Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #16 Guest Designer

As a September Guest Designer for the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge, I am excited to play along with the second challenge of the month, and I couldn't be happier with the supplies that we are challenged to pull out.

Like so many papercrafters, I have a bit of an obsession with office and school supplies.

Challenge #16 Who Loves School and Office Supplies?

Most paper crafters also love school and office supplies. We love crayons, markers, shaped paperclips, notepads, folders, and more! If you hoard school and office products, get them out! Use them up! Use at least one item that is really a school or office supply on your project. 

I pulled out an older 7 Gypsies stamp set along with some newer MFT stamps and dies to make this file folder thank you card.

The Spotlight Sentiment Thank You was stamped and then the outlined section colored with  Distress Markers and highlighted with Wink of Stella.

A paperclip holds the file folder closed and is easily slipped aside to expose the sentiment folder inside.

Again, the 7 Gypsies Disclaimer stamps are paired with with a few different MFT stamps (including the background grid stamp) and the High-Rise Alphabet dies. The die cut letters are covered with Wink of Stella for a little shine.

Did you notice a few elements are stapled on the card? The staples and paperclips are the real office supplies used as part of the challenge.

I hope you dig into your hoarded supplies and play along with these challenges.

Thanks for stopping by,
