Alison's Challenge

Sorry everyone Alison sent this to me and I fell asleep at the wheel, so here it is Alison's Challenge for the month! Have fun I LOVE this Technique!
Hi again everyone!

Well this challenge has been a challenge for me! Mainly because I picked my material that I thought I would use and then packed up ALL my scrapbooking supplies for our upcoming move. So when it came time to "create" all I had was two pieces of patterned paper, a piece of cardstock I had to "borrow" and letters. Lucky for me a found a scrap of ribbon and that mess stuff kicking around in the back of a drawer!

My challenge is totally fitting because like I said I am packing up the house for our move.

Packing Tape Transparencies!

Print you picture off on plain paper from your printer (Robyn - can you confirm or deny that ink jet doesn't work - my page didn't work but Kirsten's laser printer page was fineRobyn's edit- I do believe that laser jet is your best bet on this project!). Cover the picture with packing tape, slightly overlapping then let it soak in water only for a minute or two. Carefully peel back the plain paper and you will see that the image remains on the packing tape. Picking at it can give a nice aged look but be careful where you pick as it will create a see through "hole" in the picture. Set aside to dry, trim and have at'er.

Have a look at the finished project I came up with. I am still thinking about my "wishes" so my journalling card is blank for the time being.

So next month you guys will be in for a treat as by good chum Kirsten will coming up with a challenge for you all while I am busy unpacking. Fasten your seat belts because she loves to think OUTSIDE the box! Most importantly - HAVE FUN!

Spring Time on the Island

Spring is only a few days away - despite the winter-like weather we have been experiencing here on the Island! And with spring, comes the birds! I love looking out to see birds in the yard, and have already had some brave Robins come around!!

I challenge everyone to create a card or layout with a bird on it!

My card was created with the gorgeous Crate Paper kit available in the store, and the buttons are American Crafts, also in the store!
The music notes are hand drawn, and the stamp is by Studio G.

March Sketch

I completely lost track of time, but here it is the March sketch from Pagemaps!

I think I get one more chance and then the DT is taking away my decision privileges for this. They say I scare them!

Here is my take on the sketch.
Please e-mail to blog@thepapercrate.ca or post in the Projects Gallery!
Have a great week
