A Day in the Life of Kandie using NAS sketch #328

I had alot of fun working with this new sketch by Nuts About Sketches. Here is the awesome two-page sketch:

328 - Due 7-27-14

And here is my take on it:

328 - Brandy



As you can see, I swapped out one of the 4X6 picture for a 4X6 journaling spot, and made a 7X5 photo mat for the other photo on the 2nd page.

Here are some close-ups:

I used banners for my title, and added the chipboard flourish with some bling to fill the empty space:

All Wrapped Up using NAS Sketch #325

I had so much fun with Nuts About Sketches sketch #325 as it is so versatile and allows the scrapper to go any which way!

First, here is the awesome sketch. Usually I post my layout first, but you guys have got to see the sketch I got to work with!

325 - Due 7-6-14

This sketch is all about the hexagons. Its quite trendy right now, but unfortunetly, I don’t have hexagon template or die cut or punch. So…with that said, I went with circles!

325 - Brandy

This little guy is named Little Bit, and he belongs to my mother. He is “her baby” and just LOVES being wrapped up in this baby blanket. Here are some close-ups:



The papers are all Bo Bunny, including the small chipboard stars. The die cuts and stickers are by Simple Stories and the alphas are Webster’s Pages.

TFL! 🙂

Layout: All you need is love….and a dog!

I had alot of fun pulling out all sorts of papers, ribbon, and embellishments for this next layout. Its based on a PageMaps sketch as well as an ACOT Challenge.

Here is my layout…featuring my sweet Lady Bear:

All you need is love...

And its based on this PageMaps sketch, which is part of a contest that PageMaps is hosting:


Here are some close-ups:


The black droplets are made from black paint and water, mixed in a little mister, and I used an eye dropper to get the droplets. It is very economically and convenient..especially when you run out of black mist (like I did). 😉


I used Bazzill’s stencil dog collection to stitch the word “Ruff” on the journaling spot.

The challenge at ACOT that I’m combining this layout with is for the Disney Challenge.  What I like about the Disney Challenges at ACOT is that the hostess makes them to where they do NOT need to be a Disney Layout. Very fun. For the month of July, the hostess chose the following digi kit for us to use as inspiration:


We had to use ALL of the colors on our project – Red/Yellow/Black/White, along with metallics and another color. I chose to use a bit of orange (found in my title). We also have to use two or more patterns or elements that are found in the this kit. It can be the polka dot paper with the flowers; mickey ears and the bows. I chose to use polka dot pattern paper (Basic Grey “RSVP” collection) and ric rak (found in my stash).

My complete product listing:
Chipboard pieces, brad, black paw print paper, yellow tag paper, journaling spot: Bo Bunny
washi, tag: Queen & Co
red polka dot paper: Basic Grey
stitching: template by Bazzill
ric rac, misting: from stash

TFL! 🙂
