Now for my project I did not read the instructions very well. I read card for men with twine. I went off and a few days later sat down to do my project. The theme had turned itself into projects for men using twine in my head. So I made an mini notebook. Not a card! But it is for a man and uses twine! I tore some paper, stamped some clock faces and distressed everything with Walnut Stain distress ink. I then added a twine closure with a brad to wrap it around to keep it closed.
You can see it open below. I also inked up the edges of the papers too.
So now that I have shown you how unable I am to follow instructions make sure you head over to the blog to check out the DT’s projects – they all did fantastically with their man cards!
I created a clean and simple vintage wedding card. A mind boggling combo but you have to do what you are asked right?!
The lovely Prima papers took care of the vintage aspect. I then kept it very simple with a die cut stamped with a sentiment. My double delight is the two butterflies with a touch of bling.
Make sure to check out the rest of the design teams work, as always they have created beautiful work!
This week at Paper Play Challenges the theme is Chipboard – use chipboard on your project. We are kindly sponsored by Crafty Cutting. It is not actually my turn to play along with the design team this week, but I had this adorable mini album from Crafty Cutting so I just couldn’t resist!
I painted it pink and used some old Basic Grey papers to decorate it with, along with some flowers and embellishments. I have yet to add a title on it however. I covered the inside pages in a similar manner matting the BG papers in the centre. I also added some tags and extra non chipboard pages too. Very cleverly I forgot to take more pictures though :/
Make sure to check out the rest of the design teams creations, I love all the variety you can get with chipboard!
This week at Paper Play Challenges our challenge is called Animal Antics. We want you to use your little animal stamps! We are sponsored this week by Whiff of Joy.
I used a cute little raccoon stamp and die cut a circle from red card to let him peek out. The red card was embossed with a brick embossing folder and my sentiment was added on a banner. The raccoon was coloured with Inktense pencils.
Make sure to check out the rest of the design teams work and all the cute critters they have used!!
I don’t have any Whiff of Joy stamps so I made an image-less project instead. I altered a small notebook using green papers that just reminded me of spring so much!
Make sure to check out the rest of the design teams work, there are some gorgeous spring creations from them all!!
This week at Paper Play Challenges we are challenging you to recycle something or use something from around the house. We are kindly sponsored by Bunny Zoe Crafts.
I had fun using up all those things we crafters tend to hoard knowing they will come in useful at some stage. The hoarding has been justified on this card

This week at PaperPlay the theme is anything goes! Our kind sponsor this week is La La Land Crafts.
I unfortunately did not get to use one of the adorable images from La La Land Crafts as life just got in the way and there was no time for colouring etc. I did however alter some tiles by inking them to distress them and stamping on them….
