Ok, I know I’ve said this before but seriously.. where on earth have these last 2 weeks gone?!? I’ve been uber busy family time, a super fun weekend watching some amazing skating and that little thing called work. Time flies when you’re having fun indeed! Anyways, it’s another ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday and Team A is up with their reveals this week!
Today I’m sharing another layout with pictures from my last Vegas trip. I’m not sure how I feel about this layout because it’s a lot busier than I normally create. I actually have added a few extra sequins since I uploaded this layout to ScrapMuch? to give it a bit more of a traditional “me” feel and I’m still not sure; but to me it helped.
Supplies used: Cardstock – Bazzill Basics; Patterned Paper – Graphic45; Die Cut Machine – Tim Holtz Vagabond; Rosette Die – Tim Holtz Alterations; Flowers – Bella Blvd; Brad – Pink Paislee; Twine – Close to my Heart; Charms – Tim Holtz Fragments; Feather – Bella Blvd; Letters & Flourish – Tim Holtz Grungeboard; Mist – Heidi Swapp Color Shine; Tab Punch – Teresa Collins for Fiskars; Sewing Machine – Janome
And here are some detail shots (yes, really!). I made 2 of my own embellishments using an old technique with Tim Holtz Fragments, Glossy Accents and good quality patterned paper. You can see the first Fragment embellishment in the cluster in the first detail shot. The other is at the top left of the page in the other embellishment cluster.
The Lucky Cat is a new art installation at the Cosmopolitan and I wanted to make sure I got a visit and a picture in before I left. Thankfully I had just enough time before seeing Jeff Dunham on my last night. The way it works with Lucky Cat is you press her raised paw and she will give you either a fortune, some free plays at the casino, or reportedly even a free stay at the Cosmopolitan. I got a very cute fortune wishing me a good night that night, and a good life. I’ll take it. And I had a great night that night.
Here is our inspiration sketch. As you can see I took a little bit of liberty with it to make it work with the pictures.
So now it’s your turn! Hop on over to the ScrapMuch? blog and see what the rest of Team A has created. Incidentally this is the last reveal for the current Team A as it exists. The Design Team call is over and the announcement will be made very soon. One thing is for sure, there will be some new faces on both teams! So make sure you visit and leave them some blog love! And as always, make sure you create your own layouts to share with us in the link-up for a chance to win a ScrapMuch? prize! Have a wonderful weekend! I know I’ll be scrapbooking!
Here is a run down of our Sketch-y Friday rules. Just link up your creations in our sidebar to be entered into a random draw for our monthly prize. You have until April 29th, at midnight to participate in any of this month’s sketch challenges, each linkup tool will remain open until that date! You may take some artistic license with your adaptation of the sketches, however if you choose to use a double page sketch for a single page layout you may only enter once per sketch, not once per side.
If you are playing along with more than one challenge you will need to link each of them up via a separate blog post for the link up tool to work. (International participants may be required to pay some shipping fees.) Good luck, we cannot wait to see what you create!
