3 to Inspire with Missy

Hey, friends!  Missy here to share this week's "3 to Inspire" Challenge :)

You are welcome to create a layout or a PL spread, but you must include all 3 prompts on your project.   Here is what you need to use on your project:

1.  Use paint, ink or mist (as much or as little as you'd like...I used watercolor and Color Shine).
2.  Use hand stitching or machine stitching.
3.  Use something fussy cut from patterned paper.

Here is what I created using the 2016 February "Stories" Main Kit.  I mainly used pieces from the Maggie Holmes Bloom cut apart sheet and created a grid design.  I used watercolors on the background and added a large die cut butterfly.  I used lots of bits & pieces from the Pink Paislee collection, and I fussy cut those cute hearts from the Studio Calico paper.

I love these fun tab pieces from Pink Paislee!  They are perfect for layering and adding details to your layout.  This fun doilie gives such a feminine look to a page.  I used a blue colored gelato here to add a hint of blue to this side of the layout.  I also used my sewing machine here with some shiny gold thread.

I machine stitched through this black piece here, and I used one of those fussy cut hearts here.  I added even more gold thread just because I love it!  This fun cork piece was the perfect touch to add on top of the cute frame.

Hello adorable puffy stickers!  I am in love with this cluster...Pink Paislee knocked it out of the park with these gorgeous stickers!

I have a process video for you if you'd like to see how I created this layout...I hope you enjoy it!

Now it's your turn!  Use the 3 prompts to create your own project, share it with us here in the gallery, and you will be eligible to win a small prize from the CTK Store.  Make sure to include the date of the challenge in the title of your gallery submission.  I can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks for stopping by, and happy scrappin'!

  4. This is so pretty! I love the grid layout! I just ordered a water brush and can't wait to play with some watercolors! Was wondering if the printables are available for pocket life kit subscribers, as well as traditional scrapbookers? Thanks!

    1. Thank you so much! There are exclusive printable/cut apart sheets in the PL kit!

    2. Oh, of course! I was thinking the printable was different from the cut-apart :) My mistake!
