TLC321 ~ The Same, But Different ~ (04/18/11)
Hi friends!

As you can see, I am posting a bit early tonight. The reason I’m doing this is that the challenge I’m about to give you might take you just a wee bit longer than our usual fare. I hope you all don’t throw things at me for this one .

~ The Same, But Different ~

As you know, many times when making a card you have a bunch of leftovers from the project you are working on and that stuff has to be put away (well, in theory… I usually only clean my desk once a week!). So for today’s challenge, you’re going to make TWO cards. They must use the same focal point, the same colors/papers, the same embellishments, punches, etc.…. Everything the same, except they need to be different (i.e. a different layout or a 3D item to coordinate…etc.). The only thing you can do differently is change the sentiment (IF the sentiment is not your focal point!). Remember, if you didn’t use it on one card, then you can’t use it on the other!

Here are my samples:

Remember when uploading to use keyword TLC321 (no spaces)

You can view the entire TLC321 gallery HERE.

Have fun!!

Cool! I think we all have enough to share on a 2nd card using the same items. Cool idea Holly.

imastampin 04-17-2011 06:31 PM

Very interesting Holly. Hmmm, I'm going to have to do some thinking for this one.

Joanlab 04-17-2011 06:33 PM

I'm going to need LOTS of extra time! Great challenge.

lacyquilter 04-17-2011 07:06 PM

Interesting challenge. Thanks, Holly. I think I need to print out the instructions for this one. lol.

stamp300 04-17-2011 07:08 PM

It sure makes you get your thinking caps on, doesn't it?

dawnmercedes 04-17-2011 07:22 PM

great holly..my desk IS clean right now! haha

Clownmom 04-17-2011 07:43 PM

I'm going back to work tomorrow after a week's vacation, so I figured I better do this tonight -- because I barely have time to do one card before leaving for work in the morning! Thanks for the early post. Here are my cards --

Great challenge! I love using what's already available. Here is my...


scrappykat 04-18-2011 05:18 AM

What an awesome challenge!! Can't wait to try this after work : )

hobbydujour 04-18-2011 05:26 AM

Your challenge was a "goodie" today, Holly. Certainly made me stop and think. I'm one of those that cleans my work space after every card since it is a small space and I would never find anything if it wasn't in its assigned place....just what works for me.


TrishG 04-18-2011 05:50 AM

What a fun challenge. I'm enjoying seeing what everyone's come up with in the gallery. Very creative!
Thanks for the challenge. I hope I get to it soon.

ruby-heartedmom 04-18-2011 05:58 AM

Just wanted to say, this is a great idea, Holly. ...and just in case you have any snippets leftover like I did, put them inside. It doesn't take much to take the inside of your card up a notch!

Greywolf 04-18-2011 06:00 AM

I am SO impressed! This is a terrific challenge, and the cards in the gallery are beautiful. Everyone is doing such a great job of making different cards from the same "stuff." I'm going to try this because once I make a card, it is easier for me to make a similar one, altho I've never done that using all the same materials before. Hopefully, I'll post here later. Thanks for the challenge!

What a fabulous idea. I haven't posted in the challenge for a while but couldn't resist this one. Here's mine but I goofed and used a different border punch when I was supposed to use the same one. That's what I get for not reading the instructions before I made the cards.

What a great challenge Holly! I'm not sure that these qualify though after rereading the directions.

Same but Different

Thanks for taking a look.

I'm a little late to the party, I intended to have this posted much earlier. Thanks for the very challenging challenge, Holly -- same but different is hard when no new products are allowed!

So FUN! I loved playing along today. It was amazingly difficult to design but I made - not one supply appears in one that is not in the other. Thanks for the challenge - it's great!
