Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Chipboard Everywhere

This hop is a circle; if you have just started simply continue until you make your way back here; if you have already started, you should be coming from Janet McCormick.

Monogram Layout by Wendy Kessler
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted: Key to My Heart Paper Packet (retired), Cardstock (Sunset and Juniper), Dimensional Elements Monogram “S” (retired), Natural Hemp (retired), Opaques Mocha (retired), Paper Flowers, and ShinHan Barely Beige Marker. Very roughly followed at sketch from 52Sketches52Weeks.

I really dug into my stash for this one, notice all the retired items I used!  I haven’t used chipboard in awhile but one of my favorite things used to be to embellish monograms on a page so that’s exactly what I did here.  I still like the look.

Now hop on over to Terry Morrow!

CTMH Technique Blog Hop – Handmade Hues

Welcome to this month’s CTMH Technique Blog Hop.  If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Sheila Bennett.  This month you will see us using the new ShinHan Touch Twin Markers!

Sweet Layout by Wendy Kessler
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted: Key to My Heart Paper Packet (retired), Juniper Cardstock, Artbooking Cricut CartridgeSilver Shimmer Trim, ShinHan Markers (Light Orange, Barely Beige, Carmine), Marquee Enamel Shapes (retired), Sparkles Flourishes, and Irresistibles Eclectic Die-Cuts (retired).

I used the ShinHan Markers in a number of different ways.  I used the to color accents.  This works great with a number of embellishments.  For my layout I colored the Silver Shimmer Trim and the Marquee Enamel Shapes.  I also used the ShinHan Markers to color and shade the Irresistibles Eclectic Die-Cuts chipboard letters.  To do this, I first added “stripes” of each color onto the letters, then I colored and blended with the lighter color from it’s color into the darker color to blend them together.

Tip: The ShinHan Markers work well to color a number of things, including the White Enamel Stars, Silver Shimmer TrimSparkles, Dimensional Elements, and more!

Now hop on over to Melissa Robinson!

Everything ABC’s Blog Hop (U)

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!  For this hop we will be featuring the letter U. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their U element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda Norman – Scrappy Therapy.  If you came from Lauren Moore – CTMH Craftings then you’re on the right track!

Flower Layout by Wendy KesslerSupplies are all by Close to My Heart: Elemental Paper Packet (retired), Unity Stamp set (retired), Sorbet ink, Cardstock (Pacifica, Colonial White, and Sorbet), Sparkle Flourishes, and Cricut Collections.  MLSB Sketch

For the letter U, I have chose the Unity stamp set and some Unused/Useless paper.  How often do you cut a large diecut and throw the “scrap” from the outside away?  I used that scrap as the base for this layout!  I’m not sure if it was Art Philosophy (most likely) or Artbooking that I used.  I added the stamped flowers in the scallops to unify it with the page.  The flowers are Cricut-cut and popped up for dimension.  The center of the flowers are stamped and fussy-cut.  I also added a bit of doodling around the sorbet flowers for some extra detail.

Merry Christmas Layout by Wendy Kessler

 

I changed the first layout by flipping the photo mats on each page to work with my pictures.  I don’t have photos yet for the second layout so I only attached one side of the elements that overlap onto the photo mats.  I also made the third photo mat on the second page the same size as the first two.  I don’t know if you can tell, but I wrote the size of the photo that I would need right on the mats so I won’t need to measure when it comes time to adding pictures.
