Supplies used are CTMH unless otherwise noted: Lucy Paper Packet, My Peeps stamp set, Sweet Leaf Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Sky/Outdoor Denim/Petal inks, Sweet Leaf/Cotton Candy/Sky/Petal/Creme Brulee Markers, and Kaiser Pearls.
I started with a sketch from Magic. It was a fun one because of all the pictures that I was able to add. I have a few more so I will be adding flip flaps over the bottom left photo. This is a great stamp set for Easter. I used all of the images. The eggs were fun to color and added a lot of color to the layout. This set also works great with the adhesive springs for an added playful element. I didn’t use them on this layout but I have used them on a milk carton that I’m almost finished with and will share soon.
I am pretty sure this paper was from a K & Company stack. I just love the bright colors and how easy it is to use for a quick and simply layout. I just added my picture, a CTMH Sparkle Flourish, and Kaiser Rhinestones. Done!
This layout was created for the Use it or Lose it Challenge. The challenge this time is Paper Piecing. I used to do paper piecing all the time. It’s a lot easier now that we have the Cricut but I still just haven’t used this technique much. It is a bit time consuming but always worth it in the end.
For my layout I pieced together some stamped images as you can see in the closeup picture above. My base was created using an image from the Life’s Creation stamp set (retired). I stamped and cut out the image 3 times and placed them in a circle. My next layer is a flower from the Sweet Home Workshop-On-The-Go stamp set (retired) and the top flower is from Life’s Creation. Paper piecings look even more amazing if you add some type of embellishment to them like I did with the Opaque Pearls.
Supplies used are all CTMH unless otherwise noted: paper, Life’s Creation stamp set (retired), Sweet Home stamp set (retired), Colonial White Ribbon, Opaques Pearl Adhesive Gems, Irresistibles Eclectic Chipboard Die-Cuts Alphabet, Chocolate/Juniper/Tulip/Sunset inks, and Zig marker.
The layout was one I received in a swap at convention a couple years ago, created by Anna Peterson. I added the title, journaling, and stamped embellishments.
