Wee Memories Challenge 31



Welcome! It's time for Wee Memories Challenge 31! This week we are challenging you to dust off that patterned paper and use it on your project.




With that challenge in mind, it's fitting that our sponsor this time is Paper Maniac! Our winner will receive a $20 gift certificate!

After seeing my buddy, Mandy, challenge herself to make a bunch of cards using one 12x12 piece of patterned paper, I knew I wanted to try it as well. I used my patterned paper in several ways:






As a focal point...













As a background accent...











Using the paper piecing technique...








Playing with punches...





And die-cuts, too!

So, are YOU inspired? We'd LOVE to see what you can create using patterned paper....just link up your finished creation to the Wee Memories blog. You have until midnight PST on Fri., Nov. 19 to be eligible for the Paper Maniac prize!

Now dust off that patterned paper & get creating!
