Labor of Goodness

   This week I must have been in a scrappy mode since this is my third one that I made this week. The page I am about to share is of 2017 Labor Day. I don't think I have ever scrapped that holiday before. I used sketch #136 from Sketch~N~Scrap.

   This is my take on it. As you can see I changed it up a bit to fit my needs. 
Supplies: pattern paper (Studio Calico, Pink Paislee and Pretty Little Studio), journaling card (Becky Higgins), stickers (American Crafts and Beautiful Mess), chipboard (Crate Paper), typewriter (We R Memory Keepers) cut apart (Pretty Little Studio), wood veneer (American Crafts), trim (American Crafts) embroidery floss (We R Memory Keepers), punch board (We R Memory Keepers), stitching template (American Crafts), sewing machine and stapler. 

   Here is a closer look at the title work and some of the typewritten journaling. 

   I originally was going to type my journaling onto the page but the top frame got caught in the typewriter, which tore the frame so I used the fun pom-pom trim as a way to cover up the mess.

S & J

   Earlier this month was my parents' 37th wedding anniversary so this page is to document it. I used the Scrap Our Stash tic tac toe challenge.
    I chose the last row for my three options, dictionary paper (background), kraft (Happy Note card), and circle (the & and flair badge).
Supplies: pattern paper (Crate Paper, Pink Paislee, Fancy Pants Designs and Pretty Little Studio), journaling cards (Simple Stories), stickers (American Crafts and Fancy Pants Designs), flair badge (Studio Calico), sequins (SpiegelMom Scraps), wood veneer (Little B) stamps (EK Success), black dye ink), embroidery floss, sewing template (American Crafts), and punch (Beautiful Mess)

   Here is a little closer look at the title. I love using letters from printed papers as part of the title.
