You can share some folding techniques that are perfect for scrapbook layouts or mixed media pieces. Create a mini album with a folded binding. Fold some ribbon to make pleats. De-hoard those supplies and show us your folds....paper folds that is! You can find the challenge rules at the top of the page at Craft Hoarders Anonymous Blog. Our sponsors for the month of June are Stencil Girl Stencils and World Win Papers.
This week I decided to make a tag. I've been wanting to make one of the huge tags measuring 5" X 10 1/2". I started out with the tag and it felt a little flimsy so I glued a piece of cardboard from some packaging I saved and then a piece of World Win Paper card stock to the base and got started. I decided to use Graphic 45 By the Sea paper collection as well. My Rosette is folded and the edges inked with Distress ink and then I found this old button cover in my hoard from long ago and decided it would work perfectly on top. My little bird (sea gull) is made using a Stencil Girl Stencil and moulding paste. While the paste was still wet I sprinkled on some glitter; you know me, I love me some glitter! I pulled out some cheesecloth (also from my hoard) and the lace is new. Then I started fussy cutting the shells and signs and the sailor girl and I edged them all with distress ink as well.
This was my first time working with Stencil Girl Stencils and WorldWin Papers and I have to tell you the quality of all the items is super! The card stock and papers are heavy weight and top notch and the stencils are perfect for using the moulding paste. They are nice and thick and don't give a lot, making them wonderful to work with! Below is a little tidbit about each company and they will be sponsoring us for the whole month of June! Also I have added a photo of the prize for this challenge.
