Papercraft Planet

I recently discovered the Papercraft Planet online community. I've barely scratched the surface of all the discussions and information on it, but I have found a group called Every Challenge You Can Think Of, which neatly lists all the current challenges and their days of the week - a great idea. Karin, the group's hostess, held a challenge last night. At lunchtime (UK time) she gave us a list of basic requirements and at 8pm we all sat down to make a card, following her directions.

It was great fun and Karen did a really good job of keeping us all together with our cardmaking. I admit that I found it difficult, I'm a real control freak and I don't like to cut into my paper without knowing what it will be on a card :).

My card has ended up very busy! It was a fun exercise and it was really interesting to see how everyone's cards were different, and yet the same. I didn't colour my image until the card was ready to assemble, which gave me a little chance to co-ordinate it with the rest of the card.

  1. What a great card! Love that image! You color beautifully. I can tell you're a quilter! Your color coordination is just beautiful. I love your blog and your cards. I'll be back often!

  2. This sounds like a lot of fun!

  3. What fun! Your card is fabulous! I don't think it's busy at all.

  4. what a great night - yes PCP is an amazing place, back to the cry of Kristin don't have enough hours & it's summer here so not really crafting weather

  5. How cute! I love what you did with the whole card, Anne!
