WOYWW 115 Feeling Scrappy

Today I'm working on a Papertrey Ink layout. I bought enough stamps over the last year to qualify for the Thank You Anniversary set and I just loved the printed piece that came with it. So when I was cleaning up after my Club Ruby Designers August Design Team projects, I came across the thank you and a layout was started. I really do try to clean, I just keep getting interrupted lol. The 12 x 12 paper is made from two different sheets glued together.

I also finally finished (and photographed) the cards I made from my Paper Layerz experiments. Rather I was testing the dickens out of the paper and couldn't bear to throw them away lol. With Papertrey Ink cardstock for the card bases, I made a whole stack of cards using one 12 x 12 sheet of PaperLayerz. And I still have some more to finish!

After I took the Damask Decor silhouette cut off the mat, this was left, well this was face down on the mat. And it looked too pretty to scrap off, so I put glue on the back (that was facing up on the mat), and put the mat on it, let it dry and then pulled it off, put some faux stitching and another mat on it and ta da, second card lol.

This is an A2 sized card, I never thought I could make this Paper Lace cut at less than four inches. It's glued on with Patina Stickles. The other cut was an experiment from years ago lol.

The moon and dream are from Graphically Speaking. That dream cut is tinnnnny, but easy peasy on the PaperLayerz. I got the little bit of dimension by putting Tombow Adhesive on the back and letting it dry (it's still really tacky though after it's dry). The toughest part was transferring the cut from my fingers to the paper lol. I used Marvy Ink's Ochre to edge the mat (more scraps from the past btw).

The last two cards were made from one Creative Memories Reminisce cut. The soar is colored with the Stardust gel pen and attached using the dried Tombow adhesive. Platinum stickles for a little more sparkle lol (I'm such a magpie!).

I used the Papertrey Ink white Shimmer cardstock as the base for this one. White gel pen and Faded Jeans Distress Stickles for extra umph :D.

If you are wondering what's all this WOYWW, head over to Julia Dunnit's Stamping Ground and have a gander. Better yet, snap a picture of your workspace and join in the fun!

You have been busy and its far more interesting than cleaning! I have the same problem. I start cleaning and then I find something I had forgotten about, inspiration strikes... and well, you know what happens then.
Happy WOYWW

I've been busy with a house guest much of this week, so that's why I've been unable to visit. I finally am here to catch up. Even missed WOYWW this week. Those cards are adorable. I especially LOVE the soar ones. I'm into birds, though. I'm off to see what else I've missed.
