There is no better way to start a Monday than with a little trouble – A Double Trouble Papercrafting Challenge that is!
Our challenge for the next two weeks (8/19-9/1) is round with the fun twist of adding anything to do with school, you can also get extra points in our prize draw by linking to our Challenge Partner The Joy of Sets. You can find all the details and link up your creations by visiting our challenge blog
I chose the vertical first row in the Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe board – Yellow, Square & Plaid. My card is a 4.25 square – I layered a stitched square with a yellow & white checked B&T. I have had the Crafting Shapes thin cuts for some time, but not had the chance to use them until now. I had fun layering the shapes that I thought you’d find on a teachers desk on a large circle. I used the ruler where I would normally use some ribbon. I thought my sentiment would be perfect, because who hasn’t asked “is it the weekend yet?”
Don’t forget to link up and join the fun…everyone needs a little Double Trouble in their life!
I’m popping in today with a reminder of Double Trouble’s Challenge using a School Days Theme while teaming up with the sketch provided by Try Stamping on Tuesday, if you include a bookmark on your card you get extra points with Twisted Sister and will stay out of detention!
Here’s the Sketch we had to use:
I borrowed both the You’ve Got Class and School Kids stamp sets from my friend Debi…I love both of these stamp sets! They are available for just a few more days as the You’ve Got Class special ends at the end of September. You can find all the details here.
I rotated the sketch (nothing says you can’t do that) and stamped a strip of Willow with the ABC stamp and the Lemon was stamped with the ruler. Everything was built on a base of cranberry (retired) which I stamped my “Back to School” sentiment. The little girl was stamped and colored with Copic Markers, die cut and I added a mini-clothes pin and attached it to the string…she also is my bookmark!
I hope you’ll give both of these fun challenges a spin…I’d love to see what you come up with.
