I answered that question for myself and it is: 81 pieces of stash busting goodness on one layout (excluding the photograph and the Pop Up Dots I used that I didn't think I should count)...Yee haw! This layout is in response to the April Challenge #3 of the scrapbooking class, "Something from Almost Nothing". Believe it or not, there are already other classmates who have far exceeded that number and their layouts look fantastic!
1 Button, 1 strand Button Twine, 1 Safety Pin, 1 Straight Pin, 5 die cut flowers to make one flower, 2 patterned papers (these are from Webster's Pages...and man are they gorgeous!), 4 die cut butterflies, 4 pieces of Vintage Ephemera, 2 journaling cards (also from Webster's Pages), 1 Ribbon, 1 Photomat (cut from the patterned paper), 1 Corner Cut Out (from the patterned paper), 6 felt leaves and last but not least, the biggest stash buster... 51 pearls! Now that's a lotta stash baby!
I would like to note that I first started this layout in response to a prompt from my other class Sketchbook and was inspired by Stephanie Howell's layout and the banner she used in that prompt...but my layout ended up taking on a life of its' own and not turning out at all like the sketch! Go figure. Any who....
I am so pleased with both of these classes I am taking right now, it sure has got me moving on my layouts and oh am I ever loving my new printer I can't BELIEVE the huge difference in print quality and it was actually cheaper than the multi-function printer I was using! It really paid off to purchase a dedicated printer for my photographs... or at least a higher quality photo printer!
