Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Veranda Paper and ribbon (retired), Vanilla Cream cardstock (retired), and Mini-Medley Accents Rosewood (available August 1, 3013) Challenge: Crazy 4 Challenges
After I finished a layout today, I saw the Crazy 4 Challenges sketch and was inspired to use up my scraps! This is a good 5-minute card! Be sure to come back tomorrow to see the layout!
Here is the card that I made to take to convention. I am thrilled that I was able to make 72 cards! I will post some of my favorites! So something kind of funny….I had this post all ready to go except for the picture. Now I sit down to finish up and I have everything packed, including all these cards…deep in the back of the van…in a box…in the bottom of the cooler… So… I happened to keep this one. The cards for convention are the same with the exception of the embellishments. I used the Black/Grey sparkles instead of the bubbles that you see here.
For some of the cards I used up the rest of my Grey Flannel Cardstock. It is a similar light grey to the new Whisper.
I didn’t realize until half way through that I could have saved some paper with this project. I cut the 12×12 sheets of grey to use as card bases. What I later discovered is that even though the Pirouette shape didn’t quite fit on the scrap I had leftover, it was enough since I was cutting part of it off the edge of the card anyway. I finished the rest of the cards this way and was able to make a few more than I would have otherwise. When I attached the stamped Pirouette image, I let it fall off the edge of the card, then I used my Cutterpede trimmer to cut off the excess. This worked perfectly because I could butt the edge of the card right up to the blade and cut it straight, much faster than trimming with scissors.
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.
