Sketch N Scrap #135

Hey crafty friends!!
Happy Tuesday!!
Today I am back with another sketch reveal from Sketch N Scrap.
Just in case you don't already know, Sketch N Scrap is a sketch challenge blog that offers Layout and Card sketches each month! Layout sketches are posted on the 1st and 15th of each month and card sketches are posted on the 5th and 20th of each month. 

Here is a look at the 2nd layout sketch for August provided to us by Heather, 
Layout Sketch #135:

Fabulous sketch right?? Here is the layout I created based on the above sketch:


At first I wasn't quite sure which photos I was going to use for the sketch and then when I saw these photos on my daughter's FB, I knew! She gave me the go ahead so I snagged them up lol! There isn't a lot of colors in the photos so I pretty much had my pic of papers in my stash. I really wanted to focus on them though. He is a yellow lab with green eyes and a brown nose and she is a girly girl. When I came across this floral paper, it was perfect! It incorporated the yellow, green and brown as well as the girly. Does that make sense or am I just crazy? lol The paper was from a stack so all the other papers coordinated perfectly! I used punches for the photo corner pieces, flowers and leaves. The scallop came from the Cricut as well as the font used for my title. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and take a look at my latest creation!
I appreciate it so much!
Don't forget to swing by the Sketch N Scrap blog and take a look at what my talented DT sisters made with the sketch. I hope you decide to play along, I would love to see what you create!

Hang In There

Happy happy Saturday!!
I hope you are having a fun evening! 
I'm posting a little later than normal but I created a card earlier today and just had to share it tonight :)

I saw this sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch
and thought it would be fun to play along. Here is a look at the sketch:


Fun right? Here is a look at the card that I created based on the above sketch:


I stamped my sloth and colored him in with my Copic markers. I used a circle die to cut him out and then another circle die to create the little black border around him. I adhered him onto a piece of kraft cardstock, added a fun green border and popped the panel up with some foam tape onto my card base. I heat embossed my greeting with some white embossing powder and added a few enamel dots. I finished my card with some doodles around the edge of my popped up panel. I've had this sloth stamp for a little while now and have never used it until this card. Yay!!

I will also be entering my card into the following challenges:

Hot or Cold

Hey crafty friends!
I hope you are having a terrific Thursday!
Today I wanted to pop in really quick and share a card that I made for the current challenge over at


Here is a look at the card that I created based on the sketch:


I created my A2 card base from some white cardstock and then layered some fun, bright papers from Doodlebug Designs on top. I stamped my greeting using a stamp from Jaded Blossom and added a fun little coffee, also from Jaded Blossom. I added some doodling with my white gel pen. Not sure why the white pen ink dried pinkish on the dark pink/red paper though 😐 I finished off my card with some white Nuvo drops. 

Besides the sketch challenge mentioned above, I will also be entering my card into the following challenges:

I'm Stuck On You

Hello crafty friends!!
I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!
 Today I am back with another project that showcases some of those awesome 


For my card today, I'm using some older products as well as a new product that will be making its debut in the Pink and Main Store tomorrow.


I love making shaped cards so I pulled out my trusty Scallop Hexagons Dies and created my card base. I used a hexagon from the Nested Hexagons dies and cut out my green layer from the Shades of Spring 6x6 Paper Pad and layered that on top. Next I cut out a circle from some white cardstock using the Stitched Circle Dies and stamped that sweet little cactus from the *new*Sticky Note stamp set. I colored him in with my Copics and popped up that piece with some foam tape. I stamped my greeting, also from the Sticky Note set, and flagged the ends and matted it onto some black cardstock and added that to the top of my card with more foam tape. I finished off this cute little card with a bit of doodling for a little more added interest.

Sketch N Scrap Card Sketch #103

Hey crafty friends!!
Happy Saturday!!
Today starts a new card sketch challenge over at 
Here is a look at the first card sketch for August courtesy of Heather:


and here is my take on the above sketch:


I created my A2 card base from some Kraft cardstock and I doodled all around the card with a brown pen. I cut up some papers (mostly scraps) from an older My Mind's Eye paper pad and layered them onto my card base. I added that sweet little doggy and dog house onto a white circle and added my greeting and my card was done! I love easy cards and using a sketch just takes a lot of the guess work out for me, gotta love that!
