Sketch Reveal!

It's that time again...time for another great sketch to be revealed over at Stuck?! Sketches. I know that I always say that I love them, and this month is no exception. If you haven't ever used a sketch, what are you waiting for?! Seriously, though...give it a try! Using sketches is most helpful for me when I have lost my mojo. Having decisions made for me is super helpful, and I can always tweak the sketch to fit my photos.

The sketch calls for a large heart on the background of the page. Never feel like you need to incorporate all of the elements on the sketch. I love hearts on my pages, and use them frequently. I decided to challenge myself though to use something different. I decided on a shamrock so that I could scrap these photos.

I used various Felicity Jane papers from my stash, the tag is American Crafts, the word stickers are Dear Lizzy, and I'm not sure who makes the puffy stickers. The white alphas are from Freckled Fawn and the black Thickers are the Doll font. I punched gold hearts out of gold washi that has been in my stash for ages and it was purchased from JoAnn's.

The layout really needed the pops of black with the alphas and the stitching. I debated on hand versus machine, and ultimately decided on the machine since it would be easier to stitch along the border.

 Be sure and stop by the Stuck?! Sketches blog to see what the other design team members created. If you decide to play along with us, be sure and link your layout up to the blog for a chance to win a prize from one of our sponsors!
