CCEE and Little Paper Shop

Happy Birthday Frances!

Time for our CCEE Challenge. Our challenge this week is another brought to us by Frances Byrne. One of Frances' favorite new things to create are scaplings so this week's CCEE challenge is to create a scrapling. For those of you who haven't heard of scraplings before you can see a few more on Frances' blog here.

Scraplings are normally 1.25" x 4.25" because they are often made from the off cuts you get when you make a square card (4.25" square) from a piece of card that is 4.25" x 5.5". However you can make your scraplings a little wider depending on what you are working on at the time.

I hope you can play along.

Also please check the Little Paper Shop Blog for a fun Challenge Monday Morning.
I made an extra card this week in honor of France's Birthday. If you want to wish Frances Happy Birthday, go on over to her blog. Stamp Owl's Studio!!!!
