It's Time for Another Sketch

It's time for another sketch to be revealed by Stuck?! Sketches and as usual I love it! I stayed pretty close to the sketch for this layout and definitely will be using this sketch again for future pages. 

For this layout my inspiration was Maggie Holmes Gather collection. I know that she will be releasing a new collection soon, so it is easier for me to justify buying more of her products when I am using them! To change things up a bit, I chose the black and white paper and embellishments as my jumping off point, and then added pops of aqua and pink to the page. 

The layered heart die cut in this cluster is one of my favorites in the collection. The hearts are cut out and it gives the die cut dimension without adding bulk. 

I could use a few more of these chipboard flowers. I have said it before and I will say it again...Crate paper needs to release a chipboard set that is all roses. I know that I can't be the only one that loves them and needs more in my stash!

We'd love for you to play along with us this month. If you do, be sure and link your layout to the blog and you will have a chance of winning a prize from one of our sponsors. 

I have a process video if you'd like to take a closer look at how this page came together. Have a great day!

June 1st Reveal

My goodness it is hard to believe that it is June 1st! This year is flying by so quickly. Today I will be sharing another fabulous sketch that Laura created over at Stuck?! Sketches. The sketch calls for three photos, but can easily be adapted. I chose one 4x6 photo, and then used a frame to house my embellishment cluster.

I've been wanting to use Paige Evan's new collection since there are several book elements in the die cuts and chipboard. I'm a big reader and luckily both kids love to read as well. My daughter went through a phase where she read every single fairy book that she could get her hands on, and to this day we still have them. I just can't bear to part with them just yet.

Everything is from Paige Evan's new line Oh My Heart with the exception of the pink glitter alphas (old Dear Lizzy Thickers), the green tile stickers (Webster's Pages), and the enamel dots. The doilies are Cambridge lace doilies and they can be found on Amazon and eBay.

 It took me quite a long time to fussy cut these flowers. My wrist is healing but there are certain things that tend to aggravate it and fussy cutting is one of them. I really wanted to add some stitching to the flowers but I knew that when I created this layout that I would not be able to do so and finish it it time. I *might* go back and add the stitching once my wrist is healed.

We would love for you to play along with us this month! Be sure and link your layout up to the blog and you'll have a chance at winning a prize from one of out sponsors.

I'm a bit behind this week...I will update the blog once I upload my process video :)
