Sketch #6

I thought I would create a card sketch and I kept it fairly basic. This way you can add as much or as little as you like while maintaining the basic sketch idea.

For my card, I worked with a stamp from Stamping Bella called Kiss Me You Fool.

I colored the image using my Prismacolor Pencils in shades of pink and brown. Then I paired the finished image with some paper and ribbon from my stash. I used the Martha Stewart Loopy Punch (love it!), added a button that I altered with a gemstone and finished it off with a gorgeous pin!

I hope it inspires you to create a card this week:)

Happy creating~

Sketch #5

I attended a crop on the weekend and a very sweet scrapbooker came over and said that she really loved my sketches and that she hoped I would be posting some new ones soon! I have been wanting to create some new sketches, but my schedule lately has been just a wee bit busy. But now with a wedding and a graduation behind us and some bookkeeping out of the way, I can finally get back to my sketch making and scrapbooking.

Here is a brand new sketch for you...

and here is a layout to inspire you:)

I used a combination of old and new papers along with some old chipboard letters and some fabulous new alpha stickers by October Afternoon. The photos I used were from our trip to Myrtle Beach last summer and I titled the layout, Root Beer Makes You Giddy!

You see, we went into a really cool place that brewed their own Root Beer. It had a very nostalgic feel to it and we each got something to drink. My ds ordered a Root Beer float and for some reason he got the giggles when he was drinking it. I am not sure why that was, but it made for a fun time as we all joined in the laughter.

I hope this sketch motivates you to do up a layout or two. If you use it, I would love to hear from you.

Happy creating~
