March Hostess Club Layout

Hostess Club for me is a lot of fun... I take time to look for ideas that feature interesting ideas to share with the members.  The first page is inspired by a layout found on the Jeanette Lynton Blog in 2012 and the second page is inspired by Dana Kessler's Ivy Lane layout.

With the long winter here in Iowa, this layout felt fresh and inviting and showed several great techniques... scissor distressing, stamping backgrounds tweaks, rainbow paper piecing and a few older techniques that work well in this layout, paper tearing and ink distressing.

The Artiste cricut cartridge was used.. page 56 accent 4 cut at 3 inches, using honey and goldrush and were lined up to allow both layers to show.  A sentiment is stamped on a 1.25 circle stamped in Autumn Terracotta and adhered in the middle of the sun.  

Other stamps used are the Full of Fun from the Laughing Lola WOTG and I loved the "chevrons" used on the sentiment, so the stamp set D1540 In the Background stamp set felt like a "Groovy" addition.  It was stamped off to lessen the color and also smudging the ends to get rid of the blunt ends helped it to add a design element to the feature.

Colors used in this layout are Lagoon, Honey, Goldrush, Autumn Terracotta, and Cashmere.  The layout is built on Colonial white cardstock.

Can't wait to see the what is created tonight by my guests!  Check back tomorrow for their creations!
