Charlotte Leftovers -- Today Is Your Day

A few weeks ago, I shared a couple posts regarding the Charlotte Workshop Your Way and the leftovers remaining after completing the suggested projects in the kit.  You can find those posts here and here.  This week, I'm going to share the projects I made using the leftovers.  By adding a few basic supplies, I was able to create two cards and a single page scrapbook layout.

Today I'm sharing the layout made using Champagne cardstock for a base.  To create the title, I loosely cut out the outline of the word "today", mounted on White Daisy cardstock, and then trimmed it tightly along the outline of the word.  I added the stitching by hand using the CTMH ruler with stitching guide holes and the extra long foam mat.

TIP:  Using the outline of your stickers in additional to the stickers themselves is a great way to basically double the use of your sticker sheets.  While it may not work with all stickers, it works with a good majority and gives you lots of creative freedom.

Supplies used:
*Charlotte Workshop Your Way (leftovers)
*12" x 12" Sorbet cardstock
*12" x 12" White Daisy cardstock
*Scallop border punch
*Marvy Uchida LePen journaling pen
*Ruler with stitching guide holes
*Piercing & embossing tool kit
*Foam mat

I hope you'll come back Friday to see the final project I made with my Charlotte WYW leftovers.

Until next time, design with {heart}!
