Tranquil Moments! - 613 Avenue Create Challenge Blog - Create Your Own Challenge

Hello Crafty, Peeples!   Here is my second design for Challenge #27 at 613 Avenue Create!  My first project used an image from our sponsor, QKR. This one uses an image from our sponsor, Rick St. Dennis.

The image is "Geisha" by Rick St. Dennis
The papers are from the Graphic 45 Birdsong Collection
Image, Solid Paper, Patterned Paper, Die Cut, Liquid Pearls, Pearls, Lace, gliimmer mist
This  project is based on the same Tammy Tutterow Project that I shared when I posted my 
"You Are Matchless" Project.  I just increased the size of the Matchbook and the cards are not 
bound at the bottom.  You can find Tammy's Tutorial HERE

Here are the Journal/Photo Mats.  The back is blank

You Are Matchless - Avenue 613 Challenge - Create Your Own Challenge

Hello, Crafty Peeps!  This week at 613 Avenue Create, we are asking you to create your own challenge.  We had this theme last month and it was a big hit with our "residents" so we decided to do it again.
Image, Sentiment, Patterned Paper, Solid Color Paper Any Sketch,
 Die Cut, Glimmer Mist, Pearls, Ribbon
I used Perfect Pearls Glimmer Mist on the Cover. 
 It does not show in the photo, which is too bad because it elevates the project.
 I was inspired to create this matchbook card by a project that I saw on Tammy Tutterow's Blog.  You can find Tammy's project HERE

I realized (a little too late) that I should have cut my base a little longer to accomodate by bulky embellishments on the internal pages.  I corrected this on my Geisha Matchbook, which will be posted here later today.

This is pretty much a CASE of Tammy's Project.  I liked the idea of using newsprint (Tammy used Tim Holtz Papers) so I used pages from an old book that I keep around to use on my tags and cards.

 Of course, it did not occur to me to photograph the pages BEFORE the matchbook was bound.
All of the sentiments and images are related to "Friendship"

I have ideas  for three more matchbook cards.  These puppies are loads of fun and so easy to make!  Thanks Tammy for the wonderful inspiration and the fabulous tutorial!

Our sponsors this week at 613 are:  QKR Stampede and Rick St. Dennis

Thanks, for stopping by!  Hugz, Chana
