Lawnscaping Challenge # 63

Happy, happy, happy August! We are back with another challenge and this one is challenging and FUN!!!!

One layer ONLY???!!! Whaaaattttt? Yep - create something using ONLY ONE LAYER! :)

We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp! The lucky winner will get a $25 gift certificate!

Our guest designer this month is the sweet and uber-talented Annette Witherspoon!

Hi everyone! My name is Annette Witherspoon and I am thrilled to be designing for the Lawnscaping Challenge this month!! I’ve been married to my husband John for nearly 10 years and I am a mommy to two precious kids who keep me on my toes. Before joining mommy world, I was a public relations professional for 10 years.

I am primarily a card maker who occasionally makes 3D and altered projects. I started dabbling in paper crafts shortly after receiving a handmade wedding card. I fell in love with the idea of creating one-of-a-kind cards made straight from the heart. Three years ago, I ramped up my crafting endeavors when I started my blog,, which is a play on my real name. A is the first letter of my first name, and Spoon is the last half of my last name.

I currently design for A Jillian Vance Design and Eyelet Outlet. I have also designed for Love My Tapes, Stampendous, Pink by Design, Frosted Designs challenge blog and Joy’s Life. I also wrote for ScrapStreet Magazine, an online scrapbooking and papercrafting magazine. I am honored to have been published in Paper Crafts Magazine and Scrapstreet Magazine.

Here is her stunning card:

  1. Such a HARD challenge but the DT has come up with some awesome projects!

  2. Awesome creations, ladies!! I LURVE OLC's!!!!

  3. One layers are my Achilles heal!! Lol! The DT did incredible!!! Wow! Totally inspired to try another one layer card....for fun! Ha ha! Amazing!

  4. Awesome inspiration, Girls! I love making OLC's
    But they are not as good as your inspirations.

    Perhaps, I will be a little more ambitious this time around and try masking.

    I have a doubt though, are embellishments not allowed? Like Enamel Dots or Pearls?


  5. These are such cute projects! Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. I'm sorry! Submission 22 should be deleted. I resubmitted because this link was no good.

  7. Oh, this was a tough challenge. But so much fun! Great inspiration from the DT!
