A few projects...

First up, Papertrey Ink's anniversary challenge for today is to find some inspiration on Pinterest and use that to create some packaging or a tag.

I found this photo:


And, using it as inspiration, I created this tag, using my PTI tag sale #5 die and In the Meadow and Falling Leaves stamp sets:


Next up is a layout that I made for the online crop that my LSS, Love is in the Details, where the challenge was to scrapbook my BFF.

I used some Crate Paper patterned paper and chipboard accent to scrapbook the photos that I'd printed of my friend, Val and I at our weekend at the Women of Faith conference this past fall.


I used my PTI tag sale #5 die, along with my upper and lowercase block alpha bet dies to create my title, using this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: the Diecut Double Up.


 I used PTI Year of Flowers: Roses stamps with Crate Paper patterned paper for yesterday's anniverary challenge at Papertrey Ink, which was to use a Year of Flowers stamp on a card. The brads I added are Echo Park.


And my journaling pulls out at the bottom (I used my PTI Half & Half die on this.)


So, when I showed Sage the layout I'd made for the BFF challenge, she was affronted that I hadn't chosen to do a layout about her and me. So, I made this layout:


Again, I used some Crate Paper goodies. I was inspired by Danielle's patterned paper pocket that she shared for her favourites for the Day One challenge at Papertrey Ink (bottom of the first column).



Again, I used this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: the Diecut Double Up on the front of my pocket, using PTI LL:oval dies and the block alphabet dies.


 I love how Danielle often writes her journaling on patterned paper, so I decided to do the same:


And lastly, I created a card for the Love is in the Details online crop challenge to combine alphabet fonts on a card. So I used this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: the Diecut Double Up (again!), to diecut some PTI modern uppercase alphabet dies, along with a PTI mat stack #4 diecut. I also used some new Bo Bunny patterned paper, a Pink Paislee chipboard heart and an AC brad.


The alphabet chipboard stickers are My Mind's Eye that I inked with some PTI hibiscus burst ink to darken them a little.

Thanks for looking!

Again, such great work. Love how you make layouts often. Journalling on patterned paper is a great touch (like stamping on patterned paper).
