Paper Crafts Practical Solutions

Happy Spring! Isn't this warm weather glorious? The flowers and trees are in bloom, the birds are singing, and the sun is shining. Sure, it seems a little early, but I will take spring weather any day!

Spring weather means driving the bug with the sunroof open, letting the fresh breezes blow while running errands to fun places like Barnes and Noble. I picked up a skinny vanilla latte and the newest publication from Papercrafts magazine called "Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters". It's chock full of inspiring storage ideas and lovely cards.

Cath's Moxie Fab blog has been featuring this magazine all week. Today's Moxie challenge was to come up with ways to use up scraps of pretty papers. I was inspired by a card from the magazine (p.101), and borrowed the sketch for my card today!

I had all kinds of little scraps from the Crate Paper Random collection, and decided to pair them up with some chipboard pieces. Look ma, no stamps!

{today's brew: kraft card stock (PTI), Crate Paper Random papers and chipboard, Martha Stewart lace edge punch, SU modern label punch, SU corner rounder punch, pearls}

  2. I always have left over paper form scrap booking, this is a good idea for the left overs.
