Hi Everyone! I’m back from my annual Cuba vacation, which was perfect of course! Amazing weather and lots of fun!
Time to get busy creating again! Our challenge this week at Use Your Stuff is to create a project using 3 different patterned papers. It’s for challenges like this that I love co-ordinating paper from manufactures, and when they are double sided- even better!
As I was doing a monthly challenge on the Scrap Shotz site as well which was to use a themed paper for a non-themed project, I chose some Valentine’s Day papers from My Mind’s Eye.
I’ve had these papers for years and it was finally nice to get them open and used. I chose them for a new baby layout instead! I hope you like it and I hope you will join us on the blog and play along.
Paper: Be Loved & Love Me Do: My Minds Eye
Vellum sentiment: DCWV
Embellishments: Ribbon, sequins – Michaels, Clear Date Piece – Little Yellow Bicycle, Hearts & Brads – My Stash
I know that most scrappers will be celebrating NSD in one form or another this weekend. I know I will be. I’m off to my annual crop being sponsored by Sandy over at Scrapshotz all day Saturday with my friends and cannot wait!
We do have a challenge for you at Creative Corner Challenges this week, perhaps something to work on while you are celebrating. It’s all about the special women in our lives, on their special day…it could be a mom, stepmom, grandma, favorite aunt or that one lady in your life that was like a mom to you. We want to see your Mother’s Day projects this week.
The DT has some lovely projects for you. Here’s mine. I found the idea for this on pinterest weeks ago and really loved the simple style but enjoyed how it could be used for any type of card. I just used some scrap DP from my box , but it allowed me to bring out the vellum which is something that I hadn’t used in awhile. I stamped on it for the strip and the sentiment. I cut the flowers out with a punch and then just ran over them with a tool to make the edges curl.
I hope you enjoy it and I hope you will play along with us.
