Scrap Our Stash has been a wonderful find for me. I enjoy their sketch and stash challenges. Using up stash is, after all, of extreme importance. One must make room for all of the wonderful new things that are always coming out in the scrapbook world. And there are so many wonderful ways to use up all of that stuff. While you are here, I hope you browse around a little. I am new to blogging but not to scrapbooking. I have a few projects posted that I hope you will enjoy.
Since this is a holiday themed hop, I decided to scrap these photos of my two cats snoozing around our tree. I used some stickles in fruit punch and diamond as well as some smooch ink in azure to add some bling to Fancy Pants botanical die cuts.I also added a little fruit punch stickles to a My Mind's Eye acetate frame. No, they are not traditional Christmas embellies. However, they made me think of angels and the warm cozy feelings of nights by a tree. I carried the polka dot theme through in the rounded dots of the MM red cheeky trim and the dots on the red and green papers. I cut the title on my cricut using the CK beantree font and I used SCAL to cut the border. To add a little to the non-traditional colors, I used some pink( I swear it is.The picture just doesn't do it justice) DMC floss to stitch some flourishes. I am starting to think that Scrapping your holiday photos in the summer is a good thing. it really makes you think outside of the box as far as supplies and colors to use.
