Love you :)

Hi everyone! 

Our latest challenge is live on LESSology and this time we want to see what you can create with packaging :) 


I decided to use an old packaging of an alpha chipboard sheet I had from Prima :)   The alphas are long gone (they didn't stick at all ... and they frustrated me, so I got rid of them... lol!!)  But I kept the packaging they came in to use as a mask! 

I placed my background page down and then placed the alpha chipboard packaging on top and misted away :)




And here is what my background page looks like now :) 



And here is my layout I made :) 

I used the July Paper Made Bakery kit on my layout :) 









Hope you all can join us and show us what you can do with packaging :) 

Our prize for this challenge is the "Sunkissed" paper collection (one sheet of each design in the collection) from GCD Studios :)

Love the idea as using the packaging as a mask. I have quite a few sets that have come loose in the packaging and it frustrates me after what they charge for them.
