LM #573 - Stash Bash - Punches, Stickers, and/or Washi Tape

 Hello, hello! Happy Sunday to you! I hope that you are having a wonderful weekend. We have had a great weekend and today our plan is to watch some football - and I may see if I can get some scrapping or stitching done while we watch.

It is time for a new challenge at Lasting Memories today - and I am playing along! Our theme for November is "Stash Bash." With the end of the year coming up quickly we are trying to use up some of our stash. Each week you are given a set of three items and you can choose to use just one of the items on your layout, or you can use two of the items on our layout, or you can use all three items on your layout. The choice is yours! This week's challenge is to use punches, stickers, and/or washi tape on your layout. This is what I came up with:

I decided to create a layout in my 2018 Favorite Photos of Ada traveler's notebook. I am trying to finish up this traveler's notebook this month so I am sure you will be seeing it pop up a lot over the next few weeks. 

For this layout, I used the Simple Stories 'Freezin' Season' that I included in my November Lisa & Lori's Great Stash Bash kit. It was so nice having everything together and all ready to go when I sat down to scrap. The only things that I used that were not in my kit were the "snowflake" stamps (I think they are meant to be stars but I thought they could pass as snowflakes, too!), a circle punch, a scalloped circle punch, and a heart punch.

To satisfy the Lasting Memories challenge - I used punches (circle punch, scalloped circle punch, and heart punch) and stickers (some of the snowflakes, the igloo, the penguin, word phrase stickers) on this layout. I tried to use some washi, but I just couldn't get it to look right anywhere that I put it!

I based my layout on this Sunday Sketch from September 12th from the Journals For Life Facebook page:

Here are a few close-ups - first the left page:

I added a photo corner with a torn edge to bring the pink paper and the torn edges over to the left side of the page. I stamped a few snowflakes in grey, pink, and mint green to go with my papers. 

This little sticker cluster just makes me happy! I punched out a few snowflakes in circles that were on one of the patterned papers to add to this cluster. 

Here is the right page:

I fussy cut this snowglobe out of one of the patterned papers and popped it up with some foam tape. 

I punched these little snow people out of one of the patterned papers and added them to a scalloped circle for an embellishment. They are so cute!

This photo of Ada is from January 18, 2018. I think this was the first "big" snow that we had gotten since she was big enough to really enjoy it. She had so much fun playing out in the snow - until she threw this handful up into the air and it all blew back into her face and went down her coat. Then she was ready to go back inside!

That is one more spread done in my 2018 Favorite Photos of Ada TN. Just about 20 more to go! I can't wait to see how many I can get done this month.

Be sure to check out Lasting Memories to see how the rest of the design team took on this challenge. We would love it if you played along with us this month!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you have a great day!
