I had a very nice weekend and hope that the same is true for you! I had a semi-productive day yesterday. Not quite as productive as the rest of the weekend but we all need a little down time right?! I did manage to get some cards made yesterday before I headed out with Heather to do some errands. We went to Bed, Bath & Beyond and the mall so that she could return some stuff. We stopped back at my house so that we could take the old wall unit over to her house. My dad has a truck and boy does that come in handy! After that I came home and puttered around a bit and then watch the end of A Good Day to Die Hard and the beginning of Divergent. Then I decided that It was time to get the rest of my stuff done before trying to get to bed early, ha! Back to work today, maybe I’ll move my office?! Maybe not! LOL!
Before we get to today’s post I wanted to take a minute to remind you that beginning tomorrow you can start ordering from the 2015 Occasions Catalog and also qualify for Sale-A-Bration rewards! Do you have your lists ready?! I’m sure that you do! 🙂
After a little vacation the Paper Players are back with their first challenge of 2015 and it’s a theme from Anne Marie…
I went with a recycled and repurposed item on my project. My card base is Whisper White Card Stock and the entire front is covered in a piece of Kraft Card Stock. On top of that I adhered a piece the Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum to a piece of Very Vanilla and that is then adhered to the base. My recycled/repurposed item is the denim banner that I cut out with the Party Pennants Bigz L Die. Some Fast Fuse adheres it to the vellum. My greeting is form the Four You Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Kraft and cut out with a die from the Circle Card Thinlits. I used the Butterfly Thinlits to cut out the butterfly and the Hello You Thinlits for the “you”, both from Kraft. The Butterfly is adhered with Glue Dots and the “you” is adhered with Crystal Effects. I fluffed up the butterfly wings and that completes the card. I do love the look of the denim with the gold and Kraft, it makes for a fun combination don’t you think?! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players Theme challenge! Thank you so much for you time today and I wish you all a Magnificent Monday! 🙂
