Here is another layout using that K & Company (I think) paper stack.  Simple with just the added Kaiser Rhinestone title and American Crafts glitter brads.

B1402 My Peeps

Supplies used are CTMH unless otherwise noted: Lucy Paper Packet, My Peeps stamp set, Sweet Leaf Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Sky/Outdoor Denim/Petal inks, Sweet Leaf/Cotton Candy/Sky/Petal/Creme Brulee Markers, and Kaiser Pearls.

I started with a sketch from Magic.  It was a fun one because of all the pictures that I was able to add.  I have a few more so I will be adding flip flaps over the bottom left photo.  This is a great stamp set for Easter.  I used all of the images.  The eggs were fun to color and added a lot of color to the layout.  This set also works great with the adhesive springs for an added playful element.  I didn’t use them on this layout but I have used them on a milk carton that I’m almost finished with and will share soon.

I am pretty sure this paper was from a K & Company stack.  I just love the bright colors and how easy it is to use for a quick and simply layout.  I just added my picture, a CTMH Sparkle Flourish, and Kaiser Rhinestones.  Done!

Watch this month’s Love Your Layout video for instructions that will show you a cleaver way to and your title and also play with the stitching tool.

This layout was created for the Use it or Lose it Challenge.  The challenge this time is Paper Piecing.  I used to do paper piecing all the time.  It’s a lot easier now that we have the Cricut but I still just haven’t used this technique much.  It is a bit time consuming but always worth it in the end.

For my layout I pieced together some stamped images as you can see in the closeup picture above.  My base was created using an image from the Life’s Creation stamp set (retired).  I stamped and cut out the image 3 times and placed them in a circle.  My next layer is a flower from the Sweet Home Workshop-On-The-Go stamp set (retired) and the top flower is from Life’s Creation.  Paper piecings look even more amazing if you add some type of embellishment to them like I did with the Opaque Pearls.

Supplies used are all CTMH unless otherwise noted: paper, Life’s Creation stamp set (retired), Sweet Home stamp set (retired), Colonial White Ribbon, Opaques Pearl Adhesive Gems, Irresistibles Eclectic Chipboard Die-Cuts Alphabet, Chocolate/Juniper/Tulip/Sunset inks, and Zig marker.

The layout was one I received in a swap at convention a couple years ago, created by Anna Peterson.  I added the title, journaling, and stamped embellishments.
