Scrapping Our Stash May Blog Hop + Giveaway

Happy Friday and welcome to the Practical Scrappers Scrapping Our Stash May Blog Hop! You may have arrived here from Alison's blog, but if not, make sure you head over to check out what she has to share with you today too.

The Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop is a group of scrappers who are using up their scrappy stash and sharing some inspiration along the way. Today, I'm sharing a scrapbook page that I created of my sweet husband - I totally love this guy! To create my layout, I used some Heidi Swapp papers and other embellishments that have been in my stash for a bit along with one of my older downloadable cut files called Unending Circles.

Here are some close ups so that you can see all the little stash goodies that I added to my layout. I don't know about you, but I'm really digging puffy stickers lately and it was fun adding the little triangle and arrow stickers to this layout.

I used my sewing machine to sew along the outside edge of all of the green triangles - which I cut with my Silhouette. And, a little trick you might enjoy is that I used washi tape to hold the loose threads in place instead of tying a knot. I love finding new ways to use my stash of washi tape! 

Use washi tape to hold the loose threads when you sew on your scrapbook paper.

Now, it's your turn to help me bust my stash! And to do this, I'm having a

  3. Great layout, love the colors! I use Washi Tape for card making, not much else. I usually don't think about it until it is too late, but that's something I plan to change soon... I'm hoping to use up a lot of it this summer.

  5. Awesome layout! I have tons of washi and am never quite sure what to do with it. For the most part I use it to tape down a photo I wanna give a bit if interest to and for making bannera on my pages

  6. I was so looking forward to seeing your work on the blog hop and you did not disappoint! Thank you for the file. I love background files so much and this one is awesome.I really like the dark thread on the green triangles it looks great. I had never thought of using washi to "tie" up the loose ends, fun tip. I love washi tape and use it more on card than layouts..... I am thinking I need to re think that.

  10. I haven't done much with washi but decided to give it a go last week. I layed rows of washi (different sizes and colors) on the base of my card. I then cut stars out of one piece of white CS and put that over the washi. You get varigated stars peeking through. I also did that with butterflies. I used white card stock for the cut sheet and it looked nice but I think I'm going to do another and use black CS for the butterflies. Haven't decided if I want to change the white for the stars. thanks for offering to share your stash. Always fun to open and box and be surprised. take care.

  12. So bold, bright and fun! Love it! I love to use washi tape to create jars, vases and other containers. I also love it as banners, flags, edging and borders on my pages.

  14. Washi as a border, stripes and for adding a bit of spark... I use it all the time. Beyond washi, I never would have thought to use that paper for a layout above my husband but WOW, I love it. The bold black settles it and yet it still screams fun. thanks for the inspiration.

  15. I love this layout - the colours are so nice and bold, and the unending circles die cut is a perfect way to keep the focus on your photo. Love all the bits and pieces too! I had a few rolls of washi tape in my stash for awhile that I didn't really use. And then as I began to collect more, I began to find different uses for it and now it's a mainstay for me! Probably my favourite way to use it is to add touches of colour and patterns on layouts. Thank you SO much for the great giveaway, Juliana :)

  16. So many great details on this layout - the stitching is wonderful! I use washi tape all the time. Sometimes I use it to pull a color out of a photo and tie it to the DP I am using...also use it to hold my dies in place!

  26. Love your bright layout and your cut file. Thank you for sharing it. I like to use washi tape to tape down my paper on my Silhouette cutting mat when the mat isn't very tacky. It gives me a little more mileage to my mat.
