Scraps on a Budget - Sketches in Thyme Contest

For this LO I used the Sketches in Thyme sketch.  I also used papers from Target from their dollar bin, so this LO is only about $.50 total.  Enjoy!!

Sorry this picture is so grainy, I needed to get it taken so I could submit it for the contest.

Pages for my next class

I am hosting my next scrapbook class on October 23rd, 2010.  The two layouts are below.

I used water distressing and misting for both of these layouts. I also used my new zutter distress it all tool, so much easier than using your scissors to distress.

I was playing around with my sweet layout and found I felt that it might have needed something , so I altered it with these great flowers I got from a friend at another site  I entered a challenge to make these wonderful flowers you see on the layout below.  Tutorial to make them is at this site Fringe Flowers.  They are too fun to make, enjoy!!

Little Paper Letters

On many sketches and LO I have seen I see these little cute letters.  This is my take on how they are done.

1) Materials - ink, cardstock, scissors, adhesive, chalk, and letter stamps (I prefer rubber stamps for this).

2. Stamp out the letters for the word you want.  Do not do them order, stamp vertically, this gives it more of the illusion that they are not just cut out of a line.

3. Cut out the letters, do not worry that they are not perfect, this adds to the fun of the letters.

4.  Ink all the sides, I like to use chalk for this, but ink works too.

5.I like to use my Xyron for these little letters (they are about 1 cm square when done).

 6. Place them on your LO.  They looks so cute and they are so easy.

September Birthday - also has the retro V flowers that I did a tutorial in August.
 Below are some LOs that I used this technique on.  You can also do words, or use printed or hand written letters or words for the same effect.
