Here is Kristine's sketch ...
With pocket scrapbooking being so trendy, grid designs for layouts are a growing trend too. Here is my take on the sketch using the fabulous patriotic Pebbles Americana collection...
Here are some close-ups. I found this fabulous title in the Silhouette library. What caught my attention was the rocket. It reminded me of the pattern paper with rockets in the Americana collection. Some gesso under the title really makes it pop and keeps the background from being too distracting.
The Americana collection also comes with these amazing die cuts too. I couldn't resist using this LOVE stamp since it was our anniversary :)
The star washi from Love My Tapes was PERFECT! Don't you love how that looks!

Love My Tapes is sharing washi tape storage ideas today. How do you store your washi? I am embarrassed to admit, I had mine in a tote. I needed a way to keep my Love My Tapes washi separated from the rest of my stash. I wanted something I could have out on my desk that would be a reminder to me to use it. If I can see my stash I am more apt to use it. I found this fabulous treasure at my local Michaels store...
The top opens to allow easy access to my washi :) The other designers have such fabulous storage systems too. You can check them out on the Love My Tapes blog.
Enjoy whats left of your weekend. I hope to see you playing along with Creative Scrappers.
