On FB I'm a sucker for "Big Box"/"Santa's Stocking" sales. Great value but sometimes papers etc. that I'm not sure of or wary of using. The stash ban I'm on (someone totalled up just how much I'd spent on crafting last year.....eek!!) means that I'm having to use old stuff.....happily I had just the right papers for 8 of the challenges.....could have done more but ran out of suitable photos.
So without further ado....
Two LOs about our win in the Pub quiz last week (one for me, one for Audrey).
First one uses Sassafrass Lass papers and the second a Basic Grey "Out of Print" page kit.
Next is a LO about Penny's ATC Challenge using Girl's Paperie products from the WeScrap April 2011 "Whimsy" kit.
Next up is Nathan, the fifth member of the Quiz team. This was a colour challenge (kraft/teal/mustard) and I used Sassafrass Lass papers again.
These two (for two separate but similar challenges) had me turning my craft area upside down..I knew I had some docrafts "Oriental" papers, but where were they? I finally found them at the bottom of one of my paper units. The co-ordinating brads and eyelets were much easier to find! I also used my new TH "Butterflight" die. The images are from the Samurai exhibition we visited in Aylesbury.
And here's where DH helped....I knew there was a font called "Samurai" but didn't have it on my laptop. I managed to find and download it but could I get it into Word to use it for my title? No. DH kindly downloaded it to his PC and printed it for me. It's printed on Washi paper that has been in my stash for years.
This was for a scraplift challenge and I used Club Scrap "Scholarship" papers and Pink Paislee "Old School" embellishments.
And finally..a before and after challenge using BG "Out of Print" papers, chipboard,glazed brads and layered stickers.
If you've reached here....well done....and you deserve a coffee!!
