Kitty Kisses – Canadian Scrapbooker October Sketch

I’ve been spending more time in my happy place creating and I’ve been loving every second! I’ve had the Canadian Scrapbooker October Sketch Challenge sketch up in my tabs for a while because I thought it would be fun to play along with. It turned out to be a bigger challenge than I anticipated, but I’m still happy with the end result. It goes without saying I loved the process of playing with paper.

So here is the sketch:

And here is my take on the sketch:

Untitled
Supplies used: Cardstock-Die Cuts With a View; Patterned Paper-Graphic 45; Button-American Crafts; Thickers-American Crafts; Sequins-Teresa Collins, Fancy Pants; Oval Sticker-7Gypsies; Thread-Bazzill Basics; Tab-Teresa Collins for Fiskars punch; Enamel dots-Simple Stories.

I feel like this is a lot more clean and simple than I’ve been scrapping lately, but I’m totally ok with that. I also took a little bit of license on the sketch, and I’m also totally ok with that too. I think it’s part because the Graphic 45 papers are so visual I don’t want to clutter it up too much. I also used a technique Laura Whitaker shared on her blog for embellishing buttons. It’s funny because I’ve often put a large bling in the middle of a button, but never thought to use some of the patterned paper from the collection. I also hand stitched which is a total rarity for me these days, despite loving the look on other layouts.

For the record, yes, that really is me in a cat onesie. Yes my sweet Socks is giving me kisses on my chin. She is a very affectionate cat with me in all ways, including scratchy kitty kisses!

Thanks for popping by! And stay tuned, Team A is up again this week on the ScrapMuch? blog with another Sketch-y Friday reveal, and it’s awesome!
