Way to go with HIMCR

It’s the 2nd Saturday of the month which means it’s Super Scraps Saturday (SSS) with challenge #93 at Hiding in my Craft Room.  This week we are sponsored by Scrapbook Pal, who is generously offering up a $25 gift certificate to the lucky winner.  All you gotta do is use your scraps, and I know everyone has some to use up!!

I decided to use up a bunch of border strips.  They’ve been sitting in my organizer since December, waiting to either be used or filed.  So I used them!!

strips

As soon as I decided I wanted to use these up I knew I wanted to create a striped background, and eventually it evolved into a weave.  I used a blank A4 card front as my base and started working with the strips and my ATG.   (JUST A NOTE: I used a total of 20 strips to make my front… you can see exactly what I did below)  Once I covered up the entire card front…

woven

…I trimmed it down to an A4 size and glued down any loose ends.  After flipping through my images, I settled on Skater Ian by The Greeting Farm.  I have to say that I have only one or two TGF stamps and a handful of images that were gifted to me, and this is definitely a company I need to invest some major spending $$ in!!  So this is how the card came out…

93-SSS

PP border strips by Pebbles Inc. (Lil’ Buddy collection), CS by American Crafts (ocean, honeycomb), image by The Greeting Farm, sentiment by SU (Starring You)

 …I freehand cut out the star because AGAIN, I needed a star larger than 1/2″ and I can’t do that without using the cricut… so freehand is easier and much faster.  I added some stitching to help it stand out.  This sentiment is actually NOT what I wanted… I had a sentiment in mind but couldn’t find it in the drawer.  답답해!!  So frustrating!!  But luckily I found this one and it fit just right.  =o)  I have to say though, I am VERY sad that I had to cover up so much of what I weaved!!! lol…

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you come join us for Super Scraps Saturday #93 at HIMCR!!
