Crop challenges...

Our first ever Facebook crop event is now over, but I had some participants ask to have the challenges shared together on our blog.

Julene's "blind" scrap challenge
You will need:
1 portrait and 1 landscape 6x4 photo.
2 Patterned papers (12x12)
2 cardstock (one is backing and won't be seen)
small embellishments
a large monogram letter

Cut along the diagonals on both patterned papers making 2 large triangles.
Adhere to backing cardstock with the right angles on top left and bottom right corners.
Mat each photo with plain cardstock.
Cut a circle the size of a saucer from remaining cardstock.
Ink around this circle if desired then place in top left hand corner so that it goes over the edge. Trim off excess pieces.
Cut out monogram letter of your choice to fit in the middle of this circle. (I used A for attitude so it doesn't have to be a person's name.)
Adhere monogram in centre of circle.
Take 3 pieces of ribbon about 5cm long and fold in half.
Staple or use a brad to adhere these to the corner of your photos.
Adhere photos to page - portrait in the top right corner and landscape in the lower left hand corner, under the monogram circle.
Add journaling or title to the lower right hand corner.
Have fun.... The BLIND part is not knowing how it is supposed to look.

Participants didn't see the "result" until the crop was over, but here is your goal:

Cathy's double page tic tac toe challenge
Use one of our double page skteches (found on the blog or our Pinterest) along with this tic tac toe board:

Laura's Grab 5 challenge. Your five items are: stencil, stamping, alpha stickers, sequins, and this sketch:

purple challenge
Create a project that uses the Pantone Colour of the Year – Ultra Violet and one of Stick It Down’s sketches. Any sketch found on our blog or Pinterest and any shade of purple is fine 💜

Tina's double page recipe challenge with this sketch:

RECIPE - Use the double sketch. Use cardstock for your background, add some mixed media to the background. Add at least 5 photos, use 3 pattern papers, scatter some stickers, die cuts and some wood veneer.

 Ashley's sketch + song inspired layout challenge
Choose ANY Stick It Down sketch - new, old, card, layout, doesn't matter + be inspired by a song. Any song. You can find the SID sketches on the blog (just filter by card/single page/double page) or on Pinterest.

Antonia's oldie, but goodie challenge
Use any single page sketch previously featured on the Stick It Down blog or found on our Pinterest board. Antonia has a beautiful blog post about why she chose the sketches she did and ways to make the sketches work with your ideas:
and she also shared a process video:
