Marisa, I love the idea of doing a weekly list because I don't actually get to do the "a day" part usually. smiley

And, of course, I have to suggest art journaling type ellies- splats, rub-ons, word art...


I am so enjoying the paper a day challenge. I hope we do it again real soon. So many possibilities for techniques or simply revisiting the same theme with a different color scheme.

I absolutely would LOVE to do an element a day challenge in May. I enjoy the suspense of waiting each day for the next theme, but a weekly list would work for me as well, especially if it makes participating easier for others.

I love the idea, but prefer elements per week, cause I've noticed that it takes me a lot of time and some days I don't have that.
Great idea's Holly!

I would love this!!! releasing a weekly list would be better in my opinion too

I love this idea. I think an element a day is great challenge. I do find myself posting two papers at a time. but if that's not a problem then I'm in with this one too!! Holly has done a great list and many of then could be subdivided. Where in the list would flowers come?

How could I forget FLOWERS?

We must do FLOWERS!

I definitely prefer getting a list of elements to create within the space of a week. I have a feeling that if we're supposed to create things from scratch, the elements will take a bit more research and effort than papers. Some days I have a fair amount of time, whereas others I don't have much if any at all.

Yay! Let's do it. But I ditto everyone else's weekly preference.

Maybe we can out some different flowers in the list: realistic, paper?
Leafs elements are not in the list yet.
Journal cards?

We need tags, branches, swrils and eyelets too smiley

oooh that sounds fun! smiley I like the list so far including everyone's suggestions smiley
I didn't see anyone mention "Flairs" unless that's covered under something else...?


This sounds like a lot of fun!

It sounds GREAT. I'm not sure how often I can participate, but I will jump in when I can. My grant writing class is still in session, and my design class just started today. Yikes! As for more suggestions.perhaps chain? Wire? jewels?

What a great idea. I would prefer a weekly list, so I can finish a few easier elements in one day and will have enough time for the more difficult. I think I will stick to the same color-scheme as for the papers, so I get a complete Kit at the end of may (to use and to give away of course.)

I think there should be some repetition (Flower, brad, button...) Because there are always 3 o 4 of those at least pr kit, what do you think?

Never done this before but I really want to try in May.

Some of these I'm not sure how to create but I'll do my best. I'm sure loving this site.

Everyone has some great ideas for this event.
