Sunday Stampers: Paper Sun.

Being a compulsive hoarder of all things paper related I had to try Hels challenge this week which is to use paper. My craft room so needs a clear out. I have wanted to finish a little book made up of folded long envelopes which gives you a lot of opportunities to file tags and bits and bobs. I got out my 'can't throw that out' box and covered the envelopes in an assortment of papers and made the covers by cutting mount board. Then I die cut an assortment of tags all ready for filling in. I also stamped one of the tags so that I qualified for the challenge. The cover has an ink sprayed paper rose and tattered leaves that have been inked and stickled.


 Punched butterflies for added dimension. 
 Even found some pieces that co-ordinated!
A Paper Artsy stamp with a 'Tim' tattered corner stamp. 
 I used different die shapes and tags ready for photo's and musings.
The end, I loved this paper it looks like a ghostly figure leaving! There are some more pages but I didn't want to bore you with more photo's. I have used embossing powder and different brads and some inks on the paper and intend to fill it with 'important stuff'' so it is a work in progress. Fun to do and used up some of those 'bits'. Great challenge Hels! Have fun everyone. x
