Monster Valentines Box

Today I created this layout of my son and his Valentines box from a couple of years ago.  Although it's a Valentines layout I really wanted to use this old monster (or possibly alien) collection.  The collection is "Orbit" by Crate Paper.  I thought the little monsters (aliens) worked great with his monster box.

Rock on!

I couldn't resist playing along with Paper Issues Scraplift Sunday challenge.  The original layout is so fun and amazing and I just had to play along.  Here is my take.

Paws-itively Adorable

This month I am playing along with Paper Issues November "Keep It Sketchy" challenge.  I used an old collection I had in my stash...BoBunny "Pet Shop".

Here is my layout.

And here is the sketch I followed.

3. 2. 1. Teleport

Last month I dug out these photos and this paper collection for a challenge but I wasn't able to create a layout in time.  The challenge was to use a themed collection for something other than that theme.  I decided to go ahead and make the layout anyway.  I used PhotoPlay's Party Animal-Cake collection.  It's a birthday themed collection and I used it for a vacation layout.

I decided to play along with the Paper Issues Keep It Sketchy challenge.  I used the Dear Lizzy Star Gazer collection for this layout.  And even though it wasn't part of what I pulled, I did use some chipboard on this layout.  I also used the punch I pulled as part of my 15 items.  Here is my layout.

July Stash Busting

Over on the Rediscover Your Stash Facebook group we were asked to dig out our chipboard and try to use it this month.  Here is my chipboard.
We were also challenged to put together a basket of 15 things to keep on our desk that we want to use this month.  I decided to make the chipboard one of my 15 items.  Here are the other 14 things I chose.

Here it is all together in my box.  I decided to make a list of all the items so I could mark them off once I used them.  That way I can hopefully use everything at least once this month.  I also chose 5 of the items to try to use up completely this month.  Check back later to see how I do.

The Great Outdoors

I was invited to the RYS Spending Freeze Facebook event hosted by Sara Scraps and Khristina Sorge.  I really needed this event.  Lately I've spent so much time shopping and buying and checking over and organizing and putting away......that it hasn't left me any time to actually use the products.  This event has been a great reminder to put the breaks on all that spending and use up some of what I already have instead of just hoarding it.  Because we all know just how fast scrapbooking supplies can pile up and get out of hand.

Challenge #1 is a sketch challenge.  For this layout I used a collection from 2016 by Echo Park called Happy Camper.

Here is my layout
