Artbooking Layout Series – Springtime 2

Spring Layout by Wendy Kessler

 

Supplies used: CTMH Artbooking Cricut Collection, CTMH Cardstock (Sky, Hollyhock, Gypsy, & Buttercup), and Recollections Rhinestone Stickers.

I like how the Rhinestone stickers made everything come together for this page.  The film strip is originally made to fit four photos.  I just trimmed it at the end since I only had three.

Scrap Our Stash Sketch #3

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!!

Princess Layout by Wendy Kessler

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.

Using Up Scraps for Cards #1

One of my goals this month was to use up the Close to My Heart Sophia Paper Packet.  It was a bunch of scraps so I thought I’d make a bunch of cards.  This just proves how far scraps can go!  I made about 40 cards so I will be spreading out the pics over the next few days.  First, I put all the papers/scraps on the cards.  Then I went through my embellishments, found some that matched and added them to the cards.  I really can’t say that these are my favorites but in the end I used up a paper pack and dug into my stash for embellishments that I have had for a very long time.

Embellishments used on the cards are: Special Moments Scrapbooking Embellishments, K & Company Wedding Collection Grand Adhesions, Marcella Dimensional Flowers, O’Scrap Stick Its, Stampendous Diamond Dot Stickers, Memories Complete Sticker Patches, Autumn Leaves Pretty Poppies, This & That Tags & Things Yellow Plaid Wood, Forever in Time Sheer Dragonflies, Recollections Butterfly Embellishments, Fashion Stickers, Close to My Heart Blush Polka Dot Ribbon, and K & Company Smitten Grand Adhesions.

Stamp Sunday #29 – Chocolate Alphabet Large & Chocolate Alphabet Small

E1010 Chocolate Alphabet Large

D1296 Chocolate Alphabet Small

Supplies used: Dream Street Papers, CTMH Chocolate Alphabet Large, CTMH Chocolate Alphabet Small, CTMH Cotton Candy Ink, Recollections Glitter Shapes, and Kaisercraft Rhinestones.

As you can see on my layout, I really like using these coordinating alphabets together!  One thing you may not notice is that I also used the “*” stamp and added it among the flowers on the background paper.  I was amazed at how well it blended in as part of the pattern!
