Practical Scrappers Office Supply Challenge
This week at Practical Scrappers the challenge was to use any type of office supplies we wanted.
Again, this was a challenge that stretched my limit. I loved all of the ideas on practical scrappers but didn't want to copy them. The decorative paper clips were by far my favourite. If you haven't checked them out you definitely should take the time to do so.
I didn't have very many office supplies on hand and I wasn't sure how photo safe they would be for my scrapbook page. So this page doesn't actually use office supplies but I did alter scrapbooking supplies to look like office supplies.
First of all I decided to use "notebook" paper for my journalling box. I found a piece of grid paper from the DCWV grade school stack and cut out a journalling box using my Provocraft Graphically Speaking Cricut cartridge. Then I recreated manilla tags using paper from my stash and my Stampin Up tag corner punch. Then I used the Stampin Up small circle punch to make the "reinforcements" that go around the hole of the manilla tag. Finally I used my large hole punch to punch the centre hole.
I inked up everything to add dimension and this is the end result. I do quite like the look of the layout even if the look is office supply inspired as opposed to actual office supplies.
I apologize for the photo quality. I seem to be photo challenged today.
Recipe: Paper: Patterned paper from my stash (not sure of name), yellow, blue, and green (palm) cardstock are all Creative Memories, Bravo Burgundy Cardstock from Stampin Up, Grid Paper from DCWV Grade school stack Ink: Jumbo Java versamagic chalk ink Accessories: Cricut, Lyrical Letters cartridge for title, Graphically Speaking for Journalling box.
I am a SAHM to three beautiful girls. I am obsessed with scrapbooking and cardmaking. I just recently have started to dabble in digital scrapbooking. My software of choice is Creative Memories Storybook Creator Plus 3.0. My other interests are camping, hiking, running, photography, and spending time with my family and friends.
