Warm & Cozy

Good morning everyone! Today Sketch N Scrap has a brand new sketch, designed by the talented Heather Hall!

OMGoodness, there is sooo many possibilities for this sketch! And here is my take on it:

warm-cozy

The pics are of my brother’s kitten, Athena. She just had a bath and looked so cute being wrapped up in a warm towel. Hence the title, Warm & Cozy. I added stitching to go for ACOT’s Title Challenge (Deanna is allowing us to go back and do as many Title Challenges from 2016 as we want!). The papers are from Best Creative, the little brad is Basic Grey, and the ric rac is from stash (which, btw, I used up!). The little cork ampersand is from Studio Calico.

I used my Cricut to cut out my title. Its the pre-loaded cart, Cricut Alphabet (I chose that to be my digi cart for January). I usually weld my letters together, but things didn’t look right this time, so I kept them as single letters.

Make sure you stop by Sketch N Scrap’s blog to check out the rest of the DT’s fabulous work with this sketch. Hope you can come and join us!

TFL! 🙂

You & Me

Good evening everyone! Its been a while since I’ve scrapped that the layout/project wasn’t for a design team! LOL. Since the holidays have winded down, I’m able to scrap a little at night now. Which is great! So to start, I used the Week One sketch from Let’s Get Sketchy:

team-a-week-1

I really fell in love with all the layers and the floral cluster. So here is my take on it:

you-me

Photo is of my husband and I at dinner from 2012 – our 5th Anniversary. The papers are all Crate Paper and the die cuts – floral piece and title – are from my Cricut “Cricut Alphabet” cartridge. That was one of the carts I challenged myself to use this month. 🙂

The chipboard flower is Bo Bunny and stencil is Studio Calico. My ink is from Clearsnap and the heart brads are from my stash.

I am also submitting this layout to 2 ACOT Challenges – Title and Ever-Changing. The title challenge is like a “Best of 2016” style challenge where Deanna is allowing us to go back and do any/all of the Title 2016 Challenges. I went back and chose April – “YOU & ME” as your title PLUS at least ONE heart. I have Four!

I also chose Ever-Changing Challenge. Susan is alternating what each month is and this month – use a stencil! Any way. So I used a dauber and my ink to use my stencil.

TFL! 🙂
