Love – ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday

Hello everyone and once again happy Friday! Don’t look now but it’s the last Friday in November and December is right around the corner! It’s also time for another ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday team A reveal. We’re ushering in the new month with a 2 page layout for your inspiration.

This month my page features a wonderful memory from my most recent trip to Las Vegas and the night I saw Cirque du Soleil Love. I usually make a point to see one Cirque show per trip, and this time I opted to see Love. I was blown away and sat in awe the entire time. It was purely magical. So without further adieu, here is my layout for this week:

Because it was Love, I got to dig out all my fun heart tools like my border punch and squeeze hand punch. I also added a punch of metallic red using my Heidi Swapp Minc machine. That card was just perfect for adding some journaling about the night. I used some paper from Bo Bunny that is wonderfully distressed and vintage, with some beautiful cursive writing and music paper, also totally perfect for the page and the event.

Here is the sketch we had for inspiration:


I know December is a busy month, but you now have an extra weekend to scrap your own version of the sketch and share it with us before the end of December for your chance to win an awesome ScrapMuch? prize! Make sure you take some time during the holidays for some scrap-therapy. It’s so worth it! Looking forward to seeing your creations!

Pumpkin Everything – ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday Reveal

Hello everyone and Happy Friday!

It’s once again time for Team A’s Sketch-y Friday reveal over on the ScrapMuch? blog.

This week I’m featuring the Simple Stories Pumpkin Spice line again. I just love this collection! Ironically it’s also the manufacturer spotlight over at ScrapMuch? and Laura has created a ton of amazing pages and projects with this line. I swear I did this layout up before I found out it was the feature of the month. Clearly I have great taste in paper!

Anyone else love pumpkin everything in the fall as much as I do? It’s always bittersweet for me because I love pumpkin but I hate that it means it’s the end of summer.

So, with all that intro, here is what I created for this week’s reveal:


Pretty much everything for this layout was from the Pumpkin Spice line. I did use my Tim Holtz coffee cup stamp to ink up the base, fitting since it is a layout about coffee after all. I also used a piece of cork from a DCWV paper pad to add more texture, as well as some patterned lines to go with the dots and florals. I cut the title with my Silhouette. I glammed up the chipboard pumpkin with my clear Wink of Stella marker. The twine for the bow is American Crafts.

Here is the sketch we had to work with for this week:

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 November 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!
