January 2012 Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Cherish Layout using Topstitch

WELCOME!  I’m so glad you are joining us for our very first “Use Your Stash Blog Hop”.  This hop is made up of all Close to My Heart consultants who have banded together to use some of the many things we have just sitting around and not getting used.  This will be a monthly blog hop.  I know I am really looking forward to using up some of my older product.  I hope it will give you some fresh ideas and inspire you to do the same.  If you have already started, you should be coming from Michelle Battitori’ s Blog.  If this is your first stop, continue through until you make your way back here.

Today I am using Topstitch papers and My Stickease.

Supplies used: CTMH Topstitch Paper Packet, CTMH Colonial White Mini-Medley, CTMH Topstitch My Stickease, and CTMH Chocolate Waxy Flax.

I have been waiting to scrap these pictures.  I knew as soon as I saw them that I would use this paper.  Today was the day I dug it out and it all came together beautifully!  I really need to dig out more My Stickease because they make for some quick, easy, and great-looking pages!

Now hop on over to Judy Garner’ s Blog for more ideas on using up your stash.

If you get lost along the way you can see the entire list of hoppers on my previous post.

Dance Buddies Layout

Pin It

Supplies used: SEI Glitzmas paper, CTMH cardstock, CTMH Playful Flourishes stamp set, Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge by CTMH, CTMH Black ink, KI Memories Flourish Borders, Kaiser Rhinestones, CTMH Color-Ready Hodge Podge Alphabet Stickers, Martha Stewart Carrara Marble Glitter, and Recollections Glitter Shapes.

These sparkly pictures needed a page with lots of sparkle.  I think I added that.  I ordered the SEI paper online and for some reason only got one sheet and when I went back they were sold out.  It must have looked different on my computer screen because I love it in person and was wondering why I didn’t order 2 sheets.  I stamped the Pacifica blue cardstock with stamps from Playful Flourishes (one of my all-time favorite sets).  I used the new CTMH Ruler for lining up the rhinestones for an embellishment border.  I pictured glittery white letters for my title and really thought I’d find some in my stash but no such luck.  So I had to create my own.  I used a Zig Glue Pen to apply adhesive to the alphabet stickers, then covered with glitter and let dry.

Sharing from the Heart Blog Hop – January 2012

The Sharing from the Heart Blog Hop is a mixture of Close to My Heart consultants and customers who have come together to share their projects.  The hop makes a circle so if you have started here, just continue until you make your way back.  If you are coming from Adeline’s Blog, then you are on the right path.

This month’s theme choices were: SOTM, Valentine, or Winter.  I chose Valentine’s.

Supplies used are all CTMH: Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, My Creations Banner, Sweetheart Paper Pack, Silver Brads, Mad About You stamp set (December SOTM), Bling Assortment Buttons, Black Waxy Flax, 3D foam tape, Crochet Flowers, and Cotton Candy, Black, & Tulip inks.

This paper was on clearance for only $3 for the pack.  It was one of my favorites so I just had to get another one.  When we had Valentines as an option for this blog hop it arrived at the perfect time.  At first I was going to make a card, then I thought maybe a layout, then I remembered that I wanted banners for holidays throughout the year.  There is plenty of paper in a paper pack so I decided to go for it and the great thing is I would have it done for the upcoming holiday!

I cut the scalloped pennants using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge at 7″.  I cut cardstock for the base on the ones that I used B&T paper on.  I also mounted all the pieces on the My Creations chipboard Banner.  One thing I noticed when I used the inside and out of the banners and I flipped some over to use the different patterns on the paper…the inside piece did not match up if I flipped it over.  You’d think that with this pattern it wouldn’t matter but it must be off a little, just enough to not line up.  On those pieces I added embellishments to cover up the space.  Next time I make one, if I use this same pattern, I will use the cardstock as my base again and just use one piece of B&T paper so I don’t have to worry about it matching up exact.  Letters are also cut with the Art Philosophy cartridge at 2″.

Here’s closer pictures because it looks much better when you can see it up close.

Your next stop is Lori’s Blog.

This is my most favorite paper from the 2011 Fall/Winter Idea Book!  After completing the pages and cards, I just keeping looking at them because they are so beautiful.  I was excited about this pack because we had just taken family photos (doesn’t happen very often) and I knew they would go perfect with this paper pack!  The above layouts are from the workshop.  I swapped out the background on the one and used Olive Cardstock and used the backside of the B&T that I was supposed to use to create the layouts below.  I used paper and embellishments that were leftover from the workshop and bonus project materials.

Come back tomorrow to see the beautiful cards that you can create as the bonus project to this workshop.
