Oooh, I've got a fun new card sketch challenge to share with you today. First off here is my card.

I really like how this little cluster of embellishment in the top left corner turned out. Thanks to my dearest Katie who lent me that 'thanks' stamp in a pinch...I think it worked perfectly!

 Well that's it for me for today. I look forward to seeing what you create with Leah's sketch. Simply upload your card here by December 4th for your chance to be featured on the SOUS blog.

My Creative Sketches: November Sketch

It's sketch reveal day at My Creative Sketches!!! Here is the fun new sketch for this months challenge...
I went totally outside my comfort zone for this sketch and decided to do something different.

I'm loving washi tapes and I've seen so many cool layouts with them lately. Instead of using using papers for this layout I just used a mish mash of a bunch of different tapes!
I still don't know if I'm 100% happy with my final product but I AM happy with the fact that I tried something new.

I must appologize for the quality of the photos, it was a really crummy day when I took them and even with editing this is the best I could get. The base cardstock is actually white although I'm not so sure it reads that way in the photos.
I would love it if you played along with our sketch this month. I challenge you to follow my lead and step out of your comfort zone. Try a technique you've been admiring! Link your layout here by December 14th for your chance to win an amazing prize and to be featured on the blog!
Have a great weekend!

Sketchabilities: Sketch 79

Yay! It's the new sketch challenge release day at Sketchabilities! And here is the goody we get to play with.
I just loooove this sketch. I am so happy with how my layout turned out! I'm not always happy with my final product, but this is just one of those times when it all came together just how I hoped it would :)
These photos of my daughter are some of my all time faves. I've scrapped them before, but I just love them so much I had to give it another go.

I used a bunch of different edge punches on strips of patterned paper and then crumpled them up so they would have dimension. Then I just layered them up and added some word stickers throughout.

All the papers and stickers are from Echo Park For the Record 2, and I added a few buttons from October Afternoon cause their buttons are my absolute FAVE!!!

I don't know how easy it is to tell in a photo but the pink strip around the yellow pp is pink decorative tape from My Minds Eye. I layered it around the patterned paper to make a frame.
Well, that is it for me today. I hope you will play along with our sketch challenge for your chance to win an awesome prize and to be featured on the Sketchabilities blog! Just link your layout up here by November 28th.
Have a great day

SOUS Sketch Challenge Nov 7-19

Happy Wednesday friends! It's card sketch reveal day at SOUS
Here is the card that I created for the sketch...
and here is the sketch it is based on. This fun inspiration was created by Sandi Clarkson.
Here are a few closeups...
I used this cute little sticker from the October Afternoon Cakewalk collection for the focal point in the center and layered some more little stickers from the same collection on top.
I put my stick pins on the right side of the card instead of the left like in the sketch.
For the ribbon going vertical around the card, I used some fun green bakers twine.
I'd love to see what you come up with using this sketch. Play along with our challenge and upload your card HERE before Nov 19th for your chance to be featured on the SOUS blog!
Have a great day!

Elle's Studio: November Gallery

The November DT Gallery is up at Elle's Studio and there is a whole bunch of fabulous inspiration for you to check out. You can find it all HERE.
My first two projects I have to share with you I created using the Spooky Tales collection.
I just LOVE fall! I love the warm, sunny days, crisp leaves, pumpkins, Halloween, and the pics on this layout just make me smile.
here are a few close ups of the details...

I clustered a bunch of pennants together to make this embellishment feature in the corner.

This large circle tag worked perfectly for this layout. It created a space to journal and it gave me my title.
Next is a layout of my son on his first Halloween. He was the cutest little dragon and definitely too cute to spook! I used the new Witch Hazel line from October Afternoon for the papers, and the background paper is from Woodland Park by OA.

and some close ups...

I clustered at little circle tag and a pennant together

Below the title I used this Lil Snippits tag to add the date and a quick note.
My last project is a fun little card and I used the digital Everyday Greetings to create the sentiment.

I just love these digital printables! You can print them any size you want to suit your project! The ones I used worked so well with the Cakewalk papers from October Afternoon.
Well that is all I have to share from Elle's Studio this month. Make sure you stop by the DT Gallery and see what my fellow team members have created.
Have a great day!
