Just Us Girls


Happy Saturday!  It's time for another fun Just Us Girls Challenge with Angie as our wonderful hostess.  Angie has picked OFF THE EDGE for Trend Week this week.   This is basically taking something off the edge of you card.  Either stamp off the edge or put your images off the edge.

Here is what I came up with:


I used this great flower from Unity Stamp Co.  I colored with Tombo Markers, cut it out then just adhered on the card in the corner but off the edge of the card. 

Super fun there are so many possibilities.  Come join us over at JUST US GIRLS to play along.

Just Us Girls



Happy New Year!  We are back with brand new Just Us Girls Challenges.  This month we have 2 fantastic guest designers as well so be sure to check them out.

Sue is our hostess this week.  She picked "LEFTOVERS" as our theme.  Think...  What is left on your crafting desk that you can use.

On this card the background was left over from a card I made a few week's back.  I think I stamped that background a few times.  And the circle was left over from when I was testing a new Unity Stamp set called Circle of Friendship using the Gina K Wreath Builder templates.
