Who is ready to begin this Monday with a great new challenge? I am so excited about this challenge because I have always had a crush on patterned paper. Paper is the heart and soul of scrapbooking. There are so many different looks that we can achieve with the use of patterned paper. For this challenge, we are asking that scrappers use 3 types of patterned paper and they all begin with the letter S. Striped, Spotted, and Subtle. Please enjoy this freebie pack to use with this challenge or venture out into your own Designer Digitals stash. There are also some wonderful new paper packs coming to the store this week for a sale. This would be a great time to add to your patterned paper collection.
Here are the details :
- Create a layout using three different types of patterned paper including stripes, spots, and a subtle pattern.
- Post your page in the Weekly Challenge Gallery by 11pm (EST) on Saturday, April 20th and you will be entered in the random drawing to win a $5 Designer Digitals gift certificate. Please put “Playing With Paper” in your title or description so I don’t miss your page! The winner will be announced on Sunday, April 21st.
If you need some inspiration for the challenge, take a look at how three Creative Team Members used stripes, spots, and a subtle pattern on their pages.
Merr (digigrandma) created this delightful page about her sweet Teddy. I love how she used the spotted paper as a border, the subtle paper as her foundation, and the striped paper as an accent.

I used my striped, spotted, and subtle patterned paper with a Layer Works template. I took this photo of my son just a few days before his bike wreck where we had to make a trip to the ER. He received 3 staples in is head, but is doing just fine. I look forward to seeing a striped, a spotted, and a subtle patterned paper on your next page!
