This was a layout I finished at the end of February. One of my goals for the month was to finish up the Clementine Paper Packet. I’ve decided that I am going to continue with that as a monthly goal…to use up a paper pack (or at least to the point of a few scraps to go in my cardmaking scrap bag).
I used this sketch from Sketchabilities:
For the (retired) Superhero Workshop on the Go Kit, the bonus project was party decorations. They were really cute but I didn’t have a use for them. So I used the pieces on these “cards”. But they are not tradition cards that you open. It is a standard card size but only the FUN-COOL-WISH parts open up for a saying. I will most likely sign our names here as well or I could write something on the back. Have you ever done something like this? It’s a first for me. The WISH one is by far my favorite. I would have done them all like this but I was trying to be creative. Not sure I will make anything like this again but it was a good way to use up some supplies that I had.
The January Challenge at Scrap Our Stash is “Tag You’re it!” (create a layout with You and Tags). This was a difficult one for me because there are not many pictures with me in them and I don’t use much for tags. Here is my layout:
I really dug deep in my stash for this one! I found these blossoms to start my layout, then I found the tag (from a swap years ago! Thanks Kessie Glass!). The tag gave me a focal point and added detail to the layout. It’s pretty simple but not bad for one I was struggling with. I like the burlap ribbon on this layout….not sure if/how I would have used it otherwise. Now that it’s finished, the only thing I wish I had done differently is sprayed the blossoms with some glitter mist.
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!
