Scrap Our Stash - December Stash Challenge

Hi All - I hope you had a Merry Christmas and are getting ready for the new year! We are trying to get the house back in order and doing some cleaning today..not fun but love when it is done. Anyways, I am sharing a layout I made for the December Scrap Our Stash Challenge. I unfortunately did not get it posted in time to link it but still thought I would share.

The challenge was to use a phrase from a piece of Word Art posted on the blog and use 4 photo corners. I used the phrase "We are Blessed" and used 2 pick and 2 yellow photo corners. For the rest of the layout, I used items from the Studio Calico Blue Note Scrapbook kit and Project life kit as well as the Bennett Add-on and Armstrong Add-on. The background paper is called Flashback and is from the Recorded line by Allison Kreft for Webster's Pages. (The picture is a little blurry but I just realized this and the layout is now with my mom as it was part of her Christmas gift - so it is what it is!)

The "we are" was written by me and then cut with my silhouette. To do this, I first wrote the word with a black sharpie on a white piece of paper. I scanned it in to my computer and then opened it in my silhouette software. I then traced it to give it cut lines and then had the silhouette cut it out. I used gold POW paper from American Crafts. I find this is usually faster for me than looking for the "perfect" font when I have what I want in my head.

Make sure to check out the winners of the Scrap Our Stash challenges from December which are posted on their blog today - Congrats to the winners!

Hope you have a fun New Years Eve - Thanks for stopping by!
