Here’s the next sketch at Scrap Our Stash! This time, use at least 6 buttons from your stash.
Here’s my layout:
Supplies used: Close to My Heart Buzz & Bumble Paper Packet, Close to My Heart Color-Ready Cork Alphabet, Making Memories buttons and flowers, and other Close to My Heart misc. retired embellishments.
I had a little trouble with the circle on this one. I used the outside of a bowl to place the buttons but next time I will draw a line with pencil and then place the buttons. Because of the different sizes, they didn’t line up as nice as I wanted them to. This is a very different layout for me because of the colors but they worked well with the photos and I’ve almost used up this paper packet now.
There is still time to submit your layout at Scrap Our Stash. You have until April 29th.

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.

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart unless noted: Clementine Paper Packet, Twilight Cardstock, Burlap Ribbon, Basic Brads (retired), and Michael’s Paper Flowers.
This was a layout I finished at the end of February. One of my goals for the month was to finish up the Clementine Paper Packet. I’ve decided that I am going to continue with that as a monthly goal…to use up a paper pack (or at least to the point of a few scraps to go in my cardmaking scrap bag).
I used this sketch from Sketchabilities:

Supplies are all CTMH unless otherwise noted: Clementine Paper Packet, Color-Ready Cork Alphabet, Burlap Ribbon, Milepost Shapes (retired), Juniper Marker, Dimensional Elements Awards, Brown Bag ink (retired), Brown Bag cardstock (retired), Basic Grey Pearls, and Prima flowers. Challenges: Scrapbook.com – Page Maps Sketch Challenge
I used this Sketch Thursday sketch by rotating it and using one photo instead of two:
I am really happy with this layout. Cork, burlap, and corrugated items are not what I typically use and these items are bound to end up buried in my stash. So I am proud to have used them and I think I like it because I mixed them with other things that I do enjoy using, like flowers and pearls. I used the new CTMH Alcohol Markers to color the cork letters.

The January Challenge at Scrap Our Stash is “Tag You’re it!” (create a layout with You and Tags). This was a difficult one for me because there are not many pictures with me in them and I don’t use much for tags. Here is my layout:
Supplies used: Making Memories Printed Blossoms, unknown papers, and Jest Charming Burlap Ribbon.
I really dug deep in my stash for this one! I found these blossoms to start my layout, then I found the tag (from a swap years ago! Thanks Kessie Glass!). The tag gave me a focal point and added detail to the layout. It’s pretty simple but not bad for one I was struggling with. I like the burlap ribbon on this layout….not sure if/how I would have used it otherwise. Now that it’s finished, the only thing I wish I had done differently is sprayed the blossoms with some glitter mist.
