Papertrey July Blog Hop Challenge!

Hi Everyone! If you're here for the Papertrey Blog Hop, you already know that our challenge this month was to use office supplies on our cards ...

Hmmmmmm. Tags, Staples, Library and Filing cards .... sounds like a masculine card to me!


I used Heather Nichols' downloadable library card for this project (and can't wait for my stamp to ship after CHA!!) I thought Dawn's Top 10 set would make a fun addition ....


As you can see, Heart Prints also put in a guest appearance :0) The bottom paper clip is holding the strips and heart in place ...

I'm keeping this short - the hops just get LOOOOOOONGER AND LOOOOOOOOONGER - so you need to keep moving I'm guessing!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a GREAT evening!

:0)!

Materials: Cardstock, Ink, Heart Prints; Top 10 & Additions; Text Style Stamps, Twine, Tea Dye Duo - Papertrey Ink, Old Writing Stamp - Hero Arts; Stipple Stamp - All Night Media; Circular Stamp - Technique Tuesday; Label Punch - McGill; Eyelets - Making Memories
