Saturday Challenge

Since there were only two submissions this week (and we really loved them both) instead of choosing one winner, we are going to award both layouts a prize so CONGRATULATIONS to Mary Beth and Jen, you are both lucky winners of the Unity Itty Bitty stamp, Live Love Laugh!
Please email your mailing address to: thegirls@paperwingsnj.com.

For this week's challenge, you will be asked to use a handmade embellishment on your layout, card or project. Here is a sample of a layout and a card using handmade flowers.

 The flower on the layout was made with fabric tape and the leaves were stamped, then sprayed with Glimmer Mist and coated with Glossy Accents.

This flower was made by punching scallops from vintage sheet music, then decoupaging with glittered decoupage. (A lot of you have seen this before since we made them in the store and I also did a tutorial on my blog awhile back, click here if you'd like to check it out.)
The ribbon was also hand-dyed seam binding, so that is another handmade embellishment for ya!
We have decided that we will once again offer a prize for the winner this week. It's a cool new tool from We R Memory Keepers called the Sew Easy!
If you love to sew on your pages but hate using those templates or popping holes by hand then this is the tool for you! Check out this site to learn more about it!
