Puzzled Layout by Wendy Kessler

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.

April 2012 Technique Blog Hop – Layering a Window Card

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month we are highlighting the Layering a Window Card Technique as shown on page 33 in the Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book!  What you do is create a pattern to adhere to your card so it shows through the window of your card.

This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.  So if you are starting here, just continue until you make your way back.  If you have already started, you should be coming from Lisa’s Blog.  If you get lost along the way, go to my previous post for a list of all participants.


Supplies used: CTMH Daydream papers (retired), Two Busy Moms paper, Recollections Glitter Adhesive Borders, Me & My Big Ideas Pink Princess Word, and Darice Finishing Accents, and CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  Dec. 20120 Page Map.

I really dug in my stash for this layout.  I was amazed at how hard it was for my to find purple!  For my variation of this technique, I first cut my window card (1st row, third button over).  Then I cut it at an angle to create photo corners and backed it with the purple paper.  Last, I added rhinestones to the flower centers.

We would love to see what you’ve created using this month’s technique, please visit Technically Terrific where you can share your project and be entered in a chance to win great prizes.
