August 2012 CTMH Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Monochromatic

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:

 

Baby Shower Gifts

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.

Scrap Our Stash July Challenge – Stars & Stripes

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.

CTMH Dotty For You Blog Hop

A bunch of Close to My Heart consultants have gathered together once again to bring you a blog hop featuring the papers in the brand new Dotty For You Paper Packet.  The hop makes a circle so if you are starting here, continue until you make your way back.  If you are coming from Haley Dyer’s Blog you are on the right track.

The Dotty For You paper packet includes 24 specially designed, coordinated B&T Duos sheets (2 each of 12 patterns) and an artwork idea insert to get your creative juices flowing.  Spread the word and help us celebrate National Scrapbooking Month in May with this exclusive Dotty For You paper packet promotion.  Available April 17 (9:00am MST)- May 31 (11:59pm MST), while supplies last.  Get yours today!

Here’s what I have created for you today:


Supplies used are Close to My Heart unless noted: Dotty For You Paper Packet, Colonial White Grosgrain Ribbon (retired), Colonial White RicRac from the Colonial White Designer Ribbon Round Collection, Basic Buttons Assortment, Bamboo Waxy Flax, Dimensional Elements – HeartsHeavenly Blue ink, Smoothie ink, and DCWV Quote Stack.

I just love all the different colors that this paper pack has in it.  You can do many layouts and they will all look so different!  I really don’t care for the cloud paper and thought for sure it would be one that I would use the backside of but what do you know here it is showing up on my layout and it is perfect for these baby pictures!  My layout is also a copycat from the Studio J layout below.  I noticed the row of stitching and substituted it with ric rac.  I really like the mix if it with the line of ribbon.
