2 kits, 2 cards, NO tape runner!

So have you heard about the This or That challenge for February??!
You have to either give up your paper trimmer or your tape runner.

Tough one, huh??!
Well I didn't get a chance to do the challenge in January so I definitely wanted to this month's.

I just didn't realize how tough it was going to be!!

After much deliberation I decided to give up my tape runner.
Even though I don't absolutely love my current paper trimmer, I figured my infatuation with brads and my stapler would make the no tape runner thing do-able.

So here is what I made and the proof that I did it honestly!

Card #1 using the delightful Charm School kit...

The hearts & the "hugs & kisses" sticker are adhered with foam adhesive.
The striped paper is attached brads.
The cardstock matting the "hugs & kisses" sticker was stapled to the card first before I added the sticker.

Here's my proof...

And card #2 using the Cabin Fever kit...

The brown cardstock and the green/blue paper were stapled to the card very strategically.

Then the "baby, it's cold outside" sentiment was adhered over the staples using foam adhesive.
And here's the proof again...

(sorry for the poor quality of my "proof" pictures. i decided too late to take those pictures and had no sunlight at all!)
You still have time to play along with us.
You have until the end of the month to make something without your tape runner or without your paper trimmer!
Happy Wednesday!
