Supplies used: Flaire Designs All Star Collection Paper, Scrappin’ Sports & More Volleyball Rubon-Ons, CTMH Button – Black Assortment, CTMH Slate Polka-Dot Washi Tape, CTMH Game On stamp set, CTMH Whisper cardstock, and CTMH Slate ink.
Challenge: Scrapbook.com – Page Maps Sketch Challenge
I used this sketch from Sketch Support:
What started out as a dreaded layout turned into a happy ending. I think the sketch was what did it for me. It is very hard to get good sports (action) photos and the smaller photos suggested on this sketch made me “zoom in” on the action and really focus on my daughter. I have to say that this is my first use of Washi Tape and OMG I am in love – very cool stuff! I have to also say that these rubons are wonderful…you will be seeing them in the near future as I finish a couple more volleyball layouts.

I missed posting this on Sunday so here you go.
C1463 Harvest Happiness
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Harvest Happiness stamp set, Mini-Medley Accents Antiqued Gold, Bronze Glitter Glitz, Cocktail Alphabet stamp set, Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, and inks (Autumn Terracotta, Cocoa, and Goldrush). Sketch from Got Sketch.
This stamp set is one that coordinates with the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. I just love this! I cut the leaves in the upper left of the page with the Art Philosophy cartridge then stamped my image, so much faster and easier than cutting them out by hand! I created the border along the left with one of the leaf images and added Glitter Glitz throughout the page for some bling.

Supplies used are all CTMH: (retired) papers, Playful Flourishes stamp set (retired), Chocolate cardstock, Chocolate ink, Baby Pink cardstock (retired), Just Blooms flower (retired), Solos 1 stamp set (retired), Chocolate grosgrain ribbon (retired), button (retired), and Colonial White Waxy Flax.
The October 2012 Scrap Our Stash Challenge is “Hot Chocolate”. I just love to use a chocolate-color brown on my layouts and my favorite color combination is brown and pink. For this layout I felt that the background layout was a bit plain so I random-stamped flourishes using chocolate ink on the chocolate cardstock. This added a bit of pattern without making the layout too busy. These 8×10 photos can be difficult to scrap but this was was a breeze.

D1527 Perfect Fit – Frames
This stamp set coordinates with the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, which makes it so easy to cut and stamp. What a perfect way to make tags for Christmas, birthdays, or any other occasion! These were so quick and easy to make! I stamped most of them with one color but you could use the rock n’ roll technique like I did on the pink/purple circle or add multiple colors with a sponge dauber. You can add a small sentiment to the center, a to/from, or just the name of the person receiving the gift. I used the Salutation Seals and Casual Expressions stamp sets. You could also use these as embellishments on a page or other project. You can rotate two of the frames for a total of 6 different looks. Just stamp and leave as is or add pearls, sparkles, ribbon, and other accessories to add more details.
Some of the things I used to embellish:
Glitter Glitz Gel
Tags: buttons, Cricut, CTMH, flowers, pearls, rhinestones, ribbon, sparkles, stamping, staples, studs

A1123 Adore $6.95
Supplies used: CTMH Adore stamp set, unknown papers, ScrapWorks Tailored Letters, CTMH Cotton Candy ink, CTMH Buttons, and Rangers Cotton Candy Stickles.
The letters I used are really cute but I have to say you sure don’t get much in a package. I opened this and had to make the second “o” from the “q”. It worked but not exact. I think this is such a beautiful stamp set. I’m also going to make some “love” cards with it as well. Then, because I don’t care to thread buttons but I like the finished look, I tried something new. I added Stickles to the middle of my buttons. And I like it!! I just filled in the holes but I’m sure you could add more across the middle to appear like a stitch.
