I know this won't use up any product really but we tend to forget about all of the tools in our stash. Out of sight, out of mind. So this month try to play along with this one at least once to justify buying all those fun toys. :)
Create a Layout using at least 2 of the following "tools" from your stash:
Silhouette or Cricut
Mickey scissors from the parks ;)
Decorative edge scissors
sewing machine or hand stitching
Additional Challenge - Add Washi Tape to your layout. Not a tool but we NEED to use that stuff.
I don't have an example for you right now but I will have one soon.
Here's my first page for the challenge...I am loving the challenge to think outside the box and use tools I normally don't.
I used the PicScan mat for my Silhouette to cut out the banner pieces out of a piece of patterned paper with lots of color blocks. I used a border punch at the top of the layout. I pulled out my embossing folders and embossed vellum, and my sewing machine. :)
I used my Silhouette and it made me ANGRY. I don't know what I'm doing wrong with the foil paper and it pissed me off LOL
I used the settings for the media, I set it to double cut. It was a MESS.
I haven't used the sucker in years so that's part of the issue. I need to change blades probably.
Most of the time if mine doesn't cut then I need to change my blade or my mat. it can be very frustrating when it doesn't cut. :(
I sometimes yell some not so nice things at my Silhouette. Most of the time we are friends but sometimes things go very badly.
This is my take on this challenge.
I used my eyelet punch and set tools to place the Mickey eyelets that I rarely use because they are tough to set. I actually have to use a metal cutter to help me open them up to set them.
I also used 2 different stencils with Whipped Spackle (which is new for me) and lots of die cuts (my obsession!) Also, my old Mickey punches that I use often. ;-) All papers are also from my stash.
My husband's name is Jack and he's quite skinny so...well...let's just say he's a good sport. Also, my oldest son told us when he joined the Marine Corps that he wanted to run through the jungle with his hair on fire. This Rock N Roller Coaster hat reminded me of that. ;-)
