Paper Cubed (P3) April Challenge


The lovely Kim over at Paper Cubed (P3) has set another great challenge this month asking us to create a project using this gorgeous piece from Wendy Vecchi at Studio 490  as our inspiration.

A little while back on the JeMbellish blog I set myself a challenge to use up some sturdy cardboard boxes that I had been storing because I thought they were too good to throw out and would surely be useful for something creative.

I used the thick cardboard from the box to create the backing board and frame for this piece that I submitted in the April P3 Challenge.


Brown cardstock for frame -lge A3 sheet from unknown source
Pumpkin Pie and Not Quite Navy cardstock from Stampin Up
Washington Apple Designer Series Paper from Stampin Up
Handmade flowers made using 6x6 designer papers from Stampin Up
Petal Pizzazz stamp set from Stampin Up
Garden Whimsy stamp set from Stampin Up
Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Not Quite Navy Inks from Stampin Up
Hodge Podge oval metal frame from Stampin Up
glass beads on wire from unkown source.

The Paper Cubed (P3) challenge blog is relatively new and for those of you who are interested in making 3D projects it is a fun and inspirational blog well worth a look.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Hi Michelle,
This is a beautiful frame! I hope they will chose your work. The handmade flowers are brilliant! I am going to try if I could make it.

Marlene said...

Fantastic job!! Love how you put it together! (Can I say I also notice how sweetly you "frame" your photos!)

Hi Michelle,
Just stopping by at the advice of Helen and boy am I glad I did! I just love your work so much. Great ideas! I actually started general crafting long before all of the cards and scrapbooking and I love to see there are still some of us left. Keep up the great work, it's beautiful!
PS. I am now a follower (smile) Thanks
