Stamps R Us Challenge


I am a member of the Stamps R Us blog group and this was my month to host the challenge. The challenge this month is to create anything but a card! It can be a scrapbook page, altered item, bag or basket, sewing project...........just whatever............as long as it's not a card. Anyone can play and anyone can WIN, WIN, WIN!!!!! So come on over to the Stamps R Us Challenge Blog and play along.

I used a tutorial on You Tube to find out how to make the little bag I have here. I think it was listed as a 12 X 12 box from Chickn' Scratch. These are super simple to make and will actually hold quite alot of items or a cute gift. I have also covered an "adult" composition book and a "baby" composition book. This was a "FIRST" for me as I've never attempted anything like this. I think it came out ok though. I like the "adult" one better I think. The "baby" one is pretty plain. The papers I used were from a Martha Stewart paper pad. The "Journal" letters are chipboard that I covered with some of the patterned paper. I also added one of the little puffy flowers at the top.

Go check out the Stamps R Us Challenge blog and enter your project today. You have until the end of the month to enter but you may want to do it now so you don't forget!! Be sure and sign up as a follower too. We'd love to have you.
Thanks for stopping by.....................

Lynn, congrats on your CAS tastic win - I loved that card! Mind you, I love what you have done here, too. These projects are fabulous. I love the fact that they stand alone separately, but are all tied together with color. I love the bag idea. I have to try that.
thanks so much for inspiring me to go off and try some 3D projects.
hugs
