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:

WELCOME! I’m so glad you are joining us for our “Use Your Stash Blog Hop”. If you have already started, you should be coming from Cherri Hardcastle’s Blog. If this is your first stop, continue through until you make your way back here. This month’s theme is monochromatic (using one color).
Supplies used: DCWV paper, CTMH Glitz Glitter Gel – Green, Just Blooms Paper Shapes – Flutter, and American Crafts Thickers Chipboard Alphabet Stickers.
I’m not much for monochromatic, however it is a great choice for busy photos. My photos has so much color that by using one color in my layout it works well. I used the Glitter Glitz (which I love!) to add some sparkle directly to the page. I also used it to “color” my butterflies. Here’s a closeup:
Now hop on over to Judy Faye Garner’s Blog for more ideas on using up your stash.
Here is a list of participants:

Here are some gifts I made for my sister’s baby shower. She had twins so I made one for each. It just happened to work out that both their names as 6 letters and fit perfectly. I filled the pieces of the pie with yummy candy goodies for mommy. I don’t remember what these alterable containers were called or how makes them but I bought them at Archivers.

This month the Challenge at Scrap Our Stash is Stars & Stripes. I realized I really don’t have much for stars at all! So for my layout I opted to use striped paper (I’ve got plenty of that!) and embellish with some chipboard stars.
Supplies used: Pebbles pattern paper, Close to My Heart cardstock, Close to My Heart Dimensional Elements – Stars, Close to My Heart Dimensional Elements Alphabet, Close to My Heart Twilight, Honey, and Goldrush inks, Michael’s Rhinestones, and unknown journaling paper.
I often do one-photo layouts. One trick to filling up the page is by adding a border. If you look at this page, the blue strip is the backside of a scrap from the striped paper.
