Tuesday Trio and Twelve set-up

I am happy to share my layout for Tuesday Trio challenge on Tuesday and not 2 weeks later as usual. The challenge for sketch 101 is to create a project based on the sketch without using any punches or diecut machines. For me it means only one thing - fussy cutting. I used paper from G.C.D. Studio baby paper pack and added some MME and Jenni Bowlin in the mix.  I finished with a vintage button - my flea market find.

Supplies: patterned paper (G.C.D. Studio, My Mind's Eye), bingo card (Jenni Bowlin),  tags (G.C.D. Studios), twine (The Twinery), vintage button

After I took the picture of the layout I added the date to right of the elephant.

I am trying my best to keep up with Twelve. I decided to change the colors that Stacy picked and spent hours choosing the names of the colors, the RGB values and than making the topic lists with new colors. It took forever. I am not sure it was the best way to spend my time but I love how it turned our. My 12 colors are yellow, orange, red, rose, magenta, purple, blue, cobalt, sky blue, turquoise, green, lawn green.

My inspiration file sits in a shopping basket that I was given at CHA years ago. It is not the most beautiful container my it will work. I made the dividers from the plastic Cropper Hopper dividers that I don't use and Colorbook paper pad.

The basket has enough room to hold the clipboard, the journal and the square punch.

Each topic has a matching envelope to hold the pictures and the small pieces that I will collect during the process.

I knew from the beginning that muffin tin will not work for me. I don't have enough space to store it and I wanted something that I can close. After checking my local Michael's I found those cute round boxes for 99 cents each. I plan to attach a magnet to the bottom and attach them to the magnetic board, but for now I found them room in my paint drawer.

I was not the only one enjoying the bright colors. Eli carefully opened each one of the jars, checked what is there and closed them. Hmmm,  feel a layout coming ....

  1. הדף מקסים! אוהבת את התרגום שלך לסקיצה.

  2. Love those little round containers and the clear lids, wonderful for seeing what is in them. This is a wonderful idea. Love the animals on the side of the photo in your layout ... very cute.

  3. I am so jealous that you get to take Twelve. I wanted to but it was kinda $$$ than I usually spend. By the time I convinced myself it would be worth it because of the cost divided by months you get input from Stacey it was too late by a day to register. Total bummer.
