More Crate .... from the leftovers!!!

Are you the type of scrapper who carefully tidies up after each layout before starting on the next page or do you see what else you can make from the bits of paper and embellishments left on your craft table?

 This evening I want to share with you Jo's second layout which shows how easy it is to make a second layout just by using up whatever is left on your desk.

Jo used strips from the offcuts of the curtains and pattern papers that were used on the first page to create a matt for her photograph.

Next, a few carefully selected chipboard pieces ~ again from the same chipboard sheet as used on the previous layout create the title and some Crate stickers and chipboard accents are layered up to give dimension. Some of the stickers can be cut and just use half (another way to make your stash go further!). I love how Jo has clustered her embellishments to the top right of her page to balance the little "stinkin' cute" sticker on the photo.

If you feel inspired to use up whatever is laying on your desk next time you scrap, why not leave a comment here as I'd love to come and see!

Crate Random Collection ~ By Jo

Today I'd like to share with you the first of the layouts created by Design Team member Jo using  Crate Paper's Random collection.

I am delighted to have Jo on our new Design Team and 'm sure you'll agree she has done a fantastic job with her first box of DT stash!

I love this "Sweet and Adorable" layout ~ just look at that cute smile!
The photo didn't actually have a lot of colour in it but by layering up the patterned papers Jo has added lots of colour and fun to the page.

The chipboard accents add lots of dimension and interest and make a handy title too!

Jo said "I used plenty of the chipboard die cuts on this page, layering them up. The amount of chipboard die cuts on the sheet make them excellent value!"

All the edges have been inked with distress ink, a great technique for bringing the different elements of a layout together.

Jenni Bowlin tiny alpha stickers add the details of the photograph.

I'll be back later to show you Jo's 2nd page but in the meantime if you want to see more of her amazing work, pop over to her blog.
