Challenge #5 - Extra, Extra, Read All About It!!!

On this week's show, the challenge was to create an outfit out of newspaper! That's right, you read it correctly - NEWSPAPER!! The outfits some of the designers created were absolutely amazing - you couldn't even tell it was paper on some of them!

Beth and I were trying to figure out how to make this challenge work for scrapbooking, so here's what we came up with!

We have kits donated from Rusty Pickle
that have some newspaper elements on them, so we decided to go with those for this week!

Your challenge will be to use the Rusty Pickle kits and create a layout that is about something newsworthy in your life or someone else's life (examples are: buying a house, promotion, learning something new, or anything that is good news!!). You will also need to incorporate printed media in your layout somehow (you could cover chipboard, use cut-out letters for a "headline" title, make newspaper flowers or other embellishments, etc.). Examples of printed media are: newspaper, magazines, old or new books, catalogs/ads, etc.

Email me at if you would like a kit - we have 10 more available so hurry!! Please do not leave a comment on the blog about the kits since Beth is the one who receives those and we know she is busy with her new baby).

So just to recap, Challenge #5 is to create a "newsworthy" layout using the kit provided to you, and incorporate some type of printed media on it.

You have until midnight next Thursday, Sept. 24th to email me your layouts (! Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!!
