Welcome to this month’s Technique Blog Hop where we are focusing on FABRIC. If you are starting here just continue until you make your way back. If you have already started, you should be coming from Stephanie Chumbley.
Supplies used: Sophia Paper Packet (retired), Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, Chantilly Textiles, Harvest Baker’s Twine, Felt Alphabet – Keepsake (retired), Sparkle Flourishes, and Bitty Sparkles.
I have to admit when Close to My Heart came out with these fabrics I really wasn’t sure what to do with them. It’s great that they coordinate with different papers but I have a feeling they will last me a very long time. For my layout I used the fabric to create the butterflies and flowers. The butterflies are roughly 2″ squares of fabric cut with pinking shears on the sides. To create the flowers I first cut a long strip (about 1/2″) of fabric. Then I twisted it so the pattern was mostly on the outside and from there I twisted it further into a circle. As I did the final twisting, I used 1″ glue dots to adhere it to my paper flower. The inside of the small flower is a strip of fabric tied in a loose knot with the ends cut off. At first, I planned to use knots with the ends but I didn’t like it so I used those (they look like little bows) in the upper corner of my layout. I used this sketch from Scrappy Sketches.
And here are some closeup pics:

Thanks for joining us this month! If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Stephanie Chumbley’s Blog.
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Sophia Paper Packet (retired), Sophia My Stickease (retired), Clear Sparkle Flourishes, Sweet Leaf Ribbon (retired), Green Glitter Glitz, and Stardust Glitter Glitz.
The Sophia Paper Pack was one of my favorites. I still had some left along with the coordinating Stickease so I decided to use them for this challenge. These are both retired but I also added in some current product. The most common things I do with My Stickease is add 3D Foam Tape to add dimension, and add more embellishing to them in some way. You could use brads, ribbon, sparkles, or my recent favorite – Glitter Glitz. On my layout, I used Sweet Leaf Ribbon (retired), Sparkle Flourishes, and Stardust Glitter Glitz. I also used Green Glitter Glitz to add some color and sparkle to the scalloped paper at the top of the page. One more secret was the placement of the Stickease “buttons”… the scallop was a scrap that I had with my papers and it was a tad bit shorter than what I need for the page. I used these button stickers to fill the gap!
