Happy 4th July!


Hi everyone …. ok so it is only April ... I do know that hehe!

Two weeks ago Danielle challenged the Prettie girls to make a non standard sized card. Anything but an A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") sized card! Well most of my cards I make are non standard and technically if I did make a standard size card it still wouldn’t be that size because the standard size card here in Australia is slightly different to that of the USA …. anyway have no fear I didn’t cheat hehe!

I figured a scrapling was a non standard size right so that is what I went with for my card today … I love being able to use those scraps that I have created when I have cut down a piece of card stock to create a card.

For my scrapling today I used one of the new stamp sets that Paper Pretties will be releasing this Friday 1st May. This set is called Lady Liberty …. isn’t she adorable . I told you the other day I would be using this red & blue star designer paper again and so I did … it is perfect for this set. I used the petit oval nestabilities to create my layers for the main image.

Don't forget to check out what the rest of the Prettie Girls created for this challenge:

On Friday May 1st Paper Pretties will be having their monthly Stampin In Your Jammies party!! The party starts at 6pm CDT and will last until 9pm. We will be issuing a challenge every hour so be sure to come and play along!!
