WT39 - Join us for the new Ways to Use It Challenge!
Ok Ladies....time for another challenge. I don't know who's going to have time to do this though. It is soooo busy getting ready for Christmas or any other holidays you have and I know everyone is busy checking out this month's incredibly awesome Dirty Dozen Gallery! I know that I haven't stamped in a week! and am having a major withdrawal...hope to find some time later tonight.
Anyways, I'm making this challenge an easy one...this week try to find ways to use Printed Paper in your work. You can make anything you wish and use the SU designer series paper or just plain any printed or scrapbooking papers you have on hand. These papers can add a fun, quick and easy way to jazz up your work. Have fun and don't forget to put WT39 in your keywords section when you upload and post a link back to this thread. As always, there are no time limits and feel free to add some tips or techniques in this thread as well.
Okay, I technically did this before you issued the challenge--but after midnight, so it was Thursday! It's my current mission in life to use up my patterned paper stash. It's embarassing how much I have. I won't share just how many Stacks I've purchased in the past year... sigh...
The back cover and inside is also covered with black cardstock, and a strip of the black and white floral paper. You can't see it, but a charm is on the end of matching ribbon that is strung through the book to act as a placeholder. I also handwrote various verses about prayer and prayer quotes throughout the book.
Yes, Anna's gallery is awesome!! Wish I had one like that!! I have some "catching up" to do, so I will be back later with ALL the posts that I'm going to have!! I also have TONS of paper to use up as well!! So I'll see what I can come up with! THANKS!!
Okay I got another one done and this is perfect timing for this challenge since I had decided it was time to use up some of this paper before my SIL hands me over some more for Christmas, I just know she will! She hasn't learned the real definition of ENOUGH yet! Man some of this stuff is so ugly I wish I had a cat so I could line its litter box with it, Iím serious too! Maybe it was a dollar store clearance!
Sometimes there are paper designs I don't think I'll use included in the 12x12 "Stacks" I get on sale at Joanns, so I donate those papers to a local non-profit education organization that provides classes for youth earning their GED. Specifically, I give to the Teen Parent branch of the organization.
