My March Stash Buster

I was so busy in February with my new Close to My Heart products that I really didn’t dig into my stash at all.  I’m hoping to do more this month but I can’t believe we are already halfway through!  My personal stash buster for March is chipboard so I hope you will be seeing a lot of it.  My basket is overflowing so my goal is that it will be more manageable by the end of the month.

Pin It

Supplies used: Crate Paper Prudence Collection Kit, CTMH Colonial White Ricrac, Martha Stewart border punch, Recollections floral embellishment, and chipboard hearts.  October 2011 Page Map sketch.

I don’t think this is a bad layout but I would agree with Christine “it’s not your best Mom”.  It was fun to pull out some different papers to use.  I made sure I used chipboard on the layout and the hearts turned out to be a nice (different for me) addition.

Dance Buddies Layout

Pin It

Supplies used: SEI Glitzmas paper, CTMH cardstock, CTMH Playful Flourishes stamp set, Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge by CTMH, CTMH Black ink, KI Memories Flourish Borders, Kaiser Rhinestones, CTMH Color-Ready Hodge Podge Alphabet Stickers, Martha Stewart Carrara Marble Glitter, and Recollections Glitter Shapes.

These sparkly pictures needed a page with lots of sparkle.  I think I added that.  I ordered the SEI paper online and for some reason only got one sheet and when I went back they were sold out.  It must have looked different on my computer screen because I love it in person and was wondering why I didn’t order 2 sheets.  I stamped the Pacifica blue cardstock with stamps from Playful Flourishes (one of my all-time favorite sets).  I used the new CTMH Ruler for lining up the rhinestones for an embellishment border.  I pictured glittery white letters for my title and really thought I’d find some in my stash but no such luck.  So I had to create my own.  I used a Zig Glue Pen to apply adhesive to the alphabet stickers, then covered with glitter and let dry.

Friendships that Last Girl Scout Layout

Supplies used: Martha Stewart border punch, CTMH Chocolate Cardstock, and K & Company Girl Scouts paper.

Bravo to me for using a punch!  I don’t use them often but not I might have to more.  I sure do like the Martha Stewart punches much better than the Fiskars ones I have.  This is one of those blah layouts for me.  I just don’t like it and not sure why.  It’s not awful enough to redo so it counts as one more done…

Princess Card

IMG_1797

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.
