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

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.

Warms the Heart Layout by Wendy Kessler

For both of these layouts I pulled out some OLD supplies!  The paper and My Stickease ares CTMH but I couldn’t tell you the name.  I used glitter brads on the first layout and silver metal brads on the second layout.  I really love using brads because they are so easy to incorporate.

Now hop on over to Joy McHargue to see what she has done with metal!

Fabric Blog Hop

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.

Picture Perfect Layout by Wendy Kessler

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:
