Scrap Our Stash Sketch #3

This month the Sketch with Stash Challenge #3 at Scrap Our Stash is to use this sketch and at least 3+ pre-made flowers from our stash.  This was an easy challenge for me because I LOVE both sketches and flowers!!

Princess Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: Stampin’ Up! Papers, American Crafts Elements Taffy Mini Jewel Brads, Making Memories Flower Metal Photo Corners, Studio 18 Gem Sticker, Prima Floral Embellishments, Bazzill Collection Cha Ching Brads, Recollections Boutique Fleur Floral Embellishments, Tattered Angels Pink Bubblegum Glimmer Mist, CTMH White Daisy Cardstock, and unknown felt flower ribbon.

This was one of those layouts that I didn’t like while I was doing it, not sure why.  When I left and came back to it, it didn’t seem so bad.  It won’t be a favorite but it passes for okay.

There is still time to submit your layout at Scrap Our Stash.  You have until May 29th.

Fabric Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Technique Blog Hop where we are focusing on FABRIC.  If you are starting here just continue until you make your way back.  If you have already started, you should be coming from Stephanie Chumbley.

Picture Perfect Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: Sophia Paper Packet (retired), Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, Chantilly Textiles, Harvest Baker’s Twine, Felt Alphabet – Keepsake (retired), Sparkle Flourishes, and Bitty Sparkles.

I have to admit when Close to My Heart came out with these fabrics I really wasn’t sure what to do with them.  It’s great that they coordinate with different papers but I have a feeling they will last me a very long time.  For my layout I used the fabric to create the butterflies and flowers.  The butterflies are roughly 2″ squares of fabric cut with pinking shears on the sides.  To create the flowers I first cut a long strip (about 1/2″) of fabric.  Then I twisted it so the pattern was mostly on the outside and from there I twisted it further into a circle.  As I did the final twisting, I used 1″ glue dots to adhere it to my paper flower.  The inside of the small flower is a strip of fabric tied in a loose knot with the ends cut off.  At first, I planned to use knots with the ends but I didn’t like it so I used those (they look like little bows) in the upper corner of my layout.  I used this sketch from Scrappy Sketches.

And here are some closeup pics:

Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Something Old with Something New

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 PacketMy 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:

Lights on/off Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Sophia Paper Packet (retired), Sophia My Stickease (retired), Felt Alphabet Stickers – Keepsake,   Clear Sparkles, Bitty Sparkles, Bling Assortment (retired), and 3D Foam Tape.

I just love how My Stickease make pages come together so quickly!  And it’s fun to add a little bit of other embellishments to make them pop.  I wanted to add journaling but didn’t know where to put it and was happy when it turned out so well by writing on the dull area of my photo!  I also love sketches and used the this one by Ashley Horton.
