A New Layout for you...



Thought I would share with you all a layout I completed yesterday. This is my nephew Zeb, and I love the black/white/baby blue colors. I am trying to use up a lot of my stash
a. because I cannot afford new paper, and I have a ton here already
b. because I have looked and looked online and cannot find any patterned paper I like! I am serious! Either everything is sold out, or I can't get a good look at it-times like this I wish I had a good, big LSS closeby so I could buy paper in person!! If anyone has any good paper line recommendations, or any good reputable paper websites leave it in my comment sections!
I must admit, I am very much liking alot of the new SU! patterned paper in the new catalog and Holiday mini, along with the rub ons from both catalogs. They really seem to be stepping it up for the scrapbookers!
The black and white stripes/asterisks paper is Doodlebug. Black and white text paper is DCWV.
Textured cardstock is SU! Bashful Blue. I cut the black felt asterisks with the Cuttlebug. The chipboard letters/tab were originally brown, but I painted them black.
I used SU! Round tab punch, circle punch and scalloped circle punch. Flower stamp for journaling block is SU! Cool Cat, and Sweetie sentiment is from Purple Onion Designs. White zig zags are rubons, as is the black arrow. White straight stitches are Uniball Signo White Gel Pen. White lettering is Chatterbox Rubons. A little bit of everything, it is nice to use up some of my endless stash of rubons and paper!!
Thanks for looking, and have a great Sunday,
Keri

This is one of my favorite layouts of yours to date.

Paper----hmmmmmmm..........I like a lot of the Imaginesce Halloween, Basic Grey Euphoria (looks yucky online but is gorgeous!), Basic Grey Ambrosia, the new Making Memories Halloween, Pink Paislee, and on and on and on. I think you'd use the Cosmo Cricket Be Campy line. I think it's so cute but we don't camp!

lol. There's some temptation.

OMG! That is just gorgeous - so is your layout! LOL! What a precious baby! Lets see, favorite stores I have..... how about Limelight Papercrafts! She's always having a great sale on something and her customer service and fast shipping are awesome! I buy a lot from her and actually use everything I get! Now that's saying something! LOL!

Hey girl!
LOVE this layout! The journal card is awesome! I'm going to lift it...

Anyway, I thought of you as I was dippin' into my Cosmo Cricket Wanted stash yesterday... one of my faves! I know they had a huge warehouse sale recently... dang.. I should have stocked up...
I agree, the SU mini is HOT.. I'm saving bucks for that...

Other than that... all a girl needs is stamps, right? Time to make our own patterns...
