    Hello everyone, I am super excited to be hosting Kim's designer challenge for the month. One of my faves from Kim's store are her paper clips, also called cliptastic and I have slowly snagged them all. This challenge will be a recipe challenge, featuring - you guessed it - paper clips/ cliptastic.

    Recipe:
    1. Use 3 papers (patterns and plains, but 3 at least, you may use more)
    2. Use 3 photos (you may have frames or strokes, at least 3, you may use more)
    3. Use 3 attachers, (at least) one per photo. 1 of these MUST BE A PAPERCLIP/CLIPTASTIC
    I simply layer mine over photos, but you may tweak them to appear as though they are threaded around the photo. I have washi and paperclips. You can include buttons, stitching, brads etc.
    4. Add your journaling and a date and anything else you want to, to make the layout your own.

    Some Ct Layouts to inspire you:

    Rules:
    Use at least 75% Kim Jensen Designs product (current or retired from TLP) to create your layout meeting the criteria listed above.
    Upload your layout to the Kim Jensen gallery. Please include your credits.
    Post your layout to this thread and link to your gallery post.
    Layouts must be new for this challenge and cannot be combined with other challenges.
    All layouts must be posted by 11:59pm PDT, July 31st, 2020.

    Please note:
    To make it easier for you Kim has graciously added her previously released cliptastic and paperclips into a fastener category in store, HERE and marked them 50% off for the whole of July. She also has them in 3 past store collabs - Treasured: the People, Lovey Dovey, and Family Matters (which was for iNSD 2015). There is also a more standard plastic clip in her School Zone Elements, predating the cliptastic stuff. So check your stash or shop and play along.

    Prizes:
    One layout will be chosen to receive a $10 coupon for Kim Jensen Designs’ shop!
    All other participants will receive a 20% off coupon for Kim Jensen Designs’ shop!
    You may enter multiple layouts to increase your odds of winning the $10 prize, but each scrapper will only receive one coupon.

    If you have any queries, or need to contact me - please tag me @Eyeore

    I love using little accents on my pages, and the Plastic Cliptastics are just perfect for that.

    Such great pages so far done for this challenge! I remembered that a while back that Kim and I put together some tutorials for how to make the clips look like they are pushing up from the underside of the papers they are "clipped to" and I thought I would link those up here for people.
