Challenge #3

Spring, where are you?

I am in the Pacific Northwest and it looks nothing like spring this week, so I want to make a little spring on my own.  This challenge is "Too Much is Never Enough" ... otherwise known as I want to see your layouts with as many flowers on them as possible! Let's make it really springy :) They can be silk, paper, lace, chipboard, buttons, whatever.
If you're into creating flowers youself, here's an excellent list of tutorials:

Challenge #2

It's a sunny day here and makes me think of Spring! In honor of that, today's challenge is a Palette Challenge, based off this beautiful photo of spring flowers.
 I just love the color combinations on this & can't wait to see what you come up with! Be sure to leave a link to your project in the comments for this post :)

Challenge #1

I want to start off the weekly challenges with one of my favorite types of challenges: an ad challenge. What I love about advertising is that everything on an ad is placed with consideration to what the other content will be. I have been particularly intrigued by vintage ads as of late, so your challenge this week is to create a layout based on this ad:
Have fun & don't forget to post a link to your page in the comments :)

Welcome to the Paper Thrills Challenge Blog!

I am one of those people that loves to get inspiration from outside people, places and things for my crafts. I have noticed a lack of sites that have a variety of challenges as of late, so I wanted to start one that would offer weekly challenges.

That being said, for this new site, I will need a design team. I am looking for 11 talented designers to offer their expertise on a bi-weekly basis for a 1 year term. I can't offer anything other than exposure at the moment, but at least we get to have fun! I will close out the call on Sunday, April 10th. Please submit your 3 designs based on these 3 inspirations:
1) Use this color palette to create a layout, card, or altered item

2) Create a layout or card based on this magazine ad
3) And, finally, create a card or layout using this sketch:
Please send all Design Team Application items with your full name, email, and addresses of any galleries or blogs that you have your work on to with the subject "Paper Thrills DT". Happy scrapping!
