This week's paper piecing technique challenge is hosted by Sharyn. Paper piecing is a great way to get around colouring images -- says I the non-colourer LOL!
I haven't used this fabulous Better With You set by Verve for some time and it is perfect for paper piecing the cups. I used some older, Stella and Rose, MME papers (still love them) and the sleeves on the cups part of actual Starbuck's sleeves which I cut to fit. Two dies from the Flag It die set were used for the sentiments and I "attached" t hem with faux stitching. Needless to say, I am desperately craving a decaf, non-fat latte right about now!!
The sketch is this week's Viva La Verve sketch and I just love it. In case you haven't heard, the VLV challenge has been moved to a blog format and you can find it here. The sketch challenge is posted every Friday, and every Tuesday, one of the Diva's will be doing a recap and posting a few of her favorite cards for that week's sketch. In addition, you no longer have to complete all the sketches in a given month to be eligible to win, but the more you complete the better your chances of winning a $100 gift certificate to the Verve Store!
Sorry, got sidelined there wink, wink. The rest of the JUGS team, along with our January Guest Designer Geraldine Bailly, have some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so head on over to the Just Us Girls blog and check out what they've created. Then put your creative genes to work and add your card/project to the challenge post on the JUGS blog for the chance to be chosen as the Chic of the Week. Plus if you are chosen as Chic of the Week, you could be invited to be a Guest Designer.
I am looking forward to a bit of a sleep in Saturday as we had to readjust our body clocks to school time this past week. Do it to myself every year, but the late night reading in bed is worth it LOL! Have a fabulous weekend!
