First I created my background by using the autofill button on my cricut and filling the whole page, then used the negative space and sewed it onto the white cardstock. I then die cut a few patterned paper hearts, scored them down the middle and sewed with black to add some contrast. My third way of using hearts was to take 5 of my die cut hearts in red, scored them down the middle and made a flower out of them. I had a lot of fun creating this layout! Thanks to Jean at MS for challenging me to use some hearts! Plus I was able to use this layout at My Scraps and More as well as Colorful Creations for a challenge there.
Also at Memorable Seasons, Wendy created a fun sketch for the first challenge this month:
And here is my take on it. I also combined it with a For The Boys Challenge at Colorful Creations to used 3 photos, numbers, an office supply(I used staples), 3 pp's, a ticket and journaling. Don't you just love the fun wood veneer chevron arrows I bought from Studio Calico?! Love them! Also at My Scraps and More there was a challenge to use an arrow.
And here's another I did. This was for a challenge at My Scraps to scraplift a layout of the person who posted before me on the post. Plus I used challenge at MS to use a template.
Thanks to my mom and sisters for a fun crop Saturday. We had tons of fun and it was great to get my mojo working again. I missed creating! Thursday I'll be back to share my take at Sketches in Thyme. Until then...have a fabulous week!
