Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge #94. Use office supplies!

Okay, here we are, it's Saturday yet again, so time for another Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge! Our hostess with the mostest this week is the wonderful Krafty Kerry and she would like us to use office supplies on our cards. Yikes!! I thought I was in trouble with this one, but as usual I was making things more complicated than they are. I couldn't think of what I had in the way of office supplies, but then I remembered that I have some cute coloured staples and also some round paper clips, so to play it safe, I have used both.

I used the darling image 'Back to School Katie' for my card, I think she has so much personality, captured by our awesome artist Cheryl Alger. I coloured her to match some papers I chose from DCWV Grade School pad, which I only just opened to use and I love it. I used my trusty Copics (big surprise!) and I cut out the image layer with my Labels Fourteen Nesties. I then took the die and drew around the outside to cut out a slightly larger frame for Katie. I used Poppy Parade for this. I matted the two large pieces of patterned paper onto some more Poppy Parade and then onto a card base of Bashful Blue. I then took some Lavender Lace, cut a strip and pleated it all along and used some purple staples to keep it in place. I glued the strip along the centre of the card. I added a fabric apple on the top right, which was given to me by my daughter-in-law (thanks Rita!), stamped 'You Know You Love Me' which actually comes with one of the Glamour Girls, I think it's Betty. The sentiment that comes with Katie is 'Learning is Fun'. I coloured a swirly paper clip with a red Copic marker and added a yellow crayon under the image.

Now let's see your creations using office supplies. I'm sure you will have more original ideas than mine. The randomly chosen winner will receive 'Back to School Mattie' as that's the one Kerry used on her fabulous card.

Don't forget that Kraftin' Kimmie's Frugal Friday started yesterday and the stamps on sale are Caroline, Nick, Engineer Ethan, Tommy Treats, Victoria and Scripture Quotes and all of these stamps are 40-50% off. That is one great deal!!

Hope to see you next week,
