It's been a while since I posted, but I have an excuse! We've been in
North America for a month for a
family reunion, and I've come back feeling very crafty, so this challenge from
Scrappin' Patch to use your stash was right up my alley. I have so much in the
way of paper and embellishments that I think I could continue scrapping for
years without buying a thing!
The Challenge was to use this sketch by Annelie Maddock. I don't always use one photo sketches, but this one was perfect for the family shot from our recent family reunion. I used some cardstock and patterned paper from an old TLC kit, as well as some beige coloured mulberry (or handmade?) paper I found amongst my scraps. I had lots of fun going through my embellishment containers looking for brads, buttons and pearls too. I bought the Family cloth badge last year from one of those $2 shops, and the little lace flower came from a bag of similar lace bits that I bought at the Craft show last year.
Of course I couldn't make a layout without using my Big Shot and some dies, and used these:
Memory Box Chloe Stem (98321)
MFT Die-namics Clearly Sentimental Label
MFT Die-namics By the Numbers
Cuttlebug Baby Face alphabet (now discontinued)
and the lotus from Papertrey Ink Limitless Layers Circles (both small and large set).
I like how it turned out, and hope you do too!
Till next time, happy days!
