april-15th-layout

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

sweet-memories

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.

Can you see me?

Good morning everyone! Today I have the newest sketch to share with you from Sketch N Scrap, designed by Lisa Hidy:

Its so cute isn’t it?

And here is my take on it:

Can you see Mr. Jeffrey? He’s smack dab in the middle of both of those photos. He was being sooo cute that day (well, he’s cute everyday!). Other than the mini alphas (My Little Shoebox), everything is Doodlebug “Puppy Love” collection.

Check out the rest of the Sketch N Scrap DT work on this fabulous sketch. Make sure you come and play – layouts due April 30th!

The Perfect Gift

Good morning everyone!! I have the 2nd layout sketch for March from Heather Hall to share with you:

march-15th-layout

And here is my take on it:

the-perfect-gift

I used Bo Bunny “Liberty” collection (yes, another oldie but goodie).

Journaling reads: Jennifer made Rob this NAVY blanket for Christmas, 2011. You can tell how much he appreciated it!

You can do anything…

Good morning everyone! I can’t believe its March 1st! Boy is time flying by fast or what!

Anyways, I have a wonderful sketch to share with you from Sketch N Scrap, designed by Lisa Hidy:

march-1st-layout

It has room for FIVE pics! And surprisingly…that’s how many I used on my layout!

you-can-do-anything

I moved things around a bit. I started with the hexagon pattern paper and fussy cut the edge. I used black cardstock for my base and photo mats to make everything POP! The borders, the title and the washi tape is from the same collection as the hexagon pattern paper – RECOLLECTION “Color Splash”.

The die cuts are from 2 cartridges. I used “Paper Doll Dress Up” for the palm tree; and “Cricut Font & Basic Shapes” for the little flowers. These are the 2 cartridges I pulled for my March Cricut challenge to myself.

I chose to use flowers and the palm tree because not only do they go with the collection/photos, but that is what I’m challenging everyone to use at ACOT for my March Die Cut Challenge.

Hope you can join me at both ACOT and Sketch N Scrap to play along! You have until March 31st for all entries!

Crafting is the BEST Medicine!

Good morning everyone! Today I will be sharing with you the newest card sketch by Lisa Hidy at Sketch N Scrap.

february-20th-card

It has so many possibilities! And here’s my take on it:

crafting-is-the-best-medicine

I used Bo Bunny “Pincushion” collection and moved the hearts over to the other corner. I turned the longer, skinnier piece into a banner and because the banner has “faux stitching” on it, I did the same around the light black cardstock.

Hope you can play along with us over at Sketch N Scrap! You have until the end of the month to submit your card. Make sure you check out the rest of the DT’s awesome work.

Happy Birthday

Good morning everyone! Today I have a wonderful and fun card sketch designed by the very talented Heather Hall at Sketch N Scrap!

february-5th-card

How fun are those tags, huh?

And here is my take on it:

happy-birthday

I’ve had all of these items in my stash for at least a few years so it was great to use them! The “Party Animal” sticker is from Karen Foster and that is what I started with while making this card. I then pulled the colors from that sticker – orange, purple, green and white – to use for tags and layering. The twine is from Doodlebug and the small “Happy Birthday” sentiment is from Carta Bella.

TFL and make sure you stop by the Sketch N Scrap blog to check out the rest of the amazing cards created by the DT. Hope you can play along with us this month!

Christmas Traditions

Good morning everyone! Today I have a brand new sketch to share with by Lisa Hidy

february-1st-layout

Isn’t it cute? I Love the multi-photo placement with all the hearts!

And here is my take on it:

christmas-traditions

I chose stars to represent “cutting out cookies”. I used my CCR Basics and my CCR software to make some of the “frames” by layering a smaller star inside the larger ones. I also used my CCR Basics to cut out my title.

dscn6967

I used Basic Grey “25th & Pine” papers/stickers with Bazzill cardstock and American Crafts Zazz! glitter glue in gold and crimson.

You can also head over to A Cherry On Top to check out my February Die Cut Challenge. My challenge to you is to use frames on your page. But not just any frames. No – not the common square/rectangle frames. I want you to make circles, hearts, stars – whatever you can come up with.

Hope you can come join us at both ACOT and Sketch N Scrap! Make sure you also check out the rest of the DT’s work with this fabulous sketch!

Make a Wish

Good morning everyone! Today I have a card sketch to share with you, designed by Lisa Hidy at Sketch N Scrap!

january-20th-card

Isn’t it cute? I love this sketch and see using it for more cards to come!

And here is my take on it:

make-a-wish

I have a bunch of leftover MME die cuts from both boy and girl birthday kits from years ago. I saw this “make a wish” and I had to use it! I popped it up with foam adhesive and added Freckled Fawn enamel dots, moving them up a bit higher than what the sketch shows.
