WOYWW#124... and a Hope You Can Cling To challenge


It's Wednesday again and you know what that means. Yep, What's on Your Workspace Wednesday (WOYWW), hosted by the lovely Julia-across-the-pond. Get a peek at workspaces around the globe by visiting her HERE. (My link insertion from What's on Tap Tuesday is still open below if you'd like to add a link here, too. *smile*)

On my desk this week is a hot mess of The Girls Paperie (GP) products. I got them as a kit from either Crafty Steals or Scrapbook Steals. Both sites are worth checking out because they have great daily deals. The box of GP goodies has been open behind my desk waiting for the right time to organize it (yeah, right) and every time I pass the box I spy a cute pink paper with a scalloped border of text. Knowing that it most likely won't become a scrapbook page since I'm the only girl in this house, I decided to chop it up into 4" x 5-1/4" blocks and use it for a whole mess of cards.

I used the first block on the card below. It's for another Hope You Can Cling To challenge (HYCCT1102 - which inspired me to use lingerie on a card). I've had this Stampin Up stamp set (Laundry Notes) for a while, so it's probably retired, but I love the slip and the little sentiment along the side that says "Slipping You a Note." First, I stamped the slip directly on the block paper. Then, paper pieced it on a floral GP paper and set it on top of the first image. I added a GP die cut heart that I embellished with lacy ribbon and a clear Making Memories Vintage Finding button (that's been sitting on my desk for weeks.) Finally, I added to the sentiment with some GP word stickers.


That's it. Hope you're having fun with your own hot messes! Thanks for dropping in.....

Ya know, I have, well, A LOT of paper with shaped edges, and even though I cut up all my OTHER 12x12 papers, the shaped edges of these has stumped me. But NOW I see how BRILLIANT it is to use them this way, too! OMG, the possibilities!!! Thanks!

Ah Cindy - perfect use for that scalloped paper - isn't it gorgeous. You can so make a beautiful card. Just gazing at those lovely wood mounts makes me wistful. Where do you keep the stamps then???

Those papers and the things you have created from them are great - such a very good use of those 12x12 kits.
