Winner!

I thought I posted this already! oooops. I had taught how to create this card & scrapbook page at my July Hostess Club & class nights in July, and thought... what the heck, I'll send it in... and ta da! I was fortunate enough to win TAC's July 'Card to Crop' contest for demonstrators!! Yeay... more free stamps, paper, & ribbon... oh my :)

Stamps: Linear Sentiments, Running Stitches, Creative Inspiration

Paper: Neutrals cardstock Stack, White UltraSmooth


Ink: Moulin Rouge, New Canvas, & Noir Palettes

Other: White Scrapper's Floss, sanding block, pop dots & glue dots, Scor-Bug, foam tape

I stamped the stitches on the card, but switched it up and used the Scor-Bug on the page. I love the white core cardstock... it is perfect for sanding & distressing to really give a 'worn' look. I even sanded the edges of the photo... that is one of my BFF's son, Braden (total cutie!!).

I went a little button-happy on these, but if you could see the jar o' buttons I have, you would not be surprised :) I need to sort them into several smaller jars so it is easier to find certain colors... although it is fun to just root around in the big jar (just time consuming!).

I sketched a primative looking star for the background to the photo mat... very primative! The edges are inked very lightly... along with the other stars. And I don't know if I could live without my Scrapper's Floss & glue dots for buttons...

What do you think?

OK, so Americana and Primitive- you just sent me over the top!! Love it!!

Scrapper's floss and buttons- funny story- The little Prayer journal I just finished I used the button with floss. Oh but I was so mad once I finish the page and then really looked at it! My floss was coming out of the top of my button- my whole plan was to have it on the bottom- just like Barb!! Those darn glue dots are super sticky too, so forever I will be reminded that my button is on upside down.
