November All Scraps Use Your Stash

If you are joining us for the "Use Your Stash Blog Hop" you are right on track. WELCOME! You should be coming from Debi Barber's Blog.

There are 5 participants this month. If you get lost along the way you can see the entire list of hoppers below.
  1. Debi Barber - http://debiistheothersister.blogspot.com
  2. Rachel Ventura - www.happyscrappinsquad.com
  3. Joy McHargue http://studiowowjoy.com
  4. Wendy Kessler - http://MyScrapbookingBlog.com
  5. Judy Faye Garner www.judyfaye.blogspot.com
Let's get started. This month we are featuring "ALL SCRAPS". I created a coupon of projects.

 These first two cards are created using scraps of Bella.
 These next two cards are done using scraps of Caboodle
 These two are created from left over cardstock

I also want to share this last card. I did not make it, but received it in a swap a few years back. Sadly I do not remember who mad it. I love it because it is a great way to use up those strips of paper!

Now hop on over to Joy McHargue's Blog for more great artwork!

Technique Blog Hop - Home Decor

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop! This month there are 6 of us highlighting the Home Decor Technique as shown on pages 10, 14, 16, 23, 36, 48, 60, 86,110, and 118 of the Fall/Winter 2012 Idea Book! This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique. 

If you are coming from Joy's Blog, you are on the right track! Here I have created a wall hanging with the Dakota Paper Pack and our new Bracket Frame. I created the flowers with the cricut and with the Satin Polka Dot Ribbon. I used some Sparkle Flourishes and cricut cut shapes as well as the pearls from the Wrangler Assortment.

Thanks for stopping by! Please continue onto Wendy's Blog where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique! Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation and happy hopping! 

Here are some other Home Decor Kits and ideas from the Idea Book that CTMH offers:
