This week's #jrlcreativechallenge is using Heartstrings papers because they are going away at the end of this month. I made a card...but then I remembered that I had a pack of the Heartstrings Picture My Life cards.
I popped over to Paper Issues to check out the adorable Sketchy Saturday Sketch, I knew I coudl make it work with the cards I'd chosen, so I grabbed a sheet of Cranberry Cardstock and started stitching.
First I stitched the grid with two strands of white sewing thread. Then I added a second line of stitching with a single strand of black thread. I used some leftover Heartstrings StickEase and trimmed out elements from the PML cards.
I only had a scrap of this arrow paper left, so I cut out strips of the B&T with my microtip scissors. That way I could fill in the grid with my teensy scrap of B&T paper. Plus it looks more like arrows.
I stamped my title onto Lagoon Cardstock using the super cute Hopscotch Alphabet that I won from CTMH. It was pretty easy to trim out the letters - it's my new favorite alphabet. It was really fun to use my pocket scrapbooking cards in a new way.
