Scrapping Recipe Challenge #19

First off, before I get to my scrapping recipe challenge for this week, I want to announce that I am on the ScrapCity Creative Team! Yahoo! I love that site, and I'm thrilled and honored to be a part of their design team. I can't wait to get started!! Stop by and hang out if you get a chance. You will love the challenges each month, and it's just such a friendly message board!

Next, here is my page for Scrapping Recipe Challenge #19 at Sketches! {by Tamara}.


The challenge this month was set by ME, and here are the three recipe ingredients that needed to be used on our cards or layouts:
  1. Felt
  2. Stickles
  3. An office supply or a library pocket

I had a lot of fun with this challenge. I finally scrapbooked the photos of the girls from Christmas 2005 when they got Mall Madness from their aunt, my sister-in-law, Kathy. She was so excited to buy this game for the girls, because it was the HOT toy for young girls in 2005!! The girls LOVED it, and they still love it three years later!! I cut my title on my Cricut using Cuttin' Up. I designed the page background to look like the game box. I added Stickles to the title letters and to an awesome felt border at the bottom. I bought that purple felt ribbon at a garage sale for 25 cents! It's thick and just awesome! I used my threading water punch on my DCWV patterned paper, I journaled on an American Crafts journaling sticker, and I added a paper clip with a bit of ribbon to one of the photos. On the other photo, I added a binder clip that says "Christmas". I also added two Primas topped by a felt flower that I cut in my Cuttlebug with a QuicKutz die. The flower stack is attached with a beautiful Making Memories brad. I love the way this layout turned out!! You can click on the layout to see it larger.

Be sure to check out what the other design team members created using my recipe! I hope you have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!!
