Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Magnificent Metals

This hop is a circle; if you have just started simply continue until you make your way back here; if you have already started, you should be coming from Joy McHargue.

Girl Scout Bridging Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Cardstock (Outdoor Denim and Brown Bag (retired)), Ivy Lane Paper Packet, Jubilee Paper PacketPaper Fundamentals Basic Assortment, Skylark Complements, Durable Studs – Square (retired), Harvest Charms (retired), and Make It from Your Heart Volume 2 (Pattern 2).

I really enjoyed putting this layout together because it really is a stash buster.  I used old metals as well as scraps left from new papers, using up multiple paper packets.  For the metal I found some old accents that went with a specific paper packet.  This is a good example of thinking outside the box with these specific embellishments.  The complements that I used were also specific but I was able to mix those in as well.  I really wanted to use antique brads but it’s been so long I can’t find them (!) so I used the studs instead.

Now hop on over to Janet McCormick!

Ivy Lane Card Kit by Wendy Kessler

This kit provides supplies and instructions to create a total of 15 cards (5 each of these three designs): 

Ivy Lane Card 1 by Wendy Kessler

Ivy Lane Card 2 by Wendy Kessler

 

The instructions call for Pear ink but I didn’t think that looked right so I changed it on this card and used Olive Ink instead.  You can see the difference from card 1 (used Pear on the sentiment) and card 2 (used Olive on the flower).  If I could do it again, I would use Olive on both but with all that masking already done I really didn’t want to redo it. :-)

Ivy Lane Card 3 by Wendy Kessler

I altered this last design by using the B&T paper for the banner on the bottom and the Inspiration Flourishes Stamp Set.  Don’t be afraid to change up the cards like this to make them suit your own personal needs!

Hoo-ray! Birthday Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Make It From Your Heart Volume 1 (Pattern 4), Ariana Paper Packet, Lollydoodle Paper Packet, Ivy Lane Paper Packet, Pink Glitter Paper, Lollydoodle Complements, Lollydoodle Assortment, Sparkle Flourishes, White Daisy Cardstock, Cotton Candy Washi Tape (retired), Flamingo Dots, Cricut Art Philosophy Collection, Corner Rounder, and 3D Foam Tape.

This layout is a great example of how you can mix and match all the paper packs and embellishments!  Who would have thought that Ariana, Ivy Lane, and Lollydoodle could all be used together?!?  What I really used were all the scraps left over after completing the Workshop on the Go Kits for each of these papers.  I am very pleased with this layout of “scraps”!  I cut the number with using Art Philosophy, layered it with Washi Tape, and trimmed the edges.  I used this same technique for the polka dot border on the top.  Sorry, I keep forgetting that the Cotton Candy Washi Tape is retired; I just really like it!  For this layout you could substitute another Washi Tape.  There are many that would coordinate.

Sheila Bennett is your next stop!

New Product Blog Hop – Using Zip Strips

Today I’ve got another entry in the New Product Blog Hop.  I’m on a roll!

Life is Sweet Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Paper Fundamentals Basic Assortment, Ariana Paper Packet (zip strips), Ivy Lane Paper Packet (zip strips), Glitter Shimmer Trim and Sequin Dot Assortment (from the Ivy Lane Cardmaking Workshop Kit), Ivy Lane Assortment, Ivy Lane Scrapbooking Workshop Stamp Set, Inspiration Flourishes Stamp Set, Cashmere Cardstock, Inks (Smokey Plum and Olive), Scallop Border Punch, and Cricut Artiste Collection.

I was inspired by this sketch which is great for using zip strips!  And the Ariana and Ivy Lane strips go well together.  (Zip Strips are the added part of 12×12 B&T sheets, usually with product info on one side and CTMH utilizes these by making the opposite side decorative.)  The Paper Fundamentals was the perfect foundation.  Again, I used leftovers from the Workshop on the Go Kits.
