CTMH Technique Blog Hop – Music to the Eyes

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

Life is Good layout by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: Chalk It Up Paper Packet, Chalk It Up Scrapbooking Workshop Stamp Set, Marvy Uchida LePen Journaling Pen, Flaxen from Paper Fundamentals Whimsy Assortment, Stitch GuideMake it From Your Heart – Volume 1 (Pattern 06), and Chalk It Up Assortment.

I used the Marvy Uchida LePen Journaling Pen along with the Stitch Guide to create faux stitching on my layout.  I did this on the Paper Fundamentals paper and you can see that it worked pretty well (not quite perfect, but close) on the glossy paper.  I also added some detail to the title stamped image with the Marvy Uchida LePen Journaling Pen.

Now hop on over to Michelle Loncar!

Everything ABC’s Blog Hop (Letter D)

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!  For this hop we will be featuring the letter D. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their D element will be featured in their post.  If you came from Linda Norman – Scrappy Therapy then you’re on the right track!

 

Dance Layout by Wendy Kessler

For my D, I chose DANCE, which is very popular at my house.  I realized after I uploaded this picture that I need to journal someplace on my layout yet.  My daughter’s dance team helped with a Fashion Show put on by one of the local schools and they performed two routines at the event.  If you are a fan of Project Runway, check out the second picture and you should recognize a couple people!  The layout is one from the Hopscotch Workshop and I replaced some of the patterned papers with cardstock.

Your next stop on our Everything ABC’S blog Hop is Janna Gray – The Creative Princess.
