LMCB #85 - Grab those stencils!

This week we're challenging you to dig out those stencils and if you don't have actual stencils, get creative! Use those negative die cut pieces, trace something - you get the idea! We can't wait to see what you come up with this week.

One lucky entry will win a $10 gift certificate for Michaels or JoAnn's this week compliments of MICHELLE!! Thank you, Michelle!

If you need some inspiration here is a fabulous sketch from Sketchy Thursdays to get you started!!

Here is my take on the challenge. I do not have any stencils so I used the scrap from the mickey head punches as a stencil. I inked them with black. Then down the right side I inked the negative of a die cut star. I did some faux stitching with my gel pen.

I hope you enjoy my layout and I can't wait to see yours linked up here.

LMCB #84 –“Hopping Into Spring!”

This week at Lasting Memories Challenge Blog we are “Hopping Into Spring!”. We want you to show us your Easter/Spring time layouts.

This week we have blog candy for the winner. One lucky person will get a $15 gift certifciate to either JoAnne's or Michaels. (winners choice) Now onto the challenge.

As always it is not necessary to use the sketch but if you need some inspiration , here it is.

Now here is my Easter layout. It is actually a second page of a layout I did for an earlier challenge, LMCB #78 - Color challenge. I had more pictures to add and I wanted to rearrange the original so here is the second page. This page was stamped with egg shaped stamps I got in the dollar bin of ACMoore, The brown ones were embossed with clear powder to give the yellow paper a design with texture. There were oither eggs stamped with pink and purple ink at the bottom of the page under the grass I fussy cut from glittered card stock.  Hope you enjoy.

Now go link up you projects here for a chance at the gift card.
