3-to-Inspire with Anna

Happy Saturday dear CTK friends! Anna here on the blog with this month's last 3-to-Inspire challenge (where did April go? Anyone can tell?) 
Anyway this is one of my favorite challenges and I love to share it with you. Hope you'll join me and play along for a chance to win a little something from the shop, YAY!

Here's the prompts for today:

1. Use stamp(s)
2. "Frame" your layout
3. Use at least two (2) stickers

And here's the page I came up with!

I've used the Savannah Main and Embellishment Kit on my page. I'm toltally in love with the happy colors and gorgeous embellishments included this month. It's pure happiness for sure!

My page started with my base paper on which I printed my chosen photo in an edited, almost translucent, version. I framed it with one of the patterned papers from the Main Kit and also I made a stitched frame with my old trusty sewing machine.

I stamped the Alpha Stamp set on the Vellum sheet from the Main Kit and used it for my layers under my photo. Tucked in one of the lovely Pinkfresh Studio stickers into my layers as well.

More gorgeous stickers!! And another stamp, my date stamp (from my own stash)
And who can resist these lovely glittery enamel shapes by Shimelle Box of Crayons?!
Abolutely gorgeous!

I love this little curly arrow stickers  from My Minds Eye Wander collection, soooo CUTE!
AND! Yet another stamped text from the stamp set from the Main Kit as well.

Anothe new favorite of mine, these fabulous die-cut phrases by Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful, irresisteble!

Now it's your turn. use the three (3) prompts to create your own project, marked with todays date, 4/28 3-to-Inspire, and share it with us on our CTK Fan Page on Facebook! I can't wait to see your take on this one!

Thanks for stopping by! Take care, Anna xo 


  1. oh my goodnesss I love so many things about this! I love alpha stamps in particular, yet never thought about using letters as a mat for a photo- genius!! I also love the placement and color of the thread. Anna- would you mind telling us more about how you work with the thread like this? Did you just kind of wind it up and then glue it down? Use tape? I'd love to know more!! :)

    1. Awww!!! Thanks so much lovely Amanda! You make my heart sing! About the thread, I just wind it up from the bobbin in three points, kind of a triangle, to catch the eye. Then I mount my photo upon it with 3D tape 👍🏻 I have a few videos up on YouTube where I use thread. You maybe can take a peek at them, just search on Anna Uhras 👍🏻😘 xo
