9 Months Layout

For this month's Scrap Your Stash challenge from Let's Scrap, we were asked to use the following on our layout:
• 3 patterned papers (I combined papers from 3 different CTMH paper packs)
• 6 eyelets, brads, or bling (I chose brads)
• Sticker letters (I now remember why I switched over to stamping and using the Cricut for my titles - I had to go through 3 sets of letter stickers before I found one that could spell out my title)
• Ribbon or twine (I chose Baker's twine)
• Ink (edges of all paper are inked)
I also incorporated some felt that I've had in my stash for a couple of years (a 4 Crafty Chicks challenge item) and a die cut number I got in a pack from JoAnne's many years ago, so I'm happy I cleaned out a few stash items! The journaling and the border towards the bottom of the page were zip strips from the For Always paper pack. Please click on the photo for a closer look!

SCS Variety Challenge 188 - Birthday

The fourth Wednesday of the month always signals a new variety challenge for Splitcoast Stampers, so come join in the fun and play along using the link below!

SBVC188 - Control, Alt, Delete
For this week's variety challenge, I want you to scraplift yourself! There's a twist, though. Once you've picked your layout, you must also pick one item you want to delete from your original layout. For example, use one less photo, or don't add one of the photo mats, or use one less embellishment cluster. Be sure to post a link to your original layout so we can see the changes.

For my layout, I scraplifted my Dinos and More layout, and I deleted the ribbons, since they didn't really seem to go on a guy's birthday page.
