Papertrey July Blog Hop Challenge

I was able to participate in this month's Blog Hop at Papertrey Ink!  The challenge this month was to work office supplies into your creation.  I don't use a lot of office supplies in my creations regularly, so this was a bit of a challenge for me.  :) 


I used the Beautiful Blooms II set, Take Note and It's Official for my card.  I also used some coordinating dies, Beautiful Blooms II #2 die, the Spiral Notebook Page die as well as the Just the Ticket border die and Large Scalloped Border die.  The paper I used was Pure Poppy, Harvest Gold, Beautiful Blooms and Library Ledger

As far as office supplies, I used a staple, a rubber band and a paperclip.  I kind of used the rubber band as a ribbon, clipping (or tying) it with the paperclip. 


Be sure and head on over to Nichole's blog to see the list of participants for tonight's blog hop!  You can hop along and see everyone's take on using office supplies in their creations!  You can even chat over in the forums and enter the Blog Hop Forum contest!  Thanks for stopping by!
