I'm back with another Scrap Recipe challenge for you this beautiful Monday. :)
I have my beautiful and talented fellow DT member, Suz joining me today. I absolutely adore that paper-pieced mug on her layout and that delightful story that comes with it. Suz's layout reminds me of my dad. He loves A&W rootbeer!

"I was so happy to have a chance to support Sasha and to play along with her fun Scrap Recipe Challenge for today! I set straight to work creating a layout that revolved around a little ole A&W root beer mini mug that I received from my parents as a child. I decided to create part of my title work by cutting up the background alphabet stamp from the Public Library collection and then I used a Silhouette mug cut file to add a little extra love and repetition of design to my layout. I used four patterns from the Saturday Mornings Journal Cards 12 x 12 patterned paper to back up the cut file mug design. Then I machine stitched around the die cut for a little added texture and dimension. A few border stickers and chipboard elements and "Good Stuff" starburst circle stamping on some wood grain tape to add a bit more love to my design.Then I finished my layout by typing my journaling onto a journal card with my vintage typewriter. Super fun and simple to create along with Sasha's recipe as a guide! Thank you for the inspiration challenge Sasha!! :)"
Here's my take on the recipe :
Great minds think alike, I must say! I too, used the same Saturday Mornings Journal Cards patterned paper for my layout, just like Suz. I cut the title from 4 'journaling cards' and make it the focal point of my layout. Just look at those beautiful colors!
I typed my journaling with my manual vintage typewriter, again, just like Suz! LOL. I swear we didn't plan this, but I totally high-fived Suz in my mind when I saw her layout. :D I stamped the cute bird and scissors with perforated line with black ink to kinda balance up all the sweet colors in this layout and added some pink pop drops, a pink heart chipboard and a pink brad.
I machine-stitched all around the layout, part of my title and my journaling several times, then hand-stitched some pink straight stitches onto the letter H E R and O :) I really, and I mean really love how this layout turned out.
Have fun and happy scrapping!
