Another Pretty Paper Party piece! This one is part of my first ever "Creative Stash Dive." It's a great way of pulling out papers you have but don't manage to use and get them on pages!! I had a blast with this Creative Stash Dive and I will be doing more. But for now, the following pages (until I say otherwise) were the result of this Dive. :)
In this photo are me and the other two Musketeers- from left to right, Aroma-Miss (Karen), All-Those (Wendy), and Portly (me). Missing is the fourth Musketeer, Dartan-Lyn.
This layout was done as part of Shimelle's Pretty Paper Party. (See below for link.) I got brave and took different patterned papers (I even mixed manufacturers) to make this! Not a solid in sight!! Usually I stick to one manufacturer for my paper-matching but I added two sheets from elsewhere into the mix and used both sides of one.
Most of the patterned paper is Bloom and Grow from My Mind's Eye. The rest.... who knows???
I can't remember the font I used for this title, sorry... could be Elephants in Cherry Trees, but then again, maybe not... sorry. Something has to fall out of my brain eventually and this time it was a font. Oops.
I rarely do a DLO but there were a few pictures for this event and one was large, so... on it went. :) Again, stunning lack of embellishment. Fascinating!
More BasicGrey loveliness and my new Papermania stamps.
I don't know why but I just didn't feel like doing much on the embellishment front last month. Sometimes I do just "phone it in." I don't think every page has to be an all-out mega effort really. Just keeping it simple.
In different light, this lilac colour looks a bit like baby blue! I loved this textured square. I had a bit of tension trouble on the bottom but I think it's due to the fact that the stitches are done alternately in the back loop then front loop etc. It will compact the row and make the original chain look a bit bulky. It should be fine once it becomes part of the throw.
