Scrapbook Challenges: Full House Challenge

You might be wondering just what is a Full House challenge. It's essentially like being dealt a hand of cards only instead of the suits you normally see, each card has an item that must be used on your layout. There is not a wrong way to interpret the challenge. You can do so literally or play a bit with some creative license. I did a bit of both.

A Cute Boy with Bunny Ears On By Christy Strickler |Supplies Patterned Paper: American Crafts; Letters: Elle's Studio, Colorbok; Glitter Glue: Stickles; Flowers: Sassafrass, Maya Road; Sticker: American Crafts; Wood Button: Jillibean Soup; Stamp: Studio Calico; Ink: Tsukineko; Flair: Fancy Pants; Jewel: Freckled Fawn; Paint: Ranger Liquid Pearls; Stencil: Jenni Bowlin; Embossing Paste: Wendi Vecchi; Other; Doily, Tag, Flossy Accents

Here is how I interpreted my hand of cards:
-the 3x4  journal card is the notebook print. I cut it into two pieces and used it as though it were patterned paper.
- The tag and two pieces of flair are easy to spot.
- I stamped a set of bunny ears and used it in the title.
- I used Liquid pearls paint in Ocean Blue and White Opal to make tiny dots which are scattered like beads around the flower clusters.

The challenge really is super easy to work with. I think the hardest part for me was finding a way to incorporate the paint into my busy patterned paper background. It takes a bit of planning as you pull out your supplies but what I love about a challenge like this is how it incorporates so many items and techniques into one page. I really felt like I gave my stash a workout to create this page. Be sure to stop by Scrapbook Challenges to see the Full House Challenge with inspiration from the SBC Sketch Crew.

Supply Options

I recently created a kit based on this mood board and the Scrap Stash Kit Club Bunny Hop Palette. I used a few of the papers from the original kit plus added just a few extra items within the palette.
