Hello friends! Can you believe its June already? Surprised me, too! LOL Today starts a new challenge over at the Craft Hoarders Anonymous blog. I really had alot of fun making this project using products from our sponsors - Stencil Girl Products and WorldWin papers. Here is a bit about Challenge #9 and our sponsors.
Use some sort of "fun fold" on your project. You can make a fun fold card, a pop-up card, an explosion box, or other type of project that makes use of folded cardstock or paper. 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!

Here is a layout I created using a StencilGirl stencil and WorldWin 12 x 12 Cardstock.
For the fun fold on this layout, I made rosettes using my Scor-pal and a hot glue gun! Its a fun technique! I just cut strips of the patterned paper to 2", 1 1/2" and 1" wide and 12" long. Then along each strip I scored all the way across at 1/4" intervals. I glued the ends together using Scor-tape and put some hot glue right in the center and pressed down to create the rosette.
I started with a piece of 12 x 12 Kraft WorldWin paper for the base of my layout. Then I cut the next layer to 11 1/2 x 11 1/2". Using Stepping Stone #1 Stencil, I applied a thin layer of Modeling Paste in two places on the paper. After it dried, I used a paper distresser on the edges of this paper and layered it onto the Kraft base. Here are a few close-ups......
I had so much fun making creating this layout. Some new and old techniques plus some fun products!
