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!

This was such a fun card to make! I found the princess crown (by K&Company) on clearance at Walmart and I’ve been wanting to use it. It lights up! The frame is CTMH’s Flower Power Stickease (retired). I used my Liquid Glass (CTMH) to draw the swirls and add glitter (Martha Stewart carrara marble). Then I added the dark pink rhinestones (Kaisercraft) as a finishing touch. Now I just don’t know where this card will end up because it is perfect for a little girl I know but she JUST had a birthday. It might have to wait for next year to come around. Whatever happens I know the recipient will be a little girl and she will love it.
