August 4 x 4!

Welcome to another edition of the 4 x 4 challenge!

“The Rules”:
- We must use the same four products: two papers and two embellishments.
- We can only use one of each sheet of paper.
- We can use unlimited basics (card stock, ribbon, alphas, mists, etc.) as long as the four main products are the focus.- We cannot share our finished pages with each other until we are all done so that we do not influence each others’ design choices.

This month we are working with October Afternoon’s Rocket Age, Echo Park’s Dots and Stripes, and some Jenni Bowlin chipboard stars:

This was a challenge for me seeing as I had already worked quite a bit with both Rocket Age and Dots and Stripes.  But I managed to squeeze this bad boy out:


Just Like Dad - detail

I tried to add a lot of interest to the minimal amount of paper that I used. Foam tape, baker’s twine, border punches, and paint were my friends this round!

You’ll definitely want to check out with this month’s other players did with these products.  See Carrie’s and Meg’s takes on their blogs and of course you’ll want to visit Chrissy who is hosting this month’s contest and prize!

Thanks for playing along!
