Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Superhero Workshop on the Go Kit (retired), Believe Paper Packet (retired), Black Baker’s Twine, Cranberry Grosgrain Ribbon (retired), Black ink, and Black Button Brads. Mojo Monday #274
With the start of a new year, I decided to do some cleaning in my scrapbook room. It’s really amazing what you can find sometimes! I found these embellishments that I had made and hadn’t used yet. Then I saw the Mojo Monday sketch and thought I would just use them up right away instead of stashing them away! For that last card, I needed some more color than the scraps I was working with and couldn’t find (or don’t have any more) of the Superhero papers. You will never guess where that tiny piece of Sky-colored star paper came from!….the Believe Christmas paper!! I just love Close to My Heart’s double-sided paper for reasons like this. It was just what I was looking for!

D1195 The Works Alphabet $17.95
Supplies used: CTMH The Works Alphabet stamp set, Die Cuts With a View papers, CTMH Pacifica ink, Making Memories felt flowers, and American Crafts Elements Medium Glitter Brads.
This is a great size alphabet set for longer titles, subtitles, or when you only have a small space on your page. I also love that it includes uppercase, lowercase, numbers and punctuation for just $17.95.
I have to admit that I started the title on this layout straight and for some reason couldn’t see the letter “o” correctly. So I’m sharing a secret with you…even though the clear stamps are AWESOME for lining up exactly where you want them, sometimes that doesn’t work or we are plain lazy. I love to move my letters around so they are intentionally not straight. That way there is no messing up and look how cute and playful it looks on this layout! It is also a good option if your title is a tight fit on the page because you can arrange the letters to take up less room. Note that I stamped on textured cardstock and it stamped very clear, just make sure your ink pad is not dry so you get the good coverage.
This was actually a 4-page layout. This is something I will do when I have a lot of pictures for a particular event. I will scrapbook them in the same papers/embellishments so they are easily recognized as one event. Here are the other pages:

Supplies used: DCWV paper, American Crafts Thickers Chipboard Alphabet Stickers, Baby Blue Stickles by Ranger, unknown brads.
This layout is for the September Challenge at Scrap Our Stash. It’s Back To School but not the theme as it implies. Instead, you choose your own B, T, and S. For example, my challenge was B =Brads, T = Thickers, and S = Stickles. I just love the colors of this layout! And this DCWV paper is so easy to create a quick layout. I use the Stickles to add some sparkle to the paper in the flower centers. The brads are added to the flower centers on the middle right of the page, and I had to add a bit more Stickles to this area as well. Last, the Thickers are used for the title. I have such a hard time coming up with titles. I found this one at The Perfect Title, my favorite place for ideas! Here’s a closeup of the Stickles:

D1386 Save the Date – English
This is a layout from an old paper stack that I had pick together years ago. I’ve finally added pictures and today I was able to complete it with journaling and embellishments. When I first see this Save the Date stamp set I think of calendars but it can also be used on layouts. I used the word “summer” to add to my border by stamping it at the top and then twice more before re-inking. I really don’t do much for journaling so this is a great stamp set to use to add a date to my layout. I had to dig for the Karen Foster sparkle burst brads. I knew I had a some left from a previous layout and knew they would be perfect, luckily I found them.
