Everything ABC’s Blog Hop (B)

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!  For this hop we will be featuring the letter B. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their B element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda’s blog ~ Scrappy Therapy.  If you came from Linda Norman – Scrappy Therapy then you’re on the right track!

Babycakes Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Babycakes Paper Packet, Babycakes My Stickease Assortment, and Chocolate Grosgrain Ribbon (retired).

For the letter B, I chose the BABYCAKES paper pack and My Stickease.  Using the coordinating paper and stickers makes a layout come together so quickly and always looks good!

Chipboard Plaques

So I found these chipboard pieces in my stash and got creative!  They were marked way down and “as is” in the clearance section.  I think they were meant for a chipboard book but I love what I did with them.  There were three holes at the top and I just covered the middle one with paper and ribbon and used the outside ones.  I used Cricut Craft Room to design these, making it super easy to size all the lettering!

Technique Blog Hop – Spray Pen

Welcome to this month’s blog hop!  This time around we are using the spray pen and hope you find lots of inspiration for this technique.  If you have already started the hop, you will be coming from Michelle.

Easter Layout by Wendy Kessler
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Unknown Paper Packet (retired), Sweet Leaf Ribbon (retired),
Colonial White Cardstock, Hollyhock CardstockCreate-a-Shade Paint, Spray Pen, Hollyhock Reinker, Cricut Artiste Collection, Just Blooms Paper Shapes – Petals (retired), and Colonial White Brads.  Sketch from Sketch Savvy.

I used the spray pen in a very simple way but it is my favorite.  I used it to spray the background paper of my layout.  This is a great way to add a touch of color and pattern without using patterned paper.  I also sprayed the Just Bloom Flowers, some lighter and some darker for variety.  For my mixture, I filled the pen with water up to the 7th line, then added reinker up to the next line, and added 4 drops of the Create-a-Shade Paint.  I always add the Create-a-Shade Paint because I like the extra little sparkle that it adds.

Hop on over and see what Sheila had created for you next!

The Santatizer at the top is just a small bottle of hand sanitizer covered with cardstock (idea from here).  The tic tac container was made from this example.  Once you get started, these are easy to make and work great as stocking stuffers and small gifts.but
