Welcome to Monday Morning Challenge, where we offer up a challenge, and share with you our designers take on that challenge. Today we asked our designers to use only paper and stickers to create their projects.
“Life Captured”, by Kay Rogers.
I have to admit, working with paper only for this challenge wasn't much of a challenge, as several of my layouts are paper only! I love using stickers and die cuts, and popping them off the page with dimensional adhesives. This is my daughter and her fiancé, photo permission granted by Ashley Folkema. They are getting married this year. Exciting times ahead for our family!

“Sweet Notes”, by Jamie Harder.
This was such a FUN challenge! I love patterned paper and these gorgeous papers make it easy to be minimalistic on my pages :-) I decided to cut out a few of the hearts and run them through my Cuttlebug for a bit of fun texture. I also love dimension so I used dimension dots on my paper hearts as well as the hearts, "notes" and "happy happy happy" stickers too! For a bit of interest, I used the negative space around the pink heart on my page. I included one of my daughters sweet love notes on my page and used one of the hearts she had drawn as another fun embellishment!

“Smiles” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
For my card, I created texture by starting with a stencil and adding some texture paste to it. After that was dry, I layered on a strip of patterned paper (from the new Lucky Starz collection) and added some zig zag stitching. For the focal image, I adhered a Candid Card (which I added some dry embossing to) along with some coordinating stickers.

“Built Tough” card, byLaurie Schmidlin.
For this photo card, I added texture by including a dry embossed piece of cardstock in the background, machine stitching, and dimension (I popped up a couple of the stickers).

“Proud Cousins”, by Allyson Meinholz.
This was a bit of a challenge because I wasn't able to add buttons, chipboard, paper pieces ~ which I kept grabbing for. I loved how the NEW Family Forever Collection went so well with these photos! I started with a cardstock base, added my pattern paper and photos. I made a camera as an accent piece. I made the lens dimensional with a heart cut from a patterned paper and the flash was made from cardstock and a text icon from a pattern piece of paper. Along with the letter "I" sticker letters for the flash mark.
