August 2015 Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop

Hello friends! I'm happy you are here! You should have arrived here from Cathy Harper's blog.

Today it's all about using our stash and I'm sure every paper crafter and scrapbooker has one.  I wanted to share a layout I created using some Bella Blvd. papers from the Summer Squeeze Collection.

For this layout, I used a 3 inch circle paper punch and cut out several circles of patterned papers and then I cut the circles in half and then in half again.  Now you will have four pie shapes for each circle.

I watercolored my background paper and matted my photos.  I arranged the pie shapes in circles with different papers and machine stitched them and added some embellishments such as stickers, bows and enamel dots.

I hope you enjoyed your visit.  Next up is Christine's blog.  Here is the blog hop list just in case.  You don't want to miss all the scrappy inspiration.

Thanks for hopping!
