Scrappin' Our Stash Monthly Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Scrappin' Our Stash Monthly Blog Hop!   A group of us get together every month and create something with our stash!  It's a great way to encourage each other to use up what we have.  You should get a group of friends together and do it, too!

Today I am sharing a page with some older Studio Calico goodies from the South of Market collection.  I bought this collection last year to use with some photos of a farm trip that we went on.  Well we went to the farm again this year, so I thought I'd use some more up!

I started by layering some large triangle shaped pieces of paper on the left and put a border sticker on the edge.   I added some vellum behind my photo to make it stand out more.

And nothing says "farm" more than a little burlap, so I raided my stash for some burlap bits.  The flower cluster is from Little Yellow Bicycle and the other burlap bits are from Simple Stories.

I finished it off with some stitching and some mist splatters.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to check out the other ladies pages and hopefully you will be inspired to break out your stash!!!!

I cut out a starbust pattern from the Authentique paper in the kit and added a few rays of some other papers as well.  Some stiching, cork arrows from the Crate Paper Journey stickers, and the exclusive Scrapbook Circle flair were thrown in, too!

I used the "Food for Thought" cut file and the "Now I Know My ABC's" file from the Cut Shoppe store and cut them out using some kraft paper.  I LOVE working with an alphabet cut file....its just awesome to be able to make the title the exact size you want!  For the "O's" in my title, I just made a circle with some smaller circles to look like cookies!

I used this circle from the "Food for Thought" file and backed it with some black cardstock to make is stand out more.  I love how this circle have a little "wedge" that you can kinda clip it onto another paper or photo.

Scrappin' Our Stash....monthly Blog Hop!

Piles and piles of stash....gotta use some UP!!!!  

Scrappin' Our Stash Monthly Blog Hop helps me dig it out and put it to use!  I haven't participated the last few months because I have been so busy, but I had been digging through some older things and have been itching to use them!  So here is my page I am sharing with you today:

I pulled out a whole bunch of 6x6 pads from my stash that I get in kit club add ons, and a some papers and embellies from Simple Stories Good Day Sunshine collection.

I found this awesome fish file in the Silhouette store, and this was NOT how I originally intended to use it, but I am happy with how it came out!  I spent the most time adding the bits of paper to the background.

Then I added some stitching to look like a fishing line and backed my photo with some distressed papers.  Some mist splatters, enamel dots, and sequins help add a splashy feel!

Thanks for stopping by on the hop today!  Here is the hop order.  be sure to check out all the blogs as some people have some giveaways!

Scrapbook Circle Anniversary Blog Hop!

This month we are celebrating Scrapbook Circle's 9th Anniversary! To celebrate, this week we are doing a blog hop around to our design team members' blogs to showcase some of the fun things we have created with the May Hello Sunshine Kit. (Kit Link:…/kits/products/may-2015-kit)

The hop starts at the Scrapbook Circle blogComment along your way while visiting our team members' blogs. Each comment will be one entry in a random drawing where we will be giving away FIVE May Hello Sunshine Kits. We hope you feel inspired today!

**Comments close at midnight PST on May 21. We will post the winners on the Scrapbook Circle blog on May 22.**

The next stop on the hop after visiting my blog is Jenni Calma's Blog.

Now let me share with you something I made with the May kit!

We recently took a trip to Florida and I had a lot of great photos that I wanted to showcase together. I really wanted to use these Pink Paislee Cirtrus Bliss Insta Frames and other 4x4 cards, but I don't scrap Project Life style.  I also wasn't feeling a mini album, but somehow I wanted to get everything on the page!

And then, the PACKAGING of the Citrus Bliss frames inspired me!  When you look at the package, you will notice that there are layered tiers of products, and I wanted to create the same effect on my page.

I had some pockets in my stash that are clear and hold 4x4 photos, and they have an adhesive strip on them to help hold them to the page.

I just added my 14 photos, the frames, and some of the cards and transparencies from the pack.  I also added in a few pieces of paper from the Amy Tan Rise and Shine 6x6 pad (cut to 4x4) for some more journaling spots.

I used some of the Crate Paper wood veneer with glitter for some accents, and the fun gold clips from Rise & Shine, too!

This was a SUPER simple and fun way to get FOURTEEN photos on one page!  

Thanks for stopping by and stay scrappy my friends!

Create your own sunshine! Weekly Scrapper at Scrapbook Expo blog!

Hello there!  I am so excited to share that I was asked to contribute as the Weekly Scrapper to the Scrapbook Expo blog this week!  I had to make a special project exclusive for the blog, and I get to finally share it with you today!  

You can check out the Scrapbook Expo blog HERE for some more details about this project, a few of my other favorite pages, and a little Q & A about me!  

So this was the first real *warmer* day of spring, and my daughter came running off the bus, whipping her coat off yelling, "It's SUMMER!  It's SUMMER!"  It was really about 50 deg. F.!  lol.  But she was full of energy, and after a long winter, the sunshine just does that to you!

Now, honestly, I DON'T dress my kids to match my scrapbook papers, but the navy shirt my daughter was wearing in these photos just went so well with the Saffron Yellow collection from Jillibean Soup!  You can see the collection HERE in the My Scraps & More store.

The first thing I wanted to do was cut out these beautiful flowers from the patterned paper.  So I fussy cut the large flowers and then popped up some smaller flowers in the middle with tiny black brads for centers.

My background is a white on white flower die cut with a floral cut file from the Silhouette store.  Once I glued the die cut down, I machine stitched inside some of the flower shapes to add some texture and interest.

I am so honored to have been asked to contribute to the Scrapbook Expo blog!  You must check it out!  There is a ton of inspiration there!

Stay scrappy my friends!
