Little Dear layout – Crate Paper and Sketchy Thursdays

So far, this month has been filled with so many fab challenges that combining a few of them only comes naturally! This next project was particularly fun due to Sketchy Thursdays’ current sponsor for their 8.11 sketch. Paper Secrets is offering a $25 Gift Card to their store, so of course I had to play along! I decided to go with Crate Paper for the layout and they have a color challenge currently posted on their blog. The 3 color pallete of sand, khaki and denim blue was a bit challanging for me with the dual neutral and though blue is my fave color, the photo was so navy blue heavy, I didn’t want to add to much of it to my lo. However, we were able to add another neutral to the pallete (black, white or Kraft) which really helped me create a better blance in my project. Here’s what I came up with:


Crate Paper Neighborhood pp
Crate Paper Toy Box pp
CP Neighborhood diecut
CP Neighborhood diecut sticker
CP Toy Box diecut stickers
CP Toy Box alpha stickers
Making Memories brads
paper doily
Folk Art acrylic paint
DMC embroidery floss


Helmar adhesive runner


We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy

Here’s Sketchy Thursdays’ wonderful 8.11 sketch:
