Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog--Use Any Kind of Chipboard

Hello Friends!

Welcome to this weeks challenge, the title says it all...Use any kind of chipboard on a card or scrapbook layout or other crafty item of your choice. For this weeks challenge I used a chipboard alpha and a chipboard frame.

The photos are from my family reunion on July 4th 2015.

I mixed an older basic grey alpha with the gold glitter chipboard alpha.

The frame is also chipboard and has silver glitter, it was originally plain chipboard and I used ink to color it pink.

Thanks for visiting my blog today, I hope you will head over to the UYS challenge blog and play along this week.

Have a blessed day!!!

Use Your Stuff Challenge-- Mix of Stamps

Hello Friends!

Welcome to this weeks challenge, the title says it all...Use a mix of stamps to use on a card or scrapbook layout or other crafty item of your choice. For this weeks challenge I used 4 different stamps on my layout, 2 different birds and a phrase along with a heart

The photos are from my family reunion on July 4th 2015.

I was able to add the bird stamp on a scrap piece of paper and added t to this corner in place of another photo.

You can see a different bird stamp beside the title that I stamped directly onto the background paper.

Journal strips were from scrap paper.

Here's the close up of the title, I added a little extra bling to the stamped image.

Here's the other 2 stamps, the phrase and the hearts.

Did you se all the little foam arrows on the layout along with the wood veneer arrows...I love them all!

Use Your Stuff Challenge--Make Your Own Embellsihment


Welcome to this weeks challenge, the title says it all...Make Your Own Embellishment to use on a card or scrapbook layout or other crafty item of your choice. For this weeks challenge I created leaf embellishments for my layout. I used a leaf stamp on green pattern paper and then fussy cut it out, there are 3 on this layout in each embellishment cluster.

The photos were taken during the summer of 2015 at my Mom's house.

I stamped the title and also stamped the leaves on green pattern paper and fussy cut them out.

I splattered some color shine, in Chartreus, but it wasn't mixed well and got little green rimmed gold splatters.

Love how the title stamped out.

Love that bling.

Here are my journaling strips, cut out of scrap pattern paper.

Hello Friends!!

Today I am sharing a layout I created using my March 2016 Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit or my Scrap Stash kit.

The photos are of my Uncle David and his daughters Melody and Lidia; my mother Anne and my sister Angie and myself; and my Uncle and aunt Ronn and Frances with their daughters Leigh and Heather.

I cut a border strip sticker to go behind the photos.

I layered a very large acetate piece behind the journal page.

I layered some stickers at the bottome.

I even cut up a bit of scrap acetate and put on the other side of the photos with some stickers.

May 2016 Scrap Stash Kit

Hi Friends!

Today I'm sharing a kit that I created for May 2016 using the inspiration over at the Scrap Stash FB group.

I know I'm a little late to the party but I had taken the photos and I really wanted to share this beautiful kit. I hope it inspired some of you to create your own kit.
Here is the kit in all it's glory!! I know it's huge, not as large as some of mine tend to be but it's pretty bit.

Here are all the pattern papers and cardstock.

Lots of embellishments...

And more embellishments...

And more embellishments...

The papers are a combination of papers from CTMH.

Here is the embellishment pack that came in original pack, it includes vellum stickers and metal flowers, yes there are 2 packages of flowers.

Some additional papers from the CTMH Dotty for You collection.

This is the original paper pack called Brushed from CTMH, I had the card kit and the scrapbook kit and I had only used them to make one layout prior to pulling this kit together.

Lot's of Freckled Fawn embellishments.

Scraps from my scrap bin.

Washi tape from Recollections, Stampin up and CTMH.

Wood veneer from Maggie Holmes and Target Dollar Spot.

Bling from paper studio, CTMH, MME, and Want to Scrap, the epoxy pieces are old bits from forever ago and I don't remember where they came from

Letter stickers from basic grey and recollections.

Maggie Holmes bows.

Heidi Swapp color shine in chartreus.

The stamp with Oh So on it was actually part of the original paper kit that I bought from CTMH. the other stamps are also from CTMH.

That's it, thanks for visiting my blog today and I hope I inspired you to create a kit of your own from your Stash.

Radio Love

Hello Friends!!

Today I am sharing a layout I crated with my March 2016 Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit or my Scrap Stash kit.

The photos are of the radio with each of my son's name light up.

I added an epoxy owl to the hidden journal tag, of course it was so textured that the journal card would not fit in the pocket so I eventually took the owl tag off and just added a flat embellishment to the tag.

I added several scraps to make the banners and cut up some more of the hexagon cut aparts to add to the side of background paper.

I added another tag and some other paper embellishments.
