Layout: Together and Nuts About Sketch’s sketch #311

I had SOO Much fun working with Nuts About Sketch’s sketch #311.

Here is my layout, featuring my mom with my aunt and cousin:

311 - Brandy

And here is the great sketch that Shawn created:

311 - Due Mar 30

I dug deep into my stash and used some older papers from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby). The colors are rich and after adding layers, and foam adhesive, really livened up the papers. Here are some close ups:




The veneers are by Studio Calico, which I misted in three colors – “Its Red” and “Peacock” – both by Tattered Angels; and “Coffee Bean” which is by Inkadinkado. The cork arrows are by Fancy Pants.

TFL! 🙂

Layout: Treasured Memories

This layout of my mom, aunt, and cousin literally just fell into place so smoothly. Its based on a sketch, and the One Word Challenge over at ACOT.

Treasured Memories

The papers are by The Paper Studio, and so is the word art stickers (The Family Heirloom Kit). The flowers are by K & Company; bling flourish is by Zva Creative; arrows are by Fancy Pants; and I used my SewEasy for the stitching. Here are some close-ups:


The layout is based on Sketchabilities Sketch #111:

I loved the misting, which I used in “Coffee Bean” by Inkadinkado; and the large circle.

I also used this layout for the One Word Challenge at ACOT. The word is “TREASURE”, and you have to use it as your title, but in any format. The Paper Studio kit had these word art stickers, which in my opinion, would be perfect for a title!

TFL! 🙂


Layout: Live Laugh Love

Let’s Get Sketchy’s latest sketch is so versatile, it worked really REALLY well with this photo I have of my mother with her sisters and a sister in law at my grandparents’ birthday party in 2012.

Here’s the layout:

Live, Laugh, Love

I dug deep into my stash and used pattern paper from The Paper Studio’s “Bella Bohemia” stack, with stickers from the “Family Heirloom” kit. Both were purchased from Hobby Lobby a couple of years ago. Here are some close-ups:



As you can tell, I used some foam adhesive to give the stickers more dimension.

Here is the sketch:

Team B Week 1 March

I love those circles, which I incorporated into my own layout using the WRMKs SewEasy Circle.

This layout is also for the ACOT’s What’s On TV? Challenge. The hostess chose “Little House on the Prairie” as the show, and the challenge was to use at least one photo that shows the exterior of a house.

TFL! 🙂
