Hello again, and welcome to the last week of October, and the last in October’s Scraps & Stash Saturday series. Today I have three new layouts to share, and a peek at what my kit looks like now after creating with it all month long.
The first layout for this week was created using mostly scraps – which I love! I had tons of little 1/2″ to 1″ strips all a couple inches wide, and I really wanted to find a way to use them on a project rather than rake them into the trash can. So, I lined them all up along the left edge of the page, and an idea was born. Larger pieces of gray polka dot and chevron added some grounding elements, and the red photo mat added a much needed pop of color. The layout was finished with chipboard stickers, a label sticker, a brad, and a flair badge. It’s probably my favorite page of the month.
The next layout, “First Paycheck,” is also made up with a lot of scraps. I had some of the coral and pink patterned papers left over as strips, as well as the gray text piece and a small bit of the gray chevron. I layered these together forming an L on the page, then anchored the photos in the corner of the L. Embellishments include cork stickers, chipboard stickers, a flair badge, and an epoxy brad.
And the final layout created using my Mr. Fox kit is this one, titled “The Big Easy.” Again, this one is cobbled together with left over bits and pieces. I placed a few strips of patterned paper across the bottom third of the page, and a couple of complementary pieces in the upper left corner. The photos were added, and then pieces of patterned paper tucked behind them. A cork sticker, label sticker, wood veneers, flair badge, and epoxy brad are the finishing bits on this layout.
And here’s what’s left after all that. There are a total of five sheets of solid cardstock, two full sheets and a half sheet of patterned paper, lots of chipboard stickers and cork stickers, lots of wood veneers, and a few brads and badges left over. All of these supplies will go right back into my stash to be included in future kits and projects.
So that’s a wrap for October. If you’d like to see all the layouts for this month, be sure to start at the beginning and work your way forward. Links are below. You can watch on YouTube as well. Till next time – cheers!
