Blogger's Challenge Week 18 - Designer Paper!

This is NOT a give away... it is a blogger's challenge post ONLY....


I love Blogger's Challenge Fridays! The challenge is always different and the creative edge is always fun to explore. See my sidebar for other players and check out their challenge cards!

This week, we were challenged to use Designer Paper in our creations. I decided to take the Double Pocket fold from the TJ Newsletter and ratchet it up a notch -- I made it a Triple Pocket Fold!

On the left is the card pockets without the inserts. I didn't add any more paper to the pockets -- it just has an extra fold. Don't worry, TJers -- I will post the extra directions on the Subscriber-Only pages so that you can do it, too : )



This card also happens to be my TJ Just-One swap card for my partner Dawn W. Thank you, Dawn, for allowing me to post it here, and for understanding that I needed to consolidate my creative energies a bit. I worked extra hard to make the card and the inserts special for you - I hope you like it! Here are the inserts:

Thank you for looking at my BC entry for today! I do appreciate your comments, and feel free to leave them about the card -- but please, this is not a give away post and I know you all know this -- but PLEASE DO NOT POSTS GIVE AWAY ENTRIES ON THIS POST. The Give aways are above and below. Thanks!

This is the most gorgeous thing I have seen with this set! I love it! A triple pocket card too, woo hoo! Might have to case this if I get the paper and set, which I have resisted so far, weakening....

I like what you did with the triple pocket card. Haven't tried my hand at a double pocket card yet but will definitely add the double or triple to my to-do list. Thanks so much for sharing with us.
