Well, I completed 11 layouts, 1 card, and 2 projects (both milk cartons) during the month of March.  This gives me a total of 86 year-to-date, which is 5 short of one a day.  Not bad!  Chipboard was my March stash buster and I used 55 pieces.  This month’s stash buster is stickers.  They are not always my favorite to use but I’ve learned to work with them.  My first plan of action is to pull out a bunch of My Stickease.  I’ve got plenty sitting around and they really do make for some nice looking QUICK and EASY layouts!

Today’s layout almost finishes my Stella paper.  It’s amazing how far these packs go.  I still have enough left for a couple cards.  I mixed the Stella papers with some paper from an old retired pack called Paper Garden.  I need to do this more to use up my old paper too!  I embellished with the Stella Compliment Canvas Shapes which I will count towards my sticker total for the month.  Other supplies used: ColorRubz rubon letters (these are awesome – they are sticky so you can’t move them but they rub on super slick), and CTMH Cocoa Collection Ribbon.

E1021 Trinity Alphabet

Supplies used are all CTMH unless noted: Dotty for You Paper Packet (Available April 17-May 31, 2012), Trinity Alphabet stamp set, Sunset ink, Lagoon ink, Dimensional Elements Mixed Shapes, Dimensional Elements Banners, buttons from my stash, Stampin Up Baker’s Twine.  Sept. 2011 Page Map.

Trinity is a great alphabet because it offers three different size letters, punctuation, and numbers!  I’ve used all the sizes in my layout.  I had to use the Stampin Up baker’s twine because it was all I had in my stash but CTMH has some new Baker’s Twine and I think the colors are a bit brighter.  I’m going to have to get some now!
