Hello blogland! It's roasting in NJ - 104.6 in my backyard...in the shade! Even the birds aren't splashing in the water fountain today, and the pool water is like bath water. So this heat calls for quick crafts, and I have a new one to share with you. One of the new challenges at Crafting by Designs is Use Your Scraps, and our challenge is to create a card or layout using the first 3 pieces of patterned paper scraps and one piece of solid scrap you see in your scrap pile, and make stripes out of them on a white or black base.
Easy peasy! I used a Martha Stewart corner punch on the end of each piece for a little added interest, added a digi stamp from The Cutting Cafe which had been tinted with Lindy's Stamp Gang startburst stain, and a piece of seam binding that has been dyed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Tibetan Poppy. This card took less than 5 minutes - it took longer to tie the bow :) So come on, get those scraps out and use them!
