Dotty Pinwheel


Hi. I've been trying to use up some of my ageing stash on each of my cards.
I bought this dotty paper a few years ago and thought it was perfect for the challenge at
Scrapbook Boutique. The paper was dark brown on the reverse which I thought was too dark, so I cut a pink pinwheel and folded it in with the dotty one to lighten it up. A double pinwheel!

Here's the inspiration pic for the challenge.

Enter Our Challenge - starts 10th each month

The waffles remind me of the pinwheel blades!

I used heaps of snippets cutting out the letters so I'm popping into the playground again at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

At Addicted to CAS the code word is die cuts.

Materials used: Stampin Up pinwheel die; Memory Box Parker alphabet dies; Tiny Bubbles embossing folder; brad & sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)

A super way to use your 'not-so-loved' paper ...made a fab pinwheel & the bright colors on the dotty paper was just right for the breezy shapes. Liked the brown back with the pop of pink too. Great EF with the brilliant colors of your sentiment & pinwheel. TFS & Hugs.
