Creative Scrappers Birthday Bash

Hey everyone. Here's a layout created for Creative Scrappers Birthday Bash. I used pattern paper and letters from Basic Grey's 'Carte Postale' collection. Using stencils from The Crafters Workshop, I first applied modeling paste and then brushed on some distress ink. I dabbed the ink pad on my craft mat, spritzed water on it and using a brush applied the ink for a water color look. I folded some little triangles, attached some sequins and finished it off with some stitching.

Sketchabilities #115

 Hey everyone. Here's my take on Sketchabilities sketch #115. I used Prima's 'Stationer's Desk' paper line. I absolutely love this collection. It is sooo pretty. Using a stencil from The Crafter's Workshop, I  first inked and then applied some modeling paste. Once dry I inked the modeling paste and splattered some ink spray around the layout.

I used Spellbinder's 'Bitty Blossoms' dies to create the roses. The greenery was cut using Tim Holtz's new 'Garden Greens' die from Sizzix. A bit of stitching completed the page.

Here is the sketch from Sketchabilities. Please take a minute to check out their blog. There is a ton of inspiration found there.

Creative Scrappers # 268/ 123 Get Scrappy May 2014 Challenge #10

Hey everyone. Here's my take on sketch #268 of Creative Scrappers and the May 2014 challenge #10 from 123 Get Scrappy. I used the brads, stickers and pattern paper from Basic Grey's 'Persimmon' collection. I love the colors in this line and they don't necessarily have to be used for Halloween or Thanksgiving. The little cogs and gears are from Prima.  Below are some close ups.

Here is the challenge from 123 Get Scrappy. I used rectangle shapes, gears or cogs and blue background. 

Here is the sketch from Creative Scrappers. Make sure to check out the links to both blogs. Hope you like the layout and thanks for stopping by.     ~Michelle
