paper challenge

I mentioned yesterday that I have given myself a personal challenge . . . 
to reduce my paper collection!

My challenge is to choose 3 patterned sheets of paper
 and make a minimum of 6 greeting cards.  

Here are the sheets of paper I started with:


And here are the finished cards:
(sorry, my lighting wasn't great so the colours are washed out)









6 greeting cards, 2 mini cards with envelopes and 4 tags found their way out of these sheets of paper!

I found it to be a great way to relax, put some of my supplies to good use and practice new techniques.

These are the papers for my next challenge.

Thanks for stopping by,

  4. Your cards are beautiful! My mom always liked the saying, whoever dies with the most fabric wins". For me it's paper - thanks for the idea! That's not a game I want to win....
