Title: Consider the Cardstock
Hostess: Cheryl (Motherload)
Keyword: LoveVSBN08
Day/Date: Saturday, February 9, 2013
Time: 4pm EST

This VSBN, we’re revisiting past challenges, so here’s one you may have missed the first time around: SBVC180 – Consider the Cardstock .

The final issue of Scrapbooks, Etc. had a list of ways to dress up cardstock. Your challenge is to use at least two of these ideas on your next layout. This shouldn't be difficult if you're a cardstock junkie like me!

1. Die-cut it.
2. Ink its edges.
3. Emboss it.
4. Paint it.
5. Spritz it with water, crumple, and ink it when it's dry.
6. Layer punched designs on it to create your own cardstock.
7. Punch or die-cut a border on it.
8. Sand its edges.
9. Spritz it with ink.
10. Stain it.
11. Stitch it.
12. Weave it.

Here is my SAMPLE page: Colorado

Here is the GALLERY for this challenge...leave a little luv for everyone!

UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:
1. To be considered for VSBN Recognition, ALL VSBN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST ON Sunday, February 17, 2013.

I was thinking how cool that was, but then I started getting jealous! I have pictures laid out for a layout, but can't find paper to go with it. Do I have to count the amount of time I spend searching for paper as part of my two hours? LOL!

princessp1971 02-09-2013 12:13 PM

Have my page all done Cheryl...

Pretty in Pink

Ditto!

Annie's Pantry 02-09-2013 12:17 PM

Anyone see SANDI*S? Hope I didn't chase her off with my ..... VSBN CHOCOLATE BREAK!

SEE thread POST #41 in the goal thread and since nobody has guessed my snack, I decided that I would continue the fun "from the pantry" today.

SO.... I have free "FROM THE PANTRY" eye-candy to the first person that can guess what I had for my snack last night.

CLUE#1: Chocolate and Peanut Butter
CLUE#2: Not anything Reese's
CLUE#3: Does not contain Ice Cream

smadson 02-09-2013 12:18 PM

I am not first, but here I am. I have two past challenges to catch up on, but I am doing this one.
Peanut butter fudge?

:)
Sharon

smadson 02-09-2013 12:27 PM

Is your craft area a mess? Mine is a lost cause. I guess I don't put anything up when I finish a page before I begin the next one. I lost a photo that I was cutting a mat for. Stuff has poured onto the floor and into the tv room and onto the couch. Poor DH is watching basketball with a table of photos in front of him!!
Okay, finishing up this one. I did 3 techniques, punching, die cut, and embossing. Love this Cheryl!
Be back.
Sharon

cla616 02-09-2013 12:29 PM

My area is still neat, but only because I keep grabbing the same things.
This challenge is way out of my comfort zone, so I will have to think about it before digging in (and will completely destroy my craft area), however, I still have lots of catching up to do so I am going to continue to go backwards!!!

cla616 02-09-2013 12:30 PM

hmm punching and die cut, there's a thought, I can do that .... and
no icecream?

I was starting to think PB and chocolate fudge too ...

princessp1971 02-09-2013 12:36 PM

Well I like PB on my smores so maybe you do too???? Is it a smore

princessp1971 02-09-2013 12:37 PM

or chocolate cake with PB frosting

smadson 02-09-2013 12:41 PM

Here is mine; Enjoy Turned out kind of monochromatic. Seems, I like monochromatic. :)

thank you for the challenge. I have to go start chicken for dinner.
See ya all later. My area is just going to stay a mess till we are all done.
But look at how many pages we are getting done this week-end!
:)

I'm back and my Desk/Floor is CHAOS! I'm driving myself crazy because I mixed up my photos, they're now not sorted and I have to keep going through them for the ones I want to use .... tonight I need to get them back in the box sorted by event so it's easier

I still have to upload the last challenge page and yesterday's that are done and laying here ... not helping!

Lmn 02-09-2013 12:53 PM

WOW

Super Cool! I would have never guessed that but it sounds delicious! I'll have to add PB next time I have s'mores!

cla616 02-09-2013 12:56 PM

i would have never guessed a smore either, but sounds super yummy!!!!

smadson 02-09-2013 01:02 PM

I just realized we have extra time to the next challenge. Chicken is in the oven. Maybe I can work on the ones I missed last night and one this morning.
:)
Sharon Congrats Patti! :)

awjmgmom 02-09-2013 01:02 PM

We should have guessed that a Scout leader would have smores? ;)

Anavon - do you do dutch oven cooking too? I <3 my dutch oven!

cla616 02-09-2013 01:04 PM

hmm maci already awake, i guess it has been a couple hours already but time sure does fly, at least I got 2 pages done ... maybe after she goes to bed if I am not asleep first, hahaha

Lmn 02-09-2013 01:36 PM

You are SO right ... how could we have missed that one?

well, I've ripped, inked, diecut and I was thinking about embossing one section then these pages are done ... I scraplifted another page from my favorites ... much easier

Maybe during the break I can get dinner for DH & get my other pages uploaded!

princessp1971 02-09-2013 02:05 PM

I have been very seriously working on the next challenge and I have 2 pages done. Remember everyone that being a hostess means you get to see all the challenges early! Give it a try the next time around!!!

DH asked if we should grill something tonight.... translation he makes dinner 8)... might have to tell him to get a move on though.. it's after 5:00 here and he hasn't fired it up yet.. Mama's hungry! surprised the boys haven't squawked... too afraid to leave my crafty spot to find out... should have brought a snack in here!

princessp1971 02-09-2013 02:12 PM

Cheryl this is a great challenge I am sitting here trying to think of some new unique way to use cardstock on my pages....

thankfully i really had nothing in the house except some semi defrosted chicken, so I put it in the crock this morning with some spices and veggies, it smells good, normally i shred to make fajitas or tacos with, but i just put some brown rice on and will just have it over that with the broth, sort of soupy for hubby and me, not sure if the kids will eat any or not

eeddmm 02-09-2013 02:47 PM

Hi...I forgot that VSBN was today. Took DGS to bowling this morning and when I got home, I signed onto my work computer and worked all afternoon trying to get this new business up and running smoothly. But I'm here for the next challenge!

Yes... Not because I am a scout, but I come from a heritage of cowboys and mountain men. :) gotta love cowboy chow!

Lmn 02-09-2013 05:34 PM

I realized that I used only cardstock on this one, and I splattered and distressed and fussed, as much as I could with digital. I love how this one turned out.
