Weekly Challenge | penny

This week, our member Penny (penny), wants you to create a project using both dots and stripes. Our members are so talented and we love seeing your work in the gallery! Check back each week as we ask one of our members to inspire you with a challenge based on one of their projects from our member gallery. Be sure to visit Penny to see more of her work and keep up with her.

Happy Monday, everyone! It's Penny here, and I am so happy to be back at my scrap desk. It seems like I don't get enough creative time during December that doesn't involve sending cards, baking, and wrapping gifts. I absolutely love patterned paper! And when I recently re-organized my scrapbook supplies, I noticed that I have quite a few striped and dotted papers. I think I just gravitate toward simple patterns that are easy to line up on a page. So the challenge for you is to use both dots and stripes on your project. You can make your own dots and stripes from embellishments, paint, and/or paper scraps - or just use pieces that are already patterned. Have fun with it!

Now it’s your turn to create a project based on Penny's challenge! Share your new project for the challenge in the Studio Calico gallery (add the hashtag #SCchallenge to make it easier to find!), then link up your project in the comments of this post by January 18th to be entered to win a $5 gift card to the Studio Calico Shop! This week's challenge winner will be announced in the January 23rd Layout of the Week post.

    I love dots and stripes! Here's my take - I think they show up on almost all my layouts.


    Love your layout @Penny - great color choices

    I created a card with dots and stripes. This is for my husband's birthday from our pup.
