SHOPPING OUR STASH #280 - Paper Strip Art

Hello friends and welcome! This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we are going to help you use up some of those paper scraps you are holding on to, by using the BARGELLO TECHNIQUE! Here's the card I came up with:

 and the inside:

The great thing about this technique is that there are so many patterns you can make from it! Think about it: cut up 4 or 5 different papers, change out the design per card, and wah-lah! Cool cards and you used up some of that hoarded paper stash!

We hope that you find some time to play along at Shopping Our Stash, and we look forward to seeing all of your cards in the gallery! For more inspiration, do check out what the Design Team came up with. Also, this is Cornelia's last post as Guest Designer with the SOS Crew. Thank you so much for joining us this month! You have an amazing talent and we hope to see more of your works in our gallery in the future! 

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you all have a great day!
