Everything ABC’s Blog Hop (U)

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!  For this hop we will be featuring the letter U. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their U element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda Norman – Scrappy Therapy.  If you came from Lauren Moore – CTMH Craftings then you’re on the right track!

Flower Layout by Wendy KesslerSupplies are all by Close to My Heart: Elemental Paper Packet (retired), Unity Stamp set (retired), Sorbet ink, Cardstock (Pacifica, Colonial White, and Sorbet), Sparkle Flourishes, and Cricut Collections.  MLSB Sketch

For the letter U, I have chose the Unity stamp set and some Unused/Useless paper.  How often do you cut a large diecut and throw the “scrap” from the outside away?  I used that scrap as the base for this layout!  I’m not sure if it was Art Philosophy (most likely) or Artbooking that I used.  I added the stamped flowers in the scallops to unify it with the page.  The flowers are Cricut-cut and popped up for dimension.  The center of the flowers are stamped and fussy-cut.  I also added a bit of doodling around the sorbet flowers for some extra detail.
