Sweet Memories

Good morning everyone! Today, I have the 2nd layout sketch for April by Heather Hall for Sketch N Scrap:


Its a super fun sketch! And here’s my take on it:


They are photos of Miss Penny watching/playing with Li’l Jackson. I chose to use a mix of PhotoPlay’s “Cooper & Friends” and “Roxie & Friends” to complete my layout. The mini alphas are by Basic Grey.

Make sure you stop by the Sketch N Scrap blog to check out the rest of the DT’s fabulous work with this sketch. You have until the end of the month to play along!

Also, don’t forget — Sketch N Scrap is turning 5 years old on May 1st and to celebrate, we’re throwing a month-long party! Brand new EXCLUSIVE sketches, a month long online crop, on top of our regular 2 cards/2 layouts during the month!

TFL! 🙂

A dog and her kitty

Hi everyone!! I have a super cute layout to show you, featuring li’l Jackson and Miss Penny


Its based on the newest sketch by Let’s Get Sketchy


I used PhotoPlay’s newest papers/die cuts, with enamel dots by Freckled Fawn. The see-thru arrows are by Studio Calico and mini alphas/numbers are Basic Grey.

This layout is also being submitted to ACOT’s Supply List Challenge w/ a Twist. Out of 10 items, we have to use at least 5 of them. Mine are pp, cardstock, arrows, enamel dots, die cuts and numbers. The “twist” is to either use another item from her LIST OR choose one of your own, that you HOARD. I hoard ALOT…but…I needed a title and what best to use are mini alphas. I bought them in each and every color – Basic Grey, Cosmo Cricket, My Little Shoebox..I went nuts when they were popular. I’m sure they still are. So that was my 6th item.

Give Thanks….

Good morning everyone! In honor of WCMD, Sketch N Scrap is having Flashback Friday’s! And today, the guest designer is Hillary Harris. Here is today’s sketch #3:


And here is my take on it:


I went with some old, OLD, bo bunny chipboard frames, paired with the NEW PhotoPlay “Falling Leaves” collection.

The frames were inspired by ACOT’s Card Challenge – use a frame and at least pumpkin.

Let There Be Pumpkin Spice

Good morning everyone! Sketch N Scrap has a brand new card sketch, designed by the very talented Heather Hall.


And here is my take on it:


Instead of Halloween, I made a “fall” card, using pumpkins/leaves and papers all by PhotoPlay (Falling Leaves collection).

I added the banner to go with the ACOT Mood Board Challenge.

Hope you check out the rest of the Sketch N Scrap DT’s fabulous creations and play along!

Good morning everyone! Today I have a card sketch designed by the very talented Mandy Reedyk!


And here is what I came up with:


I used PhotoPlays “Falling Leaves” collection. I LOVE the rich colors of yellows, browns, reds and oranges. The die cut embossed leaves are from SEI and enamel dots are by Freckled Fawn.

I’m submitting this card for ACOT’s September Card Challenge (its due tomorrow!). I had to use the colors I mentioned above as well as at least one distressed leaf WITH one other distressed method of my choice. The embossed leaves were perfect and I just had to INK everything!

Make sure you stop by the Sketch N Scrap blog and check out the rest of the DT’s creations. Hope you can play along with us!

Twistback Thursday with Sketch n Scrap

Hello all! Today is the 2nd Thursday of October and that means TWISTBACK! We are using sketch #45 by Kelly Holifield and we must use a FALL theme. Now, with me living in south Texas, we really don’t have a “fall” per-say, but my family is all about spending time with each other on Thanksgiving. And luckily, last Thanksgiving, was a bit on the chilly side, so we built a fire. And of course, took pictures. 🙂

Oct 8th Layout

I chose to use the BRAND NEW company PhotoPlay’s “Autumn Day” collection. Usually I don’t buy brand new stuff from brand new companies, but I just love this collection! Just look at those colors. And those papers. I added mist from Tattered Angels and Inkadinkao, along with enamel dots from Freckled Fawn and Doodlebug.

And here’s the sketch:

October 8th Sketch

As you can see, I opted to use one less photo. I had more photos, but they really didn’t look right with the other three. I still think the layout works.

Make sure you stop by at Sketch-N-Scrap to join in on the fun!

TFL! 🙂
