March Dust It Off Challenge - Stacy H-W







Design Team Member Stacy said:

When I heard the theme of the March Dust it off Challenge I wasn't sure which of my scrappy things that were gathering dust I would be using, but then the other DT members were talking about their Fastenators. And how they never use them.


I asked what is a Fastenator? And got a quick reply that it was a stapler that uses special staples....well guess what....


I HAVE ONE OF THOSE! LOL


I just didn't know it was called a Fastenator. And guess what else??? It has been stuck away in a container just gathering dust FOREVER.

Soooooo, here is my March layout using the Fastenator!!! LOL


I used a Sassy Lil Sketches February Sketch as my starting off point and some sweet pictures of my dd trying on her Uncle's hat. She sure thought she was hot stuff!! ha


I used We R Memory Keepers paper - Be My Valentine - Love Letters, Affectionately Yours, Love Birds and Irresistible.


I also used some Making Memories heart shaped glitter clears, lime green Fastenator staples, a Colorbok layered title, a vinyl American Crafts thicker that I inked and layered on a KCK chipboard piece. I pulled some buttons and bakers twine from my stash too. And ended with my favorite thing....crystal stickles!


So there you go...my take on the March challenge. Now, where is yours??

  2. That is a funny story about "discovering" your Fastenator! Love this layout, great use of the sketch and wonderful colors!

  3. Funny enough - I sold my fastenator at my moving sale last May. Just last month I picked up a bunch of craft items off of CL and one of the "bonus" items was a fastenator! Aaaaa! So don't bother to get rid of it, it'll come back! Your page looks pretty, I like the sketch and the way you subtly used those ginormous staples!

  4. Love all of the pp you used on your layout. The button banner is really cute.

    Too funny how you "dicovered" that you had a Fastenator.
