The Shear fun of it!!

Hello everyone!! Michelle here today. Happy Thursday!!! How can that be already??!!! The week is whizzing by! With that being said, Thursday is also the day the new challenge is given!! I am excited to be issuing my first challenge for Scraptastic Club!!

So, let's get to it!! We all have them. They are the old forgotten tool. The tool that was there before any of the fancy cutting systems came out! We are talking about our decorative scissors. I know everyone has them. I certainly do! So, let's dig those decorative scissors out. Pull them out of your kids art bin!! Let's see what you can do with them!! Here is my example. I made this with the Birthday Wishes kit. I dug out the pinking shears (did ya guess that from the title?? LOL) and cut around my big circle. I wanted a decorative edge, but didn't want the tradition scallop and such that I can get with my punches.Now, it is your turn!! I can't wait to see what you create. Make sure to share your project using the linkz below to win this month's prize, Echo Park's Splash Collection.

The more times you play along with the challenges, the more chances to win!!! You have until July 6th at Midnight to submit your projects. To get an extra entry into the drawing, become a follower of this blog and post a comment here letting me know that you did this.

You can find the previous challenges HERE, HERE and HERE.
