a smile to my face. (They make me feel springy, even though it is snowing here in Boston...) Finished with a bit of stitched Aqua Mist ribbon and a aqua mist jute threaded button from Paper Trey Ink.

TCP Tuesday:

I'm also using this as my TCP Tuesday sample for the week (...albeit a few days late...) Susie's our hostess this week, and she's challenging us to use any springy stamp from The Cat's Pajamas. This makes my heart happy! Be sure to add your TCP Spring themed creation to the guestbook on Alma's blog. You'll find all the details on this week's challenge on Susie's blog.
In case you hadn't seen the prize package, which will be awarded randomly... here's what's up for grabs!
