Stick it Down DT Project for October

Hello Lovelies!

It's Stick it Down time again! Please head on over to the blog to see what the other girls have made!

As I may have already mentioned, NotPinkCraftyHubster and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary on the 7th of this month.  While I have been scrapbooking wedding photos for the past month or so, this sketch reminded me of a Paige Evans cutfile I had (with stitching holes) which I planned to use to scrapbook some anniversary photos from 2018.  

I added additional cut files of the card suits before sending it through to the Silhouette.  I'm pretty sure it has been waiting patiently for me since then!

I picked a variegated pink floss to tie in with the small amount of pink in the costumes.  There will be a facing page with larger photos.  That's why the journaling is really brief.  It's scattered across all the pages from the Alice in Wonderland exhibition we to on our anniversary that year

I cut back the white cardstock a bit and added red and black gliiter paper behind the holes shaped like the card suits (Glue Dots to stick bumpy to bumpy) and a 2 tone navy diagonal stripe as a frame since I wanted to bridge the gap between blue and black. 

I used both the first and second Alice in Wonderland collections by Echo Park.  I rarely stick to one manufacturer, but I felt between the paper and embellies and the fairly minimalist sketch, I had everything I needed.  

 In any case, while I do often take a sketch way past the point I shoould have stopped at, I had to keep telling mysef the stitching kind of works as embellishment anyway.


I sneaked in some extra paper layers (and die cuts posing as paper layers - rather apropos for Alice, no?),

It was the ideal layout to add some Emerald Creek charms to and a few brads from the rapidly dwindling pack.  Just a few left! 

In lieu of a separate title, I cut out the had and quote from a 3x4 card and attached to to a stack of squares to fit better in the space.  I felt the wording wasn't entirely out of place with the journaling!


Do More of What Makes You Happy

Love, and Stick it Down!
