Simply Delightful Huntington Fall Layout

Simply Delightful Fall Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Huntington Paper PacketHuntington StickeaseOpaques Mocha  Adhesive Gems, and Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.
Challenge: Colorful Creations, The Theme Park – Delightful

Here is a layout I made with the  Huntington Paper Packet and Huntington Stickease.  I added the finishing touch of a decorative border with the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and I cut it in half to make it fit the space.  At our old house all we had for trees were evergreens.  At our new house there are a variety of trees and lots of leaves in the fall.  It brings joy to my heart to watch Miranda having such fun playing in them!

Scrap Our Stash Sketch #1

Sketch Challenges are something else that is new over at Scrap Our Stash.  Please come join us!  I love to use sketches!  Sometimes I follow them exactly and other times they are just more of a starting point.  Get creative, you can rotate the sketch, rotate photos, add/remove photo and journaling spots or replace one with the other.  Stash Buster: also add mixed alphabets to your layout in your title or as part of your journaling. This is our first sketch:

Here is my layout:
Capture the Memory Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: CTMH Life Delights paper (retired), DCWV Alphabet Stickers, 7 Gypsies Pink Posy Velvet Flowers, CTMH Opaques Pearl Flourishes, Hero Arts Pearls, K & Company Life’s Journey Clearly Yours Alphabet, and CTMH Dark Chocolate Striped Ribbon.

I wasn’t sure about the letters on this layout at first.  I left it and came back the next day.  Funny thing is that I liked it right away.  I dug deep in my stash for most everything on this layout.

There is still time to submit your layout at Scrap Our Stash.  You have until March 29th.

6th Grade Layout

6th Grade Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies are all CTMH unless otherwise noted: Clementine Paper Packet, Color-Ready Cork Alphabet, Burlap Ribbon, Milepost Shapes (retired), Juniper Marker, Dimensional Elements Awards, Brown Bag ink (retired), Brown Bag cardstock (retired), Basic Grey Pearls, and Prima flowers.  Challenges: Scrapbook.com – Page Maps Sketch Challenge

I used this Sketch Thursday sketch by rotating it and using one photo instead of two:

I am really happy with this layout.  Cork, burlap, and corrugated items are not what I typically use and these items are bound to end up buried in my stash.  So I am proud to have used them and I think I like it because I mixed them with other things that I do enjoy using, like flowers and pearls.  I used the new CTMH Alcohol Markers to color the cork letters.

Apple Picking Layout

Apple Picking Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: CTMH Clementine Paper Packet, CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, CTMH Almond Glitter Glitz, Making Memories paperie greenhouse stickers, and Kaiser Pearls.

One of my goals this month is to use up my Clementine Paper Packet so you will see a bit more with this paper and then I will be done!  For this layout I took two of the zip strips that were cut from the tops of the papers and put them together to make the decorative border in the center.  I used Glitter Glitz to the edges of the scalloped circles to add some sparkle to the page.  I used this sketch from Inspired Blueprints.
