December sketch for Memorable Seasons

Two posts in one day! LOL! Sorry I have been so busy lately but I have a second post for you today. This is a nice 2 pager that I created just for Memorable Seasons for their December sketch challenge. If you would like to play along for a chance to win, visit Memorable Seasons HERE. Its a fantastic place to hang out and SHOP! I just love their deals on new products! Be sure to check it out.

Again... I just didn't have time to create a layout example so I am adding Joni's example here and then my good friend, Kristin, created a single page layout using just one side of the sketch so I am adding that as well. Don't forget to take apart two pagers when you want to do a single page and also - extend a sketch to a 2 pager when its only a single. :)

Happy Holidays Everyone! I don't know if any of you guys have the time to scrap but I wanted to give you a fun sketch, just in case. I didn't have time to play so Joni Parker was kind enough to create this fantastic example layout for me. She had the most perfect photos too. Thanks a million Joni!

Sketch #50! 12x12

I cant believe we are already up to the 50th 12x12 sketch! I have been so busy lately that I asked my friend, Laurie Zeller, if she would create an example for this sketch. I am so happy that she said yes, because this is one SWEET layout! :) She used 2 smaller photos for the photo on the left, isn't it yummy? I would love to go see that gingerbread house at Walt Disney World! Thanks Laurie!
Visit Laurie's Blog HERE for close ups.

Now look at this great page by Sabrina. She added 3 little extra photos because you know how it is with Christmas decorations - you need more space for photos! LOL! Visit Sabrina's blog HERE for details and tips.

Here is another great page from Joni Parker. LOVE the title. Visit Joni's blog for close ups of all of her awesome pages.

And a very festive holiday page from Heather! Thank you, Heather! :) I wish my boys were still little and cute like that.

Layout Examples!

Hey, I know you guys check in to see the newest sketches, but have you taken time to go back thru the older sketches recently to see all of the layout examples that people have been sending in? WOW! If you haven't, you will love all of the different styles and interpretations. When time permits, I add photos, but sometimes I just add the link so everyone can find your page. Do you turn the sketches or flip them? do you use butterflies where there are circles? I would love to see more examples.

Leave a comment with a link to your blog or gallery where your page is hosted, and I will add your pages too.

Sketch #48 12x12"

This is another really fast page that will show off three large 4x6" photos.

For my example I used My Minds Eye papers and 3 photos of my sleepy kitty, Noel. :)

Rachel just started doing the sketches here at SketchSavvy and she shared this great page along with a very cute page for Sketch #18. Visit Rachel's blog HERE Thanks for playing, Rachel!

Another totally fun page from Joni Parker today. I just love the way these colors pop with the black background, but the sub is my favorite part! Visit Joni's blog HERE.

Sketch #47

For my example I used Basic Grey Jovial collection and I flipped the sketch. This is a perfect sketch to use with scraps or when you just want to use alot of great patterned paper!

I asked my good friend Kristin Fougeron to try out this sketch too and I love her take using Basic Grey's Pyrus Collection.

This is just the most adorable page! Just look at Gus Gus! My friend Jeanne has the most beautiful kitty helper and I just love the embellishements she added to her version of this sketch. Jeanne also has fantastic free cut files on her blog. Visit Jeanne's blog HERE.

Ok I normally don't add this many examples, but this sketch is just so fun and every example is turning out so great! Joni Parker sent us this one using Basic Grey Oliver and such a sweet photo. Visit Joni's blog HERE

Here is another beautiful layout and again, the completely different papers just change the page so much. Thank you to Elke for this very sweet page. Visit Elke's blog here to see close ups.

Sketch #46 and Hibiscus cut file

This is one of my favorite flowers. Just the one flower, the center and the leaf, but it adds that tropical touch. If you don't have a die cutting machine that will work, just print the shape on the back of your paper and cut by hand. As always the size of the shapes are not the size used for the layout - Choose your own size to suit your layout.

***Be sure to mention SketchSavvy with a link when you use this file. As always, please leave a comment and let me know what you think of the sketch and cut file. Have Fun!

***CLICK HERE for the Hibiscus SCAL2 File***

As promised, here is my layout example for this sketch. I really love these flowers because they make fantastic layered flowers without any effort. For close ups and details visit my blog HERE.

Look at this beautiful layout using the light blues of the Magic Kingdom castle. Thank you to Michelle for this great sketch example. Visit Michelle's blog HERE.

Ok I have to admit that one of the reasons I love this sketch is that you get to see a bunch of patterned papers. LOL! Check this one out! Merrick sent me this page and I am in love with those WRMK papers! Visit Merrick's blog HERE.

This is a great boy page from Joni Parker. The papers are busy but totally work when used with this sketch because there is a bit of seperation. Great job, Joni! Visit Joni's Blog HERE

Here is another page from Elke and the fall colors are so beautiful. Visit Elke's Blog here for close ups.

Jeanne sent me this adorable little boy page and I just love the way she punched the bottoms of the strips of paper. Thanks Jeanne!!!!

I know I have posted alot of examples for this one but you just have to see this one from Angela. These photos are amazing on their own, but the papers are perfect. Visit Angela's blog here

2 page Sketch #10

Happy October! You might notice that I was feeling in a bit of a halloween mood when doing this sketch. The cut file is for a bracket and it's even a bit gothic.
***Be sure to mention SketchSavvy with a link when you use this file. As always, please leave a comment and let me know what you think of the sketch and cut file. Have Fun!
