    Hello fellow Lilypad Dwellers!!! I can't believe that we only have just over a week left in this wonderful month of MOC :cry You all have been amazing with your beautiful and creative layouts you have graced the gallery with!! Keep it up...you can do it!!!:cheer

    I am here today to host a PLAYING WITH PAPER STRIPS CHALLENGE!!! The purpose of this challenge is to use paper as an elements rather than a background. You should take solid or patterned papers and digitally cut them into strips as a way to embellish your page. By layering and overlapping your papers strips, you give depth and dimension to your page, just like paper scrapping.

    Your Challenge Requirements:
    1. You must have at least 7 (for MOC7) paper strips filling at least 50% of your layout.

    2. You may use papers, vellum or pre-made paper strips for this challenge. You may NOT use tags, word art or journal cards as your paper strips.
    3. You cannot journal on your paper strips

    Now, before all you minimalist, clean scrappers freak out, I want to show you some beautiful layouts that inspired this challenge.

    Aren't they beautiful and amazing?!? Many of the strips overlap each other, making the strips seem to lift off the page. I can't wait to see your creative juices flowing for this challenge!! I am not normally a filled page type of girl, but sometimes you gotta break out of your comfort zone and try out some new styles. The possibilities for this challenge are endless!!

    Remember: We're using paper strips as an elemental focal point; not as journaling strips or tags.

    Here is my layout I created for this challenge!!

    Requirements Recap:
    1. You must have at least 7 (for MOC7) paper strips filling at least 50% of your layout.
    2. You may use papers, vellum or pre-made paper strips for this challenge. You may not use tags, word art or journal cards as your paper strips.
    3. You cannot journal on your paper strips

    General Requirements:
    Your page must be a new page in order to count for the Month of Challenges. Your page must be posted in three places:
    • Uploaded to the TLP Gallery (not an outside hosting site).
    • Posted in your page thread you created in the MOC Layouts Folder. You should have one post per completed challenge page. If you complete all 31 challenges, your thread should contain 31 posts. Please do not comment in the participants’ page threads so we can keep them clean.
    • Posted in this thread. People can comment here if they wish.

    Pages should contain at least 75% current Lilypad product (currently for sale in the store from either permanent designers or guest designers).

    FAQ

    1. Can we use the same papers to create the 7 strips, or does if have to be 7 different papers?
    You can use the same papers, but they must be a distinct 7 different layers.

    2. Can we use a template?
    You definitely can use a template...I modified a FDD template to create my sample page!!

    3. Can the strips have a shape like e.g. waves or chevrons?
    Yes they can

    4. Do we have to use photos
    No, but please keep in mind that the papers used are meant to be the elemental focal point

    5. I have been going through the challenges thus far (Jan 27) and have sent messages to those that haven't quite gotten the requirements...the biggest offender is not having the paper strips fill at least 50% of the layout!! Please make sure that your paper strips (there must be at least 7) fill at least 50% of your page!!

    Glad he's okay Amanda. You got home just in time. It's hard to believe that we're on the downside of the hill.

    Love your challenge, Nat!

    This is my first time for MOC7 to be first. Just hope my strips are correct.
    Thankyou for this challenge enabling me to get another page created for my 1981 Cruise album

    I am hoping it is okay as I used one paper twice and I can see in the sample ones shown one page has used the same paper twice.
