Random Prompt Challenge-April 15

Happy Thursday, yall! Jamie here to bring you this week's batch of goodness and the Random prompt!

This week, we're challenging you all to hand stitch on your layouts! Hand stitching is one of my favorite techniques because it can add some great dimension to your pages. So get out your needle and thread (or trusty pen) and have at those pages! And here's a wee bit of inspiration (Monica took that literally this month) to get your mojo flowing.

Monica's "What's in Your Name?"

On this layout about my doggie, Dinky, I stitched around the edges of the clouds to help them stand out better.

Jamie's "Sweet Pea"

I didn't do a lot of stitching on this, just a bit for embellishing. But I think it really adds to the farm vibe of this layout.

Jamie's "Proud Mama"

Don't have a needle and thread? Here's an alternative I like to call "faux stitching". I simply drew in the stitching with my trusty Zig! pen.

We can't wait to see what yall come up with!!

Submission Instructions:
You may submit a maximum of TWO projects by the challenge deadline and will get one chance at the prize for each entry. Your project must be NEW as of the challenge date & must meet the criteria posted by the challenge hosts to be eligible to win. To submit your layout, add the direct URL for your layout to InLinkz. He’ll be at the bottom of each challenge post. You can link to your uploaded project in a gallery like Two Peas in a Bucket, a Photobucket account, or a post on another blog. Just make sure the URL takes us directly to your project and not just your blog homepage or whole gallery.

The challenge winner will be chosen by a random number generator. Every challenge winner will get a special “Challenge Winner” blinkie to use in their signatures on messages boards or blog posts. We will pool all the challenge entries and do a prize drawing with the random number generator at the end of the month. We may also occasionally have smaller prizes for mini-giveaways, so keep checking back!

If you have questions about any of this or have a problem using the blog, e-mail us at

Be sure to check back later this week for more inspiration from the Design Team!
