September Papertrey Blog Hop

 
This would be my first blog hop participation of any kind ever so please be patient. I'm sure there are tech issues I won't be able to resolve but it's already been fun learning..



This card was created using the flap from the shipping box for the background. The blue strips are the paper wrapper from the stamp set Take A Bough, intentionally cut unevenly for what my kids call 'artsy effect'. Loved playing with Winter Swirls. It's a very forgiving design!


Here's Winter Swirls again. This time the snow is made by wadding up the packing tissue and then gluing it down on scrap cardstock. The fence is strips of are made from the packing box and I 'wired' them together with waxy flax.

The witch is a gift box. She's made on the plastic box the stamp sets and cd cases come in. Her nose is the plastic packaging for the half inch punch came in. No stamping but lots of fun! 

If you actually got here and any of this worked, THANK YOU! I promise the artwork, the tech work and the photography will improve. Best thing about being at the bottom - no where but up!
