Star Studded Challenge!!

Good Morning!!

Welcome to another challenge at The Paper Variety! I had so much fun looking at the movie themed projects last week. You girls bring it every week! Whether you are faithful follower, just stopping by, or new to our blog - welcome to another fun challenge! ;)

You have until next Tuesday at noon to link up your project below:

We will draw one random winner to receive this week's prize - sponsored by Technique Tuesday!

Isn't this 2 page layout so fun?! You will receive everything needed to create this project. I love those star frames and banners!

Design Team B were super STARS this week :) Check out these projects:

Jan said, "I based this card on a sketch by Nicole Samuels. I used some of my favorite things on it; Strano Ribbon, hand stitching and SRM Stickers!"

Mindy said, "I wanted to make a card for my hubby that was masculine! I've been sick this week and although I give my poor hubby a hard time, I am really lucky to have him and I just wanted to let him know that!!"

Patti said, "I used some Webster's "let's celebrate" pp to make my card. I embossed the word "FAMILY" and pop dotted the star."

Tessa said, "I am always drawn to stars as embellishments for boy pages. For this layout I tried the reverse applique technique: I cut stars out of my background, distressed the edges, and then adhered a patterned paper to the back of my layout, allowing the design to show through the spaces I had cut out. I also used foam adhesive to pop up several smaller stars."


Melissa said, "Inspired by my Mom and her love of books, I've been doing a lot more reading lately. I thought it would be cool to have a place to record the books I'm reading, and that inspired me to create this mini-book, using supplies from the Little Boy collection by Echo Park. I just used index cards adhered back to back for the pages. Simple, but fun and easy to make."

I just ordered this all occasion Hero Arts stamp set and had to use the July 4th sentiment a few months early! I just love this patriotic silhouette.

We can't wait to see what star-studded project you create this week! Whether you use patterned paper, die cuts, stamps or other media - link up your paper project below for a chance to win.

One entry per person please! :)

Link up before Sunday evening for a chance to be featured and before noon on Tuesday to be eligible for the prize.

Have a great day!
