[Paperplay Challenges] Week 1 - New Year

Note: If you are looking for DYSU challenge - please keep scrolling :)

Hello again! Yep, second blog post for today. Are you feeling creative? How about a new PaperPlay Challenge? We are startling on our Week 1, and we are celebrating the New Year.

I have a card for you that's quite a big stretch. I was looking for fun ways to make fireworks, or a sentiment that said "auld lang syne" or "happy new year" but my stash didn't want to cooperate. In the last few weeks, I have also been hearing news of friends either expecting or have just given birth to their first kid. So lots of new lifestyle changes, new adventures, and new memories were lying ahead of them. It seems that these were sentences I was repeating in my Christmas & Happy New Year wishes. So I thought, why not make some baby cards?

Stamps: (Sewing Box Hugs) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Lemon Tart, Smokey Shadow; Vellum) Papertrey Ink

Ink: (Memento - London Fog) Tsukineko; (Perfect Match Pigment Ink - Fresh Snow) Papertrey Ink
Embellishments:  (Multi-colored Tiny Twinkles) Taylored Expressins; (Vintage Button - White & Cream Mix) Papertrey Ink; (Soiree Collection - Twine; Expressions Cushies Alphabet - Meringue ) Pink Paislee

I have not pulled out my favorite Waltzingmouse Stamps in a long time, so it was past overdue. In addition, I had bought a pack of vellum when I saw a few lovely cards in blog-land, but never opened the pack. Quite embarrassing how my stash is growing but not being used. Time to use what's home...


Here is hoping that this project fulfills the New Year. I guess we all get inspired in many different ways.

Please check out what the other PPC girls have prepared for this challenge. And welcome back :) We are looking forward to an exciting year!
