Simple Sketches #18 is up!


The reveal for Simple Sketches #18 is up on the blog today! It's a great 4-picture sketch using a grid design. 

I followed the basic design of the sketch but I added a fifth photo to my layout. I didn't tilt the whole grid; instead I just tilted the first and last pictures to emphasize those two. I used some Basic Grey papers again (my go-to manufacturer!). The background paper is "Indian Summer", the two other papers are from the "Soleil" collection, as are the top title alphas and the arrow stickers. The cute little deer is from "Mint Julep". The number stickers on the photos are from various old collections. I love how the different collections coordinate! I used a Unity stamp for the "Life" bingo card and a Martha Stewart punch for the yellow paper.

This is a page about my (one and only) niece who turned 20 this month... (really!?? when did this happen!) The title means "Sophie in 5 Acts".

Well, this is it for now. Go check out what the rest of the team did here and link up yours if you give this sketch a go! We'd love to see!

Enjoy the rest of the Holiday season! Hope you find some time to scrap!


Simple Sketches #16!


Today's the reveal of sketch #16 at Simple Sketches! Here's the sketch:

Here's what I did with it. The papers are from Basic Grey (Urban Prairie). I used a stencil with Pan Pastels to make the colored flowers on the background. I stamped my title with a new hexagon alphabet stamp and popped a few letters with foam squares. I added a few embellies and traced around the papers with a black pen. The title means "Unavoidable", which is what windmills are in the Netherlands. You just can't go there without taking pictures of them!

Go check out everybody's work here and play along too!

Have a scrappy weekend!


Simple Sketches 14... a week late!

Ooops! I forgot to post last week's sketch at Simple Sketches! Here it is...

And here's my version. I used some My Mind's Eye papers and did some fussy cutting. I used only a cluster of embellies as I felt that the paper itself was already "decorated"! The title means: "Sleeping in a Real Castle". During our trip to the Netherlands last summer, we found a last minute internet deal to spend the night in this pretty little castle! It was fun!

This week's sketch (#15) is very cool, with two small pictures and a chevron border! It's on my to-do list! Check it out here!

Thanks for stopping by!
