Use it or Lose it – Photo Inspiration

The new Use it or Lose it Challenge is to be inspired by this photo:

I have to say, the colors really got to me…bold and bright and I immediately thought Lagoon and Black.  Here is the layout that I came up with:

Supplies used are all CTMH unless otherwise noted: Black, White, and Lagoon cardstock, Paper Packet, Sparkle Flourishes, Clear Sparkles, Bitty Sparkles, Just Blooms Paper Shapes – Flutter, Damask Tiles stamp set, Boutique Borders stamp set, Black ink, Art Philosophy Cricut Collection, and Making Memories Heidi White Rubon Letters.

I started with a Page Map from November 2011.  I knew the colors I wanted to use and paper with those colors was not coming to mind so I figured I would be stamping some patterns.  Then, I ran across a pack of Veranda paper.  Now I never, ever, ever would have thought I would be using Juniper and Lagoon on the same layout but somehow this works out and is completely inspired by the top photo!

I REALLY wanted to stamp/emboss my title in white with the Bohemian Alphabet but it was the last thing I added to my layout and I chickened out and ended up using white rubons instead.

February 2012 CTMH Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Buttons & Flowers

WELCOME!  I’m so glad you are joining us for our “Use Your Stash Blog Hop”.  If you have already started, you should be coming from Tabbi Fritz’s Blog.  If this is your first stop, continue through until you make your way back here.

This month we are featuring buttons and flowers.

Supplies used: Let’s Get Together Paper Packet, Colonial White Waxy Flax, Just Blooms Flowers (link to similar product), Red Assortment Buttons, Color Ready Alphabet – Hodge Podge (link to similar products), Irresistibles Eclectic Die-Cuts, Cranberry InkHooray Bouquet stamp set, and Art Philosophy Cricut Collection.

This is one of my favorite paper packs from “back when”  When I looked at my stash of buttons I had a lot of red and thought of this paper.  I used a sketch from Page Maps March 2011.  I discovered that it is fun when I am able combine old supplies with new ones.  Most of the products I used are fairly old but then I used the Hooray Bouquet stamp set with my Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge and those are both newer supplies.  I am learning that this is so easy to do with stamps!

I was also reminded with this layout why I love waxy flax so much.  It is so easy to thread buttons and stays in place.  I attached my buttons to the layout, poked holes with my Piercing Tool, and threaded the waxy flax through – no needle needed!

I am so pleased with how this title came out.  Again, I mixed old product with new.  I opened my package of Irresistible letters and used up more of my Color-Ready Alphabet.  It turned out to be a great combination!

Now hop on over to Ann Marie’s Blog for more ideas on using up your button and flower stash.

If you get lost along the way you can see the entire list of hoppers on my previous post.
