Sketch-N-Scrap Reveal with Ruby Mae

Good morning all! Today’s Sketch-n-Scrap sketch is by the very talented Mandy Reedyk. I fell in LOVE with the sketch the moment I saw it! I mean, just take a look at it! Look at those fun circle pictures!

December 15th Layout

And here is my take on it:

Brandy Dec 15th Layout

I had a lot of fun with this sketch. The pictures are of my sweet girl, Ruby Mae, a couple of years ago. I decided to tilt it just give the layout more interest. I didn’t stitch my twine, I just used some strong glue to hold it down.


That quote is from a cut apart sheet from the Devoted line from Authentique. I fussy cut the paw print circle, and then added 3D adhesive to give it some dimension. The background pattern paper is also from Authentique.


The Woof! bubble is also fussy-cut from some pattern paper – from the older Woof! collection from Echo Park. The burlap pattern paper is from KaiserCraft, as well as the arrow sticker. The cork star is Freckled Fawn, and the 2 smaller veneer stars are Studio Calico, which I inked using Clearsnap cat eye ink.


That fun die cut title was a gift from my friend Sara M. She made die cuts for all my babies. The maroon pattern paper is by Karen Foster.

Hope you can stop by and play along with us over at Sketch-n-Scrap!

TFL! 🙂

A Super Cute Crafty Dog with NAS Sketch #339

Nuts About Sketches newst sketch is different and oh-so-very-fun! It uses circle photos – which sometimes I forget to do. Circle photos give a layout a different and unique look.

Sketch #339:

And here is my layout:

339 - Brandy

As you can see, I stuck with the circle theme, adding in a smaller photo near the title, scattering smaller circles with punched out paw prints and even smaller brads to tie the whole layout together.


These photos were taken on Jan 3, 2013. I was working on hubby’s birthday card and I had gotten up to get something. I came back and found Mr Jeffrey James in my chair. He is so cute! He loves getting crafty with his mommy!



I used a mix of really old stash (papers – all are Bo Bunny – from Grease Monkey and Flower Child collections) and som newer embellies (die cuts, vellum tape and brads are all from Basic Grey – Bow Ties & Knee Highs collection).

TFL! 🙂
