Welcome the Creative Embellishments 1st Anniversary blog hop. I’m honored to be taking part in this momentous occasion! If you stumbled on the hop here, then please go to Creative Embellishments blog for the hop details and begin the hop on Nicolle’s blog here… >> http://nicollelovesscrapbooking.blogspot.com/

I am happy you are here with us today to celebrate the Creative Embellishments 1 year anniversary! To celebrate, we’re having a dt hop and giving away FOUR $25.00 gift vouchers to the store! All you need to do to be entered to win one of the vouchers is leave a comment on the hop post on the CE blog letting them know what your favorite CE product is, then leave some love on each of our design team member’s blogs then follow each blog. We’re each sharing a project with our favorite CE product on it. The winner of the hop will be randomly selected and announced on Monday September 8th.

I LOVE Creative Embellishments’ product, so it was very hard to for to pick a favorite. Their laser cut chipboard is so intricate and lovely, their wood veneers are detailed and darling! Their newest product line, flair, are so awesome to work with and I can’t say enough about their laser etched rubber stamps. Those are awesome for mixed media projects. Since I couldn’t make myself pick a single favorite, I decided to go with two categories. Their frames and title pieces are definite MUST-HAVES!

With my pieces chosen, I decided to create an off the page project for you all today. I hope you like it! 😀

Daddy’s Girl – Pagemaps sketch challenge entry

Now that I’m getting back to scrapping, I really really need to use up my older stash. There are several collections in my stash that were already a few years old when I started scrapping, so my current goal is to use my oldest product whenever I can. 😀 For my take on the Pagemaps sketch that was posted on May 22nd, I decided to go with Delightful and Clothesline by Little Yellow Bicycle. They had the perfect shades of pink, purple and blue to go with the photos of my daughter w/her father that I wanted to scrap. I chose the bolder purple and pink to go with her backpack and a light blue that matches her shirt. I then added some old and newer embellies to update the overall look of my page.

Out of all the years our older boys went to school, then our younger two, this was the only year that Larry happened to have off from work and could come with me to drop the kids off for their first day of school. Madison was particularly excited by that as you can see by the expression on her face. She truly is her daddy’s little girl. 😀

Here’s what I came up with for the challenge:

This is the sketch I used:

Materials:

Little Yellow Bicycle papers
Pink Paislee Artisan Elements
Freckled Fawn wood hearts and heart clip
Prima Junkyard Findings zipper pull and camera shaped clip
Dusty Attic chipboard title piece
Queen & Co. bling
Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze
white acrylic paint

Adhesives:

Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots
Scotch ATG
Helmar Acid Free glue

Tools:

Martha Stewart Around the Page punch
