Gail says: I've been wanting to create a layered banner across a layout for the longest time so this challenge was perfect for me! The Simple Stories signature elements are fantastic for cutting apart and using as page accents. I used the mini elements included in the Fabulous 6x6 paper pad and they were perfect for my banner! I just love the endless options for accents with all the different types of signature elements.
Emily states: The Documented line is to date my favorite for awesome phrases to use on cards and altered projects. I had the "Don't Forget" in my scraps and knew it would be perfect for today's challenge. I made a card to remind someone they are loved. The phrases are so versatile, and my favorite part.
Kim says: My absolute favorite thing to do with the Signature Elements is to create fast & easy cards. This works for any size element, but for my samples here I used the small signature elements from the FABULOUS collection. All it takes is the signature element, a few stickers and a fun sentiment and you have the makings for some quick & easy cards!
Donna states: My layout was inspired by the 4x6 Vertical Journaling Cards (#2212) from the Awesome Collection. My oldest son will be turning six next month and I decided to make a page about him using the All About Me card. I simply took a snapshot of him and then asked him to answer the questions on the card. The card does double duty as a title which made this layout so quick and easy to put together!
Cari says: When we were given the challenge to use the Signature Elements. I knew that I wanted to create a layout and I wanted it to be a 'hands-on' kind of layout. So I decided to use the 4x6 Journaling Card Elements from the Fabulous collection and a strip from one of the 2x12 Title Strip Elements. Using these pieces can help you create a layout in no time! That's why they're so wonderful! As I was figuring out what pictures to use and creating my layout design I realized that I wanted to use the 4x6 journaling card elements as windows or flaps and my photos would be underneath. To create the flaps I just made a very thin (approx. 1/8" - 1/4" ) fold on the edges of the cards and adhered a strip of double sided tape on the back to adhere overtop of my photo. To make the flaps easier to open I attached small pieces of ribbon and a punched shape on the middle flap. This layout was so fun to create, simple to put together and took no time at all using the Signature Elements!
So there you have it! Consider yourself challenged! Now its your turn to create something wonderful!
