This month’s challenge to use just one paper line was definitely a challenge for me. I tend to pull papers all the time from different kits and manufacturers depending on what I am scrapping. I figured that I would be using my Cricut to cut my alphas too since I rely heavy on my Thickers stash and other alphas that I have in the file cabinet. However, I came across the Authentique Gathering kit I had been hanging onto and it had everything I needed to be able to use just one specific line. I found a super fun sketch by Dolores Schaeffer and dug through my photos to find some adorable ones of Baxter cuddled up on me while I was driving the boat. I was excited to use some flowers on a layout again and fussy cut 4 from the papers. Then I grabbed my old Marvy Uchida leaf punch for a few leaves.

I was determined to only use this line of papers, so instead of grabbing some ribbon, I decided to make my own bow out of the papers. I just cut the same width for the ribbon, bow and tails and then fussy cut a little flower to put in the center along with a hole-punched circle in the center of the flower.

I was so excited after making this type of bow from scrap paper. I will definitely be doing this more in the future! It just goes to show how when you are truly challenged by something, it forces you to dig deeper into your creative juices. :) Try it out and have some fun! Would love to see your project using one paper line only!
