Paper Players 58


Hi everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! It’s Sunday and that means another Paper Players challenge!

PP58 Banner

This week we have a “School Daze” challenge by our hostess, Ann! I am pretty sure that Ann will not be going back to school since she is retired now, but I guess that she’s still in that mode! (I am thinking she much prefers staying at home with the pups!)

I was challenged by my teammate Anne Marie to do the Hand Stamped Sentiments’ Fancy Fold challenge with my card this week:


There were a few things I would have changed about my execution of this card. The fold itself is fun and easy; I got the directions from Laura Lipe, here. However, I wish I had stamped my numbers in black ink instead of Pacific Point; my original intent was just to leave them uncolored. They looked kind of plain, so I colored them with a blender pen---ick, too light. Oh well, not enough time for a re-do! I do love my little school bus from Every Little Bit;


and the sentiment from Petite Pairs:


We’d love to have you play along with us this week so we can see how your School Daze plays out! Stop by the Paper Players blog to share your creation! And here are the other designers as well:
