{Little Cuties} Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop!

Hello and happy Friday y'all!  Welcome, welcome.  You may have arrived today from Katrina's blog.  Her projects are amazing!  Glad you could stop by.  Today I'm sharing a layout using the Creative Scrappers April Sketch (which is FABULOUS!) and American Crafts Better Together collection.  And I have a giveaway!  Take a peek at my layout.  My nephew and niece are super cute!!

I started with some CTMH Outdoor Denim cardstock for the backdrop for these fun papers!  I created a quick template to cut the triangles using my Cameo because I'm not good with the diagonals using my Fiskers trimmer - ha!  I cut triangles from 3 papers and offset the stars and the hearts to be opposite each other.  I purposely left the right side blank to help show the title better.  And then I sewed along the inside edge of each triangle.

After matting and sewing the photos of those cuties, I popped it up with 3D foam.  Super fun!  And then I had a star party!  I cut several using my Cameo but I also put some star stickers, sequins, and enamel stars.

 And then I put even more on!

Next I created the title using my Cameo to cut the "little" and some Thickers for "cuties".

I printed out some journaling strips and popped those up with 3D foam tape too.

I adore that star paper...must. buy. more!  ;)  Here's a quick look at the other embellishment areas.

And there you have it!  I had so much fun with this sketch, I hope you are inspired to create with it.

And now for the good part!  It's GIVEAWAY time!
