Happy 2nd Anniversary, PWP!

I cannot believe that it's been two years since I started posting the Pages With Papertrey Challenges! I've really enjoyed posting these & am super appreciative to everyone who's participated in them!

This month's challenge is no cardstock. That's right, you can't use any cardstock on your layout.

For my layout, I combined this month's challenge with the Crate Paper August Creative Weekly...


I used an assortment of Crate Paper patterned paper for my layout, as well as quite a few Papertrey Ink dies.


I used my PTI Headline Alphabet dies to create my title.

For my button card, I'd found a Crate journaling card in my stash from the Random collection (the one on the top left hand corner of this sheet):


However, the navy blue on that card didn't match the navy blue polka dotted paper I was using, so I cut out the "button snaps" part and adhered it to another piece of Crate Paper patterned paper and rounded the corners. Then I die cut the pattern from the back with my PTI LL:squares pinked die. I diecut the plain square from the journaling card. I was pretty pleased with how this worked out. I used two PTI Notched Circle dies to create my flower-- using the fabric from the aprons. A PTI button and twine finishes it off.


For my journaling, I made a pocket tag using my PTI Tag Sale #7 die and some patterned paper. The Lovely Bias Trim card was from the Pretty Party Collection.


And here's my journaling, which I typed on my typewriter:


If you want to play along with this month's PWP challenge, please link up your layout either here in the comments or here on the PTI forum.

Thanks for looking!
