Scrap Our Stash is up with their monthly sketch + stash challenge. This month's stash challenge is to dig deep and use something old...the older the better. At least 75% of your layout should be created using your oldest product.
Here is the sketch we were given:
And here is what I created:
***Colorbok Perfect Pages kit: OUTDOORS collection***
This is a kit I purchased several years ago at a local chain store called Craft Warehouse. I have several similar kits but this happens to be the one I have used the most. I think it's the colors...which, by the way, are just PERFECT for these photos, don't you think? I could not have found better...at least not in my stash!
I stayed pretty true to the sketch. However, I have found that I am not real comfortable with the triangle trend which is why I chose to eliminate two of them. I instead substituted a couple of paper strips to provide that same anchoring effect that the triangles did in the original sketch. I used a couple of photo corners for the chevrons on the left side of the sketch. Pretty clever, huh? I thought so! Besides the papers, the buttons have been in my stash forever. And even the remaining items are all at least two years old. I tried really hard to stay away from anything that was a recent purchase.
Now it's your turn! Come on over to Scrap Our Stash and join in the fun!
