Pages with Papertrey -- Challenge #6

Today, I'm posting the Pages With Papertrey Challenge for February, which is to use your PTI stamps to create your own patterned paper, like I did here in my layout...

I used American Crafts cardstock (12x12) and Papertrey Ink cardstock (stamper's select white, hawaiian shores, harvest gold, pure poppy) stamps (Journaling Lines, Tag it's #6) & dies (two triangles, alphabet block). The red-polkadot patterned paper is My Mind's Eye, which I cut with my star punch.

To create my journaling strip, I printed out my journaling on white cardstock (after figuring out the spacing in Word that would work best) and then I stamped the Journaling Lines stamp in Hawaiian Shores.


Another idea I wanted to share.... I did some recycling on this page! The banner across the top of the page was orginally made for the cake we enjoyed at our back to school feast. I saved it to adhere to my layout.


If you play along with this month's Pages With Papertrey Challenge, I'd love to see it! Please post a link either in this thread or in my comments.

Thanks for looking!
