Sketch N Scrap Sketch #105

Hello everyone and good morning! Today we are showcasing Sketch #105 designed by the talented Kelly Holifield!

May 15th Layout

This sketch has so many possibilities! And here is what I came up with!

Selfies with Momma

I used some super cute selfies of me with Ruby and Jeffrey taken a few years ago. Those die cut hearts are from the Cricut cart “Edge to Edge”. They were free in the CCR the week of May 10th. I love that cartridge so much, I think I’m going to have to buy it!


The pattern papers are from Basic Grey, Hey Girl! collection, with washi tape by American Crafts. The chipboard pieces are all from Bo Bunny (see May Use It or Lose It Challenge). I thought the addition of the paw prints inside the heart-shape word bubble was a great idea!


I just LOVE that banner! And get this! I cut those hearts FIRST…before realizing to pick up those chipboard pieces from Bo Bunny. And the greatest thing is is the banner fits PERFECTLY across that one heart! Win-win!


My title is a mixture of My Little Shoebox and Thickers from Amy Tangerine. I colored the banner using 3 different shades of gelatos from Faber-Castell. I did that to submit this layout for the Title Challenge over at ACOT this month. We are to paint under our title. I really love the look of this technique!

I also combined it with the Cherryland Challenge. This month, I went with the painting for Princess Maraschino as inspiration. I went with pics of me and the pups, using a cherry red cardstock for the die cuts. The rest of the layout is quite soft in colors.

May 5th Card

I abosloutely LOVE the flowers on this, with the banners and the sentiment. A very simple card for any occasion.

Let Them Eat Cake

I chose a cardstock base, with scraps from Basic Grey “Paper Cottage” collection. I used foam adhesive for the sentiment and the flower centers.

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!

Sketch-N-Scrap Card: Scarves, Mittens, & Hats, Oh My!

Sketch-n-Scrap‘s Dec 5th card sketch is designed by Mandy Reedyk. Its got TONS of possibilites!

December 5th Card

Whenever I see a circle on a card sketch, I usually gravitate towards using a doily. But this time, I dug thru my winter scrapbooking stuff and came across a super cute (and quite large) snow globe chipboard piece. Once I chose that piece, everything else fell into place:

Cute, huh!?! Everything I used is by Bo Bunny “Snow Day” collection!

TFL and as always, please make sure to stop by Sketch-N-Scrap and I hope you play along with us this month! 🙂

Sketch-N-Scrap #87

Sketch-N-Scrap‘s next sketch was really fun to work with. I used a fun photo of my uncle, taken during Thanksgiving last year. I mixed and match alot of masculine papers from MME and KaiserCraft, adding some die cut moustaches.

August 15th Layout

Layout Sketch August 15th

I stuck to the sketch pretty well, replacing the journaling with the larger strips of moustaches.


My title is on some torn corrugated cardstock from Fancy Pants, alphas from My Little Shoebox, and arrow paper clip is from Freckled Fawn.



The row of moustaches are actually cut out from the wood grain paper, and I backed it from a light blue from MME. The back side of the wood grain paper is the darker, brown shade, which I used the positive pieces for my scalloped circle embellishment and title.

Hope you can join us at Sketch-N-Scrap and TFL! 🙂

Sketch-N-Scrap Card #55

The first card sketch for August at Sketch-n-Scrap is so versatile. Kelly sure did outdo herself with the design.

Card August 5th

Here is my take on it:

August 5th Card

I know. It doesn’t look anything like the sketch. But I came across this cute little chipboard house from an older Bo Bunny collection (Alora) and I just knew I had to use it! Pair the card with the colors from the house, add a doily, some chipboard hearts and a sentiment, and wholla! You’ve got yourself a super cute card!

Hope ya head over to Sketch-N-Scrap and join in on the fun!

TFL! 🙂

Card July 5th

And my card:

Brandy Card July 5th

When I saw this sketch, I knew I wanted to use a doily. Everything else just slowly came to me. I used WRMK’s paper and sentiment tag; Doodlebug doily and enamel dots.
