Girl Scout Camp Layout

Supplies used: K & Company Girl Scout paper stack, K & Company Clearly Yours, All My Memories Wisdom Stickers – Stone, and K & Company Grand Adhesions.  Sketch by Becky Fleck from April 2006.

Well, I like this better than the last Girl Scout layout I did.  Maybe it’s because I used a sketch.  Then again, I think it’s just because I have this Girl Scout paper and embellishments that I want to use up and they just don’t go with my photos and I don’t want to reprint in black and white or sepia.  We’ll see how the next ones I have planned go.  I’m going to have to remember how I like the row of knotted ribbon when I decide to choose ribbon as my stash buster. 🙂

Stamp Sunday #3 – Baby Love

Today’s featured stamp is Baby Love.  I used it to create these quick and easy, yet sweet, baby cards:

Not sure if you can tell from the picture, but I used 3D foam tape to add dimension.  The line around the outside was done simply with a marker and a ruler.


January 2012 Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Cherish Layout using Topstitch

WELCOME!  I’m so glad you are joining us for our very first “Use Your Stash Blog Hop”.  This hop is made up of all Close to My Heart consultants who have banded together to use some of the many things we have just sitting around and not getting used.  This will be a monthly blog hop.  I know I am really looking forward to using up some of my older product.  I hope it will give you some fresh ideas and inspire you to do the same.  If you have already started, you should be coming from Michelle Battitori’ s Blog.  If this is your first stop, continue through until you make your way back here.

Today I am using Topstitch papers and My Stickease.

Supplies used: CTMH Topstitch Paper Packet, CTMH Colonial White Mini-Medley, CTMH Topstitch My Stickease, and CTMH Chocolate Waxy Flax.

I have been waiting to scrap these pictures.  I knew as soon as I saw them that I would use this paper.  Today was the day I dug it out and it all came together beautifully!  I really need to dig out more My Stickease because they make for some quick, easy, and great-looking pages!

Now hop on over to Judy Garner’ s Blog for more ideas on using up your stash.

If you get lost along the way you can see the entire list of hoppers on my previous post.

Pin It

Do your kids ever complain that they are bored and have nothing to do?  Well, we made this Bored Box to solve that problem.  It is filled with things that we came up with that they can do when they are bored.  They just pull one out of the box and they’ve got something to do.  We came up with a variety of things including look at scrapbooks, read a book, watch a movie, play outside, draw a picture, play piano, fix your hair, put a puzzle together, paint your nails, etc.  I have two preteen girls so this is what works for them.  You can customize it to suit your children’s ages and what they are interested in.  This is originally designed to be a bucket list box but you can really make it into whatever you want (photo box, learning tool, etc.).

Add these items to your order to create the workshop bonus project:
