Scrapping Recipe Challenge #33

This is my layout that I created for Scrapping Recipe Challenge #33 at Sketches! {by Tamara}.


The scrapping recipe for this week, that can be used on cards or layouts is:
  • Die Cut
  • Ribbon
  • Buttons

I FINALLY used some of my Cosmo Cricket Oh Joy papers, die cuts, and chipboard pieces that I won from the Cosmo Cricket site. The mittens are the buck naked chipboard, I covered them with the coordinating die cut that's included in the paper collection pack. I made my own cuffs for the mittens so that they would coordinate with my matting paper. The title is a piece of the strip tease paper matted on a threading water punched strip, and I also used a journaling card from the collection. I tied sheer ribbon around the journaling card, and I sewed on three buttons. I also used chalk ink to distress all of the paper edges. I really love the way this layout turned out! You can click on it to see it larger.

It's COLD outside! Wow! I need to run to the grocery store, do some cleaning, and then I hope to create a little. I hope you have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!
