Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Cuppa Cocoa Reminder

IMG_3729


There is still time to play for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Cuppa Cocoa




Like most paper crafters I have some some big time shopping and hoarding issues.  LOL It felt so good to type that out loud! I love patterned paper and I have a closet full of 12 x 12 sheets waiting to be used for scrapbooking and I have now managed too accumulate three plastic bins full of 6 x 6 pads that I could not live without. Sound familiar?   I am really trying to explore using patterned paper in my cardmaking, I love it when I see so many of you using it, what seems to be effortlessly too! Swoon ! So although it feels awkward, it does feel good to cut into these pads with the intention of making something pretty.  Wish me luck on this endeavor. I love the theme of the current Curtain Call Challenge  so I wanted to make another card. This one is more coffee inspired and once again I am using paper from my Persimmon pad. I am also submitting this card for the current Reverse Confetti SFYTT challenge.

Love this! The colors and layout of your card are perfect. And the pattern paper is awesome! Something I should try and use more of too! ;)

Fabulous card Tracey. I love all the design elements to it.

Good luck as you start using your patterned papers. I, too, have 4 overflowing baskets of 6x6 pads. Yikes!

Fabulous card--I do love how you have used those patterned papers on this card. I will cheer you on as you cut into those pads.

I think you are rocking the patterned paper. I'm thinking Archiver's closing is going to help me in not buying so many 6x6 paper pads! I've never bought any on-line...we'll see if I really manage to do that! This card is perfect..love the sentiment!
