Papertrey Ink Blog Hop: July 2010


The challenge this month was to incorporate office supplies into our projects. I have been wanting to use staples on a card for awhile now, but never remember to so that's what I used on my card. I also used a notecard. It might not be something everyone has in their office, but it is essential in my 'office' (aka my classroom).

Can't believe how fast this month is flying by! Looking forward to meeting some of you at CHA this week!

Thanks for stopping by!
~Anika

Supplies: (All Papertrey Ink)
Cardstock: Kraft
Stamps: Signature Greetings, Damask Designs
Ink: Dark Chocolate, Fresh Snow, Tea Dye Duo
Ribbon: Sweet Blush Twill
Other: Staples, Notecard
