The June Challenge at Scrap Our Stash is a All About Our Guys! Create a Male layout using at least 5 brads from your stash! What a great challenge for the month of June with Father’s Day.
Here is my layout:
Supplies used: CTMH Later Sk8r Paper Packet, CTMH Fast and Furious stamp set, CTMH inks (Slate, Pear, Outdoor Denim, and Lagoon), Bazzill Collection Metals – Mono Mix Brads, and Making Memories Plain Charmed Photo Corners.
With three girls, I rarely do masculine layouts. However, I had these pictures of my nephew and they were begging for me to use this stamp set! The brads were easy to incorporate and I also added some metal from my stash.
What will you create? Go to Scrap Our Stash to submit your own layout. You have until June 29th.

This month the Sketch with Stash Challenge #3 at Scrap Our Stash is to use this sketch and at least 3+ pre-made flowers from our stash. This was an easy challenge for me because I LOVE both sketches and flowers!!
Supplies used: Stampin’ Up! Papers, American Crafts Elements Taffy Mini Jewel Brads, Making Memories Flower Metal Photo Corners, Studio 18 Gem Sticker, Prima Floral Embellishments, Bazzill Collection Cha Ching Brads, Recollections Boutique Fleur Floral Embellishments, Tattered Angels Pink Bubblegum Glimmer Mist, CTMH White Daisy Cardstock, and unknown felt flower ribbon.
This was one of those layouts that I didn’t like while I was doing it, not sure why. When I left and came back to it, it didn’t seem so bad. It won’t be a favorite but it passes for okay.
There is still time to submit your layout at Scrap Our Stash. You have until May 29th.

Here’s the next sketch at Scrap Our Stash! This time, use at least 6 buttons from your stash.
Here’s my layout:
Supplies used: Close to My Heart Buzz & Bumble Paper Packet, Close to My Heart Color-Ready Cork Alphabet, Making Memories buttons and flowers, and other Close to My Heart misc. retired embellishments.
I had a little trouble with the circle on this one. I used the outside of a bowl to place the buttons but next time I will draw a line with pencil and then place the buttons. Because of the different sizes, they didn’t line up as nice as I wanted them to. This is a very different layout for me because of the colors but they worked well with the photos and I’ve almost used up this paper packet now.
There is still time to submit your layout at Scrap Our Stash. You have until April 29th.

There is new ownership over at Scrap Our Stash. Come see the changes and check out the new challenges! Our first one is Kraft It Up. Create a layout using 50% kraft (paper, embellishments, etc.) The stash buster is metal. Use at least 3 pieces of metal embellishments (eyelets, brads, gears, hinges, etc.) on your layout.
Here’s my layout:
Supplies used: Close to My Heart Kraft Paper, unknown pattern paper from my stash (it’s from a stack), Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge, Creative Memories Circle Cutter, mulberry paper from stash, Making Memories Charmed Photo Corners, Making Memories Metal Flowers, Making Memories Metal Word, and Close to My Heart Milepost Shapes (retired).
First of all I have to say that I recently bought some Kraft paper because I see it everywhere and honestly…I hate it. So this was a true challenge for me! In an attempt to use up some of my kraft paper, I used it as the background of my layout. The decorative circle is cut from the Artiste cartridge (p.60 – Accent 4 – Shift – Fit to Page). I took the scraps from the inside of this circle image and flipped them around (double-sided paper) and used them to create the flower. I added another circle of mulberry paper that was buried deep in my stash. Do you remember this stuff? I even used my Creative Memories circle cutter. The shapes in the corners of the layout are layered metal pieces, 2 photo corners topped with the flower.
Now head over to Scrap Our Stash and submit your own layout. You have until March 29th.

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Passages Workshop on the Go Kit (retired), Cocoa Ribbon Collection (retired), Extreme Alphabet stamp set (retired), Brown Bag ink (retired), and Cocoa ink.
This is another one that just needed to be finished…another layout from a Workshop on the Go Kit. You may notice that I took this picture of the layout in photo protectors. This is because I used 4×6 flip flaps for extra photos that are underneath the focal point on the left page.
