Welcome to the Scrapbox Challenge!!


I don't know about you, but my scrapbox is running over and it seems like most of the times when I make a card, I end up getting a brand new piece of designer paper out. So for this reason I just decided to start a new challenge right here on my blog,

The Scrapbox challenge

to get myself, and maybe some of you, to use up all those pretty paper scraps. Once a week I will challenge myself (and hopefully some of you) to use designer papers from the scrapbox only. This is going to be just for the fun of it, so I won't have a design team and I won't have any regular sponsors.

I will post a challenge every weekend, and if you'd like to play along just add your name and card with mr. linky below so I can come see your card.

The theme for the first challenge is

"Punches".

Use as many or as few punches as you want! And remember, designer papers from your scrapbox only!


My card also qualifies for this week's Stamp something challenge, which is brown and something. This piece of au chocolate retired StampinUp designer paper from my scrap box was perfect.

It was quick card to make, and the sketch was super easy too. The recipe is below.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, hope you like the card, and maybe I inspired you to use up your scraps too!

Recipe:
Stamps: Penny Black, stampin up
Paper: pretty in pink, very vanilla, sage shadow, DP au chocolate (all SU)
Ink: memento tuxedo black, creamy caramel, chocolate chip, copics
Accessories and tools: flatback pearl, flower punch (SU), twigs punch, lace border punch (MS), circle punch (EK), sponge

What a lovely card and a brilliant idea. I hope I can get some time to join in sometimes, unfortunately time constraints would make it impossible for me to be a regular :o)

What a great idea for a challenge, I need to do this a lot more...it is so easy to grab a fresh sheet of cardstock or DP out of the cupboard, and then the scrap pile grows and grows.
The card you made is adorable-I love those Penny Black images!
