My Big Girls using NAS Sketch #336

Ruby and Bear have always been coined the “big girls” due to their size, and also because they are litter mates. They are always together. With these two gorgeous photos of them taken in November 2012, I thought they’d be perfect paired with all the fun Simple Stories SN@P! dog collection. The 3X3 cards and 4X6 cards worked out really really well with Nuts About Sketches latest sketch, #336:

336 - Brandy

As you can tell, I kept true to the sketch in placement of papers/photos, but only used two 4X6 photos – subsituting 2 of the 4X6’s for journaling cards in the same size, and not using any photos for all the 3X3’s.



I cut my large title with my Cricut, using “Opposites Attract”. The paw print brads are from Eyelet Outlet and the paw print pattern paper is from The Paper Studio.

TFL! 🙂

I Love My Dog with NAS Sketch #334

Nuts About Sketches Sketch #334 is AMAZING!!! You will love it and I know I’ll be saving it to use again and again!

334 - Brandy

As you can tell, I rotated the sketch to better suit my needs, along with using pattern paper instead of the small photos.


Here is what my journaling says, written on the heart:

Lady Lou was never really a fan of having her picture taken. But what was funny was that she didn’t mind having her picture taken with me. I guess you could call her a trendy dog – she enjoyed selfies! November 2012.

I outlined the heart with glitter glue by American Crafts (Zazz!)


The washi tape is by Love My Tapes, and the pattern paper is by Scrapbookers Printed Page. It was something new I had picked up in Houston at CKC last month!

TFL! 🙂


Thankful….. with NAS Sketch #331

I am happy to say this is the last set of Thanksgiving 2013 photos! Don’t you just love it when you complete a project? 🙂

With that said, the latest Nuts About Sketches sketch was MADE for these pics, as its a two pager, allowing me to finish the album.

331 - Due 8-17-14

As you can tell, instead of using 7X5’s, I used 2 6X4’s, but matting them on a 7X10 piece of pattern paper. I then continued on to use four more 6X4 photos.



With this being my last page for the Thanksgiving 2013 album, here is a close-up of my journaling:


It reads: Thanksgiving is more than just having lots of food, including fried turkey and plenty of pumpkin pie. Its more than having a day off from work. Its even more than watching a football game. Thanksgiving is about making memories with the ones you love. Thanksgiving IS Family! And family is what I’m thankful for each and every Thanksgiving.

My pattern papers are from an SEI kit, along with the rub-on and two circle stickers. The banner is made from scraps of Bo Bunny’s “Forever Fall” collection, along with the chipboard pieces. My title and the small “Things I Love” epoxy sticker is by Basic Grey. The rain dots are from Cloud 9 Design.

TFL! 🙂

Pampered Pooch using NAS Sketch #330

And here’s my layout, featuring Little Bit, my parents’ little doggie:

Brandy - 330

I used washi tape by Love My Tapes to separate the page, and used some Bo Bunny papers and chipboard embellies.


The chevrons are hand cut using what was left of the title banner, and the paw print is fussy cut from a piece from Simple Stories’ SN@P! Dog collection:


TFL! 🙂
