Mom Layouts

Last week, I got some Halloween paper at Hobby Lobby because I don't have Halloween paper. I created this page of my mom and her friends when she was little.
I used the sketch from Crafty Steals (it can be found here). Also,  I used a recipe challenge from a friend on Club CK.

  • Two or three photos of any kind of celebration, could be birthday, Christmas, anniversary, retirement, valentines, fun day at school, any celebration
  • Twine, string or floss
  • Stitching (machine,hand, rub-on, or faux)
  • At least one button or brad
  • Pen or marker

Supplies: cardstock (American Crafts and The Paper Studio), pattern paper (The Paper Studio and Basic Grey), washi tape (Target and Queen & Co.), twine (Timeless Twine), mists (Heidi Swapp) stickers (K & Co. and Glitz Design), electronic die cutter, software and cartridge - Opposites Attract (Cricut), embossing machine and folder (Sizzix), brads (My Mind;s Eye) grommet (We R Memory Keepers) ink (Color Box and Stampabilities), marker( Bic) and pom-pom trim
I am in love with stitching with twine and these simple arrows. 
I add the dots to the word "BAND".I cut "Spooks)out with my Cricut, embossed it, ink it. I love the wiggle eyes in the O's. 
 This last page is of my mom's birthday. I used the About A Girl mini challenge sketch.
Supplies: cardstock (The Paper Studio), pattern paper (Carta Bella, Fancy Pants and Pink Paislee), mist (Heidi Swapp), washi tape (Studio 112, Studio G, October Afternoon, Queen & Co., and Target) chipboard (Crate Paper), border punches (EK Success) stamp (7 Gypsies), ink (Stampabilities), sticker (The Paper Studio) and pom-pom trim
