Papertrey Ink July Blog Hop!

Tonight is PTI's July Blog Hop and I had some time to spare, so I decided to play along again this month!  So much fun :) 


Our challenge this month is to create a card or project using 'office supplies'!  I scoured around my kitchen and office to see what I could find to incorporate into a card and here is what I came up with:


Office Supplies Used:

PTI Library Ledger patterned papers
Quadrille (squares) ledger papers
Manilla parcel shipping tag
Staples (blue)
Paper Clips (blue)
For Deposit Only Stamp
{Scalloped} Envelope
Shipping String
Packing Tape to hold down rouched ribbon
And ... if you look really close, I printed my latest order INVOICE from PTI on the Quadrille ledger paper!

Miscellaneous buttons, vintage newsprint Prima flower, Marina Mist Tafetta Ribbon and antique yo-yo from my stash!

This was such a FUN project ... the scavenger hunt was almost as fun as creating the card!

Challenges for this design:

Papertrey Ink July Blog Hop - office supplies
Simon Says Stamp - sketch
The Pink Elephant #76 - brown
Color Throwdown #102 - Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi, Not Quite Navy
The Creative Cottage #19 - texture

Pile It On! #29 - Stretch that Plastic (buttons)
