02/01/13 - Stacking Challenges

Happy February first to you all!
It's the second month of the New Year and I have already discovered that I am going to have to do something I don't want to to do as far as my scrapping goes...
Oh, it's nothing serious...   
  just something I have always challenged myself NOT to do: "stack"challenges.

For those of you who don't know what that means, it means that you create 1 project for a multitude of different challenges.
As you know I LOVE participating in challenges!
And almost all challenges are A-Okay w/ "stacking"
But I have always tried so hard to create one project for each challenge that I join.
It was my own personal goal and it has always worked out for me.  But that was before I started discovering all these amazing inspirational blogs! 
Oh and before I became a part of 3 Design Teams! LOL!
I created a layout today that is the perfect example of "stacking" in action!
"Snug As A Bug"
Supplies: Nikki Sivils' Sugar Cookie Collection, DCW's Green Woodland Collection,
My Minds Eye
Sweetest Thing Collection BlueBell Buttons, Jenni Bowlin Skinny Alpha Red,
Bazzill Basics In Stich'z Floss and Needle - Pebbles
, Heartpunch,
Whale of a Punch Large Circle punch, Zig Pen Black
I created this for 3 Challenges over at
1. "ScrapYou Pet" - including the twist to use hearts on your layout
2. "4 Categories" - I selected category #1-Buttons and included the twist of stitching your buttons on
3. "PageMaps and More" - Sketch #5

I guess for the most part it will be okay.  I mean, as long as I am still creating and keeping up w/ my goal of at least 10 layouts a month, does it really matter how I get there?? Nah!

BTW - In case you haven't looked at my statistics on the right-hand side of the blog,  I created 16 layouts last month; that's 13% of my goal! :0)


  1. Love love love love this! LOVING those cute photos and loveeeeeeee the hearts!!

  2. I don't think there's anything wrong with stacking challenges!!! Your layout turned out beautifully. I'm really impressed!

  3. As long as the rules say it's ok to stack challenges, I say go for it! I've never done it personally, but you've shown that it can totally work. This is adorable!


Thanks for all your comments!!! They really mean a lot to me!!!
