TLC261 ~ Itís In The Pieces ~ (02/22/10)
Good evening, Friends!

Weíre going a little retro this week. Back a few years ago, paper piecing was all the rage. Remember when you could buy those cute little people and their accessories according to theme? I thought those were so cute. Then a couple years back, our own Meredith Burnsed (memory_lane) started posting display boards of punch pal ideas.

~ Paper Piecing Revisited ~

Thatís our challenge today. Take a look at your punches and die cuts and see what kind of scene you can create! If you need a little help, check out Meredithís display boards HERE.

Of course, youíll still be able to use stamps to decorate and youíll need a sentiment (though itís not required!).

Here is my sample:

~ Itís Just Paper Pieces ~

Please remember when you upload to include KEYWORD TLC261 (no spaces).

You can see the entire TLC261 gallery HERE.

Now go get creative!!

Holy shamolies! I saw a really cute dog yesterday and thought - how stinkin' clever!!! I could never figure that out for myself because I'm just not wired that way! And here you are with that very challenge!!!

Because you are my friend, I'll give it a go tomorrow!

Toy 02-21-2010 08:24 PM

I just CASED a card that had been in my favorites: Spring Yet?

...and I had to do an ATC for my Technique ATC Album: ATC Polar Bears

Thanks for a super-fun challenge. Tomorrow's my day off and DH isn't home, so I stayed up and played like a bad girl!

markie's mom 02-22-2010 07:08 AM

Holly, I was so inspired by you in the first card I made, that I decided this one would be one that I created on my own! LOL (Actually, it's a paper punched oriental lady I came up with years ago! LOL)

Here's my Paper Punched Oriental Girl

DawnMaries 02-22-2010 07:21 AM

When I saw paper piecing, I had instant ideas - glad I read on quickly to see that it was Punch Art, which I love :D.

PS It is SO good to be back on Splitcoast! I love it here and sure did miss it the year I was gone!

What a wonderful challenge and here I am on holidays and miles away from all my supplies. I considered taking some "stuff" with me but what to bring. Oh well I've got 2 weeks to dream up my sketch for this challenge. I may try to see what I can submit, glueing flowers and shells and beachy stuff to a card. This would be a double challenge!

cullenwr 02-22-2010 09:23 AM

Fun challenge, Holly! You owl-ways come up with such good ideas! :-)

Maxell 02-22-2010 09:31 AM

Here's my Punched Pooch

scrappyandhappy 02-22-2010 12:20 PM

Thank you so much Holly for this challenge.
I really loved it...it got me to crack open something I have wanted to do for ages. The images were die cut...so I had to punch them out with my hands. Easy Shmeasy though!
I shall call it:

My Angel Children

It actually made me feel a great completion to a tough {last} week...so I thank you for that!

MariLynn 02-22-2010 12:22 PM

Holly, what a great challenge. I decided to make a card with a spring theme, especially after having to shovel snow this morning.

I used 4 different punches to creat my dogwood flowers.


BobbiesGirl 02-22-2010 12:39 PM

This was just too, too fun. Here's mine.

Amaranthine 02-22-2010 12:45 PM

I built a butterfly.


Have a super evening!!!
