E1015 Cocktail Alphabet

Supplies used: Unknown papers, CTMH Cocktail Alphabet, La Petites 3D Stickers by Paper Studio, and CTMH Designer Ribbon Rounds Chocolate.

This is a fun, whimsical alphabet that comes in a large envelope and has both uppercase and lowercase letters as well as some punctuation.  For those of you who don’t mind cutting, I really like stamping my letters and cutting them out as I did for this layout.  I wasn’t sure how I was going to place the letters and this allowed me to move them around until I was satisfied with their placement around the circle photo.

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. 🙂

The girls and I made these cute little gift bags for teacher gifts this year.  They were quick and easy to make the girls had fun helping.  I think the paper is DCWV.  All the embellishments are just misc. from my stash that I’m working to use up.  I used the Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More Cricut cartridge.  I cut the gift bag on p. 115 at 5 3/4 (the largest it would cut).  It wouldn’t cut 2 on one sheet but you can trick it by cutting one, then reinserting the mat so the paper is switched around and cut it again.  As long as you have 6″ of paper you are good.
