Beach Memories – dt layout for Sketchabilities

For my example of sketch #100 at sketchabilities, I used the 4 Nautical themed wood cuts by Creative Embellishments and their laser cut Life Preserver chipboard piece. CE is also sponsoring this challenge and offering a $20 gc prize to one lucky winner! 😀 Here’s what I came up with:

beach memories

The compass, star and life preserver are actually navy blue, but look black in the pic. I was also inspired by the challenge at 7 Dots Studio to incorporate “memories” into the page and the challenge at scrapki-wyzwaniowo to use the colors green, yellow and blue.

One of a Kind – dt Layout for Let’s Capture These Sketches #125

This week at Let’s Capture These Sketches, we got to work with a wonderful sketch by JJ Sobey! For my take on it, I decided to rotate the sketch 90 degrees counter-clockwise.

Through the summer, we let the kids camp out in the living room on the hottest days since their bedroom turns into an oven. With so many kids spread out in the one room, it can be a challenge to find a spot where you won’t be disturbed. Matthew decided that the cabinet under the TV in the entertainment center (we’d removed the doors when M&M were toddlers) would be the perfect place to get cozy.

Here’s my take on Sketch #125:


Authentique Genuine papers
Authentique Genuine stickers
Elle’s Studio tags
