Scrap Our Stash June Sketch Challenge

Not only does Scrap Our Stash Challenges have a great sketch for you to try this month, but there's the additional challenge of incorporating a premade tag or journaling card AND jute or twine on your layout!
I decided to use this sketch for the title page for my 2013 family album.  (Each month I make a "highlights" layout.)  I choose three pictures that represent the first half of this year, and then when I printed them, I decided that the For Always paper pack was a great match.
Since I had to use a premade tag, as I dug through my stash, I found a box of old bank ledger paper from my late father-in-law.  It is perfect on the layout!  (I love how patterned paper shows through.)  The little rolodex card is also from my stash from a pack that I found for only $0.50.  I used Whisper, Slate, and Ruby inks with the Family Love, A Journey, and Approved stamp sets.  The cool glitter numbers are from the Glamour glitter alphabet set, and they tie in well with the (retired) glitter brads.  Finally, I couldn't find my gray baker's twine, but the black hemp is close enough to jute or twine (I hope!).  It's all about scrapping your stash, right?

I am sad to share that this will be my final post as a member of the SOS Design Team. (Notice that I didn't say that this is my final SOS post; I will still be playing along for fun as time allows!)  Life is just so overwhelming right now with our home remodel that I needed to clear off my busy plate a bit.  It has been a pleasure working with the entire SOS DT, and I know that the new group will continue to inspire and challenge us all!  Be sure to visit the SOS blog often!


  1. Love that page. The lined paper and Rolodex tag look great! I have enjoyed your SOS projects but understand your busy-ness right now. Have fun at convention!


Thanks for taking the time to visit and leaving me a comment!
