Use It Tuesday - Anything Goes

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?

Pinspired challenge

Check out this fun pin at Pinspired challenges.

It immediately reminded me of a set of American Crafts stickers in my stash, so I made this card:

Quick post today, I just got back from a business trip. Thanks for stopping by!

Paper Girls - Thankful Projects

The new challenge at The Paper Girls Challenge Blog today is to make a Thankful Project!

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!

What kind of Thankful Project will you make?

Use It Tuesday - Stick It!

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.

I also completed Kristy B's challenge to use Polka Dots and Chevrons.
And Rochelle Spears' challenge to scrap about Family.

And finally, I'm entering the Scrap Our Stash - Stash #9 challenge to use only 6x6 patterned paper (no 12x12), plus use 6+ of one type of embellishment.

You've got until November 22nd to link up to Use It Tuesday, so get going, let's see how you use the sticky stuff in your stash.

Paper Girls - Cut it out

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:


Thanks for taking a look!
