CCEE2008 ~ Paper Piecing!

Hi friends!

One more day until Fri-YAY!
I know ... I can't wait either!

There's a new challenge at the CCEE Stampers blog:  Paper Piecing!
That's a tried and true and favorite papercraft technique 
that I've always enjoyed doing.
I think it's reminiscent of when we'd play paper dolls
('membah those?!)
and could change up the outfits 
and outings of the little dollies with just paper.

For my card today, I'm using the Tim Holtz 
Stampers Anonymous Bird Crazy set.
These birds are hilarious!
I think if I could be a Tim Holtz bird,
this one that I've made is probably about what I'd look like :)

Bright colors and those big 'ol eyeballs ♥

Here's my card and I paper-pieced the birdie.
The rest is a clean and simple card and the sentiment comes in the set ~
and I love that it matched her expression so well.

You can see what the design team created by heading here to the blog
as well as finding the linky at the bottom to link up your cards, too.
We'd love to see what you make
with the paper piecing theme.

Thanks for stopping by today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥

  6. Kelly, this is so cute! I've always enjoyed paper piecing; one never knows exactly how it will look until the pieces are cut out. Yours looks awesome!

  9. Wow, not sure why I haven't ever used my crazy birds for this technique when they just turn out this adorable. I guess I am always using those Angie girls from Unity and pretend I am playing paper dolls. LOL Love this card, Kelly!
