**New** Stuck On U Sketches Project Life Challenge

Hello and once again welcome to the latest and greatest Stuck On U Sketches PL challenge!

I am loving these challenges, how about you? They get me pulling out items that us scrapbookers have in their stash but don't use as often as we'd like ;)).

This week's challenge is:


I have a button jar in my scrap room and no it's not orphan buttons from clothing it's buttons mostly from scrapbook monthly kits, it's pretty much impossible for me to use them all but I can't bear to throw them out as some of them are so cute!

That's where this week's challenge comes in and here's how I used the buttons:

The bling on the upper left card is a button from my button jar, I glued it to the outside of the pocket with Tombow Mono MultiLiquid Glue. Adhering it to the outside of the page protector keeps the pocket nice and flat in my scrapbook.

I also used some cute shaped buttons as an accent on the journal card and here's a detailed photo of that:

A little side note about this layout, you can see I only had 2 photos for this week so this was the perfect opportunity to include some artwork from my kindergartner, fills out the layout and gives the future reader a great glimpse of this guy's life as a little one.

I would love to see your Project Life spread for this challenge so link us up at SOUS. This will also give you the opportunity to win this wonderful prize package from our very own SOUS Sponsor Coordinator, Helen Gullet!

Thanks for stopping by!

**Scrap Shotz June Kit Reveal**

Yes it is July so I have to apologize for being so slow at getting this up and for the quality of the photos...of course it was a cloudy day when I photo'd these projects.

There may be some June kits left featuring Simple Stories "Good Day Sunshine", I'm not totally certain about that but click this Scrap Shotz link if you're interested in it and check out the June 1 New Products, some new items just went up a few days ago!

Here we go with my Scrap Shotz June kit projects!

This layout was based on our CT sketch. Love being able to get so many photos on it as well as use a bunch of chipboard I might struggle to use in other circumstances :)

These next 6x8 pages are comprised of kit products and a 6x8 Simple Stories album. I plan to document our family's July 2014 in the album and with the kit products.


The base of this layout was misted a long time ago and the kit paint medium was the perfect complement to the misted colour.

This cloud paper is super easy to use, a lovely base for pretty much any photo!

The kit colour medium is a beautiful color, Maya Gold "Petrol". I stamped a background for this card with a wine cork and end of a paper piercer. 

This next card was super easy as it is made from a 3x4 cut out from the SS paper, a few enamel dots and Elizabeth Crafts peel off "Happy Birthday" sentiment.

This is a fabulous kit, packed full of products and I have soooo much left to work with and use in my July project!

Thanks for stopping by!
