I was asked to be be Guest Designer for November at Scrap Our Stash. I recently discovered their challenge blog and I love it.
The November Stash Challenge #32 is to create a layout and to include an item from your stash for each letter in the word A-L-B-U-M-S.
I had to challenge myself to get some of the items from “ALBUMS” on the page. I really had a hard time with “U” and umbrella kept coming up. I knew I had a photo of my son with his umbrella so I thought I would design one in my Silhouette Studio. The umbrella creation prompted me to make a cloud with some rain coming down. I designed the page with a large letter “A” that is outlined with a Silhouette sketch pen and then cut out with the Cameo.
I tried to use lots of little bits and pieces I have been holding on to. Like I said, I designed all the elements in my Silhouette Studio: cloud with rain, letter “A” and the umbrella.
I included a quote and used an old stash of sticker alphas. “When life gives you a rainy day, play in the puddles.”
Here are all the challenge supplies I used on the layout:
A – letter A (for Alex)
L – lines on the paper background
B – buttons
U – umbrella
M – modeling paste (for the triangles)
S – stripes, stars, Silhouette, and stickers
