Worth Remembering – Stick It Down Reveal

Hello and happy May! Saturday was National Scrapbook Day so I hope you found some time to be crafty this weekend!  It’s time for the Stick It Down double page team reveal for this month.

I dug into my stash for this one for pictures, papers and embellishments.  The sketch design reminded me somewhat of a quilt, and the Bazzill Basics Worth Remembering line also reminded me of some quilt patterns.  I have an abundance of Creative Escape pictures I haven’t scrapbooked yet so this was the perfect storm.  The final Creative Escape was based on the theme of Worth Remembering, including those papers and vintage feel embellishments.  So here is what I came up with for this month:

I added some quilt style stitching around the patterned paper sidebars to continue the quilting and vintage feel.  The title was cut on the Silhouette and then some Wink of Stella red glitter was added over top.  Some photo stickers were added from the Simple Stories 24/7 collection as they have a similar colour palette.  And finally the page was finished off with some stamping, journaling, pearls, clear button, and twine.  The paper, flowers, pearls, button and twine are all Bazzill. The stamps are Stampin’ UP! and American Crafts Dear Lizzy.  The ink is Close To My Heart.

Here is the sketch we had for inspiration:


Hop on over to the Stick It Down blog and see what the rest of the team has created for your inspiration, and then join us in any or all of the sketch challenges for the month.  Linking up gives you a chance to win a prize, or to be a monthly featured designer.  As always, I can’t wait to see what you create this month!
