Sketch #144


For my example I used this super cute new "Magic" collection from Queen &Co. The colors are true disney colors. I added the background ledger paper and gold vellum and other gold accents from my stash. I was surprised how fun this sketch was, I hope you like it.


Sketch #143

Happy National Scrapbook Day! or International for lots of my scrappy friends! Are you scrapping this weekend? I have two layouts to share today to keep you inspired. I had fun with both of these, so I hope you do too.

For my example I used the beautiful J'Adore collection by Basic Grey. It could not be more perfect for my parfumerie photos.

Sketch #137

Sketch #136

 For my layout I used the Free Fallin Kit and Add on Kit from Scraptastic. I kept pretty close to the original sketch since I drew it, but I didn't have a big title and I wanted to use the little chipboard deer.

Sketch #135

This is a sketch that I created in November and just completely forgot to make an example. I will be posting several sketches today to sort of catch up. So sorry about letting it get so far behind. Vacation and holidays seem to put me a bit behind

Sketch #133

Today I am sharing a couple of my example layouts for my blog feature on Scraptastic Club Blog HERE. Visit the blog for details.

For my layouts I am using the October "Thriller" kit, add on kit, and stamp set.
First I will share the sketch that inspired the two layouts below. Sketch #133


 For my first example I have replaced the hexagon design area with a combination of my title letters to spell out "Halloween Ornaments" and some of the leftover alphas. This is a fun way to use up extra alphas that you have left in sets where you have used the most common letters. I especially love these glitter letters for a sparkly page element.



For my next example I rotated the sketch to the left, used 3 photos rather than the one, and for the long strip of paper I cut out the title "Halloween" about the same length and tucked it behind my photos. Also in the sketch there is a stitched line element that I have replaced with my journaling.
