Hi Stampers, and Happy 2015! It's the first challenge of the year for our new and improved Design Team at The Paper Players! We have three new permanent Design Team members and three new Guest Designers so please visit them and say hello!
Anne Marie Hile is also back from a much deserved break. She's hostess this week and has a wonderful theme challenge for us, "Everything Old is New Again". She'd like us to use something recycled or re-purposed in our project.
Though this stamp set didn't grab me at first glance, I decided that I had to have the Guy Greetings Stamp Set from the new Stampin' Up Occasions catalog, available Tuesday, January 6. I never seem to have enough masculine stamp sets, and this one has lots of great images and sentiments.
I used a couple of recycled items on my card. This nifty bag was my inspiration and I got it when I purchased a gift certificate for my hubby for a hot shave at Mad Men. The vintage buttons came out of my sewing box, and though I wound up not using them, those fun safety pins came off of jeans from Chico's.
I struggled with a layout until I found this perfect one at Mojo Monday.
I'm also playing along with Darnell's NBUS challenge as I am using the Guy Greetings Stamp Set for the very first time.
