BASB Challenge: Use Cardstock Only


Nothing very exciting to banter about on this day, so I will just share a layout I made this past weekend. This layout was made for the current BASB challenge - Use Cardstock Only. I thought it would be easy, it wasn't. I found I rely on embellishments more than creativity. Such a sad discovery. LOL! I wanted something unique on the layout, so I used "power" tools - a hammer. Wouldn't it have been something, if I said a table saw? ;o) I wound thin strips of cardstock, glued them and then smashed them with a hammer to make them thinner. I think I had a lot of frustration that day. So that is that. Just a simple layout that took me over a week to make. I am a scrapping wuss. The BASB Challenge is still running. If you wish to join in and possibly win the February Scarlet Lime kit, you have until February 28th at 12 midnight EST to do so.
