TMS#133


Good Tuesday morning!  It's time for another fun challenge from Tuesday Morning Sketches; our sketch this week comes from Jessica and it's not only a sketch, but a card with a "scrapling".  I have always wanted to try this, so here was my chance!

First, you trim an A2 card down to a 4 1/4" square...the portion remaining is the "scrapling".  How fun is that?  You can use the scrap to make a tiny little card.  I added a charm that says "I Love You"...this might be a fun one to sneak into one of the kids' backpacks.  Or, as we say at our house "packpack"....  When my daughter was a pre-schooler, she used to call it this and it stuck!

Image: Stampendous
Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, SU! Poppy Parade, Pinecone Press DP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Embellies: SU! Poppy Parade Ribbon, Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Angel Dust", Watch Us Charm
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Dimensionals 

I hope you will stop over at the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog to check out the rest of the DT's creations. I would love to see you give this fun technique a try too....  This week is a judged challenge and Marie has thrown in the extra challenge of 4-2-1...4 layers, 2 ribbons, and 1 embellishment.  Have fun!

Thanks for stopping by!

Adorable! Love the red and brown papers with Changito. The scrapling is cute, too. I had the same thought of putting it into a backpack or lunch bag.
