The Use Your Paper Challenge
OK, so I’ve been doing some wedding invitations (I won’t post those til after the ceremony, in case someone decides to crash the party), and then, on Pintrest one day, I found a blog. This lady, Kristie, has a unique way of using up paper. She buys 6×6 inch pads, and uses the entire pad on as many cards as she can make, then will buy another one when she needs more cards. Her blog is here: Using up 6×6 Paper Pads
I took this challenge… and LOVE the results. I have always been a bit afraid to use a lot of patterned paper on a card, mostly because as a stamper, to NOT do a lot of stamping on a card seems wrong.. but I worked around my notions, and ended up with some really lovely cards that I am happy with. I have enough paper left from the two packs I used (They were big paper packs, so I did 1/2 a pack at a time). The pictures below show a sample of what I made.
I used a Penny Black paper pad, and a Recollections paper pad for the cards. I threw in a bit of SU paper for accents, when I couldn’t find the perfect paper to match. My biggest problem with this challenge, is to find a variety of card sketches that use up different sizes of paper.. I struggled with this.
Thanks for having a boo today 🙂
