Follow Your Bliss

Ready for a scrap challenge? Your Scrapbook Stash is sponsoring a new sketch site this week, Sketch Inspiration. Here's the exclusive sketch by Aphra Bolyer:

And here's my take on the sketch:

I've been meaning to try out an adaptation of Christine Middlecamp's embellished paper doily tutorial and the blocks in Aphra's sketch gave me the perfect opportunity to do so. Having bought some manila tags recently, I decided to create some mini collages on tags and make these the central theme of my layout.

I went for simple layering, playing with some butterfly and circle punches on Basic Grey's sweet Olivia papers.

Some close-ups:

Flowers, butterflies, lace, trim and sparkleys make for a pretty tag. :) The title is a metal embellishment from The Girls Paperie.

Layered Prima flowers and tiny little butterflies adorn the tag on the right while a simple, classic layering holds centre stage on the other tag.

So much fun to be had with a few butterfly and circle punches. :)

Your Scrapbook Stash is also having two contests right now. The first is a Summer contest, where you can enter any new summer-themed layout or mini-album. And the second is a Christmas card contest. Check out the details here: Contests at YSS.

And if you entered the YSS Scrap Contest, be sure to keep an eye out on the blog because the winners will be announced soon. :)

Happy scrapping!
