Happy 5 - Teresa Collins (Urban Market) - Stash busting #2

Hello there crafty friends.  I am sharing another stash busting page.  I adored the Teresa Collins collections and I bought them ALL.  The result is that I have a huge stash of this pretty papers and it needs to find a home.  Today I am scrapping a page of photos taken with my youngest grandson, Juan, on his 5th birthday.  Here is the page:

Supply list:  Patterned papers:  Teresa Collins (Urban Market); Cardstock:  American Craft; Wood Veneer: Teresa Collins, Flagstick:  Dear Lizzy; Bling: Crystal stickers; Enamel shapes: Teresa Collins; Die cuts/stickers: Teresa Collins; Embroidery Floss: DMC; Ink:  Distress Ink (Scattered Straw); Stencil: Crafters Workshop; Stamp: Prima; Dies: Quickutz; Compass: Silhouette Studio.

Here is the sketch that I used from Pagemaps:

Some close ups:
 I used a patterned paper as a background...something I seldom do...and I stenciled and stamped on it to create some texture  I also ruffled up the edges of my layers...something I don't normally do.

 I cut the compass with my Silhouette Cameo.

 The "Happy" was fussy cut from a cut apart sheet and the wood veneer were all heat embossed.

 ....stitching to finish the look.

The ruffling of the layers creates amazing dimension.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you are inspired to dig into your older neglected stash and play with it.  I feel so much better knowing that I am not just letting it gather dust.♥♥
