Let's Face It Fridays - Paper Bag Challenge


I just bought my Peachy Keen stamps last week and I love the challenges on their website. Just right for me, wanting to play with my new toys, but don't know what to make.

I actually bought their stamps for the Create a Critter. Everybody loves this cartridge, and same here, and very much. I have made many cuts before and the stamped face brought the cute animals so much life! Love it!

Now back to the challenge.

This IS a challenge to me...First of all, we don't have any lunch bag in the house. Then I thought about the paper bag from Trader Joe's, but those were tooooo big. I was just about to give up before I found this small paper bag from Yankee candle. It looked very like a paper grocery bag and its size is 8 by 8 in., just perfect.

With the help of the beloved Gypsy, I was able to use my piles of scraps for all the elements. And I could also hide the cuts and use the face stamps. It's such an easy and fun project since everything is just from one imagine.


Details:

The penguin was cut at 2.8, and stamped with the medium size face stamp. I felt a large stamp may work too, but I don't own one.

And everything else was cut at 2.5 in. , but the real imagine was not true to the dial size.
The snow house is a bit taller than 2.5 in.

The fish's real size is about 1.5 inch. I wasn't about to cut them at first, since they looked ugly to me on the handbook. But I wanted my cute penguin to at least have some food.......so I cut two and stamped the faces as well. Then they turned to be too cute to be food !

I think that's all for today's challenge project. Oh, I did cut a good paper today...hurt.....sign..... The matting paper was from Joann's 12*12 harvest and holiday stack and was cut at 7.75 by 7.75. Again, I think it's so worth it, *wink* .
