Punky Recipe - the Star of the Show

It's time for another Punky Scraps challenge! Don't try to resist, because this one is too good to miss.

Make a page from the following ingredients:
  • Stars
  • No patterned paper
  • Masking
  • Staples
  • Exposed cardboard
  • Book page
  • Bottle cap
  • Washi tape
Credits can only go to Inkadinkado and Tim Holtz for the star stamps
Not using any patterned paper was the biggest challenge for me - the biggest to date. (At least I know the need to use patterned paper will prevent my stash from ever getting out of control.)

I used everything on the list EXCEPT for the bottle cap because I FORGOT it. I had a Newcastle Brown Ale bottle cap somewhere (it has a star on it - perfect) but I only remembered it after I finished the page.

Love stars? Love ripping up cardboard? Look no further...
Again, as I mentioned in my previous post, I spent a LOT of time thinking about this page. I left it till the very last minute, and then woke up on the last day before deadline with the idea in my head. This time, the ingredients were decided for me; it was the laying out of the page that was taking time to come into focus.

I would LOVE to see people playing along with this challenge especially, so please pop over to Punky Scraps and check out the inspiration from the DT.


  1. No patterned paper would be a big big challenge for me too! And I'm not sure I could pull it off as perfectly as you have here. I like it!

  2. Love your page! Great design and adorable photo!

  3. I'm working on it tonight!! This is my fave page from the challenge- your design is absolutely beautiful and the photo is mesmerizing- can't look away- you guys look so happy- I want to give you both a big hug!!!!

  4. I really like it. I think it is great to get away from being a slave to PP. It gives you a more creative space. Now, how would I do this, seeing as I lent you my star stamp!!! lol.
