I just love pictures of Miranda playing in the leaves and as soon as I saw this layout plan these pictures came to mind so it was an easy one to put together.

June 2012 CTMH Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Oldest Paper

WELCOME!  I’m so glad you are joining us for our “Use Your Stash Blog Hop”.  If you have already started, you should be coming from Debi Barber’sBlog.  If this is your first stop, continue through until you make your way back here.

This month we are pulling out some of our oldest Close to My Heart paper.

Supplies used: CTMH Between Friends Level 1, CTMH Opaque Mocha Adhesive Gems, CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, Petaloo Color Me Crazy Flowers, and Desert Sand ink.

This is among the oldest paper that I have.  I think I purchased it on clearance in my first days as a consultant.  Even though it’s old, the diecuts (not even stickers!) are going to work well for some teen girl pages.

Now hop on over to Michelle West’s Blog for more ideas on using up your stash.

If you get lost along the way you can see the entire list of hoppers on my previous post.

SOS May Challenge – Mother May I?

This month the Challenge over at Scrap Our Stash is “Mother May I”.  Go to one of your favorite blogs and find a layout to case or get inspiration from.  Visit Scrap Our Stash for all the details.

I chose this beautiful layout from Sherri Tozzi’s blog:

Here is my layout:


Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Silhouette Paper Packet (retired), Color-Ready Garden Wooden Shapes, journal tags (retired), Opaque Pearl Adhesive Gems, Black Ribbon Round (retired), Pink Sparkles, Black ink, and Desert Sand ink.

This was a fun challenge and helped me scrap pictures that I was struggling with because they had both pink and red in them.  The neutral papers solved this problem.

Adorable Baby Layout


I just used a few random supplies from my stash for this simple layout.  I do know that the flower centers are Making Memories Gem Stickers.

Decorated Mini Paint Cans – Great Gifts

I got these mini paint cans at the Target Dollar Spot and knew I would have a use for them.  The top one was used for a teacher’s gift.  The second can was part of a gift exchange for my daughter’s 5th grade girl gift.  We also made a journal which I will post in a couple days.  These are Christmas, but you can decorate them for any occasion.  All supplies are from my stash and I used the CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge for my diecuts.  I also added a tag with ribbon to the handle of the can.
