Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far! Michele here, and today I challenge you to use your scraps! I don't hang on to teeny tiny scraps but I do have a box where I keep leftover paper scraps. This challenge was a great reminder to me to go into that box and use some of those scraps up!
Use Your Scraps
Let's say hello again to our guest designer for the month of June:
"I have been crafting for all of my life and was a decorative painting instructor for many years before I started doing paper crafts. I live in Thunder Bay, Ontario Canada with my youngest teenage daughter and our two dogs. We love to read and spend time outdoors and I can't seem to ever have enough things to do, lol!
My favourite stamps are too many to name and I love to color with Copics, Prismacolor pencils and watercolor and I am dying to drag out my oils and acrylic paints. I also create jewelry in my spare time, ha ha ha ha (what spare time) :)
My blog is odetopaper.blogspot.ca where you can see inspiration for a few design teams :)"
Here is a card I made based on Sketch #177 over at CAS(E) This Sketch. I punched out butterflies from my paper scraps to create this quick card:
Please take a look at what the other design team members have created below! Thanks for joining in our challenges, I look forward to seeing what you create.
I like to use my scraps to die cut shapes and elements to make cards. My Cuttlebug and steel dies make this a breeze.
I challenged myself to only use scraps sitting out on my desk. The flower had been stamped and colored for a previous project and left because I didn't like it. The yellow card base was made for another card but I had changed my mind. The patterned paper was leftover and the black washi tape was already sitting on my desk. Even the sentiment was a stamp set I hadn't put back yet.
The winner of Challenge #105 is #30 Lillian A.!!
Congratulations! Please send an e-mail within two weeks to firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your prize.
