First H2H Scrapbooking Challenge

For some time now I have been participating in the Heart 2 Heart challenges. As the blog continues with their weekly challenges it has added a second blog for scrapbooking challenges. I am very excited about it and hope to join in as often as possible.

Here is the first challenge, a sketch challenge. To see the original sketch and details on the new blog click here.

I decided to take the sketch this week and turn it upside~down!!






Supplies:
Sweetheart Level 2 papers
Pink collection Designer Ribbons
Black corduroy brads from Mini-Medley collection
Black ribbon from Mini-Medley collection
Hodge Podge Alphabet
Love Story rub-ons
Oxford Color Ready Alphabet
~
Coloring and stamping on the color ready alphabet is a cool technique and super easy. The letters can be colored directly on the sheet, but if you want to stamp on them then here's the trick. Use the left over sheet from your Stickease or the waxy sheet used to separate the sheets of rub-on letters like I did here. You'll then space out the letters you need and stamp them. Here I used a tiny dot pattern from a background stamp. After stamping you'll simply peel the letter from the sheet and place it on your project.


The result~

Gorgeous layout Amy!! I was kind of wondering when I first saw the sketch upside down, but it looks fabulous!! This is one of my favs from the new catty, and I'm not usually a pink girl (: I love how you did your title and the flowers and border are beautiful.

Karen, The flowers are made from the new Pink collection ribbon in the Spring Idea Book. I simply cut out portions of them and glued them into a neat spiral.

Fabulous layout Amy! I love that you flipped the sketch and the stiched strips are perfect on these pages (as are the flowers, the title....I love it all!)
