It is now time to meet our November
"My crafty name is Kate Blue, (or Queen Kat as my friends playfully call me since I love all things Snow White and the Evil Queen) coming from the great state of Maryland! In my previous life, I was an accountant until 7 years ago when I became a stay at home mom to care for my son had some serious ongoing health issues. So, I am now a wife, mom, semi home schooler, special needs advocate, cook, chauffeur and more to my two children and husband. I have been scrapping/crafting for about 7 years as well; I never considered myself artsy EVER (I can't even draw a stick person LOL) but came into scrapbooking accidentally when it was suggested that I look into it as a way to relieve the high stress levels I had since my son had been hospitalized/ill for almost two years. After 6 months of collecting supplies and a Scrapbook 101 class, I was hooked! I generally stick to scrapbooking, SMASHing, mini books and some mixed media canvases; for some reason, card making and stamping stump me in a major way!
And now for Kate's awesome layout inspired by this month's Stash Challenge:
Here is what Kate shared about her layout:
"In 2013, I became a huge fan of 6 x 6 paper packs and they are starting to accumulate! I knew that I wanted to scrap this Disney photo and after long thought, I decided on showing that you can use your 6 x6 papers in bits and pieces-you don't have to use the whole sheet. I used the Glitz "Unchartered Waters" 6 x 6 papers in small snippets along the top of my photo and also in the background of my embellishment cluster since I wanted to highlight more of the (6) items I chose which were STICKERS! I went crazy and used more than 6 stickers but as you can see , I tucked them in here & there AND I layered them too:) Thanks to Scrap Our Stash for this combined challenge because I struggle to use stickers (normally I use 2 or 3 and then let the sheet sit around unused) and I loved that the challenge made me use them up!"
Ready, set, go...your turn to get pull out your 6 x 6 pads and dig into that stash of embellishments, get creative and upload your layout for a chance to win our monthly prize and/or possibly have your entry selected as one of our November Top 3 Picks!!!!
