Stuck?! Sketches: June 15th Sketch and Reveal

Hello, everyone! Can't believe that we're already mid-June! But that means that it's time for another reveal over Stuck?! Sketches. YAHOO! Here's the Laura Whitaker sketch we worked with this time around:

Now, I can't tell you just how much I LOVE this sketch. When I first saw it, I swear to you know who, my heart started to pitter patter just a bit faster. :) Here's what I created with it:

Mm-mm, that's right! Loved using the old Fancy Pants collections a few weeks ago that I just hauled them back out again for this design. Do you remember which ones? Yes! Christmas Magic and Hot Chocolate!! Also used a Martha Stewart border punch, Tim Holtz' Splatters Stencil with some of my oh, so favourite StäzOn ink in Timber Brown, a Bazzill Basics stitching template with some DMC floss, a few pieces of Queen & Co. washi tape, a couple of Studio Calico arrow wood veneers and some OLD metal snowflake embellishments that have been in my stash for SO long that I have no clue where they came from! And that title? Gotta love my Silhouette Cameo! Downloaded Studio Calico's February phrases and this one was perfect for this layout. Just perfect.

Wanna see what the other Stuck?! Sketches design team members designed this week? Hop on over right over here! And if you play along and link your own design to today's reveal over at Stuck?!, you'll have a chance to win some prizes from our great challenge sponsors, a $50 gift certificate from Flying Unicorn - It's about...

Happy scrapping!

Stuck?! Sketches: June 1st Sketch and Reveal

So happy that June is here! Why? It's time for another Stuck?! Sketches reveal, of course!! Hee!Hee! Here is the fabulous sketch Laura Whitaker gave the design team to work with this week:

Love those circles! But you know me - Having a horizontal 4X6 photo I absolutely wanted to scrap, I flipped the sketch to the left so that it looked like this:

And here is what I came up with:

Used tons and tons and tons of My Mind's Eye's Cut & Paste - Adorbs collection on this one. Also dashed some Creative Embellishments' circle chipboard pieces on there with some punched circles using Stampin' Up's silver foil paper. Yes, those inked coffee stains were done using Tim Holtz' Splatters stencil and StäzOn in my favourite shade, Timber Brown. Also added some Studio Calico wood veneer hearts, a Maya Road metal heart embellishment, We R Memory Keepers staples, stitching using my very handy Tim Holtz ruler and my ever-so-faithful DMC floss, and finally, some good ol' alphas by American Crafts and My Mind's Eye. Oh! And those navy and flowered circles were done by using my EK Success circle scissor, of course! Best little gadget I've seen out there in a long time!! SO handy! And the photo? Our sweet Éloïse on her father's shoulder when she was just a wee month a half old, taken by our friend, the very talented Philippe Dumas.

Here are few close-ups:
