Scrap Our Stash Debut

Hello and Welcome!!

Thank you for stopping by for my first posting as a Design Team member for Scrap Our Stash. I am so excited. Scrap Our Stash is a wonderful site that helps us "collectors" get our products out of storage and into albums with daily inspiration and fun challenges. You can even win prizes.

Check out Scrap Our Stash's new challenge for the New Year:

January 2017 Tic Tac Toe Stash Challenge

I used the first column: paint, 5+ pattern papers & twine plus the first row: paint, die cut & Simple Stories.

Since this is my first Design Team layout, I thought I'd combine my two passions - scrapbooking and Jazzercise - with a fun New Years twist:

Wanting to use up my scraps of beautiful Bobuny Believe paper, I went a little crazy with a 1" circle punch and created the side borders and stitched them down. (This is a great technique to use those favorite scraps you just can't throw away, without overwhelming your pictures.)

Then with a Heidi Swapp star stencil and gold paint a little shimmer was added at the top of the page. The photos were attached with 2 horizontal strips to ground them.

The title is a combination of Thickers and letters from a Lifestyle die cut. To finish off this page I added a few stickers by Simple Stories, Wild Daisy flower die cuts by Simon Says Stamps, gems and a twine bow. (For fun, can you find the Bobunny tear strip on this layout?)
Thank you so very much for sharing this big day with me!
