Young at Heart layout

Hello crafty friends. Today I'm sharing another layout made with my May homemade kit. This layout was also inspired by two challenges. A sketch challenge at Stick It Down Challenge blog...


And a recipe/product challenge at Scrap Our Stash blog. 

I loved the honeycomb design on the sketch but I remembered that I had pulled a lot of washi tape and trims for my homemade kit and decided to make a layered background with them, mimicking the placement of the honeycomb in the sketch. I still used the doily and turned the sketch 90 degrees so that I can incorporate a vertical line of photos instead of one horizontal 4x6. 

For the recipe challenge we were to use products that correspond to each letter of the word "emboss". Here's what I was able to put together...

E- Echo park paper (chevron in the background)
M- Making Memories word stickers
B- Butterfly charm
O- Oval shape brad (the one with glasses)
S- Spellbinders nestabilities (I used one for the black scallop circle behind the butterfly charm)
S- Sharpie pen (for my handwritten journaling)

I participated in two pocket letter swaps last month and the tag along with the label cut outs are from one of the letters I received. I never realized how much fun putting together and receiving pocket letters could be. I just wished I had more time to participate in those. Maybe by summer time.

As I was going through my stickers, I found some Making Memories word and phrase stickers. I cannot believe I've been hoarding them all this time. I am planning to finally use em up this month.

So there you have it. Another page documented. Thank you for stopping by and I hope my page has inspired you to create something today.

Till next time,
Grace
