Anything but a card at The Outlawz.

Hello my friends and a happy Tuesday,
I am away for a week so hopefully if you are able to read this post all has gone according to plan.





I was the lucky one to choose the inspirational photo for this colour challenge at The Outlawz and the twist is 'anything but a card'. You need to use all the colours and make anything except a card...tags, boxes, notebooks, frames... in fact any paper project.


Our sponsor this month is Enchanted Design Studio and some of he DT have used her images, so we would love you to come and see what we have all made.







This is what I have made. I started with this paper notepad from our local stationary shop and transformed it into this.



All the paper was from my stash, and the beauty is you don't need large pieces, so using up all those small pieces is great.

I cut a piece of card - recycled. I keep all the pieces that come with embossing folders, dies etc. I then covered that front and back of this piece and also of the backing card of the pad. The blue strip at the top holds all the pieces together and then just decorate.

The fancy diecut is a Marianne Design die.
The image is called Enchanted Sparrows, coloured with Distress Inkpads.
The sentiment is a freebie from Hannelie cut with a Nellie Snellen label die.

These are such handy little gifts to make and don't require too much effort. I always like to have a few in stock, but have run out of my supply, so need to work at it again.

Entering this in the following challenges:
Scribble and Scrap #42...Anything goes
Craft my Life challenge...Anything goes, but No card
Crafty Cardmakers #136...Wings
Not just cards...Anything goes
Mema's Crafts challenge...Use a die or punch

Love Ursula

Just thought I'd mention that the theme at Open Minded Crafting challenges is "Recycle Something". This project would be perfect for it. Here is the link: http://open-mindedcraftingfun.blogspot.ca/
