Anything Goes on Use It Tuesday today. Just remember to tell us what older items you are using up in your stash! Most of the product on my layout today was acquired in the last 6 months. But I did find some great uses for a couple of old items. That yellow "Today" flair button is 1 year old. Better yet? Those pink and white Authentique word stickers have been in my stash for 2 years! This is the first time I've used any of them on a project, and I'm so glad I did!
A couple of close ups:
Get those projects linked up! Anything Goes - Easy peasy, right?
This year I will not be spending Thanksgiving with my family, so I decided to make them some cards so they can get a little love in the mail! I was lucky to win an Artful Delight card kit last month, and I really love all of the elements that came in this kit. These cards came together quite effortlessly!
The challenge up at Use It Tuesday is to use something sticky on your project. I have a ton of 12x12 sticker sheets, so I tried to use as many stickers as I could with one sheet. The 6-month old stickers are from Carta Bella "True Friends". They coordinated really well with some Jillibean Soup papers (2 years old).
I think I managed to combine all of the Scrappy Friends' challenges into one layout:
I used this sketch by Brenda Ragsdale to enter into her November blog challenge.
It's my turn for a challenge at The Paper Girls Challenge Blog today - Cut It Out! Use a Cricut, Silhouette, die cuts or even fussy cutting on your project.
I decided on this challenge because recently I got a Cricut machine and several cartridges. I could definitely use some inspiration on how to use more cuts on my projects. I look forward to everyone's projects!
Here's my project today, I embossed a couple of white tags and then added flowers and sentiments cute with my Cricut Walk in the Garden cartridge:
I had a few things in mind when creating this layout. I wanted to use masking, misting, and stamping. When I decided to scrap this photo, I wanted to incorporate a rainbow feel, without just painting a rainbow on the page. I'm really happy with how it turned out!
I cut a mask with my Cricut - a square with a grid of circles
on it. I misted with 'Sunset' Mister
Huey's, moved the mask over 2 more times, misting with 'Clover' and
'Bonny Blue'. These colors coordinated really well with my Carta Bella 'Alphabet Junction' paper and stickers. I also did some stamping in black ink, and then used Heidi Swapp Color Magic letters as part of my title, sprayed with 'Sunset'. A few sequins finish off the page.
Thanks so much for taking a look at my layout today!
