Stuck?! Sketches: October 15th Sketch and Reveal

Hello, everyone! Just a quick post to let you in on what I designed for today's release over at Stuck?! Sketches. Here's the sketch by the great Laura Whitaker:

And here is my design:

A beautiful pic of my scrappy friend, Annik - one of those that I met at a crop and instantly connected with! The beautiful background piece is one of the patterned papers in Jillibean Soup's newest collection, Soup Staples III. The rest of the patterned papers are from my very first Scrapbook & Cards Today's Crop & Create bag I received in March 2012 - Basic Grey's Konnichiwa and Pink Paislee's Prairie Hill. Also used some Stampin' Up silver foil paper and paper clip, as well as some Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze, Dina Wakley black gesso by Ranger, Studio Calico cork hearts, Maya Road heart banner clip, and stitching using some DMC floss and some Bazzill Basics and Tim Holtz stitching templates. And yes, that's a plain Jane run of the mill paper clip you also see on there. ;)

Wanna see what the rest of the design team came up with? Hop on over right here and be prepared to be inspired - BIGTIME! And yes, prizes are up for grabs for those of you who participate over on today's Stuck?! Sketches reveal. Just link your designs using today's sketch over on the Stuck?! Sketches blog and get a chance to win two fabulous prizes - a $20 gift certificate from 7 Dots Studio and a prize from Wycinanka. Woo!Hoo!

Happy scrapping!

Stuck?! Sketches: October 1st Sketch and Reveal

Good day to you all, dear scrappers! Another month has rolled around so it's time for another Stuck?! Sketches reveal! WOO!HOO! Here is Laura Whitaker's fabulous sketch we lucky gals designed with this week:

We also had a colour palette to work with, by the wonderful Color Me Scrappy crew:

And here is what I designed:

Had so, so, SO much fun creating this layout! That little cutie-pie bum you see is my sweet Éloïse last year, at Hallowe'en. She was a mere three weeks old, but as soon as I saw these pjs over at Carter's, I just had to get them for her. They barely fit her as she was in her three-week growth spurt! Big shout out to my friend, Isabelle, who took this photo for me.

Tons, tons, TONS of My Mind's Eye on this one. Recognize the collection? Or the collections, I shouls say? That's right! Boo to You! and Blackbird. Also added some Stampin' Up cardstock, Magic Mesh, Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze, Making Memories staples, Kaisercraft wood veneer, Doodlebug rubons, October Afternoon and American Crafts alphas. some stitching using my Bazzill Basics stitching template and some DMC floss, and that fence... mmm... I remember where I bought it, right Paper Tales? Hee!Hee!

Wanna see what the other girls on the design team came up with? Inspiration for the masses I tell ya! Hop on right over here and be prepared for your scrappy senses to start tingling! ;) And if you design something yourself using this sketch and link it to today's reveal over at Stuck?! Sketches, you'll get a chance to win a $20 gift certificate over at 7 Dots Studio or two large pieces of chipboard (a $20 value) over at Scrapmatts! Who doesn't like to scrap with a bit of incentive?! Hee!Hee!

Happy scrapping!
