It's the second week of the Sophisticats challenge (I won their first challenge last week...woohoo!!!) and they want you to make any kind of wallet, any colour any style. I made a wallet/folder thing last night but Chiara decided she would spill hot chocolate all over it before I got a chance to take a photo!! Now I wonder why that sound familiar??? If yoiu have been a follower of mine for a long time, you will probably remember that I spilt a whole cup of hot chocolate all over my 12x12 papers (a full box of them) and it soaked nearly all of them!! You would think I would of learned my lesson and not took hot drinks to my table but obviously not. I left it on the table, forgot to drink it and Chiara knocked it over covering my project and a pile of other stuff too! At least it was cold and she didn't get burnt though.
So I made a quick little wallet today (the other one took me a while to make).
I had to scan it because my camera still wont go on! So the scanner squished it a bit and it looks squint but the score line you can see at the bottom does actually sit flat.
Here's the inside. The embossing hasn't shown up very well here either but it says because you are special.
The top picture looks big but it is actualy really small. I made it with a 6x6 piece of paper.
The papers are K&Co , the tickets were stamped on white shimmery card with black Stazon, then I rubbed over it with distress ink (using an old piece of sponge). The stamp was a freebie from a magazine. The sentiment is a inkadinkado stamp I bought ages ago but this is the first time I have used it. Everything else from my stash.
I saw something like this on someones blog months ago and remembered they used a 6x6 piece of card so I just played around with it and came up with this. I'm not sure who's blog I saw it on or if this is the same thing she made as it was ages ago and I can't rememebr exactly how it looked. But it was so easy to make that my 6 year old Daughter Rhianna made one too. I did measure and mark where she should score for her (after I did my own and sussed out where to score), but she scored the lines, folded and stuck it together, picked the papers and decorated it all on her own. So she want's to enter her one into the challenge too.
Sorry again about the rubbish scans.
She used papers by Crafts House and some bits from my stash. She hasn't put anything in the inside yet but I said I would show the inside anyway.
What do you think? Didn't she do well? She really wouldn't let me help with this because she wanted to enter the challenge and wanted to do it on her own, bless her. I think she done a great job :)
Well that's it from me and Rhianna for now but we still have the crafty stuff out so you may see something else later on today.
Please do leave a comment if you have a minute to let Rhianna know what you think of her wallet. She loves to read my comments and I know it will make her day if you leave one for her :)
