Scrappin' Our Stash....monthly Blog Hop!

Piles and piles of stash....gotta use some UP!!!!  

Scrappin' Our Stash Monthly Blog Hop helps me dig it out and put it to use!  I haven't participated the last few months because I have been so busy, but I had been digging through some older things and have been itching to use them!  So here is my page I am sharing with you today:

I pulled out a whole bunch of 6x6 pads from my stash that I get in kit club add ons, and a some papers and embellies from Simple Stories Good Day Sunshine collection.

I found this awesome fish file in the Silhouette store, and this was NOT how I originally intended to use it, but I am happy with how it came out!  I spent the most time adding the bits of paper to the background.

Then I added some stitching to look like a fishing line and backed my photo with some distressed papers.  Some mist splatters, enamel dots, and sequins help add a splashy feel!

Thanks for stopping by on the hop today!  Here is the hop order.  be sure to check out all the blogs as some people have some giveaways!

Scrapbook Circle Anniversary Blog Hop!

This month we are celebrating Scrapbook Circle's 9th Anniversary! To celebrate, this week we are doing a blog hop around to our design team members' blogs to showcase some of the fun things we have created with the May Hello Sunshine Kit. (Kit Link:…/kits/products/may-2015-kit)

The hop starts at the Scrapbook Circle blogComment along your way while visiting our team members' blogs. Each comment will be one entry in a random drawing where we will be giving away FIVE May Hello Sunshine Kits. We hope you feel inspired today!

**Comments close at midnight PST on May 21. We will post the winners on the Scrapbook Circle blog on May 22.**

The next stop on the hop after visiting my blog is Jenni Calma's Blog.

Now let me share with you something I made with the May kit!

We recently took a trip to Florida and I had a lot of great photos that I wanted to showcase together. I really wanted to use these Pink Paislee Cirtrus Bliss Insta Frames and other 4x4 cards, but I don't scrap Project Life style.  I also wasn't feeling a mini album, but somehow I wanted to get everything on the page!

And then, the PACKAGING of the Citrus Bliss frames inspired me!  When you look at the package, you will notice that there are layered tiers of products, and I wanted to create the same effect on my page.

I had some pockets in my stash that are clear and hold 4x4 photos, and they have an adhesive strip on them to help hold them to the page.

I just added my 14 photos, the frames, and some of the cards and transparencies from the pack.  I also added in a few pieces of paper from the Amy Tan Rise and Shine 6x6 pad (cut to 4x4) for some more journaling spots.

I used some of the Crate Paper wood veneer with glitter for some accents, and the fun gold clips from Rise & Shine, too!

This was a SUPER simple and fun way to get FOURTEEN photos on one page!  

Thanks for stopping by and stay scrappy my friends!
