Scrapbooking with patterned papers

handmade card

Time for some colour and pattern — in fact, as many patterns as you dare!

Your challenge is to create a project using at least four patterned papers — a card, a tag, a scrapbook page. Whatever you like is fine as long as it includes a variety of pattern!

Take a picture of your project and upload it to your blog or a page gallery. Leave a link in the comments on this post to enter. See this post for details and deadlines for this weekend.

One randomly chosen entry will win a prize package filled with patterned paper perfect for as many projects as you wish!

    This took me a while, and I found it really hard to not feel like I was clashing – but i think I got it to work in the end. Here is my layout:

  5. Torry Schellhorn Says:

    This was the fastest layout I’ve ever done! I usually spend days mulling things over :)

  6. Natalie Says:

    I used five different patterned papers on this one! It started out as a take on your sketch earlier this weekend, but morphed into a submission for the patterned paper challenge. Thank you so much for all of your creative inspiration!!!

  7. emy Says:

    I’ve had a go at this one, using a photo I took during the “Love your Photos, Love your Pages” class of my daughter drawing.

  8. Karen Moss Says:

    I have made a card using 4 different papers and it is on my blog here.

    I used four double-sided patterned papers:

  15. Julie Says:

    Another challenge covered by something I’ve already done this weekend. Have to see what else I can come up with later……

  16. Jamie Leija Says:

    Tackled this one with a card! Although one of the papers was stripes and full of design, I did use 4 sheets of BG’s Nook and Pantry: Thank You Card

  17. Louise Says:

    A little” something “: patterned papers for this one. Thanks Shimelle :)

  18. Maya Says:

    My Saturday Morning layout used 5 different patterned papers. Great challenge!

  19. Cate Says:

    This notebook I decorated has 4 patterns of paper. It took so long to find a combo that matches! The blue layer looks like it’s plain but it’s actually very finely polka dotted.

  20. Alison M Says:

    Four patterned papers used here. Great challenge!

  21. Kirsty Smith Says:

    Here’s my offering: The Comedy of Errors, courtesy of October Afternoon Thrift shop. I love how the muted colours in the collection go really well and yet still have a kind of faded glamour. Theatrical!

  22. rinda Says:

    Lots of patterned papers on my collaged bunting flag in the bottom picture (middle flag) in this blog post:

  23. Anso Says:

    Had fun with this challenge:

  34. CoCo Says:

    Great challenge…strange subject matter (on my LO). Have decided to make a ‘down on the farm’ series of everyday farm life stuff. This is now second in the ‘series’ (of 2) just because I couldn’t think of a better title and already have a LO entitled down on the farm. And so a series was begun!

  35. Bethan Says:

    Another greatchallenge

  36. TrĂ­ona Says:

    Here is my layout – enjoyed this challenge as I find it hard a lot of the time to use more than two different patters.

    Here it is!

  37. Peggy Says:

    Yay! I scrapped Dave’s pics of the Alberta Hall & Memorial today and,as luck would have it, I used four patterned papers.
