My VSBN Pages

My planet's really messy right now.  That's because I participated in the June Virtual Scrapbooking Night in SplitCoast Stampers for 2 consecutive days.  There were a total of 10 challenges, and I was able to do 6 of them.  Six LOs in 2 days.  That's not bad at all.  That's the most I have ever made in two days.  And this time, I wanted to finish each page by the time the next challenge is announced.  I have a choice of doing the challenges at a later date, but I didn't want that.  I wanted the adrenalin rush.  The thought of creating the pages at the same time with other people from other countries was exciting.  I really enjoyed this VSBN.  The best among all the ones I've joined.

The pages had to be done in 2 hours or less, unless otherwise noted.  With no further ado, here are my pages from this weekend.

Here, we had to use only black and white in our pages, including the photos.

In this challenge, we had to create a layout to our favorite military person using 7 Cs: Cardstock bg, cut-out or chipboard letters, cropped shpaed photo other than circle, corner rounder, circles, clear embellishment or charm, and creative expression. 

 For this challenge, we were to do a page about somewhere we would like to be besides where we are at that time. We need to include the place we would be, who we would be with and why.

 In this one, we must create a page where we use our own handmade embellishments. I created the cloth flowers using a Japanese sewing template. I also made the owl on the right, using all but epoxy stickers.   

This one is quite hard. We had to do a stamping technique called "Rock & Roll", which I've never done before. You can see the tutorial here. Plus, the time limit is only 90 minutes! I did feel the pressure in this LO.

This is the last challenge I was able to make. In 90 minutes, we were to create a page using 'circles': circle brads, buttons, circle punches, simply cut circles and/or paper with circles. Also, use the wonderful assortment of 'Rub-Ons' somewhere on the page, or we can doodle to achieve a similar effect. And if we would like to kick it up a notch, we create a 'porthole' by using Vellum Paper cut into the shape of a circle somewhere on the page. The vellum can be used for journaling area or creating an actual porthole on the page. For my LO, I decided to make a big circle as the base.

It's my first time to make a LO that's not 12x12 square. If I had more time, I would have done other things. But I still like the end result.

At this time, let me say kudos to all the people involved in a very succesful VSBN in SplitCoastStampers.  You guys voluntarily spent your entire weekend, not to mention the time you spent in the planning stage, to help a lot of scrapbookers create LOs is really admirable.  I am looking forward to the next one!
