Happy Tuesday and welcome back for another colourQ challenge!
I was able to start my Christmas shopping yesterday. I really wanted to start earlier, but it’s kind of hard to do when you’re not really sure what to get someone and you have to wait for their actual Christmas wish list! I picked up some stocking stuffers and also gifts for two of my nieces, some fabric for two gift projects, and ordered a gift for my husband.
This week, we’re adding another dimension to our normal colourQ challenge: to create “anything but a card.” I decorated a kraft gift bag for my project:
|Supplies: kraft gift bag, cardstock (Stampin’ Up – Certainly Celery, Whisper White), leaf punch (Martha Stewart Crafts), patterned paper (My Mind’s Eye), brads (Basic Grey), rub-on (Making Memories).
Since Cool Caribbean has been retired for a while, I tried my best to match the color with paper that I had available. I punched the leaves out of Certainly Celery and paired them with a brad to make holly. I punched border strips from white cardstock to make the border around the panel, and then adhered the panel to the bag. The sentiment is a rub-on that I had in my stash.
For your reference, here are our colors for this week:
I hope you’ll play along with us this week!
