Challenge #2 | DT Projects

Today, I’m sharing a few of the design team members’ take on EYE Challenge #2.

Holly created this stunning layout by choosing to use a minimal print for her background and added her graphic patterns in small amounts by including them as bunting and in the cluster.


Supplies used: We R Memory Keepers, Basic Grey, MME, 7Gypsies and a few other unknown patterned papers; BG paper flags, Bazzill kraft border trim; Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous stamp; Maya Road olive flower ribbon, metal and felt flowers and flower stick pins; Recollections rhinestone flourish and camera sticker; AdornIt, Recollections and American Crafts alpha stickers.

Holly writes:   “I chose the title, It’s All Relative, because the photo is of a big group of cousins gathered together for my Uncle’s 90th birthday party in El Paso, Texas in June this year.  There was a photo booth at the dinner and while we were getting ready for our shots, I had someone shoot candid pics of us from the side.  This is one of my favourites.”

Jessi’s layout also uses small bits of patterned papers with a minimalist background – to incredible effect:


Supplies used:  Crate Paper, My Mind’s Eye and October Afternoon patterned papers; Heidi Swapp rhinestone frames; EK Success Scalloped Edge punch and corner rounder; American Crafts alpha stickers; Maya Road chipboard heart; my Mind’s Eye ephemera heart; Chic Tags paper embellishments; scalloped edge scissors, pinking shears; Zig Writer marker; sewing machine.

Jessi writes:  “When I am working with patterned papers, my go-to rule is to find balance. Whether it’s symmetrical lines or a neutral background or using something on the LO in a similar way more then once…the key is finding balance.  This layout is an example of using a neutral background, symmetry and using pattern papers and embellishments more than once (scalloped edges) to create balance.”

Wonderful take on the challenge, ladies!
