Sketch N Scrap Throwback Thursday #5

Good morning and welcome to Sketch N Scrap‘s 5th and final Throwback Thursday sketch! I volunteered as a hostess for this one and I selected Sketch #39 by Kelly. It premiered back in August 2013:

March 31st - Brandy as Hostess

I chose it because it had the “Rule of Three”. Three areas of where your eyes would tend to wonder, with circles! So here is my take on it:

March 31st Layout

Sketch N Scrap Throwback Thursday #2

Good morning everyone! Leah is hosting Throwback Thursday this week and she chose sketch #52 from Lisa Hidy:

I was originally going to do all pattern paper, but it just got too busy, so I went with pattern paper strips behind my photo and used a border sticker to separate the two halves:

The papers are Basic Grey “Persimmon” collection and all the enamel dots are from Doodlebug.

Sketch N Scrap Throwback Thursday #1

Good morning everyone! Sketch N Scrap has something very fun for you all this month. Each Thursday for the month of March, we will be doing a Throwback Thursday. There are five hostesses, and each one chose a sketch from Sketch N Scrap‘s amazing archive.

Today, Lori has selected Sketch #17 by Lisa Hidy:

March 3rd - Lori as Hostess

I loved the sketch so much, I knew I wouldn’t change a thing! So here’s my take on it:

March 3rd Layout

The photo is of my sister in law during her Bridal Photo Shoot in September 2010. All of my papers are by Pebbles and die cuts are from MME “Fancy That”. The small strips of washi tape is from The Paper Studio.

Make sure you stop by Sketch N Scrap all month long to check out all the fun sketches! Hope you can play along and as always, TFL! 🙂

Sketch-N-Scrap Twistback Thursday!

Good afternoon everyone! December’s Twistback Thursday sketch at Sketch-n-Scrap is brought to you by Lisa Hidy, Sketch #56. I remember this sketch very well. It was one of the sketches I did as a Guest Designer for Sketch-N-Scrap back in May 2014. Its a very versatile sketch.

Throwback Thursday December 10th

The TWIST for this one is to use b/w photos only. I sometimes forget to use b/w photos, especially when the papers clash with the pics, but I do truly love the result.

For this reveal, I chose pics of my sweet Penny Lane. She’s about a year old in these photos. Just look at that sweet little face! LOVE her so much!

Brandy Dec 10th Layout

All of my products – and I mean ALL – are Echo Park’s “Bark” Collection! This is the year of the doggies in the scrapbooking world. I can’t seem to keep up with all the new papers/embellies! ❤

Make sure you stop by Sketch-N-Scrap and check out this sketch, along with the others this month!

TFL! 🙂

Throwback Thursday with Sketch n Scrap

Sketch-n-Scrap has a Throwback Thursday Challenge on every 2nd Thursday of the month. They select a sketch from the past, and then add a TWIST. This month, we are to use Sketch #44, and the twist is to use a specific shape as your background and embellishments.

Throwback Thursday August 13th

I chose to use Hexagons. Not a common shape, but I do have a Cricut machine! 🙂

August 13th Throwback Thursday Layout

The pics were taken about a month after we moved into our new home. My little dog Jeffrey loves to “help”. He posed in this chair near my Mixed Media and small embellishment center. Like HE did all of that! 🙂

Here are a few close-ups. I cut a 2-inch hexagon out of some pattern paper and stamped a paw print on it.


All the veneer hexagons are by Heidi Swapp. My papers are Fancy Pants “Park Bench”.


Hope you join us over at Sketch-N-Scrap and play along!

TFL! 🙂

Today our dreams came true

Gold, it goes with anything and everything. And not only is it in the Fashion world, but our scrappy world has picked up gold too! You see it in washi tape, sequins, pattern papers. The list just goes on and on. And that is what I based my next layout on. Lots of gold embellishments. Take a look!

Today our dreams came true



My gold items are sequins, washi tape, brad, pattern paper, and transparency. And that is what my Fashion Challenge (that starts today and runs thru July 17th) is based on. And its inspired by this image I found on Pinterest:


My design is based on Sketch-N-Scrap’s Throwback Thursday Sketch #6

The twist this month was to use washi. I love washi! 🙂

The complete list of items/manufactures are below:
Pattern papers, white alphas, green brad, w/b brad, transparency: Teresa Collins
washi tapes: Queen & Co

TFL! 🙂
