Eager – Layout for Creative Scrappers sketch #191

I loved working with the fun sketch #191 by Nicole Nowosad for Creative Scrappers. For my take on it, I stuck pretty close to the sketch. The journaling reads, “Eager to walk run and always the daredevil. You didn’t just cruise at 6 months, you ran as long as you had something to holdonto…even if it was the back of the couch as you darted across the cushions. 1/04/2011.” Here’s what I came up with:


Basic Grey Green at Heart pp
Basic Grey Green at Heart alphas
Basic Grey Green at Heart sticker
Basic Grey Sugar Rush brads
Basic Grey Bling it on Rub-on
Prima flowers
white pen


Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner
Helmar Premium Craft Glue

The fab sketch #191:



Sweet Baby Boy – Layout for Kaisercraft’s January Sketch #2

Every Saturday, Kaisercraft posts a sketch for their monthly challenge, so depending on the month, there are 4 or 5 sketches and they are each due on the last day of the month. You can choose to complete 1 or all of them (one entry per sketch) and all you need to do to enter is make sure your project contains at least 70% Kaisercraft products and you upload your image to a gallery, photobucket, blog post etc. with the sketch title/name in the your title, then post the link to your project in the comments on the appropriate sketch post on their blog. The first place winner is awarded one of Kaisercrafts new collections, with an approximate $50 retail value and the second place winner receives a Kaisercraft scrap pack which includes new products and has an approximate $30 retail value!!!

This month, I decided to go with the gorgeous sketch #2 using a photo of Madison holding Christian when he was 5 months old. I made him the subject of the layout since he’s looking at the camera, but she’s looking at her baby brother. 😀 This is my take on the fabulous Kaisercraft sketch:


Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings pp
Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings rubons
Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings diecuts
Distress Ink
Shimmerz paints
Harmonie acrylic scalloped circle
Liquid Pearls
Prima bling
Webster’s Pages Storyteller Alphas


Helmar Acrylic Sealer
Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner
Helmar Premium Craft Glue
Helmar Zap Dots (foam dots)

Genuine Beauty – dt layout for LCTS sketch #117

This week at Let’s Capture These Sketches, we got to work with JJ’s first sketch for the site and I had a lot of fun with it! I used Pink Paislee’s Vintage Vogue papers and let Madison pick out the bg paper she wanted. 😀 The pp, chipboard stickers, diecuts, spool tops are all from the Vintage Vogue collection. The only item I added was a few bits of twine from the Twinery. Here’s my example for the sketch:

This is the fantastic sketch JJ came up with for this week’s challenge (sketch #117):


Beautiful – Layout using Glitz for Creative Scrappers Sketch #190

I love when things come together so perfectly. I’ve been loving the Creative Scrappers sketches lately. They’re so hard to resist! So when I saw sketch #190 earlier this month, I knew that once I got my dt work done for the month, I’d want to play along with this one too. 😀

I’d also seen that Glitz has started their challenges up again. I’ve been stalking their blog since summer hoping they would pick that back up since I’d never played along before and had received my first set of Glitz products right after their last challenge had ended. D’oh! lol I’m super excited that they’ve started hosting challenges again!

This month’s Glitz challenge features an inspiration photo and combining it with the CS sketch came naturally. Though the Glitz photo features a wintery scene, I was actually inspired by the circular mirror, soft textures, cushion of white and framing. I love how the greenery in the photo envelopes the circle, but leaves it some breathing room. These features were so easily replicated using the CS 190 sketch! Here’s what I came up with:

Here’s the fabulous Glitz inspiration image:

And the gorgeous CS sketch #190:

I used Glitz Beautiful Dreamer papers, Peek-a-Boo and Whatnots. Prima flowers and butterfly, ZVA Creative bling, ribbon and lace from my stash.

The STTG store has Beautiful Dreamer papers, paper layers, albums and stickers still in stock and 2 of the Glitz new releases (French Kiss and Pretty in Pink) are in as well! So be sure to stop by and check them out!
