Use your stash Tuesday

This is the layout that I did for the circles and buttons challenge over at Personalscrapper for the online crop. I used sketch #6 from the 52 sketches/52 weeks site. I really enjoyed working with this sketch and plan to use it again and again as it is so easy to change up a bit to fit your needs. I also was able to dig into some of my old stash to complete this layout, including: EYELETS! Yes, folks I was eyelet crazed at some point and still have 1000's of them left...so I was able to use up quite a few here. The patterned papers are from MME's for the August 2007 Personascrapper kit, so it was about time to use these up. I also used a left over scrap of cardstock (the blue) that was just the perfect size for this sketch! I also used an old technique to me..I punched holes using my Crop-A-Dile at the bottom of the title block and then added a strip of red cardstock underneath to give some texture to my page. Try this sometime, it is easy and very eye catching! One other reason I like this sketch; it allowed me to use a LONG title, and not many sketches make that much room for the title, although I believe on the original sketch more room was given for journaling but for this layout I didn't have a whole lot of journaling so the long title was able to go in the space allowed for extra journaling. Hope you are having a spectacular week and get some time to use up some of your stash today! I have a really fun layout to share for Git R Done Wednesday but it is not my last 1/2 completed page. More on that page as its role as thorn in Lisa's side tomorrow!
