Scrap Our Stash is a site/group that inspires you to use your stash and supplies. They do 2 challenges a month - one is a stash challenge (1st of the month) and one is a sketch challenge with a stash prompt (15th of the month). The Design Team examples are shown everyday to inspire you to put together a great page! To learn more you'll have to check out their site at http://scrapourstash.blogspot.com/
I am here today with the first challenge in the month of April. Our stash challenge this month is based off of this book cover and including 2 or more clouds!! I just had the perfect cut file of a cloud that I haven't used yet so I was so excited to include it in this page. I also loved the way the clouds were layered on the book cover so I decided to do some layering of the clouds on my page as well!
I finally figured out what picture I wanted to use - one of me and my sweet sister from my high school graduation. Oh, to be that skinny again ;) Anyways- but I absolutely love this picture of us. For the page, I decided to use the Hello Love line by Crate Paper. I just love this line! I cut apart pieces of it and backed the cloud then traced the shapes of the cloud onto other papers.
I added bundles of thread behind pieces of the embellishments- I just love this technique that I've learnt from the fabulous Missy Whidden. I also included some gray watercolor around the clouds and splattered bits of it around the whole page.
I have been hoarding this collection- like all the ... stuff I have. Haha! But I thought it was so adorable -I just haven't had any love or valentines pictures to use. I just loved the colors and it would be perfect for the white/pastels that me and my sister are wearing. Also, it dawned on me that there just isn't any love like a sister love. My sister is absolutely the best, I don't even know how to explain how much she means to me. She just gets me in a way that no one else does. She's been my biggest supporter but isn't afraid to tell me how it is. Shes the best example of someone going after their dreams and having it all. I couldn't imagine my world without her in it.
How perfect for this layout to fall on National Sibling Day.
I can't wait to see what you all create inspired by the Scrap Our Stash Challenge and my Sister Love layout. Also stick around- the middle of the month- we have a fabulous sketch waiting for you to give a hand at!
