This was a layout from the Superhero Workshop on the Go Kit. You will see a theme in my upcoming posts; I am trying to finish up some layouts before my new product comes!

Sorry for the crappy photo…having camera issues today. I’m not sure I should admit that I have had this layout sitting around for <gasp> years! I’ve cleaned my scrapbook room this week and found it has made it’s way to the next step of having pictures with it. Really, all I needed to do is add the photos… At least it was an easy one for today when I am short on time! I will use flip flaps for to include all the individual family photos under the one on the right page of everyone. I used 3D Foam Tape to pop up the photos as needed around the dimensional element pieces. The Posterboard Alphabet stamp set that I used is great for many different techniques. I stamped it on my patterned paper, then cut out the letters for my title.
This month the Challenge at Scrap Our Stash is Stars & Stripes. I realized I really don’t have much for stars at all! So for my layout I opted to use striped paper (I’ve got plenty of that!) and embellish with some chipboard stars.
Supplies used: Pebbles pattern paper, Close to My Heart cardstock, Close to My Heart Dimensional Elements – Stars, Close to My Heart Dimensional Elements Alphabet, Close to My Heart Twilight, Honey, and Goldrush inks, Michael’s Rhinestones, and unknown journaling paper.
I often do one-photo layouts. One trick to filling up the page is by adding a border. If you look at this page, the blue strip is the backside of a scrap from the striped paper.
Supplies used: Wooden letters purchased at Hobby Lobby, CTMH Sophia Paper Pack, CTMH Sophia My Stickease, CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, Mod Podge, CTMH Sparkles, CTMH Hollyhock & White Daisy cardstock, CTMH Stardust Glitter Glitz, CTMH Hollyhock Stitched Ribbon, and CTMH Sparkle Flourishes.
This month’s challenge at Scrap Our Stash is to LEAP and you can interpret that however you like. For me, I have so many projects that I want to do but never have the time. So I decided to just leap into one of these and get it done! I purchased these letters at least 2 years ago for my scrapbook room with good intentions and never did anything with them. I am very pleased with how they turned out and I’m excited to have new decor to add to my room. I covered the letters first with the Sophia papers using Mod Podge, then added the embellishments. All the diecuts are cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. I added Glitter Glitz randomly to the flowers to give them a more real feel.
When I went to hang the letters, they didn’t fit exactly where I wanted them (centered over my dry erase board) so I did the same thing I think of when I’m doing a scrapbook page. I offset them instead of doing a straight line. I thought they fit that way but when I went to actually hang them, they didn’t. But they’re hung now and it’s done. I’m just going to try to not let it bother me that they are not centered.
The backs of the letters were flat and didn’t have anything to hang them. I used Command Picture Hanging Strips. They seem like they will hold now and the letters are not that heavy. I’ll update if they fall down.
