Welcome to this months CTMH Use Your Stash Blog Hop! This month we are focusing on all things GLITTER! If you are starting here, you will continue until you make your way back. If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Janet McCormick.
Supplies used are all CTMH: Bella Paper Packet (retired), Bella My Stickease (retired), Bronze Shimmer Trim, Bronze Glitter Glitz, Pink Glitter Glitz, and Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.
For my glitter I used some Shimmer Trim and Glitter Glitz Gels. These products are great to use with any papers and I love to add them to older ones to give them a fresh look and are among my favorites. The Shimmer Trim has an adhesive back and you can look forward to more colors in the 2014 Spring/Summer Idea Book. The Glitter Glitz Gels are retiring and will only be available until the end of January 2014 (or while supplies last). On this layout I used the Glitter Glitz Gel to create my title, outline my diecut, and accent the My Stickease stickers.
Now move on to your next stop, Shirley Ross.

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Huntington Paper Packet, Huntington Stickease, Opaques 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!

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Sarita Paper Packet, Sarita My Stickease Assortment, Color-Ready Canvas Alphabet, and Corner Rounder. I used a Scrapbook Generations sketch.
I know that the Color-Ready Canvas Alphabet is meant for adding color but I really like it in it’s raw state and it pairs so well with this paper pack and many others.

This month the Sketch with Stash Challenge #3 at Scrap Our Stash is to use this sketch using scraps only, then add a pre-made tag or journaling card AND twine or jute.
Supplies used: CTMH Paper Packet (retired), CTMH Journaling Spots (retired), CTMH Mini-Medley Accents Wooden Collection, CTMH Hemp, CTMH Color-Ready Trinkets Wooden Shapes, Two Busy Moms Crackle Alphabet Stickers, Siren Smooch, and Making Memories Notch Tool.
I was kind of surprised when I realized that the papers I picked out for this layout were Christmas but, hey, they work! I am trying to use up my alphabet stickers and never thought that I’d be looking for ones with two letter z’s. Luckily, I had these that worked (purchased 2 packages on a clearance sale). This is the first out of the package of journaling tags I’ve used….better work on this…and even though the wooden buttons are not old I decided to use them because (1) they worked with the layout and (2) if I don’t use them now I am confident that they will become a permanent part of my stash. I really wanted to add some Glitter Glitz for a bit more accenting but when I went to my drawer I changed my mind when I saw the Smooch. I used it to color and accent the Wooden Shapes! Lastly, I should note that I used my notch tool for the little indents on the sides to hold the hemp. I am tempted to say that this may be the first time that I have used it (shhh!).
There is still time to submit your layout at Scrap Our Stash. You have until June 29th.
