Tic Tac Toe !! :)

Good morning paper lovers! :) 

I am SO impressed with the layouts inspired by Jana's fabulous sketch! Amazing!

Are you ready for another fun challenge?

It's tic-tac-toe week!


Just create a project with 3 elements in a row. Lots of choices!

We are so excited to welcome a new sponsor to The Paper Variety this week!

Birds of a Feather Kit Co. has provided us with this beautiful prize:

Papers, die cuts, Thickers, Glimmer paint, ribbon, rub-ons... oh my!
Be sure to stop back Friday for more information on this fabulous company.

Until then, we have some design team inspiration for you! :)


Make a layout - Baby Theme - 2 Flowers


I love Shannon's signature style of black and white outlines, mix of patterned papers, and fun designs! This page let's the photo of her and her 'little man' shine :)

Tag - Bird - Spring Colors


Jan said, " I hand stitched a bird cage for one of the new KI Memories Puffies.  Added an SRM sticker sentiment along with a two little twine bows and a ribbon loop.  I plan on using this tag on a gift bag."

Tag - Spring - Bird


Mindy said, "For the tic-tac-toe challenge, I made a tag...  then I didn't know what to do with my purdy tag, so I made a layout!"

Layout - Bird - Scallops


Patti said, "I took this photo the morning my hubby and I were waiting for a bus to take us up to Glacier Point at Yosemite National Park in California. It was a personal goal of mine to hike in Yosemite by my 50th birthday, and my hubs helped to make it all happen for me. This was a very meaningful lo for me to create. :)"

Tag - Bird - Spring Colors


Tessa said, "Spring to me is warmer sunshine, pretty blue skies, and green all around :)"

Card - Scallops - Stamped Sentiment/Image


I cut my "little chick" isn't so little - by the time I cut the nest and egg shell on my cricut he measured over 5 inches! So I ended up making this 5 1/2" square card. The sentiment really should say "Mother Nature.. you crack me up" as snow is in our forecast for the next week. Yikes!

Our design team member and friend Melissa is taking a little break from The Paper Variety to take care of her family (miss you Mel!) and until her return, we will be featuring a guest designer on Team B weeks.

This week, we want to welcome Jamilie!
She used Layout-Baby-2+ Flowers


Isn't this precious?! Please make sure you stop by Jamilie's blog and leave her some love!

Now, it's your turn! Upload your tic-tac-toe projects below for a chance to win this Birds of a Feather kit !


Have a great rest of the week!

  25. I kind of cheated today...I'm using an old project because I literally just got home from a whirlwind vacation. I can't wait to try making something from each of these tic tac toe options - how fun! I'm definitely going to share this idea with folks because I think it's brilliant for when you feel stuck! I might have to create a couple of bingo cards for me to have in my layout guide.

    Can't wait to see everyone's projects too! I love to learn from other's creativity.

  31. Is this contest closed? I guess I'm in the same boat as Denise. I didn't think it closed until this evening. :( I finished my layout and it is posted on my blog at: http://scraplifterdesigns.blogspot.com/2011/03/lets-scrap-3-23-11-tpv-sketches-in.html
