Lollydoodle Layout – A Giggle a Day

Lollydoodle Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: Make It from Your Heart™ Vol. 2: Pattern 10, Lollydoodle Paper Packet, Paper Fundamentals, Pink Glitter Paper, Lollydoodle My Stickease, Flamingo Dots, Washi Tape (I guess what I used is retired but you could substitute others) and cardstock (Juniper and Twilight).

I started this layout with the leftover B&T papers and embellishments from the Lollydoodle WOTG Kit and then added a bunch of the many new products like the Paper Fundamentals and Pink Glitter Paper!

Artbooking Layout Series – Celebration 2

Cherish 18-Month Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: CTMH Artbooking Cricut Collection, CTMH Dotty For You papers (retired special), CTMH White Daisy Cardstock, CTMH Scallop Border PunchCMTH Stitch Guide, and Kaisercraft Rhinestones.

The second page here uses the Celebration Layout overlay (flipped upside down).  The first page I designed myself with Photo Mat 1 from this same button.  I used the Stitch Guide to place the rhinestones.  The Cherish title is from page 80 of the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge and the numbers are cut from the font on this same cartridge.

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Babycakes Paper Packet, Babycakes My Stickease Assortment, and Chocolate Grosgrain Ribbon (retired).

For the letter B, I chose the BABYCAKES paper pack and My Stickease.  Using the coordinating paper and stickers makes a layout come together so quickly and always looks good!

Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Paper!

This is a great start for our first 2014 Use Your Stash Blog Hop- This month we are digging into our stash and using up that paper!  Anyone who has been scrapbooking for some time most likely has their fair share of paper.  Some have  a more serious case of stashing than others (I was looking through my stash the other day wondering if it would even be possible to use it all up!).

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.

Full of Fun Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: ProPlayer Paper Packet, Laughing Lola WOTG Stamp Set, Archival Black Ink, and ProPlayer Assortment.

I have to be honest and say I really didn’t dig very far into my stash for this one.  I am, however, working at using up my stash.  I am trying to use up the papers from 2013 before the new ones show up and they are forgotten. :-)  This layout is a perfect example of how you can re-use the WOTG stamp sets for many more future layouts with different paper packets.

I don’t have much of a system yet for my patterned papers (I need to work on that and will blog about it when I do) but what you may be interested in is how I sort my cardstock.  I have found that it is a great solution to choose one brand of cardstock and stick with it (for me that is CTMH).  In using the same colors I have become familiar with them and it makes choosing colors and scrapbooking in general faster.  You can see more in THIS POST about how I have organized my scraps and now I actually use them!
