MTTC challenge blog Office Supply Theme for 16 April 2021

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My artsy-crafty heart wanted to go crazy with MTTC's new theme! I didn't want to use an office supply like an embellishment but to really build most of the card cover with office/stationery supplies. Creative thoughts were better than the execution, however....see what you all think.

My Time To Craft's # theme challenge will start early on Friday, April 16, 2021 and will last a fortnight. 

 CARD #1: Today's Plan Birthday card=

link for MTTC's office/stationery supply (-ies) theme # =

Creative design process included these supplies found in or on my desk or table used for crafting=

1. regular and jumbo sized paper clips

2. two types of memo notes--yellow and sage green lined sticky notes and white lined memo page ripped from the memo pad

3. micro-thin washi tapes used as little banner flags on the jumbo clips

4. three colors of highlighters were used to create a border on the white memo paper

5. four colors of ink pens to write the birthday sentiment

6. three colors of permanent markers were used to create a dotted border on the card bases

7. a planner stencil sheet with different words or phrases had the 'today's plan' that I thought went well with the idea of a birthday celebration
