Bits and Pieces...

was the second challenge for February! And I had decided that I would use whatever was on my desk! Good thing I'm messy and don't tend to pick up when I'm done creating! As far as stamps I chose to use bits and pieces of stamps to go along with the theme. I'm pretty darn happy with this layout.

Serendipity Stamps
*Bent Feather Stamp (066c)
*Smile (430c1)
*Magic Happens (371D)
*Black cardstock
*paper scraps
*ribbon scraps
*silver brads
*letter stickers
*red colored pencil
*black pen
*piercing tool
*soft mat

1. Cut strips of cardstock out line them in black pen, and glue them to the base cardstock. Adhere pictures to the top.
2. Stamp three images on neutral paper, stamping feather twice. Adhere them to the layout! (I lightly colored my feathers red, since our mascot was the cardinal.)
3. Attach ribbon to label and add title!
4. Using piercing tool make holes in the shape of swirls. Put brads into holes.

So challenge yourself to see what you can put together with just bits and pieces.

On to our other designers for the month,
I can't wait to see what they came up with!
