Double Take - Stars and Pinwheels

Hi Sweet readers!! It's Michelle Y here and I’m so excited to have my first post up here at the Sweet Stamp Shop with a brand new series called Double Take! Twice a month, I’m going to be making a scrapbooking layout and a card using the same supplies or theme – that means that you get DOUBLE the use of your stash AND time.. what’s not to love?? Here's a look at the two projects I'll be sharing with you today:

Here are some pictures showing how my layout developed, and if you want to read more about the whole process, I have all the details on my blog!

At the end, I had just a few stamped pinwheels left that just had to be put to use – after stamping and fussy cutting them, there was no way I was just going to throw them out! I played around with them and absolutely LOVED how they looked layered on top of each other. I decided to make that the main accent for my card, and then chose a sentiment from the Super Mom stamp set. For just the tiniest little detail, I added a dot of Glossy Accents to the center of each and added some red glitter. Even though it’s the tiniest bit of sparkle, I think it really makes the card look more refined and finished!

I even had enough pinwheels for a second, coordinating card, which means that these two are a PERFECT, cute little set together!! Here’s a final look at them:

I hope you guys enjoyed this first installment of Double Take! I had a blast making these projects, and I hope you’re inspired to get double duty out of your stash AND time when you’re working on your next project!! Be sure to comment with a link to any projects you make using stars and pinwheels – I’d love to see your take on them!

Here are the stamp sets I used in these projects:

And remember, there are just a couple more days to enter in our "Use What You Have Challenge,"  so be sure to link up your project!! We just love seeing what you create!! :)

Until next time, craft on!!

    1. Me, too!! I have little bowls and boxes for extra cut outs and embellishments that don't always get used - they make their way onto future projects really easily like this!
