My crafty friend, Ashley Harris, designed a set of stamps for Avocado Arts last spring. She was kind enough to send me a set to play around with. I absolutely love her stamps–they’re super useful and versatile. I created this layout using them.

I filled my page background with diagonal washi tape strips and then stamped directly onto the washi tape using StazOn black permanent ink.

I love the arrows, chevrons, and ledger lines in this set–right up my alley!

This layout also happens to be one that I created based on a sketch and repetition challenge for my upcoming class, Super Stashbusters. Here’s the sketch that the layout is based on.

This challenge also comes with a video, studio cutting files, and a digital layered template for digital scrapbookers. Plus, you’ll get to see a guest designer’s take on the same challenge and sketch.

What is your biggest scrapbooking nemesis? Creative Block, Captain Indecision, The Hoarder? Leave a comment on this post telling me what your biggest challenge is for a chance to win a FREE SEAT in Super Stashbusters! I’ll announce the winner on Friday morning. Please check back to see if you won, and good luck!

  1. I don't know what my creative block is, but I am for sure SO inspired by your work, and I loved the first Stashbuster SO much, thanks for inspiring us!

  2. I am a hoarder, afraid I will use so,etching up I will want for another layout later- but really with 4 kids time and energy are my biggest obstacles lol. I am really trying harder to schedule scrap time. I can't wait for your class!

  3. I'm a Hoarder…enough so that I could open a store. I buy stuff, I have friends who bring me stuff, I have friends of friends bringing me stuff! I'm constantly cleaning off my desk, and when I finish I have no time to scrap. Frustrating. I spend more time cataloging than creating.

  4. Captain Indecision keeps me from doing as much as I would like. I think way too much about how others will like the page and change my mind too many times. Thanks for a chance to win a seat!

  5. I believe I may be a hoarder, but after taking the first Stash Busters class and also taking this one, I hope that will change. Thanks,

  6. I'd have to say I fall into the hoarder category here. I can make decisions pretty quickly but digging through my stash to find the perfect journaling card can take a while! I also am crammed into a tiny little office with my husband, his computer and our family records/filing cabinet so space to spread out is an issue. I'd love a seat in your class. I took your class last year and loved it! Thanks for the chance to take this one too!! I need all the help I can get. 🙂

  7. Mine is Creative Block and then Indecision. Looking at my room of supplies, you may think hoarder, but I actually have no problem any more pulling out something and using it. I just can't throw away the left overs!

  8. I am always purging supplies. Some are easy others have potential and even when I know i won't use it, I still am attached to the potential (ex: I don't do vintage very often. So why keep vintage style ribbon? But it's pretty and it has potential.) Thanks for the chance to win.

  9. My biggest roadblock is sorting and culling photos. Then I get to the indecision phase.

  10. I for sure am stuck somewhere between Captain Indecision and Hoarder. I have the desire but I just don't ever seem to get those pages done. Looking forward to the class for some inspired help!

  11. I struggle with my photo organizing/printing system and indecision. I think too much about the perfect products, layout, photos and stories and get paralyzed. Love the main goal of stashbuster class!!!!

  12. I have a really hard time making decisions and getting going. I really want to scrapbook without scraplifting or using a sketch but I can't seem to do it!

  13. With no children at home and the grandchildren adults as well I have a hard time finding enough photos to take to scrapbook.

  14. My biggest block is the pile of stuff on my desk and the number of items on my to-do list that have to be finished before I scrap. Thanks for the chance to win!

  15. Definitely a Hoarder and therefore too much to go through to make up my mind which way to go. Get great results but takes way too much time.Granddaughter and I are working together this week scrapping and having loads of fun trying to thin the herd. She is 13 and awesomely ceative. Good inspiration, too.

  16. I guess I'm a hoarder and spend a lot of time looking through what I have. Love your page and how you used the washi tape.

  17. I would have to say it is too much to do and not enough time. I feel like whenever I try to scrapbook, I am constantly interrupted by children. This makes it more stress than it is worth.

  18. I think motivation is my biggest obstacle – that's why the first Stashbusting class was so great for me. It gave me a place to start and motivation to finish. I absolutely loved it and would love to win a spot in this year's class!

  19. My biggest problem is not being organized and having so much stuff, I can't remember where it is and/or I don't remember what I have.

  20. My biggest problem is that I am a "It's beautiful, new and I gotta-have-it" kind of girl. So I buy it and then I don't know what to use it for.

  21. I'm in the hoarder group. I have tons of paper and I am trying to use it. I was trying to calculate how many layouts it would take to make a dent in my supply but that's too scary.

  22. Definitely a hoarder. I have way more stuff than I need. That's why I'm looking forward to using some of it up doing your classes.:)

  23. I am usually harassed by ‘The Hoarder’ and ‘Captain Indecision’ is not far behind but currently that nasty ‘Creative Block’ has decided to move in! So I would love to win a place at the Super Stashbusters. Thanks for the chance to win 🙂

  24. I am most definitely the paper HOARDER. I collect, collect, collect…just in case I might need it, but it's so pretty I don't want to use it!

  25. Oh dear….I am a hoarder. I've been sorting and purging and trying to create some space….and I keep finding stuff still in bags from the store!

  26. My biggest block is design – I love how you provide sketches to start us on the design of the page!

  27. Indecision is the biggest cause for slow scrapping. Your challenges really help because they narrow the choices. Really hope to take this class!

  28. I'll put my hand up to be Miss Collector. I love buying & organising & looking at all my supplies but find it hard to use all the pretty stuff.
