The Scrappiest Sketch Challenge

Late as usual, I've just finished a layout using the sketch from The Scrappiest challenge blog.

Karen sent me some photos this week of her at work in the HD Studio at University, so I've based this page around a couple of them. I've used Prima flowers, scraps of card, and  punches to make embellishments. Also, I got out a variety of stamps I haven't used for ages and stamped on vellum tags and the offcuts of card. I think it's a good exercise to revisit old stash, otherwise I forget what I have... and dare I say it in present company...... it's a waste of money not to use what I already have rather than buy more. There! I said it!

Finally, I doodled around the edges of the page. Funny how I'm starting to add doodling to many craft projects these days. It's another layout out of my comfort zone, but I enjoyed the challenge.
Speaking of using old stash in new ways (as I'm sure you've not forgotten I was just doing) I've spotted a new class on Shimelle's Blog that might be worth a look as it aims to help everyone do just that!


  1. I've just signed up for Shimelle's new class, as I have far too much stash not seeing the light of day!

  2. I'm signed up too! That is a great sketch, I might have to have a go with it! And I love what you've done.

  3. That is a gorgeous LO and I love the title.

  4. Ann thanks for your kind comment on my blog. I'm flattered to know you've been following me this month. It has definitely been a journey.
    Your blog looks great, and that mother's day card was just amazing!

  5. Great Lo Ann, love the doodling, and I think every LO that uses older stash is more satisfying, somehow!
