So Very Happy – ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday Reveal

Hello and Happy Friday!

These last two weeks have been a crazy busy blur and here we are! It’s time for another ScrapMuch? Team A Sketch-y Friday reveal.

This week I took a lot of liberties with the sketch and I’m on the whole happy with how the layout turned out. That’s the beauty of sketches, they’re a guideline only and you can completely customize it to how you want.

So here is what I created this week:

I got to use the new Simple Stories We Are…Family line. As much as a lot of the colours in this line are great for fall photos, I feel like they totally work for this spring cherry blossom photo too. I also added in some chipboard elements for the Heidi Swapp Minc in the “Selfie” tag and the arrow on the happy card, foiled in rose gold foil. I am loving this new toy. We got to play with it at Ready…Set…Create and I wasn’t sure I’d use it much but I eventually caved in and I’m loving it.  I took some stickers from the sticker pages in the kit and pop dotted them to add some dimension, did some faux stitching, and outlined EVERYTHING. Layle Koncar from Simple Stories is a “chronic outliner”, so it was only fitting to outline this layout on Simple Stories paper.

So here is the sketch we had to work with this week:

As you can see, I slightly rotated the sketch so I could use a photo and card wth a vertical orientation.

So now it’s your turn! Hop on over to the ScrapMuch? blog and see what the rest of Team A has created for your inspiration! Take a shot at your take on the sketch and share it with us by the end of the month for a chance to win an amazing ScrapMuch? prize! As always I can’t wait to see what you create!

RSC 2015 – ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday Reveal

Hello and Happy September!

The official months of summer may be over, but I refuse to think it’s fall yet. I’m simply not ready to say goodbye to long sunny days, starry firefly nights, and soaking up as much natural Vitamin D as possible. I hate to admit this, but I spent more time working than I did making memories this summer. But, the quality of memories were top notch, and more than made up for the lack of quantity.

This week’s ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday reveal features a layout of photos from one of my summer highlights. I seriously rushed home from the event, printed photos on my Selphy and scrapbooked them just in time for the reveal upload deadline. I went to an amazing scrapbook event called Ready… Set… Create… in Burbank, CA in late August. It was an amazing weekend of scrapbooking, inspiration, learning, reconnecting with friends, and meeting amazing new friends. So. Much. Fun. Oh, and the late summer California sun didn’t hurt either.

So here is my layout:

Supplies used: CS – American Crafts; PP – October Afternoon; Embellies – Tim Holtz, Evalicious, Heidi Swapp Color Shine; Pens – American Crafts; Stamp – Dear Lizzy for American Crafts; Circle Tool – EK Success; Ink – Stash; Washi – Stash.

I have no idea why my camera kept picking up a woodgrain like finish on the cardstock. I used my circle cutter as a template to just draw the circle elements. I went for a little bit of outlining just to help pull the drawing element through the page. I also tried to keep with the event theme colours in the papers so there’s teal in the floral patterned paper, some black cardstock to anchor everything, and a polkadotted washi because my group name was the Polka Dots. So fun!

Here is the sketch we had to work with:
