Hannah has set a new Budget to Blitz Challenge over at Scrappin' Patch. A Budget to Blitz challenge involves making a cheap layout look more expensive. You can only use one piece of Patterned paper (can be double sided) a piece of cardstock and only handmade items or non scrapping stuff as embellishments. Hannah has added that you also have to include paint or ink on your layout. I have used medical gauze on mine - something I saw on Trinas blog and thought that was an awesome idea. Here is my layout:
Here are a couple of layouts that were in the last scrappin' patch newsletter for inspiration. One using Pink Paislee,Tim Holtz alteration and a new Martha Stewart Punch and the other using Girls Paperie paper.
