Remember When Blog Hop

Hi all

We are doing a blog hop and the idea is to use something from your stash that is 10 years or more old. So i have chosen the patterned edged scissors which were one of my first craft tools.

Comment on each blog to win a prize:

Anita Scroggins -

I am offering a word stamp from The Blank Page Muse and something i handmade as a prize.

Cover a 6 x 6 blank with purple paper and then cut a strip from black paper.

Use the deckle edged scissors along the edge and then cut a large rectangle from grey paper. Use the torn edge scissors around the edges and ink with dark red ink.

Grue the black strip to the back of the grey piece and then stick it to the card.

Take a topper and use 3D foam tape to secure it to the edge of the card and then add a sentiment.  

Cover a blank 5 x 7 card with black paper.
Glue lace across the bottom of the card to hide where the paper joins. I used two sheets of 6 x 6 paper so i had to cover the card in two parts.
Cut out a large rectangle from purple paper and use the patterened edged scissors around the edges. Ink it in purple and stick it to the centre of the card.
Cut put a wide strip of patterened paper and use the patterened edged scissors around then glue it down the edge of the purple layer.
Add the topper to the centre and a sentiment to finish
