Sketch Challenges are something else that is new over at Scrap Our Stash. Please come join us! I love to use sketches! Sometimes I follow them exactly and other times they are just more of a starting point. Get creative, you can rotate the sketch, rotate photos, add/remove photo and journaling spots or replace one with the other. Stash Buster: also add mixed alphabets to your layout in your title or as part of your journaling. This is our first sketch:
Here is my layout:
Supplies used: CTMH Life Delights paper (retired), DCWV Alphabet Stickers, 7 Gypsies Pink Posy Velvet Flowers, CTMH Opaques Pearl Flourishes, Hero Arts Pearls, K & Company Life’s Journey Clearly Yours Alphabet, and CTMH Dark Chocolate Striped Ribbon.
I wasn’t sure about the letters on this layout at first. I left it and came back the next day. Funny thing is that I liked it right away. I dug deep in my stash for most everything on this layout.
There is still time to submit your layout at Scrap Our Stash. You have until March 29th.

I’m not much for following directions so I just want to note that you stamp the wave border before putting down your paper.

There is new ownership over at Scrap Our Stash. Come see the changes and check out the new challenges! Our first one is Kraft It Up. Create a layout using 50% kraft (paper, embellishments, etc.) The stash buster is metal. Use at least 3 pieces of metal embellishments (eyelets, brads, gears, hinges, etc.) on your layout.
Here’s my layout:
Supplies used: Close to My Heart Kraft Paper, unknown pattern paper from my stash (it’s from a stack), Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge, Creative Memories Circle Cutter, mulberry paper from stash, Making Memories Charmed Photo Corners, Making Memories Metal Flowers, Making Memories Metal Word, and Close to My Heart Milepost Shapes (retired).
First of all I have to say that I recently bought some Kraft paper because I see it everywhere and honestly…I hate it. So this was a true challenge for me! In an attempt to use up some of my kraft paper, I used it as the background of my layout. The decorative circle is cut from the Artiste cartridge (p.60 – Accent 4 – Shift – Fit to Page). I took the scraps from the inside of this circle image and flipped them around (double-sided paper) and used them to create the flower. I added another circle of mulberry paper that was buried deep in my stash. Do you remember this stuff? I even used my Creative Memories circle cutter. The shapes in the corners of the layout are layered metal pieces, 2 photo corners topped with the flower.
Now head over to Scrap Our Stash and submit your own layout. You have until March 29th.

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart unless noted: Clementine Paper Packet, Twilight Cardstock, Burlap Ribbon, Basic Brads (retired), and Michael’s Paper Flowers.
This was a layout I finished at the end of February. One of my goals for the month was to finish up the Clementine Paper Packet. I’ve decided that I am going to continue with that as a monthly goal…to use up a paper pack (or at least to the point of a few scraps to go in my cardmaking scrap bag).
I used this sketch from Sketchabilities:
