Products used: Prima Say it in Crystals, Queen & Co. Felt Fusion, Darice rhinestones, Kaisercraft rhinestones, Miss Elizabeth vellum sticker, Heidi Grace patterned paper, CTMH cardstock, and unknown letter buttons. Based on a sketch from ScrapSketch. Layout Challenge: #24 of 210.
This month I am a guest designer at Scrap Our Stash. The March challenge is to combine the old with the new. That was the inspiration for this layout. I pulled the paper out of my “old” collection and I have had those letters forever and just haven’t gotten around to using them. The vellum sticker quote was also from my old stash. The felt border and bling are both new favorites. I used Bazzill Basics scalloped circle and traced it on the back of my pattern paper and cut out for my own diecut piece. I also added the rhinestones to the felt flower border. Be sure to check out the Scrap Our Stash Challenge! I’d love to see your new/old combinations!

Stampin’ for the Weekend – Fiona’s sketch
Penny’s Challenge #20 – Chalks
Quixotic Challenge #10 – Ink up an old stamp
I stamped the flower with Versamark ink and then rubbed chalk over the top with an applicator. It is so much fun to see the color appear! I finished the stamped image and really liked it but the paper I had picked out for it just didn’t look right so it took me awhile before I ran across this paper. It’s very different colors than what I was looking for but I love them! I liked the ribbon for this card and added multiple layers for a more solid look. The stamp I used is from a set that I just had to have. It was fun to finally use it!

Products used: DCWV Luxury Stack, Cricut Mini Monograms cartridge, Sandylion vellum Disney stickers, Kaisercraft Pearls, Cricut Storybook cartridge, and Cricut Home Accents cartridge.
I used more paper from the Luxury stack. I love the pearls with this paper. I made the title with the Cricut Ink Colors. I have wanted to try these for a long time and I finally bought some with my Christmas money. I like them! It’s another great way to add a title.

ScrapSketch is back up and running! I am so excited! These are the first 2 sketches for January and my layouts:
Products used: CTMH Stardust paper, CTMH Stardust Stickease, Lyrical Letters Cricut cartridge, Accents Essentials Cricut cartridge, Queen & Co. felt fusion, and Kaisercraft rhinestones.
2010 Layout Challenge: #14 of 210
Products used: DCWV Luxury Stack, Disney Jolee’s boutique by EK Success, Cricut Mini Monograms cartridge, Sandylion vellum Disney stickers, Kaisercraft Pearl Strips (pink), and unknown 3D butterflies/flowers and organdy ribbon.
I am very pleased with this layout. I used the Diecuts with a View paper from a stack that I bought online and I didn’t like it as well when I got it so it became buried in my stash. It was the perfect colors for these layouts and I don’t think I noticed before that it had a sheen shine that is very pretty. The pearls I used come in strips and I used them to create my own flourishes and used the remaining pearls as centers for the flowers. I’ll have a layout tomorrow using ScrapSketch #3.

Products used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted): Evensong Level 2 Paper Packet, Evergreen stamp set, Chocolate Alphabet Large, Evensong Stickease, Cranberry Ribbon Round, Liquid Glass, Holiday Fabric Tags, Jolee’s dimensional stickers by EK Success, and Kaisercraft Pearls.
I started these layouts before Christmas using the Evensong Workshop on the Go guides. Then I made more pages with the paper that was left. Today I finished them up by adding pictures, journaling, and embellishments. I had to take the Santa and reindeer sticker apart to make it fit the way I wanted. It originally came to be adhered up/down the long way. I wanted mine to go across the top of the page. In order to make it work I took the middle reindeer off the reins and turned it around. I cut the reins in the middle because they were too long and hid the seam under the middle reindeer. It worked great. The only thing I regret is not taking the entire sticker off the backing. You can see how the middle reindeer doesn’t have the transparent sticker behind it. I just added my own adhesive and I think it looks much nicer. I didn’t notice it until it was already down and then there was no way it was going to come off nicely so it’s staying where it is and I’m calling it done.
Something I like to do is try to use up an entire paper packet. I did that with the Evensong paper after I made my layouts by making the cards HERE. It’s a great feeling of accomplishment to use it all up and it is also amazing just how much you can get out of one paper pack.
These are my first layouts of the year so I am starting at 5 of 210 for 2010!
