Use My Stash - Layout 1: Allison Kreft Composition & Color

Last Wednesday, I shared my plan for 2014 to use my stash. Basically, I have quite a few (to say the least!) paper lines and kits that I have used some of put still have a lot left of. This year, I wanted to challenge myself to make at least one layout a week from these "older" lines. (Most of my stash is from the last year and a half so that is why I put older in parenthesis :) ).

I plan to share these layouts on Wednesdays so here is my first one. I used the Composition and Color line by Allison Kreft for Webster's Pages. I bought approximately 8 pieces of the 12 x 12 paper of this line, as well as the 6 x 6 paper pad and the mini folders and card set. On my layout, I used one of the 12 x 12 sheets as the background, a few of the 6 x 6 paper sheets and one of the mini folders.

Since I did not buy any embellishments from this line, I ended up using some from the Dear Lizzy 5th and Frolic line - the chipboard and a diecut. I also used some pink Thickers I got at a discount at TJ Maxx or Tuesday Morning. These thickers are one of my favorite fonts - Lullaby.

I really wanted a "R" accent so I cut the "R" with my Silhouette Cameo (affiliate link:Silhouette Cameo Electronic Cutting Tool). I used the Century Font. I also "offset" the shape in the Silhouette software to make it a little "fatter".

Some other products used on my layout:
Doilies from Michael's

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. So cute! You did such a great job making the photo the focus, even though the background paper is so colorful and busy!

  2. I love the colors! I need to use up a lot of my products too so this is great inspiration!
