Sketchy Saturday - 4/30/11


PRODUCTS USED: I used Echo Park's new line For The Record for ALL the papers and embellies. I added a little bling I had to the center of the flower stickers. I used Thickers for my title as always. For the stitching around the blackish circle, I used a plastic stencil and my white gel roller pen. I did a little stamping and fee-hand doodling to finish it off!

SO - show me what you can do with this sketch! You have ONE week from today to post your layout and link back to your blog. After that, you can post your layout in the 2011 Layouts tab at the top of the page.

Sketchy Saturday - 4/23/11

I used SEI's Chocolat paper pack for all the papers. I love this pack. Very girly! I used a plastic template for the dotted circle and some flowers and button stash. The title again is Thickers!

Sketchy Saturday - 4/16/11

I used up some stash on this one. It's really hard for me to use my stash lately. I can't seem to make anything coordinate very well. I used Thickers for the title. I used a plastic template for the stitched circle and my white gel pen. For the journaling, I printed it out on clear sticker paper and carefully adhered it to some cardstock. That's about it! No special tricks here! LOL

Give this sketch a try and post your layout below with a link back to your blog/site. Don't forget to leave a comment too. Thanks! Have fun!!

I finished another awesome sketch from Sketch Inspiration! Sketch #215
Head on over and see what you can do with it!!
I used the April 2011 Kit from The Scrap Room.
This layout used My Mind's Eye Stella n Rose, Gertie.
Everything you see came from this part of the kit except for the blingy flourish and the journaling strips, oh and the pix, of course!
I added my own little touches with the white dots on the scallops and sparkle on the big flower. I did a little inking on the title and the striped piece as well as the scallops and journaling strips.

Devotional 4/9/11

Ephesians 4:31-32

Get rid of all bitterness,
rage and anger,
brawling and slander,
along with every form of malice.
Be kind and compassionate
to one another,
forgiving each other,
just as Christ God forgave you.

Sketchy Saturday - 4/9/11

I used SEI Chocolat paper pad for all the papers I used. The "true" in my title are Thickers letters. Now, for the "love" in the title, Making Memories has these awesome shimmer chipboard words that are to die for! I found some blingy flowers to add and used my white Color Box liquid chalk ink pad with some border stamps from Hampton Art. I did a little doodling and there you go!

If you try this sketch out, please link your sketch below and leave me a comment. I would love to see your take on it! Good luck and have fun!

Three More Chicago Layouts DONE!!

Since the Lucky You online crop at Have Your Way With Paper has finished, activity has been a bit slow in our gallery, so Trisha dared us to create some layouts this weekend! I took her dare and showed her a thing or two.....or THREE! LOL
The title for this one is supposed to be "more than a TASTE of chicago". I'm really hoping that comes across. Anyway, I used Thickers for my title and one of Bo Bunny's new lines, Ad Lib. I love this line. It's so fun!! The collage is actually from Scrapbooks Etc. They have a bunch of collage templates. I just saved the template on my computer and then opened it up in PhotoShop Elements to add the pix.
This was a really fun layout to do! I used Sketch Inspiration's Sketch #212 and Little Yellow Bicycle's Twig line. Twig actually came from The Scrap Room's March 2011 Kit. Can I say that March is over and I still haven't used even HALF of the kit!!! I printed my journaling strips on regular white paper using MS Word. Then I just cut them in strips to fit the squares and attached them!
 This turned out soooo much better than I had anticipated! I used the Hopscotch line from The Scrap Room's March 2011 kit!! I still have tons of that left too! I used another collage template from Scrapbooks Etc. These are some very handy little things lately!!! The big heart on the bottom right was actually punched through in the center and on around. I used little bits and pieces of this line to fill in the holes. That took a little while to do, but well worth the work! I did a little doodling and inking and VOILA! DONE!

Sketchy Saturday - 4/2/11

PRODUCTS USED:  All papers came from Cloud 9 Design (Colorbok). I love these papers! The entire paper pack coordinates and makes it so easy to put a layout together!  The snowflake ribbon is actually one of the $1 spools from JoAnn's. A self adhesive ribbon, mind you! The puffy snowflake stickers are from Recollections. I think I actually found these on 50% sale the other day! A great buy!

Taking the yellow from the slide in the pictures, I decided to use it as my accent color. I didn't want there to be a ton of yellow, so I matted the pictures with a very thin line of yellow cardstock and just a little touch of it on the top and bottom of the striped paper. I used my Dymo for the date and journaling strips. After I faux stitched the journaling block, I pop dotted it to add just a little bit of dimension.

All in all, I would have to say that I really really like this layout!
