March Technique Challenge-Winners!!

Post by Deanna13 »

Our technique challenge for this month is to use those 6x6 pads of patterned paper that are popping up in alot of brands lately. I have a few and I really don't use them very much but I love the tiny prints. So thought I'd try to work on that more. You must use 3 or more 6x6 patterned paper sheets. If you have no 6x6 paper pads then you can cut your own or brands like We R Memory Keepers have paper with the backside sectioned into 4 6x6's if you have any of that. OR there's also lots of varieties for sale in the ACOT Store. You don't have to use the whole 6x6 sheets, you may cut them. You must also use a Border Punch. If you don't have any then handcut a decorative piece. For your layout background, you may use a sheet of cardstock or a decorative 12x12 like I have.

For my example I did use a decorative background patterned paper and all other papers are from the 6x6 pad. My banner strip across was made from 2 smaller pieces that met under my photo. I used a Martha Stewart Daisy Border Punch. Image

 For the fine print....
This can be paper, digi, card, or a project. All work must be new. You may do this 1 time. You may combine this with one other Challenge that allows that. Please link your work here along with the "March Technique Challenge Folder" in the gallery. Deadline is March 31st. A random winner will be selected for a $5 ACOT gift card!


Hope you have fun using some 6x6 papers!  Image

This challenge was so much fun for me. I got to use my new Happy Tails supplies and yes I bought the 6x6 pad. I also used my paw print boarder punch.

Yeah! I own 29 6x6 pads not including We R Memory Keepers that has them on the back! Yes, I just went and counted them. I don't buy a collection without buying the pads. They are perfect for scrappers like me that love to do punches on all layouts. I'm going to start this one right now. Great challenge Image

Thanks for the challenge. I have a ton of these packs and never quite use them up. This will thin out my stash.

Lovin' this challenge - I have a couple of those 6x6 paper pads - the real challenge will be to find them in my craft room.

Found them!!!  I used the Glitz Designs Wild & Free 6x6 Paper Pack, and a Fiskars border punch. I also dug around in my stash a found a Daisy D's rubon stitching thing that looks like a tape runner, I thought for sure that wouldn't work anymore.   Tossed in a little of the Elle's Studio Penelope line, and a Allison Kreft bag and called it a day.  Instagram print of Drea and I on our afternoon walk - playing with the sunlight and the shadows.

this is fabulous! I have been hoarding these 6x6 pads lately, especially when I can get them for only $3 at Michael's or HL!  Thanks for a great challenge and great idea. AND Love the idea to use the papers and putting the joint behind the picture to make it appear to be a longer banner piece. Great idea, I could never figure that part out. 


I have a LOT Of new 6x6 pads so I will get right to work on this one. I am definitely inspired and excited to scrap for this one!
