6th Grade Layout

6th Grade Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies are all CTMH unless otherwise noted: Clementine Paper Packet, Color-Ready Cork Alphabet, Burlap Ribbon, Milepost Shapes (retired), Juniper Marker, Dimensional Elements Awards, Brown Bag ink (retired), Brown Bag cardstock (retired), Basic Grey Pearls, and Prima flowers.  Challenges: Scrapbook.com – Page Maps Sketch Challenge

I used this Sketch Thursday sketch by rotating it and using one photo instead of two:

I am really happy with this layout.  Cork, burlap, and corrugated items are not what I typically use and these items are bound to end up buried in my stash.  So I am proud to have used them and I think I like it because I mixed them with other things that I do enjoy using, like flowers and pearls.  I used the new CTMH Alcohol Markers to color the cork letters.

Making Music Layout

Making Music Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: Echo Park Summertime papers and stickers, Basic Grey Rhinestones, CTMH Hello Blooms stamp set, and CTMH Lagoon ink.  Challenge: Scrapbook.com – Page Maps Sketch Challenge

Catfish Bay LO

Supplies used: Unknown papers, Karen Foster Sparkle Burst Brads, Basic Grey Bling It Rhinestones, and Plantin SchoolBook Cricut cartridge.

I really like the colors of this layout and the bling brads were a perfect match!  I wonder if I have another page that is similar to finish the pack of brads with…

Use it or Lose it – Challenge 6 Rainbows

Challenge #6 for Use it or Lose it is Rainbows.  You can use the colors, use rain, clouds, or rainbows, however you want to interpret it.

When I hear the word rainbow, I think a rainbow of color.  My new Dotty for You Paper Packet was sitting on my desk at the time and I couldn’t help but notice the variety of colors in this packet so that’s where it started.  My daughter was helping me and found the First Birthday title which surprisingly went with the papers and it came together from there.  The paper isn’t exactly what I consider using up my stash because it is brand new but I mixed it with some older things from my stash so think that counts too!  The flip flaps are not shown but I will be using them for a pile of 4×6 photos on the left page.


Supplies used: CTMH Dotty For You Paper Packet, Cock-A-Doodle Designs Page Topper, Recollections Lace Borders, Paper Studio epoxy stickers, Basic Grey Bling It, and CTMH Flip Flaps.  August 2011 Page Map.
