Everything ABC’s Blog Hop (Letter O)

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


If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda’s blog ~ Scrappy Therapy.  If you came from Catherine Nowak ~ catscrapbooking then you’re on the right track!

Oh So Happy Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies are all CTMH: Brushed Scrapbooking Workshop on the Go Kit, and Inks (Pixie, Black, & Canary).

I chose the letter O as the “Oh So Happy” in my title.  I didn’t really care for the Brushed paper but I love the WOTG layouts and they fit so many of my pictures perfectly.  I used the larger photo overlay as a mat for my picture instead of a frame and I will use Flip Flaps to add more photos in that spot.  For the square pictures on the right page, I cut the corners so the patterned paper underneath shows through.  For the pictures on the right page I used glue dots to first adhere my photo to the frame, then I used my regular adhesive to attach them to the page.

Your next stop on our Everything ABC’S blog Hop is Darlys Recker ~ Crafty Happy.

CTMH Technique Blog Hop – Simple Shadows


Welcome to this month’s CTMH Technique Blog Hop.  If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Melissa Robinson.

Vacation Layout by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: Seaside Paper Packet, Seaside Assortment, Cocoa Ink, Magic, and Urban Alphabet Stamp Set.

I created my shadow layering with stamping.  First, I stamped the letters on cardstock and cut them out.  Next I stamped directly on my background paper and positioned the cutout letters so they had a shadowed appearance.  This is way cool!  Click on the picture for a better view.

Now hop on over to Catherine Nowak!
