Thanks for joining us this month! If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Stephanie Chumbley’s Blog.
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Sophia Paper Packet (retired), Sophia My Stickease (retired), Clear Sparkle Flourishes, Sweet Leaf Ribbon (retired), Green Glitter Glitz, and Stardust Glitter Glitz.
The Sophia Paper Pack was one of my favorites. I still had some left along with the coordinating Stickease so I decided to use them for this challenge. These are both retired but I also added in some current product. The most common things I do with My Stickease is add 3D Foam Tape to add dimension, and add more embellishing to them in some way. You could use brads, ribbon, sparkles, or my recent favorite – Glitter Glitz. On my layout, I used Sweet Leaf Ribbon (retired), Sparkle Flourishes, and Stardust Glitter Glitz. I also used Green Glitter Glitz to add some color and sparkle to the scalloped paper at the top of the page. One more secret was the placement of the Stickease “buttons”… the scallop was a scrap that I had with my papers and it was a tad bit shorter than what I need for the page. I used these button stickers to fill the gap!

Sketch Challenges are something else that is new over at Scrap Our Stash. Please come join us! I love to use sketches! Sometimes I follow them exactly and other times they are just more of a starting point. Get creative, you can rotate the sketch, rotate photos, add/remove photo and journaling spots or replace one with the other. Stash Buster: also add mixed alphabets to your layout in your title or as part of your journaling. This is our first sketch:
Here is my layout:
Supplies used: CTMH Life Delights paper (retired), DCWV Alphabet Stickers, 7 Gypsies Pink Posy Velvet Flowers, CTMH Opaques Pearl Flourishes, Hero Arts Pearls, K & Company Life’s Journey Clearly Yours Alphabet, and CTMH Dark Chocolate Striped Ribbon.
I wasn’t sure about the letters on this layout at first. I left it and came back the next day. Funny thing is that I liked it right away. I dug deep in my stash for most everything on this layout.
There is still time to submit your layout at Scrap Our Stash. You have until March 29th.

This hop makes a circle so you can start and end where you like. If you have already started, you should be coming from Janet McCormick’s Blog.
There has been a lot going on at our house lately and I haven’t had much time to scrap. This is a project that has been sitting on my desk for a long time and I am happy to have it done.
Old: Parlor Velvet Rubons, My Creations Recipe/Photo Box, Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, and Grey Wool cardstock.
New: Avonlea Paper Packet, My Creations Recipe/Photo Box, Cricut Craft Room, and Black/Grey Sparkles.
These My Creations Recipe/Photo Boxes now hold our 2012 vacation photos. We took a lot of pictures that I wanted to print but I didn’t want an entire album of pages.
I consider the My Creations Recipe/Photo Box both old and new because I have had one for a very long time. They are still available and I ordered a second one when I got my pictures and realized there were more than I thought. The Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge is also still available but I have used it so much I consider it and oldie. I used Cricut Craft Room to create the tabbed index cards. These separate the different places we went and I plan to journal on the front of each card.
Here’s what the tabbed cards on the inside look like:

There is new ownership over at Scrap Our Stash. Come see the changes and check out the new challenges! Our first one is Kraft It Up. Create a layout using 50% kraft (paper, embellishments, etc.) The stash buster is metal. Use at least 3 pieces of metal embellishments (eyelets, brads, gears, hinges, etc.) on your layout.
Here’s my layout:
Supplies used: Close to My Heart Kraft Paper, unknown pattern paper from my stash (it’s from a stack), Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge, Creative Memories Circle Cutter, mulberry paper from stash, Making Memories Charmed Photo Corners, Making Memories Metal Flowers, Making Memories Metal Word, and Close to My Heart Milepost Shapes (retired).
First of all I have to say that I recently bought some Kraft paper because I see it everywhere and honestly…I hate it. So this was a true challenge for me! In an attempt to use up some of my kraft paper, I used it as the background of my layout. The decorative circle is cut from the Artiste cartridge (p.60 – Accent 4 – Shift – Fit to Page). I took the scraps from the inside of this circle image and flipped them around (double-sided paper) and used them to create the flower. I added another circle of mulberry paper that was buried deep in my stash. Do you remember this stuff? I even used my Creative Memories circle cutter. The shapes in the corners of the layout are layered metal pieces, 2 photo corners topped with the flower.
Now head over to Scrap Our Stash and submit your own layout. You have until March 29th.
