Layout Share!

Hello y'all!

I hope you had a really Happy Christmas Day! This week have been very fun and crafty for me. Today I want to share a sketch from a website completely new to me, Scrap Friends. They have a monthly sketch challenge open internationally. Their sketches are unique and completely different, I really like to use them to create. The sketch for this month is this one:

I used the idea of a diagonal line in the sketch to create the background of my page but just using a single paper. Instead of using 2 photos, I just used one small rectangular photo. For this layout, most of the products used were from the Studio Calico 34th Street Kit.

I LOVE the soft tones in this month kit. They are really girly, whimsical and playful.

Here is my layout:

What I did was cut a 12 x 12 paper in half diagonally, then I cut a strip of paper diagonally too, so it can fit with the big piece of paper. I added a couple of layers of paper behind the picture to create depth and texture in the page. For embellishment I add vellum arrows, wood veneers, doily, enamel dots and a & flair badge in the title. I left the title and the placement of the embellishments in the same spots as to keep with the sketch design.

I hope you like it and have a great day!

Joy Card!


I have been in a card mode these days and I want to share a card that I made for SC Sunday Sketch Challenge. I want to take the most of my Crate Paper Sleigh Ride 6 x 6 paper pad not only because I really love the colors in this collection but because this is a great way to stretch your supplies, using the same products but in different ways. The sketch looks like this:

I just took the sketch and flip it vertically instead of horizontal. Then I added a background paper to the card base, some pattern paper banners, the sentiment and instead of using stars, I used SC Snowflakes Wood Veneers. Here is how my card looks like:

For my 'JOY' sentiment, I used one of the Flair badges from the Santa Flair Set available in the shop. I really had fun making a card again! I'm even more happy because I was selected randomly for this week, so I won a $5.00 SC gift card.

I hope you enjoy it, and hope this gave you an idea on how to use your badges!

Merry Christmas Card


Today I wanted to do something a little bit different so I decide to share with you a card. I usually don't make cards but is always good to have a couple handy for Christmas time. Kristina Werner has a video series of Holiday Cards and a couple of days ago she did three gift card holder cards which I like a lot.

Taking the same design in mind I did my own card holder card too and this is my take:

This card is 6" x 7" and scored at 1" and then at 3 1/4". I used the AC Pow Glitter paper (that came in my Studio Calico kit) in the front part and the 6 x 6 Crate Paper Sleigh Ride paper pad. I folded the 1" side of the card and attached 2 tiny brads to make the pocket.

It's a super easy card to make and just a few supplies needed. 

Enjoy it and have a great day :)

Hi Everyone!!!!

Happy Tuesday!  It's December, can you believe it?!

It is time for another layout sharing and this is another one based on the SC Sunday Sketch Challenge. Here is the sketch for this past Sunday:

Here is my take of the sketch:

This is a dog that we adopted a few weeks ago in a Dog Store adoption fair. He's name is Scooby and he really is a good addition to our family. He's very playful and lovely dog. 

I hope you enjoy it and have a good one!!!
