Throughout this hop you will see My Stickease and/or Rubons used on all of the projects.

You can start the hop here and continue until you make your way back.  If you have already started, you should be coming from Shirley’s Blog.

Lights on/off Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Sophia Paper Packet (retired), Sophia My Stickease (retired), Felt Alphabet Stickers – Keepsake,   Clear Sparkles, Bitty Sparkles, Bling Assortment (retired), and 3D Foam Tape.

I just love how My Stickease make pages come together so quickly!  And it’s fun to add a little bit of other embellishments to make them pop.  I wanted to add journaling but didn’t know where to put it and was happy when it turned out so well by writing on the dull area of my photo!  I also love sketches and used the this one by Ashley Horton.

Now hop on over to Tabbi’s Blog!

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.

Embellish…your MM organizer!

Gee, this might turn into a mini series of decorating your scrapbooking tools and more!  It all started when I finally got around to decorating these jars.

Products used: MM organizer, CTMH Tickled Pink papers, CTMH Sparkles, Kaiser rhinestones, Prima Say it in Style Crystals, Petaloo flowers, and Mod Podge.

Products used: MM organizer, My Mind’s Eye papers, unknown flowers, Heidi Swapp chipboard letters, MM paint, unknown ribbon, Dress It Up Glitter Dots, K & Company Grand Adhesions butterflies, and Mod Podge.

Products used: MM organizer, GCD Studios papers, DCWV Glitter stack papers, Cosmo Cricket chipboard letters, Michael’s rhinestones, Darice rhinestones, MM paint, unknown ribbon, and Mod Podge.

Embellish is defined as: to make beautiful, decorate.  This is exactly what I have been doing with all my scrapbook organizers and tools lately.  It makes my scrapbook room even more enjoyable and inspiring.  These Making Memories desk organizers come in a plain white.  They are nice as is but I have enjoyed making them my own.  I bought one from Crop Chocolate and had trouble finding more after that.  I thought I found a good deal on my additional ones and was disappointed.  I learned that even though they advertise with the same picture and they are both MM, I should have bought the ones that were $40 and not $20.  The first one I got is actually wood, solid, and heavy.  The other ones I thought I found at a decent price are cheap cardboard/chipboard-like.  They are very like-weight and will definitely not last as long.  Christine wasn’t very happy with me that she had to trade with me so I could have the nice one :-) but I made it up to her by decorating them.  Now if Michael’s ever gets my set of drawers in again I will show you some other things I have done.  Have a great day!

2010 Layout Challenge: 27 & 28 of 210

Sisters Scrapbook Layout

Products used: Prima Say it in Crystals, Queen & Co. Felt Fusion, Darice rhinestones, Kaisercraft rhinestones, Miss Elizabeth vellum sticker, Heidi Grace patterned paper, CTMH cardstock, and unknown letter buttons.  Based on a sketch from ScrapSketch.  Layout Challenge: #24 of 210.

This month I am a guest designer at Scrap Our Stash.  The March challenge is to combine the old with the new.  That was the inspiration for this layout.  I pulled the paper out of my “old” collection and I have had those letters forever and just haven’t gotten around to using them.  The vellum sticker quote was also from my old stash.  The felt border and bling are both new favorites.  I used Bazzill Basics scalloped circle and traced it on the back of my pattern paper and cut out for my own diecut piece.  I also added the rhinestones to the felt flower border.  Be sure to check out the Scrap Our Stash Challenge!  I’d love to see your new/old combinations!
