THIS WEEK’S CHALLENGE : Incorporate confetti into your design. 

This week, I’ve asked our March BasicGrey guest design team member Danielle Flanders to participate in our challenge.

Danielle says, “What conveys “party” more than confetti? I took out some BasicGrey brads and my hole punchers and went to town creating a confetti feel on a little pocket card! To make the pocket, I folded a piece of vellum up and stitched the sides with a zigzag stitch with my sewing machine.Vellum is very easy to stitch. I used different sized hole punchers to create a fun confetti border on the pocket. I made a white cardstock tag to tuck inside that says, “Thank you for coming to my party!” I added some of the Plumeria papers and stickers…love the purples and oranges. I found the colors bright and happy, great for a birthday!”

We can’t wait to see what you create for this week’s challenge! Leave a comment below with a link to your project and we’ll select one commenter at random to receive a collection pack of your choice. Comment must be posted by March 22, 2012 at 11:59p MST.

If you upload your layout to your blog or online gallery, be sure to also upload it to our new BasicGrey flickr page so that other BG fans can find your work easily.

  1. Hi, I am fairly new to this blog and have entered several of the challenges this last month. My question is where do you find the winners of the different challenges (sketches, weekly). I have been submitting since back in February and not sure where to look for them. I have only seen one winner announced back in February for one of the sketch challenges. I really enjoy this blog and all the different weekly challenges.

    • Hi, Sandi!

      All challenge winners are announced on the original challenge threads. :)

  2. Thanks for such a quick response. The reason that I was asking is that the weekly challenge on 02/17/12 due on 02/23 did not have a winner, but the sketch on 02/20/12 due on 02/26/12 did. I just wanted to be sure that I didn’t need to look somewhere else the the weekly challenges. Again, thanks for answering my questions.
