Working the alphabet - one manufacturer at a time :)

Hi everyone! :) 

This weekend I continued my alphabet quest that I mentioned in my post last week :) 

This weekend I worked on some more American Crafts stash and then dug into my Basic Grey stash and I wanted to share the layouts I made :) 

American Crafts layouts :)

For this first one... I was inspired by Monique's layout where she used the nozzle in her mist bottle to 'draw' with :)






And my second American Crafts layout :)
 


 

 Next up ... my Basic Grey layouts :)









And these next two layouts are very much alike - but remember, I am trying to USE up my stash this year and I had two sheets of journal stickers from Basic Grey and I was inspired by Stephanie's layout to use journal tags/stickers as a background :) 









For this one ... I doodled hearts on all the journal stickers  :) 

 







Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

  18. Awesome! If I tried to use up my stash alphabetically, I'd be stuck in BG forever. I have WAY too much of their stuff. Of course, maybe that's exactly the reason I should...
