Stuck?! Sketches July 15th Reveal

There's a new challenge over at Stuck?! Sketches today and as always it is a great one! 

I stayed pretty true to the sketch for my layout.

I pulled out a Felicity Jane kit for this layout. This photo is of my mom when she was stung by a bumblebee on her nose. I have been trying to get more stories told on my pages, and I have had this photo of her on my desk for a while. I did scan this first and then print off another photo. The original is still safe, and is backed up on the computer.

I lightly sketched pencil lines to give the butterflies a flight path. After I poked the holes in the paper, I erased the lines and then did a simple back stitch with two strands of white embroidery thread.

Most of the supplies used on the layout are from Felicity Jane, with the exception of the butterflies, the stickers, and the gold glitter hearts.

Be sure to play along with this sketch and have a chance of winning a prize from one of our sponsors. 

If you'd like to take a peek at my process, here's the link! Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope that you have a wonderful day!

Champs Stuck?! Sketches

Today I am sharing another great sketch from Stuck?! Sketches. Once again, Laura has created a wonderful and versatile sketch. If you haven't played along yet, what are you waiting for?! 

I did tweak the sketch just a bit to make it work for my photo that I wanted to scrap. Instead of two photos, I used one 4x6 photo. All of the papers and embellishments are from Cocoa Vanilla's new line You Rock. 

My daughter's travel team had just won their first championship of the season, with the winning game starting after 9:00 p.m. It was a long night, the girls played hard, and were ecstatic with their win. I have struggled with her team colors, but since they were wearing their black uniform, I was able to bring in different shades of blue for a nice pop of color.

The phrase stickers in this collection are so fun! Amaze-balls was perfect for this page in more ways than one :)

I created the title in my silhouette software using the font Blackout Sunrise. I welded it together so that I could back it with several different pattered papers from the collection. 

We'd love for you to play along with this sketch! Be sure and link your project up on the blog for a chance to win a prize from one of our fabulous sponsors.

If you'd like to take a closer peek at my process, here's a link to the video. Thanks so much and have a great day!
