Scribble Shop Challenge

Pinterest

If you know me, you know I love a challenge! So when the folks at ScribbleShop.com offered me a box o’ goodies and the challenge to use as many as I could in ONE PROJECT…well, I was all like “It’s ON!”

Wanna see what they sent me?

And friends, I am happy to report that I used it ALL- even the candy wrapper, the box AND the tissue paper! I make a cute little mixed media book.

I used the cardboard and craft sticks and Mod Podge to make the covers. I used the metallic stamp pad to color it all, and dressed up the cover with the felt paisley stickers and the “Dress it Up” buttons.

To make the inner pages, I used some watercolor paper that I stenciled with some black ink using the DecoArt Stencils they sent. I added some color along the edges with the Prang Colored pencils, too.

I even used the tissue paper and candy wrapper with some Mod Podge to make a sheet of plastic-y paper that I used to create little pockets…which I attached with raffia.

Notice on the page above, I made my own stamp using those felt shapes. I “felt” pretty clever. (Yo-ho! Punny!) I bound the signatures with raffia, too!

I even used the glass gems to make little “feet” for the back cover, so when you lay it down it won’t scratch the back.

If you’d like a better look, you can see the whole book in this little video.


I’d like to thank ScribbleShop.com for the chance to participate. Please leave me a comment, and visit ScribbleShop here:

    Wow! I am soooo impressed!! I was right there with you when you opened your goody package. Truthfully, it didn’t really stir my ‘paper crafty me’ much. Obviously, there’s a reason you’re on your side of the screen and I’m not. You came up with a very cute and interesting little masterpiece. Awesome!
