Well hello there stamping friends! I decided to get my little broom out to dust off the cobwebs (and a wee bit of glitter) from my blog...FINALLY! If anyone has stuck with me this long, you might remember that I took a little (OK, a LONG) break back in July of last year. My husband and I moved into our new home and between that and work, life got pretty hectic. Sadly, crafting moved to the back burner.
Flash forward to a brand new home and a freshly painted stamp studio. I'm so excited to finally be back at The Paper Players hosting the first challenge of 2015. I'm trying to get back into the swing of things and am super excited to be creating with these amazing ladies once again. We are also welcoming our new DT members and Guest Designers this week, so please stop by and say hello. This week, I have a fun Theme Challenge to share: "Everything Old is New Again". The details of the challenge are pretty simple: simply create a project with a recycled or re-purposed item(s).
To create my card, I used a holiday gifted box of Ferrero Rocher chocolates (yes, some are missing...thanks to my hubby...and maybe me. *wink*), a Birchbox which held my cosmetic goodies from my November subscription and some matches. Isn't this a random mix of re-purposed items? I really wanted to try to challenge myself with this one. After not creating for a while, it was kind of fun to just look for inspiration around the house to get that creative mojo working.
I used the new One Tag Fits All stamp set and coordinating punch. I'm NOT going to list everything I have used on the card because honestly, this card was all about being creative and having fun. I wasn't wrapped up in the "ingredients" of the card. I thought this would be perfect card to use paired with a candle (and maybe some chocolate) for a gift to a friend. Pretty cute, right?
There have been many changes since I have last ventured into the blogging world. I won't go into all the nitty-gritty right now, but I absolutely have to share a photo of this little nugget. This is Miss Sophie. Isn't she ADORABLE?? She has been taking over the house since she arrived last month. She is 5 months old and as sassy as they come!
Please join us over at The Paper Players! The challenge closes on Friday, January 9th, 2015 at Noon (PST). Stop by and say hello to the Design Team. Thank you so much for stopping by to visit today. Happy Stamping! :)
