ssbloghop-2013The giveaway for this month’s Simple Scrapper blog hop is amazing! Really an awesome one to win so make sure you read all the way to the end to enter for your chance to win!

This month, I made two LO’s from the same sketch so you can see how versatile they are, and one LO from the Story Starters.

All the sketches were letter size, or 8.5 x 11, this month, a size I love! Here’s the first LO I made:

reading rocksThe kiddies love to have stories read to them and they always want to sit on the same sofa no matter who is doing the reading.

I added a little interest to this one with a punched edge and some stapled baker’s twine, a couple of my new favourite things to do!

The second LO, as mentioned, is from the same sketch but I made a 12×12:

With this one, I layered a bunch of elements in the top corner and added metallic stitching:

I added lots of dimension and texture here with both the layers of papers and the paint through the stencils:
