Challenge: Paper Cutz Challenge #106 – Wish Upon a Star 

This is my layout for the Pagerize This Challenge # 13 on Scrap Our Stash.  You’ve got until September 12 if you’d like to participate!
I started with Julie’s layout in general and went from there.  I ended up with the three pictures on the bottom and liked that but I struggled as I worked on the top of the page.  I had a crown that I kept playing with but it didn’t make the final cut.  I finally came up with the glitter stars and LOVE how they turned out!  The large star is actually multiple ones that are layered together.  I added the Glitter Glitz and it dried as one piece on the top and I was able to create the one large star that I wanted!  I’m so glad it turned out because I used almost my whole bottle!  The lamp on my desk gets quite hot so I set it under there and left it for a couple hours to dry.  That’s my best note as far as how long it took to dry.  Another option would have been to use my heat gun.  You may notice I also added small glitter dots to the background paper.
One thing I did with this layout was combined new product with my old stash to create something I like.  I remember when this paper first came out, I thought it was so cute.  Today I had a hard time making it into something I liked with the matching stickers.  By adding the border (new product) and glitter I was able to create a page that I was happy with and still use up some of my old stash.
Below is a closeup of the stars because they are so pretty!  The smaller one is just a cardstock diecut attached with 3D foam tape.

Supplies used: DCWV The Glitter Stack papers, Recollections Glitter Adhesive Borders, PC Stand-Outs, Heidi Swapp rubons, Me & My Big Ideas chipboard stickers, and misc buttons and dew drops from my stash.  I used a Sketch Inspiration Sketch.

The Monthly Challenge on Scrap Our Stash for April is “Bring in the Sun”.  I don’t know why this was so hard for me but I am very happy with the outcome.  First, I was stumped for what I was going to do.  I looked through my stash and didn’t have “sun” anything.  Then I found swim pictures and thought I would focus on the color yellow (one that doesn’t make it into many of my layouts).  Then, I added my own little mini challenge to not use pink. 🙂  In the end, I love the layout.  I think because it is so different and that will make a nice addition to my books.  Go over to Scrap Our Stash and join the challenge!
