Happileigh Scrappin' is asking everyone this week to create some kind of shaped card or one that uses special folds. well when I read this, I went straight to my box of chipboard to see what kind of neat shapes I could find. I do like to make cards with them every once in a while, so pick up the chipboard albums when I see them at the craft stores. don't think I have yet made an actual album with one yet! ;) maybe some day.......
Being a Texas girl, this cute set of cowboy boots appealed to me, so out came the chipboard star. I covered the star with bandana paper from Flair Designs. I am sure it has long been retired, but you could probably find something similar at your local craft store. the paper was sanded to roughen it a bit, then sponged with vanilla craft ink. the edges of the star were also covered in the same ink. A star was punched from a handy dandy Starbucks coffee holder & then inked with the vanilla craft. buttons, some black yarn, and finally that wonderful red gingham ribbon were added to complete this project.
I do hope you will play along with us this week at Happileigh Scrappin'. Leigh has some adorable new images that she has just released and a cute clock that is free with any digi purchase. Buy 3 images from the store and you can choose ANY image for free as well. isn't that a great deal? Challenge winners also receive free images from Happileigh Scrappin', so what are you waiting for?
